I got a souvenir from a May 2010 trip to Dumaguete, Negros Oriental. I got stung by what looked like a box jellyfish here on my right arm. Here’s what the scar looks like…

I wrote about the details at Jellyfish Itchy Scar.
Fortunately, there was only one jellyfish at that time near the Manjuyod beach sandbar.
Anyway… at low tide, the sandbar can get firm enough for you to bike on. It leads all the way from somewhere on the Tañon Strait (the body of water between Negros Oriental and Cebu), all the way west towards Manjuyod, Negros Oriental (which is north of Bais, Neg Or).
At around 11:00 that fateful morning of 04 May 2010, water was covering the sandbar. But you could kneel on the sandbar and enjoy the cool water around your shoulders. Just be on the lookout for jellyfish! 🙂
(Ack! The zannel.com video no longer exists…)
You’ll notice where the color of the water shifts from deep blue to a lighter shade of emerald green. That’s the part above the sandbar.
Those houses on stilts or concrete pillars are for rent. Someone from Manjuyod comes around at low tide to rent it out, according to Ken (the guide who poured vinegar on my arm after I got stung by the jellyfish).
