Fish frenzy!: Fishing at Aling Nene's Pond, Coloong I, Valenzuela City

Video: Aling Nene's Pond

One of the many things that One Valenzuela appreciates about her home city is the ease of having access to bodies of  freshwater. For her, these render a "province like" environment. Thus, given the opportunity to go on a short break (#thankyouAPEC), there is no more reason not to go fishing. 

It has been a while since One Valenzuela held a fishing rod again. After browsing the web for some knot tying review, off she went to Aling Nene's Pond (ANP). You can easily get to the said fishing grounds located at Coloong I (see instructions below).
Anglers at Aling Nene's Pond.
Luckily, One Valenzuela was able to meet Aling Nene in person. She said that ANP was just a freshwater pond then where they grow fish for a living in the 1980's. They eventually converted it to a fishing spot for enthusiasts. According to Aling Nene, there were even individuals from Mandaluyong and Cavite who go to ANP to fish. Additionally, One Valenzuela also saw several Japanese who were casting their reels on that same day.  
Aling Nene looks on. Salamat po!
One Valenzuela realized several convenient points on why many are fishing at Aling Nene's Pond. To name a few: (1) there are huts which you can rent for half or a whole day (Php400 for smaller huts; Php800 for bigger huts, rates as of this writing); (2) there is a canteen which serves good meals and drinks that you can bring to your hut; (3) there are several boys who will assist you (like in instances where, being a newbie, you cannot figure out how to set up your rod); (4) fish bait (masa and worms) can be bought from Php20 to Php50; (5) a grilling area is present; and (6) a comfort room is available. Do take note that you have to bring your own fishing equipment. On the other hand, nets for your catch can be borrowed.  
Fishing for tilapia (St. Peter's fish), bangus (milkfish), and apahap (Barramundi).
Breath in some fresh air. Relax and look at the still waters. Reel in fish.
At the end of the day, your catch will be weighed. Payment varies, depending on the type and weight of the fishes. In the afternoon, One Valenzuela saw some with ayungin to bring home other than tilapia and bangus. As One Valenzuela packed her bag which is now a kilo heavier, a new set of anglers came in to get some Barramundi with their live baits.

Go Calicrazzzzy!: SN'P and Roll at Brgy. Poblacion, Valenzuela City

Craving for Japanese food? You might want to visit this fairly new Japanese restaurant that One Valenzuela found during a weekend eatsploring adventure at Barangay Poblacion. 

SN'P & Roll began as an online business selling maki, aptly named Make.Eat.Maki., four years ago. It then changed to its present name last December 2014 which is a combination of the owners' initials- Saj, Nap, and Princess. After saving enough capital for a modest dine-in restaurant, SN'P & Roll formally opened its door to the public this March. 
SN'P & Roll: We satisfy your cravings
SN'P and Roll has california maki packages which can be enjoyed solo or with a group of friends.
The restaurant offers appetizers, rice meals, "the dons"(gyudon, katsudon, oyakodon), noodles, maki, belgian waffle, and shakes. For first time visitors, Saj of SN'P and Roll recommends that you order their maki and ramen combos. Craving for some rice on your plate? You may also try SN'P and Roll's Cordon Teriyaki, a fusion dish inspired by Japanese and French cooking.

Hot and savory tonkotsu ramen. SN'P and Roll has ramen and maki combos. 
It is also interesting to know a bit of fact that Saj, one of the store owners, once worked and learned how to cook dishes from a Japanese chef in a well known Japanese airlines. Additionally, SN'P and Roll wants every customer to have a wonderful dining experience. "Mura, magandang service, at masarap na pagkain," Saj shared. (Affordable, good service, and palatable meals.)
