This Side of Sarangani

While we were in Gen. Santos City, Mindanao last month, my sister together with her son toured my hubby and me in nearby Sarangani Province. It was about a decade ago when I first visited the place. It still has its distinct, natural charm. We stopped by at its white and seemingly massive Provincial Capitol building. It has huge grounds, by the way, which are covered in well-kept Bermuda grass.
We also went to A-Montana Resort (formerly known as Isla Parilla Resort) in Alabel where we had just a relaxing time, eating halo-haloย ice cream and just taking a stroll around the place. We decided not to use the swimming pool since there was an event near the pool that time. On our way back to Gensan, we also saw again clearly the impressive Mt. Matutum. All in all, it was quite a refreshing day ๐Ÿ™‚
Sarangani province consists of 7 municipalities grouped into two parts, separated by Sarangani Bay. Kiamba, Maasim and Maitum comprises the western part while the eastern part is composed of Alabel, Glan, Malapatan and Malungon. We ย had our fun time in the eastern side.
