Get Intimate with the Queen City Of the South

Payag Payag in the City


Earlier this week, my friends and I decided to check out the newest barbecue joint in Cebu. When we went there, the resto was still getting ready for its big opening (Friday, August 22nd.) But just the same, the staff entertained us when we asked for food. Cool points! Hehe. So, anyway, the restaurant is called Payag Payag which means ‘little huts.’ Or more literally, ‘hut hut.’ Check out the photos below to find out why you seriously need to give this place a visit!

MCPB at CITE 2014


Last Friday, I was able to drop by Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino in Lahug for the 2014 Cebu International Travel Expo. The CITE is an annual event which features the trends and the current movers and shakers in travel and tourism. The CITE 2014 is the first show to open the 2014 International Travel Expo Series.

A Journey of Firsts


Last June 6th, I received a pretty unusual email. I admit, I’m quite used to receiving unusual emails. But this one was a little different. The email said that I was invited to cover a big event. How big, exactly? Let’s just say the keywords Cebu Pacific and Department of Tourism are plastered all over it. That big.

So, wait a minute. I got an email from a company that was in partnership with the Department of Tourism and Cebu Pacific. Pretty unusual, right? I mean, being invited to a local event – that I can digest. But getting invited to an event happening outside Cebu – definitely sketchy. Especially since my blog is focused mainly on the local scene. But then again, I have Hanging Rice so maybe they took that into consideration. I’m not sure.

I only realized that this was indeed a serious offer when I finally received a copy of my ticket and the itinerary. So, three days and two nights in Caraga, food and accommodations covered, a DOT-guided tour of the region’s best spots, and a guaranteed seat on Cebu Pacific’s Tandag-Cebu maiden flight. I’ve never had a positive space ticket before! Ever! This right here is a full-scale press trip, yo! I can’t handle this!

From one paradise to another. I’m definitely not complaining.

The Search for Lanipao


Weeks ago, my cousin told me about her trip to Lanipao and she said that I should definitely check it out. Anyways, long story short, I decided to go ahead and investigate. I know Guadalupe is such a big barangay but with the instruction to “just follow that road behind the Guadalupe Church until you reach Sapangdaku,” I thought that it would be easy as a pie. Well, let’s just say that I was wrong. And I also must admit that if I hadn’t stopped to ask for directions, I wouldn’t be able to locate it. Haha. Well, I say finding what you’re looking for on your first attempt is no fun at all. Come on! Seriously, where’s your sense of adventure?

Am I there yet? I seriously don’t know.

Under The Bridge


Today, I was able to make a quick stop at the park under the Cansaga Bay Bridge. The last time that I dropped by, the place was barren and just basically lifeless. Now, the place looks so much better. Kudos to the local government of Consolacion for making sure locals in the area can have a safe and fun place to enjoy.

The Cansaga Bay Bridge connects Mandaue City and the town of Consolacion. Although not exactly a shortcut, the route which crosses Cansaga Bay helps ease the usually heavy traffic at the North National Road. It also helps bring new developments to areas far from where the usual action takes place.
