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.


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.

One Fine Sabbath Morning

PhotobucketIt was one fine Sabbath morning and I find myself with the Gen Ed family in one of the homes in Dumingag. This was my first trip to Dumingag and particularly in the campus of Western Mindanao Academy. Our school was invited to present a program that Sabbath morning. It was also part of the promotion of the school.

We traveled going there Friday after lunch and we arrived late in the afternoon. It was quite sometime of a travel. Luckily I was seated in the front seat with Ma’am Lai or else I will not feel so comfy if I was seated at the back. The one who drived us going there was Kuya Nonoy. Sigh. Missing Kuya now. Wherever you are now Kuya, we always miss you.

It’s early morning over at my end and I just finished going through some old photos and am reminded of the day when these pics was taken. It was one fine day. The sun shone so brightly that morning. It was so humid. Good thing it rained in the afternoon and made our trip back a bit pleasant.
