Puerto Princesa: Enchanted with the city in the forest

Isn’t it nice to go traveling and see a different landscape every now and then? But what’s even better is when your office sends you to another island just to unwind and relax sans budget worries and report deadlines. And that’s how my office mates and I found ourselves in mid-July. We were treated to a four-day vacation in Puerto Princesa City. We had our trip arranged by Christy Bongar of BAL Tours. We managed to snag plane tickets at half the regular rate taking a direct Cebu Pacific flight from Cebu to Puerto Princesa. 

As the plane was descending over Palawan island, I was in awe of the clear blue-green waters and the lush forest that covered the area.

Twistix, your funky potato munchies

We were intrigued by this. 

We thought it was a whole lotta fishballs on a foot long stick. So we searched for the stall selling this spiral munchies in Alabang Town Center's food court. We found it but we were wrong. These were not fishballs but one big potato sliced thinly so that when the ends of it were pulled apart, it made a spiral form. Cool! 

Twistix comes in different flavors: cheese, sour cream, sweet chili and pizza. It's a softer version of Pringles, best eaten a minute after it has been lifted from the deep fryer coz it tastes soggy once it has cooled down. The regular size costs Php 45.00, medium at Php 55.00 and the large one at Php 70.00.

Tablea @ Robinson's Cybergate

It was a Saturday afternoon and my friend and I were dying to satisfy our sweet craving. Upon the recommendation of another friend, we found ourselves sitting on one of the corner sofas in the middle of the Cybergate's hallway enjoying crepe and chocolate con churros. Chocolate overload at Tablea.
