Bacolod's Mambukal Beach Resort

It's officially our Day 1 in Bacolod. So breakfast was ready when we woke up. It really felt like we were staying in a hotel. Oh I almost forgot to mention, we got our own toilet and bath inside the guest room (or should I say, house? haha). So we took a shower then had breakfast, which was much like of a feast.

We're off to Mambukal Beach Resort! But before heading there, we dropped by a wet and dry market to buy chips, softdrinks, fruits, and meat to grill at the resort. Anyway, it was around an hour or less of travel from the house to the resort. We paid Php50 each at the entrance. We rented a cottage for Php300. Actually, the cottages were fully booked. We just got a cottage originally reserved by a different group because we arrived earlier than they did haha!

Team Shades!:))

 late lunch and too much nibbling of childhood chips that we missed haha

 super sweet mangoes!!!

We trekked going to the falls. There were seven waterfalls going up. But it rained so bad when we were at the second falls so we didn't bother to go further. It could've been more fun if we were able to see the seventh waterfalls. Some of us never actually planned of swimming at the falls but because of the rain, we got soaked! We had no other choice but to enjoy it! There were some kids there who acted as tour guides, and even if we didn't actually call them, they wouldn't leave us. So we just gave them fifty bucks for taking our photos.




 what a nice view of the first waterfalls


Swimming is not allowed on the first waterfalls

 While we were here, it rained so hard.

 the kids gave us this! so cute! haha

 Then we want back to the first waterfalls and broke the rules hahaha!

should i have know that it will rain, i should've worn swimsuit!:))

Only 2 of us were supposed to swim; thus, the swimsuits.:))

 satisfied kids trekking back to the base haha

We headed back to the cottage and changed our clothes. We didn't have time to swim at the pool and explore the butterfly garden anymore because we had to catch the Electric Masskara parade at the Tourism Strip (Lacson St.). On our way home, we took a quick stop at the new city hall for some photo ops! haha:))


jump shot!:)

Check my next post for the Masskara Festival at night!:)
