Home for us in Tuguegarao was Mango Drive, a little motor court with 8 big rooms tucked in the outskirts of Tuguegarao. Each room has its own spacious parking facility. It reminds me of California’s roadside motels.
The architectural design is infused with Japanese touches. I personally like its minimalistic theme. It was designed by owner Red Diwa, an architect who is also an off-road race driver. His passion for 4×4 obviously extends to his work.
Brandon, now 12, after the race, where he was a finisher. He was the only competitor from Ilocos, and again, the youngest driver in the “Ratratan Sa Planta 2” off-road challenge.
