On its first trip, the team went to Southpick Resort and Hotel in Santa Rosa, Laguna and tried different activities such as billiards, arcade, basketball, KTV, and swimming. The vlog also shows a virtual tour of the hotel rooms and resort amenities that will soothe every viewer’s senses with its minimalist design.
