Coffee Prince Cebu

Coffee Prince Cebu officially opens today, August 17! :D

I was invited to their soft opening yesterday, and I was happy to oblige! Korean-inspired cafes are fast growing in Cebu and though I’ve only been to a few, I know they all have one thing in common: cute interiors!

The place is still sort of bare (well, given that it’s newly opened) compared to other Korean-inspired cafes with all their hanging photo prints, scattered post-its, and giant stuffed toys (Coffee Prince Cebu has this), but they have the love locks!

I’m pretty sure this will fill up quickly. But the cafe keeps the keys, so I guess everyone will have a space in his/her own time. ;)

Canyoning in Badian, Cebu

Last June 21-22, my friends and I (a total of 16 persons) went on a new kind of adventure which we first knew about through Drew Arellano’s video on YouTubecanyoning or canyoneering.

Canyoning (known as canyoneering in the U.S.) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rappelling), and/or swimming. -Wikipedia

But before that, let me tell you about the basic information. Most of us are from the city, so we had to meet up at South Bus Terminal at 5:30am before going to Badian (we departed at around 6am). Badian is a town in the southwestern part of Cebu and is 3 hours away from Cebu City.

javakulaws summer outing

JavaKulaws Summer Outing in Medellin, Cebu

It was a really hot summer weekend, and I was glad that our summer outing / teambuilding activity finally pushed through!

Medellin is a 3-hour ride from Cebu City. We didn’t take the bus since we rented a van, but the travel time is pretty much the same. We lodged at Tapol Beach Resort but on our first day, we went to FUNtastic Island in Gibitngil Island via a 30-minute pump boat ride from the mainland. The water was super clear that all you’d want to do is swim/float all day, but it was also saltier than what we’re used to.

Shiratani Beach Resort and Inambakan Falls in Ginatilan

Last-last Saturday (June 15) was my & Mumu’s 2nd anniversary together but instead of celebrating it alone with each other, we had an outing with our friends! :D

We met up at the South Bus Terminal at around 8:30am, got on a bus, and departed at 9:00am. It was unusual that I didn’t sleep through the whole trip. I only did when we were farther south. After 4 hours of travel worth P162.00/head, we arrived in the town of Ginatilan and checked in at Shiratani Beach Resort. There were 8 of us but we just decided to get a room good for 4 persons at P1,200.00.

Since it was already around 1:00pm, we were hungry as hell, so we went to the town market on a tricycle (P5.00/head) and had lunch at one of the carinderias there. We then shopped afterwards for some food for our next 3 meals.
