If you come to Puerto, book yourself to Moana Hotel it's a small but nice place to stayed with and the staff are friendly. Of course, wi-fi is everywhere in the hotel.

City Tour!

It sounds so excited yet felt like a kid somehow that i will be touring around the Puerto Princesa and like a student or something with a tour guide that will tell us the history of the said city wtf!

Prepared and organized my bed/room before going out.

Nice or what?

Here we go need to look around the city.

Here we go my limousine. WTF! This one is two doors lolol!

Vrooommm!!

The historic Immaculate Conception Cathedral in Puerto Princesa.

Fact: (based on the research) Historically, the place was named after Princess Eulalia of Spain, born in 1864 to Queen Isabel II and her consort, Dr. Francisco de Asis. When the princess suffered an untimely death, the Queen changed the name to Puerto de la Princesa. Eventually, the name was reduced to Puerto Princesa as it is known today.

 Around the lil plaza.



The weather so nice to walk around.

Look how simple life here but I like it though. No pollution.

So, I better off my ass the van and pretend that I am so excited.

Just passed to the the Phil. Ports.

2nd point of destination: Plaza Cuartel

The entrance gate.

It said here, this old place had been the prison place of 150 US soldiers during the second world war in December 14, 1944. Few survived and had swim to the sea going to Iwahig which is currently a place to open prisoners. Later to further discuss about Iwahig because we are moving there.

A monument where the named of died soldiers listed on it. Feel creepy while reading.

Looks like a teenage girl. 

This is the hole which made by the US Marine to escape from the enemy. They dig along the way up to the sea so they can survive.

Ok, I have a lil story while having this short trip to Iwahig. After the dance performance, one of the prisoner came to greet me, it was the guy on my left side (on his white cap). He told me: "You are so pretty, miss would you mind after my sentence I will find and look for you?" Damn, I was speechless only smiled on him. One of my friend, Sharon came to rescue me she was like: "Oh, if you still can get your freedom!"

Showing you the cute flight steward. ~Wink!

He is so damn cute!! Agree or what?

We should have stop/stranded for a while because of some planes queuing.

Oh, missing the Palawan already. Sober.

As I am looking on the island disappearing on my eyes I told myself, " Yes, I am going back to you."

Until I saw clouds.. then I sigh.

And then I closed my eyes... remembering those good memories. 

I kept coming back to Manila. Oh yeah!

Sounded Manila safe and well.

I have learn a lot of with this Palawan trip, among of all my trip inside Philippines this one is so far the top one. I can say that I will keep on coming back here and planning to book before this year end. I gain a lot of friends, good friends perhaps and memories I kept smiling when I remember of those. Next time, I am gonna take my full island tour including the Underground River of Palawan.
