Hagonoy Island, Surigao del Sur, Philippines

Hagonoy Island is part of the Britania Group of Islands in San Agustin, Surigao del Sur, Philippines. We got the chance to visit it on July 2016. The weather was permissible as it was a bit cloudy in the morning however the rain did not pour down throughout our trip. In fact, we got a full sunshine when we started sailing! Perfect!

The images were taken with my brother's DJI Phantom 3 drone and my Fujifim XT10. I am so in love with these shots especially the aerial images. The thing about aerial images is that it captures awesome shots and makes you think how small we are in this beautiful world!

This island has a powdery white sand and is surrounded by clear waters. I must admit some people are too irresponsible to leave soda bottles around. I don't get why they don't bring their trash with them when they are surrounded by such an amazing albeit small island! Shout out to those people who posts on social media about their journey towards a beautiful destination and how much they love the place and taking selfies left and right but does not care to bring their shit with them. You guys are such hypocrites. Ooops sorry not sorry!

Look at our happy faces! Heehee~ I remember we were running like kids at recess time towards the island when we docked the boat! It was too beautiful to not jump and run around, pictures here and there, swim and swim even more! I must say despite seeing plastic bottles of soda (which really makes me mad every time I remember it lol), it made me happy to sea shells, fishes and sea urchins! I was very fond of these things back in my childhood~

Of course, we have to grab each others faces when we take group pictures. I lost this time. Just this time. ;p

Yay! One island down, three more to go :)

Life Lately | 4

A few days ago was interesting in terms of companionship! Glad that I am surrounded by these people on a daily basis. I am winning!

We watched Barcelona movie at Vox Cinemas. Yes, we had to wear black just because! The movie was great - it was not just a plain romantic movie and all that cliche but there were also family and personal issues. I can relate as well with how they portrayed the life of overseas Filipino workers. I was not expecting such a great story line so I think it is one of the best romantic Filipino movies to date (at least the ones that I have watched.)

When one of your friends is stressed at work, you all go listen to her rant over a bucket of chicken! That's what we did a few weeks ago. We wanted to play bowling however a highschool kiddo approached me and asked if we want to play billiards. He gave us his ticket to the game! We didn't even ask why he does not want to play anymore!

Spent a humid afternoon with my family at Box Park! Despite the sweat, it was nice to see how they designed the containers for each restaurants and/or stores! There was this craft store that I wanted to visit but I did not because I don't want to spend money on paper again. Hahaha

Yesterday was so spontaneous with these girls again! We had dinner by the pool and swam into the pool without changing clothes. Hahaha good times.

Enchanted River, Surigao del Sur, Philippines

I have been wanting to visit this place back in college but I never really did. Glad to have the chance to see this back in July 2016! Enchanted River is located in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. We arrived during the fish feeding session in the river. No one was allowed to swim or jump into the water except for two people who are actually feeding the fishes. It was such a great sight to see big fishes swimming freely! After an hour, we were allowed to jump in and so we did!!

Ready to jump into the clear waters of Enchanted River!

I tried to go towards the cave but kind of scared that a kraken might appear! Kidding! I wanted to be next to the fishes but however I swim deeper, I just could not seem to be near them. This just means that the water is too clear, you think that the riverbed is just a few hand span deep!

Of course, the most important thing in this travel, group jump shot!

Another one that I crossed off in my bucket list! :D
