Bohol + Cebu (2014): Eat and Walk Around Cebu

After going around Cebu City on foot the previous day, we were just tired that we woke up practically just to checkout of our hotel.  And on our last day in Cebu City, we weren’t done walking around and eating!  Here’s our last day in Cebu City.  It was a Tuesday.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): A Glimpse of Sinulog

The low pressure area prevailing over the Visayas and Mindanao region had made the seas more wavy than the usual making our trip from Tagbilaran to Cebu much, much longer.  The rains had not stopped either, but our spirits weren’t dampen.

Bohol + Cebu (2014): The Churches of Bohol

Every year for the past four years I’ve been constantly going to Cebu to start my year with Cebu City Marathon (CCM).  This year was no different, except that the places I love had changed due to the strong earthquake that rocked the region last year.  With that, my itinerary had also changed: I decided…

Highlights of 2013

2013 is one interesting but very challenging year for me.  I’ve had lots of ups and downs, but looking back I can’t say that I have any regrets.  And if I had to pick just 10 as highlights of my year, this list would be it.  In no particular order, they are:

Top Five Most Recommended Races in the Philippines

The Philippines, particularly Metro Manila, is just a haven for races as there’s always at least one practically every weekend.  But amongst all of these races, there are some that stood out, and here are five that I highly recommend. #5: Corregidor Marathon A race set on the historic island fortress of Corregidor, Corregidor Marathon…

Bohol + Cebu Quickie: Roaming Around Cebu City

Cebu City was the real destination for this trip so early in the year, and as a runner Cebu City Marathon was naturally the expected reason, but this time it is not.  The real reason behind this trip: to go to Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño to give thanks for all the blessings.

Bohol + Cebu Quickie

I was supposed to start the year with Cebu City Marathon, but it was just my luck that I wasn’t able to register in time.  But since my flight and accommodations are already set in place, I was still good to go!

2012: Last Hurrah

2012 had been one of the most “interesting” years of my adult life but unfortunately running took a back seat for me this year in terms of mileage.  That doesn’t mean though that there isn’t much to share about this year!  Here are ten (10) of my favorite posts for the year:

Marathons: More Fun in the Philippines

Running had become the “it” sport in urban centers in the Philippines these past few years with races achieving “world-class” levels, and if I were to pick three amongst the best in the country, the list would look something like this…

Cebu Lechon Chronicles: Tune Hotels (Review)

One of the newest hotel chains in the Philippines today is Tune Hotels, and unlike other hotels, you only pay for what you need so you can really keep your cost to a minimum.  Here are my thoughts.

Cebu Lechon Chronicles: Islands Stay Hotels (Review)

If you’ve been travelling around the Philippines you may have noticed those Islands Souvenirs shops selling souvenir tees so I wasn’t that surprised when the words Islands Stay Hotels came up.  I had the chance to stay for a night in their Cebu City branch, and here are my thoughts.

Cebu Lechon Chronicles: Historic Tour

For my last day in Cebu it was a must for me to revisit the sites I wasn’t able to visit the last time I was here, and the first one on top of my head was of the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.  Since the location is in the vicinity of historic sites, a…
