At long last, I now got myself true ‘property’ of photos of that popular bewitching view when you google Coron and view the image results. Photo above is of Kayangan Lake, famous destination when you visit Coron, Palawan, Philippines.
When it says “Take nothing but pictures, Keep nothing but memories, Leave nothing but footprints” – then I’ve done all those to the three Palawan spots: Puerto Princesa, El Nido and Coron! Yay! So the bribery to myself works! Work hard and I could then look forward for the reward sometime later 🙂 Reward = Getaway 😀
And you know, one of the great things about travelling is meeting people from different walks of life, with different characters, with different magnificent stories! I’m always astonished when I get great ideas from ones you meet random and though I was always tad apprehensive in chucking up people’s peaceful holidays a bit by interrupting them, that didn’t show when I invaded them by asking questions 🙂 Just so lucky the ones I meet are superbly nice and happy to share especially travels to Europe and everywhere. Oh I am always amazed how the world is full of wonderful, kind hearts!
Though may not be as huge and beautiful as Phi Phi Islands of Thailand or Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. So some may find it hard whether to go and see Phi Phi and Ha Long Bay still after this.
Though of course, I still want to see Phi Phi Islands and Ha Long Bay. But now, as they just almost look like this, I push them down to the later part of the list, paving way to places more unique compared to the Philippines… so I now have a qualified reason why Macau is one of the next priority destinations.
Breathtaking views, good for some lone time, reminiscing moments before ‘back to reality’ on a Manic Monday awaiting!
A caffè latte to cap the day off – perfect! – At Dad’s Coronzy coffeeshop
You could have guessed that it will be almost impossible if food part is missing in my blog.Yes, this is now that part!
Well, hello! There’s that half-headed crab with one eye sticking out 😀 – Dave’s Seafood Tom Yum… “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” not the crab sticking its eye out, but Dave using spoon instead of knife in the Philippines hehe .
So when I have helplessly allowed myself for pesky carbo stuffs to defeat my obedient palate the 1st night, I’d have to pay-off, so only had veges that night at Coron Village Lodge while everyone else indulged and finished off market’s supply of sugar for trick-or-treats on Halloween night huhu! Coron Village Lodge appears on most recommendations, from TripAdvisor to blogs (perhaps travel books as well?). Absolutely recommended place!
Apple-banana-mango smoothie at SeaDive Resort before my departure. Bay View + smoothie = serendipity
With Robin from Germany in the tour group in Kayangan Lake. Thanks Robin for tips on travels to Europe and perhaps teaching English in China (why not!) [but no cheese in some villages there? nooo!]… Enjoy Hungary and Miami next (I’m envious!)
So my beautiful friends, as I wiggle my way down to the list, I engross to many things at same time. Can I just add that this enchanting-Coron-trip is, by far, my most peaceful and fulfilling trip.
Thanks a million and join me again next time, around 4th week of November for my next destination within the Philippines! Meanwhile, back to work on Monday.
Hope you’re all well and happy!
Still enchanted with Coron,
