One of my BANG friends celebrated her birthday at Moalboal, unexpectedly. It was unexpected because going farther than Minglanilla was something not one of us thought of. (By the way, BANG is the group name of my high school barkada. If you'd ask how we got the name, honestly, we really don't know. Haha!)

What happened was that Ekang just texted everyone in the group that we will be having a beach / pool birthday party for Emz. No exact place, but not knowing that majority was thinking it would be in Villa Teresita in Talisay (again..). When we were all in the meeting place, it has been decided that we go to that resort. But good thing there's someone who insisted. Villa Teresita is okay, but it would be better if we go to other place because we aren't highschoolers anymore. So, I suggested Lambug beach at Badian. But then they said it's too far. So I said, how about Moalboal? They didn't know where it's located so they agreed. (To think that Moalboal is just one town before Badian.. but at least it's nearer. Hehe).

So we hired a PUJ which charged us P200 per head, back and forth. The ride took us almost 3 hours. Almost everyone was not in the mood because of the exhaustion. We stayed at the resort which was two resorts before Basdaku resort. Entrance fee was P10.00. And the cottage was P300.00.

The fresh air and the sound of the waves approaching the shoreline relaxed everyone. And the heat of the sun didn't stop us from swimming :)

The clouds =)

I'm all blaaaack.

Snorkelling at Moalboal Marine Sanctuary.

We had snorkelling at Moalboal Marine Sanctuary for just P50/head, with free materials. The banca driver was so kind to have one of us free. So we were 11 for P500.

The view down the water was so amazing. I have never seen any before in my entire life. The creatures and the corals down there were perfect. I know I'm easy to please. Clouds can easily make my day. But those creatures were too amazing to make me thrilled even until now. Before, I never had an idea that they do exist, especially when dynamite fishing, fishkills, and water pollution were what we mostly heard in news.

The sun was about to set when we finally said goodbye to our newly found friends :)

Ekang.. I just love this shot.

After swimming, there is a store nearby which sells clean water for P5.00/pail..

Thank you for taking your time to read. When you visit Moalboal, please don't forget to visit their Marine Sanctuary. You won't regret it.. Promise :) And send my regards to my little friends..

Badian is a municipality located at the south of Cebu, next to Moalboal. It is roughly a 3-hour drive from the city. To get to Badian, you can either ride a Ceres bus from South Bus Terminal, or Librando bus from the Librando terminal, just across SBT.

The plan was to go to Kawasan falls and then go to Lambug beach. So, as soon as you arrive in Badian, you directly head to Bgy. Matutinao. Just beside their parish church, you'll see the sign saying "To Kawasan Falls". There are local "tour guides" who will approach you. You'll have to leave your cars / motorcycles there because they are not allowed inside the trail.

Actually, we thought we didn't need to have a tour guide. I have read all over the net all needed directions on how to get there. But the guide insisted. According to him, since it was our first time, we might get lost. So, it left us no choice but to agree.

The walk to the falls will take you about 30 minutes. Exhausting as it may seem, but the view and the river along the trail will compensate the distance. Some meters away, you'll see a souvenir shop wherein you'll pay the entrance fee which is P10.00. If you're a first-timer, you'll definitely think that once you're in the entrance, the falls will be just nearby. But no. You'll have to walk, and walk, and walk some more.

After a thousand walks, you'll be amazed by the sight of the first falls. It's like your exhaustion will instantly vanish. The guide advised us to stay in the 2nd falls because it is less crowded and the view is nicer.

The way up to the 2nd falls is very steep and slippery. That's why one needs to be extra careful. On the 2nd falls, there are many cottages and rooms available. We rented the P800.00 room and we gave P100.00 to the guide.The room was very clean, and had a fan on it. If you want a "luxurious" lodging, it can accommodate a maximum of 5 persons. But if you're with your barkada or family and you're in a tight budget, 10 persons can still occupy it. No extra fees, except if you'll get an additional foam for P100.00 each. Just outside the room is the CR and the shower room. Very clean and well-maintained.

Porkchop and Noodles for breakfast

Lifejackets are available for rent at P50/day.

After taking a splurge at the cold waters of Kawasan falls, we decided to have lunch at the market and check out Lambug beach. The way back to the main road was still so far. Haha. Silly of me to think that the trail will seem shorter since we've walked there before. This time, we were able to take pictures along the way.

The view from the first falls.
There's a bridge along the way. I dunno the purpose for its construction. For picture-taking, maybe? Lol.

One of the many "little" falls.
A wooden bridge.
A leaf-shaped concrete bench for tired travelers.
At the market, it was my first time to taste "bas-oy" and it was very yummy :)

Lambug beach is a free public white sand beach. There are cottages available. The sun was shining at its fullest when we went there, so we stayed for only a while.

The long stretch of white sand and the clear blue waters of Lambug beach.

After checking on the place, we went back to the falls, which meant long walks again. We just jokingly said to each other, "Dah, laagan man!". Hehe.

Tipid Breakfast for the next day.

2nd Day: Lambug Beach

The white sands, blue waters and puffy clouds. Great!

The water's so tempting.. But, oopps.. Be careful. You don't want to have jellyfish stings, just like mine.

Our pretty little tent.  T'was very helpful. It was so hot but then the rain poured. We had no worries because of this tent. But those couple who had their "picnic" nearby had to put their belongings in a plastic bag to avoid getting wet.
On our way out, we saw "Terra Manna Camping and Resort". It's a new resort, I guess.

We passed by the town market before going home, just to eat "bas-oy". Hehe. I know I can't eat it again here in the city.

The experience was so tiring, but well-worth it. If you're going to ask me if I'll visit Badian again, ofcourse, Yes! Definitely.

P.S. While on Fb, I saw Terra Manna's fanpage and I found out they had a photo liking contest, and the prize will be a free trip to their resort for 1 night and 2 days, banca cruise, and a trip to Kawasan. Wow! I, without second thoughts, emailed them this pic.

One of our visits in Mantayupan falls.

I know I can't win the 1st or 2nd prize. Their votes are too high. I'm just after the 3rd prize. Currently, I rank third, and hopefully, I'll stay there until the Nov. 8. With this, I can go back to Badian and visit Terra Manna.

Last August, I had the chance to visit Pinamungajan. My bf have relatives living there and since it was their fiesta celebration, they were going there and he asked me to come over. Why not! It would be great since it would be my first time to go there and to pass by Aloguinsan.

Days before, I googled Pinamungajan's details and what to expect there. I found out that the town has plenty attractions, from the seas, falls, dolphin-watching to mountain-climbing, and many more. But I know we can't go there because we will be there for only a short time. Maybe some other days, we can.

Pinamungajan is a municipality of Cebu located in the southwest. At 5:30am, we took the Barili - Aloguinsan - Pinamungajan route. The overlooking view at Aloguinsan, plus the sunrise was so amazing. Too bad I hadn't had the chance to take pics since we were riding the motorcycle and my cam was in my bag.

The road was not so favorable. We arrived at Bgy. Lamac at almost 7am. We took a rest, ate and then finally decided to go to the beach. Huhu. I forgot the name of the resort. Actually, there were many to choose from. The resorts were just lined up along the road.

There were no other beachgoers so we had the resort to our self. The cottage cost P150.00. The sea was very calm and clear. Just when I was about to take a bath, I remembered I just had my hair treated :( So together with my bf's sister, who wasn't allowed to take a bath in the sea for some reasons, we enjoyed the place by running around and attempting jumpshots.

After two hours, we decided to head back.

 There are so many places there that I wanted to see but wasn't able because of lack of time. But I promised my self that someday, I can do that. I know I can :)
