Chocolate Hills, Bohol

Friday, September 30, 2011


Hello !

This is freaking epic! That’s how they say it, right, epic? Well it really is! Again, Sibika Kultura days. This is the famous Chocolate Hills, more popular among kids I believe, because of ‘chocolate’. Well, I have been ‘curious’ about this choco thingee for the longest time and am finally here! And it’s really cool! I mean these hills just go on and on and on. They look like they’re covering the entire Bohol island! You should be here!

Well, it has been photographed so many times, different angles, and I just couldn’t resist. Some chocolatey hills for you dear!

no french garden


Hi ,

You must be thinking that I’ve left and has gone to Europe, stayed in a fancy hotel with a lush jardin à la française. But this is actually in Chanarian-Tukon. To be exact, it’s Brgy. Chanarian-Tukon, Basco, Batanes. This is Fundacion Pacita’s owners’ beautiful garden, which I have accidentally barged into upon inspection of the place. This place is actually off-limits to visitor, but curiosity took me there, and after a few more steps, I found myself face-to-face with the house caretaker. He wasn’t mad, but I can tell he’s not pleased. Hehe. But as I told you, Ivatans are the nicest of nicest, he let me took a shot of this wonderful view anyways, having sensed that I mean no harm and the only weapon I carry is my trusty D40.

I’ll see you soon!


Tayid Lighthouse, Batanes

need not chase light 

Now Batanes has several lighthouses and this is one of them, right smack in the middle of the hills. Batanes has been really generous. It has given me breathtaking views of the seas and hills, the nicest locals on the planet, and as seen in the postcard above, beautiful light that helped me freeze this moment and send it to you.
