Summer heat is to hot to handle around the metro, sweating here and there with the combination of the pollution. So me and my cousin went on a trip to Cebu, Philippines to enjoy the heat at the beach! It’s only about an hour flight from Manila to Cebu so it’s a quick getaway!
We went to Shangri-la Mactan Spa and Resort, aside from it’s famous name I believe that Shangri-la Mactan has the most beautiful beach in Cebu not to mention their friendly staff and great service.
Please ignore my happy feet because I got carried away with view. 🙂
Good Morning World!
They also have kiddie pools and adult pools if your not into sands and salt water. The view is also superb with their own infinity pool and they also got a water massage on the side, truly perfect for relaxation.
A perfect clean blue pool with matching trees and flowers to relax you.
In case you get bored, they also offer several water sports such as jetski, scuba diving, para-sailing, snorkling and lot more!
When your hungry stomach decided to disturb you no worries there are plenty of food and beverage outlets near the beach and pool.
The other part of the beach which is nearer to the Ocean View rooms has a finer sand and less crowded than the one nearer on the bar.
Truly a perfect place for relaxation! You should give it a try!
Philippines maybe advertise as a 3rd world country but there are still plenty of great stuff to see and enjoy aside from the beaches and natural scenery. Wanna know why “It’s more fun in the Philippines.”
Last February 2012 Autoindustriya.com (AI) organized an event called Speedfest where car enthusiast and racers are invited to join. The event consist of Gymkhana, 1/4 mile run and mile run drag. So where in Philippines was this held? AI rented the whole Subic International Airport for the event, where runway was used for the mile runs and the plane docking area was used for the gymkhana. Anyway I’ll cut the chase, I’ll show you some of the photos that I took during the event.

The Ford GT could be the fastest car in Philippines. It ran 205 MPH in one mile making it the fastest car during the event.

Will these photos fit the slogan “It’s more fun in Philippines.” I’ll say hell yes! It was a successful event, there was no bad incident or accident during the event except for some blown engines but those are normal happenings in this kind of event. Are you looking for more of it? We all have to wait for the 2nd speedfest event maybe this last quarter of 2012! I hope you enjoyed it!

Oh yes it’s summer and we are feeling the sizzling heat of it! So I made a cool refreshing drink to beat up the heat!
In this recipe, we want to balance the flavor of the apple and orange so we use 3pcs of orange and 3pcs of apple.
I also added a sparkling lemon water to give it a slight lemony flavor!

and some honey to add sweetness. You can also use white sugar or syrup for alternative!
Lastly the ice cube all together into blender! The time of blending this ingredients together will depends on the consistency you want to have in your shake, mine takes about 40seconds blending it to the consistency that I want. Enjoy the summer heat! 🙂
