What I did in Cebu: Let me show you a bit of my trip to Cebu!

During our quick stay, we had a wonderful day with the lovely marine and tropical animals at Cebu Ocean Park! This day-tour was enough to feed our hungry selves with such awesomeness all over the place.

What to expect in Cebu Ocean Park? 

This tourist spot in Cebu recently open this September 2019, and is still on soft opening. (Check put their website for their grand opening.) The facilities were almost complete, and according to their staffs, there are already many tourists coming in and out everyday. 

The whole facility is clustered into parts: a jungle trek where you will be able to see beautiful birds flying around and some tropical marine animals inside huge aquariums; jaw-dropping exhibits of most rare species of animals such as amphibians, reptiles, arachnids, etc.; different aquariums sizes filed with beautiful small to medium-sized marine creatures; a tunnel where you can see small to medium-sized sharks, sting rays and a lot more (which mostly I can no longer identify).

Tunnel Aquarium at Cebu Ocean Park
After witnessing the gorgeous day, our indoor tour at Cebu Ocean Park was wrapped-up by an interesting bird show. Beautiful parrots in different species were proudly showcased with their skills in doing smart tricks. One shocking trick done was a “money-smart trick” where Mr. Bird needed a new friend to participate during its trick. Since I am and I was obviously having fun, I participated and met the bird face-to-face. I was asked to bring a five hundred peso bill as props.  And wow! The parrot was smart enough to get the money out from my hand and it drop the yellow bill to a donation box! I was shocked! I thought it was just a game! 😂 

I was already making my self accept that my money is gone and will be donated to Cebu Ocean Park’s unique programs in support of nature and wildlife preservations. (But I was glad, because it was really just a joke! They returned the money. I got it and kept it, coz I have not brought enough cash for the day.) It was crazy! 🙃

It was a cheerful day with the adorable animals. And yes, I would definitely encourage everyone to drop by Cebu Ocean Park, located behind SM Seaside Cebu and have a look! The feeling you’ll get is calming and will surely warm your heart. Cebu Ocean Park is a great place for family bondings, couples dating, school-trips and even just for a quick escape from your city life’s hustle and bustles. 

Entrance Fee as of November 2019 is Php 600/head for locals; and Php 800/head for our foreign friends. (Check Cebu Ocean Park website for updates: )


The Cebu Ocean Park is located beside the San Pedro Calungsod Chapel, at the back of SM Seaside City Cebu in South Road Properties (SRP) in Cebu City.

How to get there?

Easiest way to go there is by taking a taxi or a grab car so you will arrive in a good mood and fresh. It will cost you approximately Php 120 - Php 200. Another option is by taking a SM service bus from Cebu City proper to SM Seaside City Cebu. 

Remember that hiring a private car or taxi saves up time and energy, while commuting by bus or jeepney is honestly exhausting and unenjoyable, because you will need to wait and compete with other mall goers and locals on their way home living in the area, plus traffic jams.

Thank you and see you on our next getaway!

A 29 year old local designer and make up artist Ralph Roderick John Pareja from Poblacion Ilaya, Passi City, Iloilo stunned many netizens of his creativity and ideas. He fascinatingly created various and interesting designs of face mask amidst of corona virus disease 2019 (COVID19) scare. 

Effectively making use of time while staying at home could mean so many things in our lives. While most people are probably enjoying movies and Korean series via Netflix and some are maybe recording videos for TikTok, this young artist of Passi, Iloilo was productively satisfying himself by making unique, funky and extravagant art pieces.

He accepted that his life became extra boring right after the announcement of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) due of COVID19. Everyone is mandated to stay at home and firmly cooperate with the instructions to help make the work of LGUs, volunteers and front liners lighter. Instead of becoming less, he decided to conceptualize and create something unique and nic…

Travel: Lovely Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort, San Joaquin Iloilo

What can we make if we talk to God in a peaceful place? 
A millenial like me would always want something fun and nice after many days of hectic schedule. I could just frown if I am rushed and pressured by others; to live life fast is something I persoanlly don't like. I don't want to compete with time. I believe that life must be enjoyed slowly.
Traveling is my medicine. It is my way to improve my self. It is one best way to I reflect and thank God, how He made my life so beautiful and perfect. Oh, how I love His gift these days and forever; the "luxury of time". Now, I can definitely say yes to most opportunities coming my way. I have been traveling for free, and more free trips coming my way.

I still can't forget my trip with my friends at Rosma Pebbled Cove Resort in San Joaquin. God really knows when to give a day for rest and fun. It was a quick getaway, but that day was filled with so much fun and so many good memories to keep. In addition, Rosma Pebbled Co…
