Hidden Paradise

March 21-23, 2009 – Our teambuilding – held at Hidden Paradise. It is a mountain resort located at Brgy. Ilaya San Fernando, Cebu City. If you don’t have a car (hehe) you may reach the place by riding a habal-habal (motorcycle) which will cost you 30 pesos each person. It is about 5 kms. away from the national highway.

It is such a nice place, a place where you can relax and be away from the very busy city for awhile. The place was surrounded by green trees and different plants which gives fresh and cool air. It has 4 pools, there is a 3 feet pool which are good for the kids and for those who can’t swim, i guess, just like me <lol>.

MountainView Escapade

February 10, 2009 @ 6.30am… an ordinary rainy morning… just finished our shift for the day and is excited with the rest day. My teammates and i decided to eat in a carinderia near TESDA before going home… however while we were talking… it justcame from nowhere the idea of going out and have some FUN that day… We then decided to go to MountainView (take note it is raining — lol). We travel through a habal-habal (a motorcycle) for additional adventure to reach the top of the mountain. This will cost you 50 pesos per person.

Fun Under the Sun (@Tabuelan)

The old folks if the Municipality of Tabuelan attribute the origin of the town’s name from several sources. In the old days, Batawang River and the locality’s fishing grounds are noted for its plentiful “tabugok,” a kind of octopus. People would refer to this place as “tabugokan” (a native word meaning “the place where tabugok are found”) and through the evolution of words, the place cam to be known as Tabuelan. (From http://www.tabuelan.gov.ph/)

Sinulog ‘09

The Sinulog is an annual festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City, Philippines. The festival honors the child Jesus, known as the Santo Niño (Holy Child), patron of the city of Cebu. It is a dance ritual that commemorates the Cebuano people’s pagan origin, and their acceptance of Christianity.

Sinulog Festival

The festival features a street parade with participants in bright-colored costumes dancing to the rhythm of drums, trumpets, and native gongs. Smaller versions of the festival are held in various parts of the province, also to celebrate, and honor the Santo Niño. There is also a “Sinulog sa Kabataan”, performed by the youths of Cebu a week before the grand parade.
