“Rest house ra gyud unta namo ni sa among pamilya. Every weekend kay naga-stay mi diri para layo sa samok sa syudad unya gusto man gud namo mag-family goals sa Bali, Indonesia pero dili pa kaya sa among budget tanan so mao gi-decorate na lang namo among rest house og parehas sa mga rooms or villas sa Bali. Unya naay one-time nga nag-invite mi og friends sila na nag-ingon sa amo nga i-open na lang pud sya sa public para at least maka experience pudd aw silage mala Bali! (We always look forward to the weekend to visit our rest house. The place is very relaxing and far away from the hassle of city life. One of our family goals is to really visit Bali, Indonesia but since our budget does not allow us yet to go there, for now, we used it as an inspiration for our vacation house. When our friends experienced the place, they encouraged us to open it to the public!)” Ms. Jovy Escartin, the owner, explained.
