TEAM YOHA

TEAM YOHA

Before I start magkwento sa beach experience ko, please keep on praying dahil parang nadadalas ang earthquake sa iba't-ibang part ng bansa.

So ito na nga! Our original plan was to go Batangas for our outing but since lumindol sudden shift of plans at super nakakaloka kasi unexpected ang outing namen. 1 week before the outing, all is settled, excited ang lahat but then out of the blue lumindol in the exact same place where we are about to go(Masasa Beach, Tingloy Batangas) kaya natakot ang lahat so nasad kami kasi mukhang walang matutuloy na beach. Based on the news, some tourists were trapped at Masasa beach, boats are scared to sail because there's a tsunami tendencies kaya, to cut the story short pool party nalang daw. Most of my workmates are disappointed at syempre ako din, beach na naging pool pa. Then our boss heard about it kaya inutos niya sken na magsearch ng other place/venue. Syempre as an HR/Virtual Assistant dapat resourceful, so next to Batngas, Quezon Province is the nearest best place. Since 2 days preparation lang ito, wala ng nakialam sken sa planning, kailangan matuloy to or else sad summer.

I found a girl residing at Padre Burgos, Quezon. Mabuti nalang wala na siyang hininging down payment kasi 2days lang naman nandun na kme at eto pa, I never call her sa transactions nmen, chat lang kami and pagdating nmen sa place super accommodating niya. Thanks to you ate.

How to get there:
If you're from Manila - Cubao/ Buendia/ Alabang station, ride a bus (DLTB, Jac Liner, Lucena Lines) going to Lucena Grand Terminal (fare will range from 180 php-200 php). From Lucena Grand Terminal, look for terminal of bus going to Unisan or van going to Unisan/ Agdangan.
NOTE: If you choose to ride on a bus, travel time will be 1.5 hours while 45 minutes on a van. Fare for bus is 35 php while 60 php for van. Just tell the driver to drop you off at QCRB Padre Burgos (bank) and there you can see lots of locals offering boat ride and island tour. You have to decide if you will walk until you reach the port (10-minutewalk) or if you will ride on a tricycle. NOTE: 10 php per person

Most Asked Questions:
Per pax/head ba ang bayad ng rent sa boat?
"Of course not. That is too expensive if per person. Deals are per boat, so rent for a boat divided by 8 pax or 10."

Round tour?
"Goodthing, YES."

Kapag ba may dalang sariling tent, magbabayad pa rin ng space for tent?
"Yes. 200php per tent in all island for tent space."

Saan pinakamagandang mag-stay for overnight?
"Dampalitan if you want a bonfire at saka mura lang ang entrance for overnight. (100 php) though 50php per gallon ang banlaw sa kanila. Borawan naman if you want unli-banlaw/water supply. Sa Kwebang lampas naman if you want a crystal clear water."

Magbabayad pa rin ba ng entrance kahit saglit ka lang sa island?
"Oo bes. Once na bumaba ka sa island, sisingilin ka na nila. But you can negotiate with the boat driver for the best option. (Sobrang accommodating ng mga tao)"

May package po ba sila?
"Yes po depende sa usap pang maramihan ba o kaunti lang. Just talk to them"

Kung may sasakyan, may safe ba ang parking lot?
"Yes po, Proven and tested."
Parking Fees:
Day tour: 50 php
Overnight: 100 php

May oras po ba byahe ng bangka?
"Wala naman daw. Kayo ang bahala sa oras because you rented it. Magtext na lang kayo sa nakausap nyo with regards to the time if magpapasundo na kayo."

Ilang hours byahe from Manila?
"4-5 hours po."

May mabibilhan bang pagkain sa island?
"Meron. pero mahal. I suggest na mamili na kayo ng food ninyo or pagkababa niyo sa Qcrb. Bayan ng Padre Burgos. Malapit lang palengke. You can also ask if pwede kayo samahan ng mga locals."
