from binan;

left manila in 0640H and made our way to SLEX then going to southwoods exit via hired van for 6 pax. we arrived 0815H with almost abosolute no traffic jam. dropped-in first to metrodeal's booth to exchange the printed vouchers to entrance tickets. then, we entered the park after the crew inspected our bags for possible drinks and some food stuff. there are free cottage offered but the locations were not so way off to the main attractions. most of the exciting and cool rides opened on 1030H and 1200H. that time also there were batch of college students so crowds were everywhere. my favorite slides were king pilipit and  big bamboo because of the rush and sudden drop-outs, i even repeated it by 4 times. we had our lunch in their food court buying the inasal with rice for an affordable and very reasonable price of php100. we left this park around 1430H.
