Summer Getaway at Costabella Tropical Beach Resort

Image
Costabella Tropical Beach Resort - Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, Philippines

Aside from our earlier family summer getaway, for the past two weeks, I have been blessed to be invited by my younger siblings to go with them on their summer getaway. Last Easter Sunday, my sister and brother-in-law invited me to go with them in Club Fort Med and just this week, my brother and sister-in-law invited me to join them on their anniversary summer getaway at Costabella Tropical Beach Resort, a high-end resort situated in Buyong, Lapulapu City, Cebu. The property's prices are a little higher compared to distant resorts in the southern and northern part of Cebu but the amenities, the security and the friendly staff make your stay at Costabella all worth it.

THE ROOMS
The resort has several rooms to accommodate you and most rooms have private balconies, a perfect spot to get a bird's eye view of the resort from atop (if you are staying on the 5th or 6th floor). The view of the sea from the top is specta…

Cebu Club Fort Med - Boljoon, Cebu, Philippines


Last Easter Sunday, my sister and brother-in-law of JCK Designs invited me and the rest of the group to Club Fort Med, a resort located in Arbor, Boljoon, Cebu just before the centuries-old church and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Municipality of Boljoon is at the tip of the Cebu provincial map just before the last two southernmost towns of Oslob and Santander. Travel time from Cebu City to Boljoon is between 3 to 3.5 hours depending on traffic.


FACILITIES: Some of Club Fort Med's facilities include: three (3) swimming pools, videoke, kayak, dive shop, volleyball court, function room, just to name a few. Though the resort does not have a shoreline, the beach is very impressive, the waters are crystal clear.

ROOMS: The resort has several rooms to accommodate you from Row House type to Single Detached to Casita. Just like the rest of the resorts everywhere, room rates are higher during summer (see table below). For day us…

Powerful Message of Jack Ma - Selling to Close Friends and Family

Image
Jack Ma once said, "When Selling to close friends and family, no matter how much you're selling to them, they will always feel you're earning their money, no matter how cheap you sell to them, they still wouldn't appreciate it."


There will always be people who do not care about your Costs, Time, Effort, they rather let other people cheat them, allowing others to earn, then supporting someone they know. Cause in their heart, they will always be thinking, "How much did he earn from me?" instead of "How much did he SAVE/MAKE for me?"
This is a classic example of a poor person's mentality!
How did the rich people become rich? One of the main reason is because they are willing to SUPPORT their associates business, taking care of one another's interests thus naturally they get back more.
Your Friends will in turn support you, thus the circle of wealth continues to grow and grow! 
Simple Logic, you will start to get rich once you understand it.

Venice Grand Canal Mall - Taguig City

Image
Venice Grand Canal Mall at McKinley Hill

The Venice Grand Canal Mall is situated inside the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The town square is inspired by the magnificence of Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy.


The Venice Grand Canal Mall is one of the newest shopping centers in Metro Manila. It has several restaurants where you can have your fill while enjoying the scenery that is Venice-inspired. 



Taguig, the city where the mall is situated is a highly urbanized city and is home to some of Metro Manila's skyscrapers aside from Makati CBD, Eastwood City and Ortigas Center.
GONDOLA RIDE The Gondola Ride is something that you don't want to miss when you pay a visit to  Venice Grand Canal Mall. As with all other places, I believe the fees are lesser on weekdays than on weekends. We get there on a Monday and the price per person was only 250 pesos (US$5).

GETTING THERE I am from Cebu and if I have to get there, I will go to any mall in Metro Manila and ri…

Binignit - perfect for the lenten season

Image
Binignit sa tiyan manggunit!

Binignit sa tiyan manggunit is an expression that our mother often say when we eat this food usually during the lenten season. The expression is a Cebuano term which means (not literally) Binignit is best served while it's hot.



Binignit is a popular delicacy here in Cebu, Philippines and is sought after during the Holy Week. Every year, I always expect someone in my family circle to cook this recipe. 

I can not quite remember who cooked binignit for us when I was younger and I know for sure it wasn't my mother (she was the laziest when it comes to cooking haha, sorry Nay). It could be either my older sisters or my father.
The basic ingredients of Binignit are glutinous or sticky rice (pilit), landang, coconut milk and brown sugar but most of us cook it with taro (gabi), purple yum (ube), sweet potato (kamote), banana (gardaba/saba), sago and jackfruit (langka). 
To learn how to cook Binignit, watch the video below:

Before going any further this is Liloan the town located in the central eastern part of Cebu next to the municipality of Consolacion and before the town of Compostela. This article is not about the other famous Liloan (the port location for your Cebu to Dumaguete trip and vice versa), a barangay in the municipality of Santander.

Liloan is another off the beaten track destination in Cebu but Liloan has a lot to offer and listed below are my top 5 tourist spots in the municipality.
