twisting mountain road from the eastern side. Nighttime. Nothing much to see or do. So we thought of heading straight towards food as we were already hungry, even if we munched many of those delicacies we bought from Burauen. The talk was now on what to eat while driver made his way towards the city center. While most of us are not first timers in Baybay, we were unsure if there was anything “really or rarely Baybay” that we should not miss for dinner. None surfaced and we were already at city center. The DTI representative with us said, we can try a restaurant he has eaten at by the water’s edge near the pier. So we went.
As dinner winded (most of us did not use our utensils), the talk on where to stay overnight continued - even as some of us lined up at the makeshift lababo without running water hehe. Comparing what everyone had previously stayed at, the most ‘probable’ candidates were GV Hotel, Palermo and Novotel that we can see from where we were. Until the curious in me (since I haven’t seen it yet) said, “di ba meron din hotel inside ViSCA? Make the long story short… after dinner, we drove off the city going to Visayas State University with my fingers crossed hoping their hotel would be comparable if not better to Novotel’s hehe.
That’s next. Promise!
