Cebu & Bohol: A Paradise in Visayas

**note :
PLS VISIT THIS SITE TO MAKE YOU LAUGH! (feat shan shan, my niece)

I haven't been to visayas. This is my first time visiting cebu and bohol! I was amazed how people treat us, they were so hospitable. Now I know why a lot of people wants to go back to cebu and bohol.

Aside from that, you can see that bohol is a paradise for me. I haven't been to Boracay & Palawan yet, but this made my jaw dropped with amazement! The place is so wonderful and I want to go back!
My best experience is fish feeding/snorkeling. I really regret not buying an underwater cam. I fely my sony dsc cam is worthless that time. I regret not taking a shot at those colorful creatures at the bottom of the sea. Good thing, some of them are shown in the newly opened, OCEAN PARK (luneta manila) I was able to take pictures then. :)

The place is packed with cozy accomodations, I really want to get out of the life in the city and I booked myself and my friend in "OOPS! BAR", It doenst have an airconditionedroom but its made of NIPA hut with its own comform room and fan. It just cost 900/day. It has a bar that a lot of foreigners join you during weekends. My neighbor cottages are foreigners and we are only the Fil girls out there. The bar caters plenty yummy dishes and you can just ask them to cook anything you want with their raw meat.

**I promise to post pictures in my travel page. I forgot my camera at home :(

Going out of Sumaging Cave... you should try this.

Bangui Windmills, Ilocos Norte

1st in Southeast Asia, cool huh?

Battad, Ifugao

Here is my first hiking with my Mozcom officemates and some of our friends. We went to lagawe, banaue then had our death defying experience in Battad. We opted for Battad rather than Banaue since they say that Banaue is too crowded while Battad is a virgin. Well, its true. Our lodging only cost P75 and we hiked for 4 hours from the paved road. No electrivity yet on Battad.. We saw wild horses, wild pigs so we got wild in the forest too! hahaha. jk.

FYI. this place is prone to landslides.

Here is my pic in the Battad Tappia Waterfalls. Can you see the rainbow?

Saud Beach, Pagudpud Ilocos Norte

The best place to stay is in Apo Indon! - Lonely Planet
