Guadalupe Parish Church: A New Beginning

The Parish Church of Barangay Guadalupe means a lot to me. Not only because I still currently live in Barangay Guadalupe but more importantly because I basically grew up in this church. When I was a kid, I was a member of the quite popular (during that time) Guadalupe Children’s Choir. And on weekends, I’d […]

Discovering Pitalo

The Pitalo Church in Pitalo, San Fernando, is one of the smallest churches in Cebu. I am not exactly sure about its actual size, but it is so small that it is often mistaken as a local chapel. I’ve traveled to the Southern tip of Cebu so many times but I’ve never actually tried making a […]

Rain or Shine

I was able to attend the third day of Novena at the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño last Saturday. I know you’ve seen this type of photos before, but allow me to post a couple of the shots that I snapped. The weather has been pretty bad lately. And I’m not just talking about drizzles. […]

Old Meets New in Balamban

Right after my ten-minute stay in the quiet little sea-side park of Pinamungajan, I was back on the road for the next leg of my trip. My next destination was Balamban. When I reached Toledo – which was less than 30 minutes away – I saw a couple of road-side signs with directions to a […]

Discovering Talamban

Believe it or not, the things I know about Talamban are but skin-deep. It’s a shame really since I am a true-blue Cebuano (plus the fact that Cebu is a really, really small city) and a lot of people think I know every nook and cranny of this city. Which is exactly why it was […]

Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod

SM recently unveiled their very modern chapel at the South Road Properties. The chapel was originally named Shrine of Mary, Mother of God. However, it was renamed Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod in honor of the first Cebuano saint. The Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod has 14 sunken gardens and can accommodate at least 800 […]

Southern Bend

So the last town that we visited was the Heritage Town of Boljoon. Boljoon is one of the oldest towns in Cebu. It is a 5th class municipality with 11 baranggays. Its main industries are farming and fishing. Boljoon’s coastal plains, cliffs, mountain ranges, and hills are all in very close proximity to the Bohol Strait. […]

Thirty Minutes in Alcoy

Sitting next to Dalaguete is the town of Alcoy. Situated more than 90 kilometers from Cebu City, Alcoy is bounded by Boljoon to the north, the Cebu Stait to the east, and Badian to the west. Although Alcoy recently has been getting a lot of media buzz thanks to the famed Tingko Beach and the much sought-after Black Shama […]

Dalaguete, Finally!

Two weekends ago, I was finally able to see the town church of Dalaguete. True, it wasn’t my first time in Dalaguete. However, it was the first time that I saw the awesome structure with my own eyes. One time, I tried to ‘discover’ where the church was and I ended up taking pictures of […]

Oslob Reborn

In 2007, I was introduced to the southern town of Oslob for the very first time. I saw its inner roads, met its people, and discovered its delightfully unique provincial charm. I instantly fell in love with it. In 2008, a very unfortunate incident took place in this sleepy little town. The church of the Nuestra Señora de la Inmaculada Concepcion and its rectory – two […]
