I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it here, but I’m a product of Antipolo City. I spent most of my childhood running around our family compound situated at the end of Sumulong Highway. Our compound was known as the White House.
We’ve sold our property there, but a relative of ours kept their home and converted it into a resort. The resort is now named LeBlanc. In the last month alone, I’ve been to LeBlanc Resort twice. Had a Pressed Flowers workshop once, and a family reunion/sleepover once.
Tita Myrna made this mural in honor of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. I wrote about the Antipolo Cathedral in a previous entry HERE.
When we were younger, we kept bugging our parents and grandparents for a swimming pool. It wasn’t until now, over a decade later, that our childhood wish came true.
Food at LeBlanc is delicious. We were served plates of food tasting during the Pressed Flowers workshop. What a treat that was! At our family gathering, my Japanese aunt gave in to my request of DIY sushi. Yummy.
Beautiful flower arrangements are all around LeBlanc. I was so tempted to steal this bouquet to press the petals for later.
The Pressed Flowers workshop was an intimate gathering. It was a group of family and friends–the best kind of crafting, for sure.
I wasn’t able to take photos of everyone’s work (because we were too busy making things). Here are a few shots I managed to sneak in that afternoon.
Gotta love them flowers.
