I have been so busy these past few weeks due to the hectic second semester schedule for my 2nd year of college. My class starts at 9:00 am Monday and Thursday and 7:30 am for Tuesday and Friday while my everyday dissmissal is 6:00 pm. Cool huh? Morning to evening, dusk till dawn, from Hawaii to New Zealand (taking the long path), from head to toe, from Single-celled animals to a human being, and etc. You got the point and sorry for the long wait.

After the extravagant tour, we decided to just relax for our 3rd day and try to appreciate Panglao more. Man, I love the white sand and the sound of minimal waves from the beach. It makes you want to go back over and over again. Our Morning, again, was greeted by another batch of breakfast buffet and it sure does the same excellent cooking job. We went to the same table and I waited for an hour or two and then it's time for more beach madness. We s
oaked ourselves in the salty waters of Panglao and we appreciated the magnificent beauty of the clean underwaters, fresh ocean air, and the breath-taking views around. I insisted the heat of the sun because I believed that moment was memorable so why not take a dark remembrance all through my body. My aunt and my grandmother did not took a vial of sunlight. They really hate to have a dark skin which made me taught they may have the descendants of Dracula. Anyway, before lunch I took a shower for some Seafood Lunch Fest. We ate this rare fish in "sinigang" and I just took in some food like a bottomless pit because it's delicous. When the sun reached the extreme hot temprature, I took a dip in the pool instead so I can swim and workout a bit. The beach is not deep enough for you to do your breaststroke, freestyle, and butterfly even in High Tide so I took a couple of rounds to stretch my dead muscles and brittle bones. Me and my uncle took some Brandy shots in that evening considered as a celebration for our last night. (Para sa mga Pilipino, ginawa ko lang sosy yung Brandy ha. FYI, Matador un. :) )








There is not much to say in the last day except it's a day of reminiscing or maybe a bit nostlagic. We are suppose to depart at 1:30 pm in Bohol so we fixed our carriages and stuff though we made a last dip in the beach. As you can see, My skin color was starting to burn like brownish red or something and it is totally burned charcoal black today.
Well, I guess it's a part of a beach vacation and I actually liked it. After fixing some stuff, I went back to my favorite seat near the resto-bar. I rememebered everything from the departure of the plane, the quick dip at the beach, the tour, Chocolate hills, Tarsier, Panglao and everything went through my mind trying to tease me like saying "You should live here!". Anyway, riding the service van to the airport will give you this mixed feeling of sadness and excitement. Sadness because you will be leaving the paradise which is a rare scene in Luzon. Excitement because you want to see your family, friends, and others to tell all your experiences in the vacation. Riding the Plane on the way home, I realized so many things that every human should imagine. Seing Bohol, I can see the great marvey of God's creation. It's a masterpiece and actually it's just a small part of all the great works of God. God really is creative that you will feel the guilt on how you pollute nature on any way you can imagine. As the plane rises, My nostalgic moments are over and looking at the plane window leaving Bohol, I said to myself "I don't want to be the only one to enjoy this adventure. I want my family, friends, and relatives to experience this kind of vacation." That statement made me write this blog for you to be a part of my experience. I don't want to be selfish and to enjoy this myself. This is God's creation and it's for everyone and from this simple way of sharing my thoughts through blog, telling stories, and uploading pictures is my way of sharing my happiness. Thanks for reading a 3 part post of my vacation in Bohol. If you have the money and time, try to book your flight in Bohol. It's fun and relaxing. It's also a simple way for supporting the tourism in the Philippines.

Goodnight everybody and have a nice day!


P.S.


I had an Airplane ear arriving on NAIA.. man it hurts!!!!


Waking up at 6:00 am with a breakfast buffet is one of the greatest mornings I ever had and they have it in the resort. Well, it's not the buffet that you expect like fried turkey and roast beef. It's the regular breakfast but with a lot of choices and a delicious style of cooking. Got to love those tuna, scrambled egg, bread, watermelon, fried rice, and a coffee while watching the small waves on the beach. After being stuffed by our grand breakfast, our tour van will be running at 9:00 am so we took a bath and dressed up and we waited until 9 for our tour van. We just chilled out. My grandpa and grandma stayed in our room while my aunt, uncle, and me took pictures and I tried to appreciate the white sands of Panglao. No matter how I look at it, it's awesome.

So there we go, we moved out with the van with a tour guide and a screeching driver like those Jeepney drivers in Antipolo. Though in Bohol, it's a bit reasonable to be a mad driver because of the smooth roads and the traffic. In Manila, doing that thing is suicide. Anyway, the tour guide shared a lot of facts and information.

Bohol quick Facts

*Bohol is derived from the barrio of Bo-ol meaning "from the well".

*Bohol is the Hometown of Francisco Dagohoy who led athe longest revolt in the Philippines


*It was in Bohol when Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna did the brotherly Blood-Compact.

*Bohol's Capital is Tagbilaran City.


*It is also the Hometown of Carlos P. Garcia, the 8th President of the Philippines. One municipality was named after him and it's an island in the North East of Bohol though he was born in Talibon.


Our first stop was the Chapel of Immaculate Concepcion in Baclayon. It's the oldest Chapel in Bohol. We took pictures inside and outside the chapel but we are prohibited in the musuem. It was really great that they preserved that structure. I rememebered in the musuem that it was actually scary not because of the environment but because of the wooden floors. It was in the upper floor of the Chapel and the wood was like creaking when you step on it like when you jump, you will fall. Just kidding but the creaking wood was true. So after that, we proceed to the Smallest Monkey in the world, The cute Tarsier. What we saw was some domesticated tarsier not some wild ones because according to the tourists, it's gonna be a tough chase if we want some wild ones. Tarsiers are small. Just the size of you regular pin cushion but with a long tail. Tarsiers are nocturnal meaning they are active during the night like Owls that's why some of them are drowsing when we got there. They are so cute you might want to steal them in your pockets. I also love how you feed them because they tend to close their eyes when they eat. Primarily, they eat insects like caterpillars and stuff. Their eyes are really big which is one of their assets I think. Haha. After some tarsier madness, we then go to the world famous Chocolate Hills located in Carmen 55 km from Tagbilaran City. We are not actually in the hills but we are on the view deck to see a thousands of hills surrounding you 360 degrees view like you are in the center. To get to the view deck, you have to climb this 214 stair steps I think but it's really well worth. These perfect cone shaped hills became a candidate for the new 7 wonders of the world and no doubt it should be. After some Chocolate hills madness, we are all hungry for lunch but before that, we took some pictures in the mahogany forrest on the way to Loboc. These trees were amazing and it really makes you feel you are in the forrests of North America. We just had some 5 minute relaxation mode. Then here we go, time for some lunch and another eat all you can restaurant on a floating boat in Loboc River. So relaxing and so good. It's so nice just sitting on the side of the boat looking at those nipa trees inhaling the fresh river breeze while eating some watermelon, So awesome. After the river cruise, we then proceed to the Clarin Ancestral House. The home of the first governor of Bohol. I just can't rememeber his first name but anyway one of his descendants became a senator of the Philippine Congress during the same time of Benigno Aquino Sr and Lorenzo Sumulong. The house was preserved by the Clarin Family and inside you will some old jars, furniture, old documentations of senator clarin, their tables, a door with a secret lock, and so much many stuff. After that, went to this souvenir shop and we bought some stuff and then going to the last stop, the Blood-Compact Shirine where you will see some statues in the exact same spot of the Blood-Compact of Legazpi and Sikatuna. That was the last spot so our van dropped us at the resort and we kicked back. It was an exhausting day but I enjoyed the trip. I learned many stuff and saw the marvey of God's creation and how people took care of it.


Sorry for the late post and it's a pleasure for me to share to everyone my experience in Bohol. Add Bohol in your vacation checklist and I will assure you it's well worth!











It was so many months ago that my aunt planned our vacation in Bohol and actually, we tried to fix our schedule because of the adjustment of vacation due to the storm Ondoy. We are supposed to get a 5 days and 4 nights vacation in Bohol but instead things get fucked up at the beginning of the flight. Our plane Departure is suppose to be 8:30 am in Cebu Pacific and they said we are suppose to be in the airport 2 hours or 1 hour before the flight but we had some minor problems that we arrived there 8:00 am but still 30 minutes left. I taught it was okay but then things get bad when Cebu Pacific didn't allowed us to board the plane. C'mon!!! where is the consideration on that?? They said we have to pay a penalty fee for us to board the plane AT 12:00nn. The fee was so expensive and other than the fucking penalty fee, we were suppose to buy new plane tickets for us to board. If we do that, our pocket money will be lacking for the vacation so just gone home and my aunt decided to fly the next day not in Cebu Pacific but Philippine Airlines or usually called PAL. Our tickets cost almost the same with Cebu Pacific but PAL is a little bit more expenisive but not too high difference.

After the traumatic experience, they decided to go to the airport very early that we waited 2 hours for departure. Our plane was departing at 8:30 am (again) and we were at the airport 6:30. After a 2 hour nap, we boarded the plane and wooooohh it was my first time to ride the plane. I was a bit excited but then after the plane took off, it was just like riding the Bus being thrown by the Hulk. While I was in the flight, the stewards in PAL gave us snacks like cookies, peanuts, and a choice of your drinks like water, coffee, or tea.


After an hour of flight, we were at Tagbilaran City, the city of friendship and the capital city of Bohol. It was awesome to breath some provincal fresh air. The hotel van picked us up from the airport and a 45 minute trip to airport, we arrived at the Dumaluan Hotel and Beach Resort. On the way to Dumaluan, the traffic in Bohol was extraordinarily smooth. It will never happen in Manila. The 45 minute trip in Bohol is a 2 hour drive in Manila. Also the surroundings in Bohol is too much rural. If you think provinces in Luzon like Bulacan, Pampanga, and Pangasinan are too rural, witnessing the environment in Bohol will make you think Luzon provinces are urban. Anyway, our location in Bohol is in the Southwest island though Tagbliliran City is not too far. We were in our room kicking back from the energy absorbing trip. My jaw dropped when I saw the white sand beach and it feels like I was in Boracay and maybe better. Later on we ate lunch and the seafoods were awesome. Then, the exhausting aura had been gone after that. The schedule of the trip was suppose to be the next day so we just swam at the beach and we just hanged out. I was expecting a night life like Boracay but then I saw a peaceful evening heck even the acoustic band is upt ot 10 pm. But then again, it's for the people who wants to rest and you may see how the people are concern about it. People in Bohol are kind and they really enjoy serving people even the waiters and waitressess.


After all, the first day nightmare was erased by the relaxing environment of Panglao, Bohol. It makes you want to come back in that place over and over again. Bohol may be just known for the Chocolate Hills and Tarsier, but in the future, these beaches may be the next Boracay.

Tomorrow I will post day 2, the day we gone through the landmarks of Bohol.
