Weekend Getaway at Tejero Highland Resort and Adventure Park

Countless summers and trips from Cebu to Dumaguete to Valencia always have a ‘getaway to Tejero’ in the itinerary; it’s one of the non-negotiable aspects when our side of the clan visits our Lola’s birthplace. The other non-negos are buying torta and pure tablea sa tiangge. =) In early 2000s and up to a few years back, the place looks very basic with its river-fed pool and a few tables here and there for day use. Pool maintenance was sporadic but understandable as the water flows constantly from the river diverted into the pool and goes out, Continue Reading

Salagdoong Beach Resort in Siquijor Review

Siquijor Tour Series: An Overnight Stay in a White Sand Beach Resort The local government of Siquijor manages a public resort. Are you surprise? :) Yep they do and what’s even more awesome is that the government-owned and managed resort Salagdoong Beach Resort and Hotel Agripino sits on prime white sand beach property in the town of Maria. To get there at Salagdoong Resort and Hotel Agripino, you will be passing through Salagdoong Forest, a large area planted with Mahogany trees. I imagine its a bit creepy if you walk the whole stretch at Continue Reading

How to Book Great Hotel Rooms at Affordable Prices

Everybody deserves a break and I mean everyone, no exceptions. Remember how Jack becomes dull with all work and no play? Yep, we don’t want that happening to us. I am working online full time for over a year now and I take breaks in between months of serious work. Otherwise my productivity suffers; I become dull, bored and ineffective. So it’s very important for me to take mini breaks, to bask in the sun and go for adventures and new thrills. Do you feel the same way I do? Going for vacations open doors for you and allows you to experience Continue Reading

Crown Regency Cebu Skywalk Experience and Rates

It did not sink fully with me until a few days ago that majority of tourists in Cebu especially those coming from Manila and other provinces count the different Sky Adventures offered by Crown Regency Cebu Fuente as must do activities while vacationing here.  I’ve also read from many itineraries that some tourists plan to try the Skywalk Adventure or the Edge Coaster or a sample of the Extreme Adventure like zipline. Those who are not traveling on a tight budget and have the required courage, plan to try them all. Yep indeed, the Sky Continue Reading

Summit Circle Hotel: Continuing Cebu Midtown’s Legacy

The Fuente Osmena Rotunda could very well be the heart of Cebu City. It’s that place where Jones Avenue converges with Mango Avenue, where Downtown and Uptown Cebu City meets. The Rotunda’s significance is etched in the history of Cebu because it’s been the usual place where Cebuanos gather for rallies, it's also a favorite drop off point for those NGO's and civic organizations mobilizing relief goods operations for calamity stricken places. The circle is likewise home to the province’ Christmas tree every December as well as to the Shrine of Continue Reading

Prequel to a Fun Cebu Weekend at Summit Circle!

I know service and servicing intimately. Very intimate in fact that I strongly believe I have a good feel if a customer service rep or a liaison officer is merely extending courtesies to a client because its part of the job and not because there is that genuine concern for the client. After graduating from university a decade ago, I've been working directly with clients from serving as a new accounts staff to becoming a pharma sales and marketing t.m. to my current 'main job' which is managing helpdesk support. Anyhow, 'servicing' is a Continue Reading

Virgin Beach Resort Cebu Summer Getaway

I mostly blog about things that captures my interest. And you would probably guess that one of my major interests is blogging about travel destinations and hidden gems and places in our country and sharing my experiences in the hopes of inspiring someone to discover more of the Philippines.  So it was a nice surprise for me that last December I opened a message that invites Penfires to experience a beach resort tucked away and off the beaten path in Daan Bantayan, Cebu. The email was from Ron Perry, owner of Virgin Beach Resort Cebu. Finally Continue Reading

Beach Resort Near Cebu City: Blue Reef Hotel in Mactan Island

Last Saturday when we checked out affordable beach resorts near Cebu City, which are of course those found in Mactan Island, we were a bit bewildered why there were only a few beach goers in the first three cheap Mactan resorts we've been to when it was in fact, a weekend. We surmised that it might be because most locals are still heady from the Sinulog festivities days ago and choose not to go on another adventure to the beach this soon. Whatever the reasons maybe, it was still perfect timing for us for we got good photos of the resorts since Continue Reading
