Caohagan Island: Through The Eyes of a First-Timer

Believe it or not, but I’ve never been on an island-hopping tour in Mactan. As a matter of fact, the only island in Mactan that I’ve been to (other than the mainland) is Olango. So when a friend said that we would be going on an island-hopping trip for his birthday, I didn’t say no. […]

Shell Island: A World Away

After an event at SM Seaside City Cebu, a friend and I decided to visit the small sea-side park near the South Road Properties (SRP) entrance.  The park offers an amazing view of the Mactan Channel and is frequented by those who want to ‘escape’ the busy weekend traffic in the city. My friend said […]

A Return to Moalboal’s Bas Daku

After being away for several months, I knew that I had a lot of things to do. And by ‘things’ I actually mean places. And by do, in reality, I mean visit. So, since South Cebu was on my mind, I decided to pack my bag, get on my bike, and head to the beautiful […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
