The A Girls and I took advantage of Cebu Pacific’s promo fares and booked in advance for a trip to the South last year. We chose to travel during this weekend of Feb. 27 to Mar 1. It was only for 2 and a half days but we were determined to make the most of it…

We excitedly left today for our 8 pm flight. Our main destination was CDO but had to make a stop-over in Cebu for a few hours.  Good thing we have friends here who arranged a ride that took us to some major tourist spots in the city – all within a span of a few hours….

Oh, how I missed Cebu! I lived (studied and worked) here for several years and so it is only fair to call Cebu my adoptive city – a  second home. As expected, many changes have happened to this beloved city – it takes a bit of getting used to…

All in a dizzying rush: In Fuente Osmena…Hurrying up to see the sights since we have to catch a plane back in Mactan Int’l Airport… (pic courtesy of JJai)

Oh, Larsian, how I missed you so! My favorite barkada hang-out has indeed changed. The eateries have been slightly moved to another place (but still near the original site) and housed under one roof.

Smoke gets in your eyes: Choose among the eateries and they’ll show you where to sit. You can also pick out your order and have them cooked while you wait…

Seeing Red: Dining at Larsian used to be alfresco.  But now it is all under one roof to shelter the customers from the rain and sun… but the problem was the smoke can be a bother for us, resulting to red irritated eyes; and the smell of charcoal smoke and grilled meat could seep into your hair and clothes…

Nice to see you again!: But they still serve the yummy pork barbeques (Php11) and puso which is sticky rice wrapped in palm fronds (Php 3 each)… *droolingbucketsrightnow*

You’re still the tops, Tops! The road to Tops (or Top) was steep (including the entrance fee: Php100) but the breezy and cool view of the city lights was relaxing indeed.

Just one more stop before going back to the airport: visiting Magellan’s Cross in downtown to say a prayer for a safe and smooth journey…

Goodbye, Cebu! I hope to be back again and stay longer (like a week!) to see more of my relatives and friends…

By the end of our little Cebu jaunt, we were all clamoring for coffee to help us stay awake since there were two more days to our Weekend Rush…
