DAY 1 - September 4, 2009
We reached Cebu City at around 5:00 PM, since we still don't have a place to stay, we decided to go to Ayala Center to have dinner and call on some Hotels/Inns that we have in mind. Luckily, we got one in downtown Cebu City which is very near Crown Regency Hotel.
We spent our first night by chillin' out at 22nd St. Comedy Bar located at Mango Square, just 5 minutes from the place we're staying. As requested by Mami Luz, I went up the stage and sang two songs.
DAY 2 - September 5, 2009
On our 2nd day, we went to the different tourist spots in Cebu. Our first stop is the Basilica del Sto. Niño. As a catholic, I've always wanted to visit this famous landmark in Cebu. I went inside and said a little prayer and then took some pictures. The church is so beautiful that I can't help myself but to stare at the ceiling. Outside the church I bought some candles, and the old woman who sold me the candles asked for my family name, then she danced while praying for my family.
Just a few steps from the church, we reached Magellan's Cross, a symbol of Roman Catholicism in the Philippines. It is said to have been planted by Magellan to signify one important event - the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith in the Islands.
Just a few minute walk from Magellan's Cross, is Fort San Pedro, Cebu's version of Intramuros and known as the the oldest and smallest fort in the country.
Next was Mactan Shrine, a site dedicated in honor of Lapu-Lapu, Ferdinand Magellan, and the Battle of Mactan. A life-sized statue of Lapu Lapu and a painting that depicts the war of Lapu-Lapu against Ferdinand Magellan can be seen here. A few souvenir shops can also be found where you can buy some cheap souvenirs. Kaya nga, dito na ako bumili ng shirts! hehehe!
The weather is not so good that afternoon, so we decided to go back to Cebu City. But before reaching our Hotel, we decided to go to Tabo-an Market near downtown Cebu. This is the haven for dried danggit, tuyo, squid, dilis, etc. and other Cebu's delicacies.
After all the shopping, we decided to walk along the streets of downtown Cebu City to reach our hotel. We have scheduled our final night in Cebu for a dinner buffet at SPARKS RESTOBAR and a thrilling experience of the SKYWALK EXTREME at Crown Regency Hotel and Towers. Just check out the separate album for the photos of our Sky Experience Adventure.
