SkyCycle at the Chocolate Hills Adventure Park

7/24/2015
Fun, exhilarating, and shockingly basic.

Yes, bike-zipping is not that hard to do. It does not require balancing. You just simply need to pedal your way up to your destination and that's it. Your most prominent obstruction would be fear and apprehension. You must have the guts to do it, else, you will get stuck, not be able to move and enjoy the experience of biking in the air.

Stand Up Paddleboarding in Loboc, Bohol

Refreshing, fun and surprisingly easy.

These words perfectly sum up our stand up paddleboarding experience in Loboc, Bohol. I can't think of a more suitable way of describing it other than that.

The Underrated Beauty of Tumalog Falls in Oslob, Cebu

3/22/2015
tumalog falls oslob


I will just go right out and say that pictures do not give justice on how mind-blowingly beautiful Tumalog Falls in Oslob is. I admit, I underrated Tumalog Falls. I've seen pictures of it online and honestly, it wasn't that appealing. It's very ordinary. But when I finally set foot on the falls, my initial perception shifted 180 degrees and I just couldn't believe my eyes. I was completely blown away.

[SEAFARI RESORT OSLOB ] A Gem Accommodation Placed in CEBU

Seafari Resort is one gorgeous accommodation in Oslob, Cebu. It is a lodge uniquely placed on a cliff. The resort isn't top class but it has all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay in Oslob.

After a long bus ride from Cebu City, this beautiful overlooking view of the ocean welcomed us upon arrival at Seafari Resort, definitely an excellent kick off to our South Cebu trip.

Feel the rush at Crown Regency's Sky Adventure in Cebu

3/21/2015
If you want to test your non-fear of heights and enjoy the panoramic view of uptown Cebu at the same time, Crown Regency's Sky Experience Adventure is definitely one of the activities you have to do in Cebu.

Upon arriving in Cebu City from Oslob around 5pm, we quickly went to Taboan market to buy some Danggit for pasalubong and finally went to Crown Regency to try its famous Sky Adventure. It was already 6pm when we arrived at Crown Regency, quite an advantage because there was no queue for tickets that time. We didn't have to wait for our turn because there were just a few people taking the rides.

We availed the Sky Fiestaventure Package which include 1 ride (either Edge Coaster or Sky Walk Extreme) and a buffet dinner for only P750 per person. Mom considered it a good deal so we went ahead and paid for the fee.

Mom and I specifically picked the Edge Coaster ride because we wanted to see the beautiful Cebu City from the top.  But as we went up the lift to the 38th floor, I think mom began to wonder if riding the Edge Coaster was a good idea. I sensed that she was a bit scared but I still managed to convince her.

The Edge Coaster literally looked like a roller coaster moving around the rim of a building. What made it special was its tilting movement. Yes, the seats can be tilted forward up to 90 degrees making you feel like you're about to drop out of your seat. My eyes were wide open the whole time and I didn't regret it. The view of the city atop Crown Regency tower was spectacular. The edge coaster didn't move very fast, so we got to enjoy the full view of Cebu City and the full agonizing ride in slow motion. Kidding aside, it was fun! It wasn't that scary, in my opinion.

After the ride, we went to Crown Regency's Sparkz Restobar and indulged ourselves to its sumptuous International Buffet included in the package.

The Sky Adventure was our last stop in Cebu and it was definitely a quick but awesome stop. A a nice way to enjoy 360 degree view of Cebu City. So, if you're looking for activities to do within the city, The Sky Experience Adventure experience is a must.

3 Reasons to Love & Hate Alviera's [SANDBOX PAMPANGA]

2/13/2015
For leisure-goers and adrenaline junkies, one place I recommend visiting is Alviera’s Sandbox in Porac, Pampanga. While the place offers thrilling and heart-pounding activities, it may also bring you a very dizzying headache. Here are 3 reasons to make you love and hate Sandbox at the same time.

Art In Island, Cubao

1/08/2015
Unlike traditional museums where you are expected to just look around and appreciate different art pieces quietly, visitors of Art in Island are encouraged to interact and pose with all of its 3D paintings. Thus, anyone visiting the museum can be part of the Art. Sounds great, right?

Art In Island boasts quite a number of optical illusion paintings and installations, divided into various zones: Aqua Zone, Animal Zone, Masterpiece Zone, Religion Zone, Love Zone & Fantasy Zone.

We went there on a Sunday last January at an off-peak time to avoid too much crowd. Since the museum just opened recently, we were able to walk right in and roamed around the place pretty smoothly. We had an ample time exploring the area and doing creative poses. In total, we spent about 1.5 hours inside the museum. It was a definitely one fun experience.

Here are some of our photos taken at Art In Island, Cubao. In order to get the perfect optical illusion, you can take photos at the photo points marked on the floor and check the sample poses next to each art display. You can imitate the sample poses but it's better to create your own pose (you can unleash your creativity here).

What I like most about modern museums such as Art In Island is that visitors are encouraged to touch and take photos of all the displayed works. You won’t find signs like ‘No Touching’ or 'No Picture Taking' that limits the whole museum experience. So, if you are looking for an interactive museum experience around the Metro and you have 500 Php to spare (though I think the price is quite expensive for the whole experience) go ahead and throw yourself into a magical dimension of different 3D artworks at Art in Island.

My companion here said that he didn't really enjoy our visit to Art In Island when in reality he was so enthused in doing some of the poses, ironic huh? :)
