Creperie Paris, Cebu

IMG_20140712_191009a

I’m so glad that my friends brought me to a french Creperie in Cebu. (A crêpe or crepe is a type of very thin pancake, usually made from wheat flour (crêpes de Froment) or buckwheat flour (galettes).) The moment you arrived at the place, you can see a small version of the Eiffel Tower which light up during the nighttime. So cute, right?

Pizza Republic Cebu

IMG_3513a

Friday night = good food with good company. So last, last Friday. We went to Pizza Republic “Pick + Mix” by Giuseppe Genco. It’s an Italian restaurant that offers tasty pizza with a reasonable price. The thing is you can create you own 10-inch pizza. It has more than 60 toppings to choose. From cheeses to meat to vegetables, spices, herbs and a lot more, with a choice of white and red sauce. Amazing right??

 Yep!  That’s right. It’s only 245 pesos. Good food with good price. Just the right thing!

 The place has an industrial look that can accommodate TONS of people, like this.

 You can put anything you want. Just remember that the taste will depend on how you mix your pizza. Don’t blame anyone if it doesn’t taste good. Hahaha. Be experimental, just let your crazy mind do the job. The steps? Fall in line, pick + mix, then pay. As simple as that.

Explore Argao: Bugasok Falls

I never heard about this falls before,  but I like surprises myself, and this one got me excessively. The moment I knew that it was allowed to cliff jump, I said to my inner goddess “How am I supposed to miss this?” My heart beats so fast out of excitement and fear – which for the record I love to feel.

I believe that one of the best way to get here in Bugasok fall is to trek, but you can also ride the Habal-habal (motorcycle for hire) for easier transportation. But I would like to insist the trekking part, I intend to make the most of the adventure, why not do the most difficult part, right?

I love boodle fight! I always love this part of the trip. We always do in gawad kalinga, and here too? Love it!

Tried the Tuba (coconut toddy) for the very first time. It has a sweet and bittersweet taste. It’s kinda complicated. :P

Let me share what I experienced in this heart thumping event. While on the cliff, I felt my entire body shaking. My heart beats faster and slower at the same time, which I think, was really awesome. I like the feeling of being so afraid of something. I know, in my mind that I want to jump but my body tells me the opposite. What I knew was, the longer I waited to jump the more I’m afraid to. And I thought that in this moment, I gotta do this no matter what happens……and so I did it, here’s the video. :)

How I decided to jump in this 50ft waterfall? I gave myself two options. First, if I’m not going to jump, I’m going to DIE regretting it for my entire life, which in a calculation basis is 100%. Second, If I’m going to jump, I have a 50% chance that I’m going to die -literally, and a 50% chance to live. As an accounting student, I chose the 50% chance to live. HAHAHAHA.I don’t want to live a life full of “what ifs”. I want a life full of “oh wells”, make sense?

Some did  rappelling. I never tried this one. I’m still in the process convincing myself that it’s fine. :(

I simply want to thank the Vice Mayor of Argao for our equipment and for his hospitality. The tour guides and all the locals who were very kind and the gang who planned and made this adventure possible. THANK YOU!

After all the heart-pounding, mind-blowing experience. We walked over 4 hills. It was more than a 3-hour trek. My legs were crying for help but I can’t just call superman to lift me up. I need to finish this adventure. The thing is, after all the things we’ve done; the set off was the most exhausting part ever!

The whole thing was a heck of adventure. Trekked almost 15 kilometers, went to balay sa agta, jump in a 50ft waterfalls, rappelling, tried the tuba, boodle fights, and new friends. What can I say?I-WILL-DO-IT-AGAIN-AND-AGAIN. Will you join us next time?
