Red Curry Sauce Spaghetti

Red Curry Sauce Spaghetti

McCoy’s Pizzeria’s delicious Re Curry Sauce Spaghetti. Don’t miss it in Puerto Princesa City.

I don’t want to sound biased (or why not?) but this pasta is really to die for. Okay, that may sound trite, but I can’t say otherwise. I’m not such a fan of pasta dishes; not even pizza — however, for this one, I’ll gladly make an excuse.

In Puerto Princesa, this is available at McCoy’s Pizzeria located at National Highway, Barangay San Miguel. You can get to the place from anywhere by tricycle, or via shuttle van (if you rented one). And if you’re adventurous enough, you can just take a walk from any point in the center of the city to get there.


Summer Time & The Living is Easy…

Summer Time & The Living is Easy...

Sultry opportunity found along the coast of Berong, Quezon, Palawan.

It’s not summer yet, but… but… but… we’re getting there 🙂 I can’t wait for summer! I badly need it to be summer! Summer is the perfect excuse to look for relaxation. To not have any modicum of care to travel, to not think about deadliest deadlines and other things that give pressure. To just sit by the sea and watch while it gently laps the shore.., summer!

I feel like such a loser today!

It can’t get any better than this. The Gypsy’s Lair’s refreshing pandan iced tea.

I wish that I am at The Gypsy’s Lair tonight just to relax, to cool myself with a tall glass of pandan iced tea, and to be comforted by that mean quesadilla plate, oozing with cheese and whatever’s there to awaken my nerves.

I didn’t do anything much today — just watched tv, and tv, and more tv… and bed, and bed, and more bed. Involuntary muscle contraction, which often hides in the identity of the word “cramps,” can beat the s**t out of me sometimes. To say “Whatta life!” is an understatement.

Juan Tamad was on television too, and I watched it; I’ve been following  it a lot lately because I sincerely like Coco Martin 🙂 In fact, I’m going to collapse if I see him, and I don’t care how cheesy that is or what people (or friends) will say. Same case with Gerard Butler and Hugh Jackman — if I see them in person, I hope I do not fall flat right in front of them.

After Coco’s adventure-telenovela, of course, there’s Ina, Kapatid, Anak. Somebody asked me a few days ago if I have seen it. I don’t remember answering.

For the life of me, I watched it one time but never repeated because I am forever disgusted (no offense meant to others watching it) by the plot of the story: missing children/siblings and it beats me why they sell like street food to anyone.


I just thought… enough of those emo telenovelas. I’ll stick to Goin’ Bulilit.


Hibiscus Garden Inn

Hibiscus Garden Inn

Romantic and easy living at Hibiscus Garden Pension while on vacation in Puerto Princesa City.

Quietly tucked in the interior of Manalo Street in Puerto Princesa City, the Hibiscus Garden Inn presents guests with a lush garden that leads to beautiful room accommodations made of light materials, and a quaint restaurant that serves mostly European dishes.

I’ve been going to the place a lot lately, but two weeks ago was the only time I went with my camera to be able to take photos. I must have taken more than a handful of images however, this is only one of the few I really like. I should go back and take some more.

The pathway in between large pots of plants goes to the restaurant, where I heard, delicious pizzas are served. I’ve never tried because I thought they’re exclusively for the guests, but I was told it’s okay once in a while to hangout.


Art Cafe, El Nido

Art Cafe, El Nido

When in El Nido, don’t forget to pass by the Art Cafe owned by Judith and Tani Distal. The place is awesome and the food is great! On scheduled nights, it has an acoustic band that can entertain guests to the most enjoyable level.

El Nido is 6 hours from the center of Puerto Princesa via shuttle vans or Roro buses. There’ll be a lot of stopovers, but it’s all right when traveling in the daytime. Night time is a different story.


Little Berong Girl

Photo of a little girl in Berong, Quezon, Palawan, Philippines with her umbrella. Berong is a barangay, where most residents are indigenous peoples (IPs) referred to as Pala’wans.

The Pala’wan, also known as Palawano (or Palawan, depending on sub-dialect) or Palawano (only by outsiders), is one of the unique indigenous peoples of Palawan. They are part of the large Manobo-based linguistic groups of southern Philippines. They traditionally hunt using soars and bamboo blowguns. (from

I’m blogging again after taking down the last one also here at  🙂 I’ve actually decided against blogging again, but the photos I have — they’re very inspiring; and I want to showcase the beauty of Puerto Princesa and Palawan.
