Ilocandia Tour: Baluarte ni Chavit Singson

We had no time to waste so we headed to the "Baluarte in Chavit" in Vigan City right after our tour to the Luna Shrine

This is the Safari Gallery inside Baluarte. It's pretty amazing. One of the best shots I took.

So here's what'll greet you the moment you enter the place. It's like a wide safari.

Further up, you'll find real, live animals...

This tiger over here looks a little cute from afar but just thinking about how it could cut your hand in a snap, makes me wanna have second thoughts.

These wax figures almost seem real and scary...

Looks like Mr. Singson helped in hunting these beasts down

And for our next stop: the Bantay Watch Tower.

The Ultimate 'Croc' Adventure

For some reasons, I don't know why I totally forgot about talking about my adventure in the Crocodile Farm when I was in Puerto Prinsesa with friends.

Perhaps it was because the supposedly cute yet nasty little thing pooped on me. Well, not really. We're talking 3-5ml of the total poop a little croc could make. It did stain my yellow shirt but thank goodness for agility, I was able to anticipate its sh*tting on me. Oh well, here goes...

At the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, I saw this huge skeleton of a crocodile that was believed to be the largest at its time. The croc skin you see mounted on the wall was its skin. After it died years back, they scraped it off from its body and decided to display it for viewing to the public.

There was a tour of the entire conservation center and the guide patiently waited for each one of us to finish before moving to the next attraction as some baby crocs might just be snapping at a tourist's arm before he even notices it.

So these where the cute 'babies' in the tanks. They look like they're sleeping but the guide told us to be extra carefully as they might just snap. They stay in this hatchery until they're big enough to be transferred to the ponds with the other big crocs.

When we visited, there weren't much we saw in their mini-zoo. It seemed like it's been a long time since they last updated the place so all you'll be seeing are pics of me with "the" crocs. Haha.

And this was the nasty little thing that pooped on me. While in this position, I felt its body moving. I could feel this bolus-like structure moving from its stomach to its you know. And then it happened.

I guess I'd like to visit the place again. But I hope that when I do, I'd see some more animals I didn't get the chance to see while I was there in Palawan. 

Til my next adventure! See yah!

Pescador-ing by the Sea

When we woke up the following day after the Canyoneering thing, our bodies were all sore. Seemed like we couldn't move our legs! But! That didn't stop us from getting another quickie breakfast and heading off to the beautiful island of Pescador! 

The first thing to do was to look for the lovely dolphins under the sea. We made noise by hitting the boat with whatever hard object we had in our hands and waited until they surfaced. Luckily, we found lots of them! And they weren't irritated by the noise we made. I wish I had food to feed them. They were just so lovely!

 Then we went to Pescador Island, swam for a while and went in the middle of the sea to look for the Pawikan (Sea Turtle). Sorry, I don't have photos to show you but we swam with it and the experience was just soooo nice.

And here's a photo of us just outside the nice little house we stayed at in Moalboal.

And here's our last stop, swimming with the Sardines.
