A Filipino Canadian's Cultural Adventure | See My Philippines

GUEST POST – My Philippine Adventure Part 1

My Philippines Adventure Part 1

The following is a Guest Post from none other than my dad. This is part 1 of 4. Enter Randy:

 

Jesse, on my right, lives in Carmencita, a barangay of Floridablanca in Pampanga province in Luzon with his wife and two children. Jimmy, his brother, lives about an hour away in Batiawan, a small barangay in the Zambales Mountains …

ISLAND TOURS – El Nido

El Nido Island Hoping Tours Palawan

 

One of the main attractions when visiting El Nido is island hoping around one of the 45 islands and inlets. The crystal clear waters and sea life are a great place for diving and snorkeling.

On our second day in town, we met a wonderful couple from Montreal who were staying in the cottage next to us. They recommended …

EL NIDO GARDEN BEACH RESORT – El Nido

El Nido Garden Beach Resort Palawan

 

If you have a few extra dollars to spend, or you’re travelling with a buddy that doesn’t mind splitting the cost… stay a few nights at the El Nido Garden Beach Resort.

Yes, this is different from the El Nido Beach Hotel. Funny enough, they’re almost right next to each other as well.…

FIESTA 2010 – El Nido

El Nido Fiesta Palawan Philippines

 

As a bonus to our trip to Palawan, we got to see the El Nido fiesta. It just so happened to be the day we got there. It was my first fiesta experience.

Each town or city has its own fiesta. They’re never at the same time, so there is pretty much guaranteed a fiesta going on somewhere …

EL NIDO BEACH HOTEL – El Nido

El Nido Beach Hotel Palawan

 

After a 6-hour, bumpy, long drive through the night, we finally made it into El Nido. It was about 11:30pm when got into town and we had no hotel reservations. We hadn’t even done any research about what our options where.…

GREENBELT MALL – Makati City

Greenbelt Mall Makati City

 

Normally, I would say a mall is a mall.

Greenbelt Mall in Makati City, however, is no ordinary mall.

Sure, it has all the usual stores and restaurants ranging from medium to high quality. It has the mall rats taking advantage of the air conditioning and getting out of the mid day heat. It has people spending money …

AIM HOTEL – Makati City

AIM Conference Center Hotel Makati

 

In the search for a nice hotel, the Lonely Planet Guide Book suggested the AIM Conference Center Hotel in Makati. The hotel was decently priced, but most importantly it was very close to Greenbelt Mall and Glorietta Mall.

The hotel is attached to the Asian Institute of Management. There are many different conference and meeting rooms, which makes …

EAGLE POINT RESORT – Mabini

Eagle Point Resort Anilao Mabini Batangas

 

At the end of my first trip to the Philippines, I thought it would be a good idea to treat myself to some serious relaxation. The plan was to lay around in the sun, drink beer and basically do absolutely nothing for a few days. Luckily, I found the Eagle Point Resort in Anilao, Mabini, Batangas, Philippines.

There …

PALAISDAAN RESTAURANT – Tayabas City

Palaisdaan Restaurant Quezon Province

 

To get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, take a quick drive from Lucena City to the original Palaisdaan Restaurant. Its about 16km and 3 hour drive, but well worth it.

Palaisdaan, meaning fishpond, is exactly what you get.  Dine on the floating nipa huts. Watch the coy fish in the pond beneath you, and listen …

TORRE VENEZIA HOTEL- Quezon City

Torre Venezia Quezon City Manila Philippines

 

I stayed at the Torre Venezia Hotel for two nights. It was the first time stayed overnight in Metro Manila. We chose to stay in Quezon City because it was close to visit relatives and is only about a 15-minute drive to either Gateway Mall or SM North EDSA.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite. It wasn’t anything …
