Cebu Beach Resort Review | Olango Island, Cebu - Casa Blanca by the Sea


When you are in Olango Island, Casa Blanca By The Sea Resort is there for you to offer a room to stay while exploring the whole island. You can enjoy and relax in the place without going somewhere just to swim at the white beach or pool. You can also play billiards and ride their pony free of charge. And of course, when it comes to food, you don't need to go somewhere you can have delicious island meals of your choice in their in-house restaurant. Speaking of cleanliness, the place is, in my opinion, it's very clean, neat and tidy.

What's in Olango Island before COVID-19 Pandemic?

What's in Olango Island before COVID-19 Pandemic?

Speaking of Olango Island, what comes directly to your mind first and foremost? A bunch of questions, right? Is there a white beach there? How to get there? Where to stay? What will be the tourist spots in the area? Questions like that will guide and motivate you on how to be there. For a solo or duo trip, going somewhere you wish to visit is I think probably the easiest way to travel. But for a family, it really needs planning ahead. A good thing to know, google is reachable for everyone as long as you're online. You can search right away, read reviews from influencers, watch relevant media, check flights, and search hotel/beach resort accommodations nearest to the island that you're going to visit.

Chocolate Chip Crinkles

 

 Chocolate Chip Crinkles.

Monday maund day but not anymore my two kids and I did something fun in the kitchen, baking chocolate chip crinkles in our way. At first, my son sifted the flour, and then all the dry ingredients were mixed like baking soda, baking powder, brown sugar, and chocolate chips by her. While she's mixing, Rain did combining the wet ingredients and smashing the banana along with the butter, milk, and egg. It took less than 30 minutes to make the chocolate batter along with the arguments between these two little help of mine. Then Tinker portioned the batter into six circles to the parchment paper while I baked them for 20 minutes under 180 degrees Celcius. After an hour, we came up with 21 pieces of Chocolate Chip Crinkles which then later my husband and I enjoyed it over a cup of coffee in the afternoon while the kids paired it a glass of fresh milk. 



On Mother's Day! ❤❤❤

Happy Mother's Day! ❤❤❤

It only takes a day to celebrate Mother's Day but honestly only few minutes to do so and a Lifetime Career to carry on. When I was a single, Mother's Day is not so big deal to me. Greet, hug, or sometimes give simple gifts to my Mama. I can't relate the feelings of being a mom way back then. Those moments as far as I can remember, I'm so sure that my mom was very happy for those simple acts of kindness and acknowledgement of her value to us. Now that I'm a mother, all I can say is that is not that "easy" huh! "Dili lalim ang mahimong inahan...for me it's 14 years and counting maybe as being a mother! Wow, Great! 

Lambug White Beach in Badian on Sembreak.

Going to the beach on Summer is everyone's destination to look for but hey we do it on Sembreak. Why? If you're that kind of being that's not a fan of many people around, then this is the best time to saunter that shoreline without many distractions on your sight. My family loves to go to the beach around this time of the year where the beach is not that too crowded. Our kids had this one week no class opportunity on sembreak. So we spent two days and one night at one of the white beaches in the South of Cebu. Lambug White Beach in Badian is one of the white beaches that you and your family will enjoy. 

Let's Roar on Halloween at MIMG.

Registration Fee is Php 300 inclusive with 1 Jollibee Meal and 1 Lotte bag per child. The party includes the appearance and participation of Mascot selected by the organizer, custome contest with prizes, parade inside the venue, and games. 

The Love of Barbecue at Mactan Alfresco.



On Sunday nights, we opt to dine out. Eating Barbecue of pork, chicken, and fish is the usual last minute option to escape the fast food restaurants. This time we ate barbecue at one of the food houses at Mactan Alfresco in Newtown Blvd, Lapu-Lapu City. We've been here many times usually after going to church. There are many food houses inside Mactan Alfresco like one preparing grilled foods, lechon, seafoods, coffee drinks, and beverages like milk teas. Within the area, there are Tamaraw jeepneys stationed on a prime spot with tables and chairs inside used for dining aside from the provision. 

Coaching our Kids on Sumobot Competitions.


When your son or daughter joins a competition, how do you feel as parents? This question suddenly popped out at the back of my mind. Ugh, well. Me as a mom, I felt nervous with mixed of feeling of excitement and fatigue. Same feelings with my hubby Terence as their Papa on one of our conversations. Just imagine, a month ago we went to Manila for the Philippine Robotics Olympiad 2019 then another Robotics Competition by DepEd LapuLapu Division in preparation of the incoming WRG 2020 (World Robot Games) last October 19 and Philippine Science Entrance Exam faithfully coincided with that schedule.

Forum Cafe, a Budget-Friendly Cafe!


If you want to write or work on something, a Cafe or Coffee Shop is a good place to settle down. While waiting our son, I spotted this tiny place named Forum Cafe few steps across the Southwestern University in Cebu City. It's around 9:30 am and this cafe opens around that time. I'm using Google Map to find other cafes nearby and this is open earlier compared to the others. The lady staff greeted me and took my order.
