Lunch on a Stormy Out of Town Trip

Mid-week last week, mom told me about a trip to Anawangin Cove. One of her bosses told people at work inviting people to join in, and knowing the package price was only two thousand pesos, I told mom to grab it and join the trip because I know other packages cost more than that. Mom asked me to travel with her (so she will have a photographer), and since a trip to Anawangin Cove is something I dream about, I joined, too.

Our trip was scheduled last Saturday morning. We left around 4am and reached Pundaquit around 8am. It rained shortly upon our arrival, and because one of us brought a baby (more or less than 1 year old), we couldn't take the boat going to Anawangin Cove as most boats didn't have tarp as roofs. All we could do was stay at the cottage in Pundaquit and hoped for weather to be favorable on our part.

It was nearly lunch and still no sign for us to go. Thing was, the rain would stop for a while, but the tides at the shore was way too strong.

For lunch, we were served Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa na may Hipon and Inihaw na Bangus. The Ginataan dish was a little soupy, but I love the kalabasa! Of course I loved the hipon! The inihaw looked pale because it was wrapped in aluminum foil upon grilling (to protect the relish inside), but it tasted good.

In the end, we weren't able to set foot in Anawangin Cove, but all was good. With the tides that strong and with such stormy weather, we decided it would be best for us to travel back home and just re-schedule it.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
