Puerto Galera – Tamaraw Beach Resort

Last February 7, our company, Circle Graphics had an outing at Puerto Galera, Mindoro. Our boss, Frank Dunn booked us at the Tamaraw Beach Resort. For a start (and I’m not sure if I mentioned this before in my past blog or some other blog), I’m not the type that goes out a lot. One would usually find me at home sleeping, in front of the computer, or doing household chores (such a dweeb). Places where I love to go to usually are the malls. But, nevertheless, I’ve been to a few outings with past company colleagues, friends, and family. But this recent company outing is quite special because . . . I have with me a brand new Olympus camera which I’ve won last December in our company Christmas party raffle promo, yay.

If my memory serves me right, the last outing I had in which I carried my own camera was in 2001, wherein I had an analog camera that used film instead of a memory card. It was somewhere in Laguna, and I’m still keeping a few of the pictures that withstood the test of time.

Our trip to Puerto Galera started at LRT Buendia, Manila. We set up our meeting place at 6 am, near a 7–11 convenience store, just behind JAM Liner. We left at 7 am, with Batangas pier as our first destination. This trip took us less than two hours. We then travelled by boat for another two hours.

By the time we reached Tamaraw Beach Resort, a beachfront hotel, it was almost 12 pm. Now the following events that occurred I wish I could elaborate clearly, but since this is the first time I’ve blogged about an outing, I simply have no idea how to express every good thing that has happened during our stay at the hotel. But to sum it up, Tamaraw Beach Resort is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are great, well for me they are. As for the price, I generally don’t have an idea since our boss paid for everything. Not that I don’t care, I just think that snooping around other people’s business is not my concern. Anyway, our boss liked the place and so I guess, the price was right.

Following are a few of the photos I’ve taken during our stay. And next time, if ever there happens to be an outing again, I would post much earlier. Posting late makes me forget a lot of details.
