Essentials in Ilocos Region

Fast Food Restaurant
$
“It is interesting to note that no matter how mothers with babies and toddlers thrive in Sagada, there don't seem to be any shop selling baby stuff. Except for 7J's. They are working on adding baby essentials to their merch. This store is also stocked with a wide array of apparel and accessories apart from the souvenirs that you can also find in the other local shops.”

“Auntie Juliet, the owner, is a real dear and her store by the side of the road is well-stocked with drinks, snacks, canned assortments and even some school supplies. Her store is located in Dagdag which is close to the bnb.”

“Forgot to grab a toothbrush from that grocery at the town center? Fret not, you can buy one here. This store is the nearest one to the bnb, just across the road from the Lemon Pie House. They are well-stocked with some fresh produce, canned goods and other needful things.”

Shopping Mall

Bank
“Just in case the ATM machines in town don't work, you can take the jeepney down to Bontoc where you'd have a number of other banks to choose from. PNB is one of the better choices, as it's located close to the Banaue-bound bus terminal.”

Hospital
“This is, by far, the homiest hospital that I have ever been admitted to. It's a good thing that even after renovations, they have retained the wooden finish of the rooms and facilities. That may not be so much to other folks, but it sure makes going to see the doctor much less intimidating that the usual sterile whiteness of other hospitals.”
