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.

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.
