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. […]

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 Quiet Afternoon in Tuburan’s Molobolo Spring

Whenever I travel to the northern part of Cebu, I always find myself going towards the direction of Tuburan. I mean, there are a lot of other wonderful tourist spots and destinations in the north. But I don’t know why I just always end up dropping by the quiet town of Tuburan. Tuburan isn’t unlike […]

Moalboal Town Plaza: A New Favorite

Moalboal has always been my most favorite places in Cebu. In fact, I’ve been to Moalboal a gazillion times (whether on purpose or by chance.) Strangely, I never really figured out whether or not the town has a plaza. All I know is that there is a big open space in front of the town […]

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. […]

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. The wedding was going to be in Medellin, and they asked me if I could come. I promised that I wouldn’t miss it. Especially since I also had other interesting […]

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 […]

Sumilon Island: Southern Treasure

Sitting near the top of my travel bucket list is the island of Sumilon. Located off the coast of Bancogon in Oslob (around 125 kilometers from Cebu City,) Sumilon is what a lot of people refer to as Southern Cebu’s “biggest treasure.” The coral island of Sumilon has an area of around 24 hectares. It […]

Surf’s Up!

On my way to Oslob to see the bad-ass Tumalog Falls, I decided to make a short stop in Mahayahay. Mahayahay is Argao’s well-loved public beach. It’s much like Talisay but with less houses in the area. The sand is not white but it’s not dark brown either. Just perfect. The public beach is huge, […]

Hidden For A Reason

So, it’s a long weekend for me. There’s a holiday at work on Monday and we’re moving the Independence Day holiday from Wednesday to Tuesday. So, that’s a total of 4 days with nothing to do but stare at my computer (which has no Internet connection.) I knew I had to travel but I didn’t […]
