Our Cebu Escapade:

Cebu City particularly in Daan Bantayan is my grandmother's hometown but they migrated in Davao City on the year 1950's. My mother was born and raised here in Davao but most of the time they come and visit their native land. When my grandfather died and my grandmother got sick and was paralyze. My parents got married and settled down here so we never had the chanced to come and visit the place. 

I checked the travel sched at Cebu Pacific Booking Site and availed the promo. I booked my flight along with my Hubby. I was so excited because at last I had the chance to fly in Cebu City and  my wish will soon come true. 

Last March 3 to 6, 2012, I take my flight Saturday at around 7 o'clock pm from F. Bangoy Airport, Davao City and arrived at the
 Mactan Airport, Cebu around 8 o'clock pm. 

We slept at YMCA Hotel for 3 nights and 4 days. Sunday: Our 2nd day: We had our free breakfast at our place and then we went to Ayala Center and had strolling. We also brought some stuff and foods for snacks suck as Peanut Kisses, Dried mangoes, Piyaya and Otap, which is Cebu's best delicacies.

We had our lunch at Chow king and then we went to Sto. Nino Cathedral, one of the tourist spot in Cebu. We attended the Holy Mass and then light candles. 

He also visited the Magellan's Cross and had pictorials. We also had offered a candles for Sinulog Festival and then went home after a long strolling days.
