By on September 4, 2016
Trust me when I say that the McDonald's Happy Meal toys are quite adorable this time. It's not hard to imagine then how they could have a riotous adventure in the film.

There’s always Room for Desserts at SM Seaside Cebu

By on August 13, 2016
The biggest draw perhaps at Room for Desserts is their very Instagrammable Fairy Floss. A wreath of cotton candy rests around a cup or cone of soft-serve ice cream. This is then adorned with toppings of your choice - cookies, cereals, candies, chocolate or a combination of these.

Better value for money buffet at Grand Majestic

By on August 11, 2016
Despite the recent entry of big-name brands in Cebu, Grand Majestic still is among the very few remaining better-valued buffet restaurants in the city. Although their prices (Php 550 for lunch and Php 650 for dinner) have increased a little bit since the last time I visited here, the quality of the food has thankfully not changed.

McDonald’s non-app Angry Birds toys

By on June 8, 2016
I wanted to watch The Angry Birds Movie when it was still shown in cinemas here in Cebu. This was largely fueled by my nostalgia for the wildly successful mobile game and also some bit of curiosity as to how the film creators created a story out of it.

Chasing Waterfalls in Iligan City

By on May 29, 2016
I once did a blog a collaboration with Lisa Mirasol of Pinaytravelista.com where we shared various travel tips about Iligan, a highly-urbanized city in Southern Philippines. Little did I know that a few months after I published that entry, I was fortunate enough to return to my beloved birthplace to participate in the Waterfalling Adventure Tour 3.0, a unique weekender organized by the Iligan Bloggers Society.

#FoodcourtFinds – Belly Buster at SM Seaside Cebu

By on May 28, 2016
Each Belly Buster slice by the way was packed with flavor but not to the point that the spices overpowered the meat. The skin was also roasted to a delightful crisp. Most of all, it was not as greasy compared to that of their more established competitor.
