Cebu: Food, Friends, and Events

Last February 22-23, 2013, +Jomar  and I went to the Queen City of the South, Cebu for a Google Apps Seminar-Workshop organized by  +GDG Cebu . Day 1 - Training & AA Due to bad weather, our flight was delayed from Manila, but I am so thankful that it didn't get cancelled. We arrived in Cebu at around 6:30 PM. We got a cab and head to Robes Pension House only to find out that no room is available for early check-in. We walked towards the direction of Cebu Normal University (event venue) and saw a few more pension houses. We decided to check-in at Skypark Pension House. They have clean rooms, clean bathroom, and accommodating staff. I was delighted with the price I paid. After around 15 minutes of arranging our stuff, Jomar and I headed to CNU for the whole day training.

Places to Visit in Cavite

Jomar (my boyfriend) is from Cavite province. Because of that, we decided to have a Cavite tour as part of our Valentine-Birthday celebration. He knows how much I love going to historical places. Thus he planned an itinerary for a day trip going places that played a significant role in Philippines history. We started our trip by meeting at Ayala Avenue, Makati City. We rode a bus going to Baclaran then transferred to a bus that goes to Cavite City. After around an hour and a half due to the horrible traffic near SM Bacoor, we went down in Aguinaldo's Shrine. It was my first time there! Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine Source of the Picture

Cebu Pacific Official Receipt

I love flying with Cebu Pacific, but it was about to change after my experience yesterday. For this particular flight, I need an official receipt for liquidation purposes because a company will be paying for my trip. It says on their website that...

Bontoc-Baguio Adventure

Summary Last January 26, GDG Halsema  had their first meet-up . Jomar and I went up to Bontoc to be their speakers. Jomar talked about GDG and GDG Philippines while I discussed and had a demo of Google Apps particularly with an emphasis on how teachers and students could maximize it. But before the meet-up, Jomar and I rode a 12-hour bus ride going to Bontoc through Cable Tours. Some tips, buy or reserve your tickets ahead of time. I purchased our tickets the day before our trip, and we were already seated at the back. Come Friday, some people wanted to buy more tickets but they couldn't. I tried reserving tickets through phone but they didn't reply, so I decided to go to the terminal located inside a compound. To go there, you have to walk inside the compound between Shakey's and the Trinity University of Asia along E. Rodriguez Avenue. The bus left 9:00 PM, and we had three to four stopovers.
