With stomachs bursting from our afternoon refreshments at Julie’s Halo-Halo, we again went off to another feast; this time, with a grander view at the rooftop of Rizal Rural Bank building. Invited by the who’s who of Dipolog City, we came to feast on the city’s specialty done in a unique twist.
A long table was set at the roof deck and the dish for the afternoon was Spanish sardines-flavored carbonara. Bits of olives were mixed with the pasta and the whole thing is sprinkled with the fish that Dipolog City is famous for. The traditional creamy flavor of the carbonara blended so well with the slightly spicy and salty flavor of the sardines that it was an instant hit.
The rest of the afternoon was spent chatting about the city of Dipolog; the best places to eat out in, the places to visit, the celebrities who frequent the place, a few juicy gossips here and there and plans for the future of the city.
The RRB building sits high along the center of the city providing a panoramic view of Dipolog. A pair of binoculars is set up along the corner of the building and we can see every detail of the city from an eagle’s perspective.
Lush coconut trees, the bustling streets, the regal clock tower of Andres Bonifacio College; everything was wonderfully beautiful in the warm afternoon light. It was a golden.
Just as we were leaving, a rainbow appeared on the horizon near the Dipolog Cathedral, beautiful and poeti; a fleeting but delightful exclamation to our brief panoramic tour of Dipolog City.
