Palm Beach, Sariaya, Quezon

May 7, 2016

If you’re looking for a private beach for that barkada/family outing, you may want to check out Palm Beach in Brgy. San Roque, Sariaya, Quezon, which is approximately 2.5 hours away from Manila (via Maharlika Highway or the newly-opened Quezon Eco-Tourism Road). In this beach, one can enjoy the calm waters of the Tayabas Bay, brown powdery sand, and a view of the Mount Banahaw.

For more information, you may contact Mr. Al Gutierrez at 09088639148.

Bantakay Falls

December 26, 2015

The Bantakay Falls, which still forms part of the Quezon National Forest Park, is just magnificent. Our one-hour trek through the cemented trail, and under the rain was truly worth it.

Ugu Bigyan Pottery House & Bangihan ni Kuya Restaurant

October 11, 2015

In Tiaong, Quezon, lies the house and secret pottery garden of artist Ugu Bigyan. The garden is available for lunch, which requires an advanced reservation, and barako coffee. It also showcases the artist’s creations, which are available for sale.

Since we weren’t able to make a reservation, we had to have lunch elsewhere. We tried out Bangihan ni Kuya (“Elder Brother’s Grill”), which is located in Candelaria Diversion Road. Their Sinigang na Lechon would make us come back for more!

Mt. Mirador / Mt. Pinagbanderahan: Quezon National Forest Park

August 30, 2015

Situated right in the middle of Quezon National Forest Park is Mt. Mirador or Mt. Pinagbanderahan, whose peak is 1200 ft. above sea level. The cemented 2-km. trail is manageable, scenic and alluring to newbies in hiking. It was very important during World War II, as it was where the Philippine flag was hoisted; hence, its name.

Niyogyugan Festival 2015

Happy Quezon Day!

We met in Manila but as we got to know each other, we learned that we are both natives of the province of Quezon. (We also have some relatives who know each other. What a very small world!)

Janna’s paternal grandfather hails from Tiaong, while her grandmother is from Sariaya. On the other hand, Nikko’s maternal grandfather and grandmother are from Gumaca and Mauban, respectively. Thus, we were so happy to have witnessed the 3rd Annual Niyogyugan Festival in Quezon.

The festival lasts a week long but we were only there for a day. We were able to check out the creative booths that the different municipalities put up, and taste the various delicacies our province offers. Sariaya emerged as the grand winner of the booth contest and got P3 million as prize.

Until the next Niyogyugan Festival!
