Hiking Mt. Babag 2: The Steep Trail, Roble Family, RCPI Towers

Image
The two hours of walk from Brgy. Napo (see Part 1) led us to a creek. This is the point where we have to choose which trail to take: the "long and easy" or the "short but steep" one. In our first attempt to climb Mount Babag, we chose the short and steep trail. And indeed, it proved to be a difficult, uphill climb.

[Related: Climbing Mount Babag Part 1: Guadalupe to Napo to the Small Creek]
Crossing the creek, we turned right to a somewhat hidden trail (the obvious trail is on the left direction which is the "long and easy" one). It led us to a small house where we asked direction. They will pointed us to climb the rose plantation: a 60-degree steep rose fields. That is the beginning of a continuous, extremely steep slope that we have to climb. Our only chance of rest are the small flat portions with tree shades.


So What's New in Manila Domestic Terminal (NAIA 4)? Mister Donut!

Image
The first time I've been to NAIA Terminal 4 or more commonly known as Manila Domestic Terminal was back in 2008. That time, Cebu Pacific still operates there. My experience in the place was bad. It was crowded and the aircon cannot support it so everyone was perspiring, most of which are standing due to lack of seats.

Had Enough Holidays? August 21 and 26 are also Holidays!

Image
Most will really love this month! Not for the rainy season but because of the three national holidays being celebrated during the month of August. The first one, Eid'l Fitr will be celebrated this coming Friday. That holiday though is movable because it was based on Islamic lunar calendar. This year, it fell on August 9. Next year though, it would be around July 30.

August 21, 2013 Holiday The second holiday is on August 21, also known as Ninoy Aquino Day. This is an annual observance of the death of former Senator Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr. Yes, he is the father of President Benigno "Pnoy" Aquino III. His assassination in 1983 is considered to be the trigger point that leads to 1986 EDSA Revolution. The revolution forced the end of the dictatorial regime of then President Ferdinand Marcos.


Introducing Technology News in Blogged Philippines

Image
Dear valued readers,
I started blogging in summer of 2009. Back then, this blog was more of a personal blog about all the ideas that I have in mind. I wrote about my interests such as movies music, books, food money and travel. The name of this blog back then was Ideas Digest and I have a subdomain using Google’s Blogspot.
Late that year, this blog started to focus on travel and flight information. Then I ventured into government news. I found it very noble to help disseminate information on such things as holiday announcement, class suspensions and the like.

Bohol Tour: Loboc Floating Restaurant Entertainment [VIDEO]

Image
To date, I've had three Bohol Day Tours, each of them were memorable. Although the places are the same, the experience of being with different people each time makes the trip unique.

In those three tours, people always tell me that the experience in Loboc River Floating Restaurant is the best among the rest. I don't exactly know why but probably, the idea of a buffet meal while cruising in a river, on-board singers and stop-over dancing stations all lined up to create a unique experience that's really hard to forget.

List of Suspended Classes from DepEd - July 31, 2013

Cebu Pacific Flies You to Dubai for Only 100 Pesos

Image
Dubai, the crown jewel city of the United Arab Emirates. An open-city in the middle east and is home to thousands of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) is Cebu Pacific's first long-haul destination. The maiden flight to the Arab city is still in October this year yet Cebu Pacific is busy in promoting the new destination. Their latest promotion was just announced a couple of minutes ago - 100 Pesos Fare to Dubai.

OFWs and tourists will surely love this latest offer. Although, the total price is far above from 100 pesos, it will more likely cost less compared to the offers of other airlines. And imagine the convenience of flying directly from Dubai to Manila without stopovers and wasted time in airports waiting for the connecting flight. Many OFWs do that to save money but this latest promo will allow them to save more and yet get more convenience.

Is August 9, 2013 Holiday (Eid'l Fitr) in the Philippines?

According to Proclamation No.459,  the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) shall inform the Office of the President on which day the holiday shall fall.


On Refunding TigerAir Promo Ticket

Image
YES. You can refund promo tickets as long as it's the airline's fault. Here's my story.

I planned to go to Puerto Princesa , Palawan for a short vacation with my family, but due to budget risks and unpredictable weather, I decided to cancel our travel. The good thing though is that Tigerair recently changed my flight time. And since the delay/advance is more than three hours (which I think is the rule), I can refund my tickets. So here's what I did.

Recalling Some of the Worst Philippine Air Travel Accidents

Image
Most people think that the chance of survival in an airline accident is slim. For that reason, safety is the number one priority in civil aviation industry. Airline makers are always improving their designs to make  air travel safer. Now, air travel is considered to be the safest form of travel surpassing land and sea transportation.

While international aviation organizations continues to improve the safety standards of airlines, accident still happens. And the Philippines had a fair share in the list of those. Here are some of the worst.

Is July 9, 2013 (Start of Ramadan) Holiday? No

Image
I've heard people asking if July 9, 2013 is a holiday because it is the beginning of Ramadan, the month of fasting in the Islamic Calendar. The answer is NO. Instead, the Philippines is celebrating the end of Ramadan through the Islamic festival called Eid'l Fitr. This year, it was scheduled to be celebrated in the country this August 9. That date is a special non-working holiday nationwide.

Why Tiger Airways Re-brands to Tigerair?

Image
For those who doesn't know yet, Singapore-based budget carrier Tiger Airways is now TigerAir. The new identity of the leading airline company goes live this month of July. So what's new?

A New Look of their Website and Mobile App Re-branding will be useless unless you change the way you look. TigerAir did that by revamping their website. Though the Tigerish motif is still there, a combination of orange and dark grey hues, the redesigned website looks more neat with more white spaces than before. I personally appreciate how they show their deals now. Before, it was being shown in flash slides. Now, all the deals were in huge tiles. I also like that the booking section was enlarged and placed at the center of page.

Bohol Island Hopping, Dolphin Watching and Balicasag Island Fish Sanctuary

I've been to Bohol many times before. I had visited Tagbilaran thrice and at one time stayed there for a week in a friend's house. I also had experienced four day-tours, visiting popular places such as Sagbayan Peak, Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers forest, Loboc Floating Restaurant and many others. I have also slept in a friend's house in Panglao Island and saw the beauty of Alona Beach.

My Experience with Sun Cellular Postpaid Service

Image
I just want to share my experience with Sun Cellular Postpaid. My main purpose is to inform others who are considering to apply for it.

The Application Process In short, the application process falls below my expectation, but not worse, in my opinion. Here's why.

Slow Process. I applied online at their official website. Based on the list of requirements, I just have to fill out the online form, submit the competitor's latest statement, and a scan of a valid ID. I did all of that.

Later that day, I tweeted Sun Cellular asking how long it will take before I receive a feedback. They told me 3 days. The 3 days turned out to be 6 days.

Well, the application didn't end there. The email I received asked me to submit photocopies of Certificate of Employment, latest 1 month payslip and valid proof of billing. even though their website said I just have to submit a competitor's billing statement and an ID.

Next day, I applied again, this time through a nearby Sun Shop with the th…

PAL Midnight Sale is Now Monday Madness Promo

Image
Update: Latest PAL and PAL Express Monday Madness can be viewed at this Airline Promos Page.


Remember the old PAL Midnight Sale? For those who don't, it is a promotion of Philippine Airlines wherein they offer cheap fares to certain destinations and travel dates every Sunday midnight until 6 in the morning. I still remember the first one back in 2011. PAL's website was inaccessible for almost three hours due to the flood of internet traffic to their servers. Many were irritated, even angered by the unprepared airline company. Slowly though, the succeeding midnight sales becomes more stable.

This is just one of the many cases of scam messages being spread out using SMS or text message. Be careful, many (seriously) have fallen victim of this. Some of them paid a amount to claim their fictitious winnings.

Not the First Time to Use Villar's Name Based on my own research this is not the first time a similar scam was reported. As early as 2010, Villar Foundation, a non-profit organization of former Sen. Manny Villar and Sen. Cynthia Villar, already received similar complaints from victims being promised cash rewards.

What's the Latest in Bohol Day Tour? Increase in Prices

Image
Just recently, I had a Day Tour in Bohol. This is the third one since the first time in September 2010. And just like my previous trips, I took somebody with me. This time though, it's my brother and his family. Overall, nothing is really new in Bohol except the following notable changes.

Fare increase in Ferry Just like my previous two trips, I went to Bohol via Tubigon sailing between Cebu and Bohol in about an hour of ferry trip. And yes, it was MV Star Craft 2 that carried us.
So what's new? The fare. It increased from 200 Pesos to 220 Pesos for an economy seat.

Another one is, well, not new but new to me. Senior Citizens and kids have a  20% discount. Maybe students also have, but I didn't checked. For senior citizens, please bring your Senior Citizen ID.

New Features in Sagbayan Peak There is another new playground park with new statues and castles where kids (and adult alike) can enjoy playing. That is probably the reason why Sagbayan Peak hiked their entrance fee t…

How to Make Leche Flan?

Image
Leche Flan is a Filipino dessert made from milk and eggs. It is somewhat similar to Creme Brulee, only that the sugar topping is not crunchy. Instead it is caramelized sugar syrup. Someone requested for me to make this so I am writing this. This is the recipe I follow and you can make revisions to it as you see fit. You would need a steamer, a strainer and elongated baking pans (llanera). Make sure that you baking pan would fit inside your steamer.

Leche Flan (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Travel Tip: Don't be Late in the Airport

Image
I was surprised by the news about PAL's move to penalize latecomers with additional fees. I actually thought that they have been doing that since the start. Well, Cebu Pacific is already doing that. The first time I actually felt it was in 2010. The story goes like this. My friend is scheduled to fly to Cebu after a week of vacation in his hometown in Marikina. It was a week after the deadly flood of typhoon Ondoy. Many roads were closed. He miscalculated his chances and he ended up 10 minutes late in the airport. And guess what, he was denied to check-in. He paid another 2500 pesos for the next trip. That was terrible but as I read through the Terms and Conditions, I realized what they did is valid.

Two years later, I was going to the airport after a few days of vacation in Bulacan. In the past, it usually takes 3 hours from Bulacan to Airport. But it was not a usual day. Starting in East Ave, everything seems to be slow. The bus is slow. The traffic is terrible. We had to rero…

How To Get To Bantayan Island in Cebu?

Image
Bantayan Island has been one of the famous destinations of both local and international tourists here in Cebu. In recent years, it has slowly become an alternative to Boracay because of the white sands as well as the serenity it offers to those who may wish to have a truly relaxing experience during their vacation. Bantayan island is not as crowded as Bora and the expenses there is way cheaper in comparison.

In this article, I will guide you on your travel to Bantayan Island from Cebu City. That  includes information about fare prices.

Getting to Bantayan Island: Landtrip from North Bus Terminal The first step in getting to Bantayan Island is to ride a bus in Cebu North Bus Terminal. It was located in Mandaue City. For those coming from hotels and inns, it would be advisable to ride a taxi to get there. Or if you have the luxury of time, you can ask a hotel employee or a local friend to know the jeepney route that will pass in the North Bus Terminal.

An Update to My Cancelled Zest Air Flight Story

Image
Last Tuesday, in the article entitled True Story: Warning to Zest Air Passengers and Potential Customers, I wrote about our problem when Zest Air decided to cancel all flights from Cebu to Davao. Now I'm glad to tell everyone that Zest Air finally conceded and gave us a better option than simply refunding our tickets. Here's what happened.

Went Back to Zest Air Office in Mactan-Cebu Airport After trying to contact them through various office numbers, my friends decided to go to their Airport office for the last time. If this turns out unsuccessful, we'll just buy a new ticket and pursue a legal solution. It was a tough decision since the prevailing one-way ticket prices at that time was around 2500 Pesos at the minimum.This is far from the 700 pesos Zest Air offered to refund. But our event in Davao is of utmost importance so we have no choice but to proceed.
Even if it's late Tuesday night, around 10PM, they proceeded to Zest Air office. I decided not to go because, i…

Climbing Mount Babag Part 1: Guadalupe to Napo to the Small Creek

Image
I've never climbed a mountain before. If this one will be successful, then this would be a great accomplishment for me. Well, it turns out that mountain climbing is not an easy task, but the experience is awesome. My first try is probably a less difficult one: Mount Babag in Cebu. In Hiking, Preparation is Important I rose up early morning Saturday to prepare my stuffs. I was told that we'll be going to a far place and that I have to bring a lunch pack and drinking water. I never really knew that I'll be climbing Mount Babag until my friend knocked on my door. To my surprise, he's in rubber shoes, jogging pants and collared t-shirt. A big bag (with emergency kit inside) is on his back. In cotrast, I was dressed differently but upon realizing things, I immediately changed my outfit. I also have to review the content of my bag to suit what I may be needing for the climb. Here's what I brought:

- Lunch pack and small snack items
- Extra clothes
- Water (1 Liter)

Zubuchon - Probably, the Tastiest Lechon Ever!

Image
Beside CNT, another Cebu brand that is popular with whole roasted pig (locally termed as Lechon) is Zubuchon. Well, I can't really put into writing how Zubuchon lechon taste like. It's just palatable and addictive. So, here's a little warning for those who have problems in their blood pressure: if you want to eat there, make sure you have someone who can control you. :-) Otherwise, the you may overindulge.


Other Lechon-based productsZubuchon also offers other products, most of them are lechon-based. Their sinigang lechon is a sinigang where the pork used is lechon. Another one is Prichon which is actually, fried lechon. And they also have Mongos, Zubuchon Sisig, Zubuchorizo, Zubuflakes and more.

[Related: Filipino Foods: Sinigang, Sisig, Kare-kare, Pakbet]

True Story: Warning to Zest Air Passengers and Potential Customers

Image
I don't really want write this to my blog but lately, I thought it would be beneficial for many people to know what happened to me and my friends late last month.

We Booked  Zest Air Tickets Cebu-Davao We had an event in Davao around the middle of this month. To save money we looked for promo fares from   local airlines such as Cebu Pacific, Airphil, and Zest Air. But because it's just a month before the event, we had trouble finding one, thanks to Zest Air who advertised a 88 Pesos promo Cebu - Davao flight. Here's the promotional poster from their website.



We were so glad about it. Five of my friends were able booked a one-way ticket to Davao.

Public Announcement: Zest Air Flights Will Now Be Booked at AirAsia Philippines Website

Image
Many would have seen this coming. Last March, Zest Air and AirAsia Philippines announced a strategic partnership to further their strength in the increasingly competitive local aviation industry currently led by Cebu Pacific. Part of the deal is the acquisition of 40% ownership of Zest Air by AirAsia.



And we are now starting to see the progress of that deal. Starting May 10, 2013 all Zest Air flights will now be booked at airasia.com. Instead of booking in two separate websites, Zest Air and AirAsia customer just have to go to one site. A unified system is of course a more efficient way to operate a business.

We can therefore expect that starting May 10 all visitors of flyzest.com will be redirected to airasia.com/ph.

Efficient Operation Means Better Customer Service? I'm just hoping that this latest development will dramatically improve Zest Air's customer service. I was referring to services that should be given to the customers when flights were cancelled, delayed or resche…

Hiking at Kawasan Falls in Cebu

Image
I told you a couple of posts back that I would talk about places you might want to visit if you are a nature lover. Most nature lovers likes looking at animals or nice views, taking hikes and go swimming on natural springs.

Well if you are a nature lover, Cebu  also has a lot to offer for you. Cebu has some hiking trails that are easy enough for beginners and some that are not so easy.

One such hiking trail is that which could be found in Busay, Mt. Manunggal. The trail is easy enough for first time mountain hikers and the view is nice from the top and the temperature is very cold, specially at night.

Another trail that i have heard about is Osmena Peak. This mountain trail, I believe, is in Badian, Cebu. This trail is a bit more difficult but also more rewarding if you get your directions right. Why? Because this mountain trail will lead you to the most beautiful waterfalls here in Cebu, The Kawasan Falls. I've been there a few times already and I could say, the place is really b…
