This and the following photos are taken at Alomah’s Place in Dahilayan village at Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. It is a place where structures are made of bamboo culms. Alomah’s Place is good venue for camping. Groups can light bonfire. Accommodation is also customer-friendly and creative. Visitors can sleep in tents for only P500.00 fee. They can also have the strategic Tent Floor, a 2-storey house with a KTV bar, own lavatory and CR, living room, dining area and 5 tents on the 2nd floor. Each tent can cater 2 persons. What’s good thing about it is overnight pay is negotiable. Other than that are 2 beautiful cottages good for 4 persons at P2,500. Personally, I so like the place, it’s eco-friendly nature and the vast of greens surrounding it.
The story of Alomah’s is keeping me inspired. Alomah’s got its name from the owners last name Mahestrado and his wife’s maiden name Alombro.
Their place is not just recreational. They also grow vegetables such as lettuce and feed them with organic fertilizer. Other than letting their visitors stay in their plays, they also offer farm learning tour to them (in which unfortunately we haven’t done during our visit because it was raining).
Both of them are farmers and very proud and loud of it. During our conversation, the owner said that it frequently happen when he, still in plain working clothes, would meet walk-in customers and introduce the place to them. Sometimes, he would tell the visitors to stay put for a little while for he has to call the manager, then come back to them in the same face and changed clothes. He said he could just laugh in their surprise faces.
What made me admire further is when the owner said, “We want visitors to know us as farmers, not as owners.”
I will gladly come back to this place to savor its beauty and richness.
