When you are reading LiP and “Bob” is mentioned, most people would think about me. MindanaoBob, Bob Martin. I am the owner of this site. But there is another Bob who is practically a legend here on LiP as well.
Who am I talking about? BobNY – Bob from New York. Bob has been hanging out as a reader here on LiP for many years, and he even writes and submits an article from time to time as well.
Bob started visiting the Philippines, I believe, around 9 years ago. Bob is a very loyal man, and he is a “favorite son” of Iligan City, in Northern Mindanao. If Bob is coming to the Philippines (which he generally does at least once per year), you can bet he is going to visit Iligan!
A couple weeks ago, I posted a video about foreigners having fun in Mindanao, and Bob mentioned in a comment about his videos in Iligan City, having fun there. So, I was over on YouTube and looking at some various videos to feature here on LiP. I saw the video above showing Bob doing a Zip Line ride in Iligan City! I thought it looked like Bob was having fun (although he looked a bit scared too!), so I thought I’d feature it here on LiP. Bob, you are a real promoter of Iligan City, and I am sure that the people there appreciate you very much!
If you take a look in the background in this video you will see that there are some large and very beautiful waterfalls in the background. That is Maria Cristina falls, the most famous falls in Iligan City. But, Maria Cristina is certainly not the only waterfall in Iligan! Iligan is the City of Waterfalls, and there are lots of beautiful waterfalls there! I have been to Iligan many times, and visited a lot of the waterfalls, it is a great experience.
Bob, keep enjoying your trips to Iligan! I am expecting that one day you will be living there in Iligan – even if you don’t have a plan for that yet!
Today we are featuring Bob Newyorkusa in a video on LiP! Looks like Bob was having lots of fun riding the Zip Line in Iligan City!
WoW, the Zipline Experience at the NPC Nature Park in Iligan City. Did you see how they had to ” pry ” one of my hands off the turnbuckle ? I was checking the hardware to see if it was Metric or SAE. LOL . Good timing with this article Bob as I have just returned from my Tenth visit to Iligan City in Northern Mindanao. In fact I am still running on jet-lag from my return to New York. One of the most often questions I get about my vacations in Iligan City is why do I keep going… Read more »
I know we are not allowed to have favorites, But NY Bob is one of mine when he comments on the site. And as a Bostonian it’s no easy feat getting along with a New Yorker. (Baseball Rivalry between the two cities) but we do and have some fun doing it. Do you have the video of him singing with the Jollibee Bee?
Thanks for your comment Paul. Yes of course, here it is from the day the City of Iligan brought Jollibee to me ! This was at the official Monday Morning Flag raising Ceremony in the Anahaw Amphetheater next to City Hall, Iligan.
I have just arrived home from Visit Number Ten, still awake on Jet-Lag but there is always time to fill a music video request of a past Adventure, only in Iligan ! here is is:
That’s the one!!!
Best vacations I have ever had anywhere, Iligan City ! Where non-stop hospitality of Iliganons is non-stop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZlN0Qo5niA
Better than being in a Broadway Show, performing before hundreds of spectators in an outdoor stadium. Only in Iligan City, Mindanao, Philippines. Care to join me ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbcjtAtxz9M
wow i love ziplines! 🙂 longest ziplines FYI in the philippines are at bukidnon 800 meters long and at makilala north cotabato with 1.5kms long. But the highest with estimated of 1,000 above sea level elevation with 740 meters long is at lake sebu, south cotabato. 🙂
Thanks for your comment Rex. I think my experience at Iligan City will be enough Zipline to last me for a long time LOL. Trying another one might distort the memories of the wonderful day I spent at NPC Natures Park, Iligan City on the zipline seen in the video.
There is another Zipline in Iligan, I am still contemplating trying that one on a future visit. It is located at Mimbalot Falls.
