Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
If you ask an Ormocanon on where's the best place to stay in Ormoc, the usual answer would be Sabin Resort Hotel, a beachfront facility a few minutes drive (or jeepney ride) away from Ormoc City proper.
Tutubi was able to visit the place recently and offers a few pictures of the place as well as his observations and impressions of Sabin Resort Hotel but no full-blown review on food, staff and service as he did not actually stay there.

Sabin Resort Hotel's swimming pool, really nice, well-lit at night and surrounds the main building where overnight accommodations at the resort lie.

Sabin Resort Hotel is a beach front resort, nice sunset but the beach is actually rocky, so don't get your hopes up for a nice beach resort in Ormoc
Review of Sabin Resort Hotel:
Note: Tutubi only inspected the place and didn't actually stay there (he stayed at OCCCI Hostel in the middle of Ormoc). All he can say is that the swimming pool looks really nice, snakes around the resort facility but the beach, being a beach front resort, is far from being good, no white sand beaches in this part of the world called Ormoc Bay, probably why Sabin is a resort but not a beach resort.
Room Rates: With 60 rooms available, a Superior room start at P1600.00/room while on the upper end is the Presidential Suite at P3800/room. Extra bed at P400/person.

ahh, this post brings back really nice memories of my stay there four years ago for my cousin's wedding. the resort's a beautiful place; stayed there for 3 days 2 nights but only ate twice there--the reception on the second night and breakfast before leaving. service was quite slow but then there were many people at that time.
"The failure rate for a vasectomy is less than one percent. But your vasectomy is no immediate guarantee against pregnancy because of the sperm stored above the part where the vas deferens was cut. Thus, your physician will want to test your ejaculate for sperm. Generally, in most men the semen becomes sperm-free after eight to 10 ejaculations following the vasectomy. Until your physician has determined that your ejaculate does not contain sperm, you should continue to use contraception," said Dr. David E. Larson, editor-in-chief of the "Mayo Clinic Family Health Book."
