Laoag, Ilocos Norte

We dropped by Fort Ilocandia just to stroll around. It is the only five-star hotel in the Northern Philippines.

I can see that this used to be a very grand hotel. Now, the 77-hectare property looks bare with mostly Koreans and Chinese visitors.

Before check-in in our hotel, we had lunch at La Preciosa. Of course, we wanted to try the authentic Ilocano dishes.

Apple walnut Toblerone slice

best carrot cake in the world!

For the finale, we took a picture with our governor, Laguna governor, ER Ejercito. He is our neighbor in my dad's hometown, Pagsanjan. He gave us copies of his old movie and invited us to watch his upcoming movie for the MMFF with KC Concepcion as leading lady. He also got my number when he learned that I'm a doctor at St. Lukes. Hello, textmate!!!
