Cruising on Loboc River in Bohol was sweet. 

The boat was big enough for many customers, but my sister preferred to have the whole boat on our own. It was actually a good idea, because we danced without feeling shy in front of the singer/guitarist who played us songs.

It was breezy that day and the world looked so green.

We were served lunch, with coconut juice, seaweed salad and fried chicken and rice on banana leaf plates, among others.

A group of local students also performed traditional dance and songs for us when we passed by their side of the river bank.

I liked that day very much. We were shown Filipino hospitality at its best.

  1. – Mmmm pan de sal. This bread will forever renimd me of the dark little Filipino store of my childhood, where we’d get live crabs, shrimp flavored chips, and lots and lots of pan de sal. Good for you for making it on your own! I, on the other hand, have not yet graduated to kneading recipes, but I’ll bookmark this one for when the day finally arrives. As a side note, have you ever had Filipino mocha cake? I remember my mom bringing it home when I was younger, and I never knew it was a Filipino thing until just recently. I’ve been searching for a recipe
