Back to the Past: Vigan Adventures

The day started @Apo Idon Resort. We decided to wake up a bit early to chill at the shore and plus, to prepare a surprise for a friend that really wanted to experience flying a kite by the beach.

We left Apo Idon Resorts at around 9am after breakfast to start our tour to Vigan. The way from Laoag to Pagudpod to Vigan would take you hours on the road. From Pagudpod to Vigan, it took us 2.5 hours or so.

When we arrived at Vigan, there's one street that still has old houses and infrastructures that would really make you feel like you went back in time. Even fastfoods and other establishments had a theme of old infrastructures which i think was a brilliant idea.

The tour was really exhausting, plus we have to go back to Laoag for our flight back to Manila that same day. Do not forget to stop by the public market at Laoag to buy chicacorn, bagnet and vigan longganisa (my favorite!)

Exploring Pagudpod

Second day started @La Playa Tropical Resort you can check the post here.

infinity pool

after breakfast, were off to Pagudpod=)

First stop is a light house in Ilocos Norte.The Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse, is a cultural heritage structure in Burgos established during the Spanish Colonial times.

next stop: the famous Bangui Mills. I've always wanted to go here and take pictures! Your Ilocos trip would'nt be complete with the wind mills.

We had lunch at Blue Lagoon, our driver brought us to a nearby low priced eating place where drivers and backpackers eat. This is where we were scheduled to go swimming at the beach. (at long last!) Unfortunately, since we were running out of time and we still have visit other places, we just took some pictures and left.

Fish that we ordered

Last stop for the day is the Kaibigan Falls, a famouns tourist destination. If you want to see the falls, prepare to hike. It was like a 45 minute or more hike from the place we parked the van.
I cant believe it. I was wearing a dress! I didnt know this trip involves hiking and obviously, I wasnt prepared.

The view was nice, no doubt about that. But too bad we only stayed there for 30 minutes cause its already nightfall and they dont have lights so we have to hurry back to the van.

the day ended sa APO Beach Resort, you can check their website here. Unfortunately their pool was still under construction at that time.We went swimming at the beach for a few minutes but the waves were too strong so we just sat at the sand, and they dont have lights at the beachfront

After checking out the beach, we decided to end the day because we were so tired and sleepy plus we also have to prepare for our trip tomorrow to Vigan.

if they fall in loveÜ

There will be no ordinary days for you
If there is someone who cares like i do

You have no reason to be sad anymore
I`m always ready with a smile
With just one glimpse of you

You don`t have to search no more
Cause i am someone who will love you for sure so..

If we fall in love
Maybe we`ll sing this song as one

If we fall in love
We can write a better song than this

If we fall in love
We will have this melody in our heads

If we fall in love
Anywhere with you would be a better place..

You can watch sad movies in a diffirent light
So i`ll be there beside you
Hugging you oh so tight
(oh so tight)

Your hands will never feel so cold and empty again
Coz i will keep on holding on and won`t let go
(never let you go)

You don`t have to search no more

Cause i am someone who will love you for sure so..

bat nga ba masarap uminom? at malasing? hindi lang dahil sa nakakalimutan mo ang problema kasi umiinom din naman pag may celebrations. Para sakin kasi, masarap ang kwentuhan, tawanan, kantahan, sayawan at bonding over a bucket of beer.ahehe

speaking of kwentuhan, kadalasan ang usapang lasing=usapang love.

ligaw tingin

sana tayo FOREVER

third party

mabuti pa mamatay na lang ako pag wala ka   

mahal kita pero mahal mo sya

hindi tayo bagay

would you be my number 2?

malamig ang lovelife

mahal kita kahit dalawa pa kami.(baliw)

pero anu pa man ang istorya mo, masarap pa din talaga uminom. Cheers!
