The Bohol Vacation Day 1

Finality!!! ito na sila!!!

We had a 4 days, 3 nights vacation in Bohol complete with a full itinerary.

There's nothing planned for the 1st day so we basically just "rested" and "slept" most of the day... (hihihihi)

We stayed at the Bohol Bee Farm which is a REALLY unique and amazing place.

It's in the Dauis side of Panglao Island. And it's like in the middle of nowhere (not sure about this, but really feels like it). When we got there, the person in charge immediately hit us with the bad news: the Barn Room we booked is not available coz they are currently having some renovations.... the upside is we were upgraded to the Banana Room! wee! (isn't it funny that a gay couple should be staying in a cottage called "The Banana"? wala lang hihihi)

GRABE!!! ang ganda ng pinagstayan namin, it's like a cottage/bahay kubo which has that countryside feel but has been tweaked to make it look modern and more welcoming and warm. check out the pics!

Mejo "nagkatamaran" kami so we just stayed indoors instead of the plan to have a tour of the Farm (yes, may tour ang farm!!!).

The farm has 2 restaurants: The Cave (or pool-side) and the Cliff. Since it's a nice sunny day, we decided to check out the cliff... coming from the receiving area, it's a way down towards, well, the cliff going through some foliage (dramatic siya, gusto kong sumigaw ng "nakita ko na ang ada!")

Aaaaaand VAVOOM a spectacular view of the blue BLUE ocean and the endless sky. There's the cool breeze and the sound of water splashing on rocks while you eat... GRABE paradise!

And the FOOD! Grabe the FOOD. Bee Farm's website said all their food is organic and natural so dun pa lang benta na. When we checked the menu, parang 200 per meal! Na parang mahal na for us kse ideally mas mura sa probinsya and it's not as if we're staying in a starred hotel... PERO nang dumating ang food, ay te, hindi lang siya masarap, naguumapaw pa siya. Napakasarap ng honey-cured chicken nila! as in!

After lunch, bumaba kami sa cliffside and behold! may bleached wooden lounge/dock sa cliff-side! susyal. parang ang sarap manood ng sunset dun....

Bumalik lang kme sa Banana Room for "siesta". Pero later on in life, naintriga kame sa indoor pool/resto so may I boardshorts rampa kame. In fairness maganda ang concept nila ng Cave resto.... Like most of the stuff in the farm, it's very warm and whimsical. ang cute pati ng pool na 2 levels pa, ha! parang masarap lumangoy langoy dun sa tanghali habang nainom ng peanut butter-mango shake nila. haaay...

Dahil matakaw kme, nagdinner pa din kme kahit bondat na nung lunch. Vegetarian lasagna at salad, share kme....

At sa katakawan natapos ang unang araw...

Day 2 exciting na! Countryside tour!!!
