“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
Hola! What’s up, sweethearts? Anything up today? As promised, I will be showing you Mabinay, PH! How cool is that? Ha. Anyway, let’s see..
Mabinay is the first class municipality of Negros Oriental, PH with 32 barangays (villages), and over 75, 000 residents. It’s the Cave capital of the Philippines with over 400 caves in total. Amazing, eh? Photo above proves! Ha. It is known for its Langub festival celebrated every January each year. Langub is a Visayan dialect for Cave.
Well, aside from the caves, Mabinay has natural springs and rivers that serve as the main water resource of the town. The springs are great for family, and friends outing whenever you guys are tired of the busy city, and wants to feel the tranquility of the nature. Try checking this town out and you won’t regret! :D
Mabinay is a two-hour drive from Dumaguete City, and three hours from Bacolod City, Negros Occidental.
Okay, I still want to talk. So, I will continue talking. Anyway, I was here last year, and this year too! Whoop! Mighty Novera, a good friend from there, and every year, their barangay celebrates its festivities, and some of my friends were there too. The plan was to stay there overnight, then go home, but for some lovely reasons, we stayed for another night. Izza, and her son – Zeke were there, with Joey. We’re all ladies! Haha. We went caving with Mighty, Gerard (Mighty’s brother), Hila, Izza, Zeke, and Joey. We planned to visit at least three caves, but we ended visiting two caves ‘coz it was too hot and we were too tired from the dancing party the other night! God knows it was surely a party! Partyyyyy!!! Haha. We visited the Pandalihan Cave and the Crystal Cave. I am not sure if I have the right term, but I guess it’s Pandalihan. Anyone who can correct me would be appreciated. :D
After caving, we went to Mabinay Spring and did the zip line! Jesus Christ! My knees were shaking! I’m one of those cowards, ya know! :D But there was no chance of going back. So, I did it with my eyes closed, or else I’d feel like I’m dying! However, it was really great!! And doing the zip line is only for P100.00 (Philippine Peso) per head. Kids are free. It was really cheap. Nice! Mabinay Spring entrance fee is P10.00 or P15.00. They also offer Kayaking for a very minimal cost. Lotsa people down there especially during summer.
Alright, I think the talking is enough. Ha. Let me show ya some photos! I will also post some photos from last year. I think I still have the pics from Mabinay Highland Resort.
