Rodeo Grill Barbeque and Sizzlers

Mine and Evelou’s favorites ♥

I had my first visit in their old branch located in Archbishop Reyes Ave. that was near in Ayala Center Cebu at the back of Hotel Elizabeth. Me and my family were loyal customers of Rodeo Grill. Because before most of their crews were my neighbors and their food is affordable. Their interior theme is a Wild wild west or Western like cowboys. The crews wearing red checkered polo and boots. Yes! There was this one time when this girl wearing red checkered polo entered the place, but she didn’t bother anyway, but most of the people there staring at her.

Rodeo Grill’s Best seller – Texas Sizzling Chicken – 169 php
Arkansas Tender Ribs – 269 php for Man size while 199 php for Girl size

Lasso Noodles – 129 php
(Left) Country Chicken Wings meal – 169 php (Right) Rodeo Grill Lechon de Cebu meal – 159 php
Rodeo Grill is certainly the best place to dine when you’re looking for good food, affordable price and large servings. Their meal consists of the main course, two cups of rice and your drink of choice. They prepare your orders in presto and seamless.


So what are you waiting for? Have you tried there? How was it?

Rancho Cancio


Rancho Cancio is a private owned rest house which is situated in Barangay Adlanon, Busay Cebu City and just a few meters away from Ayala Heights. When we arrived there, we felt so relaxed because of the place. It’s so peaceful and tranquil that all you can hear were birds chirping and the owner’s dog howling.

Selfie ta oy!
Selfie ta baa! Artiha oyyyy!
Our first picture when we arrived near the infinity pool
That’s our financer *joke* ☺


I really love the place besides that it’s so relaxing, the view is worth a selfie. Actually, that picture above when I took it, I stood in the edge part of the pool. Yes, while my feet is shaking hahaha! ☺ The place was so cold when we got there since it’s in the mountainous part of Busay. And at night it is colder because it was drizzling that time that most of us off to sleep early after we ate our dinner. The things we didn’t like is the food. Before we went there we have to order our food while during the reservation. They have small servings, especially the rice hahaha! (Rice is life.) Luckily, we brought some snacks, cup noodles and coffee with us. Also the map they sent to us. If you will notice the map you can say that it’s just near Ayala Heights but when we went there it’s far from there. There’s no problem for some of us because we rode in their authorize van but we still have colleagues followed us in the afternoon because they still have work when we checked in.

Finally, he owned the pool


Getting there, from JY Square Mall head to Busay thru Transcentral Highway. You can charter a private van from the resort. The owners can also give direct details on how to get there.

We had this place all to ourselves.

Note: The owner prefers that their contact details should not be posted since they want to maintain their privacy and exclusiveness. So if you have questions or want to make a reservation, you may shoot your message to

LifeDance 2016


Every year before Sinulog festival, there were many events lined-up and one of it was Lifedance. Last January 2016 was our first time me and my friends to attend one. We had plans before to attend, but you know most of us were so busy with our life. And here it is, we really did it!


LifeDance, the country’s first ever outdoor EDM Party, kicked off its premiere event in Cebu; drawing an enormous number of people to the Boardwalk Complex last May 26, 2012. This was followed by another on January 18, 2013 dubbed as Life Dance Sinulog: Circus of Life and May 25, 2013 entitled Life Dance Wicked Summer. Life Dance is inspired by renowned dance parties around the world such as Tomorrowland, Zoukout, Sensation, ULTRA and Coachella that have garnered a huge following over the years.

We had just drank one plastic cup of beer which cost 100 PHP,  but before we went to the event we drank in 7/11 near to the venue.
Photo op with Korean party pips! 😀


We arrived 10:00 pm at the venue and as expected, there were already tons of people gathered there. Most of them were already wasted, but still hype with the rave. When we arrived, it was Tom Swoon already on the stage.

Right after Tom Swoon, was the most awaited DJ. It’s DJ Snake! Yes, DJ Snake. That time I’m so excited to watch him because of his song Middle with collaboration with Bipolar Sunshine.


The people were so insane. They danced and sung their hearts out as DJ Snake played his songs with matching fireworks on the side. Of course me too, I sang along when Middle was played. I love this song because it’s so smooth and chill to hear. It’s so calm that it fits to listen during cold summer nights.

I took a video of my favorite part of the song and the people too enjoyed it *sorry for my interrupting voice* ☺

LifeDance Sinulog 2016
 is co-presented by FOX, Star World, FOX Filipino, Channel V Philippines and Smart. For more updates, check out the event’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Don’t forget to add to your social media posts the hashtags #LifeDanceCebu

Be Happy at BE!


Last November, me and my boyfriend celebrated our first at BE Resort Mactan. We availed of their Day use promo because we had a work on the night that day. It was worth 3487 PHP inclusive of room accommodation, use of resort facilities, set of lunch (appetizer, main course and dessert) and one round of drinks but if without the room accommodation it’s only 899 PHP per pax. When we went there, we were the only customers there. We really own the place. Thank you BE! 😀

We stayed here – BE CHIC. Photo Credits:


The resort is so Instagramable. The colors in their rooms are so cool in the eyes. The place is also clean and cozy.

This was so unexpected. Honestly, my boyfriend always teases me that he will never give me flowers because its just a waste of money but there “TADA”!

Most of the furniture in the resort are creations of famous Cebuano Mr. Kenneth Cobonpue.


About his verdict? He was also happy how we celebrated our day. Hi lablab! ♥


Be Resort gives a tropical feeling and a budget  friendly than other resorts that I’ve been. Its simplicity and elegance made me decide to certainly go back here and try to stay for a night. Maybe this summer? How about you? What’s your plan this summer?

City of Pines – Baguio City



After our Ilocandia Adventure, we directly went to the City of Pines – BAGUIO! From Vigan to Baguio is 4 hours and 30 minutes land travel. We left Vigan at 3 in the afternoon. As usual in the van we just took some rest. We stayed in Callalily Pension House and Apartment for 2 days and 2 nights. Our room was nice, it’s an apartment-like roomOur room has 4 beds and many extra mattresses. You can cook and they have also a small kitchen and a balcony to the pines outside.

Friends for keeps ♥

Two of our friends didn’t join our tour for our first day in Baguio because the girl was not feeling well probably because of the weather condition. So they just stayed in our apartment.

Day 1 of our Baguio escapade started going to La Presa. Yes, in La Presa. We traveled 30 minutes from Baguio Cathedral. I noticed there were many people in Baguio then they have also a version of their traffic yet you are safe in crossing in pedestrian lanes. Good drivers!

Familiar isn’t it? Actually it’s Agnes (Liza Soberano)’ house in drama series “Forevermore”

When we went to La Presa, I’m so happy because there were not so many people visiting there not like what I have seen from some photos maybe its because of the weather. There were so many stalls selling souvenirs, foods, and shirts anywhere in the place.

When you want to take a picture wearing the Igorot costume you have to pay 20php.
The actual name of Sitio La Presa is Sitio Pongayan.

After La Presa, we went downside in Fort Gen Gregorio H. Del Pilar. It’s known as PMA Academy. When I was young I want to be an army. I don’t know why maybe its because I’m too much addicted watching action animes and movies before. Yea that’s me! 😉 but my mom said that girls weren’t allowed there. Hayst.

If you want to go to PMA Academy, you have to wear closed shoes for the men and strappy sandals for women. Slippers and short shorts were not allowed if you want to tour inside the academy. The place was so quiet. Yes, because it’s an academy of our future armies and they had also classes on going even if that time was Sunday. We were so late when we went there, we’re not able to watch their formations. 😦 The students were so disciplined. When they passed by and walked outside their rooms, they were so silent. Even if we took pictures with them, they were so silent.

Fort Gen Gregorio H. Del Pilar Field

After in PMA Academy, we went also to Bell Church, Camp John Hay and Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad. This was the first time I tasted strawberries. I thought it tasted sweet, but I was wrong. It was so sour. I’d rather eat the ice cream and “taho” than the fruit itself. Then we also went to Burnham Park. We stroll, we rode a trike because I don’t know how to drive bikes and we tried also row a boat.

Bell Church
We just took a selfie outside Butterfly Sanctuary.

Strawberry you like?
How about strawberry ice cream?
or the strawberry Taho? ♥
Row row the boat at Burnham Park
Pool of Pines – Wright Park

Ending our day 1 tour in Session Road, we ate our dinner in Mang Inasal, SM Baguio. Because of my craziness, I really asked one of the guards in the mall do they still turned on the air conditioners inside the mall. The Kuyang Guard just laughed at me. HAHAHAHA! After our dinner we went to Night Market in Harrison Road.  They have lots of varieties there from street foods, ukay – ukay, souvenirs, and flowers. For me, this was my cheapest ukay-ukay experienced. I saw 3 for 50 PHP sweaters. Big traveler bag for 50 PHP and they’re also their RTW’s way cheaper than mall prices.

The Mansion

Our Day 2 in Baguio and our last day, we woke up early and ate our breakfast in 7/11 store. There were so many 7/11 stores around Baguio. Our first stop was in The Mansion, we didn’t take so long there. We just took a picture near the gate. One of their guards is a Cebuano. We were shocked he suddenly asked us, “Taga Cebu mo? Taga Labangon bya ko.” Wow! Then after the photo op we crossed the street, then took a picture of the famous Pool of Pines in Wright Park. Wright Park is just fronting the main gate of The Mansion. Riding ponies are the most favorite among people but not for me. I feel pity for them.

Mines View Park

As our last day, we bought some souvenirs in Mines View Park. Because most of the people usually recommend to buy souvenirs there because it’s cheaper than the other, but a trip to Baguio will never be complete without bringing home ube and strawberry jams from Good Shepherd and it’s near in Mines View Park. We also had a quick visit at Baguio Botanical Garden and took a selfie with those Igorot Lolas ✌.

Peace yo nigga! ✌
Last family picture together with the Lolas

Before we leave Baguio, our guide brought us in Good Taste Cafe and Restaurant for our lunch. We’re a little bit doubt of possible prices of their food because the ambiance was like a restaurant in a hotel. Yet when we were checking their menu me and my boyfriend ordered Beef Curry Rice and Fried Rice with Chicken for him and iced teas. Then when our orders arrived, were so shocked of their big servings that we paid 200+ for us two. You should also try their famous chopsuey and buttered chicken.

Lion’s Head – Kennon Road

Lastly, a tour to Baguio won’t be complete without photo op with the Lion’s Head in Kennon Road. Just beside the lion head are a few small stalls of selling woodcarvings and other handicrafts.

Baguio offers a lot of attractions and destinations that promotes its heritage and its indigenous culture. The place is highly-urbanized. Yet they still epitomize it’s culture by representing it though traditions that are celebrated through festivities and maintaining its culture as a part of their modern society. I hope people can save it from becoming a congested tourism.

Thank you Baguio! ✌

Sizzling Pepper Steak

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

My friends working near in Ayala introduced me to Sizzling Pepper Steak because it opens early in the morning, then when we tried it, it’s also affordable. Me and my friends tried their group meals offered.


We went back again but with my other half. We ordered the breakfast meal for two. The meal includes the choice of soup, the sizzling of your choice and iced tea drink.

When I had my first time here I’m so curious about what that gray tube is. Then when our sizzling orders arrived, it turned on so eventually I realized its an exhaust. ^.^

Their location is in Ayala Center Cebu, The Terraces. Just right beside Breadtalk and The Pancake House. When we arrived there, we were the only customers during that time because it’s still 7 am in the morning that time.

Egg drop soup
That’s my order, Beef Pepper Rice ♥ *My favorite!* ^.^
My date ^.^ ♥

I love their place. Their food is so affordable. Price ranges from 150-600 PHP. So what are you waiting for!

Sizzling Pepper Steak is a casual Japanese themed steak restaurant, steaks served on a hot plate. It is a sister company of Pancake House and Teriyaki Boy.

Last January 24 me and my cousins decided to go for canyoneering downstream at Canlaob River in Alegria going down to Kawasan Falls in Badian together with our cousins from New Zealand. It is once in a lifetime that they have gone back here in the country and they want to have a bonding with other cousins in an adventure way and most of them go for canyoneering. Yikes!

Canyoning (‘canyoneering in the U.S.) is travelling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling (rappelling), and swimming.

From Wikipedia

It is now popular here in Cebu especially for the adventurous people.

I’m nervous already *.*

For those who were afraid of heights and jumping down on a high fall it is discouraged to do the activity. Really, I’m so nervous during that time when we were going to the first jump off.

We’re ready! #TeamGupok. Me? I’m okay na lang 😀
Second jump-off (5 feet)


Picture before sliding down.





What I wear:

  • Rashguard
  • Capri size leggings
  • Tribal outdoor slippers with strap
  • Lastly, Wear something light and comfortable


What to do:

  • Always follow your guide
  • Be careful in jumping
  • Face your fears.
  • Enjoy the moment!


I prefer to wear long sleeves because I’m afraid I might get scrapes and cuts from the rocks. Be sure you remove all your accessories and jewelries that you’re wearing.  Then our gears like the life jackets and helmets were provided by our guides. It’s advisable to contact your guides in advance so that there will no be hassle when you arrive at the place.


Actually, during the activity I was more excited in sliding down than jumping off because of the adrenaline rush. ^___^  I’m more tired during the long trek, especially in crossing rivers because of the rocks beneath.

After 48 years, TADA! Finally, we arrived at Kawasan Falls. You can eat your lunch, but for us. We prefer to eat our lunch elsewhere besides during that time there were lots of people in the place especially on the first falls.


It’s definitely a must try adventure here in Cebu. Have you done canyoneering? Share us your story. 🙂

My Epic Valentines for Him ♥

Every Valentines’ Day, me and my other half used to give gifts and dinner date anywhere. My bf doesn’t want me to give something for him I don’t know why. HAHAHAHAHA! But usually when I give gifts to him I give it in an epic and funny way. Like for instance, last Christmas I gave him a Bluetooth speaker. I asked his sister to set it up on his room, then he suddenly arrived and entered into his room, his sister played the Minion song (Bababananana!) and to his surprise, he found a Xmas card in the box of the speaker. Then, he immediately thinks of me. He really knew me a lot. Yes that’s me. Crazy huh?


This is the MC JIM classic leather long wallet, I gave to him.

First, on thinking how will I give it to him. I search a lot. I thought of following Ching’s idea on her blog, but I had so little time. So I used the free pitcher which I won in an event in SM Cebu. HAHAHAHA!

Pictures below shows how I troll my guy:

I wrapped the wallet with a paper napkin from Jollibee. It still smells good because of the scent of french fries. Yay!
When I put the wrapped wallet in the pitcher and put some trash papers and napkins inside it.
Posting an effortless sticky note. Effortless indeed 😀


I’m done! Problem here is how will I set this up to surprise him.



Presto! His team lead helped me because he had a rest day over time during Valentines’. He’s the one who kept and put the pitcher in my boyf’s station.

After our date in Anzani, he directly went to work, then he saw the pitcher in his station. He immediately asked me why pitcher? How will I use this? He really didn’t open it right away because he’s still figuring out on why did I give him a pitcher? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Later on when he opened it, he’s so happy that he will be having a new wallet.

One of the most epic slash fun slash prank I tried to him. HAHAHAHA! How about you? How you guys celebrated the Hearts day? How was it? Me? Well its obvious I really had fun when I’m with him. *Tsar!* ♥

Happy Valentines’ Day! ♥
