It's Sinulog 2011 Celebration in Cebu

It's always been said that here in Cebu, Christmas celebration is somewhat extended because of the Sinulog celebration. Well, I did notice that. Even tourists and visitors from other cities and countries flock to Cebu to be a part of this celebration.

Time was when I was one of those people crowding the Fuente Osmeña Circle. I've also watched the Sinulog Grand Mardi Gras live thrice within my single years. I didn't mind how much a ticket would cost me as long as I am seated properly and I can watch every Sinulog contingent/participant well. Then afterwards I would get to watch the impressive fireworks presentation for a few minutes. It was fun because I am part of a lively and happy crowd but when it's time to go home, it's a little disappointing and exasperating when you can't easily get a good ride back home.

Today, while everyone is busy visiting the Sto. Niño church and out in the Sinulog streets, we choose to stay where we are. We will be going to church today just within our municipality to attend the usual Sunday mass to thank the Lord for all the graces and blessings we have received. When we get home after church, we will just watch the live television coverage of the Sinulog 2011 Grand Mardi Gras because we don't think it would be a good idea to bring a less than two year old toddler out in a crowded place and just hope that it won't rain. Besides, we are also saving up for a rainy day! :-)

Happy Sinulog everyone!

do i have a future in writing travel blogs?

I'm not sure if I have a future in writing travel blogs. I think I'm not really good at it. But I'll try. I'll have to start by writing about any of our escapades or travels here in Cebu and hopefully in other parts of the country.

I'm naturally a homebody but I would definitely look forward to travel anywhere with my family, that's only if the budget would allow. So, who knows! My camera would be working perfectly by then. :-)

So, for now I will just leave you with pictures from one of our old travels taken last Easter of 2008 while Dipdip was still in the works. :-) This one was in Lingay Beach Resort and Restaurant situated in San Remigio, the northern part of Cebu. Actually I just realized they do have a website (a multiply account), so if you are planning to go there, it will be good to check out their site for inquiries, reservations and stuff. By the way, I am not paid to write about them but trust me, you are not going to pay dollars from this resort and it is definitely worth a visit.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
