Finding Ronda’s Lapnis Spring

That’s it! This spring they call Lapnis just doesn’t want to be found! I give up! Like my first 3 tries, there was no one in the area who could point me in the right direction. Still, I decided to continue driving and look for the coconut trees near the ‘turn.’ I realized that there […]

Falling for Lusno Falls

To tell you the truth, finding Ronda’s Lusno Falls wasn’t easy. Alegria’s Cambais Falls was hard, but Lusno really takes the cake. Although Lusno Falls is located in Ronda, a lot of people that we asked on our way swore that it is in Argao. In fact, the road-side sign which tells you where to make a […]

Life Under the Bridge

I was on my way to Lapu-Lapu one day to check out a wonderful spot. Anticipating horrible traffic along A. C. Cortez in Mandaue, I decided to take the smaller roads which I knew would lead me straight to the bridge. But, as fate would have it, I missed a turn or something and instead […]

Discovering Pityak and the Best Chicken Tinola

The original plan was to visit the town of Ronda to check out a spring called Lapnis. The spring is quite popular among local thrill-seekers and I wanted to see for myself if it is indeed as awesome as they say. I knew that finding it would be pretty challenging, so I decided to ask Bojo to come […]

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 […]

If you’re wondering where Guba is, it is located next to Barangay Sirao (where the famous Ayala Heights is located.) Anyways, long story short, […]

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 […]
