Sizzling Pepper Steak in Ayala Center Cebu

Hungry stomach, after hours of mall strolling, we went to look for a tasty and new restaurant that don't exist in Davao City. At least we could try a new cuisine in Cebu City. There a lot to try in Ayala Center Cebu to feed your stomach. We first went to a Romania cuisine but then it's so full that waiters and waitress cannot even get our orders.

So we moved to another restaurant and found Sizzling Pepper Steak. They serve beef steak, spicy pork sizzling for an affordable price. The taste - yes delicious, tasty, mouthwatering and well-seasoned. When I research about the Sizzling Pepper Steak Restaurant, it was said to be the best sizzling pepper steak in town - no wonder.

Aside from that, they have also a warm welcoming staffs. The ambiance is cool, relaxing perfect for smoky dishes.

Skywalk Extreme and Edge Coaster - Sky Experience Adventure at Crown Regency Hotel & Towers, Cebu City

Acrophobia or fear of heights, do you have that? Well, if you do have, I guess experiencing Skywalk Extreme and Edge Coaster will be the most pretty way to overcome your fear. Staying a couple of days in Cebu City, we have done a lot of things, adventures and mall tours.

Skywalk Extreme - Sky Experience Adventure in Crown Regency Hotel & Towers, Cebu City



We first try the Skywalk Extreme in Crown Regency Hotel and Towers. Crown Regency Hotel has 37 floors and it is the tallest hotel in Cebu City. From the 37th floor is where we are about to experience sky adventure. I have a friend with me and he do have an acrophobia but was amazed because he's the one who insisted to try this. (Thank you Kai for a fun sky adventure!)



When we get there, the stuffs were so accommodating, I let him handle my camera so that he can took pictures for us. It was indeed breathtaking outside, specially at night. You can see almost whole Cebu City. There's a guitar shape highway fronting the Crown Regency Hotel when you look down. A best experience and you must try it too.



Going back to Skywalk Extreme, it's not literary you'll swing on the edge facing the ground from 37th floor, that's really what I am expecting when we plan to try Skywalk Extreme but then you'll just have to pass the subway outside wearing body harness. It's not really that scary - good for the heart as they've said.

Edge Coaster - 2nd Sky Experience Adventure in Crown Regency Hotel & Towers, Cebu City

The second sky adventure ride we experience was the Edge Coaster. Where all you need to do is to sit on the coaster with body harness locked. When engine starts, the coaster will pull half down which makes you lean facing downwards. It's a scary feeling because it seems like you'll be falling. Then you have the control to take it back to normal position or to elevate it again until you reach the next corner. It's just 10-15 minutes Edge Coaster ride.



A total of Php750.00 to experience Skywalk Extreme and Edge Coaster with souvenir and certificate. There are photographers that will took pictures while you enjoy the rides. Each picture will cost Php200.00. It's up to you if you'll get those pictures.

Campo Agua Resort and Restaurant - Brgy. Sirawan Toril Davao City



Living a years in Davao City, just recently I heard about Campo Agua Resort in Sirawan Toril Davao City. Campo Agua Resort is a nature type resort that is good for family bonding and team building activities.

Entrance fee is only Php 60.00 inclusive of cottage and swimming pool. Inside you can enjoy a cool nature look. They have swimming pool but only 3 feet. Only for kids. :) They have a lot of fish ponds too where you can do fishing - fishes variaties are Tilapia, Bangus and Hito. Captured Tilapia will only cost Php 70.00. Fishing rod rent is only Php 5.00 and bait cost Php 20.00



What I like most in Campo Agua Resort was the fishing activity. I can recommend this to all to have their family bonding here at Campo Agua Resort. The place is also clean, nice cottages and friendly service crews.

At the time we went there, fishes isn't that very good because they were still small. If you do have plan to go out fishing at Campo Agua Resort, you can call them first and inquire.



I love also their food - so delicious. We order deep fried Hito and it was so mouth watering. Can't wait to go back there and catch huge hito. :D

Campo Agua Resort is only 1 hour ride from town proper. It is located along Sirawan highway and it is so easy to locate. Get a chance to visit this place too this summer!
