Back to Cagayan de Oro for White Water Rafting

The instructors and bangkeros are funny and very nice. You can leave your things outside and it will still be safe. One of the manongs said, tourism is the main source of income for most of the people in CDO and their people will of course never break our trust. Well, they really are the City of Golden Friendship.

You should wear long sleeves shirt or rash guard. Wear light clothing but should cover your skin because rafting will take 3-4 hours. Put on sunblock lotion. Wear comfortable sunglasses. Bring water and any food you can put in your pocket (like chocolates).

Good thing my friend brought a waterproof camera so we can also take “selfie” and group photos while the water is calm.

I just downloaded the first video awhile ago. It’s the video of our first big wave. (obstacle, what they call it)

We fell and it was caught on the second video. Everything in the video looks like in slow motion because it felt like I was ejected from the boat and thrown into the water.


We were really exhausted but very satisfied. We had our dinner in Bes, Steamed Lechon manok, it is located in Tiano brother’s street. Juiciest chicken, they have the tastiest home cooked ulam.

(Share ko lang! ) We also met this guy, we asked him why are they not used to in speaking Tagalog yet more fluent in English. He said, sa kanila kasi if you speak tagalog and you’re not from Manila people would think na you are being Manilenian than being a Bisaya or something like that. So English is really their 2nd language. They’re not being just conyo, speaking in tagalog to them is being conyo. So there! Now you know. Haha!

Day 3

Camiguin

I can’t really remember how did we get there but I remember we took a ferry ride according to the photos. Then our tour guide picked us up from Benoni Port.

See, we were really in a ferry boat.

Our first stop, Giant Clams Sanctuary & White Beach.

I told my friend to take this out of our list because it sounds boring. But it turns out to be one of my favorite. We hired our own tour guide / “taga-hila, approximately around P200.00 to hire one. So they will pull you in the sea (no boat) and show you around to see the Huge Clams (they swim like Muro-Ami).  The bed of clams really looks enchanted in real life. There are lots of Nemos , Dorys and we also saw a sea turtle.

It looks familiar! Lol.

You may call Kuya Rex for the Van rental/ Tour in CDO and Bukidnon: (Globe) 09178556983

And Kuya Teddy for Multicab rental/ Tour in Camiguin and Rooms: (Smart)  09392440521

They’re both really nice. Kuya Teddy let me borrow his Globe Wimax so I can work. You can also request Kuya Teddy to cook for breakfast. You may request for anything, but of course you have to pay. Don’t forget to buy Pastel for Pasalubong. I only bought Pastel and the pineapple from Bukidnon. Solve na! To top it all off, super bait talaga ng mga tao and very polite ha. Lahat good vibes! And this is really one of the reason why I want to go back there.
