I am in Cebu City for Sinulog 2019. I have been back and forth Cebu since 2005 when I started working. But believe me or not, I have never explored Cebu and even Cebu City on my own. Even if we have team outings and adventures before, it never occurred to me to even visit even the nearest tourist destinations of Cebu. Now, since I’m here for a week, right after Sinulog we try to explore the new and the old tourist destinations of Cebu and tried the half-day tour. Now, this is a Do-it-your-own itinerary. We booked a taxi as our ride for the whole day (P2,500 for 4hours; entrance fees not incl ..read more

I have lived almost half of my life in Iligan City and we have been crossing Lanao del Norte ever since I was born. My dad is from Misamis Occidental and my mom is from Misamis Oriental. We live in Marawi City and then Iligan City. Lanao is always a beauty. Before we reach MisOc we pass by Lanao del Norte municipalities and haven’t really visited and discovered secrets and beauty in each of the Municipalities. Many groups attempted to conquer Lanao del Norte and it’s municipalities because of its beauty. Good governance plays a big role. As far as I can remember since the Dimaporo’s governed ..read more

In one of our official office trips in Davao, it would be too boring if there is no detour. From official trips, detours are important to keep yourself sane. Ahahahaha okay, that’s a big alibi from me. But this is one of the nice detours I had. I don’t really drive, I am the ultimate “pasahero” of all time. I can feed you, keep you awake and do the navigation, but I don’t have the courage to drive. So yup, during one of our trip to Davao City, on our way home we checked out BEMWA Farms in Arakan Davao.  While on our way home, I was checking Google Maps to check for the location of Bemwa ..read more

Tangub City is known for their Christmas light symbols. And we have been visiting it in almost every year. This time is quite different because we have a clan with us and instead of traveling in a barge, they chose to do land trip which is really quite far and time-consuming. But none the less we enjoyed our time there. sibs, cousins, aunt, and grannie The lights display this year is different. It’s not as grandiose compared to the previous years. They have fewer participants and lesser crowd this year. These are few decent shots I got during the visit. After the fireworks di ..read more

It’s Day 2 for us here in El Nido and we are about to try the Island Hopping Tour Package C and D of Northern Hope Tours. Just to set your expectations, the travel agencies and even the people who’re trying to sell group tours on site have the same rates. That’s one of the nice things about Palawan Tourism is that they standardized the rates and services to be offered to all tourists coming in, for a healthy competition among agencies. But of course, to be chosen as an agency you must have a plus deal to get more inquiries and get more clients. So as a good deal, we chose to combin ..read more
