We will stay here at Zaycoland Resort and Hotel in Kabankalan City. This will be our home for three days, thanks to Mr. Tootsie and Pie Zayco for hosting our stay and trip.
This Saturday, there will be pool party inside Zaycoland at night, entrance fee is PHP 50 and it’s a non stop pool party with live music DJs and some booze… I will be there too to join the party and fun, but I will just spend the time snorkeling around by the pool just to take away all the stress I got from Manila.

Okay…I’m ready…time to pack my things and fly now to Negros Occidental, Philippines.
