Can't wait to get back

You two have fun! star_smile.gif

There's a new lodging establishment across Ayala Center Cebu called Quest Hotel in case you're looking for one. I like their free breakfast buffet. It's better than what's being offered in hotel chains in the US and unlike most places in the Philippines that only have sachets of instant coffee, Quest Hotel serves freshly brewed coffee. Really good!

I grew up in Downtown Cebu. After 2.5 years of living in LA, my husband and I went back for a visit in May this year. He still dislikes Cebu. I also thought I could handle things the way I did before but they're different now - the traffic congestion, noise, abandoned construction sites, the food, the heat and humidity. It was too much. I started asking myself how I lived all those years. It seems that there are only two rules of traffic in metropolitan areas like Manila and Cebu: don't kill and don't get killed.

Luckily Bohol is close by, my favorite island. I brought my husband there and he has been enthralled by the dive sites in Balicasag and Cabilao. We intend to join a liveaboard for diving in the Tubbataha Reef near Palawan next time we visit the PH.

I will check it out. Not sure she has our accommodations lined up yet. I think she is trying to rent a house in Talisay. I told her, no hot water is fine, but I got to have the Air con :)
