A Short Adventure at Camiguin Island

So, this entry is quite overdue as my escapade at Camiguin Island already happened last 30th and 31th of October. Nonetheless, I know I must blog it still as I can truly say I did have fun at this popular tourist attraction in Mindanao.

Here’s a short trivia about Camiguin. It is an island province of the Philippines located in the Bohol Sea, about 10 km (6.2 mi) off the northern coast of Misamis Oriental in Mindanao. It is the second-smallest province both in population and land area after Batanes. The capital of the province is Mambajao, and it is a part of the Northern Mindanao Region of the Philippines.

How to get there? You can travel by air or sea depending on your origin. Visit this link here for more details.  Read more of this post

Kagay-an Fiesta

Everyone loves fiesta, especially us, Filipinos. I must say that the most fun part of it is feeding our tummies (LOL!). In my native hometown, Cagayan de Oro, we celebrate the city fiesta by the month of August. St. Augustine, is the patron saint and the Kagay-anons celebrates his feast day every 28th.

Below is the official schedule for the Kagay-an Festival core events.

Of course, there’s gonna be mall-wide sale, which will surely entice all shoppers. Children and adults alike should also visit the Mary Rose Carnival at Limketkai Center to experience some of its adrenaline-rushy rides!

To all my fellow Kagay-anons, let’s all support the core events. Have a great fiesta ahead!

Meanwhile, below are some of the photos happening in the city during the festivities.

        


Post-Summer Getaway at Boracay

 This year, I had the rare chance of going to one of the country’s as well as the world’s best beaches — Boracay Island! My blogger-friend who loves to travel happened to invite me and a couple of her other friends to visit this famous 7-km. long island early this year. Of course, I was so excited (she did all the bookings and ticket reservations, by the way, LOL)!

So, we traveled from Cagayan de Oro to Cebu, then from Cebu to Caticlan, Aklan. The weather was fairly good though compared to that

of Cebu’s. From there we took a tricycle ride (their primary means of land transportation) to the municipality of Malay, where we finally had to hop in to a boat going to Boracay.  Read more of this post

Travel in Cagayan de Oro

Summer is just around the corner! I, for one, can’t wait to have a summer get-away pretty, pretty soon! Being a Kagay-anon, I must admit I must be able to experience White Water Rafting and the newest adrenaline-rush tourist destination, Jatico Adventures! The latter is very much interesting since it caters the following: Zipline, Big Swing, Boot Camp, Bungee Trampoline and Zorb! How cool is that? Super!

Will write a follow-up blog about this as soon as I have explored them all!

Iligan Waterfalls Escapade

Location: Iligan City, Lanao del Norte, Mindanao, Philippines
Date: 29 Nov. 2009

More than a year ago, my colleagues and I went to Iligan City, basically to explore its waterfalls! It took us about two hours more or less, to travel with our private vehicle If you want to ride via public transportation, buses are available at Westbound Terminal, Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City.

Along our way, I felt a bit drowsy at first. But as soon we reached El Salvador Misamis Oriental, we were excited to see the enormous statue of the Divine Mercy. We also enjoyed the view of the beaches since it was a sunny day. Finally, we arrived in Iligan, and our first stop was Maria Cristina Falls. Pacing along the hallway towards the falls, the picturesque view truly awed our faces!

The splendid view of Ma. Cristina Falls!
