     After we visited the Cagbalete Island our group decided to change our route instead of Lucena we will take the Lucban bound route and to try the famous delicacy in Lucban the longganisa fortunately sir Irog suggested to visit the Kamay ni Hesus and I became interested because many devotees visit this place especially for those who are sick to heal from God because of their faith. As ma’am Weng said for those who only interested will join to visit the Kamay ni Hesus and as respect to the others we didn’t force to join the others because not all the participants were Catholic and others were tired. I never hesitate if I will go or not, I guess this is God purpose why we change our route, to remember him and to be grateful all the blessings we received, that we met new friends through our adventures.

     My buddy asked me a good place where we can spend our summer weekend getaway, I suggested to her the Cagbalete Island because of its long stretch of powdery white sand during low tide that I saw in the photos of other blogs. I read some blogs of what’s the best resort where we can stay that can offer comfortable and affordable price of accommodation and good facilities and I found out Villa Cleofas was the most recommended by the travelers who were visited the Cagbalete Island and offers many activities like hiking, horseback riding, volley ball and kayaking. I texted one of the owner sir Tonet for our reservation because I’m expecting a crowd of tourist during weekends and the summer vacation is already near.

     The group met at JAC Liner Kamias terminal near GMA Kamuning fortunately none of us were late because the last trip of JAC Liner bound to Lucena is 11PM, at 2:00AM we arrived in Lucena grand terminal because we will catch the 4AM first trip of mini bus (NCR Rieton Lines) going to Mauban Quezon, for almost 1hour of travel time from Lucena to Mauban.

     Saturday morning past 8 o’clock my phone beeped, I read the message “saan tayo ngayon?” I never expected someone will ask me where my destination for that day. I replied to my buddy “hindi ko alam” and she replied to me “ayaw ko masayang ang oras ko ngayong weekend”. Baka magtampo kung tanggihan ko kanyang request. I want a cheap travel and also educational, I texted my PTB friends who visited the Paco Park fortunately all of them replied to me and they taught me how to get there.

Company Profile

     4M’s  -  Masarap,   Mura,  Malinis,  Maganda,   these are the guiding business principles of  Jay-J’s Chicken Inasal Restaurant in which caters from class A to C of our society.

     Jay-J’s The Filipino Restaurant’s menu not just covers Grilled Chicken but also a variety of Filipino dishes - from seafood, to poultry, to meat.  Most of them are owners family dishes recipes that are enhanced to the taste of our customers.  We do not only assure that the food taste better than home cooking, but we make it affordable to all.

     Along with the appetizing dishes, what makes it enjoyable to dine is its restaurant ambience.  Truly Filipino setting though modernized zen-style, the walls are adorned with bamboo to create a homey, even provincial ambience. We are looking forward for more Jay-J’s The Filipino Restaurant nationwide or even world wide.


My Personal Review


     After our short visit in Wawa Dam, when we arrived in Quezon City were looking a good place to eat and to celebrate birthday of our travel/climb buddy ma’am Racky fortunately ma’am Weng remembered a restaurant offers a scrumptious Filipino delicacies in Timog but she can’t remember the name, she instructed the cab driver gave the directions. When we arrived in the restaurant we were greeted by their accommodating staffs.
