It's More Fun in the Philippines: Lake Danao, Ormoc City, Leyte

Ormoc has a special place in my heart as it is the birthplace of my mom.  We have been to Ormoc City several times and we just usually stay in the city.  In my mom's recent vacation to Ormoc, we decided to check out the beautiful places that the city is known for.  One of the first places we visited is Lake Danao National Park.  We were accompanied by my aunt and cousins from Ormoc when we went there. We were able to have a lunch that is full of laughter and good food.

 Lake Danao is about an hour away from Ormoc city proper.  It is located in the mountainous portion of the city. The guitar-shaped lake is very popular among locals and tourists especially during summer.  The entrance fee is only 10 pesos.

#Summer2015 Adventures: A Day in Palompon, Leyte

When my mom decided to have a vacation this summer, one of her chosen destinations is the beautiful island of Kalanggaman.  To be able to go to the island, you either have to pick Cebu (Malapascua or Maya Port) or Palompon, Leyte as your jump off point.  Since my mom also wanted to visit Ormoc, her hometown, we decided to pick Palompon .  We spent one day in the town and it was eventful as we were able to experience Palompon up close.  Here are some of the things that we did while in Palompon.

1. Lunch Day & Night Catering Services

It's more fun in Palompon, Leyte, Philippines

From Ormoc, our van trip took about 2 hours going to Palompon. Our driver chose the path via Villaba.  We left for Palompon at around 10 a.m. and we arrived around 12 noon. Our contact in Palompon is my wife's friend in medical school Camille Lequin.  Since we arrived during lunchtime, she suggested that we have lunch at her uncle's restaurant. Day & Night catering services is one of the popular catering businesses in the town and the owner has an eatery that features their delicious specialities.
