Oscar Magwilang

Written By (sagada genuine guides association inc). on Thursday, June 26, 2008 | 10:14 PM

Mr. Oscar here is one of the older guides in our group, what's best about him is his deep concern for his clients regarding their safety and entertainment during his tours.

si "Kuya OSCAR"
He is good in establishing rapport to his clients and is currently second in the attainment of a satisfactory tour. He is a very very cool friend worth talking with while staying in Sagada. He knows everything about our traditions and culture.

(coolness pause ka dyan oscar ahhh)

Cave guiding is his specialty, and he is very patient and helpful making it easier for you to survive the adventures of Spelunking..

wow! Si Kuya Oscar, our tour guide sa Cave Connection Challenge.... Mabait and ma-kwento... I even stay in their transient house, even his lovely wife is maasikaso din. There was an instance na kuyang kuyang ang dating nya sa kin... haha :D

hi, kuya Oscar! our very bait and patient tour guide when we went to Sagada. He's also our professional photographer when we're on tour. : ) Kuya, we're so flattered to see our photo with you on the SAGGAS web page. Even my digicam naka-extra rin! kc you were attaching it onto the tripod kaya hayun nasama tuloy sya sa supposd to be solo pic mo, hehehe!: )
Kuya, it was a pleasure to have you around when we were there.. U made things easy and comfortable for us.
We really fell inlove with the place. How I wish I could buy a piece of land there para maging adoptive Sagadian na rin ako, hehehe! The place is so secure and the people are very warm and hospitable, too. : ) God's willing, we'll be coming back by Feb 2009. Kuya, kaw ulit tour guide namin ha..? I'll be sending our photos on your email add para it can help in promoting Sagada. So that more and more people would come to your place to see its pristine and exquisite beauty.. See you again soon kuya and regards to all : )

kuya oscar!!! it seems everyone calls you "kuya" automatically . . . this because you are very concerned about your guests.

although our group wasn't guided by kuya oscar, we were able to get to know him as a very warm, friendly and trustworthy host!

he allowed us to spend new year's eve with him and his family . . . that's how great this person is!!!

January 25, 2010 at 2:13 PM

kuya oscar was very professional. they have a very nice and homey transcient named, kanip-aw lodge..has a very good family. his wife was very friendly and we can move around the house easily and can even use their pc to check email and facebook. hehe...he made sure guest feel comfortable in sumaguing cave adventure...and crack jokes most of the time..i think that's the trademark of magwilang brothers (including kevin)...sagads was memorable thanks to discover asia for booking us in their place and having them (oscar and kevin) as our guides... till next time...

ang HHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ng pasensya ni Oscar sa amin at napakaFLEXIBLE niya in terms of anong "technique" gawin ng bawat isa sa amin para lang magawa ang dapat gawin. Aside from being our official tour guide, he was our information center, waiter, driver, photographer at mp3 player (kasi nagpatugtog siya while we're having the connection).

Apat kaming puro babae at mga diva pa ang mga ugali tapos nag-ilusyon na kayanin ang cave connection. To think na first time naming apat magcaving, imagine n'yo nalang kung gaano ka ingay at katagal bago namin natapos ang connection.

Nagstay kami ng 1 night sa lodge nila (KANIP-AW PINES VIEW LODGE). Malinis, may hot water shower, maganda ang view at nakaka-adik ang mountain tea na kasa sa dinner namin. Friendly at mabait ang kanyang asawa at ang cute ng mga anak nila.

Maraming, maraming, maraming, maraming, maraming, maraming, maraming, maraming salamat sa 'yo. Napakamemorable ng experience (in a very good way). A lot of thanks also to James (our second guide).

In behalf of Ann, Raquel and Hazel, a sincere and heartfelt thanks to you Oscar. At wala pong galing sa labas sa amin. Takot lang talaga kaming magtagalog. hahaha...
