Kusina Salud. The place is known for its Pinoy-French style cuisine made famous by Chef Pol Poblador and his wife, Nina Tesoro Poblador. Known for their authentic menu with a local flavor, I will show here the ambience of the place. The food photos are all over the net, so there is no need for me to emphasize its sumptuous specialities. They also have a Day Spa.
It is located at 285 Brgy Sta Cruz, Putol, San Pablo City, 83 km from Manila. You can take a Lucena bus, tell the driver to take you down at Kusina Salud (there's a big signage) then take a tricyle and you'll be delivered safely to this "not-so-secret" paradise.

Puerto Princesa. One of the cleanest cities in the world. The city government's anti-littering campaign is so successful that every local resident put into their hearts that garbage should only be put on the thrash bin and nothing else! You don't see candy wrappers or cigarette butts on the streets! There is a huge penalty for anyone who litters!
The island is preserved like a "virgin." No commercial establishments. All peace and quiet. Throw me at a beach and I'll be gone in a snap---snorkelling and swimming! I'm a Pisces. A tip: throw a piece of bread and different kinds of colorful fishes will swamp over you and gorge your "offering." We become friends instantly!
FYI, I used a Lomo Fisheye No. 2 for the Puerto Princesa trip. For Kusina Salud, just my old reliable N73 Nokia cellphone :)
