Subic Vacation Villas at Subic Homes

In the Philippines, it is common to be faced with either choices when getting away for holiday: do we want to hit the Mountains or Beaches? Do we want to head South or North?

When we go North-bound, Subic is our top-of-mind for many reasons. For instance, it is just within 2-3 hours car drive from Metro Manila, and already it can give you access to the wildlife, the jungle safari,  and since land-based and air-based animals can roam freely on the streets, the Department of Health has been implementing a ban on firecrackers in Subic (along with Clark). Thus, we can still get away from the noise of Dec 31 firecrackers when in Subic.

This place also boasts of its beautiful beaches, and yes, lots of imported goods from Duty Free shops abound and they haunt you of the times when the United States BASES were still in the Philippines.

Subic is like a second home to our family especially during the early 80s, because we have an aunt who married to an American and they used to live near Binictican Drive along with their 4 children. We would visit them at least twice a year, and I could still see myself playing in one of the playgrounds along Binictican Drive together with my cousins.

Today, American-style houses have remained to be familiar scene, although this time, they were converted to villas for rent as most of the Americans, along with our dear relatives, went back to the United States.

Vacation Villas at Subic Homes are among these houses, and I find the sight of these to be personally nostalgic. My family and I have been here twice, especially when we spend the holiday with our close relatives, when the mood strikes for home cooking, baking and roasting and if we prefer to stay indoors. After all, the unit has Wi-fi for those who can’t put down their phones even on holidays.

    The Side Tripper

    “Make sure you don’t take any side trips,” warns Schumler, from a phrase in the 1993 American film Swing Kids. If you are someone who does not have time to lose, then it is better for you to stick to your main agenda, because there is something about side tripping that submerges the soul in experiences that sometimes make you hope that time would stand still, as the experiences they bring can be more impactful than the main trip itself. It is that free flowing agenda, an unexpected sleepover or a detour that has unintentionally brought pleasant surprises. You can live without it, like you can eat a cake without its icing, but your journey may not be as meaningful. If travel is the ‘best medicine for the heart’,* then for me, side trips are secret ingredients to the most memorable travels and other events that can happen in between or off the main route of one’s itineraries. Welcome to Side Tripper, a collection of photographs and blogs about the many side trip adventures of our family and friends. *Source: The Global Commission on Aging and Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies, in partnership with the U.S. Travel Association (Los Angeles Times, December 17, 2013 by Chris Erskine)
