the orange dragon




I visited the city on the third day. After a quick tour of the Crocodile Farm, Kuya Raul [trike] took me to the Butterfly Sanctuary. Unlike all the butterfly gardens I’ve been to, this one’s pretty small. There I found this orange dragonfly, looking peacefully like a quidditch player greedily clutching on his broomstick.

nimbus clouds of Pandan




Just had a hearty lunch here at Pandan Island, still part of the Honda Bay Tour. After a quick nap, I decided to go ‘round this small island. While walking, I notice that the skies are getting darker. I just have to have a shot of those mean clouds, and then this lone boat just came into view. Perfect for some drama. Some things just come out when you need them.


Btw, it didn’t rain. Those clouds are just showing off.

Starfish Island




It’s a beautiful day here at the Starfish Island! Sands and Skies!

trees of Starfish Island




I’m on my second day here at Puerto Princesa and just had my Honda Bay Tour. This is the Starfish Island. I found some usual horned starfishes, a bunch of them actually, so imagine my joy. What I found unusual are the mangroves pictured above. I mean, in the middle of the sea?

sand-colored sea star




I did one last stroll along the fine sands of Bolod, Panglao before I head back to the hotel and pack my things. Found me some green glass stones and this. Almost stepped into it. I found her in the shallow waters. Isn’t she pretty? Time to head back to Manila. Sigh.



Café Lawis, Bohol

Beside Dauis Church, I found this unassuming souvenir shop with its own café. They’re [souvenir shop] selling unique stuff, mostly native items, but what really wowed me is this avatar-ish giant acacia tree at the back of the shop. The moment I stepped out and found this, my jaw dropped. For lack of proper words to describe this spot, I really think it’s beautiful. This actually belongs to the mini café. I can imagine us talking endlessly while sipping our cups of coffee here. We’ll come back here, right?

starfish photo op




Sea stars never fail to astound me, like I can spend all day at the beach just looking for them. These are giant horned sea stars, or Protoreaster nodosus [googled them hehe], however you want to call them. These are the most common starfish found here. So does it look that these beauties were set up for a photo op? Heheh I was one overjoyed kid to have found a multitude of them at Virgin Island, yep still in Bohol. So yeah I asked them to gather round for an exclusive photo op. *Smiles


Love them.

You know I’m not really a beach person, but I’m havin’ a blast here. Am all pruned up and fried, as you can see the sun has almost set but am still beachcombing. The sand here is so freaking powder-fine and white! And as I wanted it, the beach ISN’T OVERCROWDED. This is in front of Bohol Beach Club by the way.

Oh I love it here. Will come back.
