Bohol’s Momo Beach House, The Paradise Less Traveled

I do not like sea travel. I, who has lived on an island for 2 decades, who would get out of the sea last and unwillingly during beach trips, get too anxious when I have to travel by sea. My inability to swim, the odd smell of boat gasoline and how I’d feel mildly claustrophobic are primary culprits. When I first said yes to my first ever blog trip out of Cebu, I was beyond ecstatic and grateful. Finally! My…

Staycation in the Sky at The Mactan Newtown

Labor long weekend was fast approaching and I was itching to have a mini-vacation for fear of missing out on summer completely, yet again. I’m not big on road trips (so much anxiety build up) or ship rides (I cannot swim, for the life of me, if things go south, also, ship gasoline smells so bad, don’t you think?), we do not have trains and plane tickets are too expensive for an overnight vacation. Thankfully, millennials invented (ha!) staycations, so I thought,…

Playing Around Asia’s Biggest Inflatable Playground

Summer outings are in season, and we just had ours, yesterday! Now that I remember, I still owe you last year’s in Bellevue, Bohol. But hey, here’s a quick photo-diary of my weekend. Take off!

The Must-Visits of Bohol, All in One Day

Back in April this year, I got to visit Bohol again. I’ve luckily been a few times and it’s a place you don’t get enough of. I think, Bohol is one of the quick getaways Cebuanos choose, if they aren’t going up north or down south for some good beach escapades. Floating Restaurant and Ati Tribe The restaurant is ‘floating’ because you get to eat while cruising through the Loboc River. How clean and green the river is, is purely amazing.…

A Day at Crimson Resort and Spa, Mactan

After having lunch at Saffron Café as part of our day rate package, we head outside. We were greeted by the raging heat, thanks to Mr. Sunshine, himself. It felt like the peak of summer happened that day. It was beautiful, nevertheless. The sand was golden, flowers were as saturated and as brightly hued as it can be, and the sea was the perfect blue. It took all my might not to just jump in the water then and there as…

Saffron Café at Crimson Resort and Spa, Mactan

A few Sundays ago, I spent a day at Crimson Resort and Spa in Mactan. This view welcomes you to Crimson. Being an island girl means spontaneous beach trips and a 5-minute drive to the shore. The thing is, we normally don’t go for the posh resorts since we know the hidden gems or those with good money:quality ratio. Recently though, we’ve been hanging out in Shangri-La and have not broken up with them just yet. We wanted something new,…
