I arrived at 6 in the morning, ran home to pack a few last minute things and we were out of the house not too long after. We took Cebu Pacific where 'Every Juan flies' har har Personally, I prefer it over PAL. The planes seem newer and the staff much more fun. Plus they are the only airline that plays dumb games up in the sky.
Lunch was delicious with ube ice cream for desert!! We got a lesson in ube later at dinner where I found out it comes from a root crop that loves growing in Bohol. Something about it being larger. Anywho, we left the resort just in time to catch mass at Baclayon Church in Daui. I don't really understand Tagalog and was quite worried that I REALLY didn't understand any as we sat down for mass and I had no clue what was going on. Turns out, they were speaking in Visaya so none of us understood it. Mass was still enjoyable, especially with the children's choir. We had a tour of the church and the building nearby that was recently restored. They've done a fantastic job and it's looking amazing. There's also a small gift shop inside selling locally made handicrafts. Dinner was also at the church. We were celebrating my little brother's birthday as well as my parent's wedding anniversary and were very fortunate to have the Loboc Children's choir perform. Their singing was so beautiful I had chills!
