Kalag-Kalag 2018 in Cebu

Each year, while the rest of the world is busy with their Halloween costumes and parties, Filipinos celebrate a pretty unique and special event. Every first and second of November, Filipinos flock to the cemetery to honor their beloved dead. This age-old tradition is not only an enduring testament of how Filipinos value their family and loved ones, it also shows […]

Cebu Updates 23

After I returned to the Philippines from my work assignments abroad, I immediately got back to watch I love the most – traveling. And you know what I do when I travel — noticing the new things, taking a photo (or video) of them, and letting all of you guys know. So, for the twenty-third […]

Out of Cebu: Davao City and the Kadayawan – Day 3

On our third day (a Sunday) in the beautiful city of Davao, we had to get up extra early. See, it was Indak-Indak day and everyone was pretty much already up by 5 am. After a quick breakfast at the hotel restaurant, we were off to the streets of Downtown Davao City to witness the […]

Tabuelan’s Plaza: More Than the Usual

This is not a huge feature on Tabuelan and their plaza. Not really. But I just want to let everyone know how gorgeous the new (and improved) Tabuelan Plaza is. So, okay, honestly, I’m not even sure how ‘new’ this is because I don’t travel to Tabuelan very often (aside from the fact that I’ve […]

Mines and Tunnels in the Heart of Toledo City

To be completely honest, I have no clear idea how we got here. All I remember is that Zandro (of Oz Racing) and his team invited me to join their Moto Adventure ride through the mountain barangays  of Cebu City. First, we went up the TransCentral Highway via Lahug and Busay. Then, we crossed some […]

Biga Pit: Toledo City’s Captivating Man-Made Wonder

When I learned that the Cebu Motor Adventure Ride was going to make a stop in Toledo, I was very excited. Although Toledo is very accessible (and quite near,) I never really had a chance to fully explore it. I’m sure it has a lot to offer and it’s a shame that the places that […]

Out of Cebu: Discovering Ormoc and My Love for Piña

Last month, I got invited to cover a very special event in the city of Ormoc. As part of the city’s move to promote its exciting new project, the local government flew in members of the media from various parts of the country. Most well-known local publications and news agencies were asked to send in […]

A Scenic Stop in Lovely Ginatilan

NOTE: I was supposed to post this months ago but then things got a bit hectic. Then, when I finally got a chance to focus all my energy on my blogs, even more things happened. And now I am here in Vietnam for a long-term job assignment. Con: I won’t be able to travel around […]

Liki Spring: Discovering a New Gem

I turned left towards the long lonely road which connects the towns of Borbon and Tabuelan. I don’t know why I did exactly, as my original plan was to head straight to the City of Bogo and look for new things to feature. But just like most of my travels, I ended up NOT doing the […]

Out of Cebu: My #SuperStay at Summit Hotels and Resorts

Several weeks ago, I got a fam tour invite from Summit Hotels and Resorts. For those of you who are not very familiar, fam tour basically just means familiarization tour. During a fam tour, the invited guests are given a chance to experience the product, concept, or even a locality that is being promoted. And […]

A Return to Tieza Botanical Garden

Many years ago (6 to be exact,) me and my friends decided to do one thing we never thought we’d be able to do. We set out on a quest to traverse the mountains of Talamban and Budlaan in order to reach San Pedro Calungsod Peak in Barangay Sirao. This little misadventure of ours was […]

Revisiting Borbon’s Silmugi River Park

Several years ago, the Silmugi River Park in the municipality of Borbon in Northern Cebu was touted as the most promising tourist attraction in the province. Offering guests a beautiful view of the Silmugi River as well as a picturesque walk through its well-protected mangrove forest, the park was expected to become one of Cebu’s […]

Waiting for Sunset at Pinamungajan’s Public Beach

After leaving the Capilla Santa Ana compound in Toledo City, I decided to continue driving towards the town of PInamungajan. Since it was only three in the afternoon, my plan was to keep driving until I reach Aloguinsan, take the road towards Mantalongon in Barili, exit in Carcar, and then head back to Cebu city. […]

An Unintended Tour of Toledo’s Capilla Santa Ana

One day I found myself driving towards the city of Toledo. There was no particular destination or plan. But as I was driving through Naga, I made a quick decision to swerve right. I always enjoy the short drive from Naga City to Toledo via the Uling Road. The whole route is a mix of […]

Calasa Falls: An Accidental Discovery

After my stop in the quiet little town of Boljoon (Ili Rock Viewing Deck) and a quick lunch in Oslob, I was on my way to the town of Moalboal for some much-needed swim. The trip was going to be a long one as Moalboal is basically eight towns away. And I was certain that I’d be […]

10000 Roses Cafe: Cordova’s Ten Thousand Blooms

Last February 5, a new tourist destination opened in Cebu. Although it is not your typical tourist spot (as it is a coffee shop,) news of its very interesting ‘feature’ quickly spread on social media. And in less than a week, this new cafe broke the local Internet, became everyone’s obsession, and made headlines. Quite interesting, […]
