Before the seventh month of the year ended, I had the chance to see the Aqua Kingdom of Pescador Island, unexpectedly. That was a sunny weekend when I planned a solo jaunt to the stunning beach of Basdako, Moalboal, Cebu. Upon arriving at Cebu South Bus Terminal, I quickly took a yellow bus (Ceres Liner) via Moalboal-Badian. I was shocked when I saw my friends inside the bus and completely surprised when I happened to know that we are heading to the same destination. The only difference is they will be staying in Panagsama beach, while, I will be staying at the shoreline of Basdaku, Moalboal using my tent.
