It has always been a struggle for me to shop in Cebu when it comes to finding eccentric patterns on apparel. And from a recent business meeting, a new stylish business partner (Something for you, guys to look forward in the coming post), told me to check Scotch & Soda because he distributes it in his Cebu store.
And I DIED!
These are some of my personal favorites from their collection. Actually, I love the whole collection.
I love the choice of color combinations to the patterns and print. Just perfect and now, I’m excited to come back to Cebu after this sudden Manila trip (another AMAZING post to share in the future).
I must say, this year is starting very good!
Thank you, Lord for the blessings! In Your Glory!

Further to the North, we went and reach Pagudpud.
Strong South China Sea winds and the gush of waves as it hits the beach was the backdrop of this beautiful scenario.
There, you can see windmills, turning and converting.
They say if you were to eat in Ilocos, you have to try their Empanada.
Theirs is totally different from any other Empanada that I have tasted. They first prepare the dough, fill it up with cabbage, their famous longganiza, raw egg, and cheese then have it deep fried giving that crunch as you bite through the soft filling.
Looking at this photo makes me want to eat it again.
More to come.
The last stop of the day was Fort Ilocandia
It is a resort and hotel which was known to be only built by Former President Ferdinand Marcos for his daughter’s reception on her wedding day.
There are three huge chandeliers that glisten from the ceiling when you enter the main lobby. And when you head to your rooms, you can see the red brick architecture of the resort and further in the distance is the South China Sea.
As day become night, the stars come out to play, and what a perfect way to enjoy it with a bonfire.

Next to our itinerary was to visit the Malacanang of the North which was the residence of Former President Ferdinand Marcos and his family whenever he decided to visit his Ilocos Hometown.
As you enter the palace, you start to imagine the days when these walls were used to welcome delegates from all parts of the world, the lavish parties, the beautiful gowns and actually think of what secrets they may hold.
And in this residence was where President Ferdinand Marcos declared the infamous Martial Law.
Further into the halls, you will see a stunning view of the lake and a vast golf range
More to come.
