Top 4 Best and Affordable Accommodations in Moalboal, Cebu

Top 4 Best and Affordable Accommodations in Moalboal, Cebu

Over the years, Moalboal has been well-known for being a diving and snorkeling paradise, a docking point to the beautiful Pescador Island, and most especially being a habitat of beautiful sea creatures such as turtles and sardines. It's no wonder that people from different parts of the country and all over the world are flocking in to this small paradise of Cebu. And just last weekend, I was one of the fortunate group who were given the opportunity to experience what Moalboal's natural resources has to offer. And during that trip, I was ascertained that Moalboal is indeed a beautiful place that a whole day there will never be enough. You need at least one night or two to fully take advantage of its beauty. And with this, you'll have to look for nice and comfortable place to stay in without breaking the bank. That's why I decided to share to you guys the top four best and affordable accommodations in Moalboal, Cebu.

Turning Our World Upside Down at Upside Down World Cebu

Turning Our World Upside Down at Upside Down World Cebu

Have you ever imagined what it's like to live in an upside down world? Wouldn't it be fun and exciting? So when I received an invitation from Upside Down World Cebu , I honestly screamed with excited and eagerly typed YES in my email response. I have always been curious with modern art museums and being offered the opportunity, I just couldn't say no. It was one Saturday afternoon when we paid Upside Down World Cebu a visit and it was a visit we will never forget.

Exploring Bohol in Less Than 12 Hours

Exploring Bohol in Less Than 12 Hours

Who would have thought you can explore the countryside of Bohol in less than 12 hours?! Crazy, right? But we did it! And it was an overwhelming, super fun, and memorable experience! I have mentioned it in one of my previous posts that it wasn't my first time to go to Bohol . However, it was my first time to wander around Tagbilaran City and see its what it has to offer. We were able to visit seven beautiful spots and went back home to Cebu, tired yet satisfied!

Top 4 Best Ngohiong in Metro Cebu

Top 4 Best Ngohiong in Metro Cebu

Everybody knows that Cebu is a culinary haven. The Queen City is known for its famous lechon, puso (hanging rice), danggit, and chicharon. Even the more adventurous ones such as tuslob buwa, ginabot (chicharong bulaklak), and lansiao (bull testicle soup) fascinate the palates of tourists. But trust me when I say your trip to Cebu will never be complete without tasting the classic street food, Ngohiong . Pronounced as "ngo-yong", it's Cebu's version of a spring roll, typically made of singkamas, bamboo shoots, garlic, and onions. Some also mix in some ground pork and shrimps. Ngohiong mostly appeals to the students and the working class because it's readily available in eateries that are near schools and offices. Plus, it's very cheap too. For only seven pesos, you can have a piece of the tasty ngohiong. But where can you eat the best-tasting ngohiong here in Cebu? Check out my list below for my top four picks of places that serve the best-tasting ngohiong her

BeautyMNL Skincare Haul Because Outdoorsy People Need To Take Care Of Their Skin Too

BeautyMNL Skincare Haul Because Outdoorsy People Need To Take Care Of Their Skin Too

This post may seem off, since this is generally a travel and food blog, and I'm neither a beauty blogger nor a beauty expert, however I have learned how important it is to take care of the skin especially to people who often explores the outdoors. Our skin is the largest part of our body and when travelling, it gets way more exposed to pollution and most of all, the heat of the sun. That is why consistently following a skincare regimen is very essential to help maintain a healthy skin. BUT the thing is, most of us would think that having a skincare routine is an expensive vice. I somehow agree to that but nowadays, there are already a lot of stores where you can buy affordable yet effective products. We have BeautyMNL for one.

Avoid the Traffic and Rainy Season Hassle with Food Panda

Avoid the Traffic and Rainy Season Hassle with Food Panda

Have you ever had that feeling that as the weather gets colder, the more you crave for something to eat? Because I have. ALMOST ALL OF THE TIME. But now that the rainy season is here, getting to the nearest restaurant has become a struggle because of traffic and to commuters like me, it's almost impossible to hail a cab right away. And I'd rather stay at home instead. Good thing I came to know of this online food delivery platform called Food Panda ! Now I won't need to sacrifice myself in getting wet while waiting for a cab, be inconvenienced with traffic, and wait in long queues at restaurants. My food cravings are now a few clicks away! Technology indeed makes our lives easier!

Safe, Fast, and Convenient Cebu to Bohol Transfer with Fast Cat

Safe, Fast, and Convenient Cebu to Bohol Transfer with Fast Cat

The Philippines has over 7,600 islands for us to explore. However, the number one evident constraint is how we can easily and safely transport to these islands. We all need an efficient form of transportation that can take us even to the remote islands in the Visayas and Mindanao. And this is what has been at the core of Fast Cat's vision. Fast Cat has already been running 10 years ago but it was around 2016 when they finally opened a route from Cebu. Currently, they are offering the Cebu-Bohol via Tubigon route and I am personally hoping for more. I am saying this because I was able to experience Fast Cat firsthand, I loved it, and I want my fellow Cebuanos to experience safe, fast, and convenient sea transfers too.

Dine Like K-Drama Actors at Cafe Tiala

Dine Like K-Drama Actors at Cafe Tiala

"Kinain na ng sistema ng K-Drama!" Does that line sound familiar to you? Whether or not you're a K-Drama fan, I'm pretty sure you have heard this line all over various social media channels. I find it funny, actually. And I'm a fan of K-Drama myself. I love you, Healer/K2! Based on the multiple Korean TV series, variety shows, and movies I have seen, I have come to realize that I envy Koreans in two things: flawless skin and GREAT FOOD. Have you seen those actors who could eat boiling hot ramyeon?! I have always wanted to go to Korea and try authentic Korean food but since I can't afford it yet, a visit to a Cebu-based Korean cafe will suffice. At least, at Cafe Tiala , I can try Korean food without actually flying to Korea.

11-hour Trek To Mt. Kan-Irag & Why I Won't Do It Ever Again

11-hour Trek To Mt. Kan-Irag & Why I Won't Do It Ever Again

You know that I have always been a beach person. Whenever I think of vacation, I want it to be as relaxing as possible. However, as time passed, I wanted to experience new things. I wanted to try adventure-filled vacations. Which is why I went hiking for the first time at Cebu's highest peak. So when our long-time plan of conquering Mt. Kan-Irag or more famously known as Sirao Peak finally pushed through, I was excited. But little did I know that it was going to be a life-and-death experience. The others have said that the Budlaan-Sirao trail can be done in 4-6 hours but we did it in almost half a day. Eleven friggin' hours to be exact. For non-trekkers like me, it was like a suicide mission. Which is why I won't ever go to Mt. Kan-Irag taking the same trail again.

My 6 First Times at Brewer's Kitchen

My 6 First Times at Brewer's Kitchen

Brewer’s Kitchen is a new gastropub here in Cebu where you will have a taste of the beer-and-food pairing experience. Because wine and food paring is quite mainstream, yeah? Here they have ample gastronomic dishes to choose from their menu that perfectly goes well with their wide array of imported and craft beers. It was actually my first time to be in a gastropub (I guess this should have been included in the list?) , thanks again to Zomato, so here's also a list of my other "first time" experiences at Brewer's Kitchen.

Authentic Chinese Dining at A Taste of Mandarin

Authentic Chinese Dining at A Taste of Mandarin

I've been to various Chinese fast food restaurants but never have I tried dining at an authentic one. And then the opportunity came when I was invited for another Zomato foodie meetup at the first ever authentic Chinese restaurant here in the metro. A Taste of Mandarin started in 1997 which is operated by the Gaisano and they really hired a head chef from China. A Taste of Mandarin is a nice place when you're looking forward to trying authentic Chinese dishes.

Waterfront Airport Hotel and Casino Mactan and Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino in Lahug recently joined forces to give homage to the homegrown flavors of Cebuano and Filipino cuisines in a food festival called " UNO's Modern Filipino Taste: A Filipino Feast for All Senses ". And I was one of the lucky people who got invited for an amazing opportunity to try the homegrown Cebuano flavors and traditional Filipino treats that were given surprising and mouthwatering twists by the celebrated husband-and-wife culinary geniuses, Chefs Roland and Jackie Laudico. The Filipino Feast is located at UNO, the Waterfront Group of Hotels' popular international buffet and a la carte cafe and restaurant.
