Cebu: Food and Friends

Last weekend, +Jomar and I were back in Cebu for a Google Apps for Education training for one of the universities there.

We arrived in Cebu at around 10:30PM and met with +Jerome at The Ridges Commercial Center. We went to Starbucks in the IT Park to discuss the training the following day. I had hot chocolate and croissant. After less than an hour, we went straight to Center Suites to get some shut eye for the following day's training.

After having breakfast, we went to the university and train the student leaders of the campus. It was actually the first time I train students about Google Apps who already know the basic but was amaze on the other things I shared. It was so much fun!

After the training, we went back to the hotel to get some rest before heading for the most awesome Japanese dinner at Kamekichi Ramen Noodle House. I fell in love with their Gyoza and can't wait to try the Takoyaki in their other branch, next time.

After the dinner, we went to the CMYK Dessert House for dessert. I highly suggest the funnel cake and sizzling CMYK. Food is one of the reason why I love going to Cebu and Jerome is the best foodie Cebu guide ever!

By Sunday, Jomar and I went to the Sto. Nino for the 10:30AM Mass then went back to the hotel to check-out. We had lunch at Sunburst and desserts at Dessert Factory in the Ayala Center- Terraces.

Food coma is an understatement in Cebu! I can't wait for my next Cebu trip this coming May 2013.

February 2017: Food and Weather

I may have posted this line before, I have this love-hate relationship with my new home country. Though Canada still doesn't feel home, most of the time, I still feel like I am just on vacation and can't wait to go back home to the Philippines.

Anyway, I love Canada! This last winter season (December to February) is the worst snow British Columbia has seen in x number years, specifically in Metro Vancouver. Growing up in a tropical country, I would only dream of seeing snow gently falling from the sky like in the movies. But being able to see it with my own eyes and touch it while waiting for a bus is really a dream come true. I love the snow and how gently it would fall. The biggest reason of this love and amazement for snow is it's my first time to experience it. But the day or two after a snowfall, is just really annoying. Icy roads, icy sidewalk, icy everything and the fear of slipping is something difficult to live with.
