Thanks for sharing all these. It is great to know somebody like you appreciates the simple life in the Philippines. I am a Filipino but I’m now here in Chicago. The photographs you posted make me miss home and the foods. I think these are in central visayas, part of Cebu.
My home is in Roxas City, in Panay Island where the famous Boracay island is found in the province of Aklan. Have you been there? I hope you did not miss the island in your trip’s itinerary.
Hi Jecques. Unfortunately I have not made it to Roxas City yet. Akong higala, kano guy, lives there. Perhaps next trip. I want to see the witches of Capiz fiesta ever since I saw a video of it on youtube.
Ay, Myrna I am hari na kilaw. 🙂 I have kinilaw lato, kinlilaw guso ug kinilaw isda. Lami, lami. Maayo sumsuman. I love it! I even eat it in US.
Hoz, now you tell me! Chicharon! Or should it be tsitsaron? I love tsitsaron, especially the homemade kind. I hear Carcar is the best pero dili tilaw hangtud karon.
Ianne, now it’s time for my confession. Lechon baboy is not one of my favorites. Just cannot develop a taste for it. Do I have to give up my honorary Pinoy status now? Daghan tambok, di ba? However, lechon manok is lami. Oh yeah, and no way I’m gonna’ try Balut. Hahaha. 🙂
it’s sad you don’t fancy lechon, I would have invited you to Talisay City, where you can find the best lechon in the country 🙂 however, as Hoz said, you can give Balut a try, I remember before every time I donate blood for charity purposes, we were given a bottle of San Miguel Beer and Balut to recuperate fast . . .
Myrna, I’m just a pinoy wannabe. 🙂 Some things I really like, example kinilaw. Some I don’t care for too much, example lechon baboy. But I’m trying. If I’m going to eventually live here I must become accustomed to this life. Di ba?
This blog started with my most recent trip to the Philippines, specifically the islands of Cebu and Negros. I will share with you the splendors and wonders of Republika ng Piliapinas (RP) as well as the love for and from her many peoples. I hope you will enjoy my adventures and misadventures as well as the fotos that I upload here. Perhaps you will also be motivated to visit and enjoy the 7,107 islands that are the RP.
By the way, that foto at the top of the page is of a beach in Santa Fe, Bantayan on the island of Cebu. Beautiful, is it not?
