Punta Bulata 

Another week,  another story..  This time,  allow us to take you out of town….  Hmmm a plane ride perhaps for about an hour in a place called the “city of smiles” and experience  a weekend like no other.  I’m  sure you’ve seen us practically going everywhere each weekend,  appreciating various sites,  devouring on the best local cuisines,  frolicking and enjoying life like any epicure should. 

On this particular weekend though, I’d say is far different from the others because we also participated in a yoga retreat where we got to experience new things and also enjoyed very healthy dishes all weekend!

Before I tell you more about the FLOW luxe yoga escape, I’d like to introduce you first to this awesome place where I think people should never miss when they go to Negros Occidental.. PUNTA BULATA!!

PUNTA BULATA may be 4 hrs away from Bacolod- Silay airport but by the time we arrived, I realized it was all worth the long ride! 

Let me show you around…

After relaxing for a few hours, we were all called to meet up at the hall for the opening talk then followed by a Yin Yoga session with Monica. It was both our 1st time to try Yin Yoga and we  found it to be very calming!

It suddenly started to rain heavily so while waiting for it to cease, the group had a yoga showdown!

Danjugan island is no doubt another must visit place when in Negros Occidental. Too bad the weather didn’t permit us to experience its waters. It would have been really great to go snorkeling since the water was super clear! I hope there will be a next time! 

 

We were just in time for dinner when we reached Punta Bulata later that afternoon….
