... Jon's mouths as they fight for a spot on my lap, or the grins plastered on their faces as we are reunited after a few days apart. The numerous times the teenagers teach me wrong from right, when it comes to cooking the local dishes or speaking waray-waray. The sweet voice of Nanay Elay, who has become like a grandmother to me and virtually the entire village, asking what I'd like to buy from her store today. The kind gesture of the father who helps me carry a ...
... The only downside was that we returned to base after our curfew which was not viewed favorably but we apologized for the unforeseen overstay.
All I can say is that those who work hard have a right to play hard. So, that's what we did and it was a hilarious, entertaining, competitive, social event that all of us enjoyed.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAsia Stars Hotel Tacloban
All of the good hotels are already fully booked so we just stayed in this hotel because we are so tired travelling by van from maasin back to tacloban which was 4 long hours. The lobby was filled with hotel guests because thats where the free wifi is available.
The room we booked was 1,500 php for overnight stay but not inclusive of free breakfast which i thought was kinda overpriced.
The aircondition was working fine and also they have a big television. I didn't like that there were two mosquitos flying around and i had to catch them or they'll have a feast on us during the night. Also the floor is not cleaned properly and there was slippers covered in dust available,
We were so tired, we did not bother with the not-so-clean room, and just slept trought the night.
