My brother is getting married soon and a new baby is coming too!

So we had this “pamamanhikan”, ( a Filipino tradition where the groom and his family and relatives pays his fiancee a visit to formally ask her family’s blessings; this is where both families discuss about the wedding details as well) in lingayen,pangasinan,at her wife-to-be’s place.

It wasn’t really the traditional “asking of the woman’s family’s blessing”. It was more of 2 families getting together, bonding and just having fun!

Of course,what can you expect from me! Sidetrips….Sidetrips..

You see, whenever I get to a certain place for some personal reasons or by chance, I never fail to take time and get to know the place by doing sidetrips..

My reason,I’m in the place anyway so why not explore and take chances, right?

What’s more greater, I don’t need to pay for my trip and foodies bcoz it’s already provided coz of the whole family’s trip.yey! super like!😀

So we got to see the capitol plaza in Lingayen, the WWII landing memorial site in Lingayen gulf and the Lingayen beach of course!
