A Traveller’s Towering Adventure (My Return To The Queen City Of The South)

          My main purpose as to why I came back to CEBU CITY is to experience the newest, latest and most visited extreme tourist spot that the Queen City of the South has to offer… And that is SKY EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE, which is the WORLD’S FIRST AND ONLY by CROWNE REGENCY HOTEL & TOWERS, standing 40 stories high making it the tallest hotel tower in the Country, located at the Heart of Cebu City in the Philippines.

          For only 800 Philippine Pesos, You would experience a whole day package of a 400 feet high SKYWALK EXTREME, which is a walk on a path around the 37th level outer-rim. EDGE COASTER, which is around the 38th level outer-rim. 4D EXPERIENCE, with 3 varieties of movies to choose from. SKY OBSERVATORY, where you can witness the freedom of the heavenly bodies to incandesce its elegance at such a bewitching night. And the finest part of it all is the SKY BUFFET dinner of International Dishes from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM accompanied by soothing music by the local band located in the 36th level, which is a romantic and dream-like 180 degrees glass-covered view of the spectacular City of Cebu.

          I also had my side trips. Of course! It’s very impossible that there’s no Sun, Sea and Sand in my Itinerary. That wouldn’t be a Fun Vacation for a Beach Bum like me! So I had an overnight stay at TAMBULI RESORT in MACTAN ISLAND located at LAPU-LAPU CITY where they had elegant pools and a breezy white powdery sandy beachfront.

          At Cebu City, I stayed at this perfectly new 5 story accommodation called CEBU R HOTEL, which I strongly recommend because of its low-cost, dirt-free, sanitary, polished and tidy rooms. As well as, very helpful staffs that I had a chat with at their lobby while recalling the terrific events of SKY EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE…

         Cebu is also a neighborhood rich in different kinds of foods. So I tried their popular restaurants like the PORT SEAFOOD restaurant where they served buffet from lunch to dinner. Also at GOLDEN COWRIE and NEO-NEO GRILL HOUSE where delicious Seafoods are digested.

         Of course! Another thing that you should never miss while in Cebu is their “WORLD FAMOUS CEBU LECHON” at C&T Stalls found in Ayala Center and SM Cebu malls.

         Overall, it was one of my most memorable and unforgettable vacations that totally relieved me and eliminated the stress that I have been carrying for the past weeks. Definitely, I would come back to try SKY EXPERIENCE ADVENTURE again coz’ once you’re on the top and edge of the highest hotel tower in the country overlooking a 400 feet high City view, you would just forget all of your problems and feel that you are the toughest human in the world for conquering an episode such as that…

The Good Samaritan In Me

                Isn’t it amazing to see that an ordinary man’s pure heart could be so powerful in saving our world from violent and ruinous forces? That one man’s dream could turn the entire EARTH into a serene, enjoyable and unpolluted place to live in. That all of us has the capacity to be this superhero that our dying world needs. We could be role models and ideal examples for everyone especially the youth. And if we all have this same heart and dream to revive our failing world, then everyone will have a better and brighter place to call HOME…

                I want to share 4 of my own experiences where it brought out the Selfless and Good Samaritan in me… First, was when I saw a Bank Check on the floor of the University grounds amounting to 30,000 Philippine Pesos that I can en-cash anytime in the Bank but instead it worried me that the student who lost it might have no tuition to pay for the next semester, this might force her to stop studying in college and it will destroy her dreams for her future and could also affect her family who are depending on her. So I did all that I can to find this girl who lost the check and thankfully I found her and asked her some essential questions to prove that the check was hers. So I returned the check and she was very grateful. The Second scenario also happened in the university, when I saw a phone on the floor which is the latest version in the market at that time so it might cost around 25,000 to 30,000 Philippine Pesos. So again, I searched for the owner until I returned the phone to him, he was very appreciative for what I did because his mother was worried sick that she can’t contact her son. That was the time when landslides were occurring in Baguio due to heavy rainfall. The third situation was when I have withdrawn only 500 Philippine Pesos from the ATM Machine but instead 4,000 Philippine Pesos worth came out from the machine so I was shocked, urgently I went to the Bank and returned the extra money right away, the company praised and awarded me for my honesty. The last thing I did for my fellow Filipinos was I tried to collect and donate all that I can find to a relief organization that provides help to those affected by disasters.

                So in my own little way, whether it will create a small or big impact would have made a difference in trying to change the world and making it into what you can call HOME that is full of love and sharing. We don’t need to expect anything in return if we did something kind and good to others. By helping others itself and realizing that we have that potential in us is already a marvelous gift given by our GOD…

The Ultimate Filipino Traveller (The Philippine Travel Photos Edition)

               It all started when I want to go to Boracay but no one is available to accompany me because all the people including my family and friends were too busy in their own lives. It was my ultimate dream here in the Philippines to visit Boracay, so I told myself that even if I’m alone, I’ll enjoy Boracay to the fullest. So I began travelling alone on October of 2006, the first two places that I went to was Boracay and Bohol and from there, the name “HAPPY LONER TRAVELLER” was born…

                When I was learning gradually about my Country’s history, culture, traditions and my fellow Filipino’s lives, it became so addictive for me that I realized, I want to discover and explore more of the Philippines, that I want to learn more of the hidden mysteries and magnificence offered by my own Country because I was just so fascinated and intrigued by it. From there, I developed these idea and advocacy that I want to visit the places that are not yet popular and undiscovered so that I could help promote Philippine tourism, so that people from foreign lands would see how captivating and fruitful our Country is and they would plan a vacation to visit the Philippines thus, creating and increasing more jobs for our fellow Filipinos.

                 So I promoted the Philippines through my love of writing… I started making blogs as “HAPPY LONER TRAVELLER”, exploring places not universally known to man and yet journeying alone to these best kept secrets… Beautiful opportunities have blossomed from my hobby of writing blogs, it became one of my sources of living. I have won awards from different contests, been recognized from several magazines & websites and have been sponsored & given gifts from various airlines, hotel & resort owners. But for me, primarily, writing is still an art and advocacy of which I could make my own difference in this world and lifetime by sharing my utmost thoughts in trying to change our world from extreme poverty & tremendous destructions into a fresh, sanitary, rich and peaceful earth…

                I have been a Traveller of the Philippines for 4 years now and I have already turned myself into a Professional Travel Blogger and I won’t stop with my advocacy until all Filipinos and foreigners will learn how to appreciate, love, protect, cherish, maintain and treat the natural beauties of our Country, as well as the entire EARTH as a place of haven and sanctuary… And I won’t stop tracking down and uncovering more of the unseen natural gems in the Philippines and opening them up to the whole globe…

                Thank you to the owners and creators LAR DE LOS REYES and LIZZA of PHILIPPINE TRAVEL PHOTOS for featuring me in their website. It’s such an honor for me to be a part in promoting our beloved PHILIPPINES!!!
