Pandanon Island @ Cebu March 2014

Pandanon Island is sandwiched between Cebu and Bohol and is one of many islands that can be visited amongst Cebu's various island hopping services.

The best place to go there is always during the early part of the morning. Why? Take the photos for example. I was lucky there were not that many people strolling on the shores because of the hot weather.

Most were inside the huts so I was very lucky and fortunate to take some photos of the shoreline without any crowd.

While its beach may not boast that many fish when you go snorkeling, it does have its fair share of sea creatures that are fun to watch.

Heck, I will never forget this experience because after this and the next stop we went to which was the fish sanctuary, my neck hurt like hell from moving left and right looking at the wondrous sea creatures lurking beneath.

Murray's New Orleans Bourbon Street Ribs @ Ayala Cebu New Wing September 2014

The New Orleans restaurant area located on the rooftop of Ayala Center Cebu's  new wing is packed with good looking and sexy staffs.


The place is still new and I can tell judging by how they move around that they are still new at it and not used to being looked at many times in and out of the restaurant area.

New Orleans offers quite a good lineup of different cuisine. Their prices are comparable to that of TGIF and Italiannis. 

The following were what we ordered:

New Orleans Pasta Etoufee PHP310 - this may depend on one's preference. My wife was not satisfied with it but I was. I loved the spicy flavor. 

New Orleans Black Tuna PHP295 - I think this is quite expensive considering it does not even come with rice. What you see is what you get. Although I have to say I loved how the tuna was flavored and prepared. Plus those huge onions are always a heavenly sight to me ;).

New Orleans Chicken Jambalaya - I forgot the price for this one though but I think it costs around PHP350. This was a pretty good order. While the rice content is not as much as Irie Gastropubliko's version, they have more mixes than the rice. A must try!

Chopchop Ranch Salad - I do not know why they call this Chopchop but the salad was pretty good. This order can be in half or full. The amount of meat, fruit and others that were mixed with the vegetable was okay. Plus the there was something in the sauce that made me want to eat more. I just could not figure out what. And yes, I forgot to ask the staff about it. LOL!

Rockefeller Baked Oyster - yummy! What more can I say?!

Service was okay. I think I will give them a chance since the establishment is still new. The staff who entertained us did not inform us that the Black Tune order does not come with rice so it was a bad move considering we were already hungry and we were never informed about it.

Luckily, it is only rice so it did not take long for them to give us one.

Overall, it was a hearty meal we had during our first time there. And it probably won't be the last ;).

Grand Majestic Food @ Grand Convention Seminar Hall August 2014

This ain't buffet but for any kind of seminars held at the new Grand Convention Center, the menu is taken from the Grand Majestic's menu.

One of the seminars I attended had a very tasty lineup treat for dinner. They had chocolate truffle cake, pork belly, fish fillet, pasta, broccoli and vegetable and grilled chicken.

I asked one of the staff where they ordered the chocolate truffle cake because it was delicious. I was surprised when I was told all the food was prepared by Grand Majestic.

Then I thought, no surprise there. Their buffet of main course, appetizers and desserts is heavenly!

The old Grand Majestic used to serve mainly Chinese cuisine but the new Grand Majestic serves totally different cuisine every day.
