Tita Susan and Manong Carlito

Posted on October 7, 2009 by under Family, Travel.    


This is a photo of Tita Susan and her husband Manong Carlito taken at Alona Palm Beach Resort, one of the nicer resorts along Alona Beach in Panglao Island. We had dinner at Alona Palm on the eve of our arrival in Bohol because they are located next to Alona Tropical Resort, where we spent the night.


Tita Susan is the daughter of one of Papang Joe’s siblings. She is one of mom’s more successful cousins. Her chicharon, Susan’s Chicharon, is famous throughout the region. I think it is the best chicharon ever. At least, it is way better than the manufactured kind that you get in US supermarkets.

She actually showed us where they make their chicharon. Brian asked me why I did not take pictures. I told him that I did not want other people to take advantage of the information and then set up a business to compete with Tita Susan. I want her to continue to be the best chicharon supplier in the Bohol and surrounding area.

    I have not seen Susan in ages but when I saw her at the pier, it’s like all the years just vanished.
    When you are first cousins, I guess it is almost looking at some of your genetics 🙂

    It was so much fun with Susan, her husband Carlito and her youngest son Caloy showing us around Bohol, Philippines, now a much sought after tourist destination.

    I can sense Susan’s pride and contentment living in Bohol. Thank you so much, Susan and family for a very memorable visit in Bohol.
