When going to Camiguin, the usual drop-off point is Cagayan De Oro. So we booked ourselves a flight to CDO. It was raining when we arrived at CDO but we didn't let the rain dampen our spirits.
From the port we rode a ferry going to Camiguin and were picked up by a multicab from from the Camiguin port which brought us to Enigmata. Enigmata is basically a treehouse, we stayed at their Swing Garden Backpacker and paid P200/pax for our overnight stay there. After we settled in and ate a few sandwiches made by Mands, we were out of the door and went around Camiguin. We rented that multicab for P1,500 which brought us around the island.
Our first stop was Katibawasan Falls. We paid a minimal fee of P15 to get inside.
The water was freeeeezing! The locals rented out salbabidas for P10, I think.
Second stop was Walkway to the Old Volcano and Via Cruces. We passed by the different stations of the cross while walking up to the top of the volcano.
Sunken Cemetery was our third stop...we rode a small boat going to that cross. The cemetery sank in 1871 eruption of the Old Volcano. If it's low tide, another cross can be seen in the ocean...I think it's a cross in one of the tombstones in the sunken cemetery. It was a bit eery going to that cross. I remember being afraid that I might see skeletons popping under water hehehe.
Yahoo we're here.
We also stopped by the Ruins of Gul-ob church, the ruins is the remnant of the church when the volcano erupted.
Our tabing-ilog shot at the ruins.
After that we also went to Ardent Hot Spring where we had dinner and ate very suspicios looking and tasting viands. But we didn't care! It was our first full meal for the day ahahaha. We don't have pictures there because we were all exhausted, we just wanted to relax and enjoy the warm water of the spring.
The next day after waking up, Joema and I were able to see the other accommodations in Enigmata. Pardon our bagong gising looks heehee.
The next photos were shot at their waiting area before we checked out. There were lots to play with there, board games, sungka, musical instruments like xylophone and guitar.
Over all our Camiguin trip was one of my most memorable travels with the gang. Even if it was only for less than 24 hours, it seemed we had seen and done so much!
*cheesy title harhar but I remember a movie of Jomari Yllana and Gelli de Belen by the same title.

Now here's another version of "Apologize" which is Kris' first song as the judge's choice for him.
Joema bets Kris has a chance of winning AI. The homecoming episode showed a lot of his supporters from Arkansas. And Kris knows how to choose a song. It's gonna be a real exciting finale next week.

I wouldn't want to go through it without any background or experience. Well, I have planned our own wedding but I would think I need more information about the industry. Did you know that there are schools who offer wedding planning courses? One of them is Sheffield School. Sheffield actually began as an interior design school but they have now included wedding and event planning course in their curriculum. They are located in the heart of Manhattan. Oh if only I live in New York like Grace. Their website will show you the topics covered in their wedding and event planning course. I would probably enroll in this course. Sheffield School's training will include "look book" supplements, virtual internship programs and your personal student advisor among other things. I'm itching to request for a free course catalog to know more about this course. Maybe I should start charging my friends for being their bridal consultanti.

Most of the other tourists were Europeans. In our speedboat we were the only Asians. Funny the tourguide was speaking in English telling us about the tour, and then he walked up to us and started talking I think in Thai. Maybe he thought we didn't understand what he said in English. We just smiled at him and shook our heads telling him we do not understand. And then he started talking in another language, and we still don't understand him. He gestured his hands in surrender as if telling us that he's giving up and doesn't know how to communicate with us hahaha.
Our first stop was Pranang cave where we had a swim for a little while.
Nearby this island we were able to snorkel and feed the fish.
We had two cameras during our honeymoon. I borrowed my parents' Olympus camera because I wanted to take underwater pictures. Here is the last picture it took. The camera died on us. Water started filling up the battery slot and it wouldn't turn on anymore. Sigh!
So Joema and I, a little bit disheartened, went back to the speedboat and rested for a while. Before we knew it, all the other tourists were back and we headed to Poda Island where we had our lunch and stayed for a bit to rest.
Kunyari I'm not worried about the camera.
This is the life.
Goodbye poda island.
Our tourguide next brought us to Tup island. It's actually connected by sand dunes to Chicken island, if I remember it correctly. But I was too chicken to walk going there since the tide was a bit high when we were there. So we enjoyed every bit of the sand dunes before heading home.
