A lot of things drive me nuts when I am back in Cebu. Like the long queues everywhere from bathroom to cashier. The heavy traffic and how I cannot do so much because of it. And do NOT let me start with the internet speed.
It is good that I am on holiday alone with my daughter. It does not feel like a holiday for me if I am in the middle between serious-overly-thinking German and God-will-take-care-of-everything Filipino parents
Some things that we did in Cebu that is worth mentioning were:
1. Seeing old colleagues.
2. Lechon, dried fish, sea foods, etc. I am so very happy to be able to taste them again especially halo-halo at Ice Castle in Ramos.
3. Videoke with my parents.
4. Malling. For a very small island, Cebu has more malls than in our small town here in Germany. No wonder a lot of people believe that they are “poor” considering the amount of salary they earn yet constantly bombarded with pretty things that are advertised as “must haves”.
5. Several staff of SM Seaside mall are Tagalog speaking. But I am a Cebuana in my own island and will only talk in Bisaya.
