ILOCOS NORTE: LA PRECIOSA RESTAURANT

Still in Laoag.  It was almost noon when we left the market.  We decided to have lunch before going back to the hotel.  We drove around for a couple of minutes not knowing where we were going to eat.  We drove past the emapanada stalls in the city but everyone was still sweating after the...

ILOCOS NORTE: LAOAG PUBLIC MARKET

On our last day, we headed off to the market to buy pasulubong.  The market was clean... but after two days of hiking and walking around Ilocos, I wasn't so happy to find more stairs.  Their market actually have several floors. so we went up to flights of stairs and found the meat section... on...

ILOCOS NORTE: BERGBLICK RESTAURANT

Dead tired, sweating, aching limbs, sunburnt... we climb back to our vehicle and drove off somewhere for lunch -- rather late lunch.  I wasn't really hungry since I've been downing bottles after bottles of liquid after the trek from the rocks.  I was just happy to be enjoying the cool air conditioning inside car and...

ILOCOS NORTE: HERENCIA RESTAURANT

ENROUTE: BACOLOD-MANILA-ILOCOS

We've been planning to go to Ilocos for some time... but it never seem to push through for one reason or another.   Luckily, this June... we made it.   All throughout the year, airlines have seat sales... and with enough luck, a round trip plane ticket to Laoag would cost about the same (or...

BACOLOD: COMFORT FOOD

Has the rainy season started? I doesn't matter... whether it's the changing of seasons or just summer rain, the respite from the heat of the past months is more than welcomed.  And there's nothing like a steaming bowl of batchoy to comfort one's soul during the rain filled afternoons.  What's in this Ilonggo noodle dish...

DAVAO: THE CHEESE MAKER

A few weeks before my trip to Davao, I read an article in a travel magazine about artisan cheese in Davao.  It was interesting.  But since I'm not so fond and knowledgeable of cheeses with foreign sounding and hard to pronounce names... I didn't place it in out itinerary.  I'm more of "store/grocery bought cheese"... Continue Reading →

PRE-CHRISTMAS GET TOGETHER
