Batangas is one of the nearest places to see when you got the itch for the beach for those whoi live in the metro. It is just 2-3 hours away from Manila and offers various beaches with clear waters and fine semi-white sand.
My friends and I decided that we should go to Nasugbu, Batangas last March 22-23. The main reason was actually to have some fun time with Jade before she goes to Bahrain, but she didn't push that plan of going abroad. Well, not yet. Nevertheless, it was a plan and we wanted to make it happen. Aldrin has relatives there, and he said that we could stay overnight at his lola's house. Unfortunately, Keishien couldn't come because of work time conflict.
We left for Batangas at ten in the morning. We commuted to Mendez-crossing and waited for the bus that could take us to Nasugbu. After almost two and a half hours of travel, we finally reached the house of Aldrin's lola. They prepared meals for us and after a while, we were ready to swim at Matabungkay!
There were a lot of people swimming already. The sand and the water were inviting. After looking for a place where we could put our things, we changed clothes and dived into the water.
