SOLIBAO is a home-grown Filipino restaurant established in 1972, now with 6 branches around Baguio and still counting. Its name was inspired by the drums used by the Igorot in the Cordilleras. It is best known for its yummy Filipino recipes like Pancit Palabok, Kare-Kare and Puto Bumbong.
We tried the Solibao which is the in-house resto of the Heritage Mansion. It was my first time to tried Solibao, and here is our experience:

One of the top surfing destinations in the country today is Puraran in Baras, Catanduanes.
It is home to “The Majestic Wave” that top surfers from all over the world visit during the surfing season, July to October.

Paragliding in Manila started 4 years ago (with only 20 paragliders to date in Manila). It started to become popular when the Main Fly Site in Carmona, Cavite was discovered by Jonathan Thayamora, a 2nd- generation paraglider. The other paragliding flysite is in Saranggani.
Recently, Buko Raymundo - an Airsport Specialist, offered tandem Paragliding in the Carmona flysite to those who want to experience the Paragliding High in Manila :)
2013 is definitely the year of Paragliding in Manila :) Check out our Tandem Paragliding experience:

They are the Grand Champions in the Aliwan Festival (Manila-based competition for all the street dance festivals) in 2010 and 2011.
Dinagyang is the best time to go to Iloilo!
Here are the things you need to know to have an awesome experience in DINAGYANG:
