palawan, again…

there is a saying among Palaweños that once you have come to their place you will come back for some ‘unknown’ reasons, they call it the ‘balik-balik’. wel, for a place like Palawan, who would never wanted to come back di ba?

so again, here’s my second trip to Palawan, particulary at Puerto Princesa City. the last time, i enjoyed the nature, this time i enjoyed the people.

i met Puerto Princesa’s Mayor Hagedorn, and infairnes to him, he welcomes visitors with warmth.this was during the socials night at the a&a hotel.

me, ate chona, and mayor

i also got the chance to have a picture with ms love añover of GMA7’s Unang Hirit and HappyLandia, who happens to be a tourist, like us,  dat tym.

ate chona, love, me, and mel

i also enjoyed a beautiful cultural performances presented by the beautiful people of Palawan.

moreover, i met this young farmer of quezon, palawan during the aerobic rice conference, who is, i may say, very pretty and nice.

i tried the kilawen or sashimi version of Kalui’s resto, which is very very delicious.

and tried a baby crocodile meat at Kinabuchs bar and grill. a little spicy, but perfectly done.

wat i really really wont forget was our visit to the Iwahig Prison and Penal Camp, where i got my INMATE/MEDUIM shirt, yeah i got one. thanks to some ilocano prisoners who were very glad to know that i am an ilocano too. hehe. unfortunately, i didnt have enough courage to ask wats their case, you know, it myt offend them.

entrance

i asked the inmates if can take a picture with them, but they refused. since baka daw makilala sila ng mga tao sa labas. however i can take pictures of them naman daw as long as they will not be recognized.

inmates going to their celdas

inside the prison camp is a resort wherein a flowing water is set to entice the visitors to dip.

a pool in the prison camp

unfortunately, i was not instructed to bring clothes for swimming that’s why me and some friends ended picturetaking nalang.

so there you have it. again, my palawan’s new experiences. taking home with me is a rainmaker (natives of Palawan created this believing that it can call rain to fall, and yes if you flip it, it sounds like a pouring rain), just in time for the el niño.😉

GodBless everyone!
