Though seemingly terrifying like of the Battle of Thermopylae, according to some outdoor enthusiasts, Spartan Trail got nothing to do with such bloody war led by King Leonidas. Rather, it got its name from an outdoor group that bushwhacked the trail from Banawa to Pamutan in the early hiking days.
Maybe the reason why I’m so fascinated with the mountains is because I spent most of my life in the coasts of Cebu. Going to the highlands is but a novel idea for someone whose weekends were once filled with quick trips to the nearby public beaches of Talisay, learning how to swim, and getting several shades darker. My memory usually fails me but I know by heart how fun it was while it lasted – the early morning commotions, the kamote, kinilaw, nilagang saging, and grilled pork and fish prepared by the adults, the engine roar of the tricycle that would bring us to the beach, and the endless games we played on the waters.
I’ve spent half of my life in the glimmer of Cebu City’s uptown. I’ve witnessed how it evolved from clubs and bars up to the food hub that it is right now. But despite spending over a decade in this part of the city, there are still many places that I haven’t been to – just like Casa Verde Cebu.

Once you get a taste how wonderful it is to chase waterfalls in Cebu, you’ll eventually be craving for more. Aside from wonderful beaches, Cebu is also a home to grandiose bodies of water, waiting […]
A Yellow Lake in Cebu? Sounds crazy right? This was also our initial reaction upon hearing those words from the locals whom we interacted during our short trip around Cebu. But well, blessed are the curious for they will have adventures. From Lake Kadamon, we took an uphill hike going to a seemingly barren area. The environment was rather peculiar. The place was so humid. The trees and plants growing looked really dry. And the soil was colored… yellow! No wonder, the locals described it as “magical”. We followed the trails going to an open area and saw the Yellow Lake that they were talking about.
