Gawaygaway is a barangay in the town of San Remigio in Cebu. This small cluster of houses rests a few kilometers from the main national highway, in the middle of sugarcane plantations, corn fields, and coconuts.
Read on to find out why we decided to visit this sleepy yet gorgeous little barangay up north.
We went to Gawaygaway to visit a man who was very close to my uncle. During his ‘forgettable’ juvenile days, when he decided to leave the city to look for ‘himself,’ this man welcomed him to his home with open arms.
On the way to San Remigio, we made a quick stop somewhere in Sogod.
Finally, after more than an hour, we finally arrived in Barangay Gawaygaway!
After traveling for several minutes through sugarcane fields, we saw cornfields. A clear indication that we were close.
Finally, several minutes later, we reached Gawaygaway Elementary School. This small barangay school only has 7 classes and 8 teachers. Isn’t that amazing?
Since it was the weekend, there were no students inside the school.
Satchmo and the classrooms.
Yay! I’ve finally seen Mabolo!
It was a very dry and hot summer!
After the quick stopped, we moved towards the home of the man we were visiting. They prepared two manok bisaya (Chicken Bisaya) when we reached the place. Definitely the best-tasting manok sinabawan (Chicken soup) EVER!!!!!
After lunch, I did a bit of exploring.

Do they travel here at night?
A nice looking river.
Yes, bikes go through this trail.
