#LoserBoys Christmas Party at Rendezvous Beach Resort in Mactan Cebu

I belong to a special group called #LoserBoys. It is an all-male group and definitely not a boy band. The group is literally what the name suggests, loser boys. Loser in a sense that when the group was created, some of us were single, some heartbroken and most have girlfriends (future wives) working abroad and in some other places in the country. That is, really loser when it comes to our love lives. Haha.

Everytime I get to have a holiday break, I always see to it that I spend it with the things I love. One of these things is going to the beaches.

Every Plucked String is a Melody - A Harpist in Cebu

One of the least played stringed instruments in the Philippines is the harp. Finding a harpist is like finding a pearl in the ocean. And, I was able to find that kind of pearl a couple of days back.

I was at Parkmall in Cebu looking for something to buy. As I was walking down the center aisle of the place, I heard a sweet smooth sound coming from a harp.

I never thought twice to capture every melody.


Sorry about the audio. It was captured using a cellphone. :)
As soon as the harpist ended his set, I approached him and asked for his name. He is Ronnie CustaƱos. He is not a schooled musician and learned every note from his father. He has been playing the instrument for over 18 years.

I was very glad to have met with such brilliant talent.

Unforgettable Overnight Stay at Karancho Beach Resort in Mactan Cebu

I had the chance to go back to Karancho beach resort in Mactan island of Cebu. This was the place where I had my first try of kayaking. That was 3 years ago and a lot have changed.

Our group went on an overnight stay just to enjoy a holiday break. We arrived at the resort at around 6 in the evening. Just the right time for the overnight rates to kick in.

The entrance fee was P60 each person and the cottage was P800. This is just good for 6PM to 6AM use. The cottage was just ok in terms of the size and there was only one outlet and only good for the lights. I had to say one outlet because we had a problem with it. We brought a laptop, a modem and a set of speakers. Too bad we were not able to use any one of them.

Anyway, time to prepare our dishes for the night. We brought along fish and pork to grill. We had to pay P50 for using the grill area. Of course we had other food like seaweeds (guso) and bam-i. We bought rice from outside. Good thing there is no drinks and and food corkage.

Cebu City to Tingko Beach in Alcoy - My Motorcycle Diary

My friends and I decided to have a trip somewhere in southern Cebu. Most of our motorcycles are new so it was the best time to do our break in. We have spotted Alcoy as our end-point for the trip. But we had no idea about the exact place to stop and rest until we reached the place.

We have covered approximately 90 kilometers from Cebu City to Alcoy. It was good enough to empty out my 3.5 liters of full tank gasoline. We started the trip at around 9 AM and arrived in Alcoy at about 12NN.

As soon as we hit Alcoy, we have spotted Tingko beach resort and decided to stop, rest and enjoy the night there. There was no entrance fee but the small cottage costs around 50 pesos. It was actually cheaper than we expected.




We rented a room worth 1000 pesos for overnight stay. It was large enough for all of us to occupy the space. There were 6 of us in the trip.

The next day, we still had fun swimming in the beach. We checked out at 12 NN and we headed home tired but fulfilled and overjoyed.
