The original plan was to go to Caramoan on the next day and since it is very windy and the weather is not cooperating we decided not to go, because in order to go there you will need to ride a bus and a boat to the island, since it has a bad weather the sea is most likely wavy. Instead, we went to Naga City proper to buy some pasalubong and hopefully visit some old churches to take pictures. We ride the free shuttle to the main road and then took a bus to the city. It is just 15mins bus ride and you will find yourself near SM Naga since the terminal is just beside it.

Then we ride a motorcycle to Biggs, a popular resto in Naga. The main Biggs is located in between Chowking and McDonalds in the city proper.
The ambience is like 80’s inspired, if you happen to eat in Johnny Rockets, Biggs is like a local version of that. They offer burgers, rice meals, and pasta.
I ordered the most watering burger they have and added bacon on top of that. Lablab also ordered burger but a smaller one. Their burger is fried not grilled so somehow It tastes oily. After our lunch in Biggs, we went back to the bus terminal to buy some pasalubong. We found ourselves on the corner store near CBC Plaza. From baskets to slippers and pili nuts, they have it all, and not only that the t-shirts sold in CWC is half the price on this store, so we bought two shirts for us, some pili nuts, pili tarts and pili keychains. Also, across the street you will find a bakery that makes toasted siopao, we did bought some but in the end they were wasted since I think it will just last for 2 days. So we rode a bus back to the dropped off point of the shuttle and called the front desk to pick us up and went back to our room.

After resting lablab wants to have a massage in front of the lake but that night is a rainy night so we waited for the rain to stop and then go the kubo near the lake and swimming pool and have our massage. Our dinner is again in the clubhouse and ate pizza spaghetti. I would recommend their pizza, it is thin crust and the cheese used is not mozzarella but just ordinary quickmelt but taste good. After our dinner, we head our way to our room to have a nice sleep and pack our things for our flight early next day.
Again the weather is not in favor of what we will do, it is a rainy morning the wind is much stronger, we went to the front desk to return the key to our room and rode the shuttle to the airport, and as expected the flight was cancelled, with the earliest possible flight is next day we decided to just ride a bus to Cubao. So we travel to the bus terminal and ride a bus towards Manila. It took us 9 hours in the bus to Manila passing through Camarines Norte, Quezon Province, Batangas and Laguna. Overall the experience is awesome, a lot of new things tried and new places and food tasted. CWC is highly recommendable, if you are on a shot budget I would recommend this place, although there are a lot of foreigners the prices of the food and accommodation are budget friendly. Maybe next time we will visit Naga the weather will be at its most pleasant day and try to go to Mt. Isarog and Caramoan.
