    Iloilo-Guimaras Philippines

    For the second time, the weather didn't cooperate while we were in Iloilo. It's not that we're surprised. When we left Manila Friday night, it was raining so hard that a lot of flights were delayed. We can only hope that Iloilo is in a calmer condition. It wasn't.

    We rode the boat going to Guimaras the following morning despite the heavy downpour. Our IT was turning into a disaster, we spent a good amount of time either inside the trike or running towards some roof to keep dry. What saved us from total disappointment is Guimaras' pride and joy ??" MANGOES! Eating Guimaras mangoes (in whatev ...

    Miag-ao A Side Trip From Iloilo

    Of all the must-see attractions in Iloilo, it was Miag-ao that topped the list. After all, it is one of the four baroque churches in the Philippines hailed together as a heritage site. We challenged ourselves to not hire a vehicle for the journey, and opted to go by public transport instead.

    Two terminals served the southern Iloilo route: the Mohon terminal near Molo and the Iloilo Terminal Market near the City Center. As the latter was much closer to where we were staying at, we chose to get our jeepney ride there.

    A terminal it didn't seem to be. It was more a produce market, where bul ...

    BIG Bacolod Iloilo Guimaras Trip

    My BIG trip with Taty and Verjo was one of the most spontaneous trips I ever had. We literally have no itineraries and scheduled plans. We opt to be as spontaneous as possible.

    DAY 1

    The first thing we did when we arrived at Bacolod was eat haha. Chicken inasal in Bacolod is absolutely the best grilled chicken I ever tasted. It's best to eat at the Manokan Country. It is a strip of karinderia styled restos across the parking lot of SM Bacolod. They offer original Chicken inasal Bacolod for only P75.

    We would like to also visit the neighboring provinces of Bacolod City, Iloilo and Gui ...
