We all know her as a beautiful actress who has graced our screens with her acting performance, but with us - Alice is all about her journey as motherhood and what it means taking her bundle of joy along on a vacation in her most favorite place ever, Bali.
“We’re no strangers to the paradise that is Bali. We actually went there when Alita was in my belly. This time around, we were excited to bring and introduce her to this gorgeous nature in our own country. We loved to let her know all the best sensations of playing along with the sand, sea and the sun.”
Alice admitted to having her doubts and fears of traveling with her baby. It’s her first time taking the trip with Alita but this new momma had done her fair share of prep work prior. “I was scared but felt up to the challenge at the same time. I did a lot of googling, blog reading and even asking people around for traveling tips. You can say I was very well prepared,” she said.
All of her diligence sure paid off, because Alice and Alita had a total blast during their trip to Bali. Not only did everything went smoothly with Alita, but Bali too displayed the best weather during their time there. “Alita had a great appetite and we enjoyed our time there very much. It’s so worth it!”
Furthermore, Alice shared with us some tips that she learnt on how to have your own relaxing time while keeping your little ones entertained. “It’s all about waterplay so make sure you prepare floats, water guns and other toys. Kids always love water so keep them entertained while you relax and keep watch or simply play along with them,” she said. Waterplay keeps children active and have positive impacts to their appetite and immune system, she further shared.
We also asked Alice what her most treasured memories from her family Bali trip. “It’s watching sunset on the beach and visiting the zoo with Alvin and Alita,” she recalled. “To have SweetEscape photography service along means a lot to us. Especially since Alvin and I love photography, so there’s an extra appreciation for good holiday photo results,” she told us about bringing us along.
“Everytime I look at our Bali photos, I can’t help but be reminded of such a precious time that we shared as a family. It’s like going back to a happy place, a happy time in an instant. This gives me such positive energy and happiness, simply through a glance of a picture,” Alice said.
For this reason, Bali will always remain as a special place for this beauty. She told us, “I always come back to Bali, because of everything it has, from beautiful sceneries, chic accommodations and eateries, clean fresh air and that siesta ambiance that makes everyday feels like holiday!” Simply said, Bali is Alice Norin’s wonderland.
After months (or even years!) of meticulous preparation for your big day, wouldn't be a nice reward to spend a week in a deluxe villa with a view of the turquoise sea, all to yourselves? It's probably one of the things that a couple really looks forward to, not just to take a rest from all of the happenings, but to get to spend some time with his/her lifetime partner.
Here's a list of the best honeymoon destinations in the Philippines to help you decide:
Tucked in the heart of the Visayas region is Bohol, a tropical getaway where the Chocolate Hills could be found and where the tarsiers hail from. Bohol has that laid back feel, perfect for couples seeking both nature and privacy. Many accommodations in Panglao Island offer luxurious amenities with stunning views of the sea, or even infinity pools right outside the rooms. In Bohol is also Alona Beach, an unspoiled stretch of white sand in Panglao Island which is comparable to that of Boracay.
When in Siargao, you'll literally and figuratively feel like on Cloud 9 as aside from experiencing its well-known surfing spot, it also boasts a really serene atmosphere because it isn't that too crowded yet, unlike the other tourist spots in the country. Get to experience riding with the waves as your first water activity together, or maybe have your "You jump, I jump" moment at the Sugba Lagoon, a site in between mangroves and rock formations in Del Carmen.
In a place where every corner is breathtakingly beautiful, you sure wouldn't run out of love in Batanes. Have that escape before you face your married life duties as you walk through its quiet spots and serene landscapes such as that of the Vayang Rolling Hills, Sabtang Island, and the Nakabuang Arch.
From underground rivers, hidden lagoons, and scuba diving sites to sophisticated villas and beachfront bars, Palawan is the paradise that you deserve to experience before you face the real world as a married couple. Whether you choose to stay in Coron, Puerto Princesa, or El Nido, all three makes Palawan one of the best destinations for honeymooners in the Philippines because of the endless adventures you could experience here.
If you are that chill couple who's into staycations and R&Rs, Tagaytay's the place for you. With the vibes same as Baguio CIty, experience foggy mornings that'll make you feel like teenagers in love as you cuddle and do small talk over hot chocolate. Accommodations here are affordable which may come convenient if you think you've spent so much on your wedding, but still deserve a memorable honeymoon.
Now it's up to you to decide on where that most-awaited honeymoon should take place. No matter where you go, be sure to have fun and enjoy your moments together!
