Vigan (October 2008)

Where we stayed: 
Grandpa's Inn
1 Bonifacio St. cor. Quirino Blvd, Vigan

Must do:
Calesa ride to different tourists spots around Vigan

Monetary Damage:
I guess less than Php 2,000/pax.

When in Vigan, a must-try is their longganisa. We had our breakfast @ Grandpa's Inn.
Cool artwork of Calle Crisologo @ Grandpa's Inn lobby
More antique stuff at the 2nd floor of the inn.
Meet Cristala-- the horse.

St. Augustine Church
Bantay Belfry-- where the famous Panday (FPJ's version) movie was shot.
The grounds surrounding the belfry was where Diego Silang was said to have fought the Spaniards.
Syquia Mansion of President Elpidio Quirino
Vintage horse carriage at Syquia Mansion
Receiving area for the visitors (Syquia Mansion)
Grand Living Room (Syquia Mansion)
Patio where dances were being held (Syquia Mansion)
Burnay pottery

And of course, one must not definitely miss Calle Crisologo-- the major attraction of Vigan.

Long stretch of Calle Crisologo

It felt like we were taken back to the Spanish era.

Swear, I can hear Sisa shouting and looking for Basilio and Crispin. Lol.

Must complete the whole Vigan feel with an al fresco dining.

Subic (October 2008)

Right after the bar exams, after six months of living a hermit-like life, we just had to go on trips and have fun. First stop: Subic!

Some of our classmates arranged a day-tour to Subic. We left Manila very early in the morning. We hired a private van and the travel time ran for approximately 2-3 hours.

The pack of excited passengers.

Kissing the butete.

Sea Lion show.

Meeting my friend Alexa. Swear that sea lion was a flirty one!

See what I mean! LOL.

If the sea lions are flirty, these monkeys are--- horny! Haha.

Dolphin show.

Would have wanted to get up close & personal with the dolphins but rate is a bit pricey.

This one is in Zoobic Safari already.

See my half-meant smile? I wasn't all too thrilled with the tiger.
No matter how tamed, they can still bite you know!
By the way, would you believe that that tiger is still a baby? Hence, the milk. Yep, still a baby.

I got scared of the camel too! Geeesh. That's why I don't have pics with it.

Tigers are cute only if they don't roar. But that is not what tigers are made for. Hehe.

There goes your Crocs and Lacoste.

I forgot what kind of snake this is, but I'm guessing Albino snake.

Tagaytay-Batangas (October 2008)

One of Jerome's closest friends in college took us to Tagaytay. We had our lunch there. Then we proceeded to Batangas.

Saw a house down the hill.

Taal Lake and Volcano

Damn fog.

Pardon my butt. Just focus on the sweetness. Lol.
