BOHOL TARSIER- WORLD'S SMALLEST PRIMATE


BOHOL TARSIER- WORLD'S SMALLEST PRIMATE

Bohol is home to not just the world’s biggest snake in captivity but also the world’s smallest primate — the tarsier! Yes! The most adorable cute wide eye creature!

The province of Bohol is famous for the Chocolate Hills and the tarsier. Right after breakfast @ SUN Avenue Pension
we headed straight to this place where there were several trees surrounded by fences. It didn’t take long for us to see the numerous tarsiers clinging on the branches.

At the Gate they have this big signage -Remember, NO FLASH and NO TOUCH.  With their big round eyes, flash would definitely blind the tarsier! Please be considerate.They get stressed out when people touch them. Please take note that tarsiers commit suicide by smashing their heads against hard objects when they get stressed out. So please, NO FLASH and NO TOUCH, wag matigas ang ulo, live and let live!

I cried FOUL, when I learned that some tourist uses flash when they take photos. If you happened to visit the Tarsier be it in Bohol or elsewhere in the Philippines please remind your fellow tourist, not to use flash and not to touch the Tarsier. Let's be vigilant in our own little way! Help preserve the TARSIER.

Palawan Pension House


Cheap Pension House in Palawan near the airport.

Whenever I travel, I personally prefer staying in a hostel, inn or pension house rather than staying in a hotel, 'coz I am practically out the whole day exploring places, and all I need is a decent bed and place where I can sleep at night and take a bath in the morning. 


Much that I wanted to stay in an expensive hotel my budget won't be enough to pay for a P10,000/ a night accommodation.


So if you are a practical person like me then read on...


I am practical not a cheapskate I don't compromise my safety and health over a few hundred pesos, I still prefer a bed without bed bugs, so please be very careful in choosing a place to stay, you won't want your vacation be ruined by bed bugs or your safety compromised.

BACOLOD: Angry Christ Church


BACOLOD: Angry Christ Church
Inside the Victorias Milling Company (VMC) compound in Victorias, Negros Occidental, there is a Catholic church unlike any other church in the Philippines, if not in the whole world. Known to negrenses as the St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church.

Sugar baron Miguel Ossorio owner of Victorias Milling Co. (the largest sugar refinery in Asia) built the chapel at the end of World War II to serve the spiritual needs of its employees and their families who are living inside the sugar refinery compound.

His son, Alfonso, painted Christ’s image because he wanted something different. He used commercial paints, which surprisingly lasted, the colors were very much alive until now, despite some natural fading. Strong shades of red, blue, yellow and green extend all the way to the ceiling. It took Alfonso Osorio two years, 1948-1950 to complete this murals.

The VMC chapel became internationally renowned through a Life Magazine article which dubbed it as the "Church of the Angry Christ" because of the mural’s sharp lines and Christ’s depiction as a frowning God

Alfonso Ossorio depicted Jesus Christ (God the Son) with hands laterally-outstretched, being received by God the Father, represented by two giant, red-orange hands.

A descending dove (the Holy Spirit) with multi-colored wings hangs above On the right side you could see the image of Saint Joseph with the Blessed Virgin Mary ( done by local artist Benjamin Valenciano) while at the left side is the image of Saint John the Baptist with Moses. 

Fire details in the mural, indicate God’s passionate love.

The Salesian priests of St. John Bosco oversee the parish while at the same time administer the Don Bosco Technical Institute located inside the VMC compound.

The chapel is
open to those who wish to visit.

To get there from Bacolod City, take a jeepney or bus that can bring you to the Victorias Milling Company. Upon reaching the gate, a tricycle can take you straight to the chapel.

I do not know how much it would cost you, since we hired a jeepney to take us there for P 1,000. We had a side trips to Balay Negrense,Silay and the Church of San Diego De Alcala. Since we are ten (10) in the group our share is P100.00 each not bad eh!
