  1. this is a noble cause with minimal fee. I encourage everyone living nearby Fernando Air Base at Lipa city to join this event. I can’t commit to be at the area, but I try my best if I have time.

  2. i will join this one ^^, yan ang rate php50 very affordable. mas ok po siguro kung may singlet kahit add up ng konting amount ^^,

  3. How to go to Fernando Air Base, Lipa City?

    Via Provincial Bus – Take a Batangas bound bus from any of South Bus Terminals in Buendia, Alabang, EDSA-Pasay City, EDSA-Quezon City or Ali Mall Cubao. Chose via SLEX-STARTOLLWAY/CALBARZON for faster travel. Dismount at Tambo, Lipa Exit. This takes an hour of travel at P120-P130 fare. Take Mataas na Kahoy bound jeepney and tell the driver to drop you at the Air Base. 5-10 mins jeepney ride @ P7. Enter the main gate and deposit a valid ID to the guard.

    Via car – Take (SKYWAY) SLEX straight to STARTOLLWAY/CALABARZON interconnection then exit at Tambo, Lipa Exit. Total toll fee is P274 one way. Turn left then 5-10 mins you will see a large tarpaulin of the air base on your right followed by the main gate. Deposit a valid license or ID to enter Fernando Air Base.
