MacArthur's Landing memorial at Palo, Leyte
Tacloban City Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
After a few days in Manila, we made our way to Tacloban for a 4-day trip. It was divided into visiting my relatives (dad's side & then mom's side) and my friends with a little city sightseeing on the side. My uncle picked us up from Tacloban airport and then we made our way to Jollibee for breakfast. Ordered the chicken joy meal. I love how they serve their chicken, they actually do it right - it's crunchy/crispy and also tasty. Sad to say, KFC Australia's chicken isn't even up to par. The skin's soft & also peeling off.
Anyway enough about chicken, after breakfast my uncle took us to my auntie's house & we left our bags there, relaxed for a bit before heading back into the city to do some shopping.
Met up with my cousins in the afternoon, we commissioned our uncle to be our driver, he enjoyed hanging out with his nieces & nephews since it made him feel young. hahah He took us to MacArthur's landing memorial, took the usual photos. After that we had halo halo at Chow King while we waited for my other cousins. Btw I think the halo halo is the only thing worth getting from that place. Everything else is substandard. It was only 5pm yet the sun have set & it didn't help that it was pouring down rain. Nevertheless we soldiered on and drove to San Juanico Bridge to take some photos.
We then made our way back to my auntie's house for dinner, she cooked us a feast. After we had our tummy's fill, we drove to my other cousin's house, picked him up & we went to have some coffee at Gloria Jeans.
We left the bar at around 3am & made our way to this 24 hour restaurant & ordered some soup for ourselves. Our head was throbbing sooo badly. Our chaperone/uncle didn't think much of our drunkeness. He took it in stride & was even proud of us for lasting that long considering we were drinking the hard stuff. Too bad the other uncles & aunties weren't impressed. LOL
All in all it was a good night. ^_^
