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.
For this year's opening salvo of 7-Questions, Louie (http://www.nomadperspectives.com/) and I would like to take you to the magical, the serene and the utterly beautiful province of South Cotabato.
Right after my cousin's wedding reception last December, a few of my relatives and I met up for a few 'catch-up drinks.'
I must give it then to Iligan's many hardworking residents who still chose to stay in a city that has been through a lot.
I was excited with Mercato de Oro for at least 2 good reasons. I thought that this is a welcome alternative, to the Night Cafe at Divisoria, the closure of which drew mixed reactions from the city residents.
Just when I thought that I knew Iligan like the back of my hand, I was surprised to find out how ignorant I am of this city all this time.
There is a bunkhouse at the peak of Mt. Kitanglad (2899 MASL) in Bukidnon in Southern Philippines. Like most hotels or inns, you also need prior reservation to guarantee a slot there.
