Food and Blindfolds at Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa

I had the most unique food tasting experience on my special day together with the rest of the food crawlers.

Everyone was excited for our second day’s second stop. We knew we were in for a good treat at Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa. A tropical paradise in the middle of a busy city that welcomes its guests with breathtaking scenery. Shangri-la Resort and Spa is a perfect place to unwind and just forget about the hustle and bustle the city life brings.

Since we were in a Food Crawl, of course it’s quite obvious that we look forward to the foods we are about to taste and experience. Shangri-la didn’t fail to excite us as they gave us a one of a kind food tasting experience!

Cebu Food Crawl 2016 : Day 2 Happy Birthday To ME

OOTD Birthday

August 27 and it’s day 2 of the Food Crawl and I am excited, not just of our itinerary of the day but also because it’s my special day a.k.a my birthday! This is one of the reasons actually why I decided to join the food crawl because I thought of celebrating my birthday out of town for a change. I am not actually big with birthdays but since the food crawl schedule fell within my birthdate so I thought, what the heck! why not go? And again, I am happy that I did! I definitely had a blast.

So on day 2, we started the day a bit early and we were on for a plant tour at Profood International Corporation then a quick stop at Jasmin Cafe before heading to Shangrila Hotel and Resort for our one of a kind food adventure. We also went to for a food experience at District 53rd then capped off the night for spicy wings treat for dinner at Gibbs Hot Wings.


Alright, let’s start with the OOTD (Outfit of the Day). Some of you might’ve seen this outfit before since I blogged about it few weeks back – How to Wear Stripes. I decided to sport a casual, a little sexy, and comfy look so I wore my stripes long dress again and paired it with my merrell slipons.

The Cebu Food Crawl 2016 Experience : Day 1

Going to the Cebu Food Crawl 2016 is one of the few best decisions I’ve ever made! To be honest I was a bit hesitant to join mainly because I know it’s going to be a LOT of EATING and some of you guys know how keen I am with my diet. But I guess I was meant to be there because things fell right into its places, my worries related to the tour were each answered a week before the actual food crawl so Yes, I finally filled up the form and confirmed with my blogger friends here in CDO so we can make the necessary arrangements for the tour.

The Cebu Food Crawl aimed to take its participants to the best Bisaya na Food experience around the city of Cebu. And true enough, the food crawl did not disappoint! Let me take you with me as I reminisce the amazing experience! I’ll share Day 1 here and do check out this blog for the remaining 3 days gastronomic adventure.

Shoni of Munch Trip and I actually arrived in Cebu a night before the food crawl (August 26) and we got to meet a fellow blogger from Manila who was so kind enough to let me crash into her temporary place for the night too! Thank you Melanie of Matakaw na Bata :D.

Day 1


August 26, that was Friday, sun is up, the weather was great, a little humid but no worries, I got the perfect OOTD (which I will be sharing a little later in this post), finally I met the other bloggers from Luzon and Visayas, and of the course the team behind the Cebu Food Crawl 2016 headed by Atty. Ethelbert Ouano.

Our first stop was at Mactan Alfresco at The Mactan Newtown, a 500-seater covered food strip where every foodie and tourist will have the opportunity to experience delectable foods from Cebu’s finest restaurants and dining joints. Definitely the highlight is the Lechon Pit where it allows the customers to see the preparation of the roasted pig before it is chopped and served.

Aside from the lechon we were also served yummy dishes courtesy of the concessionaires namely Ayer’s lechon, Ana’s lechon, Oyster Bay, Orange Karenderia, Manang Sayong, Choobi Choobi, Meximama, and Muvanz.
