The Island Born of Fire (Camiguin Island)


This place has been my home for 12 years. I grew up in this province, finished my primary and secondary education here. Whenever I have time and "money" of course, I go home just to relax and unwind. sosyal! haha! What I loved most in this place are the beaches, the one that you could never find in the city :D besides, my sanctuary is here. hehe ^_^
Last October (Lanzones Festival) I brought Janine with me for two days. We tour around by motorcycle and mind you! She's the type who does not appreciate beaches that much..she's more on malls and mountain views..maybe because, she's not a swimmer or whatever, but she really was amazed with the beauty of one the most visited places of the province.."The White Island" anyway..take a look ^_^

Queen City of the South (CEBU CITY)

-the gate away to a thousand journeys :)

I've been in Cebu City three times. The first two was a class tour :) We've been to different historical places, dine and stayed at fancy hotel-Marriott. 

Mactan Cebu, Taoist Temple and The Walk (IT Park) :D
Pics from our room, at Plantation Bay, best baby back ribs we ever tasted bought at Casa Verde restaurant, Ayala and not-to be tried again ever "Edge Coaster" at  Crown  Regency Hotel.
food trips around Cebu ^_^
Second visit was again a class tour but we just dropped by there from Bohol. Luckily, that was during Sinulog Festival and so we asked our Instructor if we could stay for the festival and we're so happy that he agreed and re-booked our ticket and unfortunately, no more tourist available and so we had no choice but to take the economy (side bed, whatever!) worst experienced ever. We had to deal with the non-air-conditioned accommodation plus not to mention the unwanted scent all over the place and the cries of the babies near by :( with so many noisy folks! disaster! anyways..
most tiring day ever!
During this day, all we wanted is to give up already. We walked around the city because almost all of the highways were blocked due to the parade..of course! haha! but you know, what's unbearable was the crowds. They're uncontrollable..I was even thinking, OMG! maybe it's my end now, lol-you know..stampede. haha! so stupid of me to even think about that aye?! But anyway..here's another one.
SM mall, Ayala Mall (outside, take after the fireworks display) and Cebu Street dancing..^_^
Leaving Cebu: see where we sleeping? haha! Note: never book on economy class :D in our case, we had no choice because we need to catch up with our classes so we took it. later did we realized it was a mistake. lol..or much better not to go home the day after Sinulog. It's too crowded :(

Anyway, the third time I went to Cebu was last April, from Manila..I stayed only overnight over at my friend's house. hehe..^_^ no photo :D
