The third island we saw during the Mindoro island hopping tour is one of the largest islands, Ilin. Abundant with shells and coral reefs, the villagers in the islands are mostly shell divers and fishermen. One of the attractions in the island is the Cansubong Cave Resort, which has a pathway of limestone rocks that leads to Cansubong Cave, hand built and developed by former San Jose Mayor Javarata. Aside from Cansubong Cave, it is known that there are also other ancient burial caves of early Chinese traders.

Baguio | Carlo's Pizza


 


Spaghetti at Carlo's Pizza
Baguio City

It was the last Sunday, our second day during our trip, of January this year when I went to  Baguio for the first time. We bought tickets going back to Manila to reserve our seats and less hassle. It was drizzling when we decided to take our lunch at around 1:00 pm.  We went to SM Mall and decided to try Carlo's Pizza just near to where there is a view of  Baguio City. I am quite sad because most probably my planned itinerary would not be followed but I immediately recovered as I refocused on the food served to us. Haha

Baguio | Baguio Cathedral, Laperal White House and Melvin Jones Grand Stand

 

Before going to Burnham Park, we passed through the infamous Laperal White House in Baguio,  made a wish because it is my first time at the Baguio Cathedral, and tried to take a jump shot photo at the Melvin Jones Grand Stand but failed!

Laperal White House in Baguio


This old laperal white house in Baguio is rumored to be haunted according to our taxi driver. So I went down from the taxi and took a shot. Located at Leonard Wood Road, the place was built in 1920s and owned by the Laperal Family, one of the oldest clan in Baguio, 'til the family got brutally murdered during the height of World War II or Japanese occupation in the Philippines. What do you think? It looks normal here but creepy in real life. I swear.

Parish of St. James the Great | Alabang, Metro Manila

Parish of St. James the Great | Metro Manila

Parish of St. James the Great can be found inside Ayala Alabang Village, Muntinlupa City. It was constructed way back 1991 until it is fully built in 1993.  Despite its enormous size, it didn’t take away that solemn feel inside the church and, of course, I didn’t miss to pray and make a wish, as what I always do whenever I visit a church for the first time.
