Its time for us to bid goodbye to this beautiful land. Before checking out, we took this chance to take some pictures with the place, and with Ate Cathy & Kuya Arnel.

Because we missed visiting Bangui windmills on our second day, our last but not the least destination will be the windmills. Located in Bangui, Ilocos Norte, 70-meter high windmills in Bangui is the first wind farm in the Philippines built by Northwind Power Development Corporation, locally known as the Bangui Bay Wind Power Project. A very ideal source of electricity, the windmills is placed on a shoreline facing the South China Sea in which strong winds occurs, especially during typhoon (taking advantage! brilliant!). Truly a genuine project, that i hope will not be associated with political issues of the local government. I heard they still plan to add more and more windmills, a great news and a big help in reducing global warming.
More than its great benefit, this is a lovely sight to behold with its great huge structure. This is open to public, so everyone is allowed to witness its exceptional attraction. My friends joke around upon seeing the windmills... "Ang laki! Ang haba! Ang tulis!" Hahaha.
You can try to check out KangKang Cafe (though we haven't tried it because we're in a hurry), located 2.5 kms away from the windmills entrance (you'll see a sign there). So far, it is the only business establishment near Bangui windmills which serves coffee of course and other refreshments.
I think every photographer's dream was to take a photo of it during sunset. I maybe a super novice when it comes to photography but I wanted to have that shot. Unfortunately dark clouds are following us. Hehe, in fact it rained hard after we enjoyed the view.
Vendors sell magnet/keychain souvenirs in Bangui windmills (3 for Php100)
We had our take out dinner in Laoag City proper then proceed to Laoag airport. It's a good thing that we did that, because we didn't see any food stalls at the Departure Area or maybe they're closed. Terminal fee is still at Php40/head.
Finally, I was able to finish this post, thanks to those who find time reading and patiently wait for my series. My next post will be our itinerary and expenses and the list of hotels that I've searched during planning on this trip.
Happy Ilocos Trip everyone!! :)
