We went to Bennigan’s restaurant in The Dubai Mall one evening as we were scouting for places to eat before movie time. I first learned about this restaurant when I was browsing through our Entertainer Dubai book – this is a book filled with coupons from various hotels, restaurants, theme parks, and establishments. What better way [...]

After Kawasan Falls,  we went back to the main road in order to hail a bus. We were to find a place to eat in the town proper as it was already lunch time. We would be heading to another tourist place in Badian for an afternoon hangout session in Basdako (White Beach), Moalboal. Basdako [...]

It's been a year since we've been to the island of Bali, Indonesia. Up to now, I still haven't completed my blog series about the trip. Not sure if I'll be writing about it sometime soon though. Still, let me let me share a few pictures taken by Efraim, budding Indonesian photographer. Kuta Beach Bali, [...]

From the Sunday morning market in Mantalongon, Dalaguete, we were able to hire two motorbikes (habal-habal) to Kawasan Falls in Badian. It’s faster than having to ride back to the Dalaguete intersection and wait for a bus. We tried to haggle, but we still paid around 150 Php per person for the motorbike ride. Mantalongon to [...]

Waking up in the morning at the barangay hall in Mantalongon, Cebu, we hurriedly took our turns in the bathroom to fix ourselves. Even if I was a little tired from the trek to Osmena Peak, I still had a good night's sleep especially when I didn't have to pay much (50 Php) for a sleeping [...]

It was already cold to be standing on top of the Osmena Peak in Cebu. Waiting for the sun to set became a little uncomfortable because the temperature became cooler. Good thing I brought a jacket. It was also great that we still had some leftover bread so we could fill our stomachs with food [...]

We arrived at the Mantalongon Market and asked the townsfolk for directions to Osmena Peak in Cebu. The locals advised to go straight and just turn left on the first intersection. Afterwards, they said we only needed to follow the path to get to the destination. We didn't have a difficult time understanding the instructions [...]

When you're planning a cruise holiday, there are so many things to take into consideration. Perhaps the most important is destination, and which soul-stirring places you'd like to tick off your must-see list. Do you want to explore the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, the Nordic Fjords or the Iberian Sea? Beyond that, which cities have you [...]

Friday night, I was going over my duties in the office when I received a message from one of my travel buddies about going to Osmeña Peak the morning after. Prior to the climb, we were to drop by the municipality of Boljoon in South Cebu. Cebu Osmeña Peak: Stopover at Boljoon November 11, 2011 [...]

One of the destinations in Europe that I am hoping to visit the soonest would be Santorini in Greece. Knowing that I'm now based in the Middle East, more options have come up for me to visit nearer places. A friend also mentioned that it's easier to apply for tourist visas. Back in my home [...]

I boarded an Emirates Airlines Boeing 777 plane on my way to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was my first time to ride a plane of that size. I became excited at the thought of riding a huge aircraft even if it meant spending 8 hours in the flight. My Emirates Boeing 777 Experience Emirates [...]

Now that summer has arrived, it is time to fill those long days. If you are looking for something to do, try something new. Stop spending your days doing the same thing with the same people. The summer is filled with festivals in major cities around the world. Certainly, there is one in a city [...]

Whoa, never thought I wouldn't be blogging for this long. It's been awhile since I last updated this blogsite. I also haven't been able to go online as much. My normal day to day Facebook activity has been totally lessened. This is a good thing because it made me realize that I don't need to [...]

During my 9-month Southeast Asia backpacking adventure, I was able to live in a five-star luxury resort in Terengganu, Malaysia. This was one of the best experiences I had because I lived very comfortably.
