Alas, another surprise, we were going to have our lunch in a resto next to a massive and imposing old spanish church. Apparently, This church is the biggest and oldest in Laguna which was built in 1611— thru pola or forced labor during the Spanish regime.
After lingering inside the church for an extended time - to escape the heat outside and I was in awe just to enjoy the adornments inside this church, we went out for lunch, a buffet lunch which was part of the itinerary. We were served with chicken, roasted pork and tilapya in coconut sauce. As we finished our lunch with fresh coconut drink, I noticed my cousin stood and took picture of something on a plate held by the owner (I only assume this) of the resto. Then we I got closer, that's when I realized that that was fruit bat cooked in an adobo way. Then the guy offered and I took one. The whole of the bat skeletal structure was there, and it was a painful sight.
After the bat episode, the same guy approached us and offer a shot of the local wine... Lambanog! I love this one, taste better than vodka for me. :) I had two shots and it made me sweat like a pig especially that it was a sweltering hot that time of the day. I had to change clothes and I blame it to the Lambanog. :)
We stayed in that town for few more minutes before we head next to another town... in Liliw.
