I am a certified island girl and every one knows that.  I was born and raised by my parents in the Queen City of the south located in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines. I am talking about the gem of the Cebuanos, our beloved hometown CEBU! The great place where you can find great beaches, wonderful places to hang out, hospitable and helpful Cebuanos and where diversity is being celebrated all through out the region.  You will surely fall in love with our island.

Okay enough!!!!  That is too much for an introduction hahahha!  Oh well, I am just proud to say that I love my hometown and of course I miss the place so bad, that I really want to go home but I can’t.  There are so many great memories I have with Cebu, first love, first crush, first heartbreak and etc.

Cebu has always remained in my heart and because my roots will forever be instilled in me, no matter where I go, I will always be a true blood Cebuana. Cebu has become a little Thailand in my own perception, WHY?  because if you want to live in the city, you can actually get a condo in the metropolitan area where jeepneys and taxi drivers are driving like nuts but then again Cebu is like Bangkok minus the traffic though.  But if you love the beach, Mactan Island is the best place where you can find the great beaches and paradise.  There are also neighboring islands that are still located in the vicinity, cheaper, cleaner and preserved.  And then if you want to feel the cold weather and wants to hang out in the mountains, Balamban is the best place for you, we call it our little heaven.  So you see, you will find a little Bangkok, Phuket and Chang Mai in Cebu plus it is cheaper than any other places.  Who wouldn’t love that deal?

So if you are planning to visit the Philippines anytime soon, do not hesitate to choose Cebu as part of your itinerary and give me a message I might guide you through the great places here.

To celebrate the love and dedication I have for my beloved hometown, I got my newest I ♥ CEBU shirt.  I named it “MATI” the very odd nickname which my grandfather gave me when I was still a kid.    MATI is fresh in the eyes, unlike looking at my chocolated coated name SWEET, I preferred MATI for this shirt from Island Souvenir. The quality and price is worth it especially when you start wearing the ♥ shirt, you will feel the rolling of the drums and the people singing through the Sinulog beat.  It is like a magic spell that will bound you not to forget that special place.

And to make this post more special and fun, I would like to ask you to vote for my Favorite Blog Awardee: Kristine and her friends crazy photo in the We ♥ CEBU photo contest.  They submitted an awesome photo that describes how we live, love and havefun in CEBU!!!!
