Don’t miss DAY 3.
On DAY 4, we were back to Naga City. For our last day, we just eased up, wandered around town and ate, ate, ate before we set out to Manila in the evening.
The night before, we chilled out at PBar on Magsaysay Avenue. We had our dinner here and shared a pitcher of cocktail. The bar was full of life and music on a Wednesday night. It’s enlivened by conversations and cheers by groups composed of still-sober fellows tolerating their drunken wiggly friends. I wondered if they had work the following day. As for us, conveniently we didn’t.
On our last day, we checked out establishments along Magsaysay Ave–lots of eating places! It’s a road where you can easily jump from one store to another if you’re really in for a food trip. We spent a rainy afternoon in Starbucks, sipped our Frappuccinos and wrote letters to each other extemporaneously.
I guess the main mode of transportation around Naga City is tricycle as opposed to most towns in the Philippines wherein jeepneys rule. We could go anywhere around the town by tricycle for only 8Php each. (Don’t get fooled! Once, a driver charged us 30Php instead of just 16Php for the two of us. A trick is just don’t ask how much anymore.)
We went to the marketplace where there are many carinderias (local eateries) that serve cheap home-cooked foods. Near the mall, SM City Naga, there are also chains of carinderias so instead of eating at common restaurants, we went here. It’s not at all hard to explore Bicol cuisine.
In the evening, we finally boarded a bus back to Manila. Another long ride filled with snorts and cuddles.
