Photo Diary: Bantayan Island


The most awaited TEAM BUILDING has arrived after months of anticipation.

This year, HARDCORE TEAM decided to go FULL BLAST. The team building that united ingoing and outgoing HARDCORE MEMBERS (although two members weren't able to join due to some unforeseen circumstances.)

We left Cebu City to Hagnaya Port at around 4:20 in the morning. Oh boy! That was one tough 3 hour road trip for me. I was in a not so good state ( BIYAHILO ) as the V-hire was full, airconditioner on plus An I-DON'T-KNOW-HOW-TO-DESCRIBE-DRIVER. I tried my best to stay cool, in a good condition but my not so well state gave in.
>Minatay! Perte nakong suka sa sulod sa van<

Anyways, we arrived at Hagnaya Port at 6:30(ish) or something. Ug nihirit pa jud ko ug suka... grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! The toughest trip! Reanna even said:" DI KO KATOO DAY SA IMONG KALAAGAN NA INGON ANA KA!" hahahah

Enough of my not so interesting story and lemme share the photos I took during the trip. ^^




The sun at 7 am.

Houses and bangkas at Hagnaya Port


I fell in love the moment we arrived. Tell me how can I resist the white sand and the glorious colors of the sky and the sea? 

Ate breakfast somewhere near the PUBLIC MARKET because DEAD HUNGRY!


And when in Bantayan Island, don't you dare miss the public market and hoard various kinds of DRIEDFISH. Squids, octopus, danggit, tocino- NAME IT, THEY HAVE IT!


 And we found a treasure in an islet 15 minutes away from the main island.

We left the city at 7: something in the morning. We took Ze other Bratinella's Kuya's car. So Bus Fare going to Alcoy- ZERO pesos. 

We arrived at around 10 in the morning.The beach was jampacked with people when we arrived. It was 32° after all and everybody wants to cool down. There were tents, tables, beach umbrellas etc. everywhere.

We left the beach and headed for our next destination- Samboan's Aguinid Falls.

Camotes Island: Lake Danao


Last April 6, my friend (and fellow BRATINELLA) decided to go on a round trip to CAMOTES ISLAND. We left the city at 4;30 in the morning to Danao Port to catch the first trip which leaves at 6 in the morning. There were a lot of people lining up to buy the tickets. And I wasn't surprised at all. I already assumed that more visitors are heading t the island since the EASTER HOLIDAY is alredy over.


READY TO BOARD THE RORO. ^^

Travel time to CAMOTES takes THREE HOURS, so apart from CHILLING (watching the waves and listening to music) emjoying a WARM CUP OF COFFEE is a MUST!

Everything is just better with COFFEE...♥

LAKE DANAO has a pretty garden with a variety of flowers, too. And for a lady like me who loves flowers, HOW CAN I NOT HAVE A SELFIE TAKEN? ^^

MAJESTIC colours, isn't it? Sad to say, the other BRATINELLA cropped my other foot! :P


Took this using a GoPro. It was a fine Monday. Blessed with a very good weather  which is perf for taking photos. ♥




The 360° turn

My first KAYAK experience was SUPERB! I went kayaking with my friend. It was so good plus the price was pocket-friendly, too. I paid 50 pesos only for 30 minutes. Not bad! 

How to enjoy your COCONUT? Climb up the tree... :)






Timubo Cave 
* Had to pay 5 pesos for toll fee(?)
* Then paid 20 pesos for the entrance fee.

On my down Paraiso Cave. It's very lovely!
Had to pay 20 pesos for the entrance fee.


I had a very good dip down here. The water was so clear and so cold. 


THE SUNSET. Bye bye beautiful!


Had to end my post here. Look out for my next post about my day trip to Camotes Island.
