    Hi Mea,

    I was once a resident of Bacolod during my college days and has moved to Manila in 2012. I found your blogs very interesting, Im just curious if you’re also interested about financial literacy like bloggers Fitz Villafuerte and Bo Sanchez.

    • Mea P.

      Hi Neo, I am very much into financial literacy 🙂 I’ve taken it upon myself to be smart with money. I do have some content lined up for that topic but that’s like the next phase of the blog 🙂 Thanks for dropping by!

    Are there any reservations today ?

    • Mea P.

      Hi Ched, unfortunately they are fully booked until 2017…

    It will be one of the top destination in Negros. Hope I could visit jomax peak next year.

    • Mea P.

      It probably will 🙂 I hope they can develop the place more and make it bigger…

    Naghire po ba kayo ng private car or sumakay rin kayo ng ceres bus? Hindi po ba kami mahihirapan umuwi if in case sasakay lang kami ng bus?

    • Mea P.

      Hi, thanks for dropping by. Please check the new Jomax Peak rates on their Facebook page. We went by our own car but I don’t think it would be difficult when you go by bus. You just have to leave early 🙂 A private car is more convenient but you have to be sure that the car is in top shape. Taas kasi 🙂 Enjoy Jomax Peak!

    How about if you will be there for overnight camp? what’s the rate?

    • Mea P.

      I think the rate is P200 per person with a minimum of 5. Please check their FB page to double check 🙂

  6. cecille

    Can we go to joemax peak for picture taking only? Is there an amount to pay? thanks

    • Mea P.

      Hi, yes. I think it’s P200 🙂

  7. joemel barredo

    mag pa reserve ng sunny shade po seperate po dyan ang fee per head na 150 ? is it possible kaya ng sasakyan na lowered like vios pa akyat ? thank you 🙂

    • Mea P.

      Heya Joemel, thanks for dropping by. You will love it there, promise! I think there’s a separate pay for the sunny shade, but please check their Facebook. I am working on an updated info post for this place. As for the vios, as far as I know the road is not bumpy. It would be best to give them a call to really confirm if a Vios is ok 🙂

  8. joemel barredo

    is it possible kaya ng vios pa akyat ? thank you 🙂

  9. Hannah B.

    Hi! Do you have any idea why they would require a minimum of 5 for each group? My friends and I are thrilled to visit this place, but we’re only 3. 🙁

    • Mea P.

      I think it is alright if you three go there as long as you pay for 5 people. Please double check this with Jomax Peak to be sure 🙂

    Hi Mea,

    I would like to ask if when will be the best time to go to Jomax Peak? Like in the uppermost picture in your blog where it has fogs?

  11. Salve Ban
