Wabe: Hollywood Night at Lohas

Timeout Corner

LIGHTS, camera, action! Sashaying down the red carpet over the weekend with my zumba family was thrilling and fun. We were invited by one of our zumba sisters, Helen Kim, to grace the anniversary party of her Lohas Hotel. This year’s theme was Hollywood Night, with everyone coming dressed to the nines, in all out glam.

There’s just something about attending a party like this that reminds everyone of all the good things about being alive. See, the thing about this life of ours is that it is fleeting. Time is finite and only He knows when we shall be called back. An out of the box party experience takes us out of our norm and literally helps us give life to the cliché: live life to the fullest. And really, there is nothing wrong in giving your best and living it up with flair and style.

And style, there definitely was an abundance of at Lohas on the day of the anniversary party. Good food, free flowing drinks, and entertainment made it a night to remember. There was and is much to celebrate because from a big mound of mud and grass, the CEO was able to transform his vision and make it into reality. Not only was the corporation able to make a classy place, but they were able to provide a lot of employment opportunities for the locals.

Lohas Airport Hotel is the first of its kind at Sinai, Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental, located along the national highway and only about 200 meters from the Airport Access Road Junction. If you’re wondering where the name comes from, it bears the name of the place where it is situated called Lohas Hills.

Lohas Airport Hotel is only five minutes away from the airport, making it perfect for travelers needing rest post or pre-flight. Actually, Lohas is your best and only bet if you need to be at close proximity to the Laguindingan Airport!

The lobby is on the second floor with luggage assistance readily available. There is 24-hour security on the premises. The hotel has reasonable rates with clean and comfortable accommodations. They have 16 modest-sized rooms with free Wi-Fi connectivity and swimming pool access.

Lohas is managed by Koreans so it is not surprising that their Coco Mango restaurant is chock full of Korean dishes. We eat here pretty frequently and our favorites are: Kimchi Ramyeon (ramen), Odeng Jigae (fish cake soup), Kimchi fried rice, Dongkaseu (breaded fried pork), Japchae (rice noodles), and Samgeopsal (pork barbeque wrapped in lettuce).

The Lohas Airport Hotel is just a small portion of an even bigger construction project. The Lohas Hill Homes and Business Park, both currently under development, are both located behind the hotel. Just head straight pass the guarded gates and then past the “I heart LOHAS” standee. Now, this kind of event is where we have to let the paparazzi do their jobs and let the pictures speak for themselves.
