Inside the GLASS COTTAGE, good for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Because it’s made of glass walls, you will see the outside right away. Very refreshing to see the nature as you wake up in the morning! Ang cool ng experience.

There are ATVs as well.


Floating bridge. One of the many teambuilding activities that you can try.


Bigger teambuilding area where you can play volleyball etc.

How To Make a Viral Video?

Help! We are currently working on a project, the goal is to make it viral (we hope), rewarding and high-yielding. We’re looking at different options:

  • Music video type of thing, shot at a resort/pool area – similar to Justin Bieber’s Beauty and the Beat MV.
  • MV of a local artist singing acoustic songs.
  • Short and funny skit ala infomercial.

I a more leaning towards the second option since we only need to prepare a few things – improvised stage or recording room, acoustic guitar and a cool telefunken mic (suitable for voice on both stage and in the studio).


It requires fewer manpower too and it’s a lot less complicated to shoot and edit! My only concern is that it may look boring and may never get as viral as I hope it will be. God please let the creative juices flowing! Deadline of the storyboard is Friday already!
