Cabanatuan City : Tabon Fish Pool

Cabanatuan Secret Paradise
All manner of traveler's tales talk about how one resort outdoes the other. But for a while, seeing one is pretty much like seeing them all, and the thrill is totally and completely gone. But in the case of Tabon Fish Pool, a family resort in Cabanatuan, a welcome surprise awaits.


Mirrored Pond
Boat Your Way
A canny play on words make "fish pool" a peaceful haven for calm water enthusiasts. Owned by a game fish hobbyist, life-sized statues of fishermen with their hooks and baits are strategically placed around the resort. The owner of this resort is also a traveler and found ideas on designs from his travels around the world. Also, since most of the times, he is not satisfied with the local resorts he has visited, he made one which will welcome him and act as his place of respite whenever he comes home.

This resort is all about water with four swimming pools - one is olympic sized, one is jacuzzi-like, one is for kids, while one has overhead sprinkler that mimics the rain. There are several interconnecting fishponds too where one can navigate using their fish pool bancas. And of-course, one may just sit down on several aisle in the pond and catch fresh water fishes that are abundant therein. This is truly a diversion from the plain rice fields that Cabanatuan is known for.

Tabon Fish Pool Resort is still a work-in progress but all the basic amenities are already in place. There are available rooms with their own bathrooms for those who wanted to stay the night. There are also several cottages and huts for day-trippers. Although it is not yet open to the public, this resort can cater to private affairs. For inquiries, you may visit their facebook page here.

Hutty Reflections
And just for the sake of reminiscing, I have featured this place almost four years ago in this blog in a post entitled "Gone Fishing". How time flies and oh how the place changed drastically over the years. You may check out my post then here.

  4. It's been 48 years since I bloghopped, hehehe, and I liked the new changes in your blog. Especially the header and the catchy "Oman is an Island" blog title.

    It's always a treat to read featured posts about home towns.

  13. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    Boycott American Women

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

    1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

    2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

    3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

    4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

    5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

    Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

    A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

    -25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
    -25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
    -85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
    -70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
    -The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

    Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
