Bangui Windmills (Bangui, Ilocos Norte)


Well technically, this is already Day 2 of our Ilocos Adventure and Day 3 of our Batangas-Ilocos Kabaliwang Trip. But unfortunately, 1 day was spent entirely at the road. We reached Vigan at around 8 or 9PMish after a whopping 16hrs of drive from Club Balai Isabel in Batangas to Vigan, Ilocos Sur. Ikaw ba naman magbyahe ng South to North eh! Our poor driver was tired to death by the time we reached Vigan that night. Well all of us are actually too tired. After settling at Cordillera Family Inn, we headed to Café Leona for dinner and then its lights out for everyone. Mahigpit ang driver namin, 4:30 AM ang call time. @_@


Our itinerary is supposedly Vigan-Pagudpud-Laoag. But then again, epic fail ang Vigan namin so we ended up touring Ilocos Norte on our way to Pagudpud.

Of course, no Ilocos Adventure is complete without the Bangui Windmill visit.


It was so hot when we arrived in Bangui. And all of us are always saying that we’ll only spend 5 minutes on each tourist spot para makarami. Kaso waley! Pagdating sa area and once the photo op started, we can’t seem to stop! Not even the blazing sun could stop us from doing our jump shots! Take this as my warning, you’ll see loads of jump shots in this post. Pinili ko pa yan! Kasi ssoooooobbbrrraaaaannng dami talaga. :)

I think no tour is complete without the famous jump shots. Kelangan lang talaga meron eh! Ewan ko ba kung bakit!!!!!!!

The Gang: Ad, Cath, Gelo, Paolo, Me, Kalli and Allaine (the photographer)

The jump shot fail! Sa kinasamaang palad, puro novice ang mga kasama ko sa pagkuha ng jump shot. Eh ako namemorize ko na ata ang perfect way to capture it sa dami ng mga out of town trips ko. At dahil na din siguro nasama ako sa mga photo enthusiasts. But wait till our Laoag trip kasi fast learner lahat ng kasama ko! :) Mas madaming jump shotssssssssss!!!

The famous jump shots! Sarap! Pero sad wala ako!DSCN9253

Hindi ako pumayag na wala akong perfect jump shot. Madaming talon yan! Nakakapagod!!! Madaming ulit hanggang ma-perfect!!


Deadmatology sa tyanis ko! Nakalimutan kong mag stomach in. Ahihihihi…

Alampay shot! Kelangan meron nyan!
Paolo and his perfect jump shot!
Bet ko yung may effect yung hat ni Gelo babe!

Sinusubukan ko yung pang dalagang pilipina na jump shot. Hindi ko na-avail!

Eto para lang akong nahulog. Nyahahahaha!
G.p was able to do the very cute “indian seat” jump shot. Gusto ko sana i-avail. Kaso yung photog ko medyo waley!

Bye bye windmill! Till next time!


  1. Bangui is one of my favorite tourist spots in Ilocos! The best talaga for jump shots with those giant windmills as your background. =D
