I Left My Heart In Samboan

 

I thought I’ve seen the best of Samboan. But I was wrong. I mean, my friend Irene took us there a few months ago and we extremely enjoyed Aguinid Falls and the nice beaches. But just like what Chris Tucker said in one of his films, indeed, ‘I ain’t seen nothin’ yet!’. LOL.

The four-hour road trip on my motor bike to the southern tip of Cebu was no picnic. But when I saw the real beauty of Samboan, all bad things were just forgotten. I never reached the ‘heart’ of the town during my previous trip. And I’m so thankful that this time, I finally did. I really enjoyed my short stay there. It was mind-blowing!

You know you’ve reached Samboan when you see this small kiosk with a statue of a farmer on the roof.

Road to the town church.

Samboan’s nice municipal hall.

And Satchmo had to pose.

Pretty nice job, ei! 🙂

The place is just so clean and green.

A watchtower which lies directly on top of Jacob’s Ladder.

And the view from the plaza – the beautiful sea.

There’s the sea! Wow!
