Revisiting Le Rinell Resort at Brgy. Balangkas, Valenzuela City

Though summer is almost over, it is never too late for a dip in the pool. One Valenzuela was able to visit Le Rinell back in 2015 but was not lucky enough to check out the resort. This time around, she got the opportunity to go and have a look inside.
Le Rinell Resort of Balangkas, Valenzuela City
Le Rinell is named after the children of the Ocampo-Gonzales family (which hail from Malolos, Bulacan and from Bataan, respectively). It is a long standing resort for it has been open since 1994. Like most Filipino families, their family likes to swim. Thus, they would usually go out-of-town for reunions and gatherings. Their family then built a swimming pool for their own use. Eventually, they shared the fun they find in swimming by opening the place to the public. 

Here are some photos which One Valenzuela was able to take on her visit:
Motorcycles line the entrance of Le Rinell Resort.

The public pool of Le Rinell has two slides which are about 8 to 9 feet high. The resort has a total of two public pools: 1 main pool and 1 kiddie pool.
Here's the newly built private pool of Le Rinell Resort. Its pool is about 4 to 5 feet deep. The place can hold around 30 persons. It has its own shower, 2 comfort rooms, a kitchen, and a videoke (Php8,000.00). You can also rent the adjacent room which has 3 double deck beds (Php2,000.00).
Cottages at Le Rinell Resort (Php300-400).

Shoe Hunting at the World Balance Outlet Store in Valenzuela City

Summer is coming to an end and the traditional black shoe and rubber shoe hunt for schooling is now officially on. One of the places that One Valenzuela visited to shoe hunt is the World Balance Outlet Store in Dalandanan. It is not along McArthur Highway but you can easily spot it by its big and towering signage once you set foot in the said barangay.
You won't miss this signage when you are already traversing McArthur Highway in Barangay Dalandanan. Just look up!

Other than footwear, this outlet store also sells several apparel.
Less 10% on all regular items.
Little One Valenzuela got a pair of EasySoft shoes from World Balance. She says it's comfortable to wear.
This World Balance store is conveniently open daily, even on Sundays. Learning that its products are 10% less than the mall price is also a big plus. You might even score a pair of sandals or two which are on sale when you visit the store.
