The ambiance is so great. I never been to Boracay but it seems I already did because of its white sand. Great and cheap food. Will go here again on my next vacation

Magellan planted a cross to signify this important event about the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith in what is now Cebu, in central Philippines. The original cross is reputedly encased in another wooden cross for protection, as people started chipping it away in the belief that it had miraculous healing powers.
On my recent trip to the Philippines, I had read a bit online that there was a community of master guitar makers living on Mactan Island and that I could buy a completely hand-made guitar crafted of exotic woods for a fraction of the cost as in America or Europe. I was intrigued, so I did a bit more research. The history of why this little enclave of guitar makers exists traces back hundreds of years to when the first Spanish colonists landed on Cebu and Mactan island.

The “strict” ordinance of the government and the “working from home” trend of this new normal have been affecting my feelings which would sometimes lead to frustrations/minimal sign of depression. In instances wherein you’re alone, stranded in another city and being away from your siblings, the only person that you could lean on is YOURSELF. Therefore, never be discourage, stand up and pack your things with a complete armor or face mask and face shield then start your journey to mactan island wherein you can do beach resort hopping and visit their beautiful and elegant places wherein you can temporarily forget about negative thoughts and worries about what’s gonna happen or when can we go back to our normal lives? Bask yourself in the beautiful, fine and clean sand of Shangri-La, plantation bay and ibiza beach club and enjoy your life being alone and count all your blessings despite being stranded in another city. never lose hope and have faith that we’ll get through all these. It’s ok to enjoy and treat yourself to amazing places as long as you follow the health protocols and always have alcohol with you. God bless to all of us and let’s continue praying....
