Paoay Church, Sitio Remedios + Day 2 Contest

Good day!!!  I've been running around with the energy I can't explain, it must be the sites, the tour and the feel of Road Tripping!!!  I've been a road tripper most of the time but it's always out of the country!  I can't believe I missed so much for 3 decades + one of my life!!!  And guys...it's never too late to start exploring!  I promise you!

Continuation of Day 2 at Laoag City.  We visited the famous Paoay Church, I've only been seeing photos of this lovely structure and I swear....it's 1 million times better looking in person!  Anyone who's single would love to get married right there and then and to those who are already married would love to renew their vows!  *sigh*

Side view, of the Church, who in the world with great minds could think of building a Church this way?  Definitely NOT me, people have creative minds even way back in the past for sure!  I had my jaw dropped open when I learned that large coral stones where use for the lower level of the church and bricks on the upper levels!  And to add it's "Impressive List",  I was told that this church is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.  Double impressive!



The bell tower near the church sits there like a little guardian to the huge church.  Hannah and myself took the stairs up and we were holding on to our dear life as the steps were original from way back!  But the moment you reach to the topmost level, you forget all your troubles! 

I've read somewhere that the bell tower serves as an observation "deck" by the Katipuneros, as for Hannah and myself, this place serves as a best place to take a shot!


Comes dinner time, we got an  invite for a dinner at Sitio Remedios.  Thanks to the Department of Tourism (DOT) and Mr. Martin S. Valera, the Regional Director of Region 1, for the invite.  The resort Sitio Remedios is almost an hour drive from Fort Ilocandia. The resort overlooks South China Sea *double sigh*


The Scrumptious dinner was served, again thanks to DOT


Our dearest cute Ada with a Banana! *laughs* That seriously rhymes!


Pretty Hannah just finished her meal


Before I end this post!  Contest time once again!  As you all know, I am a beauty blogger so beauty products are definitely a must when I travel  A sneak peek, I've managed to squeeze in a couple of "must take along cosmetics to play makeup with my travels pals.  Would you believe I also taken along my nail art pens and polishes?  Addiction for sure!  


CONTEST TIME for Day 2!
