AYAHAY Escapade

We missed going out because of the pandemic. We stayed home for 2-3 years in order to be safe. And now that everything is going back to normal, we chose to visit different cafe’s , restaurant or tourist spots within Bukidnon.

For today, we went to Ayahay, which is located in Tabu-an, Kibangay, Lantapan Bukidnon. It is still a part of Mindanao, just in case you want to know where.

We ordered Beef Nachos, Garden Salad, Oreo Ice Cream Shake, Macchiato, Sikwate and Kape Arabica. Their ingredients are fresh, from the garden I guess , the beef nachos and garden salad has a taste different from what we usually order at the restaurant near us. Ate Chicay didn’t like her Oreo Ice Cream Shake because it doesn’t taste like what she usually order, a simple shake, but there are no shakes available other than this, with ice cream. I hope they serve one when we get back here someday. Kuya Jb ordered Macchiato and liked it. I went for Sikwate and Papa Norman chose Kape Arabica because it is what he likes most.

The place is so cold, typical Bukidnon area. We loved the ambiance and though it was far from our place, it was all worth it.

What Everyone Should Know About Fishing Boat Rental

Before you set out on a fishing charter or find a fishing boat rental Barnstable MA, you should know several things. First, find out the rules of the road. It’s a good idea to stay close to your hotel, as many fishing charters leave early in the morning, and it’s challenging to get across town before sunrise. A fishing charter also means you can sleep in.

Rules of the road

While fishing, follow the road rules. Every vessel must keep a proper watch at all times. You must drive slowly enough to avoid an accident regardless of the conditions. A steady bearing and diminishing range imply a collision danger. Decide whether or if there is a collision risk. If you encounter another boat head-on: According to boating laws, vessels approaching each other head-on must always pass port to port — or left to left, exactly as on the road. Remember that boaters must pass other vessels left to left or port to port. This is especially important in crowded harbors. Use your best judgment and be courteous to other boaters. The boater has the primary responsibility to operate safely. However, it’s also important to be aware of the laws in the region.

Rules of the water

If you are new to the water and have not spent much time on boats before, it might be wise to hire a captain. While you may get a discount for being early, the last thing you want is to get in trouble for being late. Therefore, it is better to arrive at the rental location 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time. Make sure that everyone on the boat wears life jackets, especially children.

The Sea Rules apply to any watercraft, whether you are renting a boat or fishing for recreational purposes. In addition, you will need to wear a life jacket on board the boat, and you must wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device (PFD) if you weigh thirty pounds or more. The failure to wear a PFD will result in a loss of rental fees and a docking order.

Refueling

Refueling your fishing boat when renting it is a necessity. Most rental companies provide a fueling station map for you to use. You can take your boat to the marina closest to your desired destination if you want to go further afield. You will need to pay for the fuel you use, which is usually about six to 10 gallons. The price is dependent on the size of your boat and the amount of fuel used.

Be sure that your boat is level. It is easier to pour fuel into a level boat, so make sure to adjust your bunks or trailer hitch before filling the tank. Position yourself to see the deck fill and hold the nozzle comfortably. If you have to strain to see the deck fill, you will likely spill the fuel. You can use an absorbent pad on the deck near the deck fill nozzle to avoid spills.

Our little family vacation at C Resort

We stayed at their Burgundy Room, C Resort’s Suite Room with an exclusive mini pool.This is a big room but it is actually designed as a couple room. It has a complimentary breakfast for 2.

The resort management allows, however, family or group accommodation since the room is really quite spacious. A family of 5 , we paid 800 pesos for an extra bed for Kuya Jb and an entrance fee of 200 pesos for ate Chicay. We weren’t asked to pay for our little Ella since the resort offers no charges for children below 4ft and a special discount for children whose height is a little over 4ft just like our ate Chicay.Their usual rate for an overnight stay is PhP9,900.00 but they are now offering a discounted price of PhP8,900.00.

The room is clean, spacious, and smells nice. Well, much of it is because of the smell of the salty sea breeze which is just so soothing and relaxing. The view is to die for. Room amenities include an exclusive mini pool, TV set, mini refrigerator, and an electric kettle. The room also has a hot shower. The CR is a bit small but its still fine.

The mini pool is clean and we love that it is exclusive. Just what we really need and looked for in a resort so we can still avoid being in close contact with other people while we take some time to relax and get away from our usual pandemic hideout. The pool can also be used any time during your stay. It has no time restrictions.

They also serve food and they even serve it in the room, upon request, which is much helpful for us, too. If you are looking for sand and sea, the beachfront at C Resort is not for you. You can still enjoy having some seawater “therapeutic bath” but the beachfront is filled with rocks the resort staff would tell you to “bathe at your own risk”. But if you’re just looking for the smell of salt and sea, the relaxing sound of the waves, and the reinvigorating sea breeze, I’m sure you will be satisfied with your stay in this resort just like us.

The staffs are nice, especially the kuya guards, and Fred and Gary (who helped us with our bags) and even those who served our food in the room. They are very polite and helpful.Overall, C Resort is just amazing!

People come to New York City for many reasons, as this city has so much excitement to offer. Manhattan is one of the great cities of the world, and it has a huge variety of cultural and entertainment options to take in. From great museums like The Metropolitan Museum of Art to The Whitney and The Guggenheim, the art and culture available in this city is second to none. There are art galleries on every corner, and lower Manhattan offers an amazing view of old New York mixed in with exciting new artistic and cultural offerings.

The Great Neighborhoods of New York

New York is a great walking city, and some visitors love to take the subway and pay a visit to the many amazing neighborhoods this great city has on offer. From 5th Avenue to Tribeca, Midtown to Greenwich Village, this city is like many countries all put together, and each has its own amazing heritage.

The entertainment on offer in New York is second to none, and the choices are seemingly endless. Some of the biggest stars in the world perform regularly in New York City, so there’s no shortage of great entertainment options on offer here. The NY cabaret scene offers shows in an intimate setting, with food and drink often available as part of the evening.

What To Do in Austin

Austin, Texas, is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States right now, and for good reason. The indie music scene, award winning restaurants, and eclectic vibe have been drawing increasingly bigger numbers of new residents to this hip Texas town each year. If you’re ready to call Austin, Texas, home, here what you should know to make your move go smoothly.

1) Avoid moving in mid-March. During this time of the year, the famous SXSW festival takes place all over Austin, so you’ll have to navigate more traffic than usual during your move. Instead, the SXSW festival might be the perfect time for one last quick visit before your big move: you can finalize your living plans in between sets of your favorite bands. In addition to the music scene, you can also attend film screenings, lectures by filmmakers, and art demonstrations.

2) Shop locally. Austin has embraced local artisans and independently owned businesses, so there’s no shortage of places to purchase goods in town. When you’re moving, you’ll need to know where the local furniture store is for new accessories, tables, and chairs. Support a locally owned place like Primitives Furniture for your solid wood furniture Austin TX.

3) Austin’s vibe is like no place you’ve ever been. The city’s unofficial slogan is “Keep Austin Weird,” and locals are serious about that venture. You’ll find murals and street art on the sides of independentally owned music shops and bakeries, outdoor festivals and concerts held every weekend of the year, and a welcoming community despite Austin’s growing size. The eclectic focus is working: Austin was named the second safest city in the United States in 2012, and won the best place to live from U.S. News and World Reports in 2017.

4) It’s a great city to call home if you love the outdoors. Because of its location, Austin enjoys a mild climate and comfortable temperatures year round. Residents can take advantage of this on Bulter Hike and Bike Trail, and the many hikes in the nearby Texas Hill Country. Watersports are available on the Colorado River, Lake Austin, and Lake Walter E. Long, all within a short distance of central Austin.

Our SEDA Centrio Hotel Experience via Traveloka

When travelling locally or abroad, it is always wise to book your hotel accommodation earlier to

be able to get the best deals on hotel rooms and get the best room available as well. As a

frequent traveler I have tried a lot of travel apps that I have learned from my friends. There are a

lot of choices but one of the best travel apps I have come to know is the Traveloka App because

they don’t have hidden charges. I have tried another app last year and was upset because when

we arrived at the hotel, we paid for a tax fee that I thought was already included in our booking

thinking that we have saved money but then again, it wasn’t the case.

So this time, I made sure that there will be no additional charge or any hidden charges upon

check-in and I am glad that Traveloka delivered.

Let me share with you our SEDA Centrio experience that we booked via Traveloka.
I am a cheapskate and I admit that, I don’t usually spend on hotel rooms during business trips

because I don’t spend huge amount of time inside the hotel. But when we are with the kids, we

make sure we booked big hotel rooms and hotel with swimming pools so the kids will enjoy it.

We have not tried SEDA Centrio before because it is one of the most expensive business hotels

available in Cagayan de Oro City. I am glad that I have learned about Traveloka and was able

to book through them because they have huge discounts for bookings and no additional

charges.

I booked for a CLUB type of room which has a lot of perks compared to other rooms like

complimentary use of DVD Player (on request) and complimentary late check-out until 2:00pm.

The room is spacious and it has 2 beds (which is perfect because we have 2 kids). SEDA

Centrio is sure a business hotel, they have a big working table with a desk lamp and a swivel

chair.
I can work if I want to but I am here for a staycation with the kids so I stick to the plan.

My kids favor beautiful bathrooms and their wish was granted. SEDA Centrio has a bathroom

that fits their requirement. It has toiletries that we can use, I left ours at home. And the Flat

Screen TV was enormous.

I was able to book this staycation to a beautiful hotel and like me, you can have this room for a

lesser price. Just download the Traveloka App in your App Store for free. Sign-up and you can

find a lot of choices anywhere in the Philippines and international.

First, tap “Hotels” then key in your destination, desired dates, how many days of hotel stay and

how many rooms you would like to get. The prices that Traveloka gives you are final, no hidden

charges or extra fees upon check-in, I can assure you about that.


After that, you have to input your contact details and special requests after choosing your hotel

accommodation.
Another great thing is that there are many different payment methods

available. You can pay through bayad centers, 711 stores, banks or credit cards. Traveloka will

then give you a voucher, and send a copy through your email ad and will text you for details

about your booking.



Upon check-in, just bring with you your Valid ID and your voucher (maybe printed or not, the

hotels honors that). I love Traveloka because they offer a lot of discounts, you can find promo

codes online, and save a lot of money by booking through them. You can input the promo code

before payment and it will automatically deduct a portion of it from the booking you have find.

What are you waiting for? Download the Traveloka App now and have the staycation you

always dreamed of.

To Choose Group or Private Safaris in Tanzania?

The planning and selling of tours / itenararies by the safaris in Tanzania are usually done 2 calendar years ahead. Thus, the details of it are already considered as fixed and cannot be adjusted such as the number of days on safari, hotel and lodge choices, meals and other details. What is left for the traveller to decide is up to only the safari start date of the travel or adventure. Another choice is if you go for group or private safaris in Tanzania.

Group Safaris in Tanzania

As expected, group safaris are less expensive than the private ones because of the wholesale deals, hotel group discounts and regular schedule reservations. If this option is selected, the process involves first selecting a safari operator and an itinerary. An email then is needed to be sent to the operators for a total costs requests. Sometimes, group safaris in Tanzania can be changed into a private involving a small additional fee. The cost differences would be on the type of accommodation and alternate park routes.

Private Safaris in Tanzania

The best thing about private safaris is its customized itinerary modified according to the participant’s interests and choices unlike from what is mentioned earlier. It includes a safari guide and 4WD vehicle for personal and exclusive use. 1 passenger or 2 can already avail this one.

The big advantage of private safaris in Tanzania is one is not depending on a rigid time schedule. Such is perfect for a novice explorer as it gives them solitude and freedom and away from problems such as “worrying of taken / available seats”.
