Panglao's Yellow and Purple Spots

Hello, Room 1403 - my homebase for the next two nights. It was a well-deserved vacation for all of us. With my trusty purple backpack, a yellow sun hat, a snorkel, a camera and sunblock, I was all set for paradise! I didn't see a paperclip this time around but I did encounter some interesting yellow and purple spots in the three days we spent on Panglao Island. Check out these photos...

Purple, giant and alien-like jellyfish floating...
...or sunbathing on the sand... ...or just hanging out! They were so fascinating that I couldn't help but take photos from all angles... and zoomed in for an up-close-and-personal look! I loved the ube soup they served for dinner one night... yum! Of course I loved seeing yellow and purple together: along the walkways... ... and at the resort's man-made islet.

I guess I will forever see purple and yellow in a different light; these two colors will always stand out, no matter where I go. Don't get me wrong though... Panglao was in full color! Check out my other photos (in other colors) HERE - including some great videos of dolphins!

Panglao will forever be a favorite destination... with or without paperclips.

Wow, Nikki, my mom just came from a week-long vacation at Panglao, and super exotic nga daw. You can't take anything daw but pictures; the PURPLE jellyfish are...how do I say that, YUMMY to the eyes! (And what photographer eyes you have!) Hehe. Para silang 'yung nabibiling jelly candies. Dapat makapasyal din ako diyan. Huummm...I can imagine some stories brewing from you from those images...:-)

Yummy is a good word for the purple blob of a jellyfish! Yes, you should visit Panglao. Every Filipino should go to Bohol. And yes, some stories are brewing... Abangan!
