Cebu, day 2

August 27, 2008

Just before the end of the first day of the convention, co-security agency owner Sheryl and long time friend in the industry together with her husband Lew, we decided to make use of the rest of the late afternoon to tour the suburbs of Cebu. I called up my brother Mer to rent for us a cab and pick us up at the Cebu International Convention Center. In our convention get up and with high heels (ouch!) we went on with the tour.

First stop was the historical Mactan Shrine where Lapu Lapu and his men repulsed the Spanish invaders and killing their head Ferdinand Magellan thus making Lapu Lapu the first Filipino to have repelled European Aggression. Next spot was the Magellan’s Cross Shrine, Basilica de Santo Nino, Taboan Market where we bought Cebu delicacies. The last stop was at the peak wherein you can view the whole of Cebu called - The Top at Busay, Cebu where we had dinner before we finally stopped by the Waterfront Hotel where Sheryl and Lew were billeted. The 1,200 pesos taxi rate was worth it.
