The morning after IFEX 2009 saw us on the road. 1st stop was TJ in Bulacan for his daughter's bday. We were too early and looks like TJ had a sizeable group in the rare fruits members....so we decided to socialize with him another time.
I developed a bad case of flu and was feeling under....so better to get comfortable inside the car :)
2nd stop was Nueva Ecija to visit the brooder for this weekend's loading. Another grower to be visited was busy ranging a batch so he missed the call as we were passing by his town...well next time then.
Proceeded to Baguio for the night. Burnham Suites is worth your money and offers comfortable rooms.
Next morning was Baguio growers. I love this place....as the entrepreneurs are vibrant and well motivated! On the way to Ilocos Sur, we visit another grower in La Union.
Vigan is where we are based in Ilocos Sur as we have a Solraya branch. Got our usual room at our Vigan Plaza hotel...
Went to Abra the next day to visit our growers and picked up Jojie Lim who went to her friend in Abra too. Schedules are matched when you guys want to meet, even when all calendars go wayward at times.
Plans made, talks agreed on...let's see where they take us the next days ahead....
