A quick browse at the Travel category of Yahoo Philippines brought me to Pangasinan. My seatmate, Mira and I planned the entire trip since we wanted to do some snorkel and tumambay sa tabing dagat.
Luckily, Robert offered his car which saved the group from commuting one PUV to another. We left Manila around 4:30am where Laiza, Mira, Bordz and I came from our last shift of the week. Sleepy and Tired while Robert will drive all the way to Pangasinan for the first time. To be fair, a rule was set that whoever caught sleeping or closes his/her eye will be rewarded by a Sampal (No one ever attempted to sleep all throughout).
It was a long joy ride, thanks to Blue (GPS tracking system) and the Printed scale Bordz had. We arrived to Alaminos safe and sound without experiencing any "Wrong Turn".
Our Hostel for the day was Najera Transient, which is situated near the Port. The room was just perfect for traveler who's into tight budget.
Renting a boat was not a problem since Najera Transient also offers one (accredited by the Association). After securing our belongings, we were off to Hundred Islands.
The Islands - Shots
Their are few Islands in Hundred Islands, 124 islands to be exact, that were inhabited. First stop, Governor's Island know for the overlooking view then off to Quezon's Island for a swim. Then had our snorkeling activities where we had a chance to have a closer look at the clams, school of fish and even clown fish then ending the day trip inside a cave
The entire day was indeed fun though tiring but it was worth it. To end the day, we had our dinner at Maxine By the Sea for some seafood food trip.
The food was delicious however the service was not good. That time, most customers were complaining because the waiting time for the food to be served was way too long.
Few other islands offers additional attraction such us 70 ft jump to the underwater cave at Imelda Island. Snorkeling would be the best activity to do in Hundred Island as it offers rich marine life.
