Same reel, an hour later, a beauty of a 10 pounder ‘Puti-an’ (White Fish) – one of the best tasting denizens of the Sulu deep. In days past, one was accostumed to treats of just-caught ‘Puti-an,’ salted and grilled over live coals, paired with the standard Visayan accompanying relish known as ‘Sinamak’ (spiced coconut-wine vinegar). It is our contention that only the Strawberry Grouper (‘Lapu-Lapu’ fish) is comparable (but only a distant second) to the taste of this prized specie.

 Local beauties… or NorCal girls (Christy Harder and friend Chris)… what are they doing so far from home?

 A typical Happy Valley beach bonfire—not exactly your normal, run-of-the-mill type—this sucker is (as they’ve always been) nearly 30 feet tall!
