Exotic Flavours of Enfidha

tunisia-food

I am a travel blogger now but my previous career was as a food critic and I’ve tried to merge my two loves into a life. So when I was given the opportunity to travel to Tunisia, I really didn’t want to write a fluff piece on comparing flights to Palermo (just off of both Tunisia and Italy) versus flights to Enfidha (although I started to consider it because the costs are vastly different), I decided rather to do a little recon on how authentic the food was at the resort I was staying and whether tourists were adopting the local food and using the flavours to spice up their lives.

RAVE Pasig Rainforest Adventure Experience Park

The amphitheater at RAVE of Pasig

It’s funny sometimes that destinations within the neighbourhood can be off our radar I guess it’s the same case with the locals in the provinces. We admire places and their attractions, however for them, they rub it off as they see them everyday. Same case here in Pasig where I live, I never thought our RAVE Pasig Rainforest Park has been getting a lot of interest from the city folks especially this summer vacation.

Bontoc | Discovering Maligcong Rice Terraces and a Wonderful Homestay

The Maligcong Rice Terraces during the pre-planting season

This is where I bid goodbye to my friends Erick and Rocel. Coming from Kalinga. We headed back to Bontoc since the couple would be travelling back to Manila via Baguio. I, on the other hand would be staying in Bontoc to do further exploration. I got used to Bontoc mostly as a transit point to either Sagada, Kalinga or Banaue, but there’s this little upland town called Maligcong that’s only 30 minutes away from Bontoc that captured my curiosity. I heard of equally impressive rice terraces, scenic mountain hikes and cool clime.

The SandBox Alviera, within the 1.125 hectare property of Alviera, is a giant playground for both the young and the young at heart. It got some unique rides and activities geared for group of friends, families or even corporations. We recently get to try these rides just before its public opening this April 12, 2014. And I got a treat for you guys. Read on!
