My Brand new Honda CBR 150R PGM FI

After a thorough elimination process, going through several bikes – Bajaj Rouser 220, Yamaha FZ16, among others…

Got a new bike.

Not sure how this will fit when I’m on my “Rides and Touring” mode since it’s a sport bike (Givi Side Bags perhaps?), but it sure damn looks good, and fast!

Please welcome Badong – my brand new Honda CBR 150R PGM FI Sport bike.

Where to eat in Cavite: Kainan sa Balsa

During one of my most recent roadtrips, I encountered a roadside restaurant in Bacoor, Cavite…it looked interesting enough to merit a second look. There was a huge poster at the entrance describing what the dining experience inside is. The concept was strikingly familiar to the original Kamayan sa Palaisdaan in Tayabas, Quezon.

I figured that since it got a 2nd look from me, it probably deserved a visit sometime very soon.

With my Kymco Super 8 in tow, Belle and I went to Kainan sa Balsa.

This is what will greet you upon entering. Good food…

Welcoming 2012 – Solo ride to the Heart of the Philippines

Welcoming 2012 – Solo ride to the Heart of the Philippines

Wasn’t quite sure which would be a nice place to welcome the new year…I decided to set my sights on going to what they call the province that is in the heart of the Philippines – Marinduque.

Thanks to the inspiring story of crimson722, I knew this would be a nice place to explore for the 1st time, on a scooter.

Not sure how many days I would need to explore the island since I wanted to do a loop so I filed a long leave anyway.

Day 1, left home around 7 am… passed by the Old National Highway from the West Service Road … Muntinlupa – San Pedro – Calamba – Sto. Tomas then arrived at Lucena roughly 3 hours later. Got lost a little bit while in the Lucena town proper, but after doing some rounds, finally found my way to the Dalahican Port. Checked in my bike at the PPA, then the Coast Guard, then bought a ticket from Montenegro to have me and my bike board the barge. Spent 900+ for this one way trip. Pretty expensive if you ask me since I was only expecting it to be around 600+ for the fare.

The Angono Petroglyphs via C6 / Taytay Road

Photobucket

A National Treasure, The Angono Petroglyphs is the oldest known work of art in the Philippines. There are 127 human and animal figures engraved on the rockwall dating back to 3000 BC. These inscriptions clearly show stylized human figures, frogs and lizards along with other designs that may have depicted other interesting figures but erosion may have caused it to become indistinguishable.
