I’m now implementing geotagging of posts here in Langyaw.com!!!
Aklan is proud of its piña (pineapple) fiber. So much so that products derived from processing these fibers into fabrics is one, if not its top industry.
For a brief moment, I was there, staring with my supertelephoto lens her gaping mouth while several thousand feet above the ground. Looking at Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon.
Some notes on the hotels I stayed when I was in Antique and Iloilo
My second visit to the province of Antique was another hurried trip. Blame it on my schedule but for this second time, I was targeting specific sites related to heritage churches, chapels and ruins of which the province, have some interesting examples.
The name was a bit catchy and curious for me but it basically means turning over in Pangalatok, probably referring to its cooking style of sauteing on a hot oil on a wok.
One thing that a visitor can readily notice are the many pedicabs and tricycles that ply the usual routes and the design and construction can vary from place to place. San Jose’s and surrounding municipalities like Hamtic, have their own versions.
If its walls could talk, it would have told us countless stories and memories and gossips of what was once the opulent center of the ever loyal city of Manila.
Intramuros. Within the walls.
Declared as a National Historical Landmark by the National Historical Institute in 2007, a quick scan of the town center already reveals an astonishing number of early 20th century domestic architecture and other structures that give its provincial atmosphere a unique flavour.
My brown e-passport has finally arrived! Now, where to travel next?
I’m back again in Bangui’s windfarm, for the 4th time, to gawk, to feel the wind, to just see this man made wonder dominating the natural landscape.
It’s white and slimy, its elongated form, worm like, makes others squirm but dip it in spicy vinegar and its one hell of a tasty (raw) fare! Better than oysters.
Visiting Kalibo’s Bakhawan Eco Park was one of the best places that I’ve visited during this trip. Walking along its elevated bamboo walkway amidst lush mangroves and to the sound of birds and the distant waves of the sea was just calming. For one who is Manila based, it was a very welcome respite from the concrete environment and pollution.
As the name suggests, its an apartelle and the ground and second floors are actually inhabited. Room at the third floor on the other hand are still available and are being rented out per day.
After having seen so much cooked mud crabs, shrimps, fish and grilled chicken used as decor during the Ati-ati Festival in Ibajay, both procession and the street dancing, I was craving for seafood!
