I’ve said it time and again, the charm of Ilocos comes from its laid-backness… the quaint towns, the vast spaces, the low standard of living that allows families to be able to send their children to school, the children’s naive smiles, and a thousand more reasons in my book. Hope it will remain livable for as long as I live.
We stopped by Candon for snacks. Candon is the other progressive city in the province of Ilocos Sur, though there are still several remaining old houses like those in Vigan City.
The Candon Plaza is a popular stop for tourists. Brown calamay (coconut shreds made with sticky rice, tagalulot or molasses), white calamay (sweetened with refined sugar), cornik and Vigan bibingka sell fast.
The dancing fountain by the plaza is so aliw. Opera music then Bad Romance, shades of Chicago Millennium Park, soothing on a hot summer’s day:)
