    They have a wet market where you can buy the sea food and take it to a nearby restaurant and have them cook it your way.

    Lobster was going at £2.00 a piece.

    Thank you for "taking us to the Philippines" with these photos ... what have you done to them in PhotoShop? Where is the difference to the originals?

    The wet market photos are impressive - my son guesses that the red fish on offer could be Red Snapper. Could he be right?

    If I were to buy fresh fish on that market to have it prepared "my way" in that restaurant that you mention, erm... I wouldn't know how. I have no way of my own as to preparing fish or sea food... What would I do? (Ah, the question is purely rhetorical, since there is little to no chance for me to ever get to the Philippines).

    Therefore I appreciate all photos from faraway lands - that is my only means to "get there". :D

    Mr. Lafoto,

    Thanks for your comment, ive just started using PS and what i did with the pictures was just to increase saturation and darken them a little bit. Im too lazy to go into the tutorial but God willing if my work give me more days off i will learn more about it. About the sea food, the fish were groupers if im not mistaken, locally known as Lapulapu they are lovely steamed and dressed with garlic mayo, or simply fried then dressed with sweet and sour sauce.

    All the best.

    Should be a warning when people post food pictures :drool: The church picture really catches my interest, would have liked to have seen it larger. The wood guard is a good line into the picture.
