AirAsia in Iloilo: Day Two

AirAsia in Iloilo
What we did: visited Casa Mariquit, tried lapaz batchoy, bought pasalubong, and joined the Parade of Lights!



After covering the Kasadyahan Regional Festival Competition, we headed to Ocean City Seafood Restaurant for lunch. Princess and I devoured their baked oysters, leaving everything, including the crispy tadyang, for everyone else. #priorities

We took photos of some of the other floats before heading over to the AirAsia float.

Of course it was shaped like a plane - what else do you expect? ;)

We hopped on board and handed out AirAsia merch to the spectators - bag tags, t-shirts, ecobags, and pins!
