I was in Bohol last May 14-15, 2010. It was a short visit from Tubigon to Panglao but I had fun and adventure. We were suppose to go to Panglao as a group but my sister and her husband chose to go to Sagbayan Peak instead. So I traveled all by myself going to Panglao. It took 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach Tagbilaran then from Tagbilaran I rode a mini bus going to Panglao Beach, I reached the place within 30 minutes. Though it was quite far, I still enjoy the white sand beach under the heat of the sun. I stayed in the water for 30 minutes then had eaten Hawaiian Pizza and very cold Coke for my lunch. I showered then promptly go back to Tagbilaran. I cannot stay there for long otherwise I be short of budget. The room rates and the food are too expensive. I also want to catch the last trip for Tagbilaran City. When I arrived in the city, I explored Island Mall and I bought Bohol delicacies. After that shopping, I rode a van going back to Tubigon. Then I went to the pier to buy a ticket for Cebu ship travel. Wow I got home in Cebu on the 15th of May at 8:00 pm.
I actually appreciate Bohol because the people there live a very simple life. The place is really comparable to Cebu; peaceful, orderly and not so crowded. But this is what I noticed, of which men should discover themselves, there are a lot of beautiful typical Filipinas there. Most Boholanas that I encountered had sweet accommodating smile, brown skin and long black hair. Despite that experience I still love more my hometown, eka nga there's no place like home.

I have been suffering from sleep paralysis, this is an illness wherein a person's mind is conscious but his/her body could not move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, a person may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. According to literature four out of every 10 people may have sleep paralysis. This common condition is often first noticed in the teen years but in my case I started to experience the condition at the age of ten. But any person of any age can have it. Sleep paralysis may run in families. I usually experienced sleep paralysis everytime I lack sleep, if my sleep schedule changes, and if am so stress with work. Based from my readings, there is nothing to worry about this condition as this had nothing to do with psychiatric or psychological disorder. There is also nothing to panic about this. Prevention is still the key to avoid the illness, which include trying to get enough sleep at least 7-8 hours a day and relieving oneself from too much stress, and for some who sleep on the back trying new sleeping position maybe helpful.
