Oslob Old Church also known as Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Conception was one of the Oldest Churches in Cebu City. It was gutted by fire years ago leaving only the Spanish Architecture. When I visited the place it was already reconstructed through the efforts of the concerned locals. Locals believe that this century old church was intended as a station for pirates. Beside the church is their Ruins. These two Spanish Infrastructure that still exist in Oslob are very interesting to visit. There are a lot of benches, the Carabao grass carpeted in the park, splashing sound of the waves in near seashore, and breathtaking view of vast sea horizon. How to get there: Just take a Bus in Cebu City South Bus Terminal anytime because there's a lot of trip going/passing Oslob. Just inform the Driver to drop you off at Oslob Market. Enjoy the view! Enjoy your travel!

This waterfalls is one of the popular tour destinations for both local and foreign guests of the province because of its one of a kind characteristics that will make your stay exciting and excellent. Anyway, going to Badian you will pass the City of Carcar, Municipality of Barili and Dumanjug it is a long ride by the way. I assure that there will be no boring and dull moments because of the beautiful mountain-scape and coastal views along the way. You need to hike for at least 1.5KM of the semi concreted road to reach the waterfalls - a nature hike indeed! The waterfall is bluish and icy cold yet refreshing. However, there are a lot of people offering their services as a guide make sure to negotiate properly because some of them offer above standard rates. On your way up, the place is surrounded by luscious green trees and bushes that will serve as your shade. So less worry for your flawless skin!

My first month in my previous company was great even though there was a lot of work to do, deadlines to comply and customer/clients to satisfy. You also need to multitask and work for extended hours everyday just to draw a smirk smile on my boss's face. It results in exhausted body, muscle fatigue and stress but I didn't care and I didn't give up. Still, I didn't argue with my body's sufferings because that's what we need to do, just to survive and feed our hungry and thirsty soul on this planet and I know that it is a part of the company's package. It is the venue for our Company's Annual Team Building Activity. It is a well - planned activity to rejuvenate our body and mind, freshened up, commune with nature, boost the relationship and bonding with my co - employees and remove the tiring and stressful days/weeks/months we had. The place is cozy yet elegantly organized. You can ride/rent a motorcycle/ tricycle and inform the driver about this place and I know for sure that everyone knows this magnificent place (the Lapu Lapu City Residence).
