First Activity we chose that the resort offered is the Island Hopping. I am not sure how much my aunt paid per head but as far as I remember it was more or less 1,500php with refreshments included. A little pricey but that’s what you get if you are staying in expensive resort.

I am not really confident with my swimming abilities. I need to feel the floor tiles of the pool before I swim. In short, being in a bottom of the sea is not really my cup of tea. I always tell my friends when I do head stand or handstand in yoga that I have trust issues so I need to do it near a wall. I never outgrew this fear.

My aunt pushed me to try going in the sea since it was expensive and second, we have life vest. Though she herself wouldn’t do it coz she’s scared as f*ck. Well, I tried it. My life guard said he will not let go of my hand. I don’t know how to use the snorkels so I kept on drinking salty water. He said I can remove it, so I did. It was better. But I cannot balance plus the waves are getting bigger. I thought for a moment that I will die because the “life guard” was so busy swimming and snorkeling.

I think he felt my little struggle there so he let me up. Good decision. I am very much okay staying in the pool than being in the middle of the sea. Though it did not end up really nice, I gave myself a pat in the back for being so tough there. I will practice using the vest next time so I know how to move with it. I think that’s the key on manoeuvring in the middle of the sea. Wish me luck in my next floating experience.

Back in Cebu, 2018

For Japan’s Golden Week holiday, we decided to go back to Cebu and this time with my uncle.

We decided to stay again in Crimson Hotel and Spa resort because it is the most accessible resort near the airport. Next to Manila, Cebu’s traffic is the worst. I swear we were supposed to have dinner in SM Cebu Seaside, but the heavy traffic made us decide to return. That’s how bad it is.

Golden Week was a chance for most Japanese to go on travel and have a vacation. Guest what? The resort feels like we were just in Japan. I can hear everyone speaking Japanese. Having a direct flight from Tokyo to Cebu is one of the reason why this place is popular tourist destination for Japanese. Cheaper option too. Although the resort is not really cheap, the service they provide is awesome. Always over the top that’s why we fell in love with Crimson Resort. And with the terrible traffic, staying in Crimson Resort is a relief since it’s just 30 minutes away from the airport. You can just book a grab anytime.

I have a feeling that this will not be my last visit in Cebu because technically, I was not able to explore the place except the nearby areas coz I need to take care of the Cebu first timers.

I will be posting our 5 days 4 night adventure so please stay tuned.
