Currimao’s Pangil Beach turned “plastic beach”


Such a heart-wrenching story from home, I stumbled upon on social media, photos of Currimao’s Pangil Rock Formation in Ilocos Norte, posted by Jayson Lumbo Navarro —  a truth behind the unique coral rocks along the coast of Currimao, and mostly located along Pangil Beach.

The fishing town of Currimao, home to Ilocos’s best beach resorts, namely Sitio Remedios, Playa Tropical, and Pangil Beach Resort, is a popular tourist destination, with its nearly 3-kilometer unique coastline and ancient ruins an emerging tourist spot. Read more about Currimao’s Barangay Pangil, and “the defenses of Ilocos Norte”, by Bernard Joseph Esposo Guerrero, on Rappler (here).


It is both agitating and depressing when elected officials are not fulfilling their duties to their localities, especially when it comes to public health and safety. Do they even have time to go around and check for themselves what is happening around their communities?

The amount of garbage around Pangil is scary, thinking that younglings thrive around the corals. Calling the attention of current Currimao Mayor Gladys Cue.

Having in hand Japanese Kumori Cheesecake


Just a quick review of Kumori’s signature Hanjuku Cheese before going to the last of my latest Baguio series. I have to thank my best friend Marla for the box of sweetness. Since New York cheesecake is the only cheesecake I will have over and over again, a fluffier, creamier Japanese cheesecake will hand over a bit of heaven as well.


The size of this very Japanese cheesecake is just right to whet one’s appetite for something sweet and cheesy. To my taste, sugar level is not that high. The texture goes from pillowy to silky. It’s half-baked I read. Considering that the bakery originated in Japan, and the Philippine Kumori uses imported ingredients, except the eggs, the goodies are on the pricey side (again, I had to probe). You can find them, and perhaps fall for other Kumori goodies, at SM and Landmark Makati and SM North Edsa.

On cloud nine for now.
