Loved the whole idea of visiting a place she’s never been to before.  That is, she has been to Pampanga, but usually just when she or her family were on their way to Baguio, never as a destination in itself.

Did dear blog readers know that Pampanga has its own version of talangka (crab roe), that it’s from Guagua, and is said to be even better than the talangka of Bacolod?

Did dear blog readers know that the founder of Lapid’s chicharon, sold near Ateneo, is actually from Guagua, Pampanga?

Did dear blog readers know that the Pampanga halo-halo includes pastillas?

Did dear blog readers know that the best pastillas in the world is made in Magalang, Pampanga?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
