San Juan Surf Resort, La Union

This year, I wanted to go on a beach trip for my birthday. For us living in Manila, we would normally plan to go to Zambales or Batangas. I've never been to La Union or as (my fellow) millennials call "ELYU" but I've always been curious about the place and when Elyu came up in one of my viber chats with friends, we unanimously decided to go there this summer and set it on my birthday weekend.

And so 2 weeks ago, together with my husband, my nieces and 3 of my closest friends, I welcomed my 35th at the surfing capital of Northern Philippines.
