Tagultol Fishing Festival 2010

Atimonan, Quezon

Atimonanin: people of Atimonan

Thanks to Niña Josie and her family for inviting us and for the warm reception. It's the town's fiesta in honor of Our Lady of the Angels.

It's a 6-hour trip from Manila. We passed the famous Quezon National park. Though it rained along the way, but it didn't stop us. We dipped ourselves at Green Park resort for free, with matching suman for snacks. We witnessed the town program, DYD LGU vs Atimonan All Stars, and the Concert at the Park. We gambled at the town carnival playing colors game. We tasted the famous Pasig (a version of snowball with gulaman and sago) and the flying saucer (inipit-type of bread with hotdog and cheese for filling).

The following day, we watched the streetparty parade and competition. We're so amazed by how these kids performed amidst the scorching heat of the sun. They all wore colorful costumes, very creative. Choreography's fantastic. We went to Campo Puroc and took pictures of the mermaid statue. I used to see this whenever we go to Calauag but it was my very first time to climb down the rocks and witnessed the mermaid up close.

Thanks to Nanay and ate Eunice for their delectable dishes. I really love the fried fish kahit matinik, sinigang na miso, pansit, marble cake & cheese bread. You'll never go hungry when you're there.

Before going home, we bought some delicacies like the uber-delicious Broas, yema, bukayo, sampalok. I spent much just for the pasalubong but it didn't matter anymore. It will make my loved ones happy naman eh..

Another 6-hour trip as we headed back to Manila. We just don't wanna leave yet but we need to. I just wish we can go back here again, even without an event, just to relax our body and free our mind from the hustle and bustle of Manila.
