Bohol Trip

Once again I am in Bohol. This time I'm with the the most passionate and awesome people from the church. I didn't really wanna remember the last time that we were here. definitely not.
My Church Family

 The traveling was really tiring, intersting, amazing (some) and also very hot. We left cebu by the ferry at around 7 am. We were all crowded inside cramp into the small belly of a fast craft. It was a two (or less) hour trip. Then we arrive in Tubigon, Bohol; the sun was shining very fiercely... it stings the skin. The idea/ plan was to pass by lots and lots of places before lunch in Loboc River.... So first we went to Sagbayan peak.

 I didn't climb the peak due to the fact that i don't wanna risk being sun burned and sun stroke (whichever).  But it was definitely freakin hot up there and even down were we were waiting for the others to descend from their trek.  Then next we tried the hanging bridge.

 It was an experience. Their were two hanging bridge and it was swinging! I use to think i am scared of hanging bridges... not anymore. At first i feel light and woozy.. sort of your falling into something then i got over it and even helped rock the bridge to scare the others!!! lol.

We had coconut juice they're-fresh!

 I bought one for Adams and for Ruby and paid for it but Adams got tricked by the owner and he paid again for the same coconut that i already paid for! Some people are really shocking if they can get away with whatever.

Then off we went to chocolate hills.                          

The place has improved a lot since i was here last - one thing was awesome was they had an air conditioned CR.. Yay!.. if you wanna cool off after the steep climb to God-knows how many steps, you can actually hang inside the toilets and you can cool you jets! lol.
Its wondrous how God design our world... i mean in my layman's thoughts about how these hills were made it was mind blowing... they look so perfect - well not really but the tip of most of them looks like chocolate because the grasses has turned into a deep brown because of the sun. the lower parts are still green though which is i think cool to the eyes...


 Then we went to Loboc River for lunch.     
River Boat where we had our lunch

a small low falls at the end of the river trip
 We were alll sooooooooo hungry and i mean that! Everyone of us looks sleepy and ready to fall off because of hunger. We had to wait 45 minutes for the lunch... i mean the boarding on the boat, then sitting there waiting for the food and smelling the food from the other boat.... I feel like screaming  - only good breeding and decency hold me back from just grabbing the friend chicken only 3 meters away from my nose. lol
The lunch itself isn't really that thought-consuming.... we ate it not with relish but with abandon... were so freakin hungry! There were fried noodles, rice, pork, barbecue, etc... Not really something i wanna brag about but we ate like a train with no brakes.. hahaha.....

Ate lin trying to remember her tinikling dance steps :D
25 minutes into the lunch/boat ride we stopped by into a floating barge and the local people - kids and adult alike gave a nice very filipino presentation where Ate lin get to dance - well it it was a good try of Tinikling - then almost near the end of the river (looks like an end) i hear a shout like something way up and we saw a bundle of something swing by in a cable and slowly the bundle spread its hands. We realized it was a human being (who looks like a bunched rag because of the distance) doing the zip line. OMG! i swear i am going to do that as long as someone is paying for it. I will feel sort of strange doing all the shouting and scaring myself to death if i am paying for it myself.. lol.

We arrived in Panglao Island almost 7pm. the place is cute and i get to stay with Les and Carsten
