We reached Bucas Grande Island after ng two-hour na maulan at maalong boat trip. On our way I felt something na hindi ko na talaga kayang pigilan. Sabi nga ni sis Joanne, I did a "fascinating intermission number" at naaliw sila dun, aminin!

After paying the necessary amount nangunguna na kong sumakay ng paddle boat! Excited sa jelly fish.
They were on a lagoon just beside the tourism deck, a very peaceful place. A small paddle boat brought us to the jellyfish's sanctuary. Thank God the rain stopped.

At first I was so afraid to touch them but my guide told me that they're harmless and showed me how to hold them the right way.

I so love them specially the baby ones. They're soooo cute! Did I mention that Im amazed about jelly fishes? They're a mystery to me. Gusto ko silang iuwi but they're gonna die if I take them out of the water.
Me: Pwede ba kaming mag-swimming dito?
Paddler: Hindi po pwede maam.
Me: Bakit naman po?
Paddler: Dati po kasi pinapayagan namen na mag-swimming dito yung mga tourists kaya lang po napansin namen na madaling namamatay yung mga jellyfish. Lalo na yung mga maliliit.
Too bad that I cant swim with them but the thought that something about human might harm them, relieved me though.
My guide slash paddler told me that there's another jelly fish specie, the colorless one, that lives on the same lagoon but unfortunately it didnt showed up. He said that it only appears late in afternoon when the sun was down.
The crystal clear water was so inviting. I was ahead of the others so I took a quick dip on the other side of the lagoon while waiting for the them. Ang daming corals at may mga colorful fish din. And then I saw sea urchins, ok aahon na ko!
