Must Visit – Cebu Taoist Temple

Aside from white sand beaches, Cebu also has a lot of well-known travel destinations that you can’t missed. And one of that is the Taoist Temple! And no worries, even if you’re not Chinese, you can definitely visit lol.

The Taoist Temple is located in Beverly Hills Subdivision in Lahug, Cebu. As the third and final destination of my first ever solo flight, I decided to spend it by visiting this must visit Cebu attraction. And just like my previous destination, I used public utility vehicle as my means of transportation. After my lunch at some fast food chain near Basilica del Santo Nino, I rode a jeepney bound to Lahug which has a number code of 17B. You can absolutely ride any jeepney as long as it has Lahug in its signboard and that’s not going to be a problem since …

JaVaMay Travel Series: Bohol, Philippines

For today’s travel post, I’m going to introduce to you the newest travel series that I will be featuring here in Blushing Geek starting today, the JaVaMay travel series! It came from: Ja from Janine, Va from Vanessa and ofcourse May for May. Our trio name started when we were in College (can also be shorten to JVM) and we still love use it ’til now. Aside from programming, our common interest is traveling. We had our personal blog before which caters our travels but because of the hectic schedule and most of us were lazy, we weren’t able to keep the blog updated. And since I’m the only one who still blogs, the writing was somewhat passed to me, aside ofcourse for being the group’s photographer lol.

For 2017, we all decided to go to my hometown, Bohol. Our first plan was actually to go to Continue Reading

Jumalon Butterfly Sanctuary and Art Gallery

Together with some friends, we planned to have a road trip around Cebu on Sunday but unfortunately, it was cancelled. Haaay! You know the excitement and then turned out it will not happen? Well, I’ve been there countless times my friend, so I thought I’m used to the feeling. But nah! So to cure my boiling desire to travel, I decided to just do it alone. And yep, hurray for my very first solo flight!

Hermit’s Cove: Aloguinsan’s Hidden Treasure

Aside from the scorching heat that is sometimes too hot to handle, summer is my favorite time of the year, but oops, stop being judgmental, haha. It’s my favorite time of the year right after Christmas season ofcourse (oha!). Summer is also a great excuse for some of us to go out and travel.

Through the booming online popularity of what Aloguinsan can offer, together with some colleagues, we decided to see for ourselves what the fuss this place is all about. Our first stop was the Bojo River Cruise which was so worth it and we really had a great time, I recommend you to try checking it out too. Next on our list is the Hermit’s Cove which is actually what I am looking forward right after we planned this trip.

Bojo River Cruise in Aloguinsan Cebu

Tired of the usual beach outing this holiday? How about trying an eco-cultural tour in Aloguinsan? It’s a small town along the southwestern coast of Cebu island which is gaining renown for its nature tours that advocate sustainable and responsible tourism.

Bojo is one of the 15 Barangays in Aloguinsan and since the river is located in the barangay, it was named as such. The term “Bojo” is actually a Spanish word which means “river ceiling”. But in Visayan dialect, it simply means a “hole” where the river exits the sea.

This eco-cultural tour is run by the Bojo Aloguinsan Ecotourism Association (BAETAS) and was funded by the local government unit which also serves as alternative source of income for the community. The ecotourism movement started in 2009 and started training 400 participants which comprises of Aloguinsan locals. And in 2015, they won the Best …

The Mesmerizing Beauty of Kawasan Falls in Cebu

With this scorching hot weather, all will agree that the best thing to release the unwanted heat was to go out. Oops, I don’t mean to say go out and kill yourself with the heat. What I mean is to go out and to enjoy yourself swimming on the beach or lounging at the pool. But that’s old news already. One great thing to do in this unbearable heat is to dip yourself on one ice-cold refreshing water. And since it’s too expensive to go to Antartica and swim with the Penguins, and taking a bath with a pail full of iced-water is too cheap, why not go swimming on a falls! And speaking of falls, your trip in Cebu will never be complete if you haven’t been or even heard of Badian’s mesmerizing Kawasan Falls. Haven’t been there? Then I pity you because …

Mag-aso Falls, Antequera Bohol

*the picture was taken after the 2013 Bohol earthquake so the structure of the falls is somewhat altered. Also, this year, Philippines suffered El Nino so maybe that’s the reason behind the one active waterfall instead of two.

Mag-aso Falls is one of Bohol’s natural treasures. It’s an eight-meter twin waterfalls that situated at the bottom of a deep gorge. It has this magical turquoise water surrounded by tall trees and wild plants including giant ferns. Unlike other highly developed falls, Mag-aso Falls has no sounds except the roaring water which makes this place meditative, calm and very natural.
