The Humble Silhig Lanot from Cebu Made it on TV – Make this your next pasalubong!

The Voice Kids Silhig Lanot from Cebu

It’s a common sight at the Cebu – Mactan airport to see passengers carrying boxes of Shamrock Otap, CNT, Ayer’s, Zubuchon Lechon, dried mangoes and danggit. And why not? These are the popular pasalubong from Cebu.  I do too, but aside from these usual items, I also bring with me silhig lanot.

I really do, as in haha.  Cebuanos we should make this our mission to make our silhig lanot famous! Unsa man, agree? Hehehe

The first time I brought this broom on my trip back to Manila last 2006, there were 3 big ones sticking out of my duffel bag. My mom and dad were amused, remarking that “tan-awon dyud ka sa mga tao

Short and Sweet Cebu Visit Plus Cebuano Favorite Eats

Cheap Seafood in Bantayan Island

Spending 12 days in Cebu may be a tad too long for regular tourists to this island province. But am not a tourist, am a Cebuana, and may I add a proud, beautiful one. Hahaha hirit pa dyud. =)

Sto Nino Novena picture

It is the Sinulog weekend in Cebu, the fiesta sa Balaan na Bata, the feast of the Holy Child. Some of you may associate Sinulog with just the Grand Parade, street dancing and pocket parties that sprung up in the city streets but to many Cebuanos and devotees of the Senyor Santo Nino, this feast is to thank the Sto Nino, to praise Him for all the blessings, to pray to Him.

The Basilica Minore del Sto Nino ~ Sinulog Novena Mass

The 9 days novena masses in the Basilica del Sto Nino is always jam-packed despite having masses scheduled every one and a half hour. Devotees from all over the country come in droves to join the Cebuanos in prayers, celebration and devotion.

First Time Visitors in Cebu: 2D/2N Astig Itinerary!

I Love Cebu Marker

Who says career women can’t travel and have fun? Definitely not these ladies from Calamba City!

Last month during a long weekend, friends from Laguna came here in Cebu to take that well deserved break from the office and home. It’s their special time to unwind and experience something new, but you won’t believe their 2D/2N itinerary ang bangis hahahha. Using only the commuting directions I’ve given them and the posts on this blog as reference, these adventure seekers and gutsy ladies travelled straight from the airport to Kawasan Falls!  That’s insane even I won’t do it!

Commute Aiport to Pier Uno

This is a direction tip and instructions on how to use public transportation to get from Mactan Cebu Airport all the way to Pier 1. Pier Uno is where you can find the Oceanjet ticketing office as well as port of its fast crafts. Buy your ticket early if you plan to have a Cebu to Bohol vacation.

This post is my response to the query of shynerb on my Mactan post. I’ve decided to create a new post since her question has been asked numerous times and it’s better to have a dedicated blog post for this so future readers will have an easy access to reference. It’s easier on my part too to just refer readers to this post.
