Where Do We Go From Here

Raft3r’s trip to Cebu was short but still memorable.

My hotel was walking distance to the mall. So boredom was out of the question.

Besides, work took much of my time and the little precious moments I had left were spent either sleeping or eating lechon.

Raft3r did make some pretty awesome purchases while in Cebu.

Chelsea Handler’s “My Horizontal Life” which is a rare find in Manila was being sold in Fully Booked Cebu for less than four hundred bucks.

House Series on DVD was on sale for P300 per season. I am not a fan of the show but with that price I could easily become one.

My ultimate purchase was a hundred dollar Oakley shades. It was such a steal that I almost kissed the Duty Free saleslady in delight.

The best thing about Cebu though is the strong sense of regionalism among its people. Now that is something folks from Manila seriously lack.
