Day 4: Leaving Pagudpod and off to Vigan!

I woke up early this morning and took a shot of Hannah's Beach Resort, Pagudpod before I left for Vigan.  It was really sunny and hot but I am ready as I had my sunblock on!

I've applied it 20 minutes prior to leaving my hotel room and I've given Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 Triple Lightening a test and so far I am quite impressed! 

The weather is getting back to it's hot, sunny state but I don't mind!  I am very excited to see Vigan! 

I've heard so many good things about the place and what made me even more excited is that there is an activity that I can do which I didn't know exist!  Pottery making!!! 

The burnay-making in Vigan was introduced by the Chinese immigrants.  The owner of the pottery is Mr. Go.  His dad owns the pottery place and he started pottery making as early as 12 years old!  He gamely took off his top and demonstrated pottery making, the real one!  I kind a have this picture of Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore!  Thank goodness it was finally erased and changed to Mr. Richard Gere *ahem* image.  Hahaha  I was in awe seeing him in action as he explained to us that using clay pot to store vineger will make it taste better overtime!

Checkout how easy it looks!

The clay amazingly changed its shape effortless

Almost done!  I  was quite impressed that he can answer questions, make a joke, look at us straight in the eye all at the same time while doing this masterpiece!  Thanks to Mr. Go for taking his time to show us the basics of pottery making.  He's a very busy man!

Here's my best stance trying to look like I know what I was doing.  The finish product isn't impressive at all!  Take my word on that!

Off we went to take Kalesa Ride (horse driven carriage).  The name of our horse is Dolly!  So beautiful!

The City of Vigan has more than 150 ancestral houses, structures and historical landmark.  I've heard from this trip that this city was the only surviving colonial town in the entire Philippines.  

Hannah, Ada and myself on a carriage.  We actually went through so much under the sun, looking at photos, it's amazing how our skin color did not change much!

We're not afraid to walk around the oven-heated City of Vigan with the right SPF!

I'll tell you guys more about my adventure on my next post! And please check  back for Day 4 Contest!  I'll be announcing the winners soon!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
