If you have been a tourist in the Philippines for a couple of times already and you believe that there is no longer a reason to be back in this tropical country, well, you must reconsider this country again. Or if you think that you have limited time to spend here in the Philippines and think that getting to popular tourist destinations like Cebu, Palawan, Boracay and Bohol will entail too much of time and money, then you can simply consider going to Sinagtala Farm and Resort.
I and my colleague were just there a week ago. Sinagtala is located in Orani, Bataan. It is only two hours easy driving north of Manila. Why am I recommending Sinagtala as a place to go? It is because I simply had an awesome experience in this resort.
The food was unexpectedly delicious! Don’t miss the native Pinakbet and the surprisingly delicious Taro Ice Cream for dessert.
The huge infinity swimming pool is cool! I usually don’t dip in a public pool, but upon seeing how clean and inviting the pool was, I never had second though of splashing in it.
The green natural sights are just spectacular! Fresh air, cool breeze, spectacular flora were something to behold.
The adventure rides were all so fun! I love the zipline!!!
That’s me at the right and Jorge Buenaflor at the left side…
At only 750 pesos (US$15) you can try all their adventure rides and facilities – zipline, sky bike, hanging bridge and giant sky swing. I am living in the Philippines, I have been to Sinagtala yet I consider coming back in this beautiful place. I had so much fun in this place I was enthused to create a simple music video of me and colleagues enjoyment in Sinagtala.
The Pride Month is over yet rainbow flags will never be folded and kept inside treasure trunks of the LGBT community. The waving of these colorful flags will continue to signify the unremitting fight for rights and equality.
This is of course except for the Chechen Republic which is the worst place to live for the members of the LGBT community. In that part of the globe, rainbow flags are kept in the innermost trunks and queer thoughts will forever be suppressed in the deepest annals of their soul.
Last weekend, I happen to bumped into an old YouTube video. After watching this fun and funny video, I wonder what the leader of Chechen Republic would feel after viewing it. Will he be beaming with smile and even laugh while watching such an innocent and harmless kids who happen to be gay? Or will he get so furious he will order his military troupes to fly nuclear missiles to the Philippines so as to eradicate these naïve and blameless kiddos? And if these kids were living in Chechnya, would he order that these happy minors be abducted and held captive in a gay concentration camps?
Aside from wondering what the Chechen Republic leader would feel, I am curious how the “free” kids of Chechnya enjoy being kids. Are they as unregimented and as diverse like the kids here in my country? Are they able to strut spontaneous moves the way kids here strut their stuff?
With all these incomprehensible questions, all I could think of is being glad that these kids are happy living in a free country like the Philippines! These cute kids may not be rich and powerful but they sashay away with happiness…
