Summer it is! It’s hot and that feeling that you want to be refresh, somewhere near and affordable and peaceful. Will i have something in my mind. Why not try this super cool resort in Dapitan City, Zamboangga Del Norte. We visit the place last year and when i saw it, WOW! worth the long period of travel. It is Dakak Park and Resort.
I went there with my classmates and my friends, Luisa and Mildred. We depart in CDO by 3am and went to Mukas Port Lanao del Norte via bus. We arrived at Mukas by 6am and went to Ozamis city via Barge.
after 30mins. or more we arrived at Ozamis City and had our breakfast. Then we travel again via bus going to Dapitan. Before arriving at the location we had a stop over for our lunch, and i totally forgot the name of the place but it is a floating restaurant and it’s buffet. ^_____^
After eating a lot of foods and gaining a lot of energy, we proceed at our travel. And after a long hours of sitting down down at the bus. We arrived at one of the most beautiful paradise in Mindanao.
ACTION 101: First Amateur
I really love experimenting clothes and watch out
For a new fashion style.
So I just think, why not show to the world
My own piece of experimenting.
My first amateur pictorial, I’m addicted to camera
Taking photos and everything.
But modeling a clothes of mine is kinda
Awkward for the first time..:DD
I bought the dress in Singapore
Particularly in Bugis Junction.
I love to shop at Bugis Junction because
You can find anything there
Especially fashionable clothes.
No one is perfect, I think my pair of sandals
Is wrong of choice ..
But the dress is great.
Summer is up, and the heat is hot. When you say summer one thing that comes up in my mind and that is heat, and the only thing to recover from heat is water. Will I have a very fantastic and fun and adventurous summer last year. “tan-tan-ta-dan——“ WHITE RIVER RAFTING in our local, Cagayan de Oro City.

Short information of the White River Rafting from www.cdokay.com

The Cagayan de Oro River stretches 22 kilometers long and boasts of more than 25 rapids ranging from levels I to IV, making it perfect for beginners up to experts looking for adrenalin thrills.
While the sport has been practiced since the 1990s, the city rose into popularity as a famous whitewater rafting destination in the early 2000s.

How to Prepare For Your Adventure
Regardless of your outfitter or course of choice, it’s important to be prepared. A whole course can last anywhere around 3 to 6 hours, so don’t forget to pack extra food and put on loads of sun block.
Proper rafting attire is also necessary. Wear shorts and a t-shirt; but you can also opt to wear long sleeved rash guards or shirts to prevent uneven tanning. Some women wear spandex leggings underneath their shorts to protect their legs from darkening as well. Your clothing of choice should be comfortable enough and should not constrict your movement. You may also want to choose clothes that dry easily.
For footwear, guides usually recommend aqua shoes, but you can opt for open sandals as well. Some people wear slippers, but you might end up losing it during strong currents, so wear those with straps instead.
So, if you’re all set and raring to go, check out these Cagayan de Oro Whitewater rafting outfitters and pick your guide today!
