Manggahan Restobar in Cebu City


Foodtrip is my favorite activity with friends. Be it a home cooked food, fastfood, etc., as long as we share it with friends, spice up with all the gossips, talks and bunch of laughters, perfect! How about mixing it all together? Eating in the backyard with home cooked food with a background music (sounds good, right?). But the thought of doing it at home requires more effort and will eat more time (we're all working girls, you know!hahaha!). So, we looked for a place where we can do it, but of course it must be within our budget.

Our Miss Organizer Katarina suggested this place "Manggahan" (Mangga is a local term for Mango fruit).
 Their specialties are sea foods; their pancit is delicious. Here's the menu.
 Here are our orders...
 
That's crocodile sisig...We were throwing jokes that we're eating Lolong's meat (Lolong was the biggest crocodile in the world found in Agusan, Philippines but unfortunately passed away months ago because of pneumonia :( ).
 I can't remember other orders we have that night. All I can remember was that we all enjoyed the food; the staffs were accommodating and most importantly we enjoyed each others' company.
 After the feast...LOL!
It's named Manggahan because you'll eat under mango trees while music is being played as background or being sung by a live band inside.

Another set of friends...All full and happy...Getting ready for the upcoming videoke challenge. Another feastful bonding with friends and new place discovered by The Thrifty Wanderer. Manggahan in  Cebu...CHECK!

EDGE COASTER at Cebu Crown Regency Hotel

Are you an adventure seeker? Or you wanted to test your fear? Try the Cebu Crown Regency Hotel Sky Adventures. You may go for Edge Coaster or their Skywalk adventure. For 750php for both rides.
It was my first month here in Cebu when i was invited by my cousins to try the ride. 
 On the elevator up to the 27th floor.
While waiting for our turn...
 This is where you claim your certificates, pay for the pictures that cost 250php each and some souvenirs.
Posing for the camera though our knees were shaking. Rides is by two and one has the control of the tilting of the machine, could it be 60 degrees or 30 or any degrees you want...wheeew!!!
 As you can see I'm wearing a different shirt, the photo was the second ride experience...
 The view from the top and edge of the building. Scary...adrenaline rush...You'll experience your spirit screaming out of fear...waaaaahhhhhh!!!

 Imagine you're on top and edge of that building. The tallest building in Cebu.
 After that adventurous ride and conquering your fear, you'll receive a certificate.
You can also watch their 4D adventure...I'm not sure how much it cost right now. It was a funny adventure!

 You can try their telescope to savor the view of the city lights for only 10 php.
And do not forget to take a picture of this famous sign. The thrifty wanderer is looking back on her old yet memorable adventures.

Obong Spring Dalaguete, Cebu City

Welcome to Obong Spring, located in Dalaguete  south of Cebu City. 2 hours travel by bus from the city. The spring is just along the highway.

Entrance fee is just 5 pesos.
Believe it or not we went there from a birthday party at Mantalungon and just the three of us.
No cottages for rent, so we just left our things in one corner. Pics was taken by the "habal-habal" driver who volunteered to looked after our things and took pictures of us.
Oh, ha...Thats Jen me and Khem...

The driver was busy taking pictures of us.
Khem enjoying the cold water.

Crystal clear cold water...
After our 30minutes swimming. While waiting for a bus back to the city.
While Khem and I were busy eating...Jen was busy talking to his special someone over the phone.
Our ride back home...back to reality...After the great adventures with girls.
