Hungersss and we just decided to walk in a little restaurant at the roadside.

Food (from left): Something in between fried fish and salted fish. Some pork and veggie soup. Some mung bean stew. Stir fried bitter gourd.

I guess you can use the word “fresh from the sea” to describe the taste of everything. Not because they were such yummy seafood or whatever, but they tasted like sea water.

But apart from the salt overdose, the taste was really good! We both loved the bittergourd the most!

In the hotel cab. Hilton Cebu is so awesome they sent a car to pick us up!

Kids in the car next to us. Just took out our camera and they started posing! Damn cute!

After we checked in to Hilton, which is about 45 minutes (including traffic) away from the city and go all omfgexcited about it, we were stuck with nothing to do.

The weather was gloomy and we couldn’t go to the beach. So we were only left with one choice–go back to the city and do some sight seeing!

Cebu is the place for culture! All we cared about is a nice tan (Joyce) and gorgeous hotel (me)! What about monuments!! Churches!!

Exactly!

So we took a 45 minutes cab back to the city -_-. And the cabbie was really mean. He insisted 600 peso for 3 destinations. And we discovered two of the destinations are just next to each other. Bloody hiao. Cheat One™.

So if you go the Cebu, make sure you only go for the metered ones.

We couldn’t stay long because the cabbie said if we take more than 15 minutes there will be an additional charge what turf.

Second stop, which is also the last stop (really sly lo the cabbie!) was Magellan’s Cross.
