Our Voyage Part 2 - CEBU :)



Cebu City is my hometown, it's where I was born too at lumipat kami noong 5 yrs old palang ako. After  a decade, bumalik kami doon with my ex boyfriend na  husband kuna ngaun, kasama din ang mga close friends namin sa church.

On April 2011, our church, the Grace Gospel Church of Christ, Things to Come Mission Philippines  celebrated its National Annual Workers Conference, at ang venue ay sa Cebu City. So were very excited to attend this big event because we will visit Cebu city together. Naghanap kami ng promo sa airlines kasi medyo marami kami na galing sa Luzon. And we were very happy kasi nakahanap kami ng murang ticket (nakalimutan kuna kung magkano yun hehe! Tagal na kasi). 7 kaming nakapunta sila po ay c Melody, Nilyn, Daniel, Grace, Jay at ang aking ex boyfriend na si Lemuel. hehe! Pero si Jay di namin sya kasama from manila kasi nauna na sya sa Cebu kasama ang mama at sister nya. So here we go, I would like to share with you our 2nd part of our adventure in Cebu!

Traveling with a companion is  wonderful kasi hindi boring, may kakwentohan kayo kaya na eenjoy nyo talaga ang pag travel nyo lalong-lalo na pag mga makukulit din ang mga kasama mo.  Katulad namin, hindi nahihiya at game na game sa lahat ng mga pupuntahan. In short walang kill joy sa amin :)

Its was hard for us to buy a ticket because some of us were either jobless or studying but thank God because He provides :). Kung may gusto maraming paraan, kung ayaw maraming dahilan! Agree?  
Yay! Welcome to Cebu City!!!

As far as I can remember, our budget was at 7k each. That amount went to the fare back and forth, (plane papunta, pero nagbarko na kami pag-uwi namin), Registration 1500, plus allowance. But because we were very thrifty, before we went there we were planning na wag nalang kami mag register at maghanap nalang kami ng church para matulugan namin doon. At mag-ambag ambag nalang kami for our food. We were able to save half of the registration fee! Naging 700 each lang ang ambagan namin for food for 3 days and 3 nights pero hindi naman kami nagluluto lagi kasi every morning lang kami nagluluto for our breakfast then lunch at dinner sa labas lang kami kumakain.

Our First Night & Dinner
When were arrived at Lapu-lapu City we're very hungry because it's already 6pm or 6:30pm, and you know na, pag sa byahe nakakagutom talaga lalo na pag malayo ang pinanggagalingan. And para kaming nakawala sa kabihasnan, hehe. that's why naghanap kaagad kami ng pwede naming makainan, we walked in the streets to find something to eat and amazingly we found a very good deal! The street lechon manok only 100 pesos, the "Puso" (a cooked rice covered by leaves of coconut) for only 3 pesos each, then the yummy barbecue! You won't believe it, at Php 50, busog na busog kana, at may sabaw pa!

After our dinner we still had time to visit the Lapu-lapu park. It's a beautiful park, there you will see the famous Lapu-Lapu monument and some history about that place. We have some fun at mga trip that na nakakaloka, hehe!

Lapu-Lapu Park Photos:
Hahaha! Sorry ganito lang talaga kami :P
My Love :)
Can't stop laughing kasi nanghila ng mga bata sa Park just to take a pause & have a picture with them lol!
Lapu-Lapu Museum
After our visit in Lapu-lapu Park, bumalik kami sa church para makapag set-up ng tent. All the girls slept on the tent while the boys were on the other side but without tent. Were so blessed because the host pastor of the church was very accommodating at welcome na welcome kami don at feel at home kami. Every morning we'd wake up early for our devotion, then prepare for our breakfast then we'd commute going to our conference venue, medyo malayo sa church naglalakad pa kami to highway then sakay ng tricycle. Every morning and evening lang kami umaatend ng worship services and lectures in the morning then afternoon gala kami anywhere na malapit lang sa venue namin.

This is the Church & were ready to go, our first day!
The Venue of our Workers Conference
Mang Inasal, SM Cebu, (Lunch time)
After the lectures and business meeting, we went to SM City Cebu for our lunch and we found out na napakamura lang ng Mang Inasal dun! It's only 79 pesos with unlimited rice. Gusto namin sa Mang Inasal kasi unlimitted rice sila, tapos masarap  kumain, at malulugi sila sa amin kasi ang lakas namin kumain ng rice, hahaha!!

After lunch pumunta na naman kami sa Mactan. Gusto namin puntahan ang Krus ni Magellan. For us to get there we needed to take a boat para  mas mabilis at masaya ang aming paglalakbay.
   
Pagdating namin akala namin malapit nalang yun pala sasakay pa kami ng jeep, at maglalakad pa ng malayo. Nakakapagod pero sulit, nakakatuwa kasi akala namin sa history lang namin makikita or sa TV ang the Magellan's shrine pero talagang na experience namin na makita ito sa personal.

From Lapu-lapu to Mactan
The Magellan shrine

The Magellan shrine is a large memorial tower erected in 1866 in honor of the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. The spot is believed to be the area where Magellan was killed in the Battle of Mactan on 1521, Philippines. The monument measures 30 metres high and it is located in the place of Punta Engaño, Mactan Island, Cebu. (Source: Wikipedia)

Magellan's Cross

After the Mactan, we bought some fruits and foods for our baon and nakadaan kami sa maliit na Park, tumambay muna kami at don kumain, nagbonding at nagpicture picture.

We all love fruits, so there...

Happy Couples :)

SM MALL & LAPU-LAPU MALL

Things that I love during this adventure:
 1. Time - Back then, we had all the time in the world! We can't bring the time from the past, it was a lot different back when we're single and now we have already a family and son.

2. Bonding- Bonding is anywhere, but to have a bonding like this is different it's very special for us. Because we able to met our old friends, old relatives from different place, and meeting new friends.

3. Lessons - We learned a lot of lesson there, specially the Word of God, the lectures, it also help us to strengthen our relationship with God.

4. Amusement - To be able to see and experience something new is the awesomest of all! (I'm saying awesomest because awesome isn't enough to describe it, lol!).

  8. This brings back so many fond memories! And I'm also reminded that my blog posts on our summer vacation there are still in draft. :P
    We took our kids there for some beach fun and a historical tour. Dami natutunan ng kids that they would not learn just by reading textbooks. Next destination namin is Northward naman - Ilocos and Baguio. The kids have never been there yet.
