Bisan Unsang Orasa, Cebu
I told myself that when an opportunity comes to visit Cebu again, i would definitely go because the people are so warm and friendly, and the places are peaceful and pretty. I went there for the first time around 7 years ago with my cousins and friends who toured us to the top destinations in the city and until now, I couldn’t forget the moments. Below are photo diaries of my 2 trips to Cebu: one in 2009, while the other which is just a 5 months ago!
My first visit in Cebu was memorable because our family friend toured us to these destinations that are famous in the city. They also accommodated us in their house and met a few more friends and batchmates that we have bonded with in resorts, clubs (I like the night life there!), and beaches. I love Cebuanos’ hospitality. Sometimes people would just greet me “hi” and it’s so nice to hear that coming from a city where everyone is just busy haha
So when high school friends invited me for a short trip in Cebu City and nearby island, I immediately said Yes even if I have a booked event on the 3rd day. We arrived at Cebu City in the afternoon and we visited the clean and green Ayala Mall which I first saw 7 years ago.
We then went to eat at this famous locally grown restaurant and I just can’t help to Instagram and devour these!
I didn’t have the chance to visit some cultural places back then so we were on tourist mode for a couple hours and it’s nice to be refreshed with some history lessons!
We ended the short day at Tops which had become really developed after a few years with more restaurants and food offerings. Our good friend Jed and Maricris brought us here and it was such romantic place!
Thanks to friends for making this trip possible! We tried going to a bar after but we realized that it was a Thursday haha. Will definitely be back and hoping I can experience Sinulog too!
