Butchoy’s wrath did not stop me and Regine from conquering nine towns that day. I almost cancelled out the last minute because of the recent storm that passed but the Manang Bola in me prevailed and I am glad I did not. Our itinerary for day one. Miag Ao – Guimbal – Tigbauan – Oton – Villa Arevalo – Molo – Mandurriao – Jaro – IloIlo City. From my hotel (Century 21), we hopped onto a Jeepney going to the market.
|Miag Ao Church, A UNESCO World Heritage Site|
From Market (locals call it Super) to Miag-Ao.
|We thought the rain will not let up, but good thing it did|
|Looks like a scene from a thriller-suspense movie 🙂|
|This church’s beauty is best seen from a distance|
|The shots are hazy and dark because the weather did not fully cooperate with us|
|One of the newer churches in Iloilo. I am missing the antique, old-age look|
|Statue of Rizal erected at the park not far from the church|
|The castle-like Molo Church’s facade|
|I like this Church. Looks neat and clean. This is also an old church recently repainted|
|Big Ben in Jaro?|
|I love this shot!|
9. Ilo-Ilo City
|Open during office hours|
We ate a heavy breakfast that was why we did not go hungry during lunch time. A bibingka snack in the middle will do. P20 for 5 small pieces. Trust me, they are delicious! We bought ours outside Molo Cathedral. The best bibingka I have tasted I tell you! Later on, we walked from Jaro to downtown Iloilo and paid a short visit to the museum.
