Ahh, the long-awaited Philippines post! I originally had paragraphs & paragraphs about our trip but I think it's probably best to let the pictures do most of the talking :)
Every time I return to the Philippines, I get crazy ideas about skipping out on the return flight, building a nipa hut and living on the beach, living on kinilaw and the occasional coconut. Unrealistic, yes...but I don't need much. Just sunshine, water, some Filipino food and a chaotic entourage of relatives, I guess!

|Kinilaw malasugue...sort of ceviche-esque, but with swordfish and tabon-tabon!|
|Our daily breakfast: garlic rice, fried egg, longanisa, beef tapa...YUM!|
It's always so exciting to see all my aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins! I really hope to be able to visit more often from now on. And I definitely need to improve my Visaya...

We spent some time in Bohol too...if only we could have stayed longer. My parents stayed behind and visited Cebu for a few days. Lucky...well, next time nalang!
