Bohol Tour - Tarsier Sanctuary

March 15, 2018 Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary, Tarsier Sunctuary Rd, Corella, Bohol, Philippines

It has been my goal to see the Tarsier in Bohol.  Tarsier's are one of my world's smallest primates. I was shocked when I saw the tarsier's in person and how tiny they looked. I did not expect them to be really really small. They have a tiny body with huge eyes!

Of course we went to visit during the day and they were all sleeping as they are nocturnal animals.
The entrance fee to the Tarsier Sanctuary was P60 pesos (or $1.45 CDN). You are supposed to be quiet when you enter the sanctuary to not disturb the sleeping tarsier's but there was a group of older ladies with us and they were very LOUD!
We were all trying to hush them but they were not listening. Poor little tarsier's.
And the saddest part is that they are endangered animals.
You will spend no more than 1 hour here. You basically go around the sanctuary and spot the tarsier's and that's it. 

What I Ate: Laduree, Toronto

March 12, 2018 3401 Dufferin St, North York, ON M6A 2T9, Canada

Laduree's store at Yorkdale Mall opened last December. The line was too long then for me to come to the store. My Mom and I met up at Yorkdale Mall to celebrate my birthday early. When we passed by the store, there was no line so we took advantage of it. 
I love interior of the store. It's a pastel heaven! Everything was cute!
Hard to choose what flavour to get. I had tons of choices!
I got a box of 6 macarons for $27. Love the boxed packaging!
My cute Turquoise box.
I picked 2 pistachios (my Mom ate want already), salted caramel, chocolate, passion fruit, and rose petal. 
You can also dine inside the store. They have a selection of sandwiches, soups, cakes, and of course macarons. And also gourmet tea's and coffee. 

Bohol Tour - Butterfly Sanctuary

February 15, 2018 Poblacion, Bilar Bohol, Philippines, Philippines

Our next stop on our tour was the Butterfly Sanctuary. The entrance fee is 45 PHP per person ($1 CDN) and you are also provided a guide to take you around the sanctuary.
The sanctuary is very beautiful inside. Full of plants, flowers, and of course butterflies!
Our guide told us that butterflies snacks on mangoes. They love it!
I got one butterfly to land on my hand.
Spot the pretty butterfly. It's blending in with the plants.
I was very fascinated with this flower. It's so vibrant! It's called "ginger flower".
At the end of our tour, our guide made us pose in front of preserved butterflies and took this photo of us.

What I Ate: Philippines Part II

February 9, 2018 Bohol, Philippines

Mango smoothie for me on a hot day.
I got obsessed in ordering grilled eggplant with tomatoes and red onions. The only veggie dish I can eat every day.
Beef sinigang. Nothing more comforting than eating this dish on a rainy day with rice.
More BBQ pork with grilled veggies this time. Does that make it more healthy?
This whole fish was delicious! Grilled fish is the best.
My ultimate favourite noodle dish from the Philippines is palabok.
And of course Halo-halo from Chowking. It has a lot of delicious toppings (flan, ice cream, fruits, jackfruit, tapioca, etc). It's the best. Have you tried it?
This is inside the SM Seaside mall food court. I was very hungry so we ordered a lot. We have sinigang again with veggies, and kare-kare (oxtail stew).
Our hotel in Cebu had a great breakfast buffet. This was my last breakfast in Cebu. I had danggit (dried fish) with sausages (longganisa), corned beef, with garlic rice.
