Party animal Jason Zarate is cool dude


Excuse me; Tagbilaran City is a city that sleeps. There’s no night life. They said, pretty boring. People will rush home and sleep.

Tarsier Travel and Tours boss and Cebu Pacific-Bohol sales agent Gen Jamisola (a goddess!) when asked by the press people in Manila has an answer.

What is your favorite night out in Tagbilaran? Her answer: Tagbilaran City offers nightlife for the party animals and to those who love the night. There are many choices from night clubs to resto bars. Perfect place to be for a night-out is Lazer Party Club at Bohol Tropics. You'll be amazed by its latest state of the art lighting facility and sounds system. There is also Atmosphere at the Metro Centre Hotel, you can party all night long that is, jamming with the city’s most sought-after bands and grooving to the beat of the planet’s hottest dance tracks. Visitors can enjoy the night at a club bursting with energy and youth vigor.

But hey, Tagbilaran City’s mood is blithe.

Jayson Borca Zarate
For Jason Zarate, the Uma look-a-like, a party
is not a party without good music, alak (wine) and friends.

When the music is buzzing and the booze overflowin’, no other partygoer/partyphile can spread the good life and vibe like Jayson “Jason” Zarate, a real party animal!

I value life seriously, because for me it’s the only thing I have to enjoy, says Jason, 24 who’s from Lucena City, Quezon but who’s here in Bohol for years for a study (a nursing student) and family business.

He shared that he’s a happy person who can make us laugh at all time & with a big heart with lots of love to give…very sensual and romantic.

I always start a day with a smile, because I don't want to spoil the rest of the day ahead, he said.

The right party clothes can put you right in the center of an awesomely cool party. But the perfect party attitude can take your much further through the evening.

Best advice you get from a friend? I should do whatever my heart tells me. I should be confident and should aim high in life.

If you have 3 wishes, what could they be? Good health, wealth, and prosperity

What are the outrageous things you heard about you? Outrageous in what sense? Good or bad?
