More than the color of its water, Kawasan’s other charm is its rustic appeal.

Perhaps it’s the water that draws local and foreign tourists alike to this charming destination in Cebu.

There is actually other waterfalls to visit in the area, and they are located just above the famous Kawasan Waterfall. These waterfalls are a bit smaller, but they still have beautiful turquoise waters.DSC02155

BREAKING RECORD: 5 places in 1 day

Hurray!

After what seemed to be a long and dreadful semester of being a 3rd year medical student, I have finally had the chance to exercise thy freedom of excitement! Yes! No more books to read! No more sleepless nights! No more research papers! No more 10 hour duties with toxic patients! No more alarm clocks!

Since it was my post birthday, my bestfriend, Eviejoy, decided to take me out on a date. Wohoo, another B and B moment. It was like a you-deserve-a-break and catching up date and was partly a treat for my birthday even though she already drowned me with birthday surprises.

On our way to our destination, it was a nostalgic feeling to be back in Gaas and experience the rollercoaster ride of twist and turns, of direct assaults and downhills once again. With Cebu’s scorching weather, I really missed the cool wind carressing my cheeks and the white fogs blocking the road. When I breathe in, it’s like I am breathing in the laughter, thoughts, memories,  joys and moments I shared with this lass a few years back!

First stop: Buwakan ni Alejandra

After Sirao Flower Garden, the newest tourist destination that Cebuanos is crazy about is Buwakan ni Alejandra.

Upon entering the garden, you will see the colorful varieties of different types of flowers. Too bad we can’t afford to have a drone to really let you see the whole garden but it’s a beautiful sight I tell you!

By just looking at it, it has really been carefully planned and designed. I love that the owner made sure to create foot paths in the garden. This way, you can’t accidentally step on the plants and flowers.

Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”

And, the good thing about these flowers is that they bloom all year round so everyone can visit the place anytime in its full glory. I’d give this place a thumbs up! A must visit especially to those who love flowers and plants! Continue reading

Plantation Bay, Cebu

Say Goodbye to Books and hello DecemBREAK! After a few months of stressful days, I am happy to announce that it is already our semester break. The amount of caffeine overload and sleepless nights were intense the past Bimonthlies but I’m thankful I was able to endure the stress and pressure. Hello December! My favorite month (well, next to my birth month); needless to say it’s Christmas time. A time where all emotions are elated and joyous festivity are happening all month round. Indeed, the happiest month for me because I have ample of time to rest and enjoy the Christmas season with family and friends.

Trip to Gaas, Balamban!

6 months ago, my friends and I decided to embark on an adventure that was pretty out of plan. We decided to visit a special place called Gaas, Balamban. What I thought was just a typical hangout turned out to be one of the most memorable moments in my life as a young adult. It was surely an adventure worth remembering. It was exceptional, not only for the reason that I was with friends, but it was a day with many firsts- my first visit to Gaas and my first time to be able to travel a long distance ride on a motorbike.

We left the city during the night where the streets were busy, not only the streets but also the sidewalks, people walked from place to place, running for errands and if there’s one thing that I love with busy streets is the sound of music everywhere; From the stores down to the honks of different vehicles in this never-ending traffic of Cebu.

 We travelled on a convoy of motorbikes and I thought it was rad, well, with our huge jackets and hoods. Haha. As we speed down the road, I felt the wind in my face. I smelled the crisp, evening air. There’s nothing like the rush of energy during that ride and darn, the coolness of the wind was a very good feeling to my skin. Passing through the tree lined section of the road, I felt the 2 degree drop, and though it was dark and pitch black, I still felt the combination of fear, exhilaration, relaxation, and pleasure.

 Roadtrips bring you to beautiful places, like Canada for instance! Hahahaha

After an hour of travel, I felt a drop of rain on my head and it was about time when the rain came pouring when we arrived at our place. Immediately, we set out the table and placed all the foods so we could start rocking the night out. Haha! After a while, the rain transitioned from drizzle to heavy rain. However, the rain didn’t stop us from having fun. We played, talked, and laughed all night with about anything, drank coffee to keep us warm, and stayed up past midnight ‘til we didn’t notice it was already 5 o’clock in the morning. And then we slept early in the morning to boost our alertness and energy level for our activity right after.

 After a few hours, I woke up with a renounced excitement to look at what supposed to be a beautiful morning view was a fog that was so dense that nothing could be seen a few yards ahead. Instead of planning to go back to the city, we were stucked inside the house ’cause it was unsafe to go out. We didn’t know that there was a big storm coming to town so we decided to stay for another day until the fog clears out and the rain stops.
