Every year when we have our summer outing we always make it near the date of our parent’s wedding anniversary. This year March 2015 is their 30th wedding anniversary (yey!) and we’ve decided that we will celebrate it in the beautiful province of Bohol, the home of the smallest living primate – Tarsier.
So here’s short video of Renzo’s teleportation!
We landed at Tagbilaran Airport around 9:00 in the morning.
Shell Amazing Toilet
Be careful when entering the cave coz it’s so slippery. The underground lake is a popular swimming spot however the lake is made of brackish water so it’s a little bit salty.
Dauis Church & Panglao Church
These churches are pretty much wrecked by the recent earthquake, good thing they are all into construction and they are already rebuilding the churches.
Lots and lots of shells. We didn’t even know all of those shells exist!! (After we saw all those shells, we searched for it on the beach.. Hahahaha check out our day 3) You can also see antiques and animal skeletons on the museum.
Bohol Bee Farm
All stuffs are organic here at Bohol Bee Farm, we bought wild honey and we tried their home-made ice creams.. We ate spicy ginger, guyabano (my favorite) avocado, lemongrass and chocolate. We also tried their lemongrass juice. (Yum!)
The fun part, holding the bee cages!!
We had lunch at chicken ati-atihan. I like their grilled chicken, a MUST-TRY. Two thumbs up for me!
We drop by into a nearby market to buy some food to cook for our dinner and tomorrow’s breakfast.
We stayed at Bohol Sunside Resort. The rooms are super big and clean, the pool is good too, however their blankets are too small and thin. They also give free water gallons per room and free use of kitchen utensils. (NICE!)
ITS SWIMMING TIME!!

Loboc floating Resto
The food was Good and the ride was fun, there’s a performer who sings while we eat our food. Besides the singer on the boat, there are also performers in the middle of the cruise and they are fun to watch as they dance tinikling and sing their native songs.

This is my Favorite part!!! Take me to the Beach!
I never thought Dolphin watching will be fun.. Boats chase them but then they get disturbed. What our boatman did was stay for a little while try not to make too much noise from his motorboat until such time he see dolphins then we run after them.. Luckily we see them near.
After dolphin watching we went to balicasag island, (a little tip, its better if you bring your own aqua shoes or jelly shoes they are cheap here in manila for about 50-100 pesos only) since some of us didn’t bring aqua shoes we opted to rent some, especially for the girls. Even though some corals are already damaged because they are being stepped, there are still lots of fish and we even saw nemo and that yummy loro fish.. Hahaha.. My parents enjoyed snorkeling especially my dad 😀
We also went to virgin island, it has beautiful wide stretch of fine white sand and lots of shells too (like we saw on shell museum!)
When we get back to the resort, my mom and my dad went to the market to buy some food. We rented the scooter for a day so they can go to the market.
