Night Trek to Sirao Peak in Kan-Irag Cebu

We had another chance to go back to Sirao Peak in Kan-Irag Cebu. Before this, we did a day trek to the mountain. This time, we trekked in the night.

Sunrise at Sirao Peak
We started at around 8PM going to Budlaan from Talamban.

All smiles and excited

It took us  4 hours to climb the peak. We got to the summit around 12MN.

Right after we embarked from Budlaan
Clear trail

Descending carefully

A few steep trail

We reached the summit at 12MN
We pitched our tents, had some snacks and meals. Then called it a night. In the morning, we enjoyed the beautiful city view, the fresh air and the sunrise.

We reached the lake at around 12 NN. Kinda late because we stopped by a store to buy some refreshments.

Some close-up shot
We had our lunch near the lake at around 12 NN. After that we went straight to Kabang river and then trailed back to Budlaan. Unfortunately, I do not have shots for the river and the falls because the camera battery went dead. :)

We got to the Sunny Hills Talamban at 5PM. Enjoyed dinner and went home.

Yours truly enjoying the trek (Thanks to Mark for this pic)

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.

On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything. 
Usually, with Western Union, I can get the money once they sent the email with the MTCN code. But with the wire transfer, the only thing I can do is wait. One full day after I received the…

Climbing Osmena Peak Traverse to Kawasan Falls in Cebu

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.


So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…
