Day Tour Bohol Part 3: Loboc Floating Restaurant, Blood Compact Site

After the buying souvenir items from the Sevilla Souvenir Shop at the Hanging Bridge, we proceeded to the Loboc River Floating Restaurants.

Loboc River Floating Restaurants

There are four restaurants to choose from, each of them has something different to offer. In our case, we chose the first one, the Riverwatch Floating Restaurant. Apart from the fact we thought the menu suits our taste, we also managed to get a substantial discount from them. The typical price of the buffet is 300 pesos and there's an entrance fee of 100 pesos. All in all, without any discount of whatsoever, you will spend 400 pesos for the cruising buffet meal.

As expected, the buffet meal was delicious. There's also a live music performance while you are eating and occasionally, the boat will stop at stations where there's a floating stage at the shore where there are people performing either a native dance and/or a song.

The Riverwatch Floating Resturant has plenty of food selections. During our stay they prepared grilled fish (Tuna), Pancit, Chopsuey (mixed vegetables), squid, fried chicken and many other typical Filipino dishes. They also have sliced fruits such as pineapple and and watermelon.

Python, Ostrich, Flying Lemur in the Mini-zoo

Our next stop after the lunch in Loboc River Floating Resto was the mini-zoo (We skipped the zip-line portion since none of us wants to try it).

The mini-zoo features a huge python, Iguana (chameleon), Ostrich, Flying Lemur and many others. We didn't stay long in the zoo and we left immediately after we took several pictures.

Baclayon Church and the Blood Compact Statue

Our next stop is the old church in the town of Baclayon. Again, we didn't stay there for long mostly due to the hot sunny after-lunch weather. It seems that most of us wants to sleep inside our rented van. So after a few shots of the place, we left for our next stop, the Blood Compact Statue in Tagbilaran City.

The Blood Compact Statue commemorates the treaty by blood (Sandugo) between the spanish conqueror Miguel López de Legazpi and Bohol Chieftain Datu Sikatuna in the year 1565. The sculpture was made by a Bohol native National Artist, Napoleon Abueva.

We took several pictures of the statue and as expected, we took our favorite shot - a jump-shot. :-)

Going Back to Tubigon, then to Cebu


After the Blood Compact Site, we rushed back to Tubigon Port to catch the 4PM MV Starcraft ride.

Before stepping into the fast-craft, I look back at Bohol for the last time and a curious idea came to me - I'm gonna come back again to this place!

  10. The families those adopt these dogs have my full respect. I was reading stories online regarding a family that adopted a pair of dogs, one was blind and the other was his buddy who used to guide him through the ways. The reason why the family adopted both of them was because of the bond these two dogs had with each other.

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad recently needs to have a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. So I made a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, turns out, it depends on many factors such as which part of the body is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast" wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information this technique of adding contrast is know as Gadolinium Contrast Medium. It adds cost to the procedure but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

So, in my father's case, we had a Prostate MRI and I assume it's without contrast since he was never injected with the "contrast" chemicals. We got it in i-Scan Healthcare Inc here in Quezon City. The cost is 13000 Pesos. Please take not that the amount was just for the scan and the result will be read by a separate professional. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e. the reading) and t…

FREE Calls to Your Favorite Fast-food Chain on Globe Phones

In the age of mobile apps and ordering via internet, people are increasingly going from "calling" to "tapping and clicking" their fast food orders. The arrival of Honestbee, Foodpanda and just recently, Grab Food is a testament to how much this trend is growing. The visual effect these apps provide has a huge advantage over voice only "call".



In an apparent attempt to pull back some users in using the hotlines, Jollibee Group teams up with Globe Telecoms to allow free calls on their Globe handset to order from their favorite fastfood. Yes, even without a load, you can make a call to the Hotlines. Here's the promotional poster.

Just dial these numbers to order:
Jollibee - #87000 Mang Inasal - #71111 Chowking - #98888 Greenwich - #55555 Burger King - #22222

SCAM: My First Scam Text This Year; 850000 Pesos from GMA Kapuso Foundation

It's a brand new year for everyone, including local scammers. And despite all the efforts by PLDT and Globe Telecom to curb text message scammers, from time to time, they still creep out and show up in our inboxes. And as hard to believe as the messages of winning some great amounts of money is the fact that there are still people who believe them. I personally know someone and that scam text message triggered events that turn her life upside down. So my point is, we still need to be careful regarding these scam messages. The danger is real!


So without further ado, here's the scam message I received a few days ago. On Sunday, January 7, 2018 at exactly 3:33PM (PH time), I received this message from a certain Atty. Jhon Acosta with phone number 09552962911
