Summer is definitely here! It’s been a few days, nay weeks, and months even when there seems to be no stopping the increasing humidity all over the Philippines. Umbrellas offer little help when you are walking outdoors, tree shades are no longer enough to hide from the sun; you can’t even run home to seek [...]
Kawasan Falls is among the popular summer destinations that Cebuano heads to when the heat becomes unbearable. This waterfalls system is blessed with numerous cascades and pools of chilly water and a dip in any of its falls is refreshing.

I have become familiar with both Carcar, Cebu and Liliw, Laguna’s footwear industry. And if I compare the produce of these two towns, when it comes to any abaca laced sandals or wedges, I have to give it to Liliw made. When it comes to espadrille I think they are at par with each other in design and quality wise. Liliw ladies espadrilles’ price range is from P230 to P300 comparable to that of Carcar made espadrilles.
Carcar famous espadrilles!
I am a proud Cebuana but I just have to lament the fact that Carcar produces so many cheap sandals that easily disintegrated, these are the ones you see all
At the constant prodding of my brother Nicko, we finally made the trip to Carcar, Cebu and the main reason is espadrille. Espadrille, that come back kid from the 80’s, has become so popular again! In fact I am noticing espadrilles everywhere in Cebu – in malls, in tiangges, in sidestreets – it feels like an espadrille invasion has overtaken the city! Despite its availability in all sort of places, we decided to head south, travel to where espadrilles are made, you know maybe we can get a good bargain from direct suppliers of espadrilles in Carcar, you can never know heheheh.
