From Manila I rode a bus for 2 hours to get to Batangas Port. I waited for 3 hours for the boat to leave. Then it took us 10 hours travelling on calm seas to get to Romblon Island. When we arrived in Romblon Island I wanted to see the world of famous Romblon Marble and bang my head onto it. ANG HABA NG BYAHE!!!
Anyways, here are 14 reasons why I should not bang my head to a marble.
1. Hunt and eat the Boknoy
Boknoy is a type of siopao that is currently only found in Romblon Island. The difference between the boknoy from the usual asado and bolabola flavored siopao is the sauce. Boknoy siopao already has a sauce inside so one could just eat it without the messy application of siopao sauce. If you want to know how good it is, in my visit to Romblon province I ate a total of 15 pieces of these.
2. Go inside St. Joseph Church
There’s an old church in the Poblacion of Romblon Island and the inside is marble-ous! There’s also a bell tower on its side.
3. View the sunset at Fort San Andres
Only a 20 minute walk and climb of stairs from the port one may reach an old spanish watchtower. Frankly, the place is not well maintained and there already residents around it that hides the other facilities of the watchtower. But still it is a great place to see the town especially the sunset.
