Tabuelan’s Plaza: More Than the Usual

This is not a huge feature on Tabuelan and their plaza. Not really. But I just want to let everyone know how gorgeous the new (and improved) Tabuelan Plaza is. So, okay, honestly, I’m not even sure how ‘new’ this is because I don’t travel to Tabuelan very often (aside from the fact that I’ve […]

Last July 1, Cebu Pacific flew a few members of the local press and the blogging community to Davao City for the culmination of this year’s Juan for Fun Backpacker Challenge. I was one of the three Cebu bloggers who got invited to cover the event. If you’re wondering what the #JuanForFun challenge is, here’s a […]

Under The Bridge

Today, I was able to make a quick stop at the park under the Cansaga Bay Bridge. The last time that I dropped by, the place was barren and just basically lifeless. Now, the place looks so much better. Kudos to the local government of Consolacion for making sure locals in the area can have a […]

Ten Minutes in Pinamungajan

After a quick but refreshing (and may I add life-changing) swim in Alonguinsan’s Hidden Beach, it was time to get back on the road and head for home. The plan was to go back via Barili-Carcar. But I remembered that I still had at least two hours to spare. So, I opted for the longer […]

Senior Citizens Park

Last November 27, 2012, the Cebu City government officially opened the Senior Citizens Park. The Senior Citizens Park sits on a lot previously occupied by a huge warehouse just across the Cebu City Hall. Due to its close proximity to Carbon Market, the building was once used as a storage facility for fresh produce from […]

Balamban’s Plaza

During my recent visit to Balamban, I was finally able to see for myself the town’s seaside plaza. Situated just in front of the bus terminal and the public market, the plaza is a refreshing break from the hectic and often riotous life of the poblacion. It’s interesting to note that despite the proximity, the […]

The New Plaza

After around five years, Cebuanos can once again enjoy their beloved Plaza Independencia. The plaza was closed in 2006 due to the construction of the South Road Properties Tunnel (which runs directly underneath the plaza). When the tunnel was completed, the restoration, conservation, and beautification of the plaza followed. And finally, last May 8, 2011, […]

Southern Bend

So the last town that we visited was the Heritage Town of Boljoon. Boljoon is one of the oldest towns in Cebu. It is a 5th class municipality with 11 baranggays. Its main industries are farming and fishing. Boljoon’s coastal plains, cliffs, mountain ranges, and hills are all in very close proximity to the Bohol Strait. […]

Oslob Reborn

In 2007, I was introduced to the southern town of Oslob for the very first time. I saw its inner roads, met its people, and discovered its delightfully unique provincial charm. I instantly fell in love with it. In 2008, a very unfortunate incident took place in this sleepy little town. The church of the Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepcion and its rectory – two […]

Lake Danao Park

We left Mangodlong Rock Resort at around 4 in the afternoon. Our driver, Manong Ban-ban said that he’d first take us to Lake Danao Park so that we could enjoy the place while the sun was still up. Since we didn’t know the way around, we could only say yes. Also, we didn’t really know […]

Clean And Green Sibonga

  Like the Carmen plaza, the town plaza of Sibonga is really nice. It’s perfect for afternoon walks and long after-supper chit-chats. And the park is just a couple of meters away from the really nice town church. And right beside that, is a line of centuries-old houses. And yeah, I would have to add that the entire […]

Marcelo At Night

  In my unending quest to find a place where I can relax without spending a single penny, I reached the beautiful island of Mactan. I remembered the park just beneath the second Mactan Bridge (Marcelo Fernan Bridge) and decided to check it out. The park was well-lit and there were plenty of benches and picnic […]

Ginatilan: The Quiet Life

  Just a few minutes from Samboan is the town of Ginatilan. The first thing you notice about Ginatilan is that it’s very clean and peaceful. The people are quiet but when you talk to them, they’re very friendly. Too bad we weren’t able to tour the town much because we got there around 5 […]

The “Family” Park

I woke up around noon today and mom told me that it was a good day to roam around Cebu and take some photos. Yeah, indeed it was. The sun was bright, the traffic was light and everyone’s having their siesta. Wait. Did you just say siesta? Now, who am I, someone who hasn’t got eight hours […]
