If you were expecting a KTV with underdressed sexy women, well you go search again in Google :D. Gimik Barkada KTV is also a family music lounge. So basically, this place is for everyone.
My barkada went out to show off our singing voice, but only for us to hear though.
The Gimik Barkada KTV sign outside. This ktv joint is located in Mango Square Gen. Maxilom Avenue.
I personally don’t like their entrance, it’s so dark. Probably they’re cutting costs. 😀
The hallway, leading to the ktv rooms. We transferred to another room because of the smell of smoke left by those who first occupied.
Hey, I did not sing this song ha.
Ako ning barkada nag kanta.
After our singing session, this was past 10:00 pm na.
Overall, this ktv joint is good, not too expensive and not too cheap either. Just prepare about 500 pesos for the rest of your barkada.
Gimik KTV’s contact number is 032-2530129
A mate of mine from Manila, had this not so good experience with a taxi driver here in Cebu.
Hi everyone, if ever you find yourself in Cebu City and in need of a cab, stay away from AirLand Taxis.
I forgot to take my luggage from the trunk of the car when we got off since we were hurrying for a client meeting. I called up the taxi dispatch (number from the receipt) within 30 mins and when they contacted the driver (on the radio), he told them straight up that the luggage is no longer there. He even recognized us since he told the dispatch, “yung tagalog?”
How he figured out that the luggage, which was in the trunk, within seconds of being asked was no longer there is beyond me, considering he was driving at the time.
I told the dispatcher that the luggage had no valuables, only my clothes since I will be in the city for a good 3 days. Still, the driver was adamant that the luggage was not in his taxi.
After the second call, I no longer bothered to pursue it since it was obvious that the driver had no plans of returning my bag.
Plate number: GXL-781
If you happen to have a father, brother, or friend for a taxi driver plying around the streets of Cebu City, please do remind them to be good. Let’s show other Filipinos that we are not thieves.
Even share this link to them.
Why you should minimize your habit of smoking, drinking, and eating too much Cebu lechon or any unhealthy foods.
1 of 4 monthly deaths in Central Visayas due to cardiovascular disease
CEBU CITY — Cardiovascular disease is a “silent killer” responsible for one of four deaths in Central Visayas every month, according to the Department of Health (DOH) 7.
DOH 7 described cardiovascular disease as a “silent killer” because it strikes anyone who is not health-conscious.
But it said the disease is highly preventable.
Dr. Juditha Tawatao of DOH 7 said the best way to prevent heart disease is to avoid all factors that may cause it.
People who smoke, are overweight, are heavy drinkers, have high cholesterol level, and have a family history of the disease are most likely to have cardiovascular disease.
A proper diet and eating nutritious food help, Tawatao said.
She said those who constantly exercise and have a health lifestyle would be least likely to have the disease.
In 2011, heart ailments and other cardiovascular diseases topped the causes of death in Cebu City.
Dr. Stella Ygona, Cebu City health officer, said there were 874 reported deaths last year caused by cardiovascular diseases.
The most common cardiovascular disease is hypertension.
Last May 19, World Hypertension Day was marked to increase awareness about the said disease.
Well, not really a full spiral stairs, I just lacked for words to call this part of Ayala Center Cebu.
This area of the mall is where I stay if I wait for somebody, a friend or aheem – date.
With this shot, I waited for my male barkadas dili chick ha. 😀
I always see this mural painting everytime I pass by this area in Banilad, near Metrobank. It’s time to take a photo of it.
I have no idea who painted this, probably made by a female artist.
Female artist named Mau?
With an alias of Karingkay Hardchick?
Beside the mural of Hardchick is this another beautifully done wall painting.
I had to try out Apurado. I don’t usually eat at malls because of the prices. I had to do it, so I can have something to write about in this blog. Haha.
Apurado is located at Robinson’s, in the Jones Avenue side.
Apurado is just beside the Midtown / Robinson’s parking entrance.
This is their menu.
Barbecue pork and chicken.
I ate paliya and fried bangus. This is just below P50, cheaper than the combo meal which is P59.
My first experience with Bread and Butter was in the 1990s in Banilad when they used to have a branch just outside Sto. Niño Village.
Then it got renewed when they have a branch in Mandaue City. Every time I go to work in Lapu-Lapu in the morning, I drop by to buy my favorite hotdog bread.
This branch is located in corner Gorordo Avenue and Escario Street.
This branch is located in corner Gorordo Avenue and Escario.
Their other breads are also equally tasty. Be sure to try it out if you have not eaten there yet.
I went to a friend’s house located in Capitol Site to borrow a camera lens.
Going to Capitol Site, one has to take OPRRA bound jeepney, or simply when you see a number 15 , that’s going to OPRRA.
The crossing, the Villalon street sign. The steel fence is part of Cebu Provincial Capitol premises.
OPRRA bound jeepney. For easy spotting just remember the number 15 painted on all sides of the vehicles.
Environmental inspired mural on the perimeter walls of Cebu Provincial Capitol.
The curve part going to OPRRA.
This is the area where my lives. This was taken in the morning. The photos below was taken in the afternoon after spending hours at my friend’s house.
This is Our Lady of Fatima chapel.
Further into the inner parts of Capitol Site.
This jeepney is going to the Jones Avenue or Carbon market.
These kids asked me to take photos of them.
Arbee’s bakeshop. They have good tasting breads.
The Capitol Site barangay (village) hall.
I ate past lunch, probably around 1:30pm. I decided to try this carenderia or could be categorized as low end restaurant.
Lola Eats Food House is located in M. Velez St. in Guadalupe. Getting here is easy, just ride a Banawa or Guadalupe bound jeepney.
Telephone number: (032) 254-8431, (032) 344 0387.
The dining area. I like it, not too cramp, not too spacious either. The chairs are of good quality.
Grilled chicken wings.
Lots of food to choose from.
This is just below 60 pesos. Two barbecues, one banana, one bottled water and one cup rice. The soup is free.
What’s my verdict? I only ate barbecue, but the taste was just okay.
This Thirsty? cart is located inside Ayala Center Cebu, in the second level, me thinks.
Me and my friends used to plan of getting a Thirsty? franchise more than 10 years ago. The last time we heard, the franchise fee was about 150,000. The original owner of the business also was the Osmeñas, forgot which clan.
I’m a fan of Thirsty. Whenever I’m in Manila or go back home to my hometown in Iligan, I make sure to sip a Thirsty shake.
I always get the regular size (45) cup.
Shot from the bench I was sitting on.
Here is my Thirsty? shake!
Apples and oranges.
They also have shakes for the health freak.
The prices of the shakes are too steep for me, that’s why I seldom get one, I think I only tried it once. Maybe I’ll get one once in a while, because of its health benefits.
