Day Tour Bohol Part 2: Ship House, Man-made Forest and Hanging Bridge

This is the second part of my Bohol Day Tour last August 2011.

Bohol Ship Haus

After the fun at the Chocolate Hills in Carmen, we are bound to visit the Man-made Forest. But along the way, we our driver told us to try the new spot in Bohol, the Ship Haus. As you may have already thought, ship house is a house resembles a ship where sailors work. It was owned by Capt. Gaundencio Dumapias, a native of Bohol who was once a poor boy and later become a successful sailor.

The Ship Haus features the equipment inside the ship, the room of the Captain, Chief Mate, etc. The roof deck of the Ship house resembles the front of the ship where you can "pretend" to see the endless sea in your view.
The entrance fee to the Ship Haus is 30 pesos per head. You can also buy souvenir items inside for considerable prices.

Man-made Forest

The Man-made Forest is a densely planted Mahogany forest located in the border of the towns of Loboc and Bilar. Actaully, the only thing you can do at the Man-made Forest is picture taking (jump shot :-)). There's no entrance fee.

Hanging Bridge in Loboc River

We didn't spend much time at the Man-made Forest. After a few pictures were taken, we decided to go to our last destination for the morning: the Hanging Bridge in Loboc River.

The Hanging Bridge is composed of two foot bridges made of cable wires and bamboo. It hangs across Loboc River at approximately 25 meters above the river water. At the other side of the river lies the Sevilla Souvenir Shop where you can buy cheap souvenirs such as T-Shirt marked with Bohol icons.

Note: Entrance Fee to the Hanging Bridge is 10 Pesos per head.

Here are some pictures:

Trivia: The cheapest souvenirs we bought came from the Sevilla Souvenir Shop.

After buying all the souvenirs we want, we decided to go to one of the most exciting part of the tour: the Loboc River Floating Buffet Restaurant. That along with the activities that followed will be featured on the third and the final part of our Day Tour Bohol series.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1. Call the Bank to Secure Your Account The first and most crucial step you need to do immediately is to contact your bank by phone or personally report it to the branch where you opened the account. This action will ensure that funds will stay put. The bank will lock the account immediately. The big banks have 24/7 hotlines. For BPI, it's 889-100. You have to do this step ASAP after discovering the loss. 2. Go to the Branch to Ask for a Replacement of the Passbook It can mean a simple replacement of the lost passbook, but it can also mean closing the entire account and opening a new one for security purposes. 3.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part 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 known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis. MRI Machine KasugaHuang , CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link So, in my father's case, we had a  Prostate MRI,  and I assume it was 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 note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
