Beat the Heat in Mt. Uragay Cold Spring Resort

This unusually hot summer prompted us to seek for a cold place to relax. We need to beat the heat in order to stay sane. We found a place somewhere in the quiet Carmen Cebu. Carmen is about an hour ride north if you are from Cebu City. The place is called Mt. Uragay Cold Spring. It did not fail to refresh us.

I tagged along Redhead, my brother and cousin who is fresh from Iligan in this adventure. We live in Liloan so we reached Carmen in about 20-30 minutes. Plus, we used our own motorcycles in this ride hence shortening the travel time.

The road to the spring resort is near Carmen’s public market so it was not hard to find and locals there were helpful when we asked around. From the highway, it took us 3 kilometers to finally reach the spot. We got there very early so the resort was empty. But in the afternoon, the place was full and some people were even in the wait-list outside.

Mt. Uragay Cold Spring is not that big of a place. It only has 2 swimming pools, one for adults and one for children. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Several staff kept on cleaning the area for a time interval. So the place was clean. It has around 15 cottages and 3 rooms for overnight stay. Two lifeguards were assigned to watch. They have a store that sells chicherias and drinks only so bringing your lunch is a must. There is one big pond where you can go fish feeding.

Overall, we were refreshed by the cold spring. Needless so say, we enjoyed each other’s company and had a great time all along.

  1. Nice photos! Though I feel more enthusiastic seeing the churches and natural ponds (I'm not sure if it's man-made or not) and the beach view around Carmen. But would try to visit the resort on a hot summer day while in Cebu :)

    1. yup. The resort could use a bit of a creative touch especially with their cottages. But, you would surely enjoy the cold spring. :)

  2. Good article, just popped over from naturestimline, having seen your link on LinkdIn.

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…

[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…
