Aga Muhlach Has A Great Adventure Exploring Bicol

AGA MUHLACH is enjoying hosting “Pinoy Explorer” on TV5 very much as it’s as much a great learning experience for him as well as the viewers. This Sunday will be the start of a two-part special on Bicol. In the first part entitled ‘Isla-Amazing’, Aga goes to Camarines Sur and visits the beautiful Caramoan Islands to experience wake-boarding and mountain off-road driving.

Bicolano cuisine is a popular fare in the country and Aga gets a taste of the one-of-a kind Bicolano pizza. He also looks for the region’s talented animators and visits a group of prisoners skilled in making toy boats.

For the second part, airing on March 18, Aga visits Albay and Sorsogon in search for the biggest fish in the sea, the gentle giants called Butanding. From these friendly whale sharks, Aga tries to find the Sinarapan, the smallest edible fish in beautiful Lake Buhi.

He then takes the adrenaline up a notch by riding an All-Terrain-Vehicle going to the majestic Mayon Volcano. "Our country is really so beautiful and Bicol is surely one of the best places I've explored so far," he says. "So many beautiful places to see and experience."

But Aga’s biggest challenge yet is eating the infamous Bicol Express. Can he stand the intense hotness of this spicy and delectable Bicol specialty? Find out all this and more in the upcoming episodes of Pinoy Explorer. Part one airs this Sunday, March 11, and part two on March 18, 6:30 p.m. on TV5.
