A Cold day in Malamig Park Resort

Summer stories I could share,simple but fun summer outing bonding of friends.

We went to a clean and beautiful resort located in Barangay Malamig Bustos Bulacan . The Malamig Park resort!

There are nine classes pool here : there are the Alon-Alon Wave pool, Octopool, Dolphin Pool,Adult Pool, Adult Pool Slide1, Slide Pool 2 Adult, Big Private Pool, Private Pool Small, MushroomPool!

The entrance fee is cheap also with the cottages that you can rent depending on size and number of the guests.

We took “Day swimming rates” so we never had a chance to know their accommodation room rates. But here the rates of entrance fee and Cottages:

For Php 3,000 pesos less, we enjoyed a day in Puting Buhangin (3)

Bicolanang Lakwastera haggled for Kuya Tricycle driver to bring us to the nearest resort they know. They recommend Don Enrico’s Bar and Resort. This so called nearest resort took us about 20 minutes travel and Php 150.00 pesos fare. Discounted.

We knock at the gate and thought that the resort is closed. There is a construction truck inside and looks like they are renovating the resort. Good thing that the owner opened the gate and allowed us to enter. We are the only guest at that time, and the swimming pool is all by ourselves. It is like that we have rented the entire resort.

The owner is so accommodating and we only paid 140.00 for the two of us as entrance fee. The swimming pool is so tempting and we swam like children. We took pictures of the nice view. Fronting the swimming pool is a mountain that gives the resort a cool green and refreshing ambiance.

After taking some photos, Kuya pointed to us a nipa cottage wherein we can take shower and change clothes. It is an enclos…

My Moment of Silence at Wawa Dam

I need silence for a while. I need something that can refresh my spirit and soul. I want to be separated from a noisy and polluted world.

Then I go… found myself sharing laughers and jokes with my friends at Wawa Dam.

Wawa Dam is Located in Montalban Gorge (Rodriguez Rizal) where the story of legendary Bernardo Carpio was supposed to happen, Wawa Dam is a pretty nice place to just pass the time. Built in 1909, it used to be Manila’s primary water source until it was replaced by the La Mesa/Ipo/Angat watershed system.

About 45 minutes drive from Marikina, in that sunny afternoon; we are already at the entrance of Wawa Dam. After paying P20 pesos as entrance fee, for five of us or car entrance, (not clear to me) and P50 pesos parking fee, but actually there is no standard parking rate here, you can only ask someone or one of the locals to look for your vehicle. We are fortunate to find one Nipa hut owned by one of the locals, where we parked our car for a cheaper fee.
