Morion's PhotoTravel Diary:Philippine Ports’ familiar scene (Tagbilaran Port of Bohol)


Sa gilid ng barko may namamangka
May dalang lata, kibat ang bata-
Kahit walang praktis si Lola
Sisid paghagis ng Barya!

Turista’y tuwang-tuwa-
Naghagis ng ikalawa...
Nakadalawampung piso si Lola!
Panglaman sa sikmura…

Hala! Sa likod may kakompetensya…
Isang buong pamilya!
Pinaghandaan ang galing ni Lola!
Nagsama din ng bata...

Due to personal reasons morion decided not to post the remaining part of the poem.
"This is common yet complicated Social Issue."

Travel Diaries| Beauty and Mystic- Siquijor!

June 02, 2009, NGO Works + Travel|  We left Dumaguete Port around 10:00 am (fast craft) bound to the Mystical Province of  Siquijor. We arrived in Siquijor Port around 11:30 am after more than  an hour of "bumpy"" sea-travel. We hired a tricycle locally called as "Pedicab" and looked for affordable hostel. 

Morion's PhotoGallery 101| Butanding of Oslob, Cebu

FEATURED Photograph|
Photo shows a weak "Butanding" (endangered large type of whale) found along the coastal area of Oslob, Cebu, immediately died after  hours of rescue.
Sightings of  (group of) melon-headed dolphins and whale sharks are common in  Oslob and other neighboring towns. South Cebu's clear and blue sea serves as playing ground and suitable habitat of these endangered  species.

PhotoGallery | Shrine of Sanduguan in Bohol Province

Sanduguan Shrine is a commemorative site of the Sanduguan (a blood compact) between Datu Sikatuna -the chieftain of Bohol,  and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi -Spanish conquistador on March 16, 1565.  Symbol of alliance and friendship, the two leaders made a cut in their arms and mixed drops of their blood with wine then drank it.
Sandugo (Visayan) or Isang Dugo (Tagalog) means "One Blood".
The Shrine is composed of statues made from brass. The scene defects Sikatuna seated at the left side of the picture raising a cup as if in a toast. Legazpi is in the middle with three of his men beside him, including a priest.
