After almost a month on Bantayan we decided to try something new, so we decided on a daytrip over to Virgin Island. We spoke to the caretaker where we are staying and she said her husband could arrange a banca over to the Island for the day and that we could also stop at a neighbouring Island, Isla Cabaliod, to buy some fresh fish and Squid. Our neighbours Dave and Marjory also thought this sounded like a good plan, so we decided to set off at 7 am the next morning, taking our Caretaker Mianne and her husband Romeo along with us. First stop was Isla Cabaliod where we bought a freshly caught 3.6 kilo Tuna and lots of Squid. Then short banca ride to Virgin Island. Didnt think Bantayan could get much better, but the ... read more

« Le dernier luxe de notre temps réside dans l'art de ne rien faire, mais de le faire bien » Voilà une jolie phrase pour résumer ma dernière semaine. Concrètement il ne se sera pas passé grand chose les premiers jours que composent ce post. Avec Simon on aura mollusqué pendant toute la semaine sur deux îles différentes ou la moultitude d'activités ne faisaient pas rage. Notre première île fût Bantayan, une sorte de petit Boracay pas encore trop colonisé par les touristes (ou je n'aurais malheureusement pas l'occasion d'aller pendant ce voyage). J'ai même presque envie de dire que c'est un euphémisme. En 4 jours sur place, on aura croisé aucun jeunes de notre âge. Étant donné les infrastructures sur l'île (le nombre d'hôtel), je pense qu'on était clairement ici en basse saison et même ... read more

Asia » Philippines » Cebu » Malapascua August 22nd 2013

Day 30 – Perhentians and onwards I woke up the next day and relaxed until 11am. I took my stuff to Coral Bay, caught the next ferry to Kuala Besut, the public bus onward to Kota Bharu, and finally a taxi to the airport. First I flew to Kuala Lumpur and changed airports to fly to Manila and onwards to Cebu in the Philippines. Day 31- To Malapascua From Cebu, I caught a taxi to the Northern Bus Terminal, and had a 4.5 hour bus ride to the port town of Maya. Just as I arrived a boat to Malapascua was leaving, but one ended up leaving 20 minutes later. I arrived on Malapascua, found my hotel and settled into the first bed in over a week. I washed all my clothes, set up diving for ... read more

Borneo We left Gili T and had a night in Lombok before we flew to KL and from there to Kota Kinabalu in Borneo. We found a hostel and booked our trip to Mount Kinabalu; we had a few days wait so we explored and visited the cinema a few times. The climb was the worst thing I've ever done but I'm not going to detail it all here as I don't want to bore you all with it. Basically we walked for 6km uphill and it was relentless! After a night of absolutely no sleep and a banging headache we started the summit climb at 2.30 am and eventually made it to Lowes Peak 4,095m above sea level; my sister recommended this trip for us and said it was the best trek she had ever ... read more

I was amazed that the event place went bigger wilder and crazier than ever. The place went bigger just to cater a new set of party people. Before it was just full of La Sallians partying, but now that it became more famous than ever the crowd was full of different types of people from ages 18 to 28 years old. I was shocked with the crowd. I think people from last year’s Sinulog were jealous so most of the people booked a flight. Baseline’s Street party started at 12:30 and ended up till 4 in the morning. The crowd was even wilder than ever, everyone kept putting facepaint on strangers and most of the people was throwing beer and water at the crowd. I’ve seen so many people who got wasted and just passed out ... read more
