   Last June 11, 2004, Wilson & I together with our badminton friends, went to Hundred Islands in Alaminos, Pangasinan. We woke up around two o'clock in the morning and by  three o' clock, we are on our way to north expressway to meet with the rest of the group. We met with them at the gasoline station and had our snack there. We left around four in the morning and started our four hour non-stop ride towards Alaminos. At around eight, we finally arrived at our destination. We first went to the tourist information and it turned out that negotiating directly with the hotel/ resort would be cheaper! Maxine resort, where we stayed overnight, have their own boat and would offer it at a cheaper rate than the ones near the tourist information center. We had fun looking at the different shapes of the island which have names like Turtle island, Cathedral, Governor island & Devil's island among others. We stopped for snorkeling and seafood fiesta lunch in Quezon island and then boat- transfered to Children's Island. We came back to the resort around five o' clock. We spent the rest of the night,during dinner time, singing our heart's out! We went to Bolinao- an hour away from Alaminos, after lunch the next day. We visited the church, the cape of Bolinao (light house), UP Marine Research Institute and upon reaching Treasures resort, we didn't waste our time and swam it's beach. We stayed there for another night. We had our breakfast by the beach. We snorkel until around ten in the morning and started packing after that. Then we travelled back after lunch to Manila. Would you believe, in three days, we have swam in Lingayen Gulf and the China Sea!

Hundred Islands
   We dock in Quezon Island first and then children's Island. Both island offered beautiful fishes but in Quezon Island, we saw many giant clams situated closely to each other. It's a bit rocky and it is low tide when we went so we just snorkel around and found schools of fish swimming near us. What a sight!

Bolinao Beach
   We went non- traditional in Bolinao, we opted for the non- commercialized beach resort situated far away from the resorts near town proper. And we have done the right thing, everything was spectacular. We watched the sunset unobstrusively. One can find fishes once you have literally put your feet in the water. And we have the beach to ourselves!
