Back to work today. . . was on vacation from sat up to yesterday! Our Dakak trip was finally over! It was an adventure for Joel and I . . . first time visit to the South! Dakak Park and Beach Resort is really worth visiting!
Joel & I managed to checkin early, 2hours before the flight. Using my connections (yahooo! courtesy of Mylene of Ebiz & Ms. Joson, Duty Manager - Domestic), we were able to sneak in the exclusive Mabuhay Lounge at NAIA Centennial2 terminal (lounge exclusive for Elite and Premier Mabuhay Miles members. . . and a no-no to Non-Revenue pax . . . --- hehe kami un!). First time for Joel to experience this distictive frequent flyer privilege Ü We had our breakfast here. . . appetizing arroz caldo, almost everything in the pika-pika table, several pastries & juices etc! And not to forget the taked-out canned Pepsi & 7Up!
We boarded PR167 exactly on time around 9:45AM and the flight departed also on-time around 10:15AM. Almost an hour later, cabin crew announced "We are on our final approach to Dipolog. . ." yahooo! Dakak..here we come! Ü
We were welcomed with Lei in Dipolog Airport (kailangan ba tlaga ng Lei?!). 45-minute travel by Van from Dipolog Airport to Dakak Park and Beach Resort. Upon check-in, welcome drinks were provided by friendly Dakak staffs.
We had our lunch just right after signing up at the reception counter. Port Orient is just perfect! -- an open-air native restaurant facing the sea, serving the Orient's sumptuous specialties as well as continental dishes.
Lechon Kawali and Lengua Estofado - SARAP!
After a scrumptious lunch, we had our way to our standard bungalow room! I was expecting a standard . . . small fan room. . but to my surprise Room2B turned out to be a deluxe type --
equipped with individually controlled air conditioner, colour television, intercom phone, mini bar, shower/bath with hot and cold running water, dressing area and main bedroom yahooo!
Weather was fine for the first 2 days. Beach was calm . . . as if inviting us for a dip! I settled for the pool located a few meters from the beach front. Ganda! Had the chance to practice my floating skills hehehe. Jacuzzi beside the pool is just perfect for me!
