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 […]

New Favorite

So, a few weeks ago, we went to Oslob to hopefully find a place where we could stay for the long break. However, since things didn’t quite look good, we had to look somewhere else. Fortunately, out of all the many places where we could stop for a few minutes during our long ride, we […]

White Sands

A few weeks ago, I was finally able to visit Cebu White Sands in Maribago in the Island of Mactan.  For those of you who didn’t already know, Cebu White Sands at Maribago Beach was one of the most well-known resorts in Mactan. Before the arrival of high-end and modern resorts like Shangri-la, Plantation Bay, […]

Cordova Sunset

Last week, my friends and I decided to go to Baranggay Day-as in Cordova to take a couple of photos of the ever-changing skyline of Cebu. I suggested that we take the ferry from Pier 3 to the Ouano Wharf instead of crossing the bridge to Mactan Island. I told them that it would be my first […]

Bantayan Island Sizzles

I’ve been to Bantayan Island a couple of times in the past. However, I’ve never tried going there during Holy Week. I swear I once heard someone rave about his Holy Week in Bantayan. He babbled for more than an hour. I was equally impressed, annoyed, and more importanly, intrigued. Hahaha. However, I knew that […]

Alcoy’s Tingko Beach

When I visited the sleepy little town of Alcoy a few weeks ago, I was only able to take pictures of the town church. We had to hurry because it was getting late and we still had to visit Argao. Well, today, I was lucky enough to get a glimpse of more than just the […]

Just For A Day

(MyCebuPhotoBlog was named the Best Cebu Blog at the 2010 Best Cebu Blog Awards. Thank you! 🙂) When my mom found out that one of the prizes was an overnight stay for two at the Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort and Spa, she was ecstatic. She doesn’t travel a lot. In fact, she hasn’t been on […]

Cause For Concern

Here are some photos posted by SSC forumer Narnian_King. The photos show vandalized corals at Club Kontiki in Mactan, Cebu. I’m pretty sure we have existing laws against such acts. And I think it’s high time that we see them properly implemented. The culprits have to pay!   Vandals!

Tragic Wednesday, Good Friday

Last Holy Wednesday, the entire family traveled to San Remegio for the long break. Most of my cousins, aunts, and uncles (my dad included) got on their bikes and braved the 3-hour drive to the northern end of the island. Some of my cousins, however, had to take the bus because we figured that it […]
