Food Trip Philippines - Part 2 - My San Pablo

There’s only one other place in the world I call home.

Located a couple of hours south of Manila is the city of San Pablo. It is my mother’s hometown. It is where I grew up. It is where I met my future wife. It is my other home.

Otherwise know as “The City of Seven Lakes” it boasts seven lakes within its confines. These are Bunot, Calibato, Mohicap, Palakpakin, Pandin, Sampalok and Yambo lakes.

On a cloudless day the lakes are visible as your plane approaches NAIA. I also found out today that you also get a spectacular view of the lakes from Mt. Kalisungan and Tayak Hill.
