Before this visit to Guimaras, I didn’t realize that windmills could be so fascinating. You see, I’ve never seen them up close. It’s either only in pictures or from afar. The San Lorenzo Windmills of Guimaras was my first close encounter (literally) and it was surprising how I ended up being in awe of the structures.
It feels like ages since I last posted, when it was actually just less than a week ago. But I’ve been away traipsing in the mountains and exploring caverns up north, and what could have been a better excuse, right? But I’m picking things up with this post, which will cover when we went on that day trip to the island province of Guimaras.
Early morning tomorrow, I’ll be off on another adventure, this time up north, but I am putting up this quick update before I actually get started on packing. (Hah.) Packing three attractions in this one post, the Miag-ao Church, the Molo Mansion, and the Jaro Cathedral, all in Iloilo.
October has come and gone. Another month more and it’ll be time for feasting and binge-ing on all those Christmas treats. Part of me looks forward to how the spread would look like, although I dread potential difficulties in fitting into my work uniform, haha! But, let’s not worry about that yet, shall we? For the month of October, I’m bringing you to four places to eat in Baguio City and La Trinidad.
Weeks before our scheduled trip to Iloilo City, we were looking for the places to visit while there, and many searches resulted to “Stairway to Heaven” mentions. Curiosity got the best of us, so on one free morning, we decided to include it in our day tour itinerary. The Stairway to Heaven is actually found at the Garin Farm, just outside of Iloilo City.
I bet by this time, most people have already gone on vacation for All Saints’ and Souls’ Day. Just here to drop a quick post about my last few hours at the beautiful Islas de Gigantes, featuring an island that was not originally in our itinerary, but since we were passing it on our way back to the mainland, we just had to stop: it’s the Buenavista Island.
Whenever I do my daily commute to and from work, I am usually engrossed watching or reading something on my phone, I am barely aware of what’s happening. Well, except for lifting my head from time to time to check where I am, and making mental calculations how many more minutes I’d need to be on the road before I make it on time for work. So I was not aware at first about the existence of this restobar at Km. 5. It wasn’t until several months ago that I heard of it, and just a couple of months ago that I finally got to personally check it out. It’s called The LOFT Restobar.
