Portal in Siquijor

Last Saturday, the staff of Portal 2007, the Sillimanian Yearbook which I am the Features Editor of, had an outing to Salagdo-ong, in Maria, Siquijor. I've never been to Siquijor before, so I took advantage of the opportunity to go there.

What do I think of Siquijor? Frankly, I didn't know what to expect before going there. I guess I'm that type of person--I don't prejudge. When we got there, I was pleasantly surprised. Siquijor is still unspoiled. Imagine, there are white sand beaches with clear waters right by their port! It was totally the opposite of those in cities like Manila, Cebu, or even Dumaguete! Houses in the entire province are still far apart, and the cities/towns are fairly quiet. But for me, the best thing about the island is that everywhere you look, there's great scenery! In short, I loved Siquijor. I certainly hope I'll be able to go back there again.
