Are you ready for the ultimate Hundred Islands adventure?

It is the reason why I am excited to go to Hundred Islands. As a little kid, i remember my father passing through the port of the Hundred Islands National Park, but I never really had the chance to ride in a boat and explore Pangasinan’s most prized tourism destination.

What makes this project unique? Well, 100 towns from different parts of the Philippines presents their Unique Dish, and the top 9 cities with most votes will be recognized by 9 best recipes in 9 churches. The project slogan is : “100 Days. 100 Towns. 100 Unique Dishes.”

Since Dagupan City is not on the list, I will be supporting Alaminos City, Pangasinan this time. Familiar? It is the place where the world-famous Hundred Islands Natures Park is located.
