The Cebuano market is hard to please. I’ve heard this often when I was working on getting my Business Management degree from UP Cebu. And it seems to be true especially last weekend. “Value for money” is a driving force especially among Cebuano buyers. Meaning the “1 piso” you shell out should really equal to [...]
There are many good restaurants in Cebu, and today being it Titus birthday we decided to check out a restaurant that I’ve been to 10 plus years ago, and one he wants to dine at because I’ve told him it is not crowded as most of the good restaurants in Cebu are.
This restaurant is one of those best kept ‘secret’ restos of Cebu – 10 Dove Street. A specialty restaurant without an official signage, you can find this restaurant in yes 10 dove st. inside Sto Nino Village in Banilad, Cebu City, a bit out-of-the-way from the ‘it’ places.
I’ve promised in one of my earlier posts, Tips in Navigating Cebu Jeepneys, that I will be updating the route codes as well as the roads these jeepneys will pass. Unfortunately, it’s so big a task to complete with my limited time, so I will just update what I think is handier especially to tourists [...]
We came for the white sands and pristine beaches of Camotes Island, and we got them and more! Our first day was rocked with huge waves and an unexpected intense adventure on the high seas . On our second day in Mangodlong Rock Resort , Mr Sun made up for the previous days of no swimming because of rough waves! Hurray! We woke up early, ate our silog breakfast at P80 per plate with free coffee. And then it was play time on the sand and beach!
Camotes is simply an awesome beach travel destination and …
Camotes Island is home to white sand beaches and great resorts. Mangodlong Rock Resort together with its sister resort Santiago Bay Garden and Resort are two of Camotes most popular beach resorts. We decided to stay in Mangodlong because we have seen pictures of it and it looks awesome! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that its more affordable than Santiago.
So after our adventure in the high seas of Camotes we arrived in Mangodlong! Unfortunately the huge waves have not normalized, in fact it looks like it’s becoming stronger. Swimming was out of the question for us so
Hey guys! There’s more to Cebu than danggit, lechon, otap & dried mango when it comes to pasalubong. Unknown to many, Cebu offers a whole lot more yummy local delicacies like masareal, shakoy, salvaro, tagaktak and bibingka from mandaue and chicharon from carcar. Last Sunday titus & i decided to go to Mandaue City near [...]
One 0f the most visited historical attraction in the province of Cebu is the Lapu-Lapu Monument and Magellan’s Shrine located in Punta Engano, Mactan Island. Travel time to reach this landmark is approximately 15 minutes from the Mactan International Airport, so it’s a good first stop for your visit if you are not too tired [...]
I have been meaning to write about the major tourist’s attractions that Cebu City offers and finally I am doing something about it. I will try to be as specific as I can and hopefully as complete as I can make it so this post can be of used to you reader, especially first time visitors to Cebu ^_^
I have acted as an unofficial tour guide on various instances over the years for friends and colleagues who came over, and experienced taught me that the following are the usual mainstay in a tourists’ Cebu City Day Tour Itinerary:

If there is something that I am proud of my city government i.e. Lapu-Lapu City (LLC) is that our general services department (GSD) is really serious about cleaning the city especially along the national highway as compared to other Metro Cebu cities. Every morning I can see a number of ladies in their green sweatshirts [...]
