... do. All around us was boy racers who was blasting the tunes out in the petrol station. Everyone was just having a good time. 7eleven was the place to be. After a few cheeky beers we headed for the clubs.
There were a lot of clubs to choose from so we didn't know which one was the best. Kelly ended asking some security officers which ones they liked. We ended up deciding on one and agreed we would go to a couple whilst we are here. The boys had to pay double the ...
... to put up with the constant harassment of sales people here that exists in many of the other Asian tourist spots. And, of importance for retired souls like Monica and I, the Philippines are very cheap even when compared to other Asian hot spots like Thailand and Malaysia. A good hotel room can be had for no more than $20. A beer runs for something between a dollar and a dollar and a half depending on the quality of the establishment. And Red Horse beer is ...
... had on him. After another 15 minutes we were once again off! As I was sitting there on the back of the cycle, I prayed that we would finally be blessed without interruption. Also it was getting on a bit and I was slightly concerned about time. We eventually got there, said our goodbyes as I'm sure the tire fiasco probably bonded us in some shape or form and then it was to the ferry. The ferry ran smooth and ...
... lane. Thankfully we handed the key to his wife, retrieved Larissa's ID and wondered off at speed.
We arrived at the port an hour early. There were some food stalls at the far end and we wondered over to sit by the waterside onto of a sloped concrete platform. I bought a Puso, which is a coconut leaf wrapped into a triangular basket with white rice inside. I ate my plain rice watching the tropical fish swim around the boats. It was a beautiful scene and one which truly ...
Last week, Beth and I were in Bohol - which we loved! We got to hold a tarsier, see the chocolate hills (which are hard to believe are actually real), snorkeled and saw tons of coral and fish, and went dolphin and whale watching (we saw a whale shark!).

I booked this place online before arriving in Cebu, sight unseen. Very friendly. I got in at Oh Dark Hundred, leaving Hong Kong on a flight to Cebu overnight.
Even through Checking wasn't until 2pm, Checkout for the rooms being 12 noon and my room for the night being still occupied when I rolled up at 7am, I was able to check my suitcase into their secure storeroom and go out on the streets and hoof it around until noon and then check in early.
During my stay I found the staff friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the air conditioning was a godsend.
I would happily reccommend this to any other travellers to Ceby City.
