SEAFDEC, Guimaras Island

Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center  (SEAFDEC)

After watching the movie YES OR NO 2  (Les movie) I’ve been addicted to Fisheries and Agriculture.  (Something Random)   —–  Anyway..  Hahahahaha..

Let’s move on..  On June 1, 2013 – My theater folks and I went to Guimaras for our “Year-end-celebration-vacation”
We were supposed to stay at Raymen Beach Resort but decided to stay on the other resort (Alubihod Cove) which was just right next to Raymen’s.  (I’ll try to make another separate post on both Raymen and Alubihod Cove)

This was my 2nd time in Guimaras with the USALTees (Theater Company). So we decided to go island hopping and visit the ones that we haven’t seen/been to.

After countless visits on the same island/caves every time I go Island Hopping.. This was the first time I’ve been to the SEAFDEC.. a 20 minute “PAMBOAT” ride from Alubihod beach. Since I was super thrilled and excited to roam around the area.. I took a lot of photos and forgot to take a good look at those big groupers (Lapu-Lapu) 😦

– If you know Jennifer Lawrence the girl who portrayed Katniss Everdeen in the movie The Hunger Games. During her interview with Ellen Degeneres she said that she wasn’t afraid of sharks but was afraid of a Grouper that was as big as a Volkswagen. – :O  (Here’s the link to that ep..)

Villa Igang Beach Resort, Guimaras Island

The day after the Flying of the 15k lanterns, I went to the Island of Guimaras again.  (May 25, 2013)

This is actually my 2nd time coming to Villa Igang and actually slept here for the night.
Villa Igang is located at Poblacion, Nueva Valencia, Guimaras.
After arriving at the port in Guimaras
– You can either rent a “multi-cab” if you come with a group.
– You can either rent a “tricycle” if you come in 3’s or 5’s and with little luggage.
– or ride a jeep if you’re saving money (Haha) 😀

But I wouldn’t really recommend this place to Foreigners, Filipinos or  those who are “allergic” to dirty bathrooms, like me, and to those who expects 5 star accommodations.  (ex. Hot showers, Fresh Towels, Free Toiletries, Aired Pillows etc..)

But putting those negative things aside, For those adventurous people who just wants to visit or wants to stay for the night despite those unclean bathrooms, Haha. There are, (I guess) a lot of places to go to and a lot of things that you could do.

The first thing you’ll see when you arrive in the resort is the way to the butterfly garden which also leads you to the cottages/rooms, if you don’t want to pass through the garden, it’s fine you could just take the other way.. 😀

They also have a place if you wanna go cliff diving, our room was just close to the cliff. I think there were about 3-4 rooms available near the cliff diving place.. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to jump since I was afraid of heights. Hahaha.
But my friend did, and he actually jumped right after we had placed our bags in the room. Hahaha.

There’s also this Mangrove route which is the best part of Villa Igang for me. Well, next to the Cliff diving part.
Gave me chills when we were passing through those bamboo-wood-made-bridges..

They also have swimming pools. A place for Kayaking and I think you could also rent a Jet ski? (Not sure)

If you wanna go Island Hopping I think that it would be better If you go to the other beach resort (Raymen Beach Resort) –> It’s just near Villa Igang so you could go early in the morning or whatever time you want to go Island hopping.. 😀

I hope I’ve helped you (If ever you were looking for a review on Villa Igang)
Though, It’s not the usual “COMPLETE REVIEW” (Since I suck at that, My apologies) 😀
 – if you do have some comments/reviews about Villa Igang, Please don’t hesitate to type in your comment/review. 😀

Here are my photos during my stay in Villa Igang. Most photos are taken near the cliff and on the cliff..

Flew more than 15K Lanterns for Guinness World Record!

“Inaugural Light of Peace Event in the Philippines: World Peace through Inner Peace”

On ze 24th of May, I went to the University of the Philippine Visayas campus in Miagao City.

Since this was just my 2nd time flying a lantern, I have never seen lanterns this many “lit and set free” at the same time. Well, Talk about Mind F*ck (Excuse me) 😀
(For more details about the Event: ( Inquirer Visayas , World Record Academy )

Anywhoo, I brought Enrique (canon 10d) along w/ me, but those  “ERROR 99”  just won’t stop plus the fact that the mirror inside keeps on getting stuck and closing.  I even brought my film cameras which I had later realized that the event would start at around 6PM it would be fine if I had those high ISO rolls with me..
All I had were ze 200’s and one B&W 400..  This was such a huge BUMMER..

So in the end I borrowed my friend’s (Kat) dslr  and volunteered to take their pictures.. Thanks KAT! 😀
I have taken too many blurry pictures, too many of my friends’ pictures..  and I have even reached the point of forgetting the feeling of being there.. 😦
But the fact that I was there and being one of the “15thousand” who helped break the record was enough. (Hihihi)

Camera Used: (Canon EOS Rebel T1i/Canon500D)

I hope you enjoy a few of my photos on that day.. 🙂
