Bicol 2014

I visited the Bicol Region, my father's mother's hometown, from April 16-20. My grandmother's town is called Castilla, Sorsogon, but we didn't stay there because she feared the place after witnessing countless deaths of Japanese soldiers back in the 1940s. By the way, we call my grandmother Mamay, and she's now 87 years old.

Below are some pictures I took of our awesome vacay:

Cagsaua Bell Tower - the only remains of the Cagsaua Church which was buried deep down by lahar/lava

Fresh fruit shake with chili juice

The locals use the nearby stream to wash clothes
