Bantayan Island Escapade

October 14 to 17 was a success. Some backed out, some made it but in the end it was all worth it.

Donna, Cathy, Erik, Tin and I were the second batch to arrive in Cebu City on Friday. We met up with Mandark who is picking up Donna. we thought he had a car but he didn’t which is funny because we were looking for his car and waiting for it to arrive anytime soon.

We checked in at Sugbutel. It was a god thing that all of us in the room were accommodated. We paid for 300 pesos for each bed space. We went to SM to have our diner at the food court and headed straight to the Outpost.

The Outpost is an old house which is turned into a bar and boy! the rock and roll scene there is very much alive and kicking. It was a good thing we were with Mandark or else we would have trouble in looking for a spot to sit on.

The next day we headed to the North Terminal where we met up with Timi and Rogeric. We hired a van and paid for the extra seats as it is usually an 18 seated and since there is only 12 of us, we paid for the extra.

After a couple of hours or so, we arrived at Hagnaya Port where we took a ferry going to Bantayan Island. The ferry ride tok about an hour. As usual swarms of agents flocked at us when we arrived at the Sta. Fe Port. Harren had a contact thus we ended up staying at Yoonek Beach Resort.

We went out to have our lunch at a restaurant styled carinderia in Bantayan Business area. After that we went to the Kota Beach with the 1 million structure on the beach. They have an old fortress with a garden inside. On the way to Kota beach, we passed by a lot of poultry houses. The smell was STRONG!

We then headed to Another beach resort with a cave. I am not so good with names but this resort is more like a nature park slash resort. We bathe at the cave and explored the rest of the resort. They have monkeys, eagles, crabs, snakes and the like.

After that we did our marketing, had our dinner which is basically a pizza party.Since there are 12 of us, we paired up and bought one pizza per pair. It was fun exchanging pizzas.

We wanted to have a bonfire but the rain hindered us from doing so. Instead, sews tied for Arthur’s birthday and danced like crazy at the beach.

The next day, we went to Virgin Island. It was a really cool resort with a family or so looking after it.They have their own version of Up’s Russell. A really fat little boy that caught our attention. The island is nice, they have hammocks, Bermuda grasses and everything else that one would need to relax. They even have tripods out of tree branches.

After leaving Virgin Island, we snorkeled. All of them left the boat, I swam with them as well though my one hand is holding on for dear life at one of the poles of the pump boat. We also went to another island whose name I don’t even remember. We explored there, took photos and It is in that place where I started my sea glass collection.

The next day we left Yoonek at around 10 am. We arrived in Cebu at around 3 pm. I went back at Sugbutel to take my ID. My ID is okay but Cathy’s shoes isn’t. It was missing and could not be found by the people there.

After Sugbutel, we headed straight to Mactan Airport and waited for our flight back to Iloilo.

A fun, fun weekend!

Last Sumer, me and my fitness booked a Cebu to Iloilo flight using Cebu Pacific’s seatsale. There were 15 of us so we had to book by batches. The first batch will have their flight in the morning. the second batch for an afternoon flight and the third batch will be for the last flight.

This was okay as our leaving Cebu flight are all the same. A month after the booking, they said that the flights of the last two batches were moved. Last week, another email is sent about the moved flight being moved again

The moment I check the site, the schedule is still pretty much the same. I asked the them to give me an updated IT but still no response as of now. Our flight will be on Friday next week. Ahhh, this is to confusing. I do hope they reply in time.
