Twin Tragedy

Posted by: Miko Cañares

I was dumbfounded reading the news on November 18 about two boys who died in San Isidro, Pilar - drowned in a well near their house while their parents were in the fields and an elder brother was watching TV. Though I have not seen nor known the boys personally, I feel a deep sense of remorse and regret, and an unexplainable sense of sadness swept over me.

It is maybe because I am a father that I can very well relate how such a grave loss could affect one immensely. Or maybe because I know Pilar quite well, because I have worked there when I was still very young and free of cares, that those children, faceless as they were in the news story I was reading, brought vivid images of children in Pilar that I have talked to in my endless wanderings in the rice fields.

A European's View of Bohol

Posted by: Vincent Vanderveken

Bohol, the 10th biggest island of the Philippines (out of ± 7107) is situated just south of Cebu city has a wide array of possible attractions. The thing I loved about it is that you can start (and end) your days laid back on a fabulous white sand beach enjoying a Piña Colada while feeling you’ve actually done some mileage and accomplished something during the daytime. There is a lot exploring to do on the ever changing scenery of this captivating island.

Bohol Family Vacation

Posted by: Joy Reyes

Went to the airport around 4am. The little girl was too excited to go to the beach “like hi5″ so she was all smiles and didn’t have enough time to get cranky. Her ears hurt so bad though that I had to breastfeed her to make it stop.

Reached bohol at exactly 7am. Our tour guide Mang Jun is very professional and you can feel how much he loves his town. We were very tired because we only slept like one hour the night before so the three of us nods off every now and then throughout the entire tour. I feel bad about this because Mang Jun have so many stories that he want to share. So I suggest to book a countryside tour when you’re feeling refreshed and awake.

Bohol is so clean and apparently, crime-free. We saw old houses, mangroves, swordsmiths, and tricycles with words of God at the back.

Christmas in Bohol

Posted by: Gibo

I remember several years back, when I and my sisters were still students at the universities here in Manila, our parents decided to come here from Bohol for the Christmas season. On Christmas eve, just as we always did before, we prepared for noche buena. Then, at around 10pm, our father and mother started dressing up to attend the midnight mass.

3rd stop - Panglao Island, Bohol

Posted By: Ma. Reneelene Perez Prieto

We were picked up from the ferry terminal in Tagbilaran by a hotel rep. Mejo malayo pa ang Panglao from the terminal, 45 mins - 1 hour drive. We reached our hotel at 5pm na. We stayed at Amorita Resort which is located on top of a cliff, you have a beautiful view of the sea. The place is still under construction, actually finishing touches na lang siya. We booked a Gardenview villa as all the Oceanview villas were fully-booked at that time. Ok lang naman kasi pare-pareho lang naman itsura ng villa, all villas have their own private pool/jacuzzi. It was uneasy taking a shower at their outdoor bathroom (naked hehe), feeling mo may nanonood sayo haha, baka maya ma scandal pa ko wahaha. Basta highly-recommended ko tong resort na to, check out their site….
