Eskapo Dini sa Sugbu

I was back on my traveler's foot when a former badminton partner asked me to attend his wedding in Cebu. Since he was my all-time-3-year partner, I instantly said yes without even checking if I've got a budget. Anyways, he'ill be marrying my GF's working colleague, Lore.

Unfortunately, my GF was not 'formally' invited (as she said inspite of my pleasesssss). So I was left with the lonely me, my Nike sports bag and my cam to see what's there in this Sinulog town.

Actually, I've got an uncle in Carcar. The Gonzalodos are all living in Negros Occidental but Uncle Nelson preferred Cebu since his wife loves to live near the pristine beaches of this southern state. Well, I can't blame her. Just look at the sunset up there! It's intensely gorgeous!

The wedding was held at the Sacred Heart Church near Ayala Cebu. Afterwhich, we headed to the grandiose Waterfront Hotel, a mere 15-minute drive from the chapel. I was hoping the party would end early so I could catch an early glimpse of some of the beaches that my aunt infatuously longed for. So I asked my uncle to fetch me in my hotel and go straight to Carcar that evening.

Since it was really dark, Uncle Nelson decided we sleep over at my aunt's sis' house in Moalboal. I was frustrated at first for I was really eager to spend the night at the beach house in Carcar. Perhaps, exhaustion also struck me that I amicably went straight to the bedroom upstairs.

I got up at about 6 am and man, that is the best sunrise I have ever seen. I went down immediately, when I realized I was staying in a beach house??!!##....MAN o man!!!!!! It's almost paradise!!! Wait, is that a song? Ok let me change that...Man, this is paradise!!!!!!!!! I was literally alone at the white sand shore, finer than those of Racay (haven't been to Racay though hehe) and I was so astounded with the free panorama. It was still cold. The beach has just started to rev up its fiercenss with waves plummetting onto the shore.

Feeling DON!!!! Hehe
I kinda squat to hide my 6 pack abs...baka mainggit kau!

We travelled from island to island when I reached Carcar . Some of my relatives from Bacolod were even there to my surprise. At an instant, we had a mini-reunion. I can't remember how much chicharon I ate during the night.

Moonlight in Carcar - hanef.

I had to travel for about 2 hrs to get back to the Mactan International Airport. Around 10 pm, the PA announced that our flight will be dealyed. I thought, hey, I could still eat and buy some pasalubongs for my crazy bros, sis and LOLA. After 30-minutes another announcement....then another until the PA finally gave up. Our FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED!!!!! Harrrrrrrr!

I was in deep shit. I have to go to work the next day to finish my presentation to the contracts board. Man I'm screwed. Buti na lang CEBU Pacific shouldered the lodging and food expenses for the night. And buti na lang my boss was so understanding I could kiss him. Hehehe.
Coincidentally, on the same day, my relatives from Bacolod will be fying back home. So I went early to the airport the next day to meet with my cousins, titos and titas again. A cousin of mine will also fly back to Manila for his job so he transferred his schedule the same as mine. We even bumped with the newlyweds who happen to have the same flight as ours. SMALL WORLD!!!
I really had a blast in Cebu. I only hoped for a good time, HE gave me one of the greatests ever.
Next year, I'll be going to the Sinulog Festival and I'll make sure my flight will BE DELAYED! hahaha.
