Growing up with the family that enjoys home made meals by the people you love is always heart warming for everyone. Just like in the movie ratatouille when you tasted a meal that reminds you of your childhood is always a great experience. Here’s quote from the movie, “I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere. It is difficult to imagine more humble origins than those of the genius now cooking at Gusteau’s, who is, in this critic’s opinion, nothing less than the finest chef in France. I will be returning to Gusteau’s soon, hungry for more.” When I tasted the meals that they served it brought me back to my childhood days when my grandmother used to cook for us.

Finally a cafe at my mother’s hometown. First of its kind in the area where the cafe occupies the lower portion of a Spanish house. Upon entering the compound, lush greens will welcome you. Culture and great food meets in a place where everyone is already at home as early as 7pm. Baao is a place where you want to feel the probinsya vibes.

The Christmas season is coming once again and to kick start, why not visit Santa’s reindeers? Before I start telling you about the Deer Farm, I’m going to tell you a little bit of it’s history. Cam Sur Deer Farm is not new to the province. It’s been actually here since I was young. I remember when I was in grade school, it’s one pf the places we got to when we had field trips with my class. It was first located at the Cam Sur Capitol grounds but after sometime if just suddenly gone. Unknowingly, it was just relocated into a bigger environment and a more natural habitat for the deers.
Trying to find a home away from home, when visiting the pilgrim city of the Naga while you experience and show your devotion to our Virgin Mother, also know to the Bicolanos as Our Lady of Peñafrancia? From translacion where our Lady is transferred to Naga Metropolitan Cathedral to the Peñafrancia Shrine and during the fluvial procession where Ina is returned to her permanent home at the Naga Basilica. Well, worry no more! Naga has a lot of hotels and inns that offer accommodations to devotees but the number one choice for excellence in service is the Avenue Plaza Hotel.
In a city where food is one of the main destination, a lot of new cafes and restaurants are popping up in Naga. One of the newest addition to my must try list for is the newly opened Tugawe Cove Cafe located at the newest mall that opened in the city, Robinsons Place Naga.

Naga City is known as the heart of Bicol. Millions of devotees of Our Lady flock to the city for the 9 days novena for our lady of Peñafrancia.
