Sumo Sam's Assorted Sushi and Sashimi plate

Sumo Sam is not a typical Japanese restaurant. The strokes of kanji printed atop the branding, the “hinomaru” circle on its logo, and the part of the name itself, sumo (a Japanese martial art) are your only clues. The restaurant’s look and ambiance, however, does not feel Japanese at all, despite the presence of some Nihon cultural figures and paintings displayed at the bar. The dining sets look modern and the ceiling lights are Read more

Escario Central Hotel receiving area

The simple vertical strokes of orange and red makes a fine and stunning contrast with the ivory walls. The tidy-stalked bamboo trees, the small mead that wrapped the lawn, and the classic-looking set blend perfectly to let you experience a zen feel. The Reception There’s nothing flashy in the receiving area. In place of chandelier is a hand-crafted spherical rattan which mesh added an atypical element to the lighting inside it. Two Read more

Turtle Bay Dive Resort Moalboal

I could feel the warmth of the morning sun. Bright rays transcend through the wooden shutter window. It was left open. No one minded to close it though, after watching the fireworks that lit the sky the night before. New Year’s Eve, that was. I was still sleepy at 07AM. However, inasmuch as I wanted to return to sleep—I couldn’t—I remembered I agreed to join a friend for a laid-back sojourn in Moalboal. The Read more

Turtles regularly swim around the waters of Panagsama Beach in Moalboal

That elusive photo chasing a sardine run, that priced selfie with a marine testudine, and that noteworthy beach camp gracing the sunset where just few of the expectations listed on every Moalboal goer. Moalboal, a once sleepy town seating 90 kilometers southwest of Cebu City, offers a laid-back vibe. Stunning white strips adorn its edges where clear and calm ripples regularly wash off the shore. Beneath are unassuming underwater wonders. Sea turtles frequently seen feeding Read more

New Orleans Cebu Jumbo shakes, interestingly refreshing

Oysters, shrimps, and pork sausages are mainstays – that was the only info I have about Creole cooking. I never tried one either, and was never curious. Aside from being rare in the Philippines, only few restaurants specialize such cuisine – most of them are too pricey. Creole traces back to Louisiana, more particularly in Big Easy or New Orleans. You may think of haunted houses, vampire movies, all-night parties, and the Mardi Gras. My Read more

Malapascua's North Beach front

Malapascua is one of the smallest inhabited island of the Philippines. It only measures 2.5 by 1 kilometer. Being home thresher sharks, manta rays, and diverse coral species, Malapascua became a famous dive site. The island is also a host to multiple white-sand beaches and interesting rock formations. Malapascua, by the way, floats 6.8 kilometers northeast of Cebu island. I’ve been hearing recommendations to go see Malapascua the past few Read more
