When I came home here in Tagbilaran City, Bohol I noticed Agora Square is habitable with new stalls and restaurants occupying the ground floor. I didn't bother to go over and scan the new place, thought it can wait for another day. The next day one friend took me over there for merienda at Jojie's Painitang Bol-anon. It's great. The place, cozy and comfy. The food is very good, just like grandma serving you the same merienda of puto maya and tsokolate. It made me miss my lola. Anyway, the best part is that it's pain-free on the wallets and pockets. You don't have to shell out 100php for snacks like you do in fast-food restaurants. Health wise, it's an A+. I've read that drinking or ingesting cocoa used in tsokolate is one prevention on heart disease.

How to go to Panglao and enjoy it

We all know that in order to be productive we need breaks from work to breathe and refocus. I hope you find this post helpful.

My wife and I celebrated our 10th year anniversary. So to celebrate and make it memorable, I decided to surprise her with a 3 days--2 nights get-away.

We have our weekly dates, but this is the first time that we will be separated from our 10, 6 and 3 year old kids in 10 years.

My Memories of Bohol

My first time to visit Bohol was when my two officemates and I just decided to have a tour of Central Visayas for three days last 2004 starting November 5 when it’s Cinco de Noviembre holiday here in Negros Occidental.

From Bacolod City, we traveled by bus to Dumaguete City, Oriental Negros, toured the city and spent overnight there. The following day, we boarded the first trip via fast craft to Tagbilaran City, Bohol, toured the major tourist destinations the whole day. The following day, we again traveled via V-Hire to Toledo City, Cebu boarded a fast craft to San Carlos City, Negros Occidental and back to Bacolod City.

Bohol: There’s more to discover

SO YOU’VE heard about the strange landscape and unusual tiny animals. But after making up your mind to see the Chocolate Hills and the cute tarsiers, what else will you do in Bohol?

Many new properties have opened their doors in Bohol as the tourism industry has boomed. At the time of the Met Museum’s big exhibit on the art of the island province in 2003, there were only about 90,000 arrivals each year. This has since shot up to about 600,000 visitors annually.

Kayla’a Beach Resort of Dimiao, Bohol

I am proud to be a Boholano. With the pristine beaches and eco-tourism sites my province had, who can’t be proud of it? Well, I am sure if you’re such a traveller, you already had in mind about visiting Bohol. Or in fact you visited Bohol and you are coming back.

I know the resorts in Panglao are good. But there is a lot of things in Bohol other than the beaches in Panglao. I am talking about tourists to try the some other beaches of Bohol. This time, I am talking about Kayla’a Beach Resort which is nestled in the paradise cove of Dimiao, Bohol. The resort is really quiet and I can assure you of total serenity while in the resort. The ambience is really tropical that you don’t need to have an aircon inside your room. The cool breeze of the wind is enough to pamper your mood. The coconut trees growing inside the resort are a relaxing thing to see. While you are in your room, you can glance the volcanic island of Camiguin.

Breathtaking Bohol

Famous for its Chocolate Hills, Bohol is an island province in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. It comprises of the Bohol mainland plus 75 surrounding minor islands of which the Panglao Island is the biggest. It is also the home province of President Carlos P. Garcia, the fourth Philippine president, who was born in Talibon, Bohol.

Our start of the tour was the Clarin Ancestral House. Built in 1840, this typical Filipino-Spanish stone house was the residence of Don Aniceto Velez, former governor of Bohol and his son Jose Butalid Clarin, former president of the Senate.

Declared by the National Historical Institute as a heritage site, the Clarin House is now converted into a museum that displays a wide range of antiquities dating back to the Spanish and American period. The ground floor, turned into a café called Café Olegario, serves native Boholano delicacies such as rice cakes, hot chocolates, and yams.
