You may just wake one early morning. A surprise yuletide song hits your ears. And then, you listen to it. You tap your foot on the floor as close your eyes while listening to the breathy and smoky voice of your favorite artist to sing the Christmas carol. Oh, you also just love to hear the mesmerizing and spellbinding voice of Jose Mari Chan’s Silent night, Perfect Christmas, A Wish on Christmas Night, and more. You cannot even think about it after the year-long plague of the coronavirus. Without looking at the calendar, we even frown in frustration that we forget to count our blessings for the whole-year, life experiences. And now, the holiday season is in the air. We have nothing to write on a Christmas bucket list. Well, we are here to cheer you up. Instead of losing your grip to hope for a good life ahead, we invite you to explore some places like Lapaken White Beach Resort that you have never seen and visited before.
In the Philippines, Filipinos celebrate Christmas as early as September. The morning AM and FM radio stations start to play Christmas songs. Who does not like that? Even those who do not celebrate Christmas, you can tell that Christmas is in the air. It is because Christmas is everything. You may not receive bonuses, gifts, and thirteenth-month pay; however, you will realize how magical this season is. The songs that radio stations and televisions play are enough to change our moods. We become joyous every time we hear Christmas songs. The songs serve as a healing power that alters our perceptions of life. When we hear them, we see a light to pursue life.
In this case, we have to do this for ourselves. Before the end of this year, when travel restrictions are not stiff, we need to set our plans and enjoy ourselves going to the beach, cold springs, and other resorts. We have to do this to show that despite the odds in life, we still have the power to see the light in the darkness. As the Christmas celebration is fast approaching, get your bucket list and write this up to celebrate life. Well, if you have not seen any places yet, please try to visit Lapaken White Beach Resort. The location of the tourist spot is at Sitio Tulugon, Barangay Lapaken, Datu Blah Sinsuat, Maguindanao, BARMM, Mindanao, Philippines.
Now, what are you waiting for? Go now, hop in, and dive!
