Palace in the Sky + Picnic Grove


It occurred to me that I still have a lot of things to share to you. A lot of places visited and things experienced that I want you to know. I wish I had the luxury of time to write on this blog every night. But heaven knows how slow my internet connection is. What a bummer.


Anyways, before I go off topic, another adventure that I want to share to you is our second day in Tagaytay.
We went to the famous Palace in the Sky and Picnic Grove. One's travel to Tagaytay won't be complete without visiting these parks.











Why, hello there Mr. Taal Volcano! :)




My wish of riding in a horse granted. 
Horseback Riding - 250Php/hour


Sorry, but I need to cut this short. Another adventure awaits me tomorrow. Super excited. Hehe. I hope we can survive trekking up to Osmena Peak then traversing to Kawasan Falls. Weather, please cooperate. Please. May God Bless Us!

Have a good night! :)

Sky Ranch


Oh Tagaytay, what sweet memories you hold. Finally, after months of planning the perfect itinerary and saving up of  for pocket money, I now have the best memories to share with you.


This was our first out of town trip together so you can only imagine how excited we were.


And when in Tagaytay, don't forget to visit Sky Ranch and ride in the biggest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines, the Sky Eye.



Admission Fee:
Weekdays - 50Php
Weekends & Holidays - 80Php


It was both scary and amazing being up there on the top. Admittedly, I am a scaredy-cat when it comes to heights but my fears went away when I saw the amazing view. A 10 minute ride equals an adventure of a lifetime.



But mind you, there are a lot of rides that you can enjoy in the Sky Ranch like:

Sky Eye - 150Php
Sky Cruiser - 100Php
Super Viking - 100Php
Nessi Coaster - 50Php
Snail Attack - 50Php
Carousel - 50Php
Express Train - 80Php
Wonder Flight - 50Php
Red Baron - 50Php
Mini Viking - 50Php
Sky Jump - 80Php
Bubble-O-Fun - 50Php
Jump N Play - 150Php (1hr), 100Php (30mins), 50Php (15mins)




The Verdict 

It was a very fun experience. There are a lot of things that you can do and try like horseback riding or zipline. But one should not miss the Sky Eye experience when visiting Sky Ranch.  You may also opt to rent a cottage, have a picnic and enjoy the Tagaytay Breeze if you are not that adventurous. But if you are a foodie like me, don't worry because there are a lot of restaurants lined up on the entrance's side as well as food stalls in the food court area. You will never get hungry. Hehe. 

Overall, I am very happy that I get to have this experience. This is surely one for the books.

Kuya J

This blog is slowly turning into a Food Blog without  my intention. Our love for food is very evident and it is slowly reflecting in our waistlines. Haha


But it doesn't matter, as long as we get fat together. Hehe 
(Pero exercise din pag may time :))


And one item off our bucket list is Kuya J Restaurant. An amusing story, my boyfriend took me here for dinner to celebrate our Monthsary. He called the restaurant ahead to make a reservation. By the time that we were driving up to Kuya J, we passed by Simply J's (another restaurant that I hope we can visit someday). As expected, he got confused as to where he had made the reservation. Haha. 


We ordered the Grilled Pork Belly which costed us 125Php.


Iced Tea (glass) - 35Php


And Boneless Chicken Barbecue which is 115Php per serving.



The Verdict

Food: They have a wide array of menu for the budget. It is very affordable and the budget friendly ones doesn't disappoint. I love the tenderness of the Boneless Chicken and we weren't expecting a good amount of serving for a 125Php Grilled Pork Belly. For only 500Php, you can already have a nice and romantic date with your loved one.

Location: Escario Corner Tojong Street, Kamputhaw, Cebu City. It is near Ayala Center Cebu. It is along Parklane Hotel (if I am not mistaken) and that road along Calda Pizza. They also have a branch at SM City Cebu and SM Consolacion.

Operating Hours: Monday - Saturday 11:00am - 3:00pm, 6:00pm - 10:00pm

Pizza Republic "Pick + Mix" by Giuseppe Genco


Just opened last June 1, this place has been getting the craze lately. The parking lot has been full and people have been flocking to try and make their own Pizza in Pizza Republic Pick + Mix by Giuseppe Genco.

Groupie-groupie while waiting in Line. :)


It is a new Pizza House in Cebu where you get to decide what toppings you want on your pizza. And a bonus part is you get to see the process.



As a Product Engineer, I can totally relate to the Production and the Assembly Line. Although what they make is totally different from what we manufacture, it is nice to know that the system is similar in some ways.


So to start the creation of your very own pizza, let's start with the dough.


The dough is about 10 inches somewhat thin but not very thin.


After the dough has been kneaded, you can now choose your sauce.
They have Red Sauce and White Sauce available. You can opt to have it all Red or all White or if you are that adventurous, you can also have it Half-Red or Half-White. 


And the selection of toppings begin. First off, the cheese. The Mozzarella Cheese, of course, should not be forgotten but you can add Cream Cheese, Parmesan Cheese, Gorgonzola and White Cheese as well.


Next stop, the meats. You can choose from Italian Garlic, Garlic Sausage, Shublig, Cheese Sausage, Hungarian, Corned Beef, Frankfurter, Tuna, Salami, Beef Ham and many more.



After that is the veges but I skipped that part. Haha. You can add Bell Peppers, Onions, Tomatoes, Anchovies, and many more that I don't care to remember. Hehe


Lastly, you can boost the flavor by adding Barbeque Sauce, Chilli Sauce, Pesto, Oregano and some other herbs and spices.


Juices - 45php



And tadaa.. My very own pizza. :)





The Verdict
Food: Because you're the one who picked the toppings, you are solely responsible for its taste. But it is very filling and is okay to share although, if you have a very big appetite, one 10inch pizza will just be enough for you. For 245php only, it is quite affordable what with all the toppings that you can have. No additional charge for any additional toppings whatsoever. Plus you get to enjoy picking. A tip though, don't get over excited and put everything in your pizza. You also have to keep in mind that the individual taste of your toppings will complement as a whole. And, if you put a lot, your dough might not be able to take the weight. Hehe

Location: Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City. If you came from IT Park, you will see it on your right. It is located in that same corner as Mang-Inasal.

Operating Hours: Monday - Sundays from 11:00am to 10:00pm
