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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Hidden Valley Mountain Resort: Pinamungajan’s Secret

A couple of weeks ago, I learned that the town of Pinamungajan now has a wave pool. I’m not sure if this is the very first wave pool in Cebu, but if it is, then this is definitely great news. Now, as a Cebu traveler, I was understandably intrigued and a little confused. I’ve been […]

Ghosts in Santander?

My cousin Anthony gave me a copy of a group photo taken last Sunday, February 8. The photo was taken by Harry Celeste, a friend and a fellow motorbike enthusiast. Their group, VegaForce Riders Pack Cebu, went on a round-south trip over the weekend. Just before 6 pm, the group stopped at the Sanayon Park in […]

Highs and Lows

After months of waiting, it was finally time to go on another solo road trip. The last solo road trip I had was probably more than a year ago. See, the old bike that I was using was deteriorating fast (it was more than 8 years old) and I didn’t want to have to deal with […]

Crystal Clear Linaw

So, this week, we traveled all the way to the southern town of Santander for my new bike’s very first long drive. As expected, even though the weather was a bit crazy, it was a pretty fun trip. On our way back, we stopped by the Linaw Pool in Argao. If I’m not mistaken, Linaw […]

Under The Bridge

Today, I was able to make a quick stop at the park under the Cansaga Bay Bridge. The last time that I dropped by, the place was barren and just basically lifeless. Now, the place looks so much better. Kudos to the local government of Consolacion for making sure locals in the area can have a […]

The Ranch Resort: Wet and Wild (West)

So last week, I had the chance to tour a few western towns on a Haojue motorcycle. From Toledo City, I went to Pinamungajan and Aloguinsan. Before leaving Toledo proper though, I dropped by the very intriguing The Ranch Resort. I’ve been to the resort once but I never really got the chance to get […]

San Remigio In A Jiffy

Last Sunday, my family and I decided to take a quick trip to San Remigio to hopefully book a room for the long holiday. My family has been doing it for years now and we wanted to make sure that we will be getting the best room for this year’s Holy Week break as my […]

A Day in Medellin

Two weeks ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to tag along. She (and a few other officemates) needed to go to Medellin for an out-of-town work-related stuff. I’ve never been to Medellin so I didn’t say no. The town of Medellin is a second class municipality with a population of around 50 thousand. The […]

Liloan Surprises!

One of the amazing things about Cebu is that although it is too small (it’s even smaller than a dot on the world map,) it is packed with so much good stuff. Everything that you can think of is right here. And just when you thought that you’ve seen it all, you find out that […]

NRT

So, after months of planning, headaches, excitement, and replanning, we were finally able to tour the northern end of the island of Cebu. The plan was to leave Cebu City for Hagnaya Wharf in San Remigio on May 29, stay in Bantayan Island for a night, and come back the next day May 30, to try the […]

Stunning Tabuelan

Last Sunday, at around four in the morning, I woke up to see my dad stuffing a few shirts inside his small traveling bag. When I asked where he was going, he said that he was going to Bogo with a friend. His friend was asked by another friend to accompany him for the ‘breaking in’ […]

Lovely Bogo

I had the chance to visit the lovely city of Bogo last Sunday. However, I wasn’t able to check it thoroughly because we only stopped for a short while to grab something to eat. Sige lang, naa pay next time! Hehehe. Aside from the Gaisano and a few popular franchises already available in the area, […]
