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.

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.

Climbing Osmena Peak Traverse to Kawasan Falls in Cebu

At 1,013 meters above sea level, we reached the summit of Osmena Peak in Dalaguete, Cebu. It is considered to be the highest in the island. We were welcomed by a beautiful sunset view created by the sun hiding from the slopes of the mountains of Negros.

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.

Green Pasture at the Green Lagoon Park in Compostela Cebu

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.

Midway Minkay Beach Resort

Wife and I went to Midway Minkay beach resort as part of my birthday celebration. We agreed to go out more often while we don't have kids yet. 
The resort is located in the Municipality of Initao, around a 45-minute bus ride from Iligan city where we live. We took a Rural bus transit with a fare of P85 each person.
The resort staff were friendly and polite. Area was clean and we enjoyed the white sands. We rented a room for two for P1,799 a night with complimentary breakfast. The food was great and there were a lot of amenities that you can enjoy such as renting banana boat, zip line and jet skis. 
Overall, we had an awesome time. I highly recommend the place.
Here is a video I created about the resort. Contact numbers and rates are found in the video.
