Because marriage and motherhood doesn't come with a manual.

Jay J’s, Valley Golf & Country Club

For most of my young life, I’ve spent Sundays with my dad playing golf in Intramuros and my brother and I eating club sandwiches as we watched him from a few meters away. My brother and I even tried learning how to smack that little ball and make it land as far as we could, and although I never learned to swing well, still that was a huge part of my childhood. 

During our wedding preparations, Tim and I checked out Valley Golf & Country Club and shortlisted it as one of our venue choices. To be honest, had Tim and I had hundred of thousands for a budget we would have chosen Valley Golf as our venue because of the pretty golf course view and also because my dad was attending my wedding. It would have made our wedding a little more extra personal and sentimental to me but it was a great thing that we didn’t get the place as it rained so hard during our wedding. LOL It would have been a total disaster. Haha! 

So I told Tim about those stories of my childhood and how I kind of miss hanging out by the golf course. Like I didn’t have to play or anything, I could just sip iced tea or mango shake like I used to and just enjoy the peacefulness of the place over some quiet conversation. So when Tim one day decided to take me to Valley Golf I shouldn’t have been surprised right? But still, I was because I never actually thought he was listening to all of my sappy crap. LOL

We had lunch there at Jay J’s Inasal and Restaurant in their North Clubhouse. It was really nothing fancy but it was a bright day but it was breezy that the open restaurant suddenly became the perfect place to be right at that hour. 

Tim and I didn’t order much as we wanted a break from all the food we had during our Vigan trip. LOL But we did order tons of rice that we immediately regretted because we weren’t able to finish them. Haha! That was a problem we don’t normally encounter. 

The food was really decent, not too memorable but good enough to enjoy and to say that it was money well spent.

However, since it was a country club and shizz, it was pretty pricey. For two dishes, four rice, a glass of iced tea and coffee we were billed around 800+php. 

But I guess with the view and the good food it was worth every penny. Tim and I actually had a nice and peaceful lunch for the first time in weeks, although I wished I could have brought with me a book as it seemed like the best place to read minus the comfortable cafe sitting of course. LOL
