Pamalican island is deserted 40 mins off Bohol by boat, where water is sacred, soil were poor, everything from the island are shipped from the mainland, still it’s a place that can homegrow banana and squash, which were our main meal in our dishes. Fish? No kidding, our host kept on asked us what we wanted for lunch, we wondered why he was anxious and thought perhaps he needed time to inform the next boat from the island what to bring, no no no, 5 mins after we announced we want to try whatever local fresh fish there is, we saw our owner with a fish spear heading to the sea. That’s how fresh our fish were!

Enjoy our Pamalican Island food diary! It’s one of my favorite meal in Bohol! Everything so natural!

I still have so much memories to share from the Philippines- food, places to go, Bohol guide, and I haven’t even get to Manila and Makati yet! Learning how to write bilingual post faster is my current homework, I’ll be sure to do a review by the end of the year how this goes. 
The Philippines is really such a nice place for a getaway trip in Asia, I’ve came across photos and posts of more than 5 above friends visiting Bohol, Borocay, Cebu, Coron, Palawan this year already! Don’t miss out this hidden gem in Asia! 

40分鐘的船程可以帶我們到位於薄荷島外海的Pamalican 島,這裏的水很珍貴,土壤很貧瘠,島上的物資都由薄荷島運送過來,雖然天然條件沒有很好,但還是可以種出盤上可看到的今日主食:超好吃的香蕉和節瓜。而魚呢?我們一直很納悶一臉著急樣的老闆幹嘛一直問我們主食要吃什麼,心想是不是要打給從薄荷島來的下一艘船請他們去準備一下食材,但是⋯在我們回覆要吃魚之後,沒過五分鐘就看到老闆拿著魚叉走向海裡去,我們的魚就是這麼的新鮮來著!以上是我們在島上的午餐,是我在薄荷島最喜歡的一餐之一,一切回歸於大自然。



菲律賓真的是放空旅行的好地方,今年已看到超過五位朋友造訪了菲律賓的Bohol, Borocay, Cebu, Coron, Palawan。 這是在亞洲不可錯過的的島嶼桃源噢!

    […] being left on Pamalican, we had the best host greeting us, the greatest captain sailing us, and the most outstanding homegrown food being cooked. I wonder how long will it take us to walk through the island, we did attempt to […]

    are those fried bananas??

    • Reply Tiff September 10, 2016 at 00:49

      Yup they are, but different than the Thai fried bananas. I think Thai fried bananas top with dense milk?

    I’ve never been to the Philippines but this seems like an awesome place to visit. The fish definitely seem very very fresh LOL

      It’s a nice place to visit for vacay, and if you are into diving it’s one of the place to go in Asia.
      Haha, perhaps the freshest fish I’ve ever eaten in my life now!

  • Reply sileas June 27, 2016 at 21:18

    Awesome, this is simply the best way to eat fish! It looks fantastic! Sometimes you don’t need much else than some fresh catch and homegrown fruits to be in food haven right? 😉

    • Reply Tiff September 10, 2016 at 00:52

      Absolutely yes! Homegrown fruits and food fresh off the sea by natural are the best haven brings!
