Activities Around Cebu

I’ve lived in Cebu for almost a decade now, and I am still learning new things about this interesting city everyday. This part of the blog is my attempt to get to know more about Cebu: where to eat, dine, go out and party. To find Cebu’s hidden gems and obscure spots before they become lost forever. I need to be a comfortable fish in my chosen waters.
