Zamboanguita in Sanskrit, means a "SONG FOR ALL" a 4th class municipality of Negros Oriental Province and it's named acquired on a progressive city from the distant - Zamboanga City. However, this is my 2nd stop after I explored Lake Balanan in Siaton, my eagerness to scrutinize the Zoo Paradise World in Salngan, Zamboanguita was superb. Thus, I believed and I knew that this is our favorite spot and dream when we were a kid. Nonetheless, It was 10 years ago when this Zoo was untold by my Grandmother and shared her experiences inside this place. She said that they have "Sigbin" in lay-mans term a "Pet of a Witch" here alive! Whoah! Excitement and fear enveloped my whole being.
As I am riding on a Public Utility vehicle from Siaton I informed the Konduktor to drop me off in front of Zoo Paradise entrance. At the Zoo inlet, there's a big Signage that says "Welcome to Nature City" for sure if you have plan to visit this place someday you will not miss it. Since, I am in a hurry that time because after this fantastic visit, I need to go back to Cebu City. So, we paid our entrance (PHP 20.00) hurriedly and the receptionist gave us a small brochure regarding the place and some thoughts to ponder. After that, we are free to stroll and explore the place, absolutely!
