Nothing beats work and play. That's what I always say when I'm shooting for VezTV Episodes with the whole Sky Cable Zamboanga Crew. It's because when I'm with them - it has always been unlimited fun! So last Friday (July 27, 2012) the whole crew along with Councilor Gerky traveled for four (4) hours to Lakewood Municipality, Zamboanga del Sur. We have been invited by the Alindahaw Lakeview Resort for a feature on our show so we graciously accepted the invitation!
So the drive going there was horrible for me and one of our segment producer - Heizel. She kept vomiting and I almost followed suit, good thing I didn't. Anyway, when we finally arrived - a splendid view welcomed us! It was a majestic place!
For starters, one of the major lakes in the Philippines is found in Zamboanga del Sur; the said lake is 722 hectares wide and is totally deep! Alindahaw Lakeview Resort gives its guests a much wonderful view of the lake with all the different amenities they have. The resort boasts of four pools namely the Bean-shaped Pool, Disco Pool which is a sort of Infinity Pool with a stage where bands can perform plus a bar half-submerged in the pool, the kiddie pool and a regular shaped one.
To rest our weary bodies after the travel, Miss Ruby (the manager) prepared three large rooms for us. One for the girls and two for the boys since they outnumber us. HAHA. We slept at the Bamboo House. Our room was overlooking the whole resort and the lake! What a nice and relaxing view that was! The resort has the Lumbia House as well and other rooms for everyone!
The food was also very sumptuous! I especially loved their specialty called the "Spicy Pork Ribs" which is sort of an adobo recipe with oyster sauce - Kuya Lando along with the chefs had a segment about it so you better watch how it's done cause it's soooooo delish! I almost thought I'll gain weight after the three days escape because the staff fed us with sooo much delicious food. And it was all for F-R-E-E :)

During our stay, we simply took advantage of all the amenities such as the Lake Tour using the speed boat and the large motor boat. But what really appealed to me was the JetSkii! I was so excited! It was easy though you only have to learn a few basics and your set to go! It was an exhilirating experience and I would love to try it again. Another one was the Kayaking. I was so afraid that I'd fall off - thanks to the boyfie who paddled for me. HAHA! I hope he didn't get deaf with my shouting and shrieking! HAHAHA :D
After all the activities in the lake, we also headed to Sing-A-Lake's Music Lounge where you can belt out your favorite songs with the view of the lake. The place was cozy and really stylish and super affordable! No worries on disturbing the other guests.
Overall, I was so thrilled,happy and energized to start the week! I really loved my stay at the resort. Not to mention that the whole staff were really approachable, friendly and all smiles. Excellent customer service :) My thanks go out to Miss Ruby and the whole staff of Alindahaw Lakeview Resort. We'll surely visit again by September when the resort opens their Quadruple Zip Line - the first of its kind in the Phils! :> Already excited!
