Photo of the Day: Turtle Dude

What would you do if you get punched by someone? Yes, you’ll most likely fight back or, if that person happens to be Manny Pacquiao, complain to the authorities. Now, what happens if you go snorkeling and, while in the process of enjoying the underwater scene, you get punched by — of all creatures of this world — a sea turtle? What would you do? We must admit the question made us pause for a second or two. Our kababayan, Rizza Diaz (rizzadiaz), bravely fought back by, well, taking photos and sending a lot of love to the cool turtle dude. She was in Apo Island, she said, and we had to do a little bit of sleuthing to learn that it’s the Apo Island Marine Reserve in Negros Oriental. Oh, you want proof of the sea turtle encounter? Here’s the photo (click photo to enlarge):
