I've read every bit of your blog and good to hear that you enjoy your travel with brooke's point. you must have checked some of the best spots that the town could offer. As far as I can remember what you should visit with it is the Mainit falls a combination of hotspring and a cold fresh water from the mountain, the sabsaban Falls, the Mt. Maruyog, the historic lighthouse of Brooke's Point and many others. Hope you enjoy your stay with my hometown though i wasn't living there now. :)
