Discussion in 'Off-Topic' started by capslocked, Sep 6, 2015.

  1. 1. Food!
    Arevalo District’s shoreline is a treasure trove of dining delights. We had loads of fresh and delicious oysters both baked and steamed, scallops, fish and prawns plus Buco halo-Halo at Breakthrough Restaurant!

    2. Molo, Biscocho and Tsokolate plus History at Camiña Balay nga Bato in Arevalo
    You only take a break from eating to catch your breath and on to having a nice warm bowl of Molo Soup, Biscocho paired with Tsokolate and listen to History at the Camiña Balay nga Bato.

    3. Calle Real
    Walking around or having a rolling tour of Iloilo is a lesson in history with all its heritage houses and the Calle Real where business is done in buildings 80 to 90 years old or more.

    4. Casa Mariquit Heritage House
    For some who have opened third eye, the place gives them the creeps but the memorabilia of the late Vice President Fernando Lopez which are kept in the house would take your mind off the fear.

    Obey what your guide said: Don’t open closed cabinets, doors or rooms. Ask permission when you want to take photos and say “Good Morning” or “Good Afternoon” to whoever lives in the house, living or spirits.

    6. Jaro Cathedral
    Your tour of Iloilo City would not be complete without dropping by its churches. We were fortunate that the rain was not that hard and allowed us to light a candle and say a prayer at the Jaro Cathedral formally known as the Jaro Metropolitan Cathedral and the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Candles.
