What Happened to Cambuhawe?

Many years ago, I was able to visit the Cambuhawe Springs in Balamban. I remember that there were numerous springs in the area and one (or two) of them fed a gigantic swimming pool. The water from the pool then flows straight towards a shallow brackish body of water which also flows towards the sea. Two weeks ago, […]

Dau Falls: An Experience Like No Other

Still wet from my short adventure in Binalayan Falls in Barangay Bonbon, I got on my bike and drove towards the direction of Barangay Suba, Samboan. My guide in Binalayan had said that the drive to Dau would be quick so changing into a dry pair of shorts wouldn’t make sense. And I agree. True […]

Cebu City Zoo’s New ‘Shiny’ Stars

Recently, I visited the Cebu City Zoo in Oppra, Kalunasan just to see how ‘everyone’ is doing. Two of my nephews, who were excited to see pythons in the flesh for the very first time, decided to tag along. My last visit was in February of 2010 when I met the facility’s then superstar Bogart […]

The Three Drops of Binalayan

When I saw a sign posted on a tree by the side of the road, however, I was like, “Why the heck not? I’m already here!” So I got off the highway, drove a few meters to a group huddled around a small store, and asked for directions. So, it turned out that the ‘store’ […]

Montañeza Falls: Malabuyoc’s Hidden Gem

The great thing about driving a motorbike when traveling is that you can stop wherever you want, whenever you want. A few weeks ago, I was looking for a particular waterfall in the town of Alegria. And although I did not know exactly where it was located, I decided to not ask around and try to locate it […]

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 […]
