So yesterday we met at New York Barbeque which is located at #29 Jalandoni St. Iloilo City (in front of Centennial Hotel). Tim and I arrived 30 minutes before the appointed time of the meeting so we decided to try out their chicken barbeque and we were not disappointed.
We went on a day trip to Guimaras yesterday. I have been to Guimaras countless times but this was the first time that I was able to go island hopping, snorkeling and see/touch turtles in Lawi! We went to Ave Maria Island, it had a white sand beach though not as white as Boracay’s but much better because it was quieter and ideal for relaxation. After a couple of hours of lounging at the beach we went back to Raymen’s Beach Resort.
We helped Google map the voting precincts here in Iloilo today! Iloilo Bloggers and friends went to Netopia to help Google map the precincts here in the Iloilo province in preparation for the May 10 elections.
Oton is celebrating its 438nd Foundation Day this week through the Katagman Festival. The Katagman festival was originally names Ogtonganon festival which is derived from the name of the locals -”Ogtongs.”
Here I go again. Last weekend I went back to Papang’s hometown once again for a family gathering. Me and my cousins went to the beach – again, of course. Since childhood, I have never passed a chance to go to the beach.
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.
Papang used to come to Villa Igang every summer. The place was very peaceful man gihapon because we went there on a Friday before the surge of Holy Week bakasyonitas. It was a refreshing experience.
Pintados de Pasi is a commemorative festival when the municipality of Passi became the first component city in the Province of Iloilo with the signing of R.A. 8469 by President Fidel V. Ramos. It has a touch of legend and history showing the way of life, work, rites and celebrations of the early Panayanon. Pintados because of the tattoos that covered their body.
I just love going to my father’s hometown – San Jose de Buenavista, Antique so here are more photos that I took while I was there last week. Enjoy!
Antique is my father’s hometown. As a child, I have always looked forward to our vacations there. Not only do I enjoy spending time with my relatives especially my cousins but I also love the beach! In my opinion, Antique has the best beaches.
Here are my long overdue Dinagyang photos. We had fun watching the different tribe performances. Dinagyang really is an Ilonggo pride. Tim and I will surely dagyang again next year!
