It already became a habit of mine to plan my weekends with activities that usually require long drive, picturesque views, unlimited snacks, fun lot and loads of laughter. My friends, both existential and non-existential, know me as an outdoorsy type of person who loves to be out and about.
Dumaguete City is the capital of the province of Negros Oriental and is popular to foreign tourists because of easy access from Cebu City through a ferry ride. I don’t know if it’s just me but I think there’s really nothing much to see in the town proper of Dumaguete aside from the famous Silliman University. I checked some itineraries before and I saw that Apo Island and Manjuyod Sandbar are the primary reasons why travelers and tourists visit this province.
Had I only known that there are ‘Aswang’ and ‘Mambabarang’ tales in Siquijor, then I would’ve probably did not even consider pushing through this trip especially that I went solo. But thank goodness I had no idea then about these crazy stories because I tell you, Siquijor has so much in store for travelers who love picturesque views of nature and outdoor activities. So happy that I did not miss any of these because of some popular myths and legends about this island.
