Those 2016 Travels: Aloguinsan Wanderlust

by - February 14, 2017

Hey Guys,

Want to share with you some of the photos I took during our wanderlust in Aloguinsan Cebu. Aloguinsan is a 4th municipal income class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. You can take a bus from Cebu South Terminal bound to Toledo and stop in Pinamungahan. After Pinamungahan, you can take a ride with "habal-habal" public motorcycle going to Aloguinsan Proper or take a jeepney. In Aloguinsan, you can choose many beaches or resorts that will take you to paradise. Their beaches are naturally cultivated and rich with starfishes, sea urchins, and other beautiful corals. People there were very hospitable and trustworthy. 

We got there exactly 8PM and directed our route in Hidden Cove Resort for a night to sleep. Hidden Cove Beach Resort has an affordable overnight rates good for a group of people (six persons).

After Hidden Cove, we went to Park Place Beach Resort.

Oh, this is breathtaking :)

We toured around the park and exploited its beauty by taking pictures. Well, before lunch time or 12PM our tourist guide from Aloguinsan Tourist Organization  asked us to get ready for our trip to Farm House located at the upper Aloguinsan where we rode a 'habal-habal' again and stayed there for a welcome morning snack which prepared by the hosts.

Inside the Farm house, you can witnessed how they grow Worms and Animals. You can also see their Bees with their Bee-Hives. Growing fruits and vegetables all over the place and variety of flowers too. This Farm House was made by the locals to get tourists' attraction and it is one of their livelihoods. The hosts welcomed us with fresh face towels soaked with floral scented  water to freshen our faces and hands then they asked us to  enter inside the Hut for a welcome snack. They served  Pinoy's delicacies such as  sweetened rice soaked with Coconut Milk or 'Biko', sweetened cooked banana, Hot Chocolate made from fresh Cocoa, Sweet potatoes, Freshly picked Ginger Lime Juice, 'Puto', and those sweets which I can't remember the names until now. :)

After the welcome snack, we rode again a  'habal-habal' to Bojo River for lunch and more fun activities. It took us ten minutes from Farm House to Bojo River located at the Upper Aloguinsan.

Welcome to Bojo River......

Our lunch was heaven :) But the memorable moment was when the local folks as our hosts greeted us with their local Cebuano song. It felt like a 'Foreigner' in our own country. Turista lang among mga peg :) with matching 'sab-it  sab-it ug garlands kanang bulak pang Hawaiian :P ' ....

Yummyyyyyyy :D

But before our lunch, we headed to explore a vast of green mangroves and got ourselves swimming at the mouth of the open sea connecting from  Bojo River. You can clearly see gardens of coral reefs and other underwater plants and fishes. Amazing place of Bojo River.....

(*will be posting the remaining photos, still searching them on my laptop :) )

Sad Songs

Once there was a boy who couldn't speak but owned a music box that held every song in all the world. One day he met a girl who had never heard a single melody in her entire life and so he played her his favorite song. He watched while her face lit up with wonder as the music filled the sky and the poetry of lyrics moved her in a way she had never felt before.

He would play his songs for her day after day and she would sit by him quietly—never seeming to mind that he could only speak to her through song. She loved everything he played for her, but of them all—she loved the sad songs best. So he began to play them more and more until eventually, sad songs were all she would hear.

One day, he noticed it had been a very long time since her last smile. When he asked her why, she took both his hands in hers and kissed them warmly. She thanked him for his gift of music and poetry but above all else—for showing her sadness because she had known neither of these things before him. But it was now time for her to go away—to find someone who could show her what happiness was.
