Trying Out “I LOVE BUCKET SHRIMPS” in Mactan With Stunning Views of the Sea and Sunset

Sometimes, satisfying my cravings for food by buying and cooking it at home is not enough. I still yearn for a better place to savor the kind of meal I desired — a place which would awaken my senses, where I would watch the sun set on the horizon, view the sea, the clouds, the sky as it changes its colors; and then catch the sight of the moon and stars as they begin to show off their radiance, observe the boats pass by, hear the ocean waves as they splash against the seawall, smell the salty breeze of the ocean, feel the refreshing air as it caresses my skin and, of course, indulge myself the flavors of these savory food that I have been yearning for a long time. Dzibah, ang arte lang, haha 🤣🤣🤣

A Sweet Thrill : A Sugar Rush Adventure

“Tell me your nasuya (envious) without telling me your nasuya ” Those were the words that kept on repeating in my head as I was in this situation. haaaaaalp!!!!!😨

My sister and I were dining at Sbarro in SM Cebu, and as we finished eating, she noticed a family with two kids, and one kid holding a balloon. As she scrutinized the sight, she realized it was not a balloon but cotton candy with a design of a head of a cartoon character. She tapped me and pointed at what she saw. And I mumbled my amazement, “How cute and adorable! I MUST GET ONE.

BLACK SMOKEHAUS: Trying Out Authentic Texas Style Barbecue in Mandaue City, Cebu

I was so confident to finally win because I got the first two wins out of three in playing this childhood game of PAPER-ROCK-SCISSORS, because if I win we would eat in Pearl, my “go to” Korean Restaurant, as I was craving for a samgyeopsal meal. However, Harold was already “UMAY” in Korean cuisine and wanted to try something new. He was annoyed with me with the idea of eating again and again in Pearl, haha 😂! That’s why he decided to play this silly game and if he won, we would go to Black Smokehaus. As you already know, he won and I realized I haven’t really mastered the art of PAPER-ROCK-SCISSORS game contrary to what I thought.

Anyhoo, honestly, I haven’t heard about this place before because I’m not that foodie kind of person and I get anxious in trying something new nowadays, LOL! 😂I thought this was a sort of familiar barbecue kind of place like Matias or AA’s where I usually dine with family and friends for the yummy barbecues. Well, since Harold won, I guess it might be well to see what the place does offer.

OLANGO ISLAND: Food Tripping Makes Adventure More Exciting

I’ve been to this island thrice already. The first time was because of Richelle and her now hubby’s prenuptial shoot when my friend and I where the ones who took their photos. It was a memorable visit for me not just because I had set foot on this island but also because I had the opportunity to shoot for a prenup again despite my limited equipment. I only had an 85mm lens, no reflectors, no other accessories at all! Nevertheless, I was extremely happy with the outcome of the photographs.

OLANGO ISLAND:Let’s Go Biking and “Lamawing”

I once posted about this LAMAWAN in OLANGO ISLAND in my Facebook Page and I showed in my video that the LAMAW there costs about 40-60 Pesos per serving. A friend reacted and commented that it was kind of costly and that it was more affordable if one will just buy the ingredients and prepare the LAMAW at home and viola, one can have LAMAW at home at a cheaper price. I couldn’t agree more and besides one can buy LAMAW along the streets, in stalls, in the malls. What makes this LAMAW in OLANGO ISLAND different is something that I can never forget. Well, let me tell you this.
