OPPO F1s: Summer Destination

The Philippines is one of the most traveled country during SUMMER because foreigners love the sun, sand and sea. We all have that in our beautiful country. Filipinos do not appreciate the beauty that is innate in our country that is why I always encourage my friends to visit different tourist places in the Philippines before travelling abroad. We have a lot to offer as a country, we have a great history, a beautiful culture, a virgin and not abused tourist spots, delicious food and it is very affordable to travel within our country.

My favorite Summer Destination is the Province of Bohol. My mother is Boholana and every year we visit Bohol during May, which is considered as a Fiesta Month.

I love the rich culture and old towns in Bohol. Even though some of the beautiful and old Churches were damaged and the people cannot restore it back, I am happy that I was able to visit some when I was younger. Last 2015, I went there with my family. My kids have learned a lot from our vacation because Bohol doesn’t only have natural resources and tourist spots but also man-made ones.

Let me share with you a photo of my son, posing with these bees at Bohol Bee Farm. At first, he was scared but eventually he conquered his fear and was able to hold it for a photo-op. It is easier to teach kids about insects when they are able to interact with it.

Here is a photo of the famous Chocolate Hills. When we were younger, we thought that Chocolate Hills is made of Chocolates and that we can eat it. My kids also think that they can bring it home and eat it. It is a beautiful creation that you can only see in Bohol.

We had lunch at the famous Loboc River Cruise, you only pay for the “Eat All You Can” Lunch and get to ride the boat for free. They will then have a stop over where you can listen to these kids who will sing and dance Boholano Songs for everybody to enjoy.

Of course, we went to the Man Made Forest and had our photos taken. The man made forest is located along the hi-way and most peopl have there photos taken at the center of the hi-way itself but I chose to have my daughter’s photo at the shoulder of the road to avoid mishaps. Though the street isn’t that busy compared to other cities and towns, we never know an accident will just happen anytime.

Then we visited the Shiphaus in Batuan. The Shiphaus was owned by a Ship Captain, it used to be their home but people from different places came to visit and had their photos taken. Eventually, it became a tourist spot and a hotel at the same time. They have rooms for rent, and they sell different tokens (pasalubong) for your family and friends.

Of course, it will not be a Summer Destination if we will not visit the BEACH! Life is a BEACH as we know and Summer will not be Summer without the SUN, the SAND and the SEA.  We just can’t get enough of BOHOL, can’t you see how beautiful it is? Don’t you want to visit it yourself?

I have visited Bohol a million times but I wasn’t able to visit all of its different tourist spots, old Churches, and all of its wonderful beaches. Yes, Bohol has beautiful virgin islands and pristine white beaches to offer, but we couldn’t visit it all at once so we kept on coming back.

As you can see, some of my photos aren’t that beautiful and we seldom have photos of us together. OPPO F1s should be part of my next summer adventure, it is not called the Selfie Expert for nothing, because I know it will surely take beautiful photos of me and my family together because of its 16MP Front Camera. Most phones don’t have a great Front Camera and only OPPO have given it importance.

Both kids and adults use sunglasses to protect their eyes from UV rays and increase their visibility while spending time outside.

Our SEDA HOTEL experience booked through Traveloka APP

I am a certified traveler and I know that as a traveler you need to have the best accommodation a place could offer. Some of the best hotels are quite expensive that is why I always check where I can save money and have the accommodation that fits my needs and wants.
I usually travel with my kids so the first thing that I check is that the hotel will have a big space for me and my family and a swimming pool. The best deals in hotel accommodation is so easy to check online, thanks to different travel apps that I could easily check out whenever I want and wherever I am. This is my first time to come across Traveloka.com and I am glad that I have found this app, which I used when I booked our Pre-Valentine’s Day staycation.
I was invited during Seda’s VIP Night last 2013 here in Cagayan de Oro and I wasn’t able to check-in for the last 3 years simply because Seda Centrio is one of the most expensive hotels in the city. But I decided to have our staycation at Seda Centrio with my family and I am glad that when I checked Traveloka App they have discounts that I can use right away, they have up to 25% off on hotel accommodation and that is BIG savings.
My kids enjoyed our staycation so much. I chose the CLUB room type with two beds on the 11th floor. As a CLUB and Premier Guest, Seda Centrio offers additional benefits such as: Complimentary pressing of one suit/dress upon arrival per guest per room, turndown service, complimentary use of DVD player (on request) and complimentary late check-out until 2:00 pm, subject to room availability.


We have a small fridge inside the cabinet, so the kids brought along their chocolates and drinks and kept it there. I love that they have a work area, which has a big table, desk lamp, with a comfortable swivel chair to match it with.

The kids enjoyed the big flat screen TV mounted at the wall, they watched Nick Jr as usual at least the TV is big enough for both of them. My daughter is a little princess that wants a clean and beautiful bathroom that fits a queen. She liked it so much that she immediately take a bath without me asking her to do it.


Seda Centrio has 2 swimming pools, 1 kiddie pool and 1 pool for the adults. I loved that they are not connected to each other like most hotels have which I really don’t like. Beside the swimming pool is the gym which can be used by hotel guests for free.


During our stay, we enjoyed the buffet breakfast (which is available 6:00 am to 10:00am at MISTO restaurant), afternoon tea (available from 2:00pm to 4:00pm) and evening cocktail (from 6:00pm to 8:00pm).
If you want to enjoy big discounts in hotel accommodations like me, you should download the Traveloka App in your phone, it is available in Apple users and Androids too.


It’s so easy to use, when you have the Traveloka App already, you can see 6 choices that you can tap: Flights, Hotels, Int’l Flights, Int’l Hotels, Price Alerts and Ongoing Promos.


Tap “Hotels” for bookings. In order to Search for the accommodation that you want, you must enter your Destination, Check-in Date, Duration, Total Guests and the number of Rooms that you need and you will see the available hotels in the area with prices. The prices are final and it includes tax already so you do not have to worry about additional charges when you arrive at your hotel.

Traveloka App will ask you for your contact details and special requests, if there is any, after you choose your hotel and room to stay for the preferred dates.
There are a lot of choices for payment and that is the best part, you don’t have to own a credit card to pay your hotel accommodation (which usually happens in a travel/hotel app). You can pay over the counter (7-11 or MLhuiller which has a lot of branches) or through banks (BPI, BDO, China bank, Landbank and Metrobank). Once done, Traveloka will give you a voucher for your booking, they will send you a copy through your email add and they will also text you in your cellphone number.



When you are about to check-in, the receptionist just needs your valid ID and voucher for your booking. It is so easy to book online and save a lot of money at the same time. Traveloka App is a must-have app in your smart phone. I saved around 23% from the usual room rates for Seda Centrio and that is a lot of money. You can save too, just by downloading the Traveloka App and book through them.
