Had it not for the awesome peeps I'm with on this trip, I could have called my second day a perfect day and retired quietly. I was so beat! But it might be my adrenalin kicking or possibly the Alaxan with the fastest relief I had at midday (yeah, that's how its gonna be when you're 40, lol) either way, after crossing rivers and trekking T'daan Kini, I was still full of beans and all so disposed for another round of tilapia indulgence. Oh, God help me!

We were served merienda cena by the lake and now missing those moments laughing out loud our lazy time before dinner. Ilonggo anecdotes courtesy of Sir Jon. Oh, for the love of laughter, nahidlaw nako sa imu sige kadlaw, hahaha!
|The Twitter Tree.|
I call this the Twitter tree. Was wondering why these birds get so rowdy about the hashtag #prettyme, they sure can't get over me, hahaha... But seriously, if you're that someone who would come down here to slow down, smell the flowers, listen to the birds and the bees, then this a good spot for you to do it. Just note of the time so won't miss hear them sing. Birds sure can sing, trust me.

And dinner was served ... and just as what we've expected, tilapia overload! First on the table;
|Pinalupad na Tilapia|
Pinalupad na Tilapia. English translation - flying tilapia. If you haven't heard of one, now you're seeing one ready for action, lol. I like how they expertly carve the tilapia meat to make it look like wings after deep frying. It's comes with sweet and sour sauce and set on fried, crispy sotanghon. So good!

|Tinolang Native Chicken.|
Tinolang Native Chicken. Forgive my preconceived notion, but Ilonggos really have the best hands in cooking tinolang native manok served in superlative form. Kanamit-nami guid sang timpla. I luv it!
After dinner, we're all happy, full and wordless bloggers waiting to be drove out to Monte Cielo, when heavy rain began pouring. It was my first rain experience in Lake Sebu and I can feel the rain's anger, it was pouring so hard I was so afraid the roof of the hall might fall off, lol. But it stopped shortly and we bid thank you to our generous hostess for the warm and sumptuous dinner.
Thank you so much Estares Lake Resort for the warm welcome and for the delightful dinner. 'Till we visit again!
