and for the third year in a row, the sunios spent holy week in the small, sunny town of cabugao, ilocos sur. somehow though, we still managed to find new things to do, like visit the ilocos norte museum in laoag and the baluarte in vigan.
staples during the annual homecoming are:
- cheap, fresh seafood(!)
- *the* ilocos empanada
- *the* ilocos longganisa
- lazy afternoons on the veranda
- trip/s to the nearby public beach
- visit/s to vigan
the cheap seafood alone is enough to convince me to pull my manila roots up and re-plant them in cabugao. i can still feel that piece of tuna melting on my tongue!
fresh tuna: 120/kilo. true story.
love, love, love.
