0 Dicasalarin Cove is one of the hidden wonders of Baler. It’s the most beautiful cove I’ve seen so far. Here you can find the Dicasalarin Beach, Artists’ Village and the Baler Lighthouse.

Gerarda’s Restaurant

They have roast pork belly marinated in spices, spring onions, chili, tomatoes, ginger, salt, pepper, sugar, mayonnaise and calamansi. […]

D’ Banquet

0A great and affordable place to eat in Tagaytay is D’ Banquet. My favorite? The squid fries with mayo dip. Strips of squid embraced in a delicious coating and fried to perfection. Yummy! Another wonderful discovery here is their version of the lumpiang ubod. Three smaller pieces of the usual Filipino treat but this time […]

Nuvali Lake: Fish Feeding, Water Taxi Ride, Biking

There are just so many activities to experience and some of them are just within the lake are. Fish feeding, water taxi ride and biking. The […]
