Tejero Highland Resort & Adventure Park

Sunday, November 12, 2017
 Tejero Highland Resort & Adventure Park in Valencia, Dumaguete City is the usual weekend destination of the locals to cool off. Families drive up Valencia hill in hoards, especially during summer days. I came to the resort with about 20 of my relatives so we were a party on our own. We came as walk-ins and good thing they found a long table for us between the rented room buildings and the sloping mountain. There were coconut trees around. A coconut actually fell, and fortunately didn't hit anyone.
 Front desk
 Entrance. They strictly check you tickets / stamps before you can enter.
 Rented accommodations
 Tables set up on one part of the garden.
 Pool fronting tables
 Pool with slides
 Comfort room
 Rentals
 Mist is spray all throughout the day to keep bugs off, or for cooling. No idea which.
 People like to walk barefoot. But do consider, the pavement and all cemented walkways are hot. Sometimes scorching.
 Table huts
 Shower area
Parallel parking outside the resort.

Remarks:
  • Pool was highly chlorinated, so best to not swallow a drop.
  • There are shallow and deep areas. If you're a swimmer, not an issue.
  • Slides are effective. Just line up and slither down the tube.
  • Bring your own food. Not sure if they sell beverages or snacks in the area.
  • There's a zip line which dips close to the pool lol. But no one can reach you, no worries.
  • After showering in the open (no other option), every female would proceed inside the bathroom stalls to change clothes, which had no hooks or shelves for your clothes. Expect wet floor at all times. And if you're actually falling in line to pee, then tough luck. Others use the pool (not recommended).
  • Vibe was lively, music was on at all times.
  • Before leaving, best to pick up all your trash and clean your spot.

Elegant Circle Inn

Friday, November 10, 2017
 Elegant Circle Inn in Cebu City is located at the Fuente Osmena Rotunda. We only stayed here for 1 night, and picked this hotel because we would require a cab around 5AM. The circle is lit during night time from the bevy of hotels around it, and taxis are always nearby. There are also 24-hour fast food chain next to the hotel. 
 Outside, the humble hotel offers a disabled ramp and stairs. 
 Lobby has couches, although a bit outdated on the decor. A simple change of lighting mood would do the trick, perhaps.
 Elegant Circle Inn Room Rates
 Checking-in was easy. Staff were nice and wide-awake, even at ungodly hours.
 A couple of massage chairs for rent is available at the lobby corner.
 Room corridor
 Corridor
 View from upper floors. The Fuente Park at the circle is littered with people from nearby hotels, houses, and establishments.
 Economy Twin Room: Php1086 (Agoda)

 Small table with cups, spoons, thermos, and complimentary water bottles.
Bathroom was roomy, toiletries include soaps, shampoos, and toothbrushes.

Temple of Leah

Wednesday, November 8, 2017
The Temple of Leah is being called Cebu's own Taj Mahal, mainly because of the concept of its construction. The temple was built for the love of a husband for his wife. It looked foreign, European, and of course, people came in swarms. The large statues, other-worldly fountains, and magnificent views as you look over the city from the top of a hill will remind you that nothing is impossible. Entry: Php50 / person
From JY Square Mall Lahug, we took a habal-habal ride of Php80 (one-way, 2-pax), same way to the Tops Lahug. You can haggle but if the drivers have agreed on a standard rate, they would enforce that to all passengers. Others paid Php100-120 per way for 2-pax.
 Motorcycle parking area as you enter the temple.
 Large road from the archway entrance.
 Lovely pillars
 Grand view from inside
 Leah Albino Adarna of the Temple of Leah
 Photo ops galore
I reckon it was still undergoing some construction during our visit.

Third Eye Wellness

Monday, November 6, 2017
I got my discount voucher for Transcend Spa & Nails at Third Eye Wellness from DealGrocer. Coming here, you can commute with FTI-BGC jeepney routes then walk a few meters from the corner. There would be tall buildings and windy open spaces, and direct sun if not night time. We took Grab to and from the place. Parking is possible inside the building, and also across the street, perhaps.
The building has a guard and you have to register in their log book. Just tell them you're going to the 6th floor to the spa. Once inside, the views are lovely and serene.
The cafe faces the view, with shelves stocked with their products for sale.
Behind the checkered wall is their Foot Station for reflex and spas.
Bright corridor leading to private rooms.
Nice, wide spaces, with zen undertones.
Private room for the Scrub + Massage package: Php468 (discounted from DealGrocer)
They provided basket for your things (under the bed), disposable underwear, shower cap, and body cloth wrap.
En-suite shower and bathroom, which seemed to be shared with another room. The other door was kept locked during my service.
After the scrub, you shower first before proceeding to your massage.
