Ice Valley

The reason I love Starbucks’s green tea drink (despite the fact I absolutely hate green tea) is because some genius decided to add red beans to it. I just love red beans, in fact, it’s one of my favorite ingredients in halo-halo. So why the hell am I blabbering about red beans? Because it was the saving grace of that disappointing halo-halo that I had when we tried Ice Valley.

Blue Lagoon Restobar

So there’s a movie, a pristine beach in Pagudpud, and a lake in Palawan called “Blue Lagoon”. Just when I thought I’ve heard it enough, we found this restaurant in Coron of the same name. That’s where we had our dinner after a dip at Maquinit Hot Spring.


Coffee Food

Coffee Kong

“I am hungry” was playing on repeat in my brain when we arrived in Coron. It was around 4 and we haven’t eaten our lunch so we were naturally famished. So as soon as we settled our stuff at Patrik & Tezz, we were off to the town to find a place to eat. While walking we saw this cute coffee shop with glass door and walls. The sign says, Coffee Kong.


A Guesthouse on Stilts in Coron: Patrik & Tezz Guesthouse

Patrik & Tezz Guesthouse reminded me the wisdom behind the saying, “Do not judge a book by its cover”. From its website that is anything but appealing to its equally unappealing facade, P&T ain’t something the picky travelers would give the time of day. But I’m here to tell you that if you are willing to overlook these little disappointments, you may likely end up sharing our opinion that P&T offers one if not the best accommodation in Coron.
