Bohol: Go to HILL!!!

Hihihi! Naaliw ako sa title. Anyway highway... Yes! Just got back fresh from Bohol once again. That's exactly a month after I went there. Sabi ko sa sarili ko "I shall return" and glad I did. Honestly, my first visit didn't exceed my expectations. Medyo nakulangan ako. "I beg to disagree" yan ang plano kong sabihin sa mga friends kong nagsabing may wow factor ang Bohol. I had to prove myself wrong. So I went...

I thought I will never create an entry again on countryside tour kasi nakita ko naman halos lahat. Balak ko sana idagdag na lang yung hindi ko narating. Kaya lang ibang experience kasi to. I'm with my long lost friend EJ (I'm still thinking if I will make a separate post just for you. hahah! You deserve it.), regular travel buddies Mich, Jeneson and Rachelle (except for Martyn. We missed you there!), plus another new pal Karen.. I super enjoy being with them. I'm happy they're the chosen ones. lol! Oh and yeah, I was the one who organized everything. And I'm so proud of myself. hahaha!

I can't seem to find reasons not to do this entry. Aside from doing this trip with my friends, isa isahin pa natin why Bohol really deserves another blog post. Kabog talaga ang katamaran. hahaha!

Nga pala, isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit hindi ko to makakalimutan.. muntik lang naman kaming maiwan ng plane. Nangyari na to dati.. Deja vu ng CDO trip. We were the last ones who boarded. Buti na lang talaga umabot pa. Feeling ko magtatantrums si EJ at Karen pag nawalan ng silbi ang pagpunta nila dun ng alas nuwebe kahit 11:45am pa ang flight. hahah! Define EXCITED. Hindi ko ata nabanggit na domestic flight lang kami. lol!

All aboard!

Let's admit.. we all wanted to be on window side of the plane. And because it's off-peak season, we owned the last 3 rows. Hindi pa man nagtatake off, nagttrip to Jerusalem na kaming lahat. Karipas ng kakalipat ng pwesto. Ayun, our original seats were left empty. Ang haharot. We even raised our hands and shouted upon take off as if we're riding a roller coaster. hahah! Lol! Yan ang tamang trip.



We saw a rainbow from above. And yes, we tried to look for a pot of gold on its end. Hahaha! Bata?!?! Nakakatuwa lang. I felt this trip would turn out to be one of the best. Ewan ko ba.. ang lakas ng dating ng rainbow sakin. It can change my mood in a snap. Simply AMAZING.

It was the first time I saw Bohol's Aerial View. Before kasi, we just rode a ferry from Cebu.

There was this one video going around Social Networking sites. It was entitled "Proud to be Pinoy? Don't be!" Isa lang ang picture na to sa mga isasampal ko sa kanila. Sorry na lang, it's too late. I am and I will always be.

Sensya.. hindi ako maka-move on sa ganda niya. lol! I have 15 aerial shots left. What to do? hihihi!
Touchdown just in time. May nakita pa kaming umeksena. Isa isang tinatanong ni ate kung sino daw yung maingay. Nabother ako kasi nga maingay kami. Nung nahuli niya yung maingay na group sa harap, namayapa ako. I mean I felt relieved. Gusto ko pa sana panoorin ang jombagan nila but we had to go. It's already 1:30PM and we need to finish the countryside tour for that day.

My friends were surprised to see a placard with "Sexy Maki" written on it. Yun na daw ba sundo namin? Ako daw ba tinutukoy ni kuya? Gusto ata masaktan.

Try daw ni EJ yun minsan. Sabi ko Luis Manzano ang ipasulat niya tutal feel na feel naman niyang look-alike sila somehow.. Tapos, magtatalukbong daw siya bago isakay ng mga kasama niya sa van para lalong magkagulo ang tao sa airport. Dun ako naexcite. hahaha! Knowing EJ, alam kong gagawin nga niya yan. Sha! Ikaw na bida! Don't forget to share your experience with us. I dare you!


Mag Aso Falls

It's a rainy season so I set a very high expectations on it. Ibang level ang lagaslas ng water pag mga ganung panahon.

Picture taking on the trail (EJ aka Joshua, Karot, Mich and Rachelle. Jeneson was off to somewhere)

As usual I failed to count the number of steps.
Me: "1..2..3...22..23.. Ay wait dali maganda dito.. Pose kayo.. "
Friends: (Pose naman. Ang daling kausap. Mga hayok sa picture.)
Me: "San na nga ulit? 20? 21?"

Ayoko ng umulit. Magla-lawa na ang kilikili ko.


Mag Aso falls
Nice and cute. It really has it's own charm though. I was very satisfied that I included it in our itinerary kahit medyo out of way and we added 300.00 fare just for this. Walang pagsisisi. Even though I knew the tragic incident here when a sudden flash flood occurred way back 2009, I insisted to visit the place since it will be my first time to see it. Besides, hindi ko naman sila hinayaang maligo diyan e. Scary.


Baclayon Church

Can you spot Father Pio's image here?
I never thought may lumabas na ganun image sa church. Ang galing. Thanks Madam Ella for this info. Kinilabutan ako nung nakita ko siya sa mga pics ko last month. He never set foot in the Philippines but it was confirmed it was him on the wall.

Who is he anyway?
Padre Pio, a humble Capuchin priest from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy, was blessed by God in many wonderful and mysterious ways. The most dramatic was the stigmata. Padre Pio bore the wounds of Christ for fifty years!

Among his other gifts were perfume, bilocation, prophecy, conversion, reading of souls, and miraculous cures. People are still being cured through his intercession in ways that cannot be explained by medicine or science.

More important, if less spectacular, are the spiritual healings that take place in all parts of the world! Padre Pio is a powerful intercessor.

Hulaan kung anong binili ko.. hihihi!


Bentang benta ang candles na yan. Everyone has their own desires in life. Lamang ang Red.

Mas marami pa rin ang may gustong maging maswerte sa buhay, magkaron ng passion at courage kesa magka-lovelife. Hahaha! Oh well, may mga pink din naman akong nakita e. Apir Rachelle! May mangilan ngilan pa rin ang tulad natin. Endangered tayo remember? Ganun talaga. hihihi!


Prony the Python


I challenged my blogger friend Jeff to pose inside Prony's cage and do what I did. Hanggang hawak lang ang kaya ko Jeff. hahaha! Hindi ko na kayang ipalupot pa sa katawan ko. Ikaw na lang. Para akong hihimatayin after.


Tarsier Sanctuary


Mich tried to pose here too. Effort ang lola mo. Nakalimutan niyang hindi kami magka-height kaya kailangan pa niyang lumiyad para sumakto mukha nya dyan. Hahaha! Ok lang yan Mich. Kung beauty ang meron ka, height ang sakin. Fair lang si Bro. hihihi!

Smile!

At anong sinabi ni Diana Zubiri sa pose na yan!? hahah!


Chocolate Hills

Me: "Kuya magkaka-size ba ang bundok na makikita namin?"
Kuya Driver: "Hindi mam. Iba iba yan. May cup A, B, C.."
lol!

Greenhills






Ay sh*t bagay! hahah! badtrip..

Night Cruise at Loboc River


Na LSS kami sa "Bellionnaire", sa portion ng No Touch na "Pakimbot-kimbot", at ang walang kamatayang "Balik sa bohol balik!" hahah! We were singing this song hanggang sa paguwi. I will post a video on my succeeding entries.

We checked in at Citadel Alona Inn. Wala akong ma-say sa lugar na yun.. Perfectly fit sa budget namin. Sulit ang pagreresearch ko. Everyone loved the place. I will make a separate post on that. For now, that ends Day 1, Bohol Countryside tour. We visited Hinagdanan cave too, but it was included in Day 2 since nanlilimahid na rin kaming lahat.


Tsk tsk! bad... Tanduay Ice is becoming a habit. hahah!
