Last October 30, 2009, the BiliranIsland.com staff had a photo-shoot at Higatangan Island with the website’s new model Tremaine Abad, the 16 year-old beautiful daughter of Mr. Arnold and Mrs. Marilyn Abad of Naval, Biliran.
The team rented a pump boat to take us to the famous sand bar but we hesitated in going at first because of rough sea condition. Then the webmaster requested a rubber boat for back-up from the good governor which he granted immediately. We left Naval port at 11:30 am and arrived in Higatangan Island at 12:30 pm. Our sponsor, the Higatangan Island Beach Resort provided us with free accommodation. The resort was awesome, with the beautiful landscape and very comfortable modern rooms.
Tremaine had the pictorials at the Higatangan Beach Resort and the shifting sandbar; and the photos will grace the website for its tourism campaign. After the photo-shoot, Tremaine and her friend along with the photographer Yhongs left the island and headed back home; while the rest of the team agreed to stay overnight at the resort where we sang our throats out with the videoke. Since the power supply of the island is very limited and only has electricity from 6 pm to 10:30 pm, the townsfolk only have 4 hours and a half to enjoy their television sets, to charge their cell phones, and to make ice in their refrigerators. The resort has its own power generator, so we still enjoyed the videoke while the rest of the island was covered in total darkness.
We headed back home in the morning with bright faces and were mesmerized by the beauty of the magnificent rock formation. The weather was fine, the sea was calm, and our hearts were captured by the resplendence of the island. As I told myself that I shall come back and fall in love with its charm over again.
