Day 3: Honda Bay

Third day is beach day! Yes at last! Makakapag-beach na kami. Di pwedeng walang beach sa list namin! We woke up early, had breakfast and our sundo arrived. By this time, solo namin ang van. Yay! Perfect talaga!

Same tour guide but different driver this time. We stopped muna to rent snorkel gear and shoes, 150 and 200, respectively and to pick up our packed lunch. You can also buy waterproof case for your digicam if you do not have underwater camera but since RJ bought his, we did not need to buy. 

FYI din, make sure to rent dun sa preferred snorkeling rental place ng tour guide niyo because the gear you will rent is definitely clean and sanitized. Unlike at the port, the price is 100 but you are not sure if it is really sanitized. Iba ng sigurado! :)

Going back, travel time to Honday Bay port from the city is like 20 mins. From the port, we waited our boatman (captain as Ate Tourguide named him) and after 10 mins, we were off to Pandan Island -- first island.

Since it was low tide, Ate preferred to go first in Pandan Island. Since may kasabay kaming students from La Salle, we went first and also sasayad daw ang boat namin sa Pambato Reef. Ate and Kuya's assistant cooked our lunch and we went snorkelling! Well, honestly, nahirapan akong magsnorkelling in this island coz 1). Ang lakas ng alon 2). Ang daming tao. May sumisipa sayo somewhere and 3). Nagaadjust pa ang breathing rhythm ko sa snorkelling gear ko. Ang hirap kaya huminga!

We also took pictures using starfish, buko and shells. I won't be able to post the pictures cos we used RJ's cam so maybe later when I gathered it all up. We were so amazed with Kuya (Sorry i forgot the name) kasi sumisisid siya just to take pictures of coral reefs. Even RJ and Rey tried to sisid. Okay sila na marunong magswim! haha. After an hour, Yella and I went back to our cottage. We were so hungry so we eat first. Our lunch was: shrimps, inihaw na liempo and isda, kamatis, itlog na maalat, mangga and others. Ang saya lang kase wala kaming kaagaw sa food. #gluttony at #hungergames lang ang peg namin. Then 3 boys joined to eat lunch na rin.

Before going to Pambato Reef, we explored the island then took pictures.

Second stop: Pambato Reef. This time, i enjoyed snorkelling! As in! Dahil konti lang ang tao na nakasabay namin at hindi maalon, we were able to go explore the reefs and I was so in awe when I saw big clams. Haha. Para kong bata, perstaym ko kase makita eh. Of course, more coral reefs more fun ang makakita nun. After an hour or so, gora naman kami sa Luli Island.

Last Stop: Luli Island, Why Luli? Because its "lulubog-lilitaw" ang ganap ng island na to. Kuya leashed his camera trick skills. Using walis tambo, we took  jumpshots on it. Basta more jump shots, more fun dito. Matutuwa ka! Again, snorkelling galore pa rin ang ganap dito.

Witch na naka superman position? Lol

Here are some pictures that RJ and Ray enjoyed the diving board. At di ko inexpect na itatry ko cos I have fear of heights. Well, actually, the fact na malalim yung tatalunan ko, dun ako naafraid! Maybe it took me 10 mins before I could actually jump and dive. I did a lot of cursing and even called my Mom. Haha! Wapakels sa ibang tao! I did it twice. I feel glad to myself because I was able to conquer my fear! Yay! Sa uulitin! Char!

Ray first attempt

Umulit pa aber!

Comedy to! Promise! Haha!
RJ was there just incase malunod ako But I didn't.

Time have passed, we went back to our hotel. That's our end of our tour. 3 days tour. Tiring but satisfied with the happenings and moments you spent with friends! Another memories that I will treasure and keep. :)
Ate and Kuya's Assistant

With Kuya
We dined at SkyRocket and we enjoyed our last night in Puerto Princesa. Since we love to sing, we went to a videoke bar and sing our heart  out loud! Kahit nananakit na ang mga katawan, go pa rin. 

Next day, our shopping and pahinga day. 

Au revoir! :)
