CEBU Day 1: Unplanned little tour around the city

If you're following me on instagram, you'll know that I recently went to Cebu (also known as the 6th best island in the world according to the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine, as seen on their website) with my college buddies. It was our first time going on a trip together that requires a plane ride. Hahaha. On our original booking, we were supposed to leave Manila on July 18, 7:00 pm but our flight got cancelled and we had no choice but to sleep on the airport! We rebooked our flight to 7:00 am the following day and again, it got delayed.... And finally, after waiting for almost 20 hours on the airport, we boarded and arrived in Cebu at 2:00 pm. 

Weeks before our trip, my friend Mina got us a 2-day tour package but because our schedule got mixed up, we got a free whole afternoon to explore the city! After we checked-in on our hotel, we hurriedly searched on how we can get to the iconic locations near our place.

001 @mariellegnzls photodump

I'm starting this instagram photodump thing-y partly because I haven't been anywhere lately so I really don't have anything to blog about (huhu) and also I just love instagram so much! Here are some photos and life updates from a couple of months ago.
3rd row: Baccalaureate Mass is one of UST's much-awaited events yearly and this 2016 was our turn to be the students celebrating it! There were fireworks, holy mass, lighting of candles, writing on uniforms and a lot more lasts moments. I shed a tear that night during the fireworks huhu it was so sad to leave the university that became my home for 8 years but it was also great that I was finally graduating. You can watch the 60-second video I made here. Watching it still gives me the feels.
