Trip to Cebu

Pacific Pensionne ~The real hotel review


Well it sucks! Sorry to be rude but this hotel accommodation almost ruin our vacation. Maybe you wanna say that you get what you pay for but here? No you don’t get what pay for, you get less than what you pay for. Firstly, it ain’t clean. They won’t clean your rooms unless you say so. Second, The shower knob is broken, you can’t shower properly with a broken shower knob. Thirdly, there are plenty of ants in the room. Fourthly, Don’t expect that you will be served like a guest. Fifth we asked for water, it seems like they don’t wanna give us some water. If it’s for sale then say it, don’t give us some warm water and expect that we’re going to drink it. Sixth, we asked for extra pillows and sheets and it took them forever to give it. As if we’re not going to pay. After staying there for a night we decided to just move to another hotel in Tagbilaran which is Bohol Tropics. Yes it’s cheap but if you don’t want a hassle free vacation do not stay here. The staff are not even hospitable. Here’s one thing I learned during this trip: Do not settle for less. You’re on a vacation, get something that you deserve. You’re suppose to have fun. Spend your money wisely.

Note: I made an online booking and paid in advanced but when I got there, they didn’t even bother to check if I really made a deposit nor ask for identification if I’m really their guest. They just know that someone did, but they’re not sure which guest made it. I think they’re online booking is fake. I was there in a holy week, what if they ran out of rooms? Then maybe we’ll end up looking for a hotel in the middle of the night.

Butterfly meets the Queen

CEBU CITY—- the crowned Queen city of the south. We went here for a 3n/3d tour (Dapat talaga 4d/3n to). I’m not an expert in online booking sa katangahan ko I failed to look at the flight schedule. We are flying from Clark kaya limited ang choices sa flight schedule.

Shall we proceed with the tour? Thanks! 🙂 Last April 22-25 some of my friends and I went to Cebu and Bohol.  We waited for four months before this trip because we availed of the early bird promo. Our fare tickets costs only P2000 (700 bas fare) each.

I was so excited for this trip. I can’t even sleep few nights before this trip because I was trying to plan a D-I-Y tour. I was excited because I will be with another 2 pair of crazy couples. Plus we have no parents to look after us it is the first time I was allowed to travel without my mom or dad!

But my parents were compelled to let me go because I used my mom’s credit card and there will be no refund. HOWEVER my 100% annoying and smelly brother accompanied me with this trip.

Patentado mag aaway kami nito

we arrived at night in Cebu. There was nothing much to do so we just decided to have our dinner at McDo and have a good night sleep because we will hit the streets at 7:00 am the following day.

City Tour

Paula, me, Mac, Tohc and Pat

We took the jeepney to our first stop which is Magellan’s Cross and the Bassilica del Sto. nino. (Ang inet grabeehhh)

Image

Seeing this makes me remember my favorite subject in my first year in High School. History 🙂

Image

One of the oldest Church in the Philippines. I like anything ancient. they make me feel I’ve seen them or experienced them in the past 🙂

Image

On our next stop we decided to go to Fort Santiago. Unfortunately it was closed since its Holy Week. But we saw something more interesting than that lurking around  fort Santiago.

Tyra: Marga are you ready to see your best shot?
Marga: Love to.. 🙂

Tyra: You don’t know how to smize. When you smize you don’t do the lips. This one looks like a smirk to me
Nigel: I don’t totally love it. I like the way you held the snake fearlessly
Andre: Are you looking at the snake or at the camera? (peace Mac! haha)
Sa tingin ko dito natuto si Mac humawak si Mac ng snake noh Tohc 🙂 hehe
Tyra: Paula, I heard you had a problem with your photo shoot. Let’s see your best shot

Ok enough with the man-eating snake!
Our next stop was at Cebu Taoist Temple:
Image
Image
It’s kinda tiring to wander in this Temple. It’s really high. But I think it’s cool. Coz it looks like those we see in Chinese Movies or cartoons like Dragon Ball Z

–End of Cebu City Day Tour
Next Activity: NIGHT LIFE
Image
One thing I noticed about the food in Cebu is that you’ll see barbecues everywhere.
Image
Here you can use your hands for eating. you can use the plastic which I do not recommend because you’re not gonna enjoy the food unlike pag nag kamay.

Sabi ni kuya picturan namin sya
Image
We went to Crown Regency to experience Skywalk! I’m so excited! Until we saw the super long cue. :c We waited for about an hour, Until The boys’ balls vanished! They wre too scared and they wanted to leave us girls and get the party started.
