Must-try Camiguin Food (and Where to Find Them!)

Camiguin is a small island off the coast on the northern side of Misamis Oriental. Second only to Batanes as the smallest island in the Philippines, Camiguin spans just 238 sq. km. At its longest, it is just 23 kilometers or basically the whole stretch of EDSA.

Despite its size, Camiguin is a trove for foodies. Most of the food is still hugely Filipino, but International influences are slowly creeping in. Thanks in part to the expats who settled in the island, and the growing tourist community with varying palates.

Here’s a roundup of our food finds at Camiguin:Read more

Subic Water Park Hopping: Inflatable Island • Adventure Beach • Aqua Planet

I surprised the boys with a memorable water park hopping adventure in Subic this summer.  Aqua Planet and Adventure Beach Waterpark opened this summer, and Inflatable Island is now bigger.

We also found the best place to stay in Subic with a nice infinity pool and suite rooms with international standards at Best Western Plus Subic.

Here is how to organize your own water park escapade:


First Things First

We found our favorite place to stay in Subic because of the roof deck infinity pool with a nice sunset vantage point.

Aqua Planet claims that it is one of the biggest water theme parks in Asia. Located in Clark, Pampanga, it’s the hottest water theme park destination this summer near Metro Manila.

Having been to the Adventure Cove Waterpark in Sentosa and LEGOLAND Waterpark in Malaysia, we decided to validate this claim with the boys.
