Summer To-Do List in Dagupan City

And just like that, summer season officially starts in the Philippines. We can feel the heat here in Dagupan City! You wake up soaked in sweat and you're already feeling like getting in the shower, but you just got there. Haha! Bikini body or not; Dad Bod or abs of steel.. you don't fucking care anymore. You take that shirt off anyway and wear that panty-shorts of yours. Everybody lookin' but they not hatin'. Ang init sa Pinas eh!!

But ALL IS WELL, sabi nga ni Pochacho. And because I think I'm obliged to talk about things and share this to-do list with you guys, I hope you still bear in mind.. kanya-kanya tayo ng trip. You might find some boring or total childish bullshit, like the sago-straw fight kids used to do during my time, like decades ago. Charot! Wherein you buy a five-peso 'sago palamig' or in English 'sweet tapioca pearl summer drink.' Charrr! Packaged in a special palamig plastic with, probably, recycled plastic straws. You sip and leave a few pearls in the straw as your ammo, you be alert and be ready to blow any time -the equivalent of pulling a gun's trigger. Every breath counts, so take this very seriously, don't laugh and breathe with your mouth if you don't want to choke on it. Head shot is okay, but ear shot is way better. It gets your enemy every time, but parental guidance is advised. Takes a lot of training, you know. 

Hi Mr. Pochaho! Idol/Crush, you had me at papatas. Charrr!
On a more serious note, there's another reason you should all go to Bonuan Tondaligan Beach. But first, shout out to those college students who have endless drinking sessions in the cottages there, and to the vendors who give special student discounts. Hahaha. As long as you guys do it after class and you finish college sober. Hmm. I'm being too honest here, rated PG na naman. Haha!

So yeah, as I was saying.. you should guys check out mural paintings by the Biskeg Pangasinan artists. You drive to Bonuan Tondaligan and ask where the spot is, and everyone knows. The spot is an abandoned office space, there used to be just walls standing there and beach grass. But they've cleaned up the area and voila, instant location for Instagram worthy photos. Take extra care though, as there are shards of glasses and beer bottles everywhere. Please take note, dear city government officials - OPLAN walang bubog na daan. Charot!


Syempre, let's not leave the beach behind. I can say that Bonuan Tondaligan beach is now cleaner compared to before, and if you don't want to go for a swim you can just yah know.. take pictures and tampisaw.. in English - Instagram & Chill. Hahaha. Or Instagram & Tempe-saw. Charr. Alam ko ingles nun noh, ginoogle ko. Tampisaw is to wade in the water. O ha, GMT (Google Mo Tanga!) Joke!

The best time to go to the beach is in the morning at 6AM - 9AM, you need fresh air lalo mga sakitin. And then, of course, in the afternoon at 4PM to 6PM to watch the sunset. Because sometimes guys, sometimes all we need is Vitamin Sea yah know? 

Thank you #SocialMediaMan Simon Vistro for this photo haha #WhatsUpDagupanMan
What else can you do here? Ahh! Since you're in Bonuan, there is the famous Matutina's restaurant that all balikbayans and local tourist go to, to eat fresh Bangus and other seafood. Dagupan is famous for our milk fish or Bangus. And speaking of the devil, Dagupan Bangus Festival is fast approaching! Click here to see the schedule of events. There are a lot of activities to do here this summer, especially because of the festival. Plus, I am so looking forward to the first ever Up North Music Festival on April 23! Watch out for LVLYGREY x UNMFDagupan - make sure to get updates on these Facebook pages: LVLY GREY, UNMFDagupan, Pixelhub Creative, Senyorita and What's Up Dagupan.


Special shout out rin to everyone, please stay hydrated. We're always thirsty pag summer, or at least I am. Always. As a matter of fact, I'm writing this here at Yellow Tree Cafe. YTC is still the best place to be when you're craving for milk tea. My favorite is Hazelnut milk tea with Oreo sinker. So don't expect me to have bikini body this year, I love good food and drinks too much. Try again next year. Hahaha! Shout out to boss Chester. Haha. Share mo to ah. Charot!


Madami, madami pa. This post does not include other things like: ligo sa batcha this summer, outing with friends na hindi natutuloy, reunion with high school classmates pero walang budget, palamig sa mall kasi aircon, start your own iced candy/iced water business, barbeque business, get drunk, summer flings, new hairstyle new me this summer, hugot and more. 

Okay, so, gora na ako.. I have to cross out other things on my To-Do List rin. Char! 
Take time to rest, pray, repent and reflect this coming Holy Week.
