Celebrating Akee's Birthday at Cebu Westown Lagoon

April 14, 2015 Tuesday - we decided to take our leaves so we could celebrate our daughter's first birthday.



Our first stop was Basilica del Sto. Niño to supposedly attend mass. But because there was no scheduled mass that time, we just lit up some candles.

We took a few more photos before we head out for lunch.

We had our lunch at Jollibee Parkmall just to save us some time and money.

After we had our lunch, we proceeded to Cebu Westown Lagoon which is just located at MO2 Restobar. It is a less than five-minute-ride from Parkmall.

Upon arriving, I had to inquire first about the rates.

Entrance fee for adults is Php300. This already includes one free drink that you could claim at the pool bar.

The rate for the small cottage which is good for 12-16 persons is Php600.
The big cottage which is good for 20-25 persons is Php1200.

And wait! Those are the rates if you go there by Monday to Friday (DAY ONLY).
The rates differ if it's a holiday or a weekend, and yes - the prices are doubled!

It's really a bit pricey especially since it is located on the city-proper.


Sorry for the blurred picture.
Thinking it would be impractical to rent a cottage so big (since there are only three (3) of us excluding our child), I asked if they have some kind of area where we could just place our things.

Fortunately enough, they offer some picnic tables which are free. But it is on a first come, first serve basis. The place was not crowded that time so we were able to secure a table. Lucky!

I also saw some who were just using lockers. Not sure if those are free, though.




They are also strict with the swimwear. If in case you went all the way there and you forgot to bring a proper swimming attire (such as myself), don't worry. They have swimming attires ready for rent at Php100 with Php100 deposit.




There were two pools - one for the kids and one for the grown-ups.

I didn't waste much time and took a dip in the kiddie pool.

The water was so cool - just perfect for the hot weather.



I loved the kiddie pool because it has so much stuff in it that would honestly bring out the inner child in you.

The slides is a common thing for swimming pools, but they also have that one giant pail of water above that would splash down water once it is full! I know it's hard to get what I am trying to say, but putting myself in the shoes of the little kids swimming around, I believe they are excitedly waiting for the giant pail to get full.

There's also this mini-cave thing where it constantly "rains".

We rested for a while as my daughter was already sleepy.

They also offer food so we bought some clubhouse sandwich and fries.
And oh, it's okay to bring food just as long as it is not lechon. They also charge corkage fee for each alcoholic drink.

Moving on, when my little one had already woken up, we went back swimming. This time, on the "grown-ups" pool. They have this huge "stone bridge" thing where water always flows, as if it is raining - same with the cave-thing at the kiddie pool.




It was already getting late and we still need to go home for some "birthday dinner".

So we tidied up our area and got ready to go.

But first, pictures!




Our little Akee just learned how to walk so she really enjoyed walking long distances at the playground.

We bid the place goodbye and proceeded to fetch my mother who asked us how our day was.




We then went home to have our dinner.

I would also like to thank my generous manager for giving us a birthday cake (from 10 Dove Street) for our little girl.

Akee is not really much of a cake fan, but I was pretty sure she really liked this one.

It's been a very great day and we are very thankful to everyone, especially to Daddy God for all these blessings He has bestowed upon us and our family.

To God be the glory.

Happy birthday, my little Akisa ♥
