The planned trip got me really excited and while boarding the plane I can’t stop asking my folks on what to expect, where should we go etc. I was on a mission to track everything about my conception. I even asked my Ma to bring my baby pictures so that I can see the landmarks etc. and compare them with the current Palawan scene.
Upon arriving at Puerto Princesa Pop started looking and tracking the old friends they had 20 plus years ago. Luckily Pop was able to contact his former driver, one of my Godmothers (the only living God parent I have). Mama with Ninang Norma
Day 1 for Papa was all gala & fun already while it was shopping spree for Ma & me. The evening was the reunion. I was able to meet my Ninang Norma and my kinakapatids. Capitol's signage and the altar of the cathedral where I was baptized
We strolled along the city that evening, the city tour was great because our old family friends who happens to be locals were very accommodating and each offered a lot of good information about the city.
The next day was the tour of the Crocodile farm in Irawan, more driving (up to Mitra’s residence, beach & Penal Colony – malayo di na kame umabot).

We had lunch at Bilao’t Palayok – a great seafood restaurant with a cozy native ambiance. I love their food. A whole bilao of different seafoods costs P650 only. Sobrang sulit. Tuesday was our trip back home, sigh I had a real nice time too bad it’s time to go home. I was so happy I went to the place where I was born on the 27th marking of my life.
