The topography of the main island is characterized by rolling hills and discontinuous ranges of highlands and relatively broad bands of lowlands. On its northwestern tip are limestone cliffs that rise almost perpendicularly from the waterline. Several bays indent the coast of the islands; the most important of which are Port Barrera and Masbate Bay.

Philippines Cuisine Characteristics
The traditional way of eating is with the hands, especially dry dishes such as inihaw or prito. The diner will take a bite of the main dish, then eat rice pressed together with his fingers.
This practice, known as kamayan, is rarely seen in urbanized areas. However, Filipinos tend to feel the spirit of kamayan when eating amidst nature during out of town trips, beach vacations, and town fiestas.
