Its a resort. Something we can probably call an inland resort.
Hey, looking for Marju Krisel will make you realize how big Calbayog City is. I know the total land area of this city is bigger than Singapore, but I did not realize the city center itself, though not (yet) really that urbanized, is that big. Like from the heart of the city to Marju Krisel was still such a trip via tricycle. Everyone I asked said its just “somewhere there” – but I estimate that should be about 4 kilometers on the Maharlika Highway from cit center! Well, its still some 2 kilometers before the airport, so it is really within the main hub that is Calbayog City.
Interestingly, there is also a smaller (single) bed near the door (lower-right of photo above). I wondered what it was for so I asked a manang housekeeper. She told me “if there are more of you” which I think was quite obvious anyway hehe. I don’t know why I asked about it, but quite a witty reply for a stupid question hahaha! The thing with that single bed is it looks like an anti-climax for the big queen size bed that is way center of the room. Something like you’d feel you are a lesser human being if you get assigned to that bed instead of the big one hehe. Interesting, really!
I’m searching for a better word than “cozy” – that should be Marju Krisel!
