Foodpanda, my tummy would like to thank you!

I dread Sundays. Sundays feels like Mondays except that I don’t have to go to work and will starve to death if I don’t force myself to get out of bed and look for food.

I am renting a room and I don’t have a kitchen so cooking is not an option. We have a canteen but it is closed on Sundays, hence, the dread I feel. It has become a habit for me to order food online every Sunday because going out requires too much effort.

I usually order from fastfoods but today, I decided to try something new. I’ve seen ads for Foodpanda for over a year now whenever I search for available online deliveries within Cebu but never tempted to download the app. Until today. Boy, I am so happy I did.

Here’s why:

1. OPTIONS. So many options. They provide a list not only of the big fastfood chains but actual restaurants that delivers food. Now I don’t have to choose between KFC and Mcdo. I now have a full list of places I can order from. They even include my favorite restaurants in Cebu city.

2. Easy Access. Tap, tap, tap. Choose the restaurant, check the menu, tap what you want, add to cart, pay and viola! You’re done!

It is not perfect and there are parts of the app that can be improved but I’m sure they’ll get to it.

3. PAYMENT OPTIONS. My usual problem when dealing with online orders is that, I do not have a credit card and my debit card cannot be used online. I downloaded the app simply to check what it offers and was suprised to see C.O.D as payment option. So yeah, you can definitely use it even  without your own credit card.

4. Fast and Efficient. You get an acknowledgment that order is confirmed and process plus the estimated time. Same with others. Only this one lets you track your order. Also, they delievered without delay which sadly is not a common experience for most of my online orders.

And I love the fact that they have vouchers. I got 50% off from my order and boy, what a big thing 50% is.  So I got to eat my favorite food at a discounted price. Awesome!

At last, my sundays will no longer be filled with different variations of “do I really have to eat?”.

I love it. I really do.

MV Logos Hope

I’ve been looking forward to go onboard this vessel ever since it first came to the Philippines a few years ago. Back then, I was still working in another part of the country and could only see it in photos. This year, the MV Logos Hope is back in the country and is staying in Cebu’s Pier 1 (Behind Malacañan sa Sugbo) and I don’t have any plans of letting the opportunity pass.

So, despite my headache and though I am still feeling woozy, I went with some friends and visited the famous vessel.

Books are my weakness so even though I didn’t have any plans of buying anything I ended up buying three books. Whenever I go inside a bookstore I am always thankful that I do not have a credit carf because I don’t think I’ll be able to control myself.

Anyway, We spent a few hours walking about and checking out their books. I had to control myself the entire time and remmind myself that I still have to pay rent and phone bill so I don’t spend all my money there.

Well, here are some photos from today..

So many people inside!

For San Pedro. The vessel is docked a few meters from the fort and since it is easier for us to get a cab from Fort San Pedro, we walked the short distance and took some photos.

Now I’m back home with my headache and my books. Despite my exhaustion  I am still glad I went. The few hours there made me forget how sick I am. 🙂

If you’re in Cebu city and haven’t been onboard yet, don’t miss the opportunity. MV Logos will be here until May 29 and is open Tuesdays thru Sundays. Entrance fee is Php20.00 and the books are affordable.

The vessel is docked behind Malacañan de Cebu which is across Plaza Independencia. It’s walking distance to Fort San Pedro, Cebu city hall, Basilica de Sto. Niño and the Magellan’s cross. So why not include it in your itinerary?
