Goodbye Blue Skies

I was so overwhelmed with blue skies for the past days.  We arrived in Bohol Thursday morning and right away I fell in love with its clean blue skies.  The blue green deep waters are so inviting that even for someone who is scared of the deep longs to jump in the water and swim.


But today, I say bye to the blue skies because we are heading back to Iligan City – the original home.  I have made several adopted homes around the world but there is no sweeter home than the real home.

I guess everyone feels that way, too.

Green Monday # 8

It was one sunny day and the waters are deep blue and green. Great way to enjoy the crystal clear water. But my daughter thinks it’s too hot so she enjoys the shade while I enjoy the water:

Under this green water are very colorful little fishes:

The water is just chest deep but i need to use a life vest to let me float. lol!

How i wish that people will continue to preserve our green environment. Not just the plants and trees but also our seas and lakes.

The view that greets me when i go out of our cottage door. We are currently in a beach resort and tomorrow is our last day. The next day we will be traveling back to Mindanao.

Anyway here are more greens:

When you approach the resort, you will observe that the place is being covered with GREENS – trees here and there. That is why it is so relaxing and so pleasant here to be in the midst of nature.

Some of the green plants around:

We Were There

Me and my daughter. First time to travel that route. There were worries but good thing the travel went on fine. I was able to follow instructions very well. =)

It was still early for the storm to form up. This was taken around 11 in the morning.

Sky Watching on New Year’s Day!

We traveled that day. From the resort (cabilao island) to the mainland (Bohol) and then from Jagna to Cagayan de Oro City. It was a rainy day. Some hours raining and showering and some hours the sky is just filled with thick clouds. Looks gloomy but deep in me i look forward to be home as i also miss my mom.  And i know i need to be home that day because right the next day students will start arriving.  And am right, before i reached the dorm, two students have arrived already.

Took this photo around 9:30 in the morning

That’s the only glimpse of the golden sun during that day.  Around 4 in the afternoon.

Christmas Day 2010

Our Weekend Memoirs

Christmas Day 2010 was spent away from home. Dimple and I spent it in one of the resort islands in Bohol. Christmas night was spent away from the loud blasts of Christmas firecrackers that fills the city air.

What i love about it was the simple but special dinner of fish steak and jackfruit salad and the monggo bean soup.  Though for those who eats pork they can chose between the fish steak or the meat balls.

Here’s a few of my Christmas day photos. 🙂

The food! Together with this was the soup and mango shake to treat the sweet tooth. 🙂

One of the family guests enjoying their Christmas dinner.

The dancing Santa girls. 🙂 entertaining us with a dance.

The Achy Breaky Heart dance for everyone

The singing and dancing lasted for hours.  I thought i would not moved out of my seat but i did and it feels like a had more than an hour of gym time. lol!  Hit the bed at almost 1 am.  But before ending this post, here’s my last photo,

the fire of the Christmas spirit 🙂

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas weekend.

12 Days and Counting

We are away from my hometown for 12 days.  Six days has already passed and we are counting to the 12.  How i wish time would stop so that it would be forever holiday and there is no work but just live a life with no pressure.  But life is not like that.

It’s our 6th day in Bohol particularly in La Estrella Resort but i’ve spent only 1 full day at the resort and that was on Christmas Day (December 25, 2010).  All the other 5 days are spent away from the island.  Today was the 5th and Dimple was left behind as there were guests who traveled with us to Tagbilaran and on our way back, we also had 5 guests whom we met at the airport.  So we were full and just no space for Dimple. With the 5 days always leaving the resort, it feels like i started to feel that the trip is getting shorter and shorter but still i haven’t let go of the fear crossing the sea space between Mucpoc and La Estrella.  I have this fear of the sea because i can’t swim fgs! lol!

We arrived sometime before 7 pm and she was at the gazebo Facebooking.  I asked her how was her day and she said that she spent it  reading and she got online not very long before we arrived.

Anyway, i thought of posting a couple of pictures i took for a day.  I will post it in my photo blog so you can check out my photo blog from time to time.

I really need to do updates in all of my blogs.  I have this lappy with me and i can get online on the schedule times but most of the time am away from the resort and when we get back in the evening, Dimple is there. If there is no wifi then she has her anime movies.  So i almost don’t own my lappy.  She feels like she’s the owner. lol!
