Tagbilaran plans were almost 6 months in the making. I am glad Jan, Joiz, Marco, and Kat were with me on this.

Jan went to my place so that we’d go to the airport together. Since I packed at the last minute, the three arrived probably an hour or three earlier. Well, they’re just excited kids, I tell you. 😛 (Thanks to Marsha, btw, for carrying our heavy bags. Hehe~ Sorry, I just have to mention him. :D)
Departure time was a few minutes earlier than expected and we arrived in Tagbilaran in just an hour. That didn’t make any difference though because our service was late. Let’s say we arrived at 7AM, our service got to the airport at almost 8AM. >_>
Here are the kids during the ride from Tagbilaran to Panglao.
Panglao is another island, still in Bohol, that is connected to Tagbilaran by two bridges. Drive from the airport takes about 30 to 40 minutes.
We had accommodation reservations in Linaw Beach Resort. I didn’t enough time to browse their website to see their rooms and amenities. I’m glad I didn’t because I was in for a surprise. Let’s have a tour around our room:
Looks plain from the outside
From the main door
(That’s Marco, btw.)
To the toilet & bath
I was already impressed
That shower is just WOW — beats the one in our home in all levels.
Queen-sized bed good for three sexay persons XD
Ceiling fan, LCD TV, DVD player, subwoofer, etc.
My bedroom doesn’t even have speakers set up like that T_T
The door is the connection to Joiz and Kat’s room.
MY smoking area
They look like they cost more than they really are. 😛 We already wanted to live there just because of the rooms. Even more so when we checked further the resort.
After taking all that in and resting for a bit, we had our brunch.
The cooks certainly took their time. It probably took them an hour or so to prepare all those. The wait was somehow worth it as the two pizzas were tasty. :9 The rest were just alright.
I forced myself not to do the “pig life” after lunch. With my camera, I went by the swimming pool where the rest were.
Did some walking along the beach too…
I almost fainted then because I didn’t like the feeling of weeds sticking on my feet and getting stuck between my toes. T_T
Some shots before I fell asleep:
I woke up and went back to the room to resume sleep when I felt my feet starting to burn. I woke up in time for dinner.
Wow, that made me realize how much of a pig I am — eat, sleep, and then eat again. >_>;; So the first day was spent being like a pig. Yet, lazying around wasn’t even enough for the second day activity which I shall blog soon.
We finished our first Bohol night with mixed drinks. I had Caipirinha (mixed rum and calamansi) for a change from my Black Russian.
