Standing under the scorching hot sun for a good 5 minutes, wondering if the traffic light ever works.
Clearance of immigration was a breeze! I was the first in line can you believe it? :O
Sun sets as early as 5.30pm here and sun rises at around 5.30am. Once I woke up at 5.30am and honestly thought it was 8am.
Anyway I have been back in Singapore for a week now and I’m missing Cebu more than ever. I think hotel makes a major difference to your trip. Either it makes it or breaks it. The hotel in Boracay total ‘broke’ my trip, am still ranking it the ‘worst trip’ on my list.
But the food in Cebu is nothing fantastic, I thought the food in Boracay was better (way better).
Terminal fee at the airport (for departure) is a pain the ass – PHP 750 which is equivalent to SGD 20. Ouch.
Grab is now in Cebu. I swear taking Grab is safer and cheaper (half the price of taking a cab). Local SIM card can be purchased outside the airport hence you will be able to access to Grab after touching down.
One thing I found that can be annoying (sorry to those drivers who might be reading) – the drivers are super talkative. People are complaining about how talkative the taxi drivers are in Singapore but have you met Philippines’ drivers yet? They asked questions like:
“How many MRT lines do Singapore have?”
“What are the car brands which the Singapore drivers drive?”
“How big is Singapore compared to Cebu?”
“What is Singapore’s population?”
Yada yada yada…
HONESTLY. I WAS ON VACATION AND WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH SINGAPORE.
I missed Singapore, but can you not test me about Singapore? Once I literally counted the number of MRT lines we have and I felt so stupid.
Walking on the street alone can be a tad dangerous. Many times people actually catcalled, rolled down the window in their car and said some nasty stuffs. Oh well, that happened in Boracay as well.
Anyway I think Cebu would be my last overseas trip in 2017. This year has been awesome. Catch you guys soon. 🙂
