When I Committed Suislide

19 Apr

And I did it…yes, we did it!

Suisliding was my first ever extreme adventure! My husband and I successfully survived the 480 meter zipline called “Suislide”. At an altitude of 200meter, suislide they say is the highest and longest zipline in the Philippines. It is found in Danao Adventure Park, Bohol. Continue reading

Sand and Water of Camiguin White Island, Philippines

11 Apr

White Island is the only area in Camiguin that has not been ruined by the volcanic eruption that killed thousands of people. Because White Island was spared, the beach’s sand remained white compared to other beach resorts in the area having black sands.

White Island is a white sand bar which forms letter C or sometimes I depending on the wave movement.

White Island takes refuge from Mt. Hibok-Hibok that stood still (at the background) as though the mounts were protecting the sea.

The sand granules of White Island are of purest white, hence the name.

And the waters are crystal clear. Very clean and is best for swimming and snorkeling, but not advisable for longer stays as there are no shades, cottages in the shore.

SO, what have I learned from this travel?

Just a thought about sand and water. I learned that sand and water are two purifying things. In marriage or any relationships, there are grains of sand in the form of personality differences, pride, and many others that cling to your skin and irritate it in ways that make you uncomfortable, but when the waves of love kiss the shore of your heart, the irritation, anger, and impatience will all be washed away. As the waters of forgiveness caress the shores of your heart and as the sands of devotion rub your pride away, you will be cleansed and purified and become a better, mature person 😉

Yes! We Ate the Biggest Croc in the World.

10 Apr

We spent the holy week at the home of the world’s largest saltwater crocodile in captivity.

National Geographic Channel’s zoologist and crocodile expert Dr. Adam Britton measured Lolong (the name of the biggest crocodile) at 21 feet and three inches.

Lolong was captured in Agusan marsh after locals suspected the giant reptile was the one that ate a missing fisherman and several carabaos. Lolong is being housed in an eco-park in Bunawan town.

And I like how the town of Lolong maintained it’s freshness and novelty where the air is so fresh and the surroundings are clean.

As though I was brought back into the primitive.

Where greens are just but…ancient.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said, however, that Lolong should be returned to its natural habitat.

“This world is not my home…I’m just a passing through”.
