In celebration of our anniversary, Sugarplum and I planned to stay at Papa Kit’s but due to some unforeseen event it didn’t push through, you can read about it here. On the brighter side, we were transferred to another resort that they owned and upgraded our accommodation to Executive. We were transferred to Estaca Bay Gardens Conference Resort.
Travel from Papa Kit’s to Estaca Bay is just a 12-minute ride. Here’s a map from Papa Kit’s to Estaca Bay.
May is a very special month for me and Sugarplum because it’s our anniversary month. Hooray! On our first anniversary, we visited Tagaytay; on the second one, we explored the South of Cebu and meet the gentle giant of the sea. This year, we want to explore Papa Kit’s Marina and Fishing Lagoon. The place can offer a lot of activities: zipline, ATV, horseback riding, jungle adventure and fishing! You can also stay there overnight, their rooms are facing Silot Bay and I would have loved to see some magnificent sunrise or sunset, if we were really able to push through with our plans.
Our original plan was to book a room in Papa Kit’s and enjoy all the activities that the place can offer. According to their website, check-in is at 2PM and check-out is at 12 noon the next day. I read somewhere that it’s best to do all your activities during early morning or late afternoon, to do away with sunburn or too much heat. Staying overnight there is a really good idea, right? We had a not so good experience using their online booking thru Booking.com. There was no online payment but we received a confirmation about our reservation to Papa Kit’s. We were a little relieved because the first week of May is a long weekend and a peak season. Little did we know that our luck is about to be tested, read that as patience. (more…)
Good food. Good life. Of course!
I’ve always loved food, aside from the fact that it’s what my body needs, it’s also a good way to shoo away the bad vibes or the stress of the day. Who doesn’t love good food when you’re a little bit tired about what’s going on in your life? Okay, I’m a little bit dramatic here. Sorry about that. If you’re looking for a place to grab a mouth watering back ribs or just enjoy the best shrimp barbecue in Cebu then head on to Casa Verde, an American style casual dining in Cebu.
Summer is already here and in my country we only have two seasons: hot and hotter. Definitely, it’s the hotter season now and it’s high time for some dip in the pool. Well, here’s a post that I’ve repackaged about our Danao Coco Palm Adventure last year.
One of the most exciting adventure one can experience is the one that’s roughly planned or an impromptu adventure. Last February 22, 2014 we took an impromptu adventure to the North of Cebu, specifically to Danao Coco Palms Resort. It was the birthday of my cousin, Kevin and at the same time the continuance of his apprenticeship in a Cargo ship (he’s a seaman and he needs to go to their ship and meet the Captain). We’re also planning a vacation sometime this March but Jill(one of my friends) can’t go with us since she will be assigned to Alabang by March. To push through the vacation, though it was not planned, we decided to go to Danao. (more…)
When the sweet tooth craving kicks in, where does your heart takes you? As for me, I found myself entering the Country Basket Pastries and more… in Lahug, Cebu City. Kidding aside, I read some blogs about it and was curious if their pastries do taste good and if the place is cute enough just like what I’ve seen in the photos posted online.
Gladly we, Sugarplum and I, was able to go there when my sweet tooth craving kicks in. Here’s what greeted us when we enter their cute shop.
A wonderful display of cakes, cookies and more on their little counter.
I’ve been meaning to write about this restaurant after the first time that we ate there but it seems the universe is conspiring against it. Every time I would try to write about it the lazy bone would kick in or my artistic juices would just run dry(if I have some of it) and so to prove to myself that I can write if I really want to, here I am again, trying my very best to complete this draft after around two months after it sat in the drafts section.
