We usually go to Guimaras in the mornings but last Saturday was different. We went there at around 4 pm. We did not have a solid plan,we did not have an itinerary.

We decided to meet at Ortiz but it was probably under renovation or something. We went to the Parola wharf instead. We arrived at the Jordan Wharf at around 5 pm. We had no idea where to go, people there were asking us about our destination. In the end we decided to go to Kenyama instead.

The trip took longer as compared to that of Alubihod or Lawi. Guisi is in Nueva Valencia. It is where the tower is. We arrived at around 7 pm and we were dead hungry. The resort had no meals to serve other than breakfast meals which costs about 130 pesos (Iced Tea plus a Silog of your choice.)

The room that we took was an native cottage room with a sleeping area. We paid 1200 pesos for it. The comfort room was just a few paces away from our cottage. There was a shower area and two areas for answering nature’s calls.

In the morning we went to the Tower, we took photos there. The entrance to the tower is 10 pesos per person. If it’s not for it’s history, you would not want to visit the place I mean, its nothing but an unused tower, no nothings.

There is a new white tower that is in use. It is beside the old rusty tower. If you ask the caretaker, they can going up there is okay. If you go there, you get to see the big white warning on the old tower about the dangers of going up. You decide for yourself whether you think it’s worth it or not. I did come up the, the view if great but the risk of the tower, parts falling off and all is very very likely to occur. There were five of us there. We took turns in going up as we were scared that we might ruin the ruins if all five of us climb in there at the same time.

Going back, we used another route, by shore. There were stones where we needed to climb and all. That was the adventure part of our trip. It was fun and scary. It’s not really that dangerous but we had electronics that we were trying to protect thus we were scared of falling off.

The things that you own end up owning you was very true. kudos to Chuck Palahnuik in that quote in his book, Fight Club. I now know and understand that feeling.
