It was already past 2pm when we dropped by at Sto. Niño Cathedral Parish to start our Pagadian stroll.
After the church, we headed to the Rotonda for a top view of Fajares Ave. and Pagadian Bay. Horseback riding is available at the Rotonda Park but with time against us, we even skipped climbing the top of Rotonda tower.
Our main Pagadian must-visit was Mt. Palpalan and Pulacan Waterfalls… Hiking mountains and chasing waterfalls, whenever possible, always tops our must-do list. Despite differing localities of Palpalan and Pulacan, we managed to visit both.
After consuming more than 2 hours for Mt. Palpalan and Pulacan Waterfalls, we were back at the city proper. The long tricycle ride with hips pressed tightly on my belly implied the need for diet and exercise. Or maybe, Pagadian tricycle designs are not ideal for bellyful person like me. Hahaha!
At the city proper, we finished off the rest on our list, the City Hall, the Rizal Park and Plaza Luz.
It was past 8:00pm when we went out for dinner. We checked for nearby not-so-pricey restaurants but found none so we ended up at Jepoy’s Grill. We were the only costumer that time, maybe too early for the weekend gimmick. But nonetheless, the music of bossanova band as we dine was a great complement to our Pagadian visit.
