Romel (the owner) was kind enough to tour us around the place especially the â€œprivate-onlyâ€ spots that only privileged visitors like us see :)Â I was not able to take a picture of the private spots as respect and courtesy to the owner, but what my eyes saw were just really majestic.Â We stayed in the private cabana that Romel reserved for us.Â These areas are only accessible to certified â€œLa Luziansâ€ and thought it was my first time there, Iâ€™m just glad I was able to be a part of it, instantly!Â Thanks to Poch for serving as our host for the duration of our stay there.
Pictures and cam-whoring photo ops:
Sadly, I forgot my two key cameras! My lumix and my D40!Â But I packed the charger for both cameras it was just a forgetful me that his happenedâ€¦ sighâ€¦ Though, I still survived the weekend without it and used my handy nokia e63 (super last resort) and my other well-preferred camera phone, the W760i. 🙂
