10 Things To Do in Clark and Angeles City in 4 Hours

Yesterday, Jonjie had a visitor from Malolos, Bulacan...Ms. Icecycles Florentino. She was one of the members of Mapua Dabarkads. She took a UV Express Van from Malolos and Jonjie picked her up at Dau Bus Terminal. She arrived at around 10:30 am.

At 12:00 pm, we had our lunch courtesy of Jonjie and Ate Bev in our humble abode: Baby Back Ribs, Baked Stuffed Green Bell Peppers, Potato Salad with Raisin Bread and Fruit Salad in Light Syrup for Dessert.

We visited this Blessed Sacrament three times already but I am still in awe...of the peace and serenity that it radiates.  With the calming sound of flowing water and the gentle swoosh of the bamboo leaves just outside the chapel.


6. Shop at Nepo Mall

IMG_8794Perfumes, bags, clothes, shoes...name it and they have it at Nepo Mall. Everything at low prices...and if you are good at bartering then it can still be lowered. 


7. Buy pasalubong at Rosing’s Pastry Shop

Yema Balls...one of my favorites. They will only make it upon order...so you have to wait for several minutes or come back later.
We've been introduced to Rosing's pastries four years ago by my sister-in-law, who ironically is from Las Pinas. She said one of her colleagues mention it and together we searched for its location. They have all kinds of pastries which, up to now, are being made the old-fashion way.


8. Pass The Quad at Nepo Center

The Quad at Nepo Center was dubbed as “the biggest convergence of locally grown restaurant brands”. It is the new "in" place among locals and tourists alike as it offers the best of Kapampangans' cuisine. We dined in one of the restaurant named Downtown Cafe and for the details, please visit Just the Two of Us, Downtown Cafe @ The Quad


9. 40 Kph Leisure Drive at Air Force City
