Dinner in Bohol

{To continue with the vacation foods...}

06 November 2008 - K and I took the 9:30PM bus ride from Vigan the night before and we arrived in Manila 6:30AM. Because our luggage were heavy and big, we decided to hail a taxi from the bus terminal going straight to the airport. Our flight to Tagbilaran, Bohol was at 12NN, but as early as 7:30AM, we've already checked-in our luggage and we just stayed at the lobby where we await for the flight.

I already shared the breakfast I had at the airport for Food Friday a few weeks back, so I will now fast forward... =)

Bohol Beach Club

We arrived in Bohol nearly 2PM and after checking in at the Dumaluan Resort in Panglao Island, K and I rested first and late in the afternoon, we walked along the beach. One of the famous resorts in Panglao - the Bohol Beach Club - was just next to Dumaluan, so we went there, too, just to "see" how it was. While walking back to our resort, we saw this chef grilling some foods and automatically I told K that I wanted to eat chicken barbecue. K suggested we check out what Dumaluan has to offer.

It took a while before we ate dinner, and since the foods in Dumaluan was reasonable, we decided to eat there.

Bacon - Banana

Chicken Bbq

Since I was already craving for it, I had the chicken barbecue, while K had the resort's specialty, the Bacon Wrapped Banana. I forgot the exact name of the food, but it was delicious! I apologize for the poor image on the foods, lighting was so bad as we were eating near the shore. If I put on the flash, it would look much horrible, and if I put on the auto or the night mode, everything was too dark. I took this on the manual mode and my camera gives blurred images if I have it on manual on a low light setting.

But really, these foods were delicious! K and I loved the mix of the salty bacon and the sweet banana, and paired it with the veggies, it was so great! My chicken barbecue was delicious, too! I loved how it was seasoned and cooked. Not being able to eat lunch, K and I surely had a feast!

Actually we human are only able to handhold a shot up till 1/60 second.

Your exposure for the blurred photo was 1 second. No photographers are able to handhold a shot for 1 second. Trying upping the ISO[800 will do the job]to obtain a higher shutter speed thus eliminating the blur and your photo won't be that dark.

;) Don't worry about the noise though, Neat Image can help with that.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
