Davao Oriental is a very nice place. Oriental means "east". Davao Oriental is located eastern Mindanao. It lies along the eastern coastline facing the "world's largest ocean", the Pacific Ocean.
That's why San Luis has a long beach long.

There are also rivers found here in Caraga. The Manurigao River found in the northern part of the municapality and the Caraga River, found in the southern part.

One destination we've been is the beach. My mother-in-law's family came here. And so we went for a vacation because she's boasting that the beaches here are so beautiful with black sand and waves from the open ocean.

This was already my second visit here in Caraga. My first visit was just a wonderful experience. We ate "kinilaw na pusit". A fresh catch from the sea. The sunset was beautiful. By then, while getting dark, we lighted a bonfire. Watching the waves and the heavy sound as it approaches the shore.

My second visit experience in this beach line was extraordinary. Eating native delicacies like lechon, kinilaw and sugba (grilled). While eating, you can see the water sparkling because of the sun's reflection. And when you're swimming on the beach, you can see your feet underneath. The waves are massaging your back. Foot scrub with the sand. All in one treat and pampering yourself.

We had a lot of fun.
Very relaxing.
The sounds of the waves.
The breeze..
A surely must visited place in Davao Oriental.

Sibadan Fish Cage - Surigao del Sur

A few minutes boat ride from Enchanted River. Since there are limited tables and chairs for lunch, we decided to take our lunch at Sibadan Fish Cage.

Before you get there, there are a lot of nice scenes. Clear waters. Amazing islets. Even huts standing in the middle of the waters.

Anyways, lets go to Sibadan Fish Cage.
Visitors can swim and do fishing.

This is my favorite! Eating time. We ordered crabs. Surigao is very rich with seafoods. Name it! Must-try is their dried seaweeds. I didn't got a chance to take some because it is order basis. Order now, you get it the next day. To sad because we don't have much time to staying in Surigao. I planned to make some salad from seaweeds.. Tsk tsk tsk... I'm so frustrated... hehehe

Wait till my next blog.. I will post the Tinuy-an Falls. I love this falls..

By the Sea

It's summertime here in the Philippines! Here are my photos of some of the beaches I've been. I seldom swim. But I always took photos that captures my attention. I usually get fascinated and amazed on the different moods of the sea.
My first photo was taken at Maxima Aqua Fun in Samal Island, Davao. Wishing that someday I can experience island hopping!
I don't know what was in my mind when taking this photo. A big rock (i think this is a coral stone) with small soft waves. Very gentle.
I love this photo! It's one of my favourites! Taken in Sigaboy, Davao Oriental. The mangrove trees, the sea and the sunset. Very relaxing scenery. For me, this is an anti-stress moment. Sitting outside while sipping some coffee and reminiscing.
My next photo was taken in Caraga, Davao Oriental. Breathtaking scenery! For the first time in my life, I stood in front of Pacific Ocean! Looks like gentle waves, but its kinda a heavy one! It's like massaging your back as it hit you.
Taken in Panglao, Bohol. Waves here is different. Very gentle.
Enjoy the summer and let's hit the waves!

Nature in Bohol

This is my third post about Bohol. All about nature.
This is the Alona Beach at Panglao. We arrived around sunset. And this is what I got! A beautiful sunset view that wants me to swim because of its gentle waves rushing to the shore.
The famous Chocolate Hills of Bohol! At last! What a wonderful creation. Amazing!
The Man-made Forest. I just love to see the leaves fall.. I want to take some photos of them falling but unfortunately we are catching up the time for the Loboc River Lunch!
Up close in personal.. A Tarsier in Tarsier Conservatory, Loboc, Bohol. Very cute!
Another first time in Bohol --- Crossing across a hanging bridge!! What freaks me most is that my colleagues are jumping and I'm in the middle of the bridge! Very nice experience! hehe
The Loboc River. Lunch while sailing along the river... Unforgettable experience with the floating restaurant!
Two thumbs up for Bohol Tour!

Windy and Chilly Christmas!

This day kinda cold and chilly. But of course, going to the beach is exciting! hehe here are some of my photos in Samal Island. Oh yes! A little bit windy while crossing the sea.. The waves are moderate. So its not so freaky for me. hehe
This is my first photo. Low tide..
Caliclic Resort. Caliclic, Babak, Island Garden City of Samal.
The wind start getting stronger. The tide is getting higher. And all of us are 10 meters away from the shore! Chilly...
At last, milder.. Back in taking pictures again! hehe
Back to Davao City.. But before going back, I took a picture of the Port of Davao... Lights onboard...

Merry Christmas to all!

Camiguin (Island Born of Fire)

Camiguin is called "Born of Fire". Located in the Northern Mindanao, Philippines. It was created by volcanic eruptions and land movements. It is a small island with lots of natural resources. There are hot and cold springs, waterfalls, mountains and beaches. I like here because they have a simple living and peaceful atmosphere for the residents.

The famous Katibawasan Falls.

Sunken Cemetery. The large white cross is very historical. A cemetery was gone because of the eruption of Old Vulcan Daan in 1871. Very nice place especially during sunset.

White Island. Well, literally, it is white because of its sand. It changes its shape and size with the season. No trees, no shade.
But its worth coming for!

The place is very beautiful! You'll never regret staying in Camiguin!

Hello Caraga!

Its been a while since my last blog. I'm so happy because I didn't expect that my Pagerank is 2! For how many years, I waited for this! hehehe

I would like to share my trip to Caraga. The hometown of my boyfriend. We went there with my family for some business reasons. Anyways, I love the place! Located somewhere in Davao Oriental. But these photos are taken somewhere in Mati.

This is called "Sleeping Dinosaur Island". Very amazing because it looks like a sleeping dinosaur!

Coastal road going to Mati.

For the first time! Got a picture that has a reflection of the sky! hehehe

This is Caraga coast. I didn't swim.. Know why? I'm afraid! It's facing Pacific Ocean!

See? Facing the Pacific! The waves are calm. But the idea that its facing a vast ocean, I'm scared!

It's time to go back to the house where we stayed. Getting darker... and also getting the most out of the sunset!

Well, till next blogging moment! Hope you like the photos!

Memories of Summer

Summer is over. But still scanning my collections. Wondering what will I share to all of you. I got busy with my work and other stuffs. Its been a while and I really miss blogging..

This pictures are taken during our summer outing (company treat). I enjoyed playing and shooting with my camera at Bluewaters, Samal.

The horizon that caught my attention.

Love the beach!! The white sand and blue water..

The corals..

I love this picture! It's unusual. The spiral cloud. The lovely day..

Summer is over and hopefully I can get shots of rainy season one of these days. hehe

Beachscape... Maxima Aqua Fun...

We often want a place to relax. Feel the heat of the sun. Feel the air brushing our skin. We sometimes want to escape from the busy city we live in. And so here some of the beaches in Island Garden City of Samal. Its a 15-30 minutes boat ride from Davao City.

The Maxima Aqua Fun. There are swimming, kayaking, fishing and snorkeling. Enjoy the giant slide that gets you dive to the abyss. But don't worry, there are lifeguards around to keep you safe.

Next is the sunset that shadows the shore... The tranquility of the sea really soothes your senses. Big help to recharge from a stressful career life. hehe

The boat that you see in this picture is the one for island hopping. Didn't have a chance for this island hopping adventure because there is reservation beforehand.

Summer is almost over. Hope you can have your get away too!

My Birthday Adventure (Part 3)

Well, I think this is my last post for my birthday adventure. And this is all about creatures that we found during our vacation.

Got this photo of a frog at the first falls. I found this interesting because it camouflaged the wall of the falls. This is very small. About two-inch I think.

Little spidy near the falls. Very very small spider. I had a hard time focusing the subject. But thanks to camera. It works!

I don't know what kind of sea creature is this. I like the colorful spikes! They won't hurt you. They said this can be eaten. I wonder what's the taste of this...

The last but not the least.. This is my favorite shot! Sea Urchin.

Anyways, today is Mother's day. Happy Mother's Day to my mom and to all moms out there!
