Fish Be With You...

Habang nasa bukid ako, ipinasyal ako ng aking mga hosts sa isang resto na "malapit daw" sa bahay nila.

An hour later, nakarating kami sa "halfway to the north" of Luzon: Ang Isdaan sa Gerona, Tarlac.

From Manila, siguro mga 3-4 hours ang biyahe papunta sa lugar na ito.

Medyo weird nga na may ganitong klaseng kainan sa kalagitnaan ng kawalan.

First of all, it's dotted with these ginormous buddhas and Aztec-like statues.

I mean, why in the world would they build this in the middle of nowhere right? Pero don't get me wrong, I love it, yun nga lang, weird siya. Ang may-ari nga pala nitong resto na ito ay si Lola Chit, na nagmamay-ari din sa Barrio Fiesta.

They also have several life-size statues of famous celebrities scattered around the place, for photo ops, I guess.

They have this section wherein you can feed the koi fish.

And koi fish they have in abundance. Kahit yung floating kubo na kinainan namin, napapaligiran ng koi.

There's also this section in the sprawling resto wherein you can play a game and win a prize.

You're supposed to cross this narrow walkway, manage to step over about six huge conch shells blocking your path, and get to the other end.

Of course, while you're doing this, several giant monkey statues will be spitting and pissing water at you.

Ito yung mga spitting and pissing monkeys:

May mga penis sila na nag-sasaboy ng tubig sa sinumang tatawid sa harap nila. Hindi ko kinunan ng pic yung mga penis kasi nadyahe ako dahil pinagmamasdan ako ng mga probinsiyano sa paligid. Obviously, hindi sila sanay makakita ng matabang bakla.

Kapag nagawa mong tumawid, you win a bucket of live fish. Wow. So worth it.

They also have the Tacsiyapo Wall.

Pwede kang magbasag ng mga pitchers and plates and glasses sa wall para lang makapaglabas ng aggression.

Pero bawal magmura, which for me kinda defeats the purpose of the activity. 15P ang isang pitcher and same price for a plate. Ang Tacsiyapo ay isang expression, according to a waiter, parang punyemas or putangina.

For the kids, they can get a free ride on a cart being pulled by an extremely dirty tupa.

Meron pang mga waiters and chefs na kakantahan ka habang kumakain.

We ordered sinigang na baboy, seafood karekare, and halo-halong sinugba na may kasamang fried frogs.

Thank god out of season ang frogs noon. Super sarap ng food, pero feeling ko kahit piniritong ipis pa ang ihain sa akin at that time masasarapan ako ng sobra kasi naman ang haba ng biyahe papunta sa isdaan kaya gutum na gutom kami. Within fifteen minutes nasinghot na namin lahat ng nasa la mesa.
