Sugbo Summer :)

Going to the beach is one of the typical activities Filipinos do, because why not? We’re blessed with beautiful beaches.

After almost a year of living in Cebu, I finally got the chance to travel South, I’ve only traveled to Northern part of Cebu for the past months. First stop was Moalboal, we went to take a dip in the super White Beach and watched the sunset at Panagsama. It was a quick day tour (actually half day tour) my friend and I had, we weren’t able to do some activities (island hopping and swimming with the sardines). We went back to the city right away and was ready for an adventure that was about to happen!

look at how crystal-clear it is!

bonus! Oppas in their diving suits ^.^

 We availed a package at Mactan for Parasailing where other activities were also included (banana boat, jetski, snorkeling, kayak, etc) (you can check Serena Water Sports or contact them at 0917-321-0077)

The Parasailing was the best! You get to see Mactan Island at 150ft, it’s never the same when you’re in an airplane. It was magnificent and you must try it!

hello world!!!

Holy Week came and we went up north to my favorite place in Cebu, Bantayan Island! I promised this Island that I’ll be back and so I did. I realized that I have to be rich so I can buy a place in this stunning island.

During that time, Bantayan was filled with people since they were celebrating their annual feast. Though it was packed with people from all over the country and even foreigners, still I couldn’t feel but relaxed with its lovely beach and locals.

Imagine waking up to this scenery.
long walks for exercise

Few weeks after my last trip, we headed South again to do canyoneering. Whoa! I. Never. Thought. I. Could. Do. This.

Thank you to my friends and our tour guides for being so patient with me.


This wasn’t planned as went to Liloan for a baptism, but hey we were already in the area so why not check this place even though we were in our formal attire?



Obviously I’m writing all of these in a cramming manner, life has been so busy and I’m about to start a new chapter in my life- Graduate Studies. My classes will start next week and I have no idea what to expect and why I’m doing this.

I know it’s not only me who wants to leave everything behind and just go travel-because we all think that life is better if we just go travel and not have jobs and be a real adult. But reality speaking, we don’t have that courage to do that due to many excuses and legit reasons. So while we’re at it, travel a little and discover yourself in different places. And if it really must be your calling, then go for it.




SMILE even when you’re scared

Didn’t know I was being filmed, I just smiled because I have to. And I want to.

We were on our way to do canyoneering and I was bloody scared. Too scared because I don’t trust myself that I can do it. It probably doesn’t show on the photo but oh my gosh, God knows how I was feeling then. Anyway, I survived and it was one of the best experiences I had. I’m going to have another post about it. For now, let me just share this photo (this one’s a special one)



Lights in the Sky

What are your thoughts while watching a fireworks display?

So it was Friday and that only means one thing for us- Sugbo Mercado night. It is a weekend night market located near our office. We just love going there and treat ourselves after a week of interviews. Last night, Garden Bloc was packed with people, there was also another event which was the biketoberfest and children were around the area for Halloween activities. Anyway, so while going back to our table everyone stopped for few minutes and watched the fireworks display for the opening of biketoberfest. Thoughts? hmm. beautiful! long weekend! happiness! love! new beginnings! this person! my phone I have to take a picture of this.

Cheers to the long weekend! IMG_20161028_200030.jpg




from Bantayan Island with love :)

A few weeks ago, we traveled all the way up to the northern part of Cebu. Originally, our plan was to visit Maldives of the Philippines then it was changed to Apo Island, due to “we can’t control things” from 9 folks down to 6, we went to South Bus Terminal and rode the bus headed to Bantayan Island.

With the 4-day weekend, it was a total crap to just stay indoors and to miss the beach.

Bantayan Island is 5-6 hours away from the city of Cebu, almost 4-5 hours of bus ride and an hour ferry ride. No matter how I hate bus rides, I know it will be always worth it.

This what welcomed us when we arrived; a very fine white sand and calm beach.


Crystal-clear what up!!

This was at Virgin Island


Hello there buddy!

People in Bantayan island- no matter what age ride a bike. I am such a loser! I don’t know how to bike (to be defensive, I used to know actually). You can still hitch a ride or yes, walk!

Aside from riding a bike, you can also do snorkeling. Which we also did despite the fact that I also don’t know how to swim. Yes perfect!

We stayed in a cheap resort literally by the beach, where in we got to camp out at night.

By far, the best beach I have set foot, I will definitely go back to Bantayan Island 🙂

See you again Bantayan 🙂
