If there’s one thing that I like when I’m in the province, it’s eating the local food. And, based on previous trips up north, one of the things I look forward to is seafood, especially if the province is by the water (case in point: Batanes). However, the ironic thing here is, when we asked… Read More The Ilocos Journals – Foodtrip: Cafe Leona @ Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Once in Vigan, it’s pretty easy to get around – by foot, by car, by jeep, etc. However, if you want to go around a little differently, then you can hire a kalesa, or a horse-drawn carriage, for about a hundred bucks per hour.

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I would be posting a roadtrip the hubby and I took recently to the north of the Philippines. I will be writing a series of posts regarding the places we visited and, of course, try my best to post pictures 🙂 And so, the roadtrip started out… Read More The Ilocos Journals – The Santa Maria Church
I am not perfect. Not that I’m saying anyone is haha Each and every time I go some of my older posts, there is always something that catches my attention with how I’ve written it – wrong punctuation mark, verb tenses, heck even spelling! Since I often just publish my articles right after writing them,… Read More Launching my version of grammar police pics!
