Paradise Ranch, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga

By Tin Gallemaso - 12:56:00 PM

After the Hotair Balloon Festival link: here and Nayong Pilipino link: here. We headed to Paradise Ranch to eat our lunch and to spend the entire afternoon. 

Unang-una, naiinis ako pag naririnig ko 'yung mga salitang Paradise Ranch kasi naaalala ko si Changmin ng DBSK. Naiinis kasi ako sa kamukha nun eh. Joke. Hindi ko naman na naisip 'yun nung nandun ako, tuwing ganito lang na nababanggit. hahahaha. Kk, baliw. 

Sabi ng website nila,

Paradise Ranch
 is an environmental project design to educate children and the general public on protecting the environment and saving wildlife. it is located on the hills of Clark Air Base, with fog and temperature comparable to Tagaytay and Baguio, a million dollar view of the entire Clark Zone, surrounding cities and towns, overlooking the Sacobia River, Mt. Pinatubo, Mt. Arayat and other mountains and majestic sceneries for everybody to enjoy without and membership!

Tagaytay at Baguio. Kaya naman pala may "Little Baguio" na area. Best months to go there would be November to February siguro 'cause April?

This was our free lunch. Controlled buffet. Mej bitin pero oks na rin.
Here are the attractions/things to see in Paradise Ranch.
Remember Channel 2's Honesto? This was their filming site.

Aeta's dancing in the tune of Waka-Waka. 
Fish Feeding Area
You are to ride that balsa.
Emote emote sa Little Baguio.
They also have a butterfly garden near this place.
Exploring the rest of the area.
Lika na, Edward Edward ulit.

This was the coolest place (literally) during that day! Sana nag set-up sila ng duyan dito.
As we explored more, we found this walkway and at the end of this was the pool.
Huhuhuhu. Sarap pls!
Near the pool was the Toon Town and these kids were also there playing.

After changing our shirts and freshening up, we went back to the bus.
Goodbye, Paradise Ranch.

It was fun while it lasted.

I enjoy going to places like this.
Tahimik and you'll feel one with nature. They also have cottages in there should you opt to have an overnight trip.

The only downer was the weather. It was really hot so it was a challenge to walk around the whole place. Para lang kasing nasa desert dahil sa lahar na nasa paligid. Marami pa nga kaming hindi napuntahan.

Ayan, as we rode the bus, tulog ako agad. Hindi ko na nga naramdaman na nakaalis na kami ng Paradise Ranch at nasa Duty Free na kami.

And there entered my most shonga moment ever,

As I woke up, I checked my phone and saw 14 miscalls from my mother.

"O asan na kayo? Anong oras kayo uuwi?"

Tumingin ako sa labas at may nakita akong Duty Free nga...
"Andito pa. Sa Duty Free. Subic."

"Subic? Bakit nasa Subic ka na naman?" Andun lang din kasi ako a week before. Duty free was our stop-over after going to Anawangin Cove in Zambales link: here.

"Andito nga kami sa Subic eh. May Duty Free sa labas."
"Layo pa nyan sa Pampanga. Nakaabot ka na naman dyan!"
"Ewan ko. Basta nasa Subic kami, bababa lang ako bibili sa loob"

And that's the end of our "Subic" Trip.
Someday ka sa'min, Mt. Pinatubo.

All in all, I must say that the voucher from Metrodeal was worth it. Thank you, MetroAsian Tours for making this trip as convenient as possible. This would have been very difficult have we decided to do a D.I.Y tour. Kulang kami sa tulog because we all headed to our meeting place in Glorietta immediately after finishing all our works/things to do. Alam mo 'yun, gising na ng maaga ng April 11 tas Pampanga na agad sa madaling araw ng April 12 but because it was a group tour, kebs lang matulog sa bus nang walang inaalala.

P.S. Sabi ko in one of my posts before, "as much as possible, somewhere North or farther South naman." Today's the 27th day of April 2014 and meron na lang akong isa pang pupuntahan before this month ends. Thank You po! 'Cause after 6 months, nakapunta ko ng ibang Northern and Southern Provinces. At sa 7th month (since October 2013 'to ah), ako na siguro ang pinakamasayang tao na may kaunting pera. Ajujuju. 

Thank You po!!! :D
