    Malapascua sir, it is an island located at the northern part of Cebu Province. It has white sands like boracay and lots of affordable resorts to choose from. You can also taste our world famous lechon he he.

    i've been to Coron, Palawan this New Year nice place, magastos lang because you need to pay Boat Rides in every island destination you want to go.

    Balicasag Island Resort in Bohol is also great. around 20-30mins away from Panglao Island.

    Bee Farm in Bohol there are also a few other like Alonah Q (can't remember the spelling) for me Bohol is better than Boracay - less people, less commercialization.
    One other thing nice with Bohol is you have the beach and you have nice sights to go to inland too like the loboc river and choco hills

    Oh yeah there is also nice resorts and hotels in Pagudpud and Vigan. I just loved our summer road trip up north. Worth doing it again

    iba yung malapascua sa bantayan island. meron din daan (bisaya for old) bantayan. ibang lugar nanaman to. malapascua is very popular sa mga divers.

    yung sa bohol, ALONA Beach ang tawag doon. it's a strip of beaches na may maraming resorts. u can choose from "backpacker type" to class A resort.

    maganda rin daw sa pagudpud (ilocos). i havent been there but have seen pix of my friends' visit.

    depende talaga yan kung ano hilig mo. ano ba gusto mo mangyari sa vacation nyo? ano habol mo? by answering that question, we can narrow down choices for u.

    how crazy or lets say adventurous are you? Tama si sir bisoy - what do you feel like doing?

    Land trip going north is not a bad idea - a relaxed and see almost everything trip would last you a week. You can visit hundred islands, la union, ilocos sur, ilocos norte, aparri enter cagayan then go back a bit to the mountain province area via Baguio OR pass the other side of luzon.

    Hayyyyy I wish I was younger and single right now because I would love to do that trip.

    You can also go down south - cam sur. You can go swimming with the whale sharks.

    If you come to think of it - the Philippines is such a lovely place to visit. Just ignore the politics, politicians and other pampagulo people :). Ordinary people and places are still great!

    You can hire a pumpboat and view the hillside villas in Sipalay. Fish is also cheap in the public market. Manumbok, Tangigue, and large squid are in abundance. There is also a Hillside Casita at Punta Bulata that has a kitchen where you can cook. Punta Bulata's spa offers one of the best massages, according to my brother from the US. He had to wait for three hours just to get a spot.

    The contact persons for Punta Bulata are Bomber Zayco and Miren Lopez-Zayco. Gerry Ledesma is the one in charge of Danjugan Island.

    We have a small mountain resort at our mining site in Zambales. Its known as KIDZ POOL and is located at Coto Mines, Masinloc, Zambales. The main attraction of the resort is it natural free flowing fresh water pools (2 pools actually). We have the basic facilities there like airconditioned cottages and restuarant. The resort situated at the mining community with a population of a about 2,000. So there are stores, a market, and other facilities you'll find in a small barangay.

    So, if you're a nature lover, willing to rough it up a bit (simple accomodations) and travel (27km of mining road) to our mine site, you're welcome to stay there. From Quezon City via NLEX then SCTEX to SMBA (Subic) to our site would take you about 4.5 to 5 hours.

    Here are some pics (sorry it was taken with my cellphone camera):embarassed:

    No sir. Born and raised in Metro Manila. But now, I'm based here in Zambales. Our company was just able to aquire the 25 years operating agreement of Coto Mines after Benguet Corp. agreement expired.

    You are from Masinloc sir jerry? Zambalenio?
