Perstaym mo ba sa Island Cove?

Hi friends, miss me? Matagal-tagal din akong di nakapag-update ng blog na to because, di ako nakakapag-travel! Hahaha! But I'd like to share with you my return sa first out-of-town place when I entered the blogosphere. Yes, I've returned to Island Cove after 5 years when Yehey introduced it to us. And since long weekend naman, I grabbed the opportunity to come back to this memorable place, thanks to Nana.
Ganito kasi, nung una is meron kaming mga challenges habang nililibot namin ang buong Island Cove so parang kahit papaano, wala kaming idea kung ano yung mga nagaganap at meron sa facility but we had a lot of fun. Ansarap isipin na Jen, Jeff and I are reminiscing our experiences sa Island Cove. But this time, inaalala namin kung ganoon ba talaga ang itsura ng Island Cove 5 years ago. Marami nang nabago. But some good places are still looking good tulad ng Fishing Village, Hotels, Oceania Pool and Zoo. May warm welcome pa si Managing Director Gilbert Remulla sa amin when we arrived! And that's just less than an hour road trip from Makati!
Facilities
Kahit may mga ilang tweaks and add-ons, mage-enjoy pa rin talaga sa Island Cove. Isa sa fave ko yung sa Animal Island. 1/3 ng 36-hectare facility e educational tour with the animals. From butterflies, to birds, to reptiles meron. Wag na wag lang talaga papahawak sakin yung ahas at mini-Crocodile. But masarap pakainin ang tigers named Gerald and Jasmine, both born in captivity and were fed 8 kilos of chicken head a day.

Then pwede mo ring pakainin yung mga ostrich, more than 10 large crocodiles and monkeys sa dulo ng Animal Island. May libre pang touch ng albino python at pwede ka ring mag ala-Robin Hood hawak ang isang lawin.

Then inikot namin yung ibang facilities. Bago sa Oceania Park e may malaki na silang inflatable slide. Meron din sa isang banda yung water playground ng mga bata kaya walang pwede malunod dun. Safe pa kasi rubber yung flooring.
Di nalalayo e yung Interactive Area na pwede kang mag XBOX. Nagtry ako ng isang dance. LOL Buti walang video.

After a few rounds with the accommodations, gym and spa area (wished that I was included in the list na nagpamasahe that day), we had a very large feast with Gilbert Remulla himself. Tinapatan ko agad ang seafood (#AlamNa). At napasubo ako when their resident band na nagiiikot sa mga guests to sing-along with them. Ehem! It was also a moment for us to interview Gilbert Remulla and learned more things about Island Cove. Nakakatuwa pang nabibiro din namin sya that time, but he more earned our respect in managing the whole area.

Then Tita Millet, Jen, Jed and I had our own relaxation in the Bayside KTV na ang laki laki ng room!  Nung nakaramdam na ko ng paos, pumunta naman kami sa may Interactive area. Another rare time na nakapaglaro ako ng billiards. Did 2 games pero hindi natapos yung second kasi malapit na mag-dinner sa Sangley Point. Ok lang kasi dinner naman yun. Sino ang papalag diba?

Snack / Dinner is finally underway. The best of Sangley Point is their Pork Ribs na pwede mong lagyan ng iba ibang sauce, especially Jerky Sauce. Then there's pizza, pasta and burgers for everyone to share. Busolve lahat!

Soy Chicken with Coleslaw
Burger and Caesar Salad
Kahit nakakapagod, e sulit na sulit ang experience sa buong Island Cove. To learn, relax, enjoy and have fun, highly recommended ang Island Cove para sakin. Can't wait to go back again and have an overnight stay!
