The Complete Canyoneering Adventure in Badian and Alegria, Cebu!

Yup! You read that right! You can now experience the whole canyoneering tour in both Badian and Alegria with @happyjuanderer.

The canyoneering tour will now kick off in the Alegria river downstream going through Badian and ends in Kawasan falls.

And If you’ve been to south Cebu recently, then you might be aware of the dispute between the town of Alegria and Badian which has split the canyoneering experience into two parts which in turn has confused a lot of tourists.

Anyway, moving forward! The two towns have finally agreed to join forces through their bridging gap (@happyjuanderer), and you can now finally experience the whole canyoneering tour like how it initially started.

Manila Life, Staycation

LUB D Family Hostelcation (and How to Plan your Own) @Lub_d

Lub d, which means “sleep well” in Thai, is Southeast Asia’s leading Hotel & Hostel brand based in Bangkok. The new Brgy. Poblacion, Makati branch is their first expansion in Manila.

Though the design and pricing is that of a hostel, having more Private Rooms (119) vs. Duplex Rooms (34) and Mixed Dorm rooms (10) makes Lub d Makati more like a budget hotel. It’s the largest one in the Philippines targeting millennial travelers who want to see the world. It’s also great for families and training your little travelers to get used to the hostel vibe.

Our family stayed for a short “hostelcation” over the weekend. Here’s why we think it’s the best place for one in Makati…

Desgo 大帅锅火锅: 24H Chinese Hot Pot in Makati–Tara Let’s Go? (Review)

Have you ever noticed the different restaurants in the metro catering to Mainland Chinese? One such resto is Desgo Hot Pot in Makati.

We were craving for some authentic Chinese hot pot but didn’t know which place to go to. Thankfully, we got a tip from our Chinese friend from Jaycees about the 24H Hotpot restaurant along Washington St.

We were excited to try Desgo Hot Pot with the boys. Here’s what we think about it…
