Alumbung Tropical Living

Posted by: Gibo

Hopefully, this will be the first of many. I have recently started a survey on hotels, resorts, inns and pension houses in Bohol with the hope of getting more personalized information from them regarding their places. First to respond is Bob of Alambung Tropical Living located in Panglao. His responses clearly exemplify the kind of hospitality they offer.

Would you rather a chicken foot or intestine?

Posted by: Sam and Steph

To get to Panglao Island from Cebu, we took the OceanJet ferry which took about 1.5 hours (air con and even a movie were included!) We arrived and were ambushed by the taxi drivers trying to take us to Alona Beach, we settled on a tricycle which was WAY MORE FUN! We stumbled upon a cheap room at Bohol Divers Resort and made that our camp for 3 nights. We were happy to finally be out of the big city and back to island living...able to really enjoy the popular beer of choice, San Miguel :)

The Bard from Bohol

Posted by: Gibo

When Boholanos talk about “our President”, there is a big chance we are not talking about the incumbent. More likely, we are talking about the first and only Philippine President who came from our dear province.

Carlos P. Garcia was born on November 4, 1896 in Talibon, Bohol to Policronio Garcia and Ambrosia Polistico. He grew up with politics in his blood, his father having served as Municipal Mayor for four (4) terms. He married pharmacist Leonila “Inday” Dimataga-Garcia and had one daughter named Linda Garcia who later married Fernando Campos.

Two Days in the Philippines

Posted by: Harmony

I had an awesome weekend! On Friday at 6pm, I flew to Manila, arrived at the airport and anxiously sorted through a sea of faces, trying to find Jane, the "girl in the red shirt". I finally found her, not long after I had started imagining how I might spend a weekend in Manila on my own. We were joined up by the rest of our group: three South Africans, one Hong Konger, two American Hong Kongers, Jane, and myself.

We stayed the night in Manila. Though I was only there for a very short time, Manila didn't give off a good vibe. I heard quite a few sirens through the night. We were greeted by a guard dog and a security check at the hotel entrance. I wasn't sad to leave early the next morning for our destination- Bohol.

Alona beach and farewell to the Philippines

Posted by Julia and Billy

After weeks of striking gold in terms of travel destinations in the Philippines, I knew that at some point, there would be a letdown. Sure enough, that was what happened to me in Alona beach. After Apo island I headed to Alona beach in Bohol. Bastian and I were still traveling together, so we took a boat back to the apocalyptic town of Malatapay and then hopped on a jeepney to Dumaguete. In Dumaguete it started to pour down rain, so we, and all of our possessions were thoroughly soaked. From Dumaguete, we took the speed ferry to Tagbilaran, Bohol and hopped in a cab to Alona beach (travel in the Philippines always involves a lot of steps).

Proud Boholano Donaire Dominates Maldonado

Posted by: John Gregg

One of boxing's best young champions was back at work and he left little doubt that he is one of the rising stars in the sport in 2007.

The winner of the Upset of the Year" award when he leveled Vic Darchinyan, IBF flyweight king Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire returned to the ring to make his first title defense and he scored a bloody 8th round TKO over Mexico's Luis Maldonado.

The 7 to 1 underdog, who scored a electrifying 5th round TKO over the heavily favored Darchinyan last July, came out blazing against the switch-hitting Maldonado; opening cuts over both of the challenger's eyes in the second round. Maldonado repeatedly returned fire but Donaire's power proved unstoppable and he dropped the challenger near the end of the 7th, after connecting with a hard uppercut followed by a scalding left hook to the chin.

Ananyana Resort, Bohol

Originally Posted @ Heart 2 Heart

Our group wanted to go somewhere we have never been to and this was a great choice! There are only 12 rooms and we used up 6 rooms so we practically had the place to ourselves. It was like our own private resort. It is only 5,000 sq. meters and from any part of the resort, you can see almost everything going on so it was easy to track the kids playing around.

Ananyana will always bring back good memories for all of us.

Bohol Bee Farm

Posted by: Leah TM

The Bohol Bee Farm is one of the places that one MUST visit when you are in Bohol. I myself never gets tired of coming here everytime I have the opportunity to do so.

I was with my father and two guests. We had breakfast there. I ordered my ever favorite "sikwate and puto maya". We were all given a complimentary array of home-made honey based spread. All these are sooo yummy when spread on the farm's very own freshly baked bread.
