Choose A Safe Canyoneering In Badian Cebu

Lately, Canyoning or locally known as Canyoneering became a Tourist attraction in the beautiful towns of Alegria and Badian. In line with it's fame as an extreme "Water Activity", Local Operators or Guides took this opportunity without even considering the harm and safety of their Guests or Tourists. Last weekend, Twelve Cebu Bloggers Society Members were invited by iCanyoneering Cebu in partnership with Kawasan Nature park Multi-purpose Cooperative to experience and travel the beautiful Canyons of Alegria and Badian.

So, why and how to choose a safe Canyoneering? Let’s first discuss the “why?”. In Badian, there's no specific rule from the Local Government Unit that guides the operators, guests, or tourists in relation to this activity, Canyoneering. Even the standardization or regularization of Fees are not being well observed by the Operators. While others give the package as PHP 800-900, some asks for PHP 1,300-1,500. Not to mention, other Guides would take a number of Guests (10-15) without even asking for a signed waiver. According to iCanyoneering Cebu, a standard ratio of Guide to Guests is 1:5, thus if you are in a group of 10, there should be at least Two Guides that will accompany you in the activity. In addition, before the event, the Guests should be oriented with the activity’s safety precautions, what and what-not to Dos. During the event, one must always follow what your Operator or Guides request you to do. Do not complain, always follow, remember that they know the area or canyons better than you do.

Now, how to choose a safe Canyoneering? Well, I tell you, this is not a bias recommendation, as the FaceCebu Author, Mark Monta have already experienced Canyoneering twice and his first was good but we commend to contact below Operators for a better and Safe Canyoneering Experience.

My dear Family, Relatives, Friends and Earthlings - this is a Hoax! It's been in Social Media again, Facebook, since the Year 2009 with other version from  Internet rumor site, then it came back in 2012 and again, January of this Year.

Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in Facebook's privacy policy. Better safe than sorry. As of September 28th 10:56 am Eastern standard time, I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future.

Minglanilla Market Supervisor Allegedly Harassed A Female Fruit Vendor

Oshinrose Reyes Fernandez, a fruit vendor, said she was threatened with a gun by Minglanilla Market Supervisor, Ramsay Sayson during a street argument in Minglanilla, Cebu. In her video posted yesterday (September 29), it looks like Mr. Sayson was trying to ask Fernandez to pull out her stuff out of the street.

Timex Philippines Toastmasters Hold Blog and Social Media Talk

"Hi guys, I'm Mark Monta and this afternoon, I will be talking about Basics, Basics on Blogging and Social Media" I started that Speaking engagement with more or less Twenty-three Timex Employees. Talking in front of people is not a new thing to me but last Thursday was different. I felt like I drank a galloon of coffee as I felt a sea of anxiety deep inside. Well, maybe it's because I know them and they know me. Third Quarter of last year, I was invited to talk in the First Southern Leyte Tourism Seminar. There were local Personalities and Senator Bongbong Marcos attended that event but it was easy and I mean I did very well. But last Thursday was different. I'm not sure why.

My Topic during the Talk

Participants of Knowledge Cafe Brew Of The Month : BLOG

Anyways, Thanks to Timex Philippines Toastmasters for preparing everything. It's not a big Seminar but sharing my knowledge and experiences to my Officemates is a big accomplishment to me. I divided the session into two topics, Blog and Social Media. Even though the event was entitled as "Knowledge Cafe Brew of the Month : Blog ", I took the initiative to at least introduce some basics of Social Media and its good benefits to Start-ups or Businesses. Timex participants are very active and the interaction was indeed fruitful. I learned something from their inquiries and most importantly, they gained details and information from my short talk.

And oh, before I forgot, I also featured some of my Timex Friends' Blogs. Check them out below....

Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar Opens Outlet Outside Singapore, Introduces in Cebu

Specializing on Filipino Dishes with a Singaporean Twist, Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar opened its door to Cebuanos last June 19, 2015. This Bistro Bar is located at the ground floor of Capitol Square Building, Escario, Cebu City. When asked why Monkey's Belly? Samuel Chaw, the Owner/Manager and Chef, confirmed that it's combination of his favorite Cebu's Lechon Belly and the mother company in Singapore, Monkey's Forehead Pte Ltd. Thus, the name Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar came up.

Now, check these featured Dishes and Drinks that we actually recommend to our online friends to try when you visit the Bar.

Peanut Butter Burger
It is definitely the one and only peanut butter burger available in Cebu. " Peanut butter is a personal favourite of mine and I believed that it can be eaten with Anything. I started working with the Patty, adjusting the favour profile of it to make sure that it suits the local taste bud. It took me a week to perfect the peanut butter sauce and this is definitely worth a try."

Golden Aburi Brocolli
This is FaceCebu.Net's Favorite. It makes use of the traditional Japanese method of Salmon Aburi, which involves torching of the Salmon. It gives the Brocolli a light smokinesss, which adds flavours to a simple Bricolli. For the sauce, Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar did its own balsamic dressing, with a touch of Red Sugar.

Spring Wings
Known as "Har Cheong Gai" in Singapore, it is deep fried with prawn paste and a secret recipe, which they did not share.

S'Mores Cocktail
S'mores is actually a contraction of a phase 'Some More'. It is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the US and recently the Canada, consisting of a roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two Graham cracker. S'mores Cocktail consists of waffle, marshmallow, chocolate ice cream/syrup and Graham Cracker.

Monkey's Special
This is Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar's Signature Drink - Chocolate and French Banana Puree blended into perfection. Served with Chocolated sticks, fried banana chips and more chocolate syrup

Monkey's Belly Bistro Bar is open from 5:00 PM - 2:00 AM, everyday from Monday to Sunday. You can also like their Facebook Page and send message for inquiries.
