What is in Malagos Garden Resort?
Hah! I finally got myself back into writing again. It feels good!
It’s been a while since my last blog post. I’ve been MIA for almost a month. Crazy, lazy!
You might be wondering what happened to me. Well, I got sick. Yep, my body’s defences failed. My white blood cells were overwhelmed by the pathogens. Good thing I am recovering now by God’s grace. It was scary though.
Human as I am, I had a hard time juggling between my job, hobby and life itself with a weak body. Who doesn’t anyway?
Enough said, let’s proceed to my last post for the Davao bootcamp 2013 series: Malagos Garden Resort Tour.
I’m watching Eragon right now and I’m struck with envy with so much greenery in its sceneries. Aaaah, that calming effect nature has on you. This movie reminded me of a beautiful place in Davao that I vacationed in with a group of bloggers last year, Malagos Garden Resort.
At Malagos Garden Resort, there were plenty of trees, animals and freshly harvested fruits. It was a peaceful place with fresh air; calming to the tired soul of city dwellers like me.
It was my first time to be ushered by this kind of vehicle. This ride gave me a safari vibe! The resort had a vast land area and the reception area was quite far from the cottages. You’d lose your breath if you’d just walk with all your baggages.
This was on our second day at Malagos. We were having a break from our sessions when this shy horse passed by. We kinda have the same hair color. Hehehe!
This is where we had our socials night and closing ceremony.
This is a tall pole in the play area. Athletic people would enjoy climbing it.
There were several pieces scattered outdoors and even indoors. You would be captivated not just by nature but by also the masterpieces of local artists spread here.
This was on our last day at Malagos and this was one of the gateways to Koi Cafe where delicious breakfast was served daily. I had a big smile in this photo because I was excited to eat. Hehehe! Who wouldn’t be? Everything here was fresh and they cooked so well, too.
Behind me were zorbs, giant air-cushioned hollow plastic balls that can carry up to 3 people. The riders are then rolled on to the lake. We passed by this area when we were on our way to the bird show after eating breakfast at Koi Cafe.
When you’re in Davao, don’t miss the chance to watch Malagos Garden’s Bird Show. You will love it!
Right after the show, the audience were allowed to get in to the set and take pictures with the birds. I got so ecstatic that I did not just pose with them but I also kissed one bird here.
Up close into the set:
After the bird show, we resumed with our tour around Malagos Garden Resort since there was still so much time before our next activity for the bootcamp.
This is an entrance into a garden within a garden. Can you imagine now how big this resort is? We’ve walked everywhere already but I still feel that there were places we haven’t visited yet in our entire stay.
This would be a great place for a wedding proposal. So boys, add this to your options. Thank me later when you get your big yes. Hehehe!
Are you a city dweller experiencing fatigue brought about by pollution, busy schedule, technology and continuous consumption of processed foods? You might want to unwind for a while at Davao’s Malagos Garden Resort.
Would you try this place when you’re in Mindanao?
