Visit Acaban Cave at Biliran Island

One of the interesting place that can be found in Biliran Island is the Acaban Cave aside from the waterfalls. It is located at Brgy Acaban, Culaba, Biliran; a 30 minute drive from Naval, Biliran’s Capital. The entrance fee is just P20 and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and crystal waters of the Acaban Cave.

The Cave of Acaban is wide enough to let the people enter it but the only accessible part of the cave is about 20ft from the opening. Legend has it that the Cave is not natural but man made. The caretaker of the place said that treasure hunter once blasted the cave believing that they can find a treasure in the area. I haven’t asked though if they were able to find one.

When you go swimming at Acaban Cave, make sure that you know how to swim because the water is too deep especially in the middle part. Bringing of life jacket is advised for the kids and even adults if they don’t know how to swim. Snorkeling is a fun activity when going to Acaban Cave because there are different type of fishes that you can see there. You can even feed them with bread. It’s definitely a must for the visitors of Biliran to have a look at Acaban Cave. I have here below a video presentation I made during my visit at Acaban Cave.

Oslob Ruins at Oslob Heriitage Park, Cebu

Another destination that can be found in Oslob, Cebu are the Oslob Ruins. The ruins are located at the town proper of Oslob and some of this buildings are built at around late 1800s. It’s just amazing that this buildings are still standing up until today although a lot of natural calamities have hit Cebu for the past few years. I am fond of visiting old places like this. Another nice place to visit is Bohol for their Old churches though I heard that it has been ruined by the earthquake few years back. So, here are some of the photos I took using my Nokia 808 Pureview at the Oslob Heritage Park of Cebu. Enjoy!

Whale Shark Watching at Oslob, Cebu

One of the fun activities you can do when visiting Cebu is the Whale Shark Watching at Oslob, Cebu. Whale Shark are the gentle giants that resides in tropical waters like the Philippines. Luckily, we have this chance of watching over them here in the Philippines. The Whale Sharks of Oslob are protected by the Local Government Unit and are permanently monitored by the Oslob Bantay Dagat. I and my family was able to visit the place last weekend and good thing the weather was cooperative. When going to Oslob, you can ride a bus from Cebu South Bus Terminal and should depart early because Whale Shark Watching is only open until 12:30p.m. I am not certain how much the fair is because we rented a car going to Oslob.  For the local tourists, Whale Shark watching will cost you P500 and P1000 for foreign tourist. Some rules that needs to be followed when watching is to avoid touching the whale sharks, maintain 4 meters distance from them, no applying of sunblock/sunscreen when swimming, no flash photography and no riding. Here are some of the photos I took during our Whale Shark Watching experience.

Photo from Wave 89.1; Bone posing for their Instagram

Last June 11, 2014 Bone Thugs-n-Harmony paid tribute to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (International name “Haiyan”) by having a benefit concert. As a BIG FAN of ‘em, I immediately book a ticket for the concert for me to watch them perform live and to help my fellow victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Yes, I am a survivor! Well anyway, I just want to showcase some of the photos I took during the Sound Check and Concert at SM Mall of Asia Arena and the Meet and Greet and after party event for SVIP ticket holders at Solaire.

Dragonfly Close-up Shot

I just thought this picture is worth sharing with. The dragonfly was so kind enough to cooperate with me during his photoshoot. When I took this photo, I was not really happy about it at first because the flash filled in. I forgot to turn off the flash and also I thought it’s no use because I have all the light I need from the sun. Luckily, everything went fine when I viewed the result. I hope you guys will like it.a
