Damires Hills (Tierra Verde)

Hey Hey Hey, as I’ve told you in my previous post Directions to Damires Hills. I’ll be posting the photos I shot in this resort.

So here we go… πŸ™‚

If you’re looking for a chance to get away from the city to collect your thoughts and go back with a much calmer version of yourself then I’d really recommend Damires Hills as a great solution for aΒ  great escape. Not to mention cheap rates for their rooms and open cottages.

Here are some of my shots for their daytime cottages.

As to Families, Lovers or Barkadas who just wants quality time with not much of those loud noise we hear in the city this is a great place for you. When we stayed here it was just them birds chirpin’ in the morning and crickets n’ frogs croaking in the evening ’twas just the perfect legit background music for reminiscing and warm convos..

We stayed at room Zinia in the new building, that roomΒ  will now and forever be my favorite room in Damires. Haha! Cozy room with a veranda at the back (same goes with all the rooms in the new building) Here are some of the rooms/balays..

Love the fact that they have Duyans in every open-cottage and in some areas (nostalgic)

This is where we ate dinner, overlooking the poolside.
(please click the photo if you want see the full resolution)

The next day I went over to where they grew their fruits.. They had Rambutan, Kapayas, Calamansi, Cabugao and Katumbal πŸ™‚

After Lunch, we tried the Ziplines and the Bunjee Trampoline. We also wanted to try the ATV but they were still rerouting the trail. (but will def’ try it next time!) πŸ™‚

Zipliners
With the Manong Tata and Albert in charge of Ziplines. πŸ™‚

Here’s Ron enjoying his weight and one fail photo of me trying to do a back flip in the trampoline. (yes, I am chubby but I am happy I did 3-5 flips or 2.. out of let’s just say several attempts. (I will be back, you tramp!) <– see what I did there? HAHA! Okay.. back to the photos..

Here’s a wide-shot of the overnight houses and open-cottages.

Directions to Damires Hills (Tierra Verde)

A few weeks ago I was invited to take pictures of the resort for their 4th anniversary and the day of their anniversary.Β  So I called Ron out to go with me and stay the night at the resort along with my dear life partner Khlea who works there. (Hey bae! Hehe)

I will be posting the photos I took for Damires Hills on my “TRIPS TO JANIUAY” category (<– I will be inserting the link for the photos here later…)

Damires Hills is located at Brgy. Damires in Janiuay, Iloilo.
It’s just a 30-45 minute drive from the city.

There are 2 routes that I’ve driven through so far.. (curious if there are other routes I could take for fun! please comment or leave me a message if you’ve taken other routes besides these)

One is taking the road coming from Jaro Plaza off to follow the road to CPU (Central Philipppine University)Β  to Ungka terminal to Janiuay.

While the other is my current favorite..

From SM City, Diversion Road going to the Airport but before entering the gates of the airport there is this other road to the right that leads you to the road to CABATUAN, what’s nice about this route is since this road is near the airport you could see all the planes either taking off or landing a few miles away from you..
(plus the fields, ‘that’ one tree that looks like the tree from the “Wild thornberrys” and farm animals)
Seeing the runway is the best thing to see at night especially when a plane is landing.

This week was awesome, there was a plane about to land and it was just right above the pick-up truck that I was driving! We were too happy about it that we didn’t have the time to get our camera! Haha.
So yeah, try taking this route one time and you’ll know what I mean.

But for those who wants to ride a JEEP going to Janiuay, You could take a jeep in TAGBAK TERMINAL which costs around P28

FROM TAGBAK TERMINAL
The earliest jeep goes around 6:00 AM
The last jeep at aroundΒ  9:00 PM

FROM JANIUAY TO ILOILO
The earliest jeep goes around 4:30/5:00 AM
The last jeep at aroundΒ  6:00 PM

When you reach the plaza you could ask where to get a TRICYCLE going to Damires it’s not that far from the plaza and take you about 5 mins or less to go there. The Plete or FARE for the Trike is P20/person

Khlea told me that you could ride a jeep that goes to BADIANGAN because the jeep’s route passes by the gates of DAMIRES HILLS.
(But I haven’t ridden that one yet)
The Badiangan jeep costs around P30

HEY GUYS, I’M BACK!

I'm back!

Hey-ho-hey guys! How have you guys been? (*put bags down, remove cap, brush back hair w/ right hand*) “I’M BAAAAAAAACK!” πŸ™‚ Sorry for the long inactivity guys! The past 8 months was just crazy.. A lot of things happened this year both good and bad. Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions! TheΒ  day before valentines day my dad passed away… I have grieved and I have cried a river in my bed but I know that crying was not gonna bring daddy back. I’ve lost faith in Jesus the day he died (but I’ve still been praying that prayer before meals though <– this, I find really funny) as months passed without my “FAITH IN GOD” people have been pushing me to go to church and then one day I did (with my friends) and then booom, tears began to fall and I started crying heavily alone sitting in that wooden pew in church then there I thought to myself that maybe I have just been running away from the thought that my dad had left us to go to a better place and to stop feeling the pain that he has been feeling for the past years. My dad was a religious man, so religious that I used to call him “FATHER” like the real father of the church. (Haha) but seriously he was. He would always tell everybody to go to church on Sundays and to keep praying or just give a little one-on-one time with Jesus. I know he always wanted me to keep my faith so that whatever crazy things I face, I’ll always have god with me. but aaanyways, knowing dad, I know he’s happier now that he is with his creator. πŸ™‚ Okaaaay, EMO-ME is done now! Sorry for the 8 months of inactivity and I can’t wait to update y’all with all the GOOD things and events that is happening to me now! NEW LAYOUT! NEW CONTENT! I hope this makes it much easier for you guys to navigate on. (I am still working on some pages so It’ll be “UNDER-CONSTRUCTION” for now but I have placed linked-photo-posts on those pages, I swear I’m working on it! Haha) Update y’all very soon! Thanks for reading this post!Aenri (aah-yen-ree)
