kinda lost in bgc
Woke up super early to go see the dolphins. What seemed to be early for us was still late. We were supposed to leave at 5 since the dolphins only show up at a certain temperature but yeah my brother was so pachicks that time so we left a little bit late.
It was a long ass boat ride and there wasn’t any dolphins in sight but then my dad, brother and I spotted a dolphin, the little fella was alone and we only saw the back fin and we were already so happy. There wasn’t a guarantee that we’ll see more to we didn’t expect.
There was an area where all the dolphins hang out and the boats were chasing them. A part of me was feeling sorry for the dolphins but another part of me was amused because the dolphins kind of liked the attention too. (minus the noisy motor boats that scared them off)
The dolphins were putting on a show for all of us. They would split up and confuse people on where they were really going. You can hear their high-pitched tones. AH THE JOY
After the dolphin chase, we went to this island to have breakfast
THAT GOAT WAS SUPER CUTE I WANTED TO RUN TO HIM OH MY GOODNESS LOOK AT HIM SO CUTE
Then after eating we roamed around the island then got back to Alona. We slept all day because we were damn tired.
Ended the day on the front porch, listening to arttm, and eavesdropping on the foreigners on the pool lol. I had so much fun. You prolly would say that there are more dolphins on ocean adventure and it’s super near but there’s this unexplainable feeling you get when you see them out on the wild. AAAH THE JOY
Please ignore the fact that the photo’s out of focus.I kinda miss balancing things on my head. The last photo of me and this bearbank that I’ve had for a while now. You have served me well little one. A little more and hello BAZOOKA ROCKS IT IS!!
I recently found out that there will be another Bazooka Rocks concert this August and I am going to pull all the stops to make this concert possible. I just finished counting all the loose coins around my room and wow have I really kept this amount of coins hidden away or scattered in my room for so long? Anyway, I will do whatever it takes. Just to watch this concert. I want this so bad you don’t even know.
Anonymous asked: jill I dreamt of you being a little mermaid in a school play bc the theme is Disney princesses and then we switched places and basta it's so funny hahahahahah -globe
woah there slowdown HAHAHAH thank you for dreaming of me, one of my dreams was to be a mermaid and to be dreamt by someone else so basically, you dreamt of my dream and made my dream come true! c:
Picked up my grandma and brother at the airport and went on with the tour around the island.
first stop was the sandugo shrine, it was waaay hot to take photos but we still did and upon leaving, this kuya rushed to us and handed us a photo of us, it only took him a minute to process everything so we had no choice but to pay for it even though we didn’t ask for it hehe
We had lunch at the famous floating restaurant in Loboc
then we stopped by this place where the aeta’s were showing us their way of living,people breathing fire and children playing with big lizards were super normal for them.
people there were so good at diving, they would do 360’s and flips like a pro
He’s staring into your soul..
After lunch, we went to the butterfly sanctuary! I get so excited when I go to places which involves butterflies because it’s the only time I get to use my zoom lens without being judged and I get to feel like a pro (with the sneaking in and all HAHAHAH ok)
It’s the dude from bug’s life!!!!!!I literally jumped for joy when I saw this guy ‘cos I can imagine him talking with the accent from the movie :”> I wanted to touch and pet him but I was afraid I might drop him and accidentally squish him and crush his dreams of becoming a beautiful butterfly :c
remember when I said that I was super excited to shoot butterflies? WELL IT DIDN’T HAPPEN, turns out the kuya from the sanctuary liked photography too so he borrowed my camera and shot butterflies all to himself so ALL the butterfly photos were shot by him HAHAHAH :( Mind you, he knows the settings and all, preferred to use the manual focus and even switched it to macro mode. UH-MAZE-ING!!!
No visit in Bohol is ever complete without visiting the Tarsiers.
WHAT A CREATURE.
It looks so cute and we weren’t allowed to take photos with a flash ‘cos the kuya said they were suicidal when stressed and this guy took a picture and the flash came on and my heart skipped a beat because I thought I was going to witness a suicide act from a freakin’ Tarsier..
THE Chocolate hills!The way up there was crazy! 200+ steps so make sure you have a nice pair of knees.
I was a bit confused because some were green, some were turning brown but I have made a conclusion, it is not just the chocolate hills, they’re KitKat green tea chocolate bars melting from the sun’s heat c:
WHAT A TOURIST…
Then on our way home, we stopped by the man-made forest which reminded me of the town Forks, the one where Bella lives in, yes? The place was full of tall mahogany trees that it even seemed like night time when you’re in there even though it’s only 3 in the afternoon.
Rode a plane to Tagbiliran and arrived at noon, the airport was crayyy! Especially outside because taxi drivers and a bunch of other people are trying to get to you. It was crazy!!
We ate lunch then let the driver drive us all the way to Alona beach in Panglao (which was a 45-minute drive from the airport) and took a nap then strolled at the beach after
Mr. Crabs and his realtives! hehe
I used my prime that night and I was wondering why were all the photos so dark, I already adjusted everything but it was till too dark. Then I looked at my aperture and it was set to f 3.5 (hayy jill, you never learn) so that explains the ugly burst of the bulbs on the picture above because I had to compensate the darkness through the shutter speed even though I can adjust the aperture to 1.8 naman -.-
Had liempo for dinner and the food there was super cheap!
that’s all for now folks!
A photo for every place I’ve been to. I’m already home from my week-long adventure down south and I feel so happy that we get to call amazing places like these ours.
