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 […]

Malapascua Island: From Another Angle

I enjoy solo travels. I’m pretty sure I’ve already established that little fact. But every once in a while, I do crave for company. I guess it’s human nature. There’s that unspoken need to have someone standing right next to you when something awful, or awesome, or unexpected, or stupid happens. While I perform best when […]

San Remigio Beach Club Turns 14!

A couple of weeks ago, San Remigio Beach Club held a very special event to celebrate its 14th year in the industry. Members of the local media and a few selected bloggers were also invited to travel to the resort to see the celebration first hand. Although I received an email invite, I initially didn’t want to go. […]

Liog-Liog Rock: An Unexpected Discovery

Over the weekend, I traveled to the town of Ronda to look for a particular spring situated in a small upland barangay called Butong. I was able to locate the barangay but I wasn’t able to find the spring. The people I asked couldn’t point me in the right direction. To be fair, one person did […]

Love, Friendships, and Malapascua

About two months ago, I received a very special invitation from my good friends Cring2x and Dante. After years of dating, they were finally getting married. The wedding was going to be in Medellin, and they asked me if I could come. I promised that I wouldn’t miss it. Especially since I also had other interesting […]

Hermit’s Cove: A Hidden Beauty

Two weeks ago, my cousin Onyot raved about his trip to Aloguinsan. He said that they went to this really nice beach that’s secluded and just really pretty. Since I’ve been to Aloguinsan’s Hidden Beach at least four times, I told him that I knew exactly where they went. When he showed me their photos, however, I realized that […]

Cordova: One Year and Three Months Later

Over the weekend, I drove all the way to Cordova to revisit a lovely little barangay called Bang-Bang. If you can remember, Bang-Bang was one of the worst-hit areas when a huge oil-spill plagued the Cebu Strait and the Mactan Channel a year ago. The spill was caused by the collision of passenger ship MV […]

Movenpick, At Last!

So, interesting story. Two weeks ago, I got an invite from the marketing head of Movenpick Resort and Spa in Mactan (previously Hilton.) If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll notice that the resort has been featured a couple of times since I discovered Olango (my new favorite.) So, anyway, Movenpick was recently awarded the […]

Cordova

If you want to de-stress without having to shell out a fortune, go to Cordova. Only twenty minutes from Lapu-Lapu City, Cordova offers peace, quiet, and lotsa fresh air. And don’t forget the amazing food and the jaw-dropping view of Metro Cebu! Work has been crazy lately, so last Sunday, exactly one week after my […]

Peace and Chaos in Olango

Okay, so last Sunday, I was looking for a little peace and quiet.  I don’t know why and how but out of all the possible options, I found myself driving (once again) towards the island of Mactan. And before I could even realize, I was headed towards the Mactan Shrine. I know it would’ve been […]

Trekking Sumilon Island

Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort offers a lot of interesting activities.  They have fishing, fish feeding, kayaking, and all sorts of water sports. They even have volleyball, book reading, and whale shark watching. But one thing that sets the resort apart from all other similar resorts is this one truly unique activity – trekking. Sumilon is […]

Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort: The Perfect Getaway

Although Cebu is such a tiny city, life here can sometimes be very fast and hectic. During the rush hour, getting stuck in traffic can be as easy as spotting Koreans in Ayala. Cebu is a growing metropolis. But sadly, Cebu is growing far too rapidly that Cebuanos don’t know how to react. It’s pretty […]

Sumilon Island: Southern Treasure

Sitting near the top of my travel bucket list is the island of Sumilon. Located off the coast of Bancogon in Oslob (around 125 kilometers from Cebu City,) Sumilon is what a lot of people refer to as Southern Cebu’s “biggest treasure.” The coral island of Sumilon has an area of around 24 hectares. It […]

Once In a Lifetime

Okay, some of you might think that I’m exaggerating but that’s exactly how I felt when I finally experienced Mactan Island’s Plantation Bay Resort and Spa last week. The experience was totally once in a lifetime! Ok, I’m getting a little ahead of myself here. Sorry. So, yeah. A few weeks back, everyone at work, […]

Going Solo in Moalboal

So I had this really wonderful plan. I knew it was a little far-fetched considering that the place was almost a hundred kilometers away.  But I knew I had to leave the city for a quick getaway. Anyway, my brilliant plan? Go to Bas Daku in Moalboal. On my bike. Haha. Cool plan, right? The only problem […]

An Afternoon In Luyang

Last Friday (holiday, yey!), I woke up just a few minutes before noon. I checked my phone and I found out that I had two unread messages and four missed calls. They were all from Harry. He’d been trying to contact me to tell me that they (together with Randy, Randy’s niece Motty, and Randy’s two dogs) were going […]

Nights In Lambug

A week ago, Harry, Randy, Jan, Redjie, and I went to the beautiful southern town of Badian. We didn’t go there just to relax and have fun. We went there mainly for an environmental program which we hoped, however small, would eventually make a huge impact. The person who came up with this wonderful plan was Randy […]

Chillin’ In Oslob

  On our way home, we decided to drop by Oslob to take some pics. We had a lot of fun there. Not only did we see Oslob’s famous seaside church and historical ruins, we were also able to check out Oslob’s very interesting cemetery. (Though I’ve been here years ago, it still feels good to […]
