    My July Yoga Practice: a Journal

    (July 1-30, 2023) I thought I would OBE in July through repeated sessions in my daily practice. But it didn't happen. Even so, it made me proficient in my meditation. This doesn't dampen my resolve. I will continue my daily progression in Hemi-Sync until I finish the program...more »»

    More on Siquijor Island:

    Siquijor Island Local Info

    Jeeps - there are only 2 routes for jeeps within Siquijor Island - and they are rare. Most people have their own motorcycle transport.

    1. Siquijor Port to Lazi - last trip leaves at 3pm from station near market
    2. Lazi to Siquijor Port - jeeps depart from the Lazi Port area. 5 jeeps, the last trip at 12:30 pm. Lazi to San Juan, P50.
    3. Larena Port to Lazi - jeeps are unpredictable. As of this writing, there is only 1 jeep plying the Larena-Lazi route. This jeep leaves Larena for Lazi at 9:50am. After that, no more jeep. You'll have to take a tricycle to Siquijor Pob for jeeps going to Lazi
    4. Lazi to Larena Port - 6am (daily) and 9 am (M-Th)

    Food - these were suggested by a local to me

    1. Lechon manok & liempo - roasted pork belly and chicken at Joel's in Siquijor Poblacion. I've tried this myself...yummy, even if the chicken was no longer hot
    2. Bibingka - sweetened rice cake by Fidy's Bibingka (P30) in Sawang, Maria. I've come back for this and I buy for other people as well as 'pasalubong' - they love this
    3. Siopao - at the Rosita store near Thrifty (P25) in Siquijor Poblacion
    4. Peanut butter - by Rene. Just ask around in Siquijor Poblacion. It's popular
    5. Torta - sweet cakish bread at the Thrifty story in Siquijor Poblacion

    Siquijor - Tagbilaran - Cebu City Boat Trips (as of Jan 2023)

    En route to Cebu City, the ferries usually make a stop-over to Tagbilaran (Bohol) to pick-up more passengers or unload.

    1. Ocean Jet - 2 hours, 8:20am, at Siquijor Port
      To Tagbilaran: P800/tourist & open air, P1200/business class
      To Cebu: ?
    2. Lite Ferries - at Larena Port,
      To Tagbilaran: T-Th-Sun, P475/standard, 7pm, 3 hours, PHP?
      To Cebu: T-Th-Sun, 7pm, 7 hours, PHP 650


    Siquijor - Plaridel Boat Trips (as of Jan 2023)
    1. Lite Ferries - at Larena Port, T-Th-Sun, 2:00 am, 5 hours, PHP?


    Siquijor - Cebu (Liloan) - Cebu City BUS Trip (as of Jan 2023)

    There is only one bus plying this route - Sugbo Urban. Tourist class coach, a/c, comfortable, Sun-Fri (these dates keep changing). P420 for bus, P275 for ferry to Liloan. Larena Port around 5 am, makes a clockwise roundtrip around Siquijor Island - Larena, Enrique Villanueva, Maria, Lazi (stops at Lazi market for breakfast and leaves 6:50 am), San Juan, Siquijor (arrives 8am, P50 from Lazi to Siquijor Poblacion) and catches the 1pm ferry at Larena Port (Sundays at 3 pm) for Liloan, Cebu and resumes its land route. Arrives Cebu City (South Bus Terminal) 10 pm.

    Sugbo Urban is the cheapest and most convenient way because it goes around the island (clockwise) along the circumferential road, passing through - Enrique Villanueva, Maria, Lazi, San Juan, Siquijor...and back to Larena where it takes the ferry at 1 pm. This saves you the hassle and high transport cost of a tricycle. Besides, it's a long trip from the other side of the island to be taking by tricycle.
