May Kwento Ako #36 : Elyu or LU ? Hello, La Union.

The best times to go to this surfing paradise, according to the surfers is from September till March for the big waves. It is during this period when the competitions are lined up, one after the other. Take note guys!

As fate would have it, I found myself returning to San Fernando, the city just before San Juan to attend “to some unfinished business”. But since one is in the countryside, hello fresh air, I also, intended to take advantage of every bit of spare time.

The rocky bottom of many parts of San Juan’s beach is not friendly for people like me who wade in. Only for those that are familiar with the terrain, I think. So, the next best things for me to do would be to snap some photos, enjoying real Ilocano food, bask in the heat of the tropical sun and my recently discovered favorite hobby – yakking.

I learned that some people refer to fresh seafood or fresh vegetables as including those that have been stored in the refrigerator or freezer for a few days or even a week or two. I think it is supposed to refer to those freshly caught or harvested then, they go to the market then, to the kitchen to someone’s dinner table. Now, to find out which are farmed and which ones are from the wild.

Gotta thank the cool folks at #LittleSurfmaid once again for a great stay in your surfer’s haven. Hope to be brave enough to take a surfing lesson next visit. Ha!

Yoga by the beach on an early Sunday morning must be a very good way to start the week.
Another chill thing to do, I suppose.
Fishing with a couple of fishermen maybe ?
Or Kayaking if your partner has good body coordination.
Go pray in any Church is always a good thing.
Sweet tasting alimasag … because they were freshly caught and hadn’t been stored in the refrigerator nor the freezer. Kaya nga fresh eh.
Freshly caught shrimps, anyone ?
Chow on this Pinakbet with generous chunks of bagnet as cooked by a real Ilocano cucinero only at Little Surfmaid Resort. Cooked with Batane and Camote. Go figure.
I had not seen Batane before. Here it is. ( Singing “Bahay Kubo, Kahit Munti” .. )
