i love my haircut :D

I arrived in Cebu City after a couple of hours. Making my way out of the busy wharf, I was greeted by another unwelcome sight - that of taxi drivers trying to vie for my business, a.k.a. rip me off with astronomical taxi fare. Wow, feels like home already! Of course, I easily warded them off with my best weapon - my middle finger. Kidding.

The road leading to my hostel was abuzz with people and cars, and it took me almost an hour to get there. I didn't mind it that much, though, for the people were there for the festival just like I was, and seeing them made me feel the festive mood somehow, despite being about an hour too late. I should have walked to my hostel as well, had I known it's just a straight line from the wharf. My friends were already checked in two days ago, so I just had to check in myself, take a shower, and look for them in the not-so-small city.

very late, but... lunch time yaaay!
 Piece of cake, for sure.  

Showered, number two-ed, changed. Now off to the best place in the world - the mall! Got myself a taxi to Ayala Center Cebu where I was supposed to meet up with the rest and fill my protesting stomach. However, according to them, they're still in the middle of a parade somewhere in the city, so I killed time roaming around the newly-improved mall (that looked a lot like Greenbelt). I wished to be in the thick of the action, but alas, I was too hungry for that. Food before, uhm, festival? Yeah, good enough for me. Off to McDonald's!

Fast-forward to around 4PM. Finally met Jenneth, Sarj, and Ted for a late lunch at some resto. Got a good look at what I missed through their cameras. If only they knew how much I wanted to rip off their cameras out of bitterness, they would have ripped off my limbs instead wehehehe.

Anyway, after lunch, we went out to the mini-park outside of the mall to admire the sight (the beautiful Cebuanos) while waiting for Dennie, a local TB we met before in Manila, and Evans, an American TB working as a teacher in China. Darkness fell upon us, and there they were. Now the group is complete! Time for picture-taking!

Alas, Jenneth and Sarj had to leave us to catch their flight back to Manila. Thus, I was left with Dennie and Evans. Jeez, I forgot what happened next, 'twas a long time ago. Will update this when I remember hehehe.
