    In going to Boracay, one alternative cheap fare tips would i suggest. Indeed, planes would be more expensive going back route to Cebu bound from Caticlan airport. But, just an experienced, we prefer van for hire going to Ilo-ilo City then boat to Cebu rather than booked an aircraft. We arrived at Ilo-ilo port around 5:30pm. while waiting on board,...

  • Ambulant Vendor of Sweet Delicacy

    Arevalo Local Customs

    While we were at Tatoy's Manokan, a man peeping inside caught my attention. I wondered what he was carrying dangling on both ends of a bamboo stick. It was a cluster of cut bamboo stems covered by dried banana leaves. Then, I saw a woman approach the peddler; she bought some and eagerly opened one. I learned that it was a popular Ilonggo sweet...

    Mandurriao Restaurants

    The Moon Cafe' is a head turner. I couldn't help but notice it the first time we went to SM City Iloilo. The queue of waiting diners was very long so I thought their coffee must be good. After our dinner, we went to Moon Cafe'. We were already inside when we noticed that there wasn't any customer drinking coffee; they were having meals. Then, I saw...

  • Need SD Cards?

    Mandurriao Shopping

    Camera Haus is a well known camera and imaging specialty store. We were so happy to find a branch in SM City Iloilo. Hubby ran out of SD cards; he underestimated the number of shots that he would take at the Dinagyang festival. We already went to the Atrium which was the nearest mall to the Dinagyang Judging Area #2, but they didn't have stock. We...
