The Native Hot Chocolate of Camiña Balay Nga Bato | ILOILO CITY







Camiña Balay Nga Bato is one the old houses in Iloilo City that open for the public last 2010, manage by the 6th generation of their family.



I arrived early around 7:30am, but the business hours operate by 8:00am, since I want only to drink a hot chocolate the caretaker allowed me to enter the house and serve a delicious Hot Chocolate, she says that it is okay to arrived early because the hot chocolate is easy to prepared unlike, a buffet breakfast you need to give them a call and make a reservation in advance, minimum of 10 persons.



Before touring around the house, the lady told me to watch the 5 minute short introduction about the history of the House. The house was more than 100 year old already, but the place is well-maintained as they use it for a special event like breakfast and dinner buffet and any special occasion , reservation needed.



I pay 150.00 pesos for the hot chocolate with a biscuit and for one time refilled. I like their hot chocolate because it is pure cocoa with milk instead of water to dilute it and they don't add more sugar. This is one the best Hot chocolate I ever tasted. It is also good with a compliment of ripe Mango and "Ibus" ilongo term which means a flavored sticky rice.




I enjoyed my tour in Camiña Balay Nga Bato for 150.00 pesos it's worth it.

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.


The last time I depart/arrive at this airport was in 2011 my 1st ever travel. There's a lot of changes and it more beautiful. I headed straight to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass since I check…
