Oh blog, I have missed you so!
Pardon the drama.
I’ve been so swamped with so much work that it’s overlapping my hobbies a bit.Such is the busy life of a career woman……. Eew! See what work is doing to me! (Panic mode)>.<
To make up for the silence, I’d like to share about the biggest event of my highschool friend’s life. She just tied the knot in Tubigon, Bohol and invited my other pals and I to join her in this grand celebration!
BOHOL DAY I
My pals with the beautiful bride… Her concept was somehow crafty, that is in my own words.. Normally brides are always dressed in white… Instead, she let her guests wear white so that she’ll be the star of the show… Haha! Gotcha, didn’t I? It was a cool concept though and she does the steal the spotlight, don’t you think?
Here I am doing my duty (Haha!) Thank God for my pal’s talented husband who accompanied me… I’d probably sound like a strangled cat without his masterful playing!
The creative and talented couple planned a Greek gods and goddesses theme and it turned out quite great! Love the decors and little details!
This is what you call, “Cowboy” style… Riding tricycles at night, no matter how high our heels! LOL! (In the end though, some of us were able to hitch a ride with the bride’s generous relative who took pity on us “Tourists” Thanks so much!) It was tiring, but we had fun all in all!
BOHOL DAY 2
Not wanting to miss out while we were in Bohol, we decided to take a day tour before we go home.
First stop was Sagbayan Peak where we could get a great view of the world known “Chocolate Hills”!
It always amazes me how God could come up with creations such as these!
He’s got spidey senses for me!
My favorite green guy!
Next stop was the Butterfly Farm… Our guide was loads of fun describing the different species of butterflies and moths.
Fuzzy wuzzy caterpillar!
These are moth Cocoons….
while these are Butterfly cocoons… Those shiny golden things? Yep, they’re real! We thought that they were just painted that way! Aren’t they cool or what?
Lunchin’ on some pollen!
Isn’t it beautiful?…. especially the one holding the pretty thing? ahem… Okeeeeeeyyyyy… movin’ on!
Next stop was the famous Man-made forest…. It was a sight to behold!
Off we went to the Tarsier Sanctuary and we met up with our distant relatives once again!
The cute bums were hanging around and slept all day. They’re nocturnal creatures after all. Totally sounds familiar to me! 😉
We were supposed to go on a river boat cruise but because of the many lines, we had to wait our turn. While waiting, I decided to try the well known “Malunggay” homemade Ice Cream while my friend on the side went for Chocolate. It truly did not disappoint! It’s probably one of the highlights of the trip… If given the chance to go back, I’d gulp it all down in a heartbeat!
Next off, we went for this hanging bridge….
…and I spotted two carabaos cooling off on the side! Awesome!
We then rushed to the port on our way back to our hometown. It was a short but memorable trip with my buddies and I hope that we get to do something like this again.
Even though I had to get back to the daily grind at work, I’d have to say the trip was totally worth it to take your mind off life’s troubles for a while.
So if you’re longing to take a break from the hustle and bustle of your busy life, take a side trip to Bohol, and just take in the serenity of nature and God’s creations! You’ll be glad you did!
Have a peaceful week you guys and To more trips and adventures to come! 😉
