I have a weird fascination for local peryas. I am so drawn to those temporary carnivals set-up at local barangay fiestas you sometimes see around the city. (FYI, Star City is not included in my list–I went there a few years ago and it’s so sosyal!!) I’m talking about peryas with game booths where you can win canned goods, chocolates, and CASH PRIZES (beat that, Enchanted Kingdom!), with rides that actually make you fear for your life. We spent last long weekend in Subic, and inside the base is a huge carnival, open all-year round, and minus the territorial beer-bellied tambays that you might usually encounter in the local neighborhoods.
We drove from QC to Subic in less than 2 hours, thanks to SCTEX.The best time to go on a roadtrip is during sunset. Amazing scenery!
