Unexpected Stay in Estaca Bay Gardens Conference Resort

Redhead and I got invited by friends to enjoy time in a beach. The plan was to go to Coco Palms Beach Resort in Danao for an overnight stay but due to unexpected circumstance, we ended up in Estaca Bay Gardens Conference Resort located in the Municipality of Compostela, Cebu. Such a long name for a beach! It was a great night stay with friends.

The resort is formerly known as Stakili Beach Resort. I have been to the place 3 times already but never got the chance to stay overnight. The beach is good for a quick family getaway in the day. But I never expected it to be more lively in the night. Even at 12 in the midnight people were still coming in the resort.

Still a lot of people even when its midnight
All throughout the night, there was the deafening disco sounds. We could barely hear ourselves when we talked. Some people, those drunk I guess, really danced wildly as if it was there last. Surprisingly, none of us felt the need to boogie. I'll have to give merit to the age this time I guess.

The reception area
The place was nice and expanding, at least from my last visit. There were a lot of rooms to rent for. We planned to have a dip in their swimming pools but they were closed at 10PM. We had so much fun talking we forgot about the time limit for the pool. Nevertheless, we had a quick dip in its somewhat muddy beach. 

The resort rooms

From small cottages to big conference halls, they can surely accommodate anyone. Videoke stalls are all around to cater those rising concert stars. The room we rented was clean and had Cable TV in it. The aircon was well functioning too.

Thanks to Loserboys and  husband-and-wife-to-be Dan and Mani for the invitation and the moments.

199Jobs Review

I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.


Trekking from Budlaan to Sirao Peak in Cebu

The Babag trekking group did another adventurous trekking. This time from Budlaan to Sirao; to conquer Sirao Peak.

We trekked thru the Kabang River in Budlaan then climb Sirao Peak which is approximately 750 Meters above sea level.

How we went there:

We met at sunny hills in Talamban then rode a habal-habal (25 Pesos each) going to Budlaan. Then from Budlaan, we went down to Kabang river and started trekking. We passed by 4 wonderful waterfalls then we   trekked to Sirao Peak. This whole trek started from 9 AM and ended at 5PM(where we reached the summit).

From Sirao, we rode habal2 again down to JY square. Fare is 50 pesos each.
