Early dinner at Apag Marangle, Pampanga

Our two-day sun and sand getaway at Nagsasa Cove in Zambales was indeed so refreshing. Before we left the jump-off point we ate our brunch then we set off for a long drive going back to Manila. When we were along Gapan Road, everyone was talking about snack. We searched for dining options somewhere in Pampanga which is known for its sophisticated culinary work and exotic dish. We saw one restaurant but did not seem very interesting so we moved on. By a stroke of luck, we stumbled upon this humble restaurant Apag Marangle which was beside the main highway in Sta. Barbara, Bacolor, Pampanga.

Aniao Islets and Baler Lighthouse: Part IV of our Baler Trip

I got out of bed so early to capture the sunrise, but as I looked at the sky, imminent downpour was on its way. It was an overcast morning and to my dismay, I still have no sunrise photo of Baler for our second day. But it did not dampen my excitement. Rain or shine, this day is a wonderful day to be happy and we have have to go on with our Baler Adventure.

Nipa Resto Grill, San Fernando, La Union

Our refreshing vacation in Ilocos Province would not be complete without tasting their famous delicacies. Unfortunately, arriving late at night at Normi2′s Beachfront Resort in San Juan, La Union (being the last place to visit in our North Luzon trip) and an early check-out the following day deprived us of eating food something authentic to this town.

And so by lunch, we made sure we could find interesting dining place to eat.
