Last weekend was spent in Bohol for a short vacation. My PILs flew to Bohol ahead of us so when we arrived there, their house in San Isidro (my MIL’s hometown) was spick and span already and we just needed to lie down and rest. We stayed in Bohol for 6D5N and our time was very sulit. We touched base with our relatives and friends there, we joined the festivities (the town fiesta was last May 15th), we checked out the malls in Tagbilaran and Tubigon (where I tried different ice cream flavors from the Buzz Cafe of Bohol Bee Farm), we went to my MIL’s farm, we procrastinated, we laughed, and we ate a loooooot (read: fiesta). We also booked an overnight stay at Henann Resort in Panglao Island which is arguably the biggest and the newest resort in Bohol right now (loved the massive swimming pools with bars and the festive vibe there!).
It was a super fun trip and we never wanted it to end. But as they say, good things don’t last so we’re now back in the Manila to work and save up money so we could fly to Bohol again next year. As for my PILs, they get a month-long paid vacation every year from their employer which they ALWAYS spend in Bohol. Lucky them!

Part of our short Bohol vacation last March 14 to 19, 2015 was a side trip to the beach. The hubby and I had a day tour at Panglao Island Nature Resort and Spa (PINRS). We initially wanted to stay overnight but our crazy schedule didn’t allow it. It was perfectly okay because after having a small chat with the lifeguard by the pool side, we found out we couldn’t afford an overnight accommodation there, anyway. Rooms start at P10,000 per night including dinner and breakfast. Ouch.
The day tour rate of PINRS is P550 per head, the P400 of it being consumable. Laking tipid, diba? It’s like we just paid P150 for the entrance and use of amenities, which I have to say, were very satisfactory. Let our pictures show you my point:

Note: This is an “extended” weekend story covering our short Bohol trip last March 14 to 19, 2015.
With the untimely death of the hubby’s grandmother, a trip to Bohol was imperative. The hubby and I went on leave for a few days so we could attend Lola Betty’s funeral service. We left for Tagbilaran City on Saturday and went back to Manila just yesterday.
Maayos naman ang naging burol ni Lola Betty sa kanilang bahay sa San Isidro, Bohol. Maraming taong dumating para makiramay. Nang silipin ko ang mukha nya sa ataul, nakita kong mapayapa naman ito. Sumali kami ng aking mister sa mga padasal at nakihalubilo sa mga bisita. Noong Linggo ang huling gabi ng lamay at talaga namang napuyat kaming lahat. Pero ayos lang, para naman yun kay Lola Betty. Bagama’t tunay na nakakalungkot ang pagkawala nya, naniniwala naman kami na nasa mas maayos na kalagayan na sya ngayon.
