White Sand of Sonrisa de V Resort, Samal

The white sand of Sonrisa de V resort, Samal in Davao City made me, my mom and the two kids to relax in the early breezy morning a day after the wedding of my cousin held on the same resort venue.

Along the white sandy shore of the resort lies the circular coconut-made beach cottages.

The kids really enjoy the clean and preserved underwater environment which is very evident with the starfish that I caught and other live marine organisms we saw.

Disney Cartoons at Sagbayan Peak, Bohol

Have I told you that I’ve been to Bohol already last year?

It was actually a very random plan we have. I was with my two classmates in medical school who decided, in no time, to immediately go to Bohol and explore what we haven’t had. The first stop  where we enjoyed most — we’re feeling childish, actually, was at Sagbayan Peak, Sagbayan, Bohol.

Why I said I was feeling childish because of the cartoon characters that welcomed us. They are not mascots but looking like real playful Disney characters that I could only see on TV.

I miss playing with those Disney toys!

We all feel we’re still in our younger years — 12 to 15 years of age. Aren’t we? LOL!

Quick Visit at Antequera, Bohol

I was very ecstatic to visit Ate Pinx and her family in Antequera, Bohol. Bohol is just a 2-hour jet ride from Cebu City, where I am at now, but stealing even a day or two to travel there is very difficult for me. I really have hard time inserting an unnecessary travel in terms of academic stuff. So when the school administration has announced that November 30, 2011 is an official non-working holiday, I really grabbed that opportunity to go and visit Bohol — Ate Pinx and her family.

I arrived at Tagbilaran Port around 12 noon of November 29, 2011. Ate Pinx, together with her family – Doc Noynoy, Bogs and Baby Job, brought me to Tagbilaran Island City Mall (ICM) where we also had our lunch. We just had an hour of roaming inside the mall and immediately went to Antequera, their hometown.

On the next day, Nov. 30, I woke up late — if am not mistaken, that was already around 9 o’clock in the morning since dokie has left already to the hospital. Enough to wait Badat Genevive to arrive in Bohol and get done with their important transactions in Tagbiliran City, Ate Pinx’s family and I headed back to Tagbiliranan City and fetch Badat for our lunch. But before we decided to try the delicious treats at The Buzzzz, a food and restaurant, we first had a site-seeing in Alona’s resorts in Panglao.

Not too long after we dine, past 3 o’clock in the afternoon, we went to the Tagbilaran City port for my ride back here in Cebu City by 4:10 in the afternoon.

Though we didn’t really tour the whole Panglao island or any other parts of Bohol, being with Ate Pinx’s family, and Badat too, were enough for me. Even as little as those number of hours to stay and be with them, we were all happy and enjoy knowing and sharing each others company.
