Day tour at Fort San Pedro

Throughout my three years of stay here in Cebu, and my frequent visit at Pier 1, I have never really tried going or getting inside the adjacent plaza, Fort San Pedro. For one, in the previous years, it has been under renovation and was just opened recently, like last year, and for two, I’m too tired to go since I’m still not familiar with the routes of the jeep, which one to to take me there, and which one I should take to get back home.

So yesterday, after going to MV Logos Hope I asked Abby that we would tour around Fort San Pedro to see what really is inside those thick walls.

In the mood for Lakewood

(December 29, 2011)

For how many months now have I been hearing fuss about a newly developed resort in one municipality of the outskirts of Zamboanga del Sur. I’ve seen it couple times in Facebook and read updates in Twitter but never have I set foot in that said place. Alindahaw Lakeview Resort has been fascinating and catching everyone’s attention due to its increasing popularity not only with the locals but tourists alike, but since I am studying in Cebu as of the moment, and seldom do I go back to Pagadian (only if vacations), I was really not able to go there, not until last December 29, 2011.
