* Nais ko lang pong linawin na ang tunay na pangalan ni marimar ay Mario ngunit mas gusto nyang matawag na Marimar 😀
habang dinadigest pa namin ang kakatapos na performance ni marimar, biglang may lumapit na tour guide kay Ardee.
tour guide: pare, crush ka nya (pertaining to marimar). binulong nya sa akin.
ardee: (biglang takot ang itsura) tara na, tara na! dali! (sabay nagmamadaling umalis papunta sa parking at pasok agad sa sasakyan)
my, emie and manong rolly: tawa to the max habang hinahabol si ardee hihihi.
pero syempre nag-alala rin ako kasi baka harangin nga si ardee…wawa naman…………kami ni emie kasi maaabala kami wahahaha. joke!
wag kang mag-alala ardee. di namin papayagan na maagaw ka sa amin ni marimar haha.
Today is dolphin and whale watching day. Our guide (Rye) fetched us at exactly 5:45 AM so we had to wake up really early.
A visit in this area is not included in the tour but we requested it. It’s a must see! The small island is beautiful. Yung white area sa picture na karugtong ng island, sand yun na umaabot sa gitna ng dagat. Pwede mong lakarin hanggang sa dulo nya. It’s not dangerous because it’s not too deep. Amazing talaga to. But you need to go here during high tide only. Sasayad daw kasi ang bangka pag low tide.
Daks and Gams Wildlife Park
There are several animals to see here. I was saddened by the place though because it was not well-maintained. But then, it’s still worth the visit.
There are bulbs inside to light the place. There’s a pool where people are allowed to swim. The lifeguard was kind enough to take our pictures (lots!). The painting above was painted by a foreign actor who filmed a movie in the area. The birds’ nest are also the ingredient of the famous bird’s nest soup.
According to the guide, the well served as the source of potable water for those stranded inside the church during the war. And by the way, this is not a wishing well.
Bohol Bee Farm
The ingredients in their menu come from their farm directly so you can be assured of a fresh meal. For lunch, I ordered the honey glazed chicken and the home made ice cream for dessert. It was heaven. Yes, the flowers you see in the picture are edible, and part of the salad. 🙂 While waiting for our food, they also served us a sample of their camote bread with honey, pesto and mango dips. All their dips are delicious. Worth the money when you buy.
Before the tour, we had breakfast at Joving’s, and then we asked Manong Rolly to drive us first to the mall for some groceries.
Baclayon Church and museum. Picture taking is not allowed inside the museum though.
The famous Buko King. I saw him featured in one of the TV programs before. It was nice to see him in person and to witness his skill personally. At mabilis nga talagang magbalat ng buko using his teeth. Wala pa siguro 15 seconds yun.
There’s only an area where you can see them. They have a different sanctuary. We were because the manong allowed us to hold them. 🙂 We already bought some souveniers here.
We also went to see the python (so large!) but I did not take any pictures of it. Takot ako eh. :p
Last stop for the day was at Aproniana Gift Shop. We just bought some peanut kisses here. Shirts are expensive I think.
