Bonfire valentines in the cool hills of Bukidnon roasting marshmallows. A happy valentines night with my Pengpeng. Thank you Lord for this wonderful time and place. #valentines #bonfire #campfire #marshmallows #fujifilmxa2 #mirrorless #fujinon1655mm #fujifilmph #10secondstimer #ultrawindsmountainresort #bukidnon #travelph #thankyoujesus #nofilter
The hotel room type. A bit more expensive… from P2,250 for Upper Deluxe Double to P3,999 for the Premiere King. Superior King and Deluxe Double are priced the same at P2,350. #ultrawindsmountainresort #baungonbukidnon #mindanao #philippines #canon60d #canon2470 #instablogger #instacollage #photoblogger #ayosaoiultrawinds
Antipasta Misto – assorted cold cuts and cheese @ Guiseppe Pizzeria & Sicilian Roast, Gastronomia & Wines. Trust me, this is actually a huge serving (at least for us). We only had this for dinner and we decided to a have the pizza the next day instead. Each types of cheese with cold cut meat in your mouth seems to explode with amazing flavors. All these just for P400. #panglao #bohol #guiseppe #guiseppebohol #italianfood #foodporn #cheese #coldcuts #canon60d #canonlens #canon2470 #foodph #travelph #canonph

Here’s from Leia’s blog:
More about Moon Fool’s Hostel from Leia’s blog:
The first on our list of places to see is Bohol Bee Farm at Island City Mall because it was the nearest from where we were staying. We did visit the Bohol Bee Farm in Panglao a few days later but only the Buzzz Cafe in Alona beach (which I’ll be posting a blog too).
Anyway, Bohol Bee Farm prides itself as a restaurant that serves organic food. Their products mostly comes from their very own organic farm which also provides jobs and livelihood projects for the Boholanos. Their also famous for their honey (of course) and pesto spreads. Me I personally loved the honeyspread.
Honey Bee Farm at Island Fiesta Mall, Tagbilaran City:
The food and drinks!!!
It’s not hard to find Bohol Bee Farm in Island City Mall. It’s just in the ground floor going right from the main entrance. The Mall itself is not really large so you won’t get lost finding those bees. However, if you’re planning to visit Bohol just for a vacation (I went here for a wedding cinematography workshop), check out Bohol Bee Farm in Panglao Island instead which 30-45 minutes drive. You can even book for a stay there because they do have beautiful rooms with a nice rustic tough to it, they also have a wonderful buffet and their dining area has a great view of the beach plus a store too and a herb garden heaven for organic lovers.
Last month, I attended a wedding cinematography workshop in Tagbiliran City. Good thing 2Go has a scheduled trip from Iligan City to Tagbilaran City once a week that leaves every Tuesday. The boat stops in between (Dipolog City if going to Tagbilaran and Ozamiz City if going back Iligan). The downside is that they only offer the economy or super economy class if you’re leaving from Iligan which is jampacked with people and the area is sandwiched between the ship’s huge funnel (engine exhaust) which makes the area not comforting at all. There are no nearby windows in our bunks and where right in the middle which makes the place kinda hot.
Though you get to upgrade your accommodation once you’re in the ship but we still have to wait for the Dipolog passengers because we’re sort of like in a “chance passenger” situation. If there are vacant bunks in the business class section (or cabin, presidential suite if you’re not on a budget) after leaving Dipolog then that’s the time we could get to take it for the night, but it takes 4hrs i think to get to Dipolog and then another 2hrs to wait for the passengers and cargoes to embark, a total of 6 hours waiting time. We still decided to upgrade to business class section.
We left Iligan around 6pm (delayed), arrived in Dipolog by 10pm then left around 12 midnight.
At Iligan Port and then inside 2GO’s St. Joan of Arc vessel:
We arrived in Tagbilaran around or before 6am and went to stay at JJ’s Seafood Village with Leia. JJ’s is a restaurant with a hotel and a reception area good for weddings, birthdays and seminars. The JJ’s is technically just besides the Tagbilaran Bay though the view of the bay is not exactly great but still refreshing. They also have the fastest internet (in a hotel) so far here in the Philippines that clocks more than 30mbps though quite unstable at times. Their room is not great but okay. They have really good food by the way. At first the price seems a little hefty but it turns out they have big servings than the usual.
This is their hotel:
And this is their Restaurant (right part of the building and Reception area (left part) as well:
and here’s the really good food:
All I can say is that we were satisfied with our stay here in JJ’s. This was actually my 2nd time staying here. My first time was way back 2008 when we had a school field trip and I was a Hotel and Restaurant Management student that time. That was also my first time in Bohol.
Tagbilaran City has so many good and great restos it would probably take a month or so just to try all of them with a risk of gaining so much weight. Yes, we’ve tried a few (which I will be posting soon) but we’re just only scratching the surface of what Bohol has in store for its tourists. Not to mention, they have beautiful tourist spots like the famous Chocolate Hills, Hinagdan Cave, Tarsiers, Old Churches and so on which I never got to visit most of it on this trip (though some I did the first time I was here).
But, we went to Panglao Island which I will be posting really soon.
Yesterday, we went to Initao Midway White Beach Resort just to getaway from the bustling city pollution. It was basically Elai’s (good friend of ours and my fraternity brother) idea the other night and all three of us (me, Leia and Porsche or Porsha as I would like to spell it) empathically said yes. I mean why not? City life is just stressful and Iligan’s traffic and pollution on average despite being a super small city is almost like that of Manila. Porsha also invited Red to come along and brought with him his amazing well seasoned slab of pork meat.
So the day started first in the market to buy some ingredients for the food (for grilling!) then in the kitchen for preparation.
Now, the beach… not exactly the same condition as what I last remembered (I went here twice last 2014) but the beach ambiance is what we all need for the day. Here’s my blogpost about my last year’s visit to Midway.
and here I am in case you’re wondering where I was in all this. From Leia’s camera:
So yes, we had a good afternoon and our bellies we’re filled to the skin. We took a very brief dip in the water but be cautious for the sharp rocks though. Porsh got some cuts on both her feet because she was doing front flips in the shallow part of the beach (waist deep). They also have some banana ride pulled by a jetski for 500-1000 Pesos i think good for 15minutes. The cottage we had cost P600 and despite the green net draped around the cottage, it doesn’t really help with the flies pestering your food. At least it wasn’t a horde of flies though but yes, there were flies none the less. All in all, it was worth the 30-35 minute trip from Iligan City. Going back took us a little over an hour though due to heavy traffic from road repairs. Oh well…
That is all… Peace!
