It takes GUTZ to be a Guttierez in Paradizoo Theme Farm in Mendez, Cavite and Residence Inn, Tagaytay under Zoomanity Group

My kids, especially my eldest since she’s the one who knows about animals, love the zoo. When we went to Tagaytay last December 2013, we made it a point to schedule a trip to the zoo so they can see how animals looked in real life and not just in books. I’m not sure if there are other zoos in Tagaytay so we headed straight to Residence Inn.  Residence Inn Tagaytay 1

Residence Inn Zoo is smaller compared to the other zoos I’ve been to. It may be because of space limitations, I don’t really know. Still, all the “basic” animals are there like lion, tiger, birds and monkeys. There was even a section for insects. My eldest was also thrilled when she saw the rabbits and fishes and was so amazed the whole time. My youngest, which was six months old at that time, was just busy looking around and making noises together with the monkeys. There was also a show, which we were not able to watch since my youngest was quite agitated already. Maybe next time. Residence Inn Tagaytay 2

What I like most about this zoo is that it doesn’t smell that bad compared to the others. Lol! And yes, I really love the view since it is overlooking Taal volcano. Can you get that in other zoos?

It takes GUTZ to be a Guttierez is a Channel E exclusive about famous royal showbiz family in the Philippines. It’s a reality tv series about the interesting and exciting life of the Gutierrez headed by Eddie Guttierez and Annabel Rama.

On November 30, 2014 at 9PM, the show aired their experience when they went to Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite (Upper Tagaytay) and Residence Inn (Tagaytay proper), two of the famous theme parks under Zoomanity Group, the leading theme park management in the Philippines under Robert Laurel Yupangco of Yupangco Group of Companies.

According to Leonardo Badon Jr. of Zoomanity Group, “Paradizoo Theme Farm was featured in “It takes GUTZ to be a Gutierrez”, the Best Reality Show at the concluded PMPC Star Awards ‘2014. A paradise in the south, Paradizoo Theme Farm is a farm for romantic people. a place for family, barkadas, friends and those who loves nature. The Gutierrez family went there to explore and experience a different farm lifestyle.”

The episode revolves when family is having a photo shoot. The Gutz family gets prepped for a group photo shoot and after when they check the pictures they notice that their mother Annabelle is gaining weight. So, Ruffa suggested that they should hire a personal trainer to help their mother lose weight by working out. Perspiration for inspiration to remove the fat of course. In other words, with so many shots in between, they went to Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite, not only to have a clean and fresh air but for Annabel to have a chance to exercise in a different way, walking in the farm.

Annabelle and Eddie bond with the grandkids, Richard with Sarah and Ruffa tried to milk the goats in the barn with the friendly and expert tour guide from Paradizoo. Super farm life only at Paradizoo.

One activity too in Paradizoo or more like an advocacy is to give education. During the tour, they learn about the process of making honey and what happens when the honey bees mate.

The handsome Richard and lovely Sarah got their time alone time together. They ride the cable car at Residence Inn, Tagaytay as they talk about planning their wedding and other future plans.

Paradizoo and Residence Inn are under Zoomanity Group. Paradizoo is a 12 hectares farm while Residence Inn is a 2 hectare theme park with hotel inside overlooking the majestic Taal volcano.

    I’ve heard a lot about Zoomanity, but we have not been there, lol… I’ve seen a couple of episodes and I find them awkward. Hope they will be more natural in the succeeding eps. 😀

    I’ve always been curious about this show but haven’t been able to catch any episode of it. It must have been fun for them to spend time at the zoo especially with the baby. 🙂
