CDO – Accommodation

As I’ve mentioned on my Camiguin Accommodation post I’m not used in booking hotel accommodation prior to arrival date but I always make notes and search online. I checked other blogs too for recommendations. Our flight arrives in Lumbia Airport around 9:00 PM. It’s drizzling when we arrived. We took a cab going to the […]

7th Day – Last Day In The City of Smiles

7th Day – Last Day In The City of Smiles

Tuesday, our 7th day, is our last day in the city of smiles. We chose to spend it in a mall. Haha. As much as we want to we can’t afford another activity. Financially we’re almost drained. We went to Limketkai Mall around lunchtime. We left our things at the front desk. The shopping center is […]

Iligan City: Tinago Falls – A Sight to Behold

Iligan City: Tinago Falls – A Sight to Behold

If I’m bewitched and intimated by Maria Cristina Falls at the same time, Tinago Falls awed and calmed me. After a 500 steps descent to reach the falls,  its calming just to be near and seeing water cascading beautifully forming a basin-like pool. Truly a sight to behold. Tinago is a Filipino term meaning “hidden”, the falls being hidden in a […]

Iligan City: Bewitching Maria Cristina Falls

Iligan City: Bewitching Maria Cristina Falls

Until now I can’t believe I’m in Mindanao. I used to encounter the names of these towns and cities in my Sibika at Kultura and HEKASI books and in televisions only. And now I’m actually here touring. The feeling is surreal. I feel blessed to be able to experience all this. Being here for 7 days is actually […]

CDO: Sunday = Free Day

CDO: Sunday = Free Day

Sunday is our free day. No planned activity so anything goes. For the first time  on this trip we woke up late and we’re taking our time. Not in a hurry at all. We left the hotel 9:45 AM. We asked the front desk where’s the nearest BPI bank and they pointed us to Ororama, […]

CDO – Divisoria Night Market

CDO – Divisoria Night Market

Though tired from our Bukidnon Adventure we went out 8:30 PM for the Divisoria Night Market. It’s in our itinerary and it is just few minutes away from where we’re staying. The Plaza Divisoria (Golden Friendship Park) is so different from the usual sight were seeing ever since we arrived here. On weekdays its familiar to see people getting back […]

Bukidnon – Dahilayan Adventure Park

Bukidnon – Dahilayan Adventure Park

We set our alarm early for yet another adventure. We woke up 5:25 AM. While chatting with Earl there had been a brownout but just for few minutes. We readied ourselves and by 6:45 AM, we left the hotel to Agora Market. We asked our motorela driver to drop us to the van terminal to […]
