The summer heat is drying out every single drop of electrolyte filled gland in my skin, better way to cope up is to quench my epidermic tissue with either the salty waters of NATURE or the clear chlorinated waters of the INDUSTRIALIZED swimming pools. NO. I WANT BOTH!!!

The MONOPOD CRAZE is hitting the market thats why me and friends got each one. And whats the best way to use it? - OUTING!!!!

After almost a month of argue and stormy moods FINALLY! A new destination has been set by the STARS!

SINAGTALA! SINAG means RAY OF LIGHT and TALA is STAR. Enough translating, lets GO and find out this popular resort. A resort in an upland village adjacent to the Bataan National Park, raised 500 meters above sea level, this attraction has been rooted by a lot of visitors due to its cooler environment.

I waked up 5 in the morning to meet my friends at San Marcelino Zambales, we eyed at 6 in the morning and had breakfast on our way to Bataan, stopping over at every vend we see on the road to check out and try some delicacies of the province. We arrived at 10 am driving through some zigzags and slopes.

Our hearts pounded when the receptionist asked if we were reserved on that day (we didn't had reservation) we thought we would go home with nothing... no pictures no Facebook likes lol. Because there were few guests in the resort, we were welcomed and ushered to the pool side view.

OMG! WOW! those were the first words that we uttered when we had realized that we are standing high above the ground in front of a pool with an infinite view of the raw jungle of Bataan forests. This is heaven for those who are like us - nature adventure seekers - slightly laid-backers haha!



The place is very organic, serene and calming. Sinagtala is a 50 hectares farm and retreat park located in Brgy. Tala, Orani, Bataan, about 500 meters above sea level foothills of Mt. Natib and the Bataan Natural Park.

For day tour for visitors who want to go picnicking and swimming, rooms are available for 100 persons for overnight stay with free breakfast.

Rooms good for 2 to 6 persons are from P2,300 to P4,400 a day.

A whole house with a capacity of 10 persons can be rented for P7,000 – P10,000; main house for 17 persons at P17,000 and a whole house for 30 people at P30,000.

Day tour rate is P300 per person including swimming.

Children aged 5 years and below are free of charge.

 No, it was not planned at all! 

I got the chance to go to an early summer treat at WHITE ROCK Resort located at the coast of Subic seas. That day, as usual we thought that we were only the guests of the resort - later I'll tell you what we found out! Getting to White Rock Resort is easy, from the City of Olongapo it would only take 15minutes of your travel time, for it is only located near the National Road at Matain Subic Zambales. We arrived at the resort at around 9am (incomplete, because g'Chen was still at home doing her "self -oratory -beautification" haha). Me, Jacky, Krenz and Chiny PLUS PLUS OUR motherly saviour MOMMY-GOODLOOKING-TEEN-LIKE-AGELESS DONABEL also jumped into the gala-ship. Haha for sure she'd be happy reading this.

At the entrance, we were ushered to the lobby and there, we witnessed how the staff treat their guests with undeniable hospitality and politeness. Also I have to thank Madam LAARNE's generous sister for sponsoring the cottage that we will be staying in for the day.

From the lobby, we got a ride on a caddy to our cottage. The cottage we picked is facing the beach, that time the resort is doing some renovations and buildings. What we did first was to take some pictures of the beautiful scenery and had some snack, boiled egg, bananas and steamed corn, brought by MOMMY DONA and SEXY JACKY.

We didnt packed for lunch so we called Chowking Subic Town to deliver some. Then we bought desert from the hotel restaurant -SPECIAL HALO HALO- Yumm!!

After lunch, we roamed the whole resort and tried to take pictures of each and every amenity, from the WAVE POOLS, BOWLING AREA, KIDDIE POOLS, BIG BOWL, GIANT SLIDE, ZIPLINES and also peeked through the hotel rooms and activity areas.

The entrance fee which is about 650php includes a 30minute kayaking or canoeing. I enjoyed this part the most!!! Because while getting our kayaks, we recognized two lovely girls playing in the sands of the beach! ARLENE AND SUE of the famous tv show ANNALIZA, of course, we took pictures with them, even had fun with them in the WAVE POOL. ZANJOE is also in whiterock, we saw him riding the jetski and even stopped to pose for picture taking.

We really enjoyed the day at white rock! This resort is worth the start of our summer, fun, exciting and full of surprises!
