We had planned to visit Miravilla Seafood Restaurant since two years ago as someone recommended that we visit it for the best panga ng tuna. Well, Ali got dizzy and kept throwing up on the way to Chocolate Hills so that plan went poof. [more]

The Cambagat Cave is a 5-minute walk away from the Panglao Island Nature Resort lobby and is located inside the resort itself. You can request any of the resort staff to accompany you there -- from about 8am to 6pm, if I remember correctly. [more]

On this latest trip to Bohol, we finally got to visit the Bohol Bee Farm, which our driver Willy says is "kung saan nakatira ang kamag-anak ni Jollibee." ("This is where the relatives of Jollibee live."
