Whale Shark Watching - Oslob

Image
Been here last April 2016 since i didn't take classes for summer. Got the opportunity to visit Oslob for the 1st time with my friend from Malaysia. Actually i didn't expected for a trip to Oslob but since my Malaysian friend come to Cebu alone during his vacation. I accompany him going to Oslob to watch Whale shark or in local word Butanding.



The trip took about 4 hours travelled to Oslob by taking Bus at South terminal nearby to Elizabeth Mall. We departed from Cebu approximately about 3am in the morning. I didn't expected much from this trip however the feel is change once i arrived at Oslob i feel the excitement when i saw alot of people gathered in one place just to watched the Whale shark.



Before we started the main activity to watch the Whale shark we need to attend the orientation 1st about what is the Do's and Don'ts. The feeling once i dived in the sea and try to take some photos with Butanding is frightening at 1st. But once i get to used to it for a few …

Mantayupan & Kawasan Falls

Mantayupan Falls which is nearby to my grandfather place from my mother side in Barili. Are one of the mesmerizing falls that i have ever seen. The view is breathtaking and the moment i entered the area i feel was welcomed by the humming of the birds.





With the entrance fee of PHP20. It is worth it to stop over at this amazingly natural falls. The 98-feet tall falls is a sight to see. Feel the weight of the water dropping and the tug of the water wave which makes it even more exciting. However i didn't swim because it was just a temporary stop. Since my priority destination is Kawasan Falls.




1st time i heard the name of the Falls, it's like Malay word. Kawasan word in Malay means area or region. I guess the person who discovered this Fall is orang Melayu. Afterall, Philippines is Malayo Polynesian.





Kawasan Falls is the 2nd tourist spot that outside from Cebu City that i visited when i 1st arrived here in the Philippines. Based on my experienced exploring this beautiful place....…

Bohol are one of the interesting places that i visited before my classes begin last year 2015.  If not because of my cousin i think i don't have the opportunity to explore Bohol which is one of the major island in Visayas. 

Actually it is an unplanned trip to go to Bohol, since i have a few weeks left before the classes started for the 2nd semester. So I was boring just stay at Cebu City and my cousin give me a suggestions to explore outside of Cebu City. He suggested that maybe go to an island like Bohol. 
Coincidentally, Bohol is like a hometown for my cousin since he was grew up in Tagbilaran City where he used to study in one of the Highschool and tertiary institute in Bohol. I am pretty sure he is very familiar with the place which i don't have to worry being lost. Then i said yes, why not. I would like to see the chocolate hills that people talked about either through word of mouth and social media. 







So we decided to go on weekend since he is not on duty. We depart from…
