For lunch we ate at a restaurant called Kubo-Kubo (referencing to the native house of the Philippines which is a small hut made of bamboo and nipa (palm tree) leaves). You can eat either inside their restaurant or out in the gardens where you'd choose your own nipa hut to eat in. Very neat. (Photos attached). Typical Filipino food was served. Yum.
Then we hiked up to the People's Park in the Sky where there's an imitation of the Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer statue
On the way home, you'd see lots of vendors selling fruits - lots of pineapple, mangosteens, bananas, jackfruit, Japanese and white corn, star fruit, etc. There were also furniture makers along the side of the road selling wooden furniture made from local wood materials. Very neat.
