First Visit to Mambukal Hot Sulphur Springs Resort, Koronadal City before the Covid-19 lockdown

Image
Before the Covid-19 lockdown started in Mindanao Region in Philippines, we had an opportunity to visit Mambukal Hot Sulphur Spring Resort in Koronadal City South Cotabato. We went there to celebrate Joel's birthday. This was our first visit there  and we only spent a night thinking we'd be back again in the next week or so. So glad we were able to visit but so sad we weren't able to go back again due to Corona Virus Pandemic.  How to get there? The road going to Mambukal Resort is partly rough road and the road gets narrower the closer we get to the resort. The resort is not that far from the city but it feels like I'm in the jungle. Nice and secluded place with lots of greenery.  From the main road of Banga-Koronadal City Road (Coming From Surallah) it was about 5 miles to get there.  Using Bautista G. Hubero Sr. Road we basically just follow the small signs on the road. Also using Google Maps helps too. Here's the Address: Mambukal Hot Sulphur Spring Resort , Ba

We had an opportunity to stop at Seafood City in Tukwila, Washington. I took advantage of the opportunity and bought some fresh vegetables for cooking Pinakbit or pakbit. I miss eating pinakbit since I'm living in an RV full time, a home away from home, I got to do what I have to do (means I have to cook it myself) No friends and no family who can cook it for me.

Toad River Lodge and RV park is about 647 kilometer from Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada. We stopped there for a night on our way to Alaska. This place is known for world famous hat collection. Although, I didn't get to go inside the office/store/restaurant to take a picture of the hats due to covid-19 pandemic. Following the rules of staying away and isolating while driving through Canada. Toad River Lodge are open year round. They have restaurant, gift shop, lodge with motel, cabins, laundromat, WiFi, satellite TV, gas, diesel, propane, tire repair, pull-thru site with full hookups, free firewood, greyhound bus, post office, and the spectacular views of the Reflection lake and mountains behind it.
