My random ramblings about Puerto Galera

Galera sand…not as white and as fine as Boracay’s but carry na…

I know it should be the worst time to blog just about anything pertaining to summer while we are awaiting more and more typhoons to hit our country. this could either make you recapture your best summer escapades a few months ago, or this could piss you big time for making it clear that too much rain is such a bummer – special thanks to habagat for the 3 day rain marathon. im stuck at home due to so much flooding (thus the time to blog.)

summer of 2011 was such a loser for me that i failed to fancy myself w/ a beach trip w/ all the basking in the beach and stuff (excluded was the summer company outing and Cebu’s Summer sunscream event held on the same day as my birthday – sobrang pa konswelo ito for a summer 2011 that has gone into waste). i promised myself that by 2012 i could at least spare a weekend and a 1-day VL exclusively intended for a beach binge. good thing my equally ‘tigang sa beach’ friends readiluy said yes to this plan and we eventually came up w/ Puerto Galera as our destination of choice.

Why Puerto Galera?

Welcome ‘Let-Let and Friends!’

its near the metro. and as they say, its the ‘nearer’ and cheaper version of Boracay. for the Cebuano in me who grew up in the most beautiful white sand beaches of the Visayas (counting in Bohol, Siquijor, Cebu and of course Boracay), i did not set my expectations that high, i would say better stick to our beaches there in the Visayas. no need to spend on airfare just to be in Galera.

getting there by public transpo…

Bus ride w/ mami let and rovi (at the back) – quite comfortable

the 50P environmental fee

nga-nga at the boat ride…

from anywhere in Manila, just drop by Buendia Station and look for Buses that says “Batangas Pier’. this route is quite common and a bit hectic so no worries on the no. of trips and the time these buses leave (15-30 mins interval). bus fare is around 150P and travel time is 2 hours average. tip #1: leave manila as early as 4am so you can reach Galera at around 8-9 AM.

no need to fret where Batangas pier is since the bus will take you right smack the pier (alam mo naman siguro itsura ng isang pier). there are a lot of ticketing offices their for boats plying the Galera route so again no need to worry. boat fare is around 300P. tip #2: you may ask the tticketing agent for the schedule of boats that dock directly at white beach since a few trips often side trip at other areas of Galera w/c takes time rather than the usual 1 hour boat ride.

where we stayed (rather where we left our things):

goofin’ around our room…

we stayed at Mendelluke Suites in white beach Puerto Galera. not as fancy as other hotels bearing the surname ‘suites’ but the basics are there. it has free wifi (very good thing), 2 queen sized beds, a big CR , TV and aircon of course all for 3,500P. tip #4: wifi password is still the same as the hotel name but all letter ‘e’ are changed into ‘3’ (amazing password lol)…

what we did:

cheers to a good night

Party party in Galera!! for a summer beach trip into Galera, it was sad though that my group got quite isolated from the happenings in there since we had our own time w/ Don Jose Cuervosss in the farther, more quiet side of the beach. it was a bit intimate for us that we kinda excluded the Galera flavor in it…meaning no Mindoro sling samplers (w/c i totally forgot), no drag queens and stand up comedy acts along the beach fronts, no fire dances, and no B2B eye witness accounts (oops…rated SPG).

doin the hybrid reggae dance… get up stand up, stand up for your right…;p

reggaethon. Galera is also home to reggae music enthusiasts that their nos. in this beach are quite more compared to otther beaches. be ready to be transported to Jamaica (or the Carribeans) once you opt to enjoy reggae rather than the dance music saturated bars in the white beach.

banana boat ride babey

classic banana boat rides abound Galera. there arent much water sports there except for the usual jetski, snorkeling and island hopping (i cant quite recall if there was a parasailing there). we did the banana boat ride and got really exhausted after all the falling apart but it was fun though.

on sunsets and the AB

majestic sunset. we settled down on the beach front after to await for the sunset. yes galera also has a view of the amazing sunset. tip #5: beach fronts during sunsets tend to be TOO crowded. so if your not so much into crowds, you dont have much of a choice.

‘sudden deep’ (biglang lalim lol)

swimming by the beach isnt as fun as Boracay since the water tend to get deep a few meters from the beach front (basta biglang lalim sya). so if your not a swimmer, better be careful… its also crowded in the shallow waters. quite hard to swim freely.

tshirt kayo jan….

for the shopaholics, a lot of souvenir shops are found in Galera, for 100P one can buy a ‘Puerto Galera’ white sando or thsirt. the usual keychains and coin purse and a whole lot of stuff can be found in these shops. bought myself a pair of board shorts for 100P (kinda looked the original if at a distance lol).

shake shake shake!!!

Galera during summer time is scorching hot! i myself had to rant about it (unlikely of me). fruit shakes and milk shakes were aplenty in Galera (and very delicious too). i devoured quite a number and i specifically liked the melon shake. afternoons were spent chilling w/ milk shakes and burgers, siomais, squid,fish,crab and all other kinds of rolls… for short street foods are teeming around Galera’s beach front (one edge of galera vs. Boracay). i was specifically very happy when i saw a barbequed banana (totally different from a sweet bananaque, basta yung bnibenta sa labas ng skul na may margarine)…. i had too much of it i had to hit the comfort room 2x. lol.

resiliency and nationalism at its finest

henna. i wanted some so i decided to have my henna tattoo (w/ mami let, salamat sa impluwensya lol for 200P. bad thing it smudged 2 hours after due to a very bad experience on our way home.

what we ate:

a feast of chicken, pork bellies and sea foods

simhot!

a lot of mid priced food strips are lined in the beach front of Puerto Galera. i was hoping i’d find a lot of sea foods in the menu but unfortunately most of their offerings consist of chicken, pork bellies and tilapias. it was a bit of a struggle for us to finally find a resto w/ calamares and some salt fish tinola. but heck, when one is hungry, one eats everything…yum2x! tip#6: try to haggle for the price as some restos tend to offer cheaper compared to the others. try also the set menus as they tend to be more cheaper compared to ala carte.

tip #7: must read – leave Puerto Galera w/ the 3PM boat trip so you can still catch the 6PM buses bound for Manila… 7PM onwards will be quite a struggle already as buses going back to Manila become fewer.

tip#8: there are a lot there who offer package tours for otther activities in Galera such as hiking, biking etc. so if you want more than beach escapades, no problem in finding alternative things to do there.

greetings from Puerto Galera!

Bigg’s Diner – Legaspi, Albay

Just a super quick post to assure you guys that I’m still very much alive (as well as this blog). I know it has been months since i last posted an entry related to travelling and I feel terribly guilty about it – Sorry much! work and personal ‘crisis’ has taken much of my energy this past few months.

since 1983? so its 29 years old.

Anyhow, here’s a short review on Bicol’s most celebrated fastfood chain – Bigg’s Diner. this American vintage inspired food chain is located at the Embarcadero mall in Legazpi Albay.

facade

With the fast food concept, most of its menu entry composed of comfort foods from fried chicken meals to healthy salads. it also had club sandwiches made up of meat and fish. one major ‘thumbs up’ factor about Bigg’s is its servings, not like the others, Bigg’s servings were, well, Big (justice served for its name lol). it is big enough for one person to get filled and just enough to be shared for at least 2. for the discriminating taste buds, if one loves American food (and the greasy part of it), then Bigg’s is a must try.

the service crew

the service was also good. the crew members showed genuine Bicolano hospitality. service was also quite fast though their food still has to be cooked/roasted/fried after its ordered.

Bigg’s placemat

price-wise, one has to prepare at least 150P to get a decent meal and a partner drink.

price range

and to complete the Bigg’s dining experience, one has to dine in front of the overwhelming presence of Mayon volcano.

here’s what i ordered (plus extra rice and a glass of lemonade):

their serving of chicken cordon bleu

for my tummy meter: i’d give this an 8 out of 10. i strongly agree that Bigg’s should consider going nationwide.

Choose Philippines (and other enticing songs dedicated to visiting Pinas!)

As i gear up for my upcoming travels (including a regular uwi sa Cebu later this afternoon, the Singapura getaway w/ family on December and the Bicolandia trip next month), i came across these videos specially made to entice foreign and local tourists alike to discover the PHILIPPINES’ hidden wonders that are well worth a visit.

nakaka-indak, napapasayaw ka, and these songs make you CHOOSE the PHILIPPINES and definitely TAKE U TO THE PHILIPPINES, kaya TARA NA BYAHE TAYO!


PILIIN MO ANG PILIPINAS – Angeline Quinto & Vince Bueno [Official MV]


Take U to the Philippines – Apl.De.Ap.

…and the classic…who doesnt know this song or havent heard this in fast crafts and buses during travelling.


WOW Philippines – Biyahe Tayo

Boracay and its ‘knockout’ memories…

Let’s face it, the moment i first set foot in this beautiful (and still an understatement) tiny island, i knew that i have fallen truly,madly and deeply in love with it. i want to make love with Boracay!

i dont know why, the beaches in Bantayan Island, Siquijor and Bohol could actually equal to Boracay’s but there is this something, something that is beyond words why i cant stop falling for this gem.

its been 2 years since my last visit in Boracay and i have been itching to go back this summer of 1012. fingers crossed, sana matuloy. to those buddies and friends whom i have been relentlessly making ‘kulit’ to start planning for the trip, man lets do this, PLEASE!!

so here are some stuff i did in Boracay over the few times i have been there from the very first trip in 2005 with family up to the last one in 2009 with the backstage boys. (warning: photo overload below)

Have that inexplicable feeling of peace and quiet while watching Boracay’s famous sunset.

photographing the setting sun in 2008

muni muni while waiting for that sunset...

A 2005 photo. my very first glimpse of that Boracay sunset

stroll along its 4km stretch fine and polvoron like white sand beach

willie's rock

there are soo many things one can see (intentionally and unintentionally) when strolling in boracay beach front

during off peak and stormy weather, Boracay beach front looks like this (2009 photo)

have a photo op at the iconic Boracay Regency beach resort (epic fail if you havent taken your photo in Boracay Regency the very first time you went to Boracay)

when we were first timers lol

have a Photo op at another ‘icon’ in Boracay – FRIDAY’s

im not really sure if FRIDAY's is till existing now...

have a photo op at the famous sand castles and sand designs (ung may mga kandila sa ilalim). then w/out any hesitation donate 20 PESOS (despite the the presence of a few dollars and hundred pesos in the donation box.

insert in the to do list in boracay : DESTROY sand castles lol. just pay for it first.

watch over pamangkins and other kiddies in the family while relaxing on the beach…

challenge if all boys pamangkin mo...

put the kids to sleep early to ensure the boracay nightlife is not jeopardized.

its inevitable, they will definitely ask you to buy them toys they can play with at the beach

watch other’s back. woot!

enjoy the equally famous Jonah’s shakes while ‘watching other’s backs’

pardon me on the photo, i dont have any other photos of Jonah's shake yet...urg.

just chill while sun bathing and ‘watching other’s backs’

the clear blue boracay skies during summer

konti na lang may tan lines na!

have a 365 degree look around the whole island of Boracay through its highest point and get in touch (literally) with a Bat. thanks to the ATV and the island tour

the ATV oh yeah!

enjoying the view at the island's highest peak

befriending the snob bat.

if your lucky, watch a beach front wedding…

a non-showbiz wedding but i saw toni,mariel and bianca...who could the couple be

on artista paparazzi shots, and stalking them

meet kat de castro, dont ask who among the showbiz pipz i took paparrazi photos with...ang jologs kasi.

Watersports overload…and at dirt cheap price during off peak.

first time jet skier


the banana boat ...the boring banana boat, naks!


the flyfish...ANG LUFEEEETTTT!!!!


the best among all, parasail! idol!


Underwater helmet...little mermaid mode nyahaha!

experience the LIFE in Boracay’s night life

before lambasting one's self in the clubs of Boracay, its a must to check the reggae bars first.


after reggae sessions, chill out naman pa tipsy at hey jude's


the beach front and gentext bean bags (gentext talaga? lol) at cocomangas, the USED to be Cocomangas


this is what you call 'lets morning the night' at guilly's island...


rubbed the elbows of the original 'in' crowd (one major instituition parties during labor day in Boracay)


sa Boracay lang ako naka attend ng FREE and OPEN bar until 5am party. kaya ayan borlogs

beyond anything else, what made the whole Boracay experience well worth it was the people whom i was it. its more memorable and more happier when your w/ people you treasure.

the family that island hops together, gets sea sick together...


the backstage boys w/ their backs being watched


the bestes buddies in the world (where's ivan?)

and yeah i almost forgot the ‘maksaysayang’ Jump Shot

up up and away

The Long and Zigzaging road to (and from) Baler

Laiza’s SMS i recieved 2 hours before our scheduled trip: ‘guys sorry dili ko kakuyog, ingon sila naa daw bagyo and grabe ang lubak sa dalan. sorry kaayo pass lang sa ko.’

anybody who’d receive this kind of message just hours before the trip would go berserk. i had to rely on my quite convincing powers and assure her that there was no storm at all and that the ‘lubak2x na daan’ in Aurora is already history. around 80-90% of the roads leading to Aurora are now concrete. i just had to call her and tell her to pack up fast and we’ll just see each other at the GENESIS Bus Terminal in Cubao, Quezon City. whew! 1 hurdle down.

Off to Baler we go!

all the while i thought this trip is going to be a smooth sailing one. i knew that buses plying the Aurora route doesnt have a 24-hour schedule. they leave Manila the earliest at 12mn, 1am, 2am and the next will be at 430am, 530am and 7am.. since we were on a tight schedule w/ just over the weekend to travel, i planned to take the 12mn bus, early enough for us to have more time to explore Baler in the morning. Much to our dismay, when we arrived at the bus station at around 10pm, the 12MN and the 1AM buses were already full. that left us w/ the 2AM bus as our only choice.

the delux Genesis Bus photo credits: http://biyaherongbarat.wordpress.com/

the catch: there are 2 kinds of buses that ply the route, all under Genesis Bus. its their regular bus (aircon deluxe) w/c is priced at P418. w/ a couple of stop overs, the total travel time is 6 hours. the second one, is the Joy Bus, their executive bus w/c is priced at 650P with no stop overs. travel time is 4 and a half hours. obviously besides the price and the total travel time, one of the major (for me) difference is its comfort. deluxe bus is just like the usual aircon buses that i ride for an hour or less. i was quite unsure if i can handle that kind of ride for 6 hours. too bad the 2am bus is the delux bus. well, for the budget conscious in us, we were left with no choice.

A dam in Nueva VIzcaya

we left Manila at around 145am since the bus was already full, we were still traversing EDSA when i got into deep slumber already. i wasnt really sure how many stop overs we had but the last stop over was in Pantabangan Nueva Ecija (remember the great Pantabangan Dam in our HEKASI class?), the last town before we set foot a part of Nueva Vizcaya and finally the province of Aurora. and yeah before i forget, the zigzag part, roughly an hour, was actually the time when we crossed the Sierra Madre mountain range. Carlo and Rovi got sea sick and had a difficult time sleeping while were driving along the zigzag road. me on the other hand didnt have the slightest recall about it because i was totally asleep, the movement inside the bus didnt wake me at all. we finally arrived in Baler at around 830 AM, my back hurt like hell even if i was asleep most of the time.

our last stop over in Pantabangan Town

The Return Trip

if the ‘to’ trip was a bit of a struggle and adventure, the ‘from’ was the exact opposite. it was seamless, no hassle, no backpains and it felt like we were on a business class flight! mind you we had a lady stewardess instead of a male ‘kundoktor’ (add also the lavatory)! we decided that for the return trip, we must gather enough rest and sleep since we came from a strenuous surfing activity. we decided to take the Joy Bus which only has one trip a day that leaves Baler at 3PM and travels none stop to Manila.

i was only able to sleep when we were already in Cabanatuan so i was able to experience the zigzag road they were raving about. and indeed it was quite a crazy nausea-inducing ride with bags dancing left to right and back. we arrived in Manila at around 7PM and finally touched base in Cubao terminal by around 730PM.

with its perks, olats si cebu pac and airphil express....lol

complimentary snacks composed of a cup cake, biscuit and mineral water...not bad!

complimentary morning kit consist of a toothbrush,toothpaste, a soap and a comb

the P650 worth executive couch...

spell comfort... 3 in a row seats

Tips and Figures:

Be Early. usually weekends gather many passengers travelling to Baler and Casiguran so chances are you might have little possibility of getting into the 12mn trip. i asked one traveller who got in the said trip and she told me she was already there as early as 8pm.

For Manila -Cabanatuan – Baler Trip

there are so many buses plying the Manila – Cabanatuan route so there is no problem in choosing what bus to take. e.g. ES Transport, Genesis, Baliaug Transit, 5 star and other local buses.

Cabanatuan to Baler also has a lot of local buses with dynamic schedules. Vans / Vhires are also available.

Baler to Manila

Now here’s the tricky part, when i asked around Cabanatuan if there are frequent trips coming from Baler, i got quite a number of different answers. one said the latest direct trip from Baler to Cabanatuan was at 3pm and another one told me that its 7pm. just to be safe. i strongly suggest you take the 3PM sole direct trip from baler to Manila to avoid any hassle especially if your going to work the next day. what we did was when we arrived, we immediately went to the ‘Genesis garahe’ and looked for the dispatcher and convinced him to reserve us our seats for our return trip. we even offerd him to pay in advance so that we can choose our seats. luckily he agreed. actually when we got into the garahe there were already 3 passengers who reserved their own seats for the 3pm trip.

drink Bonamin. if you get sea sickness when travelling, trust me, the zigzag road was like a theme park ride

Riding (and loving) the waves of BALER – part 1 of my Baler adventure series

Its not how many times you fall that matters, its how many times you rise up from that fall that counts. – a ‘gasgas’ cliche we always hear yet its completely applicable to the world of surfing.

insert background music: miley's the climb...i can almost see it...

last weekend i was again at the peak of my ‘beach bum’ element as I and 3 of my college and travel buddies Rovi, Laiza and Carlo went on to fulfill another adventure in our bucket list – surfing in Baler.

w/ surfer buddies ...naks!

Baler is an emerging destination for local and foreign tourists. by word of mouth it has slowly paved its way in the list of must see places in the country, surfing is a huge contributor to that. add also the historical value of this town for being the birthplace of the country’s only commonwealth president, Pres. Manuel Quezon and home to the political clan of the Angara’s (they deserve the credit for promoting Baler and the province as a whole). it probably also has the biggest number of surfing community in the country numbering to about 30 to 50 surfers. they are also the ones who tutor surfing enthusiasts who frequent the place.

the waves of Baler

because of the intense excitement to finally hop on that surf board and ‘do’ the huge waves of Sabang Cove, i might have to apologize that i had to forgo the other attractions that this quaint little town (and the province of Aurora in general) offer specifically the waterfalls and the largest balete tree (they say in Asia) in the adjacent town of Maria Aurora. please do refer to Sinjin’s libotero.com for his more in depth feature on Baler. we only had the weekend for this trip so the slight mix up with the itinerary caused us a huge chunk of our time thus the failure to visit the said attractions. for redemption purposes though, i have alloted the second part of this series for the other places in Baler we visited.

many think, including me, that surfing is one heck of an extreme sport. the ‘dare devil’ factor is high and that it sometimes equate itself to either injury or even drowning. it gave me such thought- maybe, just maybe, if there’s one extreme sport i can handle, i guess its surfing. for one, i know how to swim and for two i dont mind drinking liters of sea water. my being a beach bum is nothing if i dread the taste of salty sea water.

the mid afternoon sun coupled with the sound of the crashing medium sized waves in Sabang Beach was a classic hit for us that we wasted no time and hit the beach in our (at least for me) most stylish board shorts. finally my board shorts was used fit to its REAL purpose. lol.

thanks to maui and sons for the board shorts

the training, (actually it was just a briefing) only took 2 mins. for basic surfing there are only 3 steps, the ‘ready’ the ‘position’ and finally the ‘go’ -meaning you have to do the whole balancing act thing which if you master, gives you the right to be ma-angas and covets you with that rightful surfer dude look! when we were done, i was like ‘yun na po ba yun?’ then my trainor, in the name of Arnel told me ‘opo kuya, mas mahirap pa po ang skimboarding kaysa surfing.’ so what happend to the extreme part of it? oh well, better try it first hand. the next thing i knew i was already in knee deep waters but waist deep waves, oh i thought this was easy…

sugdi!

‘maling akala’– perfect!, what i thought was easy and doable was actually the exact opposite of it. it took me 30 mins to even stand at the board. and i withstood it for roughly … 3 steps, and well, i fell off right after.

as they say practice makes perfect. it took me about an hour more to finally look ‘stable’ on top of a board. i pretty much got addicted to it that the whole surfing experience took me 3 hours before i said ‘ok, its a wrap….malufet!!!’ arnel thought me a couple of tricks from walking/balancing on top of the board, to how to u-turn when waves are coming and paddling among others. but he told me that the most important thing in surfing is you must get to know the waves. as a surfer, one must know how to make ‘kilatis’ the waves. unfortunately though this was the hardest part and we werent able to perfect the skill. he said it will take me about at least a day more of intense training to finally get the hang out of it.

see the nag mama-angas photos below….lufet!




it was already around 6pm when we got out of the water to watch the famous Baler sunset. much to our dismay, this place is also a ‘stop over’ of heavy clouds and thunderstorms that we again failed to see the sun bid farewell for the day. we ended up sitting on the beach front, with a bottle of RH and in silence trying to absorb what just happened earlier…or maybe we were starting to feel the body pains already that moving in and around (and even talking) was already a struggle.

rovi is loving my surf board...

laiza 'was' excited until...haha!

post surfing analysis w/ carlo

i got injured in my left ankle by the way…but still…it was one heck of ‘MALUFET’!!!!

tips and figures:

surfng lessons w/ surfboard rental is at 350P per hour

surfing school is located at the beach front of Bay’s Inn

surfing lessons come w/ a FREE bottle of water or softdrinks.

surfing trainors are really a kind bunch, if only i have the extra bucks i would have invited them over a drinking spree after lol.

surfing doesnt necessarily need any requirements, for beginners even if non-swimmers pwede.

skim boaards are also available for rent at 100P per hour but no tutorial

the best time to go to Baler for surfing is of course summertime to make the most out of the summer heat (thus the absence of ocassional rainshowers and thunderstorms w/c i dont like when travelling on a beach destination). BUT the waves are still the same even on none-peak seasons such as August.

you can learn basic surfing in half a day, but if you really wanna LEARN it, save 2 days.

more details of the Baler trip on the second part..coming up next!

Kiltepan and its Sunrise : fly high!

Kiltepan Sunrise - almost

Our third day in Sagada started off way too early at 4 o clock in the morning to catch up on yet again one of Sagada’s most sought after natural scenery : the Sunrise view at Kiltepan peak.

getting ready to ride our jeepney service towards Kiltepan peak

Coming from the other day’s exhausting but really fun adventure, it was all but a challenge for me to wake up that early. the cold weather coupled with the familiar (and provincial) sound of dawn that i always long to hear plus the king size bed and the comforter all to myself made getting out of my bed such a struggle. Good thing Doi was already up on her feet and was all made up when i woke up so it was really ‘jahe’ for my part not to move and prepare for the early morning itinerary.

balot na balot...

roughly at around 430am our tour guide arrived. we wasted no time and drove ourselves all the way up to Kiltepan peak. we were a bit worried though because of the unfavorable weather in the area. we were thinking we might not be able to witness the sunrise since clouds and thick fog might cover the view. 30 minutes after and a vehicle break down, we were already at Kiltepan peak view point…and yes we were right. the view was covered with THICK clouds and fog. and the temperature was very cold and the wind blew on us quite strongly. it was not a mistake that me and Carla brought with us our extra blankets. while awaiting for the fog and the clouds to settle, Tita Myrna started to sing songs of Praise and other Christian songs. it made the whole scanarios of us waiting in silence and in awe more melodramatic. it felt like we were in this some indie film or a docu film about the ifugaos hehe.

James and Tof: typical worried mode, baka lang naman magmoist ang lens

finally after a few minutes of waiting the sun finally rose, giving us a perfect view of what was really in front of us. unfortunately though, he did not show his beauty to us. he hid himself behind the clouds, there were a few times that we almost got a glimpse of him but sadly, the clouds only came too quickly to cover him again.

Just like what any other tourist would do, we wasted no time and took pictures of the still magnificent view and ourselves. Edcel actually did a crazy thing in Kiltepan – he removed his shirt and posed for photos half naked for about an hour! lol! i will leave the whole ‘kwento’ to him on his blog.

may naiinitan...
