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 […]

Canlaob Falls: A Beautiful Rediscovery

It was just an hour past noon. It was muggy and uncomfortable and the mid-day sun was blazing. But the trail was slowly growing darker. My shoulders felt heavier and the bag on my back seemed like a gigantic boulder. I stopped under a small tree and sat down, hoping that the dizziness would go […]

Crazy for Binaliw Spring

Whenever I travel to the northern end of Cebu, I always make it a point to stop at one of my most favorites places in the whole island. (I’ve already blogged about this place twice before here and here.) It doesn’t have well-manicured lawns or neatly arranged picnic tables or fine, white sand. To tell you the […]

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.

Rediscovering Tabogon’s Guiwanon Spring

It was already three in the afternoon when I decided to go ahead and locate the Guiwanon Cold Spring of Tabogon. I was at this small road-side store somewhere in Catmon eating a quick snack when the idea came to me.  As I was trying to remember all my options, I remembered a spot that I’d visited […]

One Night at The Henry Hotel Cebu

I admit, I’ve received several invites from hotels (local or islands away) in the past couple of years. Although I enjoy getting invites, the ones that really interest me are those from hotels that I find fascinating and worth a second look. A couple of weeks ago, I received an invite from the Henry Hotel Cebu. The Henry […]

A Day at the Archival Eco House

When I first heard about the Archival Eco House, I was ecstatic. I mean, I am a huge fan of gardening and I was told that the eco house was the go-to place for the few Cebuanos who want to excel in this tricky little hobby. Now, you must all understand that while I do […]

Return to Faith

“We would you like to invite you to travel to Socorro again this year!” Ate Daisy declared. I was on my way to work that morning when she saw me. I was a bit surprised to see her in the neighborhood. Although her family lives only a couple of houses away, I knew that she […]

Kugtong Spring: In Plain Sight

On my way to Moalboal, I suddenly felt the urge to explore the town of Alcantara. To be honest, the only places I’ve visited in Alcantara are their town church and the Boardwalk Zoo. And I’m pretty sure they have a lot more to offer. So, since I was already in the area, I thought, why […]
