The most high end and only resort in Batanes, the Fundacion Pacita. It has beautiful views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Pa sosyal!! Beautiful Batanes 😍

"The Goodness of God be with you" is the version of Ivatan for "How are you?" or "Kapian Kamu Pa Nu Dios." Happy #ChooseDayTuesday

Ah #Batanes...such a #romantic destination in the #philippines. If you happen to be in Batan right now, make sure you visit #fundacionpacita and have #dinner at #cafedetukon. If not, maybe it's time to plan to go there next Valentines. Batanes is not known for having good food just so you know but the #ambiance in this restaurant is great, you get an amazing view of the #rollinghills and you get to see fantastic art. Now let's go back to food. Because of extreme weather conditions in Batanes and the lack of electricity back in the days, #ivatan s developed certain techniques in preserving different kinds of food like pork and fish. There's a handful traditional dishes and after 2 days there, you probably would have tried it all. It was the last night of our trip when we went here so I ordered the ones that are not usually served in regular restaurants. For appetizer, I had Lavaten, a local #kilawin or #ceviche topped with lunis which is pork cooked with just rock salt over firewood until its fat is rendered then stored in its own lard in clay jars for months to ensure continuous supply. My main entree was Arayu kan uwi. Arayu or dolphin fish is hung to dry under the sun for a week and then smoked on top of a traditional cooking stove. Upon serving, the fish is boiled to soften and then fried until crisp. It’s served with a boiled sweet potato (camote) and taro (ube). I find the fish very dry and salty but it's something I just had to try. For dessert, Nick and I shared a #calamansi #cheesecake. Nick had a vegetable panini btw and felt it was okay. Again, you don't go to Batanes for food (just to warn you). I'll post some other traditional food in my fb page if you wanted to check it out. Sorry for all the late post. There's so much to share in my oh so little free time. #foodie #foodporn #travelphotography #letseat #travel #travelbug #travelgram #organic #wheninmanila

Okay! Last post for the Batanes series! I really enjoyed this wedding. I mostly enjoyed the company and how breathtaking everything was everywhere I turn or look to. Happy for the people I’ve met and have gotten to know throughout the preparation of the wedding up to the very end (where flights got delayed, a day or two because of the harsh storms). I’m happy that the wedding day was blessed with such good weather and that it happened in such a simple, rustic setting, with only the people who matter to witness it. I’m happy I got to spend time with my family and that now, it’s a lot bigger and happier. I’m happy for my brother and my new sister who are so in love, and I know will always be. I’m happy for all the adventures and exploration I got to do in between. Happy, happy, happy. Thank you, Big Guy up there and the universe for conspiring such a meaningful and life-changing wedding. 🌹💙.
