It’s not only fun to tri in the Philippines – I’ll tell you why :)

Early January, the Philippines’ Department of Tourism launched it’s new slogan. According to the news, the department opted for a slogan that is easily understood and can relate to the a wider audience. Likewise, DOT Secretary Ramon Jimenez said the slogan must answer to the fundimental question, “Why the Philippines?”

May I participate please and use this blog and the new tourism slogan to attract more foreigners to the 7,107 islands we have here in the Philippine archipelago. I have noticed in my stats section that majority of the readers of this blog are from the United States and United Kingdom. So, may I introduce to you some of the best photos chosen why “It’s more fun in the Philippines!”…


This is the very famous “Lechon” or roasted pig. The skin is best crunchy and the meat soft, tender and juicy dipped in a rich sauce. One whole pig that serves 25 to 30 costs about Php6,500 (USD170). However, after consuming ones share of the famous lechon, one has to do planking and more core exercises to relieve the body of all the fat and cholesterol. Best lechon for me – Elar’s Lechon!


Honestly, I have never been to the “Sinulog” Festival in Cebu, but I should experience this soon!


Palawan, isn’t this peaceful?

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
