Guide to Cebu – Parkmall Edition
The City of Mandaue is one of three highly urbanized cities on the island of Cebu. Here you will find the first truly pet-friendly mall in Cebu, Parkmall. Because of the malls accessibility and fun-filled activities, it has become the favorite destination for pets and their loving owners.
I would say that Parkmall is definitely more than just a place for shopping. They have a boxing gym, an extreme aero park, a grocery store and a wide variety of restaurants to choose from. If you’re looking for something better to do this weekend, try a walk at Parkmall.

Go Boxing at Ala Gym
Boxing is a great sport to get involved in to keep fit and stay in shape no matter what age or level of fitness. What I love about Ala Gym is their unique training programs, complete boxing equipment, separate showers and toilets, hands-on management, quality of service, fully air-conditioned workout area and availability of trainers at any time of day with no appointment required and no membership fee. So get your gloves in the ring and burn about 727 calories in an hour!
Have a Mongolian Bowl at Kublai Khan
After a 2 hour high intensity workout, it’s time to reward myself and build my own stir-fry bowl at Kublai Khan. They also have a brown rice option which is a better choice and a healthier alternative to white rice.
Tip: In going for this Mongolian eat-all-you-can adventure, indulge on meat and vegetables for recovery. A good rule of thumb for protein requirements: consume 1 gram of protein per pound of lean body mass. In addition, experts recommend 15 to 25 grams of high-quality protein within the first few hours after working out.

Relax and have a cup of coffee at Bo’s
Everyone loves to people-watch and drink whether they will admit it or not. Personally, I get a kick out of it. A cup of hot mocha while taking a break or on a diversion has a relaxing effect for me. Coffee contains a range of antioxidants and plant chemicals that give the drink its characteristic smoky bitterness and smell, as well as healthy properties.

Check out Extreme AeroPark with friends
Located at the 2nd floor of Parkmall, Extreme AeroPark is the first indoor trampoline park in Cebu. I think this place is perfect for birthday parties, family night, team building or just for fun! For only PHP450 during weekends, I enjoyed an unlimited pass of wall climbing, laser tag, foam pit, dodge ball, Parkour wall and so much more exciting activities!

Try a Levantine Arab Shawarma
I gave my tummy a day off and went for a light and satisfying supper. Shawarma Gourmet serves authentic Middle Eastern food. With chefs from Lebanon who use 26 spices to flavor the meat of your choice, (either beef or chicken) this will surely became a constant craving. The freshly made wrap with warm meat oozing with garlicky sauce is so comforting after a long day filled with activities!
