Angeles City Heritage Walking Tour – Sites and Itinerary Recommendations

Look to the past to know a city better. This is very true, aye? =) I was very fortunate and thankful to be part of the Angeles City Tourism's Total Tourist Experience last July. This tour trashed and debunked my preconceived notions about the city. It made me realized it was poor judgement on my part not to have thought of visiting Angeles before. The city was one of those places I know of but never really thought of visiting, because I thought the city wasn’t interesting enough and offers little. But now I know I was wrong. I urge you,if Continue Reading

Island Hopping to Virgin Island of Bantayan Cebu

It's the second day of our Bantayan vacation. We rose early with the sun, excited to go island hopping to Virgin Island. Our baon was freshly-catch seafood, a combo of blue crabs, local lobster, fish, octopus, that we are to cook once we get to the island. We also had mangoes, soft drinks, and puso for a complete, satisfying, delectable seafood island feast . Lami dyud!  ;) **For an updated Bantayan travel guide and list of accommodations in Sta Fe, you can refer to this post. We hopped on-board a motorized outrigger boat. Boat rental Continue Reading

Updated Bantayan Island Travel Guide and Accommodation Options

Some visitors prefer to skip the city and head straightaway to Sta Fe, Bantayan Island after arrival in the Mactan airport. Can this be done? Yes. But if I may suggest, I’d recommend that you spend the night in Cebu City and then make your way to the Cebu North Bus terminal around 4:45 AM. If you are the type who prefers the ‘no-sleep- adventures’, arrive in Mactan airport late night, then take the first trip to Hagnaya at 1 AM.  There is another one at 3 AM. But this can be taxing on your body, so make sure you have the stamina for the long Continue Reading

The Humble Silhig Lanot from Cebu Made it on TV – Make this your next pasalubong!

It’s a common sight at the Cebu – Mactan airport to see passengers carrying boxes of Shamrock Otap, CNT, Ayer’s, Zubuchon Lechon, dried mangoes and danggit. And why not? These are the popular pasalubong from Cebu.  I do too, but aside from these usual items, I also bring with me silhig lanot. I really do, as in haha.  Cebuanos we should make this our mission to make our silhig lanot famous! Unsa man, agree? Hehehe The first time I brought this broom on my trip back to Manila last 2006, there were 3 big ones sticking out of my duffel bag. Continue Reading

Freedom to Surf in Baler | Yes!  Non-Swimmers can surf too!

You may not know how to swim, but you can surf. I’ve found this out first hand when the road led us to Baler, Aurora Province this summer. Not only I, also my sister. Kenneth and I grew up in Mactan, our house was a mere 500 meters from the nearest shoreline, but we never learn to swim. So you understand how doubtful I was when told I don’t have to know how to swim to surf. ‘Ma’am Cille kaya mo talaga yan’  assured Shanlee. But of course the experience will be a lot better if you can swim well. ;) We were in Baler for 4D/3N. This was Continue Reading
