Where are we off to?
After 48 years of friendship, finally, Honey brought all of us to her hometown-- Naval.
Naval is the capital municipality of Biliran. And Biliran is located north of Leyte.
First order of the day upon reaching Honey's place...
|Individual photo op with Honey's OML!|
One of the best tasting liempo I've tried. And I'm saying this not because Honey's my friend.
FOOD and ROCKS.
Honey's dad is a food enthusiast and a certified coffee-lover. He finds joy in experimenting a new recipe.
Hunger obviously has no room in their place.
Despite our short stay, I think I gained a few pounds from all the eating. Haha.
|Naval's master chef!|
|Was this the Farmer's sandwich? Don't be deceived. It's really ginormous in actual.|
|Binging on Selecta ice cream!|
|Andrei on emo mode. lol.|
We had the place all to ourselves. Behind those huge boulders is a tiny natural pool-- actually,
it was more like a whirlpool because we were up against strong currents.
The climb was a bit slippery but very manageable.
|While a few were already enjoying the natural pool, my husband and I opted to 'document' this scenic spot.|
How fitting, isn't it?
It was my first time to experience a hot spring. Most of the springs I've been to are cold springs.
How's my first time?
Well, we had some unexpected guests (and I'm not referring to the paranormal kind)
|A herd of carabaos (water buffalo) which camouflaged with the rocks|
I wouldn't have realized that those were carabaos, had they not moved
their heads. I was about to dip my feet in the water. Haha.
The water was not only hot, but literally boiling hot that we can even see the smoke emitted.
|This was the start of my love-hate relationship with the rocks.|
En route to our next stop, we passed by these beautiful sceneries.
Next stop: Tinago Falls.
Why Tinago? Because you can't see the entirety of its beauty unless you climb massive blocks of rocks.
My (challenging) encounter with rocks Part Two.
|One brave (& crazy) soul. Kids please do not follow.|
|My dearest MALA|
|Finally, we have the falls to ourselves!|
|Obviously, enjoying the ride.|
Incidentally, our trip to Naval had two birthday celebrants on board: Andrei (Oct. 29) and Jerome (Oct. 30). Notice their improvised birthday candles? Hehe.
Next post: Higatangan Island.
