Where the Sky meets the Sea - Bohol Adventures Part 1

Image
This is my first travel blog. Hope I would do justice to this very beautiful place.

A day after our official field work was finished, my officemate (Mami Sielle) and I prepared ourselves for a short trip around Bohol. Our itinerary:
1. The Blood Compact
2. Baclayon Church
3. Man-made Forest
4. Chocolate Hills
5. Simply Butterflies
6. Loboc Tarsier
7. Loboc River Cruise
8. Biggest Python

We rented a car (w/driver) for P1,800 to tour us around the place. Our first stop was the site of Datu Sikatuna's and Miguel Lopez de Legazpi's Sandugo (Blood Compact).



Quick Fact: The Sandugo is performed by making a small cut in the arm or breast of each party. Two or three drops of blood from their arms are mixed in a cup with water or wine. The drink is then divided equally between two cups and drank by each party.

Destination information:
Classification: Historical Site
Cost: none
Activities: Picture-taking

After a short picture-taking session, we continued our journey to our next stop-over:…

My Final Fantasy II

"All is fair in love and war."

My life, so far, has experienced so many personal battles involving different persons, situations, and resolutions. In every one of these battles, I've lost so much. And yet, I'm still here, fighting a good fight, living each day with every strength that I have.

When I had my first relationship, I must admit, the feeling was indescribable. Suddenly, I've discovered completely different interpretations and emotions whenever I hear love songs playing softly on the radio. It's like finding a secret code within a book which describes how to live your life in ecstasy, in bliss. Young as we were, we tried to live life to the fullest, most of the time playing on the dangerous side of life. We had so many ups and downs, mostly the latter, but the thought of having someone special close to my heart kept me going on. However, not all battles, no matter how long and how hard you've fought it, will end in victory. And when my defeat arr…

"Ang nagsindi nitong ilaw,
walang iba kundi Ikaw.
Salamat sa liwanag Mo,
muling magkakakulay ang Pasko.

Dahil Ikaw Bro, ang star ng Pasko!"

Galing! Very powerful lyrics. Tuwing Christmas, madalas pinag-uusapan ang Christmas Tree, exchange gift, mahabang bakasyon, at si Santa Claus. Yung tunay na bida ng Pasko, madalas nakakalimutan na. Naaalala ko nung elementary pa ko, may isang article sa school paper namin tungkol sa kantang "Santa Claus is coming to town". Simpleng tanong pero tumatak sa isip ko: bakit nga ba ang lyrics ng kantang yun e "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I'm telling you why... Santa Claus is coming to town", e samantalang birth ni Jesus ang ipinagdiriwang natin? Anyway, sana ngayong Pasko huwag naman natin syang kalimutan.
