Namalhas sa Roxas....:-)

Roxas City - Seafood Capital of the Philippines

sunny 26 °C

And on Thursday, we packed our things very early because it will be a long travel for us, kasi we booked a plane ticket from Roxas City to MNL. We want to experience the so called "Seafood Capital of the Philippines", We just want to make sure that they can stand that great title..

We arrived noontime in Roxas City, we 3 decided to go to Gaisano Mall and try Ted's Batchoy, kasi palagi nilang binibida ang Ted's sa akin na pinakamasarap na batchoy sa Iloilo.... Okay, go! let's give it a try!

But the very accommodating Tricycle Driver, told us na much better to go to Baybay, according to him there are 20 restos to choose from. Well! kailangang maniwala sa local, sila ang may alam e. Hehehe! Malayo pala sya sa city center but along the way to Baybay the Tricycle driver was just so hospitable, he told us some facts about Roxas City, doon pa talaga sya dumaan sa bahay nila Mar Roxas so that we can glimpse the said ancestral house.

Kaya lang umandar ang pagka "Fake" Ilongga ko, nagtanong ako sa driver in Ilonggo, kaya sinagot ako in straight Ilonggo at ang bilis nyang magsalita, di ko tuloy maintindihan, dumugo ang ilong ko don ha! Akala ko English lang magpapadugo ng ilong ko, pati pala Ilonggo..bwahahahaa!

Pagdating namin don sa Baybay, truelalou nga ang sinabi ni Manong Driver, ang dami ngang Resto don. Pinili na lang namin ung pinakamalapit, kasi sobrang init talaga. Pumunta agad kami sa Beach para magpapicture.

And may bunos pa kami, we chatted with the owner of the resto, He's Francisco Monfort, bagong open pa pala ang resto nya last October 4 lang yata. Very accommodating and Mababait din mga crew nya kaya lang medyo mahiyain, pero konting kembot lang magiging entertainer na rin ang mga yun.. hehehe!

After our lunch, we went to People's Park which is katabi lang ng mga Restos. Malinis ang lugar, at maraming beach resorts din don. As a whole, Roxas is a clean city, ewan ko lang sa mga sulok sulok na lugar nila. Aside from that, very friendly din ang mga tao kaya lang I observed parang ang daming nanlilimos na mga paslit.. :-(

Mantalinga Island yan!

From People's Park you can have a clearer view of Mantalinga Island na according to Mr. Monfort jan kinukuha ang mga shells and oysters na siniserve sa mga Restos.

Right after pictorials, dumiretso na kami sa airport, kaya lang di pa kami pwede pumasok kasi close pa. Wow! first time ko 'to, may airport pala na ganon parang office lang na may lunch break...hehehe! Pero okay lang din kasi di naman talaga sya busy na airport, given na domestic airport sya na di talaga busy. And good thing 30pesos lang ang terminal fee nila. It's really a great alternative airport if you will go to Boracay, this is just 2 hours and 30 minutes from Caticlan. From Caticlan to Kalibo is just 100pesos and Kalibo to Roxas City is just 120pesos. At makakakuha ka talaga ng piso fare if you will choose this airport kasi most of the people want to arrive and depart in Caticlan airport. And parang side trip mo na lang ang Roxas City, hitting 2 birds in 1 stone, ika nga! hehehe..
