Cebu City or Queen City of the South is known for its beautiful landscape, history and crispy lechon. 

Local favorites pancit Bam-i.

First night,  already enjoying the mouth-watering pancit called Bam-i. After that, walked around Fuente Circle and tried tea and dessert at a cafe.

Second Day:

New found friends in Cebu City at The Temple of Leah. (Middle) Rey Tumulak, (MR) Sunshine Kim, (Far Right) Kuya E, (Upper Middle) Rayna, (UR) Mandal.

Cebu is bustling and hustling city that has something unique to offer. I had the time of my life exploring the city and some friends showed me around town what to do in one day.  From driving around mouth Busay to enjoying the romantic feel at 10,000 roses.

Needed to unwind before going back to Manila. Vacation would not be complete without pampering myself at reflexology and spa. Feel rejuvenated after the massage.
