After we checked-in, I was relieved to find out that our accommodation was a lot more spacious compared to the photos of it I saw online. Our room was already fitted with four single beds, the two were extras I think, each of which had their customized signature fluffy pillows. Needless to say that the property was named after these babies.
Dinagat island food trip: Mabuhay Dina Gat Restaurant, Denor Restaurant and balut in pretty glass enclosures.
I once did a blog a collaboration with Lisa Mirasol of Pinaytravelista.com where we shared various travel tips about Iligan, a highly-urbanized city in Southern Philippines.
Little did I know that a few months after I published that entry, I was fortunate enough to return to my beloved birthplace to participate in the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0, a unique weekender organized by the Iligan Bloggers Society.
I actually expected a few hotcake stalls that morning. Mrs. Carissa Tolo or Nang Isang would later tell me that there used to be five of them back in 1984. Her fellow hotcake vendors have since left Butuan, but she chose to stay in the city. She has been flipping these beloved pancakes ever since.

Although Ronald bought these goodies at another city in the Zamboanga Peninsula, these reminded me of Canelar, a popular shopping center for 'traded' items in Zamboanga City.
Bontoc, compared to Sagada, Banaue or Kalinga, is often overlooked. But there are other activities that can be done here at the crossroad town of Mountain Province.
As our bus entered the Bontoc town proper, I was unnecessarily melodramatic recalling Yeti's 'straightforward' question. Maybe it was my real age catching up. Maybe it opened a bunch of even harder life questions that I've been avoiding all this time.
I woke up just in time to catch my favorite view of Baguio City. From my window seat, I could see the hundreds of houses scattered precariously yet beautifully at a hill across us.
