Summer 2013: Cebu Trip

For the entire Holy Week, I went to Cebu with my boyfriend and his family for a 4 days vacation. We flew in Thursday morning and went back home on Sunday evening. We stayed at their relatives house on our first day then went on the the resort that we were booked at the following day and where we spent most of our vacation.

I don't have much pictures with me because most of the pictures where captured at Rain's phone and he has not uploaded it yet on his facebook so I can download them. However, below are just few of the pictures I have taken on my phone.

Day 1:  Sto. Nino Church and Magellan's Cross.

There was a station of the cross being explained through a mass. I can't really say much about this because I am a christian and we do have different opinion so....

At the back of the church is where Magellan's cross being stand. 

Did you know that it was not really the original cross that Magellan stabbed on the ground when they arrived here. According to the caption, the cross in Cebu was just the case where the original cross being housed on. All along I thought it was the original one lol! But oh well....

Day 2: Pado Beach Resort

This resort is like paradise!

It's a small resort in Lapu-Lapu City but the view is so amazing! The water is crystal clear. Their activities includes jetski, diving, island hopping, etc. etc. The staff are very friendly too. And the ambiance is very solemn and relaxing. The price is very affordable. I mean the cottage we stayed on have 2 bedrooms each with air condition system. There were 2 double size beds and 2 single ones. I mean 10 people can actually accommodate that cottage. And for a price of only 2,300 pesos!

The only thing is that, there is no shore in this resort. They built a stair going down on the shoreline but don't get too far or else you'll drown because the water on this area is very steep. But I find it unique though. My first time to experience a shore-less resort lol!
Day 3: Pado Beach Resort (still)

This is by far the best day in our trip. The highlight.....: DIVING!

Warning: Photo Bomb!

Honestly, I feel like a Power Ranger in this suit lol!

Jetskiing under water! oh yeah!
my favorite part. feeding all these fishes!

This was only a dream before. Since I don't know how to swim, I really don't like going to deep waters. But! since Rain is going, I decided to come along with him and make my dream come true! We both were really ecstatic! It was our first time to do diving and we had a blast!!!! We both want to do it again haha! It was really an amazing experience :D

Day 4: Last day- Ayala Center, Lapu-Lapu- Shrine

all 5 of us. 

Rain bought this bracelets. the black ones are his and the pink ones are mine :)
We had a short tour on our last day. We went to Ayala mall for buying of "pasalubong". And to buy the famous baby back ribs at Casa Verde. Then we had a snack at Ice Castle. Their Halo-Halo is so delish! Then we went straight at Lapu-Lapu Shrine.

I really enjoyed this trip. The adventures we had are just awesome! Though me and Rain had our moment (meaning argument!) but we resolved it after awhile and just laugh it all off. I can blab about everything but let the pictures do the talking anyway... whew! this post is quite long! I am really tired so good night everyone! :)
