My 21st Birthday

Birthdays are like the most awaited day in a year and tend to celebrate with the people you love. Either friends and/or families. This year, I turned 21 (Oh man, I'm old!) I'm legal to do anything now haha xD. I wasn't expecting anything for my birthday. Well first, is because my parents are far from me and second, I feel like I don't have much friends. Paranoid, I know. I was actually sad when August arrived because for 1. I'm gonna be old and 2. Is that I think I will feel lonely and forever alone but thankfully I didn't. I actually celebrate my Birthday earlier and longer than expected. 

August 16, 2016 - TUESDAY

Not yet my birthday but my church mate just suddenly asked me and my friend if we're free after our devotional prayer so we can celebrate. I thought he was kidding but he wasn't! So why not? 

We ate at Shakey's Muntinlupa. Good thing that it's open 24/7 because we arrived there at past 10 in the evening. There are four of us so we've ordered the Family Deal 2 which comes with a Large Thin Crust Manager's Choice Pizza, Carbonara (can be Spaghetti) Platter, 5 Pieces Chicken 'n' Mojos and a Pitcher of Iced Tea. I had so much fun while eating because we talked a lot of random and nonsense stuff. The food was very delicious and most especially, I didn't feel alone. We didn't notice the time so we got home at almost 12 midnight!

August 19, 2016 - FRIDAY

My friend in school thought that it's already my birthday so we went out and later on I told her and she found out that it isn't my birthday yet so she said that it's our advance celebration. Yeay! Another celebration! Haha. 

We went to SM Southmall and decided to eat at Zark's Burger. We planned to eat at this Burger house before but it never happened. So this day was the day! We finally ate at Zark's Burger. The ambiance of the restaurant was cool. It is filled with different pictures and portraits of sports which I think is very nice. When I was young, I said to myself that when I will build my own house, I will fill it with different paintings and art so I appreciate this kind of stuff. Haha xD

The food servers were very approachable and accommodating. My friend and I didn't know what to eat because there are so many mouthwatering choices. I feel like ordering everything in the Menu! There are a lot of different choices some looks really really delicious but I gotta choose the best!


I ordered the Black Mamba because it's something different and I would like to try my burger with a Barbecue sauce because, why not? I don't want my burger to be dry too so  I thought, maybe barbecue sauce can help.

My friend, on the other hand, ordered Shaq. It is a cheeseburger topped with bacon and fried onion rings. She ordered that because she said that she doesn't like any vegetables on her burger and Shaq seems like a "regular" burger, according to her. She actually gave me the fried onion rings on top haha! Oh btw, you gotta add Php25 for fries and a drink. A choice of Blue Lemonade or Iced Tea. 

My experience at Zark's was indeed amazing. The burger and fries tastes good. Ambiance was good as well and the staff were all generous. I will definitely come back and try other flavors of burgers.

After eating at Zark's, my friend and I shop around SM and bought so many stuff but before going home, we stopped at Go Nuts, Donuts and bought donuts, of course! Haha, duh xD I had assorted flavors such as the Amazing Glaze, Chocolate Glaze and my favorite flavor there is the Pastillas de Leche, like I can literally live with it and just water.

We also stopped at Chatime to have Milk Tea because we got tired of walking around and talking whole day with her. Chatime is one of my favorite Milk Tea chains here in the Philippines besides Dakasi. With all of the different flavors to choose from... It's just simply great! 

August 21, 2016 - SUNDAY

One day before my actual birthday. LOL, "actual" birthday. Oh well. My sister promised me that we will eat and celebrate at Yellow Cab's pizza because she won't be celebrating my birthday with me because she will be at work and I will be at school. But my uncle changed the plan and decided to just go to Tagaytay. It wasn't planned for a long time but still, we went to Tagaytay. Sometimes, best moments happen unplanned. Rain started to fall while we are on our way to Tagaytay. We planned to eat at Josephine's but my uncle said that he wants to try somewhere different because we always eat at Josephine's Restaurant when we go to Tagaytay. He also said that he wants to eat Bulalo and my sister agreed with him so I just go with the flow. 

We ended up at Mer-Ben to eat Bulalo. There are actually a lot more Bulalo restaurant around the place but it was the place that my uncle chose so... xD

We ordered Adobong Pusit, Ensalada, Ampalaya and their specialty, the Bulalo. The food were okay but I wasn't really satisfied especially on the Bulalo. The hot soup was soooo good with the cold weather but it was too salty for me and they have a very little serving of the food like the Adobong Pusit and the Ampalaya. 

After eating at Mer-Ben, we drove to Twin Lakes Tagaytay to have some coffee at Starbucks. The cashier and the barista found out that my birthday will be tomorrow so they wrote a greeting on my cup which I think is cute. The place was very nice, I meant the view outside, but sadly it was foggy and kinda dark outside because of the rain.

While on our way home, we stopped at Red Ribbon because my sister will buy me a cake *teary*. What's a birthday without a cake? Haha! Funny thing, when we arrived home, my uncle said that he wants a slice but I said noooo and I hide the cake! It's forbidden because it's not yet my birthday haha! 


I woke up late. When I woke up, I was feeling... blank. Feeling meh. Feeling nothing. No excitement on me or whatsoever. I just don't know. I checked my phone and I saw some birthday greetings. It was nice and lovely to see that other people are greeting me and remembering me on my day but still. I feel nothing. So yeah, I got up and cooked Spaghetti for myself and for the tonight because my friend said that they will come over at night to celebrate with me because I kept on complaining to them that I will celebrate alone. After cooking, I went upstairs and went back to bed. My sister didn't even greet me like for real, no -_-. Not even "Happy djehbf" or just simply Happy -_-. Sweet right? 

It's afternoon already and I'm still feeling meeehhh and some people in my church messaged me on Messenger and I was shocked because they greeted me and we're not even close. They're my church mates but we just smile at each other when we're at church and I kinda told my sister, "oh em gee, they greeted meee!!!" and she was like, "so you're gonna cry now?" and I did and she was like, "Hallaaa! you did!". I don't know. Tears of joy. 

You know what made me more sad? This week is my exam week and I just couldn't concentrate. So I went to school and took the exams. I asked my professor in a funny way, "Ma'am, shouldn't I be exempted because it's my birthday?" and she just laughed and greeted me and the whole class sang for me *cries*. 

I finished taking the exams earlier than expected. My exam is scheduled 'till 9 in the evening but I finished everything at 7pm so I called my friend and I told her that I'm going home so she could come to our house. I went home, entered the gate and opened the door. The lights were closed and after I opened it, there was a banner saying "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" with baloons on the floor, some gifts and food on the table and I was surprised and teary and I saw shoes below our stairs (fail guys) so I was like, "Heeeyyy, guysss, I know you're there! Get out nowww!" but they didn't so I went upstairs and saw my sister sleeping. I went to check everywhere and finally, the bathroom and they when I opened the door, they shouted, "HAPPY BIRTHDAAAAYYY!!!!!" I was aaawwed and touched that they did all this for me. I wasn't expecting all of this. I though I'm gonna be alone and cry in the corner of our house, but they were here. With all the efforts and love. I'm teary right now haha. 

Cookies baked by my friend

Some cute letters from the kids in my church

I was really speechless because they were a lot. Not that much but I didn't thought that these people will come here at our house and do all of this for me. I was like, "guys, I only cooked a few Spaghetti, it won't be enough for us!" but they made food so it was fine lol. 
We had so much fun and the most exciting part was that, they bought a cake and I feel so loved. Like, for real. I blew the candle and without a wish. I didn't wish before blowing the cake, I just closed my eyes and said "thank you". I am very very thankful for having these lovely people around me. I may not be with my family, but they are my second family. 

They went home very late and I still couldn't comprehend how happy they made me feel on my birthday. It was really unforgettable. 

August 27, 2016 - SATURDAY

My sister just came from work and she woke me up and she said something. I didn't really understand it because I was still sleepy so yeah lol. It hit me when she said "Yellow Cab" so I abruptly said, "huh?" and she was like, "Oh see, that's your magic word" HAHA! She was saying that she will treat me at Yellow Cab Pizza because she made a promise to me. I told her, "didn't we already eat at Tagaytay?" and she said that she wasn't satisfied with that and I'm like, "yeah me too! Haha" YEEAAY! Extended haha xD

We ordered Chicken Alfredo Pasta, Garlic Parmesan Wings and their Signature Craft, Dear Darla.

My birthday was really unforgettable because I though I will be alone and be lonely but I didn't. I would like to thank everyone who didn’t forget my special day. Thank you so much for always making me feel loved and appreciated. Thank you for the all people who are always there whenever I need them. Again, I thought that day will be a boring and sad one because my parents are too far from me to celebrate my birthday and my sister has work ‘till morning, the next day, but maannn, I cannot express how happy my church mates made me feel with their surprise. Special thanks to my main bes, Kaye Jose for all the efforts you had given me! It was incredibly awesome! I cried when I went upstairs so that they won’t notice it because I don’t wanna be teased. 

Thank you also to all the poeple who greeted me (even though some of you won’t remember it without the help of Facebook, haha!) Thank you for all the Twitter greetings too! Mikey Bustos! You never fail to make me happy! You never disappoint me that's why I love you! 

Most of all, I would like to thank God for always taking care of me everyday of my life! He never left me alone especially on my special day. I can totally say that I am loved. Endless thank you and I love you all! Cheers for more birthdays to come! 

P.S. This is my debut HAHAHA I'm legal jkjk

All the love, Angelica Jacob xoxo

My Instagram Account

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.

Instagram is very popular nowadays because people always want to share different pictures of what's happening, different places, memories and most of all, pictures of food. I don't freaking know why I didn't have an Instagram account. Haha, just kidding. Way back 2014 when Instagram is starting to make their name around the world, I decided not to have an account because it seems like everyone is so into it. My weird side attacked and swore to myself that I won't make an account ever. 

Just two weeks ago, I made a friend and been talking to him lately. After a week, he shared me his Instagram account. I checked the link but he's on private. He was expecting me to follow him but I don't have an account and I so wanna see his pictures. I made a fake account (lollipop1D) just to check his pictures. I followed celebrities that I like too and stalked a lot of people and since then, I got attached to it. I was like on incognito mode everyday checking and resisting myself not to like posts of some people I know and the guy I like lol. Yes, stalking is my middle name. After 2 days, I seriously couldn't stop thinking if I should make my own account. The IG System ate me. 

I asked almost all of my friends (in real life and internet) if I should make my own personal Instagram account and I even made a poll on Twitter about it. --__--"

at least there are people who voted NO xD

And I'm happy to tell you that TODAY is a momentous day bec I just signed up and now, I have my own Instagram account! *clap clap* YEAYYYY!!! Haha be happy for me lol. I asked my sister to follow me because she have hundreds of followers and I asked her when did she make that account and she said 2010. Lol, I am 6 years late. Just 6  years. Doesn't seem bad xD. I'm also surprised that it has stories now just like Snapchat. Well I guess that's just because of their new updates. *shurgged* 

So yeah, I hope you'll follow me so you will see the pictures that I will be posting. I hope it won't annoy you though haha. My username is anjheee ♥ See ya there!

Me Before You

“Push yourself. Don't Settle. Just live well. Just LIVE.” 

Me Before You is a romantic novel written by Jojo Moyes. This year, they made a movie of the novel which made a major hit around the world directed by Thea Sharrock


Twenty-six-year-old Louisa Clark lives with her working-class family. Unambitious and with few qualifications, she feels constantly outshone by her younger sister, Treena, an outgoing single mother. Louisa, who helps support her family, loses her job at a local cafe. She goes to the Job Centre and, after several failed attempts, is offered a unique employment opportunity: help care for Will Traynor, a successful, wealthy, and once-active young man who was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident two years earlier. Will's mother, Camilla, hires Louisa despite her lack of experience, believing Louisa can brighten spirits. Louisa meets Nathan, who cares for Will's medical needs, and Will's father, Steven, a friendly upper-class businessman whose marriage to Camilla is strained.
Louisa and Will's relationship starts out rocky due to his bitterness and resentment over being disabled. Things worsen after Will's ex-girlfriend, Alicia, and best friend Rupert reveal that they are getting married. Under Louisa's care, Will gradually becomes more communicative and open-minded as they share experiences together. Louisa notices Will's scarred wrists and later overhears his mother and sister discussing how he attempted suicide shortly after Camilla refused his request to end his life through Dignitas, a Swiss-based assisted suicide organization. Horrified by his attempt, Camilla promised to honour her son's wish, but only if he agreed to live six more months. Camilla intends to prove that, in time, he will believe his life's worth living.
Louisa conceals knowing about Will and Camilla's agreement. However, she tells Treena, and together they devise ways that will help convince Will to abandon his death wish. Over the next few weeks, Will loosens up and lets Louisa shave his beard and cut his shaggy hair. Louisa begins taking Will on outings and the two grow closer.
Through their frequent talks, Louisa learns that Will has travelled extensively; his favourite place is a cafe in Paris. Noticing how limited her life is and that she has few ambitions, Will tries to motivate Louisa to change.
Louisa continues seeing her longtime boyfriend, Patrick, though they eventually break up due to her relationship with Will. Meanwhile, Louisa's father loses his job, causing more financial difficulties. Fortunately, Mr. Traynor offers Mr. Clark a position. Louisa realises that Will is trying to help her secure her freedom from her family. The two attend Alicia and Rupert's wedding where they dance and flirt. Will tells Louisa that she is the only reason he wakes in the morning.
Louisa convinces Will to go on a holiday with her, but before they can leave, Will contracts near fatal pneumonia. Louisa cancels the plans for a whirlwind trip. Instead, she takes Will to the island of Mauritius. The night before returning home, Louisa tells Will that she loves him. Will says he wants to confide something, but she admits that she already knows about his plans with Dignitas. Will says their time together has been special, but he cannot bear to live in a wheelchair. He will be following through with his plans. Angry and hurt, Louisa storms off and does not speak to him for the remainder of the trip. When they return home, Will's parents are pleasantly surprised by his good physical condition. Louisa, however, resigns as his caretaker, and they understand that Will intends to end his life.
On the night of Will's flight to Switzerland, Louisa visits him one last time. They agree that the past six months have been the best in their lives. He dies shortly after in the clinic, and it is revealed that he left Louisa a considerable inheritance, meant to continue her education and to fully experience life. The novel ends with Louisa at a cafe in Paris, reading Will's last words to her in a letter, that tell her to 'live well'.
So I watched this movie last night and I got attached again. I was seriously waiting for it to be released and I finally watched it last night. It was a very sad movie. I couldn't stop thinking about it even when I was in school and having a quiz! I got attached to so many emotional stuff way too easily. 
I think they had the perfect actors/actresses that fits for the role that they are playing. Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin made an impact on the character they played. They also have a chemistry which I loved the most. Emilia looks cute and she acquired the jolly personality that Louisa Clark possesses. Sam Claflin still looks hot even though he only made very little movements on the movie because he was just sitting in his wheelchair the whole time but he still looks sexy especially when Louisa shaved his beard and cut his hair. Everyone played a good job on the movie. 
The setting was great too! Perfect location as what is expected from the book. They had directed it well too. Details were present. We cannot expect a perfect arrangement as what the book had and I think they made a good sequence of the movie. The cinematography was well defined for me. I have seen the writer and the director's vision for the whole set. They also have chosen good sounds for the movie. From the opening to the end. The songs, and even the sound effects of the movie was good. Not Today by Imagine Dragon was a perfect choice. I can feel the emotion from their song which makes me sad and remember the movie. 
I seriously couldn't stop thinking about the movie. I like it yet the fact that Will was so selfish and he just chose to die than to live to be with the one he loves. I know it's just a movie/novel but I am so affected. It just defines that not everyone can be happy. I cannot blame him though if he is tired of his life just sitting in his wheelchair while desperately wanting to live his own life, which was once perfect. I don't know, it's just really sad and I cannot move on too easily with this. I was wishing that he will live for her but he didn't like if it's true love right? He will stay just for her remember, he once said "Sometimes , Clark, you are pretty much the only thing that makes me want to get up in the morning". Isn't that a thing to cry for T.T
Well, I seriously cannot wait for the second one which is called After You. I don't know. I am just really sad like, I was crying last night while watching the movie and I actually woke up this morning thinking about this movie and right now, Not Today is on repeat. I just got attached to this movie way too much. I know it is just a movie, like you're thinking "this girl is insane, she's living a fairytale. Move on!" but this is me haha. I don't know. I can't express my sadness. I can't explain what I'm feeling. I know that Sam is pretty much alive and staying hot and gorgeous but still...
The movie was excellent for me. The story was just, idk. The fact that Will decided to die than to live is really unacceptable. Overall it was good. Two thumbs up and a round of applause for this one.

Recipes Restaurant

Recipes by Cafe Metro is a restaurant that serves classic Filipino dishes with a twist. We were here earlier to have dinner after processing our passports at Alabang Town Center. I already ate at this restaurant when we were at Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila because we attended the awards night. 
  • Newport Mall, Resorts World Manila, 4th Level
  • Alabang Town Center, 2nd Level Corte de las Palmas

The prizes of the food are very affordable and good for two persons already. You can have different choices from Appetizers, Vegetables, Noodles, Soups, Chicken, Pork, Beef and even Seafood! They only have one dessert which is the Dessert of the Day and I guess that's surprising. 

Fish Fillet in Escabeche Sauce

Bagoong Rice

General's Tofu


The food were very delectable. The Fish Fillet was crispy and the escabeche sauce was perfectly flavored. The Bagoong Rice was also good. You can really taste and smell the Bagoong flavor. I like food with coconut milk and Recipes' Laing was very flavorful and creamy. Lasty, the General's Tofu! The waiter said that it's a little spicy but it wasn't. Well I think that's good because I don't like spicy food. They turned a simple tofu into a gourmet dish. The sauce was very delicious. A combination of sweet and salty with a pinch of spiciness. 

The presentation of their food are just simple and the serving looks little but believe me, it's enough. Only my sister and I ate these 3 dishes by the way yet we have 3 viands. The ambiance of the restaurant was very simple though. Like plain white and just lights. But anyway, the food was great so I guess that's fine. 

I really love the dishes in the Recipes Restaurant and I will surely dine again with my family and/or friends. I am looking forward on trying different dishes that will surely satisfy my palate. I also want to try their all-time favorite Crispy Tilapia, Lechon Kawali and General's Chicken. My overall experience was great so I give this restaurant a 4 out of 5 stars.

So last night, I just had one of my best sleep ever because I dreamed about Bradley Will Simpsons. I haven't actually have some good sleep these past few days because my cousins and I are staying up all night and the other night, well I watched a horror trailer (Unfriended) so I freaked out a little bit. Well not actually that little but anyway, I had a wonderful sleep last night.

I always dreamed about my idols like David Archuleta, Louis Tomlinson and most especially Harry Styles and I will never forget any of them. And even if I do, I already posted a blog about it so I can always re-read it and feel like I'm in dreamland again. 

Bradley Will Simpsons is so special to me not because he is a member of one of my favorite bands but also, he always makes me smile, he always makes me happy and yes, you guess that right, I love this guy so much. He is actually my favorite member of the band but that doesn't mean that I don't like James, Con and Tris. 

Maybe I got way too excited because next next Sunday, I will freaking see them in concert. Okay, my heart is pounding right now. You guys don't know my struggles just to see them in concerts and I am so happy now that I know that I will see them live and omg, teary eyes right now guys. :') Tears of JOY. 

So this is what happened, based on what I remember. Okay, I didn't made this up. So here it goes...

I was on this Arena where they will have a concert. I was the only one outside and it was too early. I waited for hours and a security guard asked me if what am I doing so I told him that I'm waiting for the boys to arrive. Time passes and it's already night and as I was sitting there in one corner, I saw the boys walking. OMG, so I stood up and shouted "I LOVE YOU BRAAAAAD!!!!", just like how I'm practicing to say it for their concert. Brad was in the middle wearing shorts, a shirt and a jacket without his signature hat. Tris, James and Con is walking with him and some blonde girl. As I saw Brad getting nearer, I ran for him and stopped in front of him. I stood in front of him, teary eyed and said, "Hi" and he smiled and hugged me SO tight. I felt it in my dreams and also my heart was palpitating and there was something in my stomach that I can't explain. We hugged for minutes. It was so tight, I couldn't barely breathe. We forgot that there are other people around us. Also I was crying when I hugged him. No, not crying but sobbing instead. I still can feel the warmth of his hug even if it was just a dream. We let go of each other and he wiped my tears with his right thumb and I asked for a selfie. I can still imagine what we looked like. Me on the left side and his arms is on my waist. I'm smiling and so was he. His arms were wrapped on my hips. OH EM GEE! 

I woke up a little and continued dreaming but this was kinda sad... 

After Brad and I took a photo together, my aunt called me and says that we are going to this grocery store (Okay, this is getting weird now) and be back for the concert. But when I got inside of the Arena, there are no more people anymore. It's weird because there are couches with pillows, instead of the regular seats that we can see inside some Arenas. The lights are off, except for the one on the stage, and someone is already mopping. I asked the guy sadly, "How was the concert?" and he replied, "It was fantastic". I felt so sad by what happened but I just thought of the moment Brad and I just had. Not everyone saw it but it will always and forever be in my heart. I also looked at our selfie and we looked happy and perfect for each other. I know their music, and I know it was beyond fantastic and Brad will always stay special in my heart. 

Brad, I hope you see this because I love you so much and I'm excited to see you rocking on stage. I know I can't hug you and take a picture with you as what I dreamed it would be :'( But seeing you happy makes me happy, especially if you will notice me. I love you so much you don't know how much it hurts sometimes. Vampette forever ♥

P.S. I want backstage passes :"(

Happy 24th Birthday David Archuleta

It's December 28 again!? You don't say!? Oh Gosh, do you know what that means? Today is David Archuleta's Birthday! He's 24 now, well not too old to be my husband, lol!

David Archuleta is so important to me. I still love him even if he's not that active anymore in the Music Industry because he's too busy doing some religious acts. I started "Fangirling" for David Archuleta and it will never end. I love this guy so much even if he still not noticing me for 6 years now :( You guys don't know how much I cried when he went to his mission, but thankfully he is back now.

Now my wish for David is first, to have an awesome 2015, a new chapter of his life, a healthy life and to stay with his family and be happy. Second is that he will do some concerts and albums again. And lastly, for his dreams and wishes to come true. 

I love you so much David and I will never stop loving you until my heart stops to beat. Take Care always and God Bless you! I love you! <3

Ilocos Sur

Ilocos Sur  is a province in the Philippines located in the Ilocos Region in Luzon Ilocos Sur is bordered by Ilocos Norte and Abra to the north, Mountain Province to the east, La Union and Benguet to the south and the South China Sea to the west.
*source: Wikipedia

Last Monday, we went to Ilocos Sur to have some sight seeing and a bonding together with my family and friends. We traveled for a total of 5 hours from Quezon City to La Union via SCTEX. We arrived at night so we stayed at one of the Bread and Breakfast at La Union.

After having a delicious Filipino Cuisine, we traveled another 1 hour to go to Ilocos Sur. When we arrived at the town proper, we were welcomed by many pasalubong stalls. 

We bought some local delicacies to try and eat while we are traveling. The famous Ilocos Cornick was really tasty and flavorful. I couldn't stop munching while we are in the car. After buying some snacks, we went to  Ilocos Sur Adventure Zone. The recently opened adventure center is the newest attraction this side of the province. It caters mostly to adrenaline junkies and adventure freaks with its climbing and rappelling walls, kayak center and of course, its 400-meter zip line.

The ride was short and fast but I enjoyed it. Even if it wasn't my first time to ride a Zipline but I still felt the fear of riding it like it's my first time. After having a thrilling ride, we drove another 30 mins to go to Vigan, Ilocos Sur. 

Vigan, officially the City of Vigan is a fourth income class component city and capital of Ilocos Sur. Vigan is nominated in being a part of the 7 Wonders CIties. It is famous because of the vintage and antique designs of the houses and different structures around the city.

It was lunch time when we arrived at Vigan and we had lunch at Cafe Leona. It is very famous in Vigan where they serve the authentic Ilocano food including Pinakbet and the Bagnet. We walked around the vintage street after lunch. 


It was really amazing to see that they have preserved the old houses in Vigan. Although some have a modern touch, but you can still feel and experience the simplicity and peace that the people had before. 

Another 10 minute drive and we arrived at the Baluarte Zoo which is owned by former Ilocos Governor Chavit Singson. There are no entrance free needed to see the free-sanctuary for some of the animals that he have. 

My overall experience traveling Ilocos Sur was really great. The food were so good and the people are very welcoming and friendly (well what do you expect with Filipino Hospitality?) The places were nice and historical. I had fun with my family and friend here at Ilocos Sur. I will definitely recommend this to my other friends and maybe come back soon with them.
