dude traveling with my family in the "mystical" island of Siquijor
mom’s 51st birthday so as my treat, a compensation for being a prodigal son hahaha, we went to Dumaguete City to relax and visit some relatives
sadly, I was forced to change our trip itinerary since most of the roads up the mountains were totally destroyed by the typhoon Sendong. bro and sis missed the Negros Oriental’s fascinating falls, too bad. still a blessing, an hour away from the city, is the mystical provincial-island of Siquijor!
the island which became famous, and infamous, for the supposed unique skills and power of most of its residents to perform witchcraft, healing rituals and black magic. such stories add up to the mystic and beauty of Siquijor’s natural wonders
the province is so small that you can tour the whole island in one day. we hired a multicab at the Siquijor port and off we go!
topload, more fun in the Philippines!!! :-)
some of the island’s famous tourist site (travel blogs always attached the word "enchanted" or "mystical" to describe the sites. heck, just for the fun of it hahaha):
enchanted century-old balete
enchanting white sand beaches
enchanted Lazi convent, one of the oldest Catholic convent in SE Asia
mystical Lazi Church
enchanted Capilay Spring of San Juan
and the town's bell tower
too bad, even a day as wonderful as this must end…
back in Dumaguete City, delicious san rival, silvanas and strong brewed coffee yey!
next visit in Siquijor means staying longer, bringing Ani and some spelunking activities
