Bataan mountain resort in an evening of X’mas carols


    ORANI, Bataan– Friday night was an evening of love and  Christmas songs by the poolside of Sinagtala, a mountain    resort at the foot of the mountain range of the Bataan National  Park in Orani town.

    “This is a perfect and mag-ical night for all of you,” former Bases Conversion Development  Authority Chairman Felicito “Tong” Payumo told hundreds of visitors. Payumo, president of the University of Nueva Caceres  branch in Dinalupihan, Bataan, is  one of the owners of Sinagtala located in Barangay  Tala which has climate similar to Tagaytay City in Batangas.

    “Hindi lang tulad ng klima  sa Tagaytay kundi may libreng breakfast pa rito,” Payumo  told visitors enjoying the cool weather at his vacation house  with twinkling Christmas lanterns shaped like morning  stars where the name of the resort Sinagtala was derived from.

    Christmas lanterns made  of “palapa and bao” of coconuts adorned the poolside and the entrance to the pool. The Kabataan Orchestra and the Chamber Chorale of the Bataan Peninsula  State University rendered beautiful love and Christmas songs.

    The Kabataan Orchestra  is composed of youth, the youngest at 10 years old, from Pagalanggang, Dinalupihan. “We are not only saving  the youth away from drugs but enhancing their talent  through music,” Payumo said.
