Random Snap shots: Cebu

Visiting the Queen City of the south for the first time was fun. We stayed at Tuxedo Business Suites while some of our friends stayed at Golden Way Hotel because Tuxedo Hotel was fully booked. I had some snap shots here and there to document our Cebu escapade.

I was impressed with how Cebu has evolved to be a highly urbanized metropolitan from being a conservative city. You can still see the relics of their rich culture through their old structured buildings.

Good Morning Cebu!



Heritage Park

Kalayaan Monument would be Davao's equivalent to this structure. Although Heritage Monument is bigger compared to our own Kalayaan Monument.



Magellan's Cross

A trip to Cebu would never be complete without a photo opportunity at Magellan's Cross. This is part of Cebu's history and of the whole Philippines as well.

Magellan's Cross (April 21, 1521)


Sto. Niño Church

We attended the 5:30 PM Mass at Sto. Niño Basilica and was impressed with the crowd gathered together to hear the mass. Considering it was the 8th Mass that day,the crowd was still huge. I was wondering if they ever had a bomb threat there, way to risky scene for a bomb explosion. But God is good to all His devotees. God blankets his soldiers with safety and love.

old churches gives me a distinct feeling of serenity.





Fort San Pedro

We only stayed here for a while. It was burning hot with the sun glaring at us.



Lapu-lapu Shrine

There was nothing fancy about Lapu-lapu Shrine. The History was great but nothing much.

"ANG-ANG" somebody shouted behind us, then we laughed, a reminder that we are indeed strolling around Cebu.



We had to make a scene at Lapu-lapu Shrine, Here's our version of Lovers in Paris poster.

LOVERS IN CEBU



TABOAN Market

Stinky and fun market place for Cebu's popular Dangit and other forms of dried fish. Here you can find great pasalubong food ideas. Shopping time! Just make sure to bring an extra t-shirt along.

I got stinky, I got dirty but see I've learned!



CEBU TAOIST TEMPLE

A place of prayer and relaxation. One great get away from the fast faced city life of Cebu.
