Osmeña Peak Adventure

I never thought that after that suuuuuper tiring experience of climbing Osmeña Peak and traversing to Kawasan Falls after that I'd do it again. Yesss!! You heard me right. Can't believe that I'm doing it AGAIN!! >_<
But before we embark on that journey again, let me share to you my experience on the first one.
We gathered at South Bus Terminal, the starting line of our journey to O-Peak.
After about 2hrs of journey, we arrived at (skina) Mantalungon, Dalaguete.
From there, we took a Habal-Habal ride to the Mantalungon Market where we had our lunch and bought our provisions for dinner (Rice and Lechon Manok) and breakfast and lunch (Canned Goods) the next day.
After all were set and ready, we started our hike to the foot of Osmeña Peak.
It was a good thing that we have a friend who frequents the Peak so he acted as our Tour Guide. But if all of you are first timers looking for adventure, local kids will be very willing to help you find your way. Just give them a little token of appreciation after. You can also ask them to buy in the market or fetch water.
On the way to the Peak ☺
Finally we arrived at the foot of the Peak. Time to hitch those tents and get comfortable.
Cooking breakfast..
This ohhh-sooo-awesome view! All the stress in getting here, erased in an instant when I saw this view. It was all worth it. And seeing this now drives me to climb again. ☺

Itinerary
What to Bring
It is advisable to wear clothes that are comfortable. Please don't wear maong jeans or shorts. Also, as much as possible, waterproof everything that's inside your bag because we will never know when it'll rain. Just wrap everything in plastic before stuffing it in your bag. Lastly, the best trail food (for me) is chocolate! Hahaha.. There went the choco lover in me. ☺

Hope you have a wonderful climb. And wish us luck for our next climb. I hope it will all turn out fine. We are still looking for a stove and a cook set.. Oh myyyy!! >_<

A Day in Plantation Bay

Summer is now here!! Weeeee.. Time to bust those bikinis ladies. Hehe
If you are looking for a great way to spend your summer in the City, why not try one of our famous resorts, The Plantation Bay. For 2000php/head, you may enjoy the use of their facilities from 9am-5pm. (500php off per person if group of 20 or more)
So what did we enjoyed doing? Scroll below to find out. I must warn you though, this post is loaded with pictures. I couldn't help but share them all. Hehe
The Game Room
Enjoy Billiards, Table Tennis, Hockey, Kinect, and Arcade Games in the Game Room. You can even use their Gym but you need to be in proper gym clothes. You can use all of the facilities in the Game Room from 9am-5pm.
(Hahaha.. Spot the naning musayaw.. :))
Outdoor Activities
30minutes use of Bicycle
Best way to tour the whole area while figuring out where is where. 
They also have Tandem Bikes for you sweet couples out their who wants to test their trust for each other. Hehehe. It was scary at first but communication really is key. :)
Another way to see the whole resort is with this magical Kalesa Ride. 
A kiss for you Horsie! :*
And for the extreme sports enthusiasts, they have Wall Climbing and Archery.
Wall Climbing is open from 1pm-5pm. But the use of such facilities are dependent on the weather. When we went there, we were not able to try the Wall Climbing because it was drizzling rendering the wall unsafe to climb. Good thing it abated and the wind is not that strong so we got to try Archery. 
Ohhhhh! They have a Mini-Golf Course too. It took us almost 30mins to an hour to get the balls in the hole. What with our senseless swings. The balls went everywhere! Haha.
And lastly, you can use non-motorized aqua sports (nip floaters or kayaks) for 15mins. 
Access to all water lagoons and swimming pools are included too. Also, they lend you Towels so don't bother bringing one. *wink
Lunch is also included in the Day Tripper Package and is served from 12pm-2pm at Kilimanjaro Cafe. During Mondays-Saturdays, they only serve Set Lunch but on Sundays, they have a Lunch Buffet. One also gets a free 1-round of drinks. Bringing of food inside the resort is subject to corkage fee depending on the quantity and type of dish.
Here comes the selfie and groupie overload!! :))))
L-R: Say hi to Cata, DexTung, Bhadz, Eunice, Ada, Nicz, and me! :)
What a wonderful experience. Another one for the books. Because of this adventure, we somehow vowed that we'd visit all the resorts in Cebu one-by-one. #pagmaymoney Hehehe. But I think a Day in Plantation Bay is not enough for you to be fully satisfied with what they have to offer. You should budget your time well so can spend more time on the activities that you really want to do. As we say in our dialect, "Kuwang ra ang usa ka adlaw!" ("One day is not enough!"). Hinting on another trip? Hmmmm.. Maybe. *wink

P.S., Thanks to Eunice and UnbeliBaboy Photos for the pictures. :)
Here's a Video of our Trip in Plantation Bay! Enjoy! :)
