My favorite rooms and houses are my own room and our family’s house in Luzon and in the Visayas.. however, they are for private viewing only :P
But as I travel, I have lived in different places, and have experienced how it feels to be in different classes of the social hierarchy system.. And I realized each has its own charming corners on earth, which makes me want to consider those my homes too..
One of them is the homestay in Lake, Sebu, South Cotabato.
There’s no room actually.. its one big traditional Tiboli house with no partition.. but your bed is decorated like a royal.. It’s a safe haven and the cold weather provides natural air conditioning that will make you sleep sound at night.
The amenities are basic but the experience is grand.
So if you get lost in Central Mindanao, you know where to go. More details can be found here: http://grasya.com/2012/12/tiboli-tribe-and-lake-sebu-summer-capital-south-philippines/
However, I also have other homes.. well.. indeed they felt like permanent homes that made me think twice where my home really is. One winner in my heart is located in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
It’s a bit far, around 35 minutes from the city center.. which makes it my new hidden paradise <3
Hot shower, aircon, tv, strong internet signal, and most of all, I got it at a discounted rate.. so I stayed for not just a day, not just 2 days, but I stayed for 2 months!
Thank you to fairies on earth. ^_^
This is the table where I eat without a chair.. and if I feel like it, I don’t use spoon and fork too ;)
It is very traditional and authentic way to experience living daily life away from Chiang Mai’s busy city center. If you are in Chiang Mai and wants some peace and quiet, let me know if you want to stay in this resort. I can try to negotiate a price for you.
