A week and it’s my birthday already. Not so excited though since I didn’t know what to do. Was trying to do the outreach program but then I don’t have enough money to finance the program and I don’t want to ask solicitation from people because they will think of it differently. Might as well not push with it, perhaps later this year or next wouldn’t be too late to do it right? Next on my list of what-to-do aside from doing outreach program is of course my favorite — traveling. ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐ŸŽ’

I made some adjustments since my birthday falls on a Monday, why not the weekend before? Advance celebration eh? ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Myself agreed to it. The next question is where to celebrate? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Was thinking of a not-so-far-away from the Metro since y’know how accidents happen during birthdays though I don’t believe in those beliefs. Hihi but better safe than sorry. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Quite planned a bit. Searching over Mr. Googleย on where to spend the day and found the place. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜…

SINAGTALA FARM RESORT, Orani Bataan. That’s where I spent my advanced celebration. It’s supposed to be an overnight stay however rooms were fullybooked perhaps it’s because election’s just finished and some celebrated their victory there as I overheard individuals calling one person “vice-mayor”.

TIPS

1. It’s okay to do walk-in but call first the farm resort so you’d know if they’d accept when you do walk-in or should you have yourself reserve a slot before going there to not surprise you with the crowd.
2. Bring powerbanks since there’s no plugs or charging station in the resort unless you’re staying overnight or or if you don’t have one charge your gadgets batteries at home so you won’t freak out or sulk when one rans out of battery.
3. If you’re the type of person who’s not a fan of preparing the food, public market is 3-4kms away from the junction just take a tricycle fare is 25PhP. There’s jollibee and puregold nearby the market. Don’t worry there’s NO corkage fee. You can do light cooking as well – grilling I mean. The farm resort has a cafe as well as a restaurant to cater your appetite… don’t ask the price. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
4. It’s okay to wear bikinis and one-piece swimwear but be sensitive enough. The place is more likely for family reunions, expect people to watch and scrutinize you when flaunting your skimpy bikinis around. Bring rashguard if you don’t feel good with all their gazes.
5. The area has a poor network signal don’t expect your mobile internet to be fast.
6. Don’t miss the ICEBUCO store inside the resort especially the ube (purple yam) flavored ice cream.
7. The place is huge and still under construction, don’t expect too much.
8. For reservations, inquire a week or two since the staff(s) there takes TOO LONG to reply, you wouldn’t want to shorten your patience. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
9.There’s a football and volleyball field but full of animal’s wastes.
10. The resort has two (2) infinity pools, both at 4ft deep to cater most of it’s customers.
11. There’s a chapel inside, not sure of the mass schedules but you can ask upon inquiring.
12. Day tour is from 09:00 up to 18:00 ONLY.
13. The place is good for celebrations like birthdays, company outings, weddings and reunions: family, friends, colleagues.

Life’s too short to mope around. Go out and live. Enjoy the moment. Safe travels y’all! See you when I see you. โค๐Ÿ’‹
