Asia » Philippines » Quezon » Lucban February 15th 2012

Pahiyas It's a Filipino word for "decor". And in Lucban Quezon, this is a very important event that people are looking forward to. Lucky me I had the chance to witness this event last May 15, 2009. I've always heard stories about the Pahiyas festival and how grand the celebration is but only until 2009 did I experienced this event. Tropang PG traveled to Lucena on the dawn of May 15. It was just a 3-hour drive fromPasay. Upon reaching the Lucena Grand Terminal, we boarded a jeep going to Lucban. With all our backpacks, everyone is excited to witness the decorations along the streets. As soon as we reached the place, we looked for a nearby restaurant where we can have our breakfast. We tried the lucban longanisa – quite good but nothing special ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Sagada February 15th 2012

Sagada is a place I've always heard from people but I never had the chance to go until the 1st of August 2009. Together with my travel buddies (PGs), we decided to spend a weekend in the mountain province to visit the place -- somewhere close to nature. (When my father asked me where am I going, I told him, mamumundok. And that was literal.) The weather wasn't so good during that time and the AH1N1 virus has already spread. But this did not hinder us from pushing with the initial plan. And so on the night of July 31, we slept in the bus bound to Baguio. There were 10 of us – Lala, Kath, Hannah, Yats, Chris ang me (known as PGs), Emmy (my college friend), Aris (Kath’s friend) and Jo and Fran (Lala’s ... read more

Puerto Princesa, Palawan 11.26.2009. Time to fly again! Medyo months in the making ang trip na ito since we availed of the cebupac promo around march 2009. The fare was so cheap – PhP 1,500++ (you have to check cebupac promos! cheapest fare rates talaga!) We reserved our accommodation and travel tours in De Loro Inn – 5-minute drive from the airport. I highly recommend this to all of you who would be visiting Puerto Princesa for two reasons: (1) cheap rate for accommodation and travel fees, for only PhP 4,600 (group of seven) we already have 5D 4N accommodation, free breakfast and lunch, Honda bay, Underground river and city tour inclusive! and (2) the owner and staff are soooo friendly. We arrived at the PPS airport by 5pm. Staffs from De Loro Inn are waiting ... read more
