Cebu. Im still amazed by you.
This a (very) late post of my wanderlust at the Queen City of the South. I just noticed I've forgotten to blog this wonderful escapade. I only have myself to blame. Shocks! So let me now start making this up to you my fellow readers.
It hasn't been a year yet when I've set my feet on the grounds of Cebu when another promo was launched and I hurriedly booked for a flight not to any other place but Cebu. Why Cebu? Because I have only visited much when I went there. Not really much. The usual landmarks like the Magellan's Cross, Taboan (for pasalubong) and Crown regency for it's famous SkyWalk. Most were spent in Bohol.
Together with my friend Chino, we went to tour not only the city of Cebu but also the southern part, particularly Moalboal. We didn't have any idea on what to expect, we just want to wander. I've searched all landmarks my feet has never set yet. I've read several blog posts on where to go and what to do. Looked for the cheaper place to stay and resto to eat. Luckily, all the efforts has paid off well. Because the trip went successful!
Let me start with Mactan Shrine. I've never thought that it's quite far from the city. One funny thing that happened was when I tried to hail a cab going to Mactan, no one can understand me. I did try to speak both in english and tagalog. I tried but I failed. The moral: learn some basic Visayan words..
The Shrine was simply a park, with Lapu-Lapu's monument as the highlight. There is a wide array of Bakawan or Mangrove trees at the south side. Some statues that resembles like totem poles on both east and west side. Souvenir stores lined up selling shirts, accessories and home decors.
