In Photos: Super Typhoon Yolanda in Cebu

On November 8, 2013, supertyphoon Yolanda – dubbed by many as the strongest typhoon in recorded history – hit the Philippine islands. Days before it was predicted to make a landfall, people had already began filling their supply cabinets with necessary supplies. This was in part due to rumors that the typhoon was going to […]

The Unplanned Danasan Trip

So, I have to admit. Our trip last week to Danao’s steadily rising eco-tourism superpower was totally unplanned. Here’s the original deal: My mom simply wanted to go to Carmen to visit the Monastery of the Benedictine Monks in Barangay Corte.

MCPB Updates 28

So I just found out this morning that my Ranch Resort post yesterday was my 600th post. I can’t believe I made it to 600. When I was starting, I wasn’t sure if this whole blogging thing would last.

Cebu Updates 9

Here’s a set of fresh photo updates from all over the Metro. Cebu is currently experiencing what a lot of people would refer to as the ‘Second Ceboom.’ Ceboom is a term which describes a period of boombastic progress, development, and success in Cebu. If you want to know whether or not these people are […]

Alegria: Beauty and Heritage

During our very long round-south trip last week, we dropped by the quiet town of Alegria to grab something to eat.  It was already two pm, way past lunchtime, and we were starving. Plus, it didn’t help that all the people from Barili to Badian were apparently taking their siesta. And I must admit, although the […]
