Sirao Peak, The Easy Way

Spontaneity at its best. Original plan was to visit the Sirao garden and the Temple of Leah, but since we were already in Sirao, we thought, we might as well climb the peak! You see, I’ve never trekked before. My trek resumé only has one entry and that’s my 5-year stay at the University of San Carlos. If you have been, you’ll know that some buildings are way up the hills & mountains. I remember catching a 4:30 class uphill after…

Celosia Argentea in Sirao Farm

I had a two-day blank canvas waiting to be painted on, thanks to holidays and freedom. Last year, I wanted this to be the weekend that I go out of the country, alone. That didn’t happen for reasons happening next month. So I settled down with barangay Sirao and its celosias and cool breeze. Not bad at all! Blog posts and selfies went viral, including that one disheartening post showing people leaving trash and consequently, ruining the flowers. I mean,…

Post Cards from Kalanggaman

Let’s start 2016 with my last getaway of 2015. I think everyone heard of Kalanggaman Island late 2014, early 2015. I remember having a conversation with my new officemates back then to have a trip there, but alas, that didn’t happen. Then the hype hit the social media like crazy during Summer of 2015, there wasn’t a weekend that multiple Facebook friends of mine didn’t upload photos from Kalanggaman. It was beautiful but I thought it would be too crowded…

Oslob, Cebu: Dancing with the Gentle Giants

Hello everybody! Quite the hiatus I went to, huh? I have no other excuses but real life happened to me. A lot of changes will be happening in the next few months and I hope I won’t leave y’all behind. I’m sure I won’t. Just a heads up, I suppose, that I might go on and off every now and then. Hopefully, I’ll settle down soon. Anyways. Where were we? I’ve blogged about going on top of Cebu and having…

The Tops of Cebu

The Tops (or Tops Lookout or Tops Busay) is one of the most famous tourist spots in Cebu. It has existed since I’ve gained consciousness of my humanness and I’ve actually never been, until April this year when both Paul and I went. Going to the Tops is no easy feat. Since it’s rather high up in the mountain, the easiest is obviously through your own car (whether you rent one or own one). But for us peasants, it’s either…

Adrenaline Fix at KartZone and Rainforest Park

Back in April, Paul and I decided to go karting. If you haven’t heard of karting, it’s basically the stepping stone to your Grand Prix dreams. It’s simple although you need to have a basic sense in driving to enjoy it and to keep yourself and others from danger. Kartzone is one of, if not the only, kart racing center in Cebu. You can rent karts for Php 400.00 for 8 laps which can either be a single-seater or a double-seater.…
