Sofie Sunday ~ It’s Travel Time – Cebu City, a Cool Place! (Part 2)


Note: Here is the link for the first part of this post.



The plane ride didn’t take too long. We got off the plane safely. We rode a van and started to drive around Cebu City! We checked in to a hotel, and then started sightseeing. Yay! First stop, Magellan’s Cross…

A cross with an interesting origin…




After we saw the Magellan’s Cross, we started to get hungry. It was time for lunch! We ate at Salo Salo Sutukil restaurant.

I really liked the eatery’s choice décor, it was very ‘Pinoy’. The food was really yummy. A man played some music with a harp, he was pretty good! The view of the long river outside completed the scene.


After the meal, we went to an amazing park called, The Mactan Shrine. At this beautiful landmark, you can take pictures with the statues of Magellan and Lapu Lapu. Pretty flowers are everywhere to look at. There is also a tall Philippines flag standing nice and high, in the middle of the park. Take a look at our pictures:










Next stop: Sirao Garden! (To be Continued!)

Sofie Sunday ~ It’s Travel Time – Cebu City, a Cool Place!

Hi, everyone! If you have read my post last Sunday, then you will know why we have not updated for two weeks. If you have not, then read it now so you can catch up! (CLICK HERE!)

Okay, have you read it now? Good. Let’s start our journey to Cebu!

Day 1 had a very early start. Mom, Shawn, and I (along with our relatives) had to stand in line so we could check in our luggage.


After we finally checked in our bags, we ate some breakfast. After a good meal, we then started waiting for our plane. Oh, the excitement! I think we waited for 30 minutes to 1 hour. While we waited, I saw other airplanes taking off outside. People were scattered here and there inside the airport.


Soon, we could board the plane! YESSSSSSSS!!!

We stepped onto the plane and found our seats. When I looked out of the window, I could see one of the airplane’s big, shiny wings, lots of clouds, and men driving forklifts. I immediately started taking pictures.



Shawn’s First Morning on a Plane (and his first time flying on one!)


I could see the land outside the window getting smaller and smaller as we lifted. The sky was a pretty shade of light blue, and the fluffy white clouds were near! Shawn said the land below us looked like doll houses. Don’t you agree, too?


After a bit, the stewardesses served everybody some food. We got some juice and Japanese mayo sandwiches. Yummmm…very tasty!

Sofie Sunday ~ We’re Back!!!

Hi, everyone!

We have not blogged for a while, so you readers must be wondering why.

So, why?

We went on a vacation!!!

The reason why we have not updated is because we were out for a 2-week long vacation. We went to lots of places with our relatives!

We went to tourist attractions in Visayas region, like in Bohol, Cebu, Capiz and Iloilo. We saw the very small Tarsiers, and ate the sweet mangoes of Guimaras (the mangoes were seriously good!)!

So next Sunday, I’m going to post all about our trip, along with lots and lots of pictures.  You will get to see the amazing view of Chocolate Hills, and Shawn’s first time on an airplane, and a boat! I think I will need to do a part 2 for that post, I took so many pictures  since we went to lots of places.

So, watch out next Sunday for my It’s Travel Time ~ Cebu City, a Cool Place. You will read about the first week of our awesome trip.  I need to write my draft and edit photos.

Share this post to spread the news. Have a happy Sunday, everyone!
