So three years later, I’m here resurrecting my blog from the dead. When I started blogging again in 2013, I told you about my love-hate relationship with blogging. I’ve been blogging since I was 14, I’m just not sure why at some point, I get tired of it. But here I am! With photos, memories and a sun-kissed heart.I visited this island with my gay friends last Summer in May 2015 and I “liked” it. I had the chance to spontaneously visit again just recently, but this time though, I was with a friend who grew up there who was generous enought to show me and my best friend, Barbie, around. He toured us everywhere and brought us to hidden spots that you don’t normally see online. I don’t know how to put this into words better than saying “I love it”! One of my goals before I reach 30 is to have a beach house in Cebu. The tables have been turned. I don’t want a beach house in Cebu anymore. I want a beach resort in the mystique island of Siquijor. Or maybe both?
Arrival. Just a few hundred meters from the Sijuijor port is this picturesque spot.While waiting for our friend to arrive, we stayed at Blue Wave in Dumanjog. Not so far from the port, but we had to ride a tricycle – which is the main mode of public transportation there. We paid 100 pesos for the fare and 50 pesos each as entrance fee to this beautiful beach. Entrance fee is consumable, I cant believe they charge very cheap for this breathtaking view. They had mattresses in cute wooden cottages, an amazing shoreline and excellent customer service. If we didn’t plan to stay at our friend, Jan’s house, we will definitely stay here!I wish I took better photos, really. Barbie and I were too busy beach bumming, creating musical.ly videos, laughing and inhaling this paradise of a place. Few hours later, we went to our friend’s place which was in another municipality called Larena. Their house was on top of a hill and we could the see the beach from there. We had a few good drinks and off we go to their backyard which was an array of small beach resorts.
Here’s a photo of us at a beach just at my friend’s backyard waiting for sunset. After sunset and a great meal and me playing with our friend Jan’s dogs, we drove off to another municipality to enjoy Siquijor’s nightlife on a weekday. Last time I was there, my friends and I didn’t experience any night life mainly because we didnt know where to go. This time though, nothing wild and crazy, but definitely something really chill. We stayed at Siquijor’s boulevard for hours and hours enjoying the view,the sea breeze and the possibility of something supernatural to happen. Haha! You see, Siquijor is known for it’s magic, sorcery, incantations, healing rituals and witchcraft. I actually really wanted to take photos at the boulevard but my friends were too scared because other than it’s already midnight, we were seated near this huge, creepy tree. Cant blame them.I will stop right here, for now. I have been traveling so much lately and since I’m not big on posting photos on facebook or instagram, I remembered I had a blog that needed re-awakening. Cheers to more time for blogging! & Cheers to everyone who has their own love-hate relationship with their long-time hobbies! Will write more and post better photos soon, yes?
