When we speak of Baler, surfing initially comes to one’s mind. Right?

It has unspoiled waterfalls, dramatic rock formations, creamy white sand, and buffeting waves… surely Baler is worth a place to explore!

Friday Night at Mexicali, Glorietta 2

In our 2015 Volleyball tournament, the Blue team defeated the Violet team for second place (which was US. Huhuhu). Shiela, being one of the star players of the Blue team was teased by my teammates, Joyce, Arriane, and Rose for a treat. It was so early to celebrate for they have to beat the White team in the championship. But surprisingly, she did. I was told by Joyce, it wasn’t the winning, but the friendship. I was deeply touched for I was included and was thanking in advance.

And now, we will glut our appetites at Charaptor Charcoal Barbecue Bar, the Barbecue-All-U-Can restaurant situated at Kamagong Street corner Aranga Street, San Antonio Village, Makati City.
