Samar Trip

My first business trip ever. Yay!

Posted by Picasa

Alam ko mas mukhang bakasyon, but can I help it if the place was utterly beautiful?

Places/Things I saw/visited:
  • San Juanico Bridge - So excited about this kasi since bata pa tinuturo na sa School.
  • Limestone formations in Marabut - Sa tabi-tabi lang pero ang ganda!
  • BFAR center in Samar - They culture abalone, king crabs, and lapu-lapu there.
  • Surf Camp - The Aboitiz-owned resort was stunning.
  • Endless beaches.
  • McArthur landing site (ano ba tawag dito?)
  • Imelda's house - We didn't stop by to visit though so glimpse lang nito.
Yummy stuff I ate:
  • Kilawin na tanigue - Kakaiba kilawin dun may gata...yummm...
  • Ormoc pineapples - Really small and didn't look good but they were really sweet and hindi makati sa dila.
  • Moron - Hindi yung tao. Yung suman na may tsokolate ang kalahati.
  • Sumang gabi - I don't know what it's called but it's the best suman ever. May nuts and butter and ewan ko pa.
Other things I enjoyed:
  • The swimming dog
  • The fisher folk - Grabe best best bunch of people to travel with. Mabilis mag work and all so friendly, genuine, hardworking and with a good life story to tell.
  • Tuba - Sipped just a little. It was surprisingly good...sweet. Fresh from harvest kasi daw.
  • Taking pictures - Nakaka-addik pala mag kuha ng pictures pag super ganda ng tanawin!
