A Cold Afternoon in Cantipla

The highland barangay of Tabunan is some 15 to 20 Kms from Cebu City. It can be reached through the Transcentral Highway which leads motorists straight to the Municipality of Balamban. This little highland barangay is known for fresh produce like sweetcorn, fruits, vegetables, and even flowers. One specific sitio – Sitio Cantipla – is popular among travelers. Recently, Cantipla has become a haven for families who want to escape the busy life in the city.

Exactly why is Cantipla awesome? I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Then, the yummy Adobo feast in one of the local carenderias. Yum!

Don’t forget the puso!

Then, try the Videoke machine.

We sat in awe as fog started to cover Cantipla.

Then, it got colder.

And colder.

It’s quite thick now. Amazing!

So, you have to be extra cautious when you drive!
