New Coffee Shop

It's not actually new new for they started doing business for several months now.  It's just recently that I was able to check out their shop at IT Park.  Just like the CoffeeCat shop in Davao, it also has the yogurt shop.  Ambiance is ok but quite dark for me.  It must have been that they were saving on electricity bills bit they only turned on the lights inside the shop when it was starting to get dark outside. I was only able to try out a slice of their chocolate Kahlua walnut cake.  It's downright chocolatey and surely hits the spot for me.  I would go back just for another piece of this cake.

The shop has free wifi access. Just ask for the password from the barista at the counter.  They do allow plugging in of laptops for charging however I only saw 1 outlet.  They do have other pastries, sandwiches and pasta dishes available.  I will have to go back to try it out.

Trip up North

A backlog post of our trip up north of Cebu.  Unlike the roads down south, the ones going north needs a lot of improvement.  The stretch of road from San Remegio down to the towns on the western side of the island are in need of repairs.  We even passed by some parts that were flooded. Paging Gov. Gwen!  If you want to reclaim Cebu's status as the best island destination in the Philippines, please please please improve this part of the province and aside from the roads, please install street lights too so that people will not hesitate traveling at night.

I forgot which town this was
an old house in the middle of sugar cane fields

San Remegio

 Not a lot of nice old houses and scenery can be seen in this western part of the island.  A lot of the areas is undeveloped.  There is a potential for ecotourism in this area so hopefully something will be done about it.  But then, the infrastructure must be fixed first in order to attract more people to go and visit this part of Cebu.

Not a lot of pictures for this trip.  Hopefully we will be able to go back there next time and spend some time enjoying the beach.
