Agua Villa Exclusive Resort

 Agua Villa Resort is an exclusive resort located in Panalipan, Catmon, Cebu.  It is about an hour drive going up north. You can rent the whole place for only 10,000 (overnight) and that is already good for 10 to 15 people with accommodation and facilities included already.

We went to the place for our team building. This time, I was not able to travel with my girlfriend because of our schedules. Anyways, the place is indeed a good venue for group outing, team buildings, small group reunions, and even family outing. They have a kitchen where you can cook your meals, indoor and outdoor dining area; they also have parking space enough for two cars or van; the place has a gate so it is quite safe; they have a living room where you can have your siesta; they have 2 air conditioned room and 1 big dorm-type room. The whole place is really nice and I can say that it is very “sulit” having it for only 10,000 bux. If you are a group of 15 then the damage would only be 600 plus per person. Not bad at all for such experience.

How To Get There:  From Cebu City, take the North bound bus in North bus terminal. Just tell the bus attendant to drop you off at the said resort in Panalipan, Catmon; just a few kilometers from Carmen. Fare would be 65 php as of this posting.

Here are some shots of the place.  (Photo Credits to Moc and Flesy.)

This is how it looks like outside the resort:      The resort is just along the way so it is not that hard to locate. It is on the right side if you are going up north from the city.

Snapshots of Sinulog 2014

 This is my second time to write about a Sinulog Festival in my blog.  I just can’t stop myself in sharing to you people the elegance of this event this year. Sinulog 2014 was a blast and so far, it is the most peaceful sinulog that I have ever witnessed. Last year’s sinulog was a bit wild, but Sinulog 2014 was a whole lot more of a crowd. Each year, sinulog’s crowd would evolve. This year, we just had the craziest street party. It is where social statuses is of no regard. It is where the less-fortunate people, the middle class, and the elites would meet and just be friends and have fun in a clean way.

It is the only day where Cebuanos would be “AFK” and just be out in the streets. It is the time where real Chats would happen; not just facebook chats or any IMs. It is where the real social networking happens.

It is so nice to see that even though technology tends to ruin the social life of Cebuanos, there would be a day where we would just forget facebook or the internet just to meet real people outside the streets!

Here are some of Sinulog 2014’s sneak peek:    you wouldn’t wanna drive here for sure!

 these people are dancing without music. just all of them chanting and shouting “pit senyor!”

The Best Way To Avoid the Crowd! lol

The Parade:    Good thing we got a good view from here.

          As Always, Sinulog 2014 has been so colorful and lively.

Sinulog would not be the grandest festival in the Philippines if there is nothing about it. Truly, it offers you the best experience of party rockin’. There were about 4 million estimated tourists who flocked the Metro for the celebration. Next year, it would be even better. So now you have the glimpse of what sinulog is, you better not miss the next Sinulog! And oh, in case you did not know, it is always on the third Sunday of January. See you next year!
