So begins DAY 2!

November 16, 2012

We barely had time to sleep since we arrived almost midnight the night before. Thanks to our delayed flight. Hehe. Sleeping in Cebu for the first time was refreshing. We woke up about 6 AM the following day, watched a little TV from the cable-ready television in our room and took turns taking a bath. The amenities for the hotel was quite good. They even had a sort of laundry/kitchen area.

After preparing for our transfer to our event venue, we decided to eat at the restaurant located at the lobby of the hotel. The restaurant’s name is ZUBUCHON which offers the nation-wide famous Cebu Lechon.

The hotel is near a busy street, and unlike the night before, the street was filled with the colorful multi-cabs of the island. Zubuchon offers a variety of dishes which is a bit pricy for a frugal traveler. Their food ranges from 90-120 pesos per serving. This is a snap shot of their menu.

Dek and I ordered Zubuchon, while Rex ordered slow-cooked Adobo. All in all the food was yummy. 🙂 The staff of this branch was also very accommodating, warm and responded quickly to our request.

However, one thing to note is you have to wait for your food a bit. So, if you are in a hurry, this might not be the best option to have your meal. see the picture below? Yes, I was so hungry waiting for my food! haha.

UH-OH.. Besides the length of time, we also noticed an insect in one of the condiments in our table.

See that guy swimming in a sea of salt at the right side of the bottle?

But we didn’t mind. 😀

 

 

 

After these adventures as a group, we headed to our event – the 6th anniversary of the Jesus is Lord Church – Young Adult Ministry. I think I will be posting in another section activities pertaining to the event. 😀

 

 

 

 

TIP# 1: Try something new.

TIP #2: When we traveled from the hotel to our event destination… we realized that we should not act as if  we are new in the place (though we are), the taxi driver was not very helpful and friendly. 😦 If we acted as if we were naive, he would have taken an additional 100 bucks from us.
