It’s a relief to find a place to satisfy my gastronomic cravings without the need to take refuge to the nearby cities. Just a short recap, I’m currently deployed in the town of Estancia, which is a 3-hour drive away from Iloilo city. The town is very popular for fresh seafood and should be a heaven for me but my asthma and allergies are quite of a spoilsport. Moreover, the town has been devastated by Haiyan typhoon so the first time I arrived here, I had to struggle with the limited food shop choices, plus I don’t really cook that much. So imagine my glee when I heard that a popular restaurant, Punot, will be opening back and I heard so many good reviews from the locals and from my friends.
The food lover in me did not waste any time and I actually frequented the place four times just last week. I feel bad for my diet and pocket but the fooood choices are heavenly.

The interior of the place is also really good and I did grab the opportunity to have a photo op. Oooops, I’m always a vain, forever. 🙂
What a beautiful Saturday. Gigantes Group of Island is a must visit place especially if you are planning for island hopping. My workmates and I decided to explore the islands and it was really worth it. We visited the islands of Lantangan, Antonia, Cabugao, Tangke Lagoon, “Jacket2x” and Buenavista. We were not able to explore the other islands of Gigantes but that means we have to come back.
The highlight of the trip is me doing the obligatory pose at the top with the Cabugao Island as the background. It was quite difficult to climb on the top especially that it’s rocky but I am very thankful to my male workmates as they guided me all throughout. It was really worth the effort and “Puff” as I had a mini asthma attack afterwards.
The day tour may not be enough as there are a lot of places to explore but I had so much fun especially that I was with fun people.
It was also my first time to eat “Wasay2x” and it’s very delicious. Too bad, I was not able to indulge more as my allergies were quite of acting up again.
Of course, the trip means photo op. 😉 Feast on my vanity ( at least not all selfie.)

I’m feeling blue and uninspired today. It seems like I’m in a monotonic lifestyle that even pressure could not hold me back to do the tasks that I’m supposed to finish. Maybe, I’m just feeling exhausted from all the demands and issues that I have to face. I am not complaining and I know very well that I cannot give up, not yet. This too shall pass and I know that I’ll always have moment like this.
I’ll just smile and would look forward to a beautiful weekend.
