OPPO F1s: Summer Destination

The Philippines is one of the most traveled country during SUMMER because foreigners love the sun, sand and sea. We all have that in our beautiful country. Filipinos do not appreciate the beauty that is innate in our country that is why I always encourage my friends to visit different tourist places in the Philippines before travelling abroad. We have a lot to offer as a country, we have a great history, a beautiful culture, a virgin and not abused tourist spots, delicious food and it is very affordable to travel within our country.

My favorite Summer Destination is the Province of Bohol. My mother is Boholana and every year we visit Bohol during May, which is considered as a Fiesta Month.

I love the rich culture and old towns in Bohol. Even though some of the beautiful and old Churches were damaged and the people cannot restore it back, I am happy that I was able to visit some when I was younger. Last 2015, I went there with my family. My kids have learned a lot from our vacation because Bohol doesn’t only have natural resources and tourist spots but also man-made ones.

Let me share with you a photo of my son, posing with these bees at Bohol Bee Farm. At first, he was scared but eventually he conquered his fear and was able to hold it for a photo-op. It is easier to teach kids about insects when they are able to interact with it.

Here is a photo of the famous Chocolate Hills. When we were younger, we thought that Chocolate Hills is made of Chocolates and that we can eat it. My kids also think that they can bring it home and eat it. It is a beautiful creation that you can only see in Bohol.

We had lunch at the famous Loboc River Cruise, you only pay for the “Eat All You Can” Lunch and get to ride the boat for free. They will then have a stop over where you can listen to these kids who will sing and dance Boholano Songs for everybody to enjoy.

Of course, we went to the Man Made Forest and had our photos taken. The man made forest is located along the hi-way and most peopl have there photos taken at the center of the hi-way itself but I chose to have my daughter’s photo at the shoulder of the road to avoid mishaps. Though the street isn’t that busy compared to other cities and towns, we never know an accident will just happen anytime.

Then we visited the Shiphaus in Batuan. The Shiphaus was owned by a Ship Captain, it used to be their home but people from different places came to visit and had their photos taken. Eventually, it became a tourist spot and a hotel at the same time. They have rooms for rent, and they sell different tokens (pasalubong) for your family and friends.

Of course, it will not be a Summer Destination if we will not visit the BEACH! Life is a BEACH as we know and Summer will not be Summer without the SUN, the SAND and the SEA.  We just can’t get enough of BOHOL, can’t you see how beautiful it is? Don’t you want to visit it yourself?

I have visited Bohol a million times but I wasn’t able to visit all of its different tourist spots, old Churches, and all of its wonderful beaches. Yes, Bohol has beautiful virgin islands and pristine white beaches to offer, but we couldn’t visit it all at once so we kept on coming back.

As you can see, some of my photos aren’t that beautiful and we seldom have photos of us together. OPPO F1s should be part of my next summer adventure, it is not called the Selfie Expert for nothing, because I know it will surely take beautiful photos of me and my family together because of its 16MP Front Camera. Most phones don’t have a great Front Camera and only OPPO have given it importance.

Penshoppe Swimsuit at 50% off

I have been wishing to own a new swimsuit and just recently, I finally bought a new one. I went to Valencia and check out my favorite apparel store, Penshoppe, and found out they are now selling swimsuits. The last time I check, and that was like 3 years ago, they don’t sell swimsuits because nobody is looking. I found this aqua blue and navy blue pair and I loved it!

I tried it on when I got home and I liked what I see in the mirror. I cannot wait to wear it on the beach or in the pool, maybe one of these days before summer of 2013 ends.

Persian Red Nail Polish

It’s sizzling hot in the Philippines already because SUMMER is finally here but it will not stop me from sporting these “hot” Persian Red nail polish! I know that the weather is already hot and having a red colored nail polish will keep the temperature rising I believe.

Every girl wants to look beautiful everyday and of course being beautiful means we need to maintain not only our personal hygiene presentable but also by applying nail polish to our fingernails and toe nails. There are so many ways to make our nails beautiful today, there are glitters for nails and nail arts everywhere but nothing beats a beautifully curved and polished and well maintained nails.

Summer Hat

Now that summer is fast-approaching we need to be ready for the hot weather. Of course we do not want to make our skin suffer from too much exposure to the sun so we try everything to keep them from harm. One way of keeping our face exposed to the sun is by using summer hats. Summer hats or beach hats are hats which is kind of big compared to normal hats. It protects our face from being directly exposed to the sun. Aside from keeping our face from the sun’s rays we can also chose the summer hats that can be paired with our fashion sense.

Summer Vacation

SUMMER is not just around the corner, it is somewhere near the BEACH, the SAND and under the SUN. I don’t know why if I think of the word “SUMMER”, I see sun-tanned people in my mind who are wearing bikinis and swimming trunks while playing volleyball near the beach.

Moreover, classes has finally ended, it is summer vacation for the kids and yet, the rain is still pouring. Yeah, I am excited to wake every day to check out if the weather is already fiery HOT and if ever Mr. SUN is up early, but sometimes I am disappointed when I go outside because the weather is cold as ICE.

So, I am thinking of a good, ohhh, BEST PLACE to spend the summer vacation with, not in Orlando because it is too far. I am thinking of somewhere near and cost lesser than having a vacation abroad. I cannot spend my summer vacation in the white beaches of Panglao because it is far, I need to ride a ship before I can get there and you see it will not be feasible for my 1 month old daughter. So, perhaps we could go to Samal Island in Davao which is nearer here in Bukidnon or perhaps Dakak.

Anyway, before I go, let me ask you a question, “What comes to your mind if you hear the word SUMMER?”.
