Boljoon R&R


Far away in the south of Cebu lies Boljoon, one of the oldest towns of Cebu Province. With amazing sites such rocky mountain cliffs, refreshing beaches, and ancient buildings & structures, you wouldn’t get bored exploring this exquisite vista, one of Mother Nature’s natural beauties.

Through my employer’s R&R (Rest & Recreation) program, I got the chance to venture the high waters of one of Boljoon’s famous resorts -- Club Fort Med. It’s awkwardly situated at the side of its main road so people on buses/cars could see you swimming by the beach! It’s not such a big deal though, since the road is highly elevated such that you’re just a small thing when seen from the top. Sometimes though, rude commuters would holler at you, but others would just simply speed by.

All in all, it’s a great resort – fresh water, fresh air. Here’s another flaw though, it has no shoreline, except for a very small one on its right side. Most part of the beach are low diving cliffs -- swimmers should be careful since the water could run very deep and the waves very high especially during high tides.

The resort is actually a fish sanctuary, what with its uncorrupted waters. In fact, there were a lot of fishes joining us and poking at our feet us at the same time while we were swimming :)

Unlike the R&R we had last year in which there were team building activities, we only had “parlor” games (LOL!) and a pseudo-volleyball tournament. I only joined one game, just for the heck of it but hey, I won myself a prize! Guess what? (drumroll) a towel! LOL! What were you expecting? House and lot? Hehehe. But I loved it! I love towels :P

Anyway, we had to leave early. The travel time from Boljoon to the plant (Mandaue) is about three hours. *sigh* So much for “rest and recreation”, eh?
Sun-'baking'
Us. Crowding in the hammock.
Finally! Got the hammock to myself.
Not ready when the pic was taken. Mari is looking the other way! LOL
Time to go home *sigh*
Mari and her fat cheeks.
Mari, her fat cheeks, and her dream house :P

See yah next summer guys!
*muwah!*
