I remember a friend who, for a valid reason, vacationed in the Philippines for only three days. Since my December vacation was deferred for a great reason, I can’t help but sometimes think of doing the same. In a whirlwind, I wish to accomplish all of these (in random order), aside from the obvious:
- Eat Jollibee chickenjoy and palabok, try the newest item, i.e. chicken bbq
- Buy from our trusted Manong who sells street taho
- Lunch at Kanin Club in Paseo De Sta. Rosa
- Have a DIY Binondo Tour, in case Binondo Food Wok will not coincide with my schedule
- Buy a one-year supply of hopia. Heehee. Less than a week yata ang expiry.
- Dinner at Sentro and try its corned beef sinigang among other things
- Eat at JT’s Manukan, Metro Manila branch; I visited its first branch in Bacolod ages ago
- Devour a paella (paella negra preferrably) in Alba Resto in Makati
- Streetfood trip (place to be decided, any suggestions?)
- Swim and surf at Club Manila East, Rizal
- Buy quality yet cheap shoes and other footwear in Liliw, Laguna
- Side trip to churches of Pakil, Paete, Liliw and Nagcarlan
- Visit Rizal’s house in Calamba
- Watch District 9 and Kimi Dora, if still being shown in theaters
- Do a little shopping in my favorite malls in Metro Manila
- Visit my favorite facial centre
- Copy to the external drive the copycats of Boys Over Flowers and other series to catch up
- And a lot more
But will these fit in three days? 😀
Most likely, I’d stay home to savour time with the family and relatives (and friends: in case they are lucky enough to know my whirlwind trip), chatting while pigging out endlessly.
What about you? What would you do in a blast and breeze?
Note to self: BACK TO REALITY. I’m here in UAE. 😉

did you notice that the first 9 items in your list are food related? baka maging dambuhala ka pagbalik mo UAE! 🙂
you can do it in 3 days…super paspasan nga lang! 🙂
Nahahalatang matakaw ako. Haha!
I’d never pass a free trip to a luxurious island. hehe
For street food, I’d say to around U-Belt, or anywhere around schools. My SIL was raving about this 4-piece siomai at Php20 that’s really, really good in UST.
I love Sentro’s Rated GG.
Parang mahirap yan in three days, pero siguro kaya naman.

I read good reviews about Rated GG. Wishes, wishes! Heehee.
Try going home for 3 days! 🙂 I bet that’ll be fun. 🙂 Wow.. too many plans.. too little time. 🙂 pero ang sarap ngang gawin lahat yan! 😛 I’m planning to try to work abroad.. maybe SG next year? But with your post suddenly I realized “OMG.. andami kong mamimiss pala! :” Oh well… Bahala na. 🙂

You’d really miss a lot. But if there’s a chance, try to work abroad “for a while” while you’re still young. But wait, what about Arvic? Heehee. 😉
3 days mo lang lahat gagawin yan? paspasan galore, este kainan galore pala. hehehe. uy, masarp yong chicken bbq ng jollibee.

Wish list lang yan!:-D
Good luck with the list! Take note that traffic in Manila can bog down any itinerary!

Yeah, there must be a note to this wish list to read as “allowance for fortuitous events not yet accounted”. 😀

ang galing.. makagawa nga rin ng ganito.. gandang post po..
for three days, i should say—spend one day with your family, food trips on the second day, visit churches and shop in Liliw on the 3rd day.:P

Three days is too short a time for me. Travel pa lang ubos kaagad ang dalawang araw. But I went home before for seven days. I went to my fiancee’s parents to assure them that I’ll marry their daughter. It was postponed kasi because of my work. >: D

naku sakin di ko kaya yun..sa oras palang para sa mga paabot at pahatid ng mga kasama ko dito dahil pag may uuwi, ihahatid ang mga pasalubong sa mga bahay bahay nila, kundi man magkikita pa kayo sa isang lugar…siguro mga 1week pwede..:)

Hubs and I did Vancouver in 28 hours, brimming with spots to see and good eats too.
Yap, I did notice your list was more on the food side. Miss mo pagkaing Pinoy no?
.-= Photo Cache´s last blog ..So Long Patrick =-.
pwede ka pa din maglibot ng Pilipinas nun in 3 days. Kung ako i will go sa bohol, cebu and bacolod.
.-= upto6only´s last blog ..PHOTOHUNT: Electric =-.
3 days? uhm… good enough to explore an island.
.-= lawstude´s last blog ..Dalton Pass on a Clear Day =-.
All that in 3 days! Supergirl, hellow!
If I have a three-day vacation in PI, I’ll spend it with my family for sure.
Tapos we’ll eat out pero hindi naman sa ganun kadaming restaurants (wag bang pagpahingahin ang tyan?!).
Tapos we’ll just watch movies sa bahay and talk and chat and chat some more.
Tapos…tapos na ang 3 days!

hmmm… three days is really too short! hehe. But definitely my list would include eating sisig (from dencio’s or gerry’s) and at luk yuen (i love love love their panfried pork and shrimp). Puro pagkain haha
.-= kreez´s last blog ..Final Trimester Begins =-.
If only one can stretch time like what happened at the movie groundhog day, no? Mmm… food trip! Sounds like fun! =)

wooo… if i go 3 days it would be kind of an RR leave and I won’t be seeing family because frankly, 3 days wouldn’t be enough for them hehe 🙂 3 days just for myself would be great – can someone send me a ticket 😉

That’s a long list for a three day trip. Baka sa mall palang ubos na time mo..hehehe! But I like your list. Food definitely tops my list everytime I am back in Manila =)
