7 Reasons Why Fork In The Road Is Your 2016 Food Trip DST

This has probably been one of the busiest years of our lives, but we’re far from done just yet. With Christmas over and the New Year just ’round corner, The Outlets at Pueblo Verde is bringing a strong year-end finish with  Fork in the Road – an all-new wing that will host a range of enticing food offerings!


Fork in the Road restaurants are all Cebu homegrown restaurants that include the ff:

(1) Pigafetta feat. an Italian concept and named after one of the first European explorers who arrived in Cebu.



(2) Big Flat Bread famous for its 30-inch pizza.


(3) Zubuchon the widely hailed name in Cebu’s tastiest lechon.



(4) Manggahan Restobar A new Cebuano fave that specializes in grilled meat & seafood dishes.



(5) Choobi Choobi best known for its house specialty, Shrimp and Seafood in a Bag!



(6) Kogi-Q sought for its all-you-can-eat yakiniku.



And lastly, (7) Tea Kingdom A refreshing respite from the humidity of the islands where they serve organic milk tea drinks.

These fresh food options add to the current establishments at the complex: Bo’s Coffee, Calda Pizza, Black Pearl, Cherry’s Nutritional Value Juice and Smoothie Bar, Famous Belgian Waffle, and Baba’s.

With the launching of the new wing, additional outlet stores are also opening and these fave 8 are accounted for:

  1. Oakley Vault
  2. Onitsuka Tiger Outlet
  3. Asics Outlet
  4. Comfit
  5. Casio/G-Shock

The Outlets’ second year of Everything on Sale, 365 Days a year is even more grander when they made that split into a fork!

Cebu City Marriott Hotel Lights Up Their Christmas Tree!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… and  Cebu City Marriott Hotel certainly summoned the perfect look and feel of Christmas this year.

Last Nov 26, 2015, Cebu City Marriott Hotel welcomed the holiday season with their annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The day isn’t complete without the sparkling lights, the dreamy music, the wonderful carollers, and of course, the star of the show, their massive Christmas tree!


The massive and iconic Christmas tree currently towers over the hotel’s lobby area, greeting and casting holiday cheer to their guests that come and go. It is a beauty that shouldn’t be missed so I’d invite you to drop by their lobby if you’re in the area and witness the grandeur.


The lighting of the Christmas tree was led by Ms. Ingrid Santamaria, the award-winning classical pianist, together with the Cebu City Marriott Hotel heads. It was a performance that lulls you to thoughts of Christmas Eve, family, and gift-giving.

Also, the best of performer group in town — the Celestial Voices Chorale and Ballet Center of Cebu together with the nation’s celebrated concert pianist – Ingrid Santamaria, executed fantastic performances which made the night more relaxing and memorable.
