    A Quick Holiday Escapade at Casa Blanca by the Sea

    Hooray for a long weekend here in Cebu City! Friday, February 24, was declared a Holiday here in Cebu City to give way for the commemoration of the City’s 79th Charter Day. So because of that me and my officemates had a quick holiday escapade at a not-so-known resort in Olango Island, Lapu-Lapu City – Casa Blanca by the Sea. I have just recently discovered this resort on a post from Ella of WanderingElla, and was completely curious at how beautiful the place was after seeing photos of the resort. That’s why I suggested this place as we planned whereto. A day before we went to the resort, I called and inquired…

    Osmeña Peak Traverse to Kawasan Falls

    Hello everyone! As you can see, I have officially moved to a new domain (BIASAMBRANO.COM) because my previous domain (ROADBYBIA.COM) is expiring soon and I’ve decided to use my name as my new domain name. But still, this blog will continue to be titled as “Road By Bia”. Ever since I’ve first climbed Osmeña Peak, I was so eager to have another trekking experience and explore the outdoors and the beauty of our country’s nature. A few weeks ago, my officemates planned to have an outing around south of Cebu. So, one of our officemates suggested that we do something new which is to trek from Osmeña Peak to Kawasan.…

Niño, the patron Saint of the province of Cebu, held on the third Sunday of January. The festival’s main events include street dance competitions, the epic and colorful grand parade, and more. What’s so unique about this festival is that they have…

    Where to Eat: Yolks Flower Cafe + Cupcakery

    Me and my high school friends recently tried out a new famous flower cafe and Instagram-worthy place in town, Yolks Flower Cafe + Cupcakery. Ever since I first seen a shared post in Facebook about this new Cafe in Davao, I was dying to visit it as soon as I get home in Davao because who wouldn’t fall in love at first sight seeing this kind of flower-inspired cafe. Plus, since this place sells good food and dessert as per reviews. Good thing and luckily my friends wanted to visit it as well, so leggo! We were so overwhelmed as we arrived in the place because the interior is pretty full of flowers and yes…

    Where to Eat: 6 Must-Try Places/Food in Cebu 2016

    For the last 6 months, I never got a chance to check my weight on a weighing scale because we don’t have one in our apartment in Cebu.
