Tricycle, taxi, jeepney, and vans everywhere. My first impression was it is a progressive city and a whole lot busier than Legazpi City, Albay. We rode a tricycle and headed to our rest for the night: Naga Regent Hotel. Probably a review of the hotel in another post! After dropping of our stuff and resting a bit, Ms. +Aileen Apolo sent us an SMS informing us that we should have snacks in her cousins place, Casa Moderna. +Wayne Manuel, +Jomar Tigcal and I got lost because there's a branch near our hotel - we went there first, and after searching for Ms. Aileen to no avail, we asked the waitress and found out that there are five branches of Casa Moderna all over the city!

Plaza Quince MartiresWe decided to walk going to Plaza Quince Martires and hailed a tricycle from there after Wayne and Jomar decided to hack some portals using +Ingress.

Casa ModernaWhen we arrived in Casa Moderna, it was empty. We asked the lady over the counter if there are any chairs at the back. Then, after a minute, Ms. Aileen went out from the door leading to the kitchen! Apparently, her cousin manages the place and their family founded and still owns it. Inside their home, we were exchanging stories ranging from the childhood stories of Ms. Aileen in Bicol to the story of My Husband's Lover over some delicious Palabok, Maja, toasted bread, and Pancit.
