First Look at Boom na Boom sa Sugbo 2018

I’m quite excited for Christmas this year. Not only because I finally get to stay home for the holidays this year (last year I was in Vietnam,) but also because there are a lot of new and nice things to see and do in Cebu. One of them is the Boom na Boom sa Sugbo […]

Liloan Golf and Leisure Estate: Hidden from View

Last Saturday, I traveled to the town of Liloan to cover an event. I was invited my a distant cousin who works as a marketing officer for a real estate company. They were launching a new horizontal development and she wanted me to see the whole place for myself. I was thinking of traveling somewhere […]

Simala: Beauty Unfolding

One of the first places that I visited as soon as I arrived home was Simala. As a Catholic, the shrine is very dear to me. I come here whenever there are huge decisions to make or when there are things that I feel I couldn’t handle on my own. Simala has become sort of […]

A Footbridge in Tuburan

After a quick stop in the Tuburan for some snacks, I was back on the road. It was getting dark really fast and Toledo City was still miles away. And from Toledo, it would take another hour to reach the City of Naga. That means that I’d arrive home at around 8 in the evening. […]

The Sad State of Danao’s Durano Foundation Complex

The Durano Foundation Complex in Guinsay, Danao City has always been one of the most fascinating religious sites in Northern Cebu.┬áDespite its relative obscurity, the complex has somehow become quite popular among people traveling to the northern end of the island. The Durano Foundation is a two-hectare property in Barangay Guinsay in Danao City. The […]

Guadalupe Parish Church: A New Beginning

The Parish Church of Barangay Guadalupe means a lot to me. Not only because I still currently live in Barangay Guadalupe but more importantly because I basically grew up in this church. When I was a kid, I was a member of the quite popular (during that time) Guadalupe Children’s Choir. And on weekends, I’d […]

Mantayupan Falls: Revisiting the Jewel of Barili

During one of my recent South Cebu rides, I decided to stop by the town of Barili┬áto complete a simple mission. This mission was to see the Mantayupan Falls again. You see, I haven’t seen or been to the waterfall in such a long time. If I’m not mistaken, the last time that I saw […]

10,000 Roses Cafe: After the Deluge

In early 2017, 10,000 Roses Cafe and More opened its doors to the public for the very first time. The opening wasn’t such a big deal. The events that followed, however, made headlines in local dailies and littered (almost) everyone’s Facebook newsfeed. A new Cebu tourist destination was born. And every single one wanted first-hand […]

Suddenly, Curbada dela Maria

During one of my many South Cebu motorbike trips last month, I found myself driving towards Mantalongon in Barili via the mountain roads of Aloguinsan. I am quite familiar with this short cut as I discovered it by accident during my very first quest to find the Bojo River some years ago. While I am […]

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 […]

An Unplanned Photo Shoot at the Ka-Tilong Sunflower Farm

A couple of days after I arrived from Vietnam (where I stayed for around a year,) I immediately went back to doing one of my most favorite things in the world – doing a solo round-Cebu motorbike road trip. One of the many beautiful things that i discovered during this trip was Florentino’s Eco-Park in […]
