Feeling Thailand

Thailand?
Thailand?Thailand?
Thailand?
Thailand?

Ambo, Ronnie sa Tarlac lang yan. hehehe.

These photos were taken at Isdaan last December 27. It's a themed restaurant slash park located along the national highway in Gerona, Tarlac.

It's suppose to carry a Pinoy theme, but the presence of the Buddhas make it look quite Thailand-ish. Nevertheless, the place was great. We dined in on one of the huts, which for me are more Thai-inspired rather than Bahay-Kubo.


The huts and the walkways are floating, which are made of 5 layers of bamboos.

You can see fish, everywhere.


We saw the apologetic Tita Cory hanging around. She asked for a photo-opp.
If you're traveling, you can see this signage from the national highway.
The very prominent gigantic anitos too.

How's the food? I was too busy admiring the views that I forgot about the food.
It's actually very Barrio Fiesta. Look at the menu:

Spending time with college friends rarely happens. That day, Joyce just arrived from Dubai, and we made sure that we all see each other. She's back in the desert now. Tine gave birth to a baby girl 5 days later. Gyland is busy with his new project.

Me?

alam mo, nakarating na kami dyan. two times pa talaga. ang sarap ng pagkain. tapos the kids enjoyed feeding the kois. kakatakot nga lang, kahit na may binibigay na life vest.

tapos may mga kumakanta pa dyan na ibat ibat banda. may pumunta ba sa inyo? may mga impersonators at kung anong drama. tapos ang alam ko ang daming gimik din dyan e... recommended yang place na yan!

Ely said...

kengkay, ako din nagpakain ng mga isda, parang bata? hehe

may pumunta nga, kinantahan kami. LOL. Wala ung mga impersonators, siguro masiyado pa maaga. Recommended nga!

kengkay said...

bumalik ako kasi alam mo bang i didnt notice yung mga buddha nila nung nagpunta kami dyan? bakit kaya, hehe. andyan kami nung 1006, baka dagdag na lang din kasi wala din si tita cory dati e

Ely said...

kengkay, pinuntahan mo talaga? hehe. Sabi nga nung barkada ko na taga Gerona, bago lang ata mga Buddha. Tas, nag-eexpand ulit sila...meron na rin malaking ulo ng kalabaw. LOL
