Review: Soban Restaurant

It was the city fiesta of Dumaguete and we found ourselves in front of Soban Korean Restaurant for dinner. We’ve been hearing that they serve good (Korean) food. And being the foodies that Yodawan and I are, we decided to give it a try.

This pool didn’t change much over the years. Or the 2 pools beside it. But now, they made a slide just by the kiddie pool.

Don’t worry about the color of the water. They change it regularly and they clean the pools as well. I know so coz the last time we were here, we saw them clean it. Continue reading “Forest Camp [Valencia, Negros Oriental] Philippines”
