Island party every night
Island party every night
We all felt that our time was cut short. This is the day we’re going back to Manila. Sadly, we packed our things so that we could leave by 12 noon. Despite the harsh sun, I managed to walk outside and get some last-minute shots.
I saw these kids playing around and swinging from the tree to have a freefall by the sea. It took me a while to capture the kid on air. It took patience…
A slant coconut tree nearby.
I thought I might have a heatstroke because the heat is intense so I went inside and ate this Fried Ice Cream. It’s really delicious! I wonder where I could buy something like this in Manila.
Then, we had lunch here. Their sylvannas and sans rival are really delicious, plus, it’s cheap!
This is the view outside the restaurant. It’s like Manila’s Baywalk.
I captured the sunset while the plane is preparing for its landing in NAIA Airport.
More Day 4 pictures and my Multiply album.
It had beautiful man-made step falls linking the river so that it would continuously fall from this mountainous terrain to the plains.
We rented “bankas” (small boat) so that we could go to the other side of the lake.
We were told that the depth of this lake is about 70ft -100ft.
After 30 minuits of boat riding, we arrived at the other side of the lake. We hiked for about 15 minuites to arrive at the waterfalls. I took a picture of some wildlife animals I found interesting while we hiked:
This is a “wild boar.” I don’t know if you should still call it “wild” though because it’s already in captive. If you don’t know what it is it’s kind of sort of like a crazy, black-colored pig which is much more aggressive than the normal pig and can even aggressively bite human beings if provoked.
And of course, I have more creative shots. This lake also has the lots and lots of flowers.
I have more day 3 pictures at my multiply album.

I have more day 2 pictures at my multiply album.
It’s early on a sunday morning. We left 7am in the morning via Cebu Pacific airlines and arrived at exactly 8am in Sibulan, Dumaguete. We didn’t stroll around Dumaguete but instead, we drove all the way to a nearby town called Zamboangita. There we checked in at Private Residence VIP resort. Yes, you’d have to be “invited” to stay there.
I have more day 1 pictures in my Multiply album.
I have been here many times but I never enjoyed as much as I did now. I haven’t been blogging for 4 days since I was there on a remote island. Though with globe’s mobile internet it could be possible, I still got tired at the end of the day with all the trekking, hiking, snorkelling, diving and drinking.
With my new camera Lumix TZ5 at hand, I enjoyed being there twice as much and appreciated the scenery, flowers and the people whose smiles I have captured. My officemates are begging me to buy me a digital SLR already since I think they realized that I have a talent at photography. They were disappointed when I decided to buy a compact camera. But, by bringing the handy and portable TZ5 all along with me I could put it in my purse, take pictures quickly every time I need it. Plus, with TZ5’s intelligence auto, I don’t have to switch picture modes. It just has a mind of its own and detect wether I am taking a picture of a beautiful scenery, a macro for the flower, or a portrait. It’s point-and-shoot literally.
With my new extra portable, super light ipod shuffle – I get to listen to my favorite music without adding extra pounds to my backpack. I left my 60Gig ipod video at home because I’m a chic that travels light. That’s the reason why I didn’t buy the DSLR too. I hurt my back when I bring heavy things because of my scoliosis.
Finally, I checked my mails even when I am at the tip of a remote island. Just as long as I have a globe network signal, I could browse the internet anywhere. When there’s wi-fi I could do that too with my new p990 phone.
I just love these and I’m so happy. It made my trip more comfortable, enjoyable and convenient.
