Vlogging For The First Time : 10 Things I learned So Far


Is blogging a dying industry? I hope not. It is now the era of vlogging and video marketing, and so I am joining the bandwagon.
My very first time Vlogging using this phone camera set-up. Also, my first time to use Filmora as editing apps.
What have I learned so far?

1. Use a custom intro
2. Use lower thirds
3. Use full screen graphics
4. Use transition
5. End with screen background
6. Use storyboard
7. Practice to achieve that confidence in front of the camera
8. Prepare your script
9. For video branding and marketing, use logo and repeat
10. Call to Action

I will try my best to do better next time. Does it mean more travel vlogs? I hope so.

Thank you Youtube University! I have learned a lot in just 2 hours. 

Things You Need To Know About 10,000 Roses Cafe in Cebu



Taking selfies at 10,000 roses located in Cordova, Cebu is indeed a challenge at night.  I guess the best time to visit is at  6pm, kung saan nag aagaw ang liwanag at dilim.

Although the place is really romantic, do not expect much. I am expecting a huge field of led roses, but it is not as I was expecting.

The 10,000 roses cafe is actually a coffee shop, but you are not required to buy from the cafe. All you have to do is pay for the 20 pesos entrance fee for the access in their 10,000 roses field.

I suggest spend 30 minutes to get that selfie that you wanted and head over to Lantaw Seafood restaurant just beside it for a sumptuous dinner.

I will be sharing with you this video and see for yourself the challenges we've been through. 






Address : Day-as Barangay Road, beside Lantaw Floating Restaurant, Cordova, Cebu
Schedule : 10:30 am to 11:00 pm
Entrance fee : 20 pesos


Temple of Leah : Cebu's very own Taj Mahal

Let us talk about love this time.

20 to 30 minutes from Sirao Garden, you can visit Temple of Leah before catching that flight back to Manila. 


The temple was constructed in 2012 as a symbol of undying love and devotion of Teodorico Soriano Adarna to his wife, Leah Villa Albino-Adarna.  Dubbed as the Taj Mahal of Cebu, the owner adopted an architectural and structural design that can withstand time and still be appreciated for a millennium where future generations of the Adarna clan can trace their roots and heritage.

If the surname sounds familiar, it is because Leah is the grandmother of actress, Ellen Adarna.  Leah's lifetime collections are showcased in the 24 chambers of this Temple principally for the members of her family who will cherish her memory.



The chandelier had been hung in pride since July 2018 in the grandi
ose hallway. This sparkling jewel complements the massive pillars and the high vaulted ceiling.  




You can also find bronze statues everywhere that accentuate the patteron the floors and walls.







This line of enormous pillars is a great background for that mala-goddess photo you have been wanting.  Aminin! 



I have been wanting to visit Europe, but reality bites,  I am not really ready for it. This is the closest I can get to have this kind of shots na mala Europe feels. Pwede na!




Entrance fee 
Php 75

Sirao Flower Garden : A Pictorial Garden with Amsterdam-ish Feel

Google “ New Attractions in Cebu City” and you will be blown away by the long list of tourist spots in Cebu.

If you have six hours to spare before heading back to  Manila, you may opt to visit Sirao Flower Garden and Temple of Leah to get your next  IG photo or most probably your next FB profile photo or cover photo.

Visiting Sirao Farm and Temple of Leah also proves to me once again the influence of social media in our society.  I’ve seen a lot of great photos taken in these places and I was really amazed and told myself I should have one too.

Sirao Flower Garden

A lush garden on top of the hill? How can I resist that view? 

Dubbed as the Little Amsterdam of Cebu City, Sirao Garden is located in Brgy. Sirao in the upland Busay area is showcasing the abundance of their red and yellow "burlas" flowers.  There is also this windmill for that "Amsterdam-ish" feel.



Be prepared with the right OOTD. I recommend for a flowy dress or a maxi dress for that mala-dyosa or mala-diwata feel in the garden.

Check out my IG worthy photos below :

"Dyosa"
Takot sila, but not me :-)


"Sari-manok"


"Ang itlog, bow!"

"Diwata"


"Mga lakwatserang frogs!" peace!


How to get there?  

It is suggested to take a private vehicle to avoid the hassle of transferring from one vehicle to another. 

By private car : use waze and search for "Sirao Flower Garden, Little Amsterdam"

By MotorBike : Take habal habal from JY Square Mall to take you directly to Sirao
By Van : Take a V-Hire going to Sirao either from SM Cebu or Ayala Cebu PUV Terminal, whichever is nearer to your hotel

Entrance fee : P60 pesos

Operating Hours : 6am to 630 pm for all visitors / 630pm to 630am for campers
