Adventure Park @ Alindahaw Lakeview Resort

If you love taking pictures and you are checked in at Alindahaw Lakeview Resort, then you cannot stop clicking.  Our small group team went on  an overnight accommodation at the resort.  Many thought that it was not an ideal destination, thus, only few went with the group.

After traveling almost 5 hours in two types of weather – sunny and rainy, we reached the resort tired but excited.  The view and the surroundings were indeed a therapy.  It was what we needed for a weekend get-away destination.

After settling in for an hour, I decided to go down and walk around with my camera.   While others enjoyed the water swimming & kayaking, I spent time taking photos and relaxing in bed.  I have lots of photos taken but I wanna share some for you to enjoy. Somehow you will feel that you were with me there enjoying the view.

We were accommodated at the dormitory. A cozy building built at their Adventure Park area.  They have many amenities for an adventure activity, but sad to note that they are not functioning as of now as they need still need a preventive job to ensure that they are safe to be used by their customers.  So for now, for your eyes only pa ang dating.

I think the area is also ideal for an I-SHINE Bootcamp training site.

If you go down on the zip line, you’ll end up at this area.

That Autumn Feel

DSC_0256_RESIZED

I saw several of these plants and their colors reminded me of a maple tree. Maple trees gave me Autumn feel. Si Gong Yoo dayon ang naa sa akong huna huna. lols

This is not a maple leaf but the mix of colors reminded me of what Eun Tak said:

“If you catch a falling maple leaf, you’ll fell in love
with the person you are walking with.”

This is not a maple leaf.
And I was not walking with someone
So, there no such thing as I will fell in love
during that moment.

 

 

IN PHOTOS : Lakewood Lake as Seen @ Alindahaw Resort

This weekend was spent reconnecting with nature.  The Kanchenjunga Group went out on a weekend trip to Zamboanga del Sur.

A convoy of 4 vehicles happily left Iligan City, excited to spend the Sabbath morning at Pagadian Center then later to proceed to Lakewood, Zamboanga del Sur.

This is not my first time but still the picturesque view amazes me.

The last time I came here was in 2014 during the AMCI Strategic Planning.  The place where we stayed was not yet up during that time.  This time, tourists can have the choice of being accommodated in a dormitory type accommodation.

DSC_0206_RESIZED

They have 3 houses for the dormitory type accommodation and it can accommodate up to 24 persons.  Though one has to walk up a bit (200 meters up) from the main area, but still it was okey.

If the visitor will have a hard time to make that walk, they can bring their vehicle up to the Adventure area gate and disembark from there.  Then the walk up 30 steps to the door of the dorm.

Each dorm has its corresponding kitchen.  So the group can cook rice in an electric cooker and they can also conveniently grilled their meats.  The water supply was not a problem.

There are two rates in the dormitory accommodation.  Php 450 for a no free breakfast and no towel accommodation and Php 650 per head an accommodation with free breakfast and a towel.

It was raining hard while traveling from Pagadian to the resort.  Fortunately, it stopped when we arrived in the site.  But after a couple of hours, it rained again!

The view of the lake is so breathtaking.  Viewing it from different viewing angles inside the resort, the balcony view was not inferior.

In spite of the rainy afternoon, we caught a glimpse of the sunset mode. It was not a dramatic mixture of color, but it was enough to sigh a thankful praise to the Lord for giving us the opportunity to reconnect with nature, a pause of our hectic city life.

Sunset means a day has ended and another day is nigh.

At the end of this day, I have so much to thank the Lord:

The protection and care during our travel,
The time spent at Pagadian Central Church,
The yummy FREE lunch,
The beautiful Lakewood place.

I was back at House of Fries! That was my third time. First was during their opening, second with my kids, and this time, it is with the #EatIligan group.

Fries! The name says it all but mind you, they do not only serve fries of different flavors.  They too have money-value meals that can be enjoyed by anyone in any occasion.

This time, the owner, Sir Gelo, shared with us their new offers that is worth recommending to family and friends like, their sizzling fries, cheese Bowl, triple trouble Burger, and sizzling chicken.

My pictures cannot give justice to the yummy look of these foods.  Sorry. I was late and hapo with the heat of the day. But thanks to their coolers, it relaxed me a bit. So, you should go and check out their foods.

House of Fries is almost one year old.  You may check out their Facebook Fan Page for their anniversary pakulo mechanics. Who knows you will win the lucky person who will win the prize!

This food house is located at: De Leon Corner Ramiro St., Iligan City.
