Get Intimate with the Queen City Of the South

New Adventures


Last Sunday, I was finally able to leave the city and travel down south. The last time that I traveled was almost one year ago. So, why exactly did I travel down south? We drove all the way to Santander to break in my new motorcycle. Yes, I got a new motorcycle. I must admit one of the reasons why I stopped traveling temporarily was the failing ‘health’ of my old bike. It was almost eight years old and I felt that it would conk out all of a sudden if I drove it all the way to the southern tip. (Yes, it was as old as MyCebuPhotoBlog.) So, I made the difficult decision to sell it while it was still salable.

So, yeah. Here are some photos of my trip with Sven, my parents, and of course my new motorbike which shall be known beginning today as Dodong Gotham. Hehe.

Crystal Clear Linaw


So, this week, we traveled all the way to the southern town of Santander for my new bike’s very first long drive. As expected, even though the weather was a bit crazy, it was a pretty fun trip. On our way back, we stopped by the Linaw Pool in Argao. If I’m not mistaken, Linaw is a fresh-water spring. It is frequented by both locals and curious tourists. Whenever I pass by this spot in Argao, I always see to it that I slow down to get a good view of the pool. This was the first time that I actually stopped to take a couple of photos.

Cebu as of September 2014

The very dilapidated Gotiaoco Building is currently being fixed. Why? They’re turning it into a Chinese heritage musuem.

Payag Payag in the City


Earlier this week, my friends and I decided to check out the newest barbecue joint in Cebu. When we went there, the resto was still getting ready for its big opening (Friday, August 22nd.) But just the same, the staff entertained us when we asked for food. Cool points! Hehe. So, anyway, the restaurant is called Payag Payag which means ‘little huts.’ Or more literally, ‘hut hut.’ Check out the photos below to find out why you seriously need to give this place a visit!
