Touring the Queen City of the South

Cebu is one of the iconic cities in the Philippines. A place full of history and festivities, Cebu is the oldest city in the country and is widely known as the “Queen City of the South”. I was fortunate enough to be one of the representatives of my school in the recently held International Eucharistic Congress (IEC), a gathering of many church leaders and chosen delegates around the world. The IEC usually occurs every 4 years, and this year, Cebu is the host of the event. With this said, I stayed at Cebu from January 27 to 31 for the Congress and as well as to explore the different attractions in the city.

North Bound: Day 1

It was my semestral break during the last week of October, and my family rarely goes out of town during this time because we usually have our vacations during summer. However, we wanted to change things a bit so we headed to Baguio, which is known as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” and as well as the “City of Pines”. We wanted to breathe in the fresh cold air and enjoy the northern part of the country so we decided to stay there for three days, from October 30 to November 1.

Dreamer

Frank Walker (left) and his younger self (right)
4/10 of my Disney Movie Challenge. Everything begins with a dream. A simple desire. A flicker of hope. A dream can start from anything, even from nothing. As long as you believe in it and work hard to achieve it, a dream can become a reality, no matter how impossible it seems to be. This is what the newly released film “Tomorrowland” has taught me. I watched the movie with my parents and cousins last weekend and although the story line was a bit confusing in my opinion and as well as having a slow pace in story telling, the film had its strong points which includes the simple but powerful message it wants to impart to its viewers.

Our last day in Singapore wasn’t that much because we had to leave for the airport at 11 am so we only had the morning left. We made the most of our time by enjoying our hotel pool. That’s it for my Singapore 2015 Diaries. I am looking forward to the day I can come back to this beautiful country.

Sentosa Sky Ride

Early morning of Day 7 my Dad and I tried the Sky Ride which was found at the Sentosa Sky Line Luge. The ride was basically like a cable car, well except for the fact that instead of a car it was an open bench. I know, scary right? The ride also lasted for 7 minutes. But since I’m writing this post in one piece, my Dad and I survived.
