If you were born in the 1800s and doesn’t know what “brunching” or “brunch” is, it’s a two-word combination of breakfast and lunch, probably originated by lazy people who eats breakfast or lunch between 10 in the morning and 12 noon.
If you’re in Iligan, you better brunch at Aruma Coffee Lounge. Don’t be intimidated by this coffee shop, because the foods here are not as expensive as other coffee shops. The serving size in their coffee and other beverages are larger compared to other coffee shops in the city.
For cake lovers, you should select Banoffee cake (P79.00) like one below and Magma cake.
If you want some serious eating, you get the tasty Clubhouse sandwich (P149.00) and below the delicious Pasta Aruma (P109.00)
My favorite, the clubhouse sandwich.
Am I making you hungry? If yes, then quickly head to its location at De Leon Street. This is near to Galaxy Merchandise store or Unitop. Here is a location of Aruma Coffee Lounge.
It’s unfortunate that they don’t have a website, and their Facebook page isn’t constantly updated, but here is their telephone number: (063) 221 7913
Eat Iligan is probably a first in Iligan City.
Basically, it’s a food promotional tour, wherein participating restaurants or any type of food shops in the city will offer their food to invited bloggers or food writers from different parts of the country, to munch their delicious food and then tell the whole world about it through a write up, video or photos.
This will be on July 2 and 3 this year. I know this is a late post, but Iligan Bloggers Society already posted this on the site last June 4.

I finally did my own street food challenge! I ate the fried chicken skin for the first time. The street vendor is located just beside St. Michael’s College.
Luck is on my side, this chicken skin is delicious.
Finally, visited Tedts Diner’s new outlet at Quezon Avenue, just a few meters from their former main restaurant, literally a stone’s throw away. I’ve been wanting to get inside for weeks since it opened last February 23. I have two reasons, to read my book and and try their matcha shake.
The new outlet is somewhat a bit smaller than their previous one. Basically, it has two dining spaces, separated by the order counter.
Beautiful legs + Delicious Matcha Shake = Heaven!
It’s my first to taste a matcha shake or any food flavored or mixed with a matcha. This shake has a natural matcha, not synthetic. I sipped everything , it’s so creamy and so good.
Thank you Tzaddi for these truffles!

To make things clear first, we didn’t climb Mount Agad-agad, it’s some Luinab mountain, which at the peak of it can be seen the highest mountain in Iligan.
Since my residence is in Tominobo, I had to wake up at 4:00am for a hiking or running at a small mountain Barangay Luinab scheduled at 5:30am.
The hiking was about 8 kilometers long. We started at the Bahayan crossing, just in front of Abiol Store. Our exit area was at Caritas Village, still in Luinab.
The mountain with highest peak in this photo is Mount Agad-agad. I still haven’t climbed this mountain yet.
Yes, there are fogs in Iligan, but not as thick as what this photo says, Photoshop just enhanced it, just to be honest with you.
This is Mother Nature looking at her sons and daughters.
Saluting to God’s wonderful creation.
The left part of Mount Agad-agad.
Initially, I thought these white spots were plastics. But actually they’re spider webs.
Get out of your comfort zone, and join the adventure.
Last December 20, 2015, JCI Iligan Inc. together with three other chapters in Kulintang, Panguil Bay, and JJI Iligan went to Barangay Abuno to give out Christmas gifts to the residents there. But it’s not the usual giving of gifts, they also conducted a short trainings to the children, the youth, adults and the senior citizens.
A total estimate of 300 beneficiaries from the youngest to the oldest.
While waiting for the rest of the participants, I helped out preparing wrapping the gifts. These are notebooks, pencils and crayons.
The theme of this gift giving event is “We are one this Christmas”. This event also has a short training and feeding program for the children.
JCI officials giving their exhortation prior to the actual event such as training, feeding and giving out of the Christmas gifts.

The seniors are not be left out. They too have their share of the gifts and training.

Helping is like investing in a business. But investing in people is the best investment of all. Thank God for organizations such as JCI for being a positive influence to the city of Iligan.
After two months of renovation, Jollibee Gaisano Mall branch will open today. It is now bigger and has a new space beside the cashier counter. This new space would be probably my favorite, I personally call it “the cave” haha.
The lady in red is a Jollibee management staff with Iliganonko.com blogger.
The new store design concept is called Aura. The current design has an intimidating look and feel, a deviation from their usual red and yellow color designed specifically for kids.
Avid patrons will also get free items such as umbrella, pillows and mug. But only for the first 100 customers for each day from December 4 to 6.
The new cushion chairs below is similar to McDonald’s, probably from the same supplier.
The design has this same feel when you see the usual coffee shop, like Aruma and Coffee Works.
This is the cashier counter.
This is the center part of the main dining area.
This Jolibee outlet has seating capacity of around 150 seats, the second biggest of all four Jollibee branches.
Is this aesthetically emphasized part for lovers or for families? Either way, cushioned seats is difinitely good for the buttocks!
With fellow bloggers enjoying an afternoon of free food and conversations.
This Jollibee branch is officially the third outlet in Iligan City.
Hindang Falls is one of the few rarely visited but easily accessible falls in Iligan, although the distance in getting there takes a little longer. Probably about 30 minutes if you start at the crossing area in Barangay Kiwalan at the Granex gate.
The falls has 3 tiers. The middle one is not too high, and I have the video below. The first tier and the third about 10 meter high.
How to Get There?
Go to Barangay Kiwalan and stop right in front of the Granex vehicle gate. There is a small paved road or alley.
There are habal-habal drivers there.
I don’t have the exact fare information, but I say prepare 100 pesos for one way per person or a total of 200 pesos budget for transportation.
