This building is the Ayala-FGU Center located in Cebu Business Park. Its one of the prime business address here in the city. The photo was kinda gloomy because the day was very dark and rainy due to the typhoon. I tried working on the photo to make it little brighter but its not as crisp as the original copy.
Its quite stormy here in Cebu but its okay as summer was really HOT! At least the hills are greener now. Have a nice day!

This is our Friday afternoon place, it is where friends usually go for dinner, watch movie, shop or simply sit in café and watch people and make up stories. :P

Along the main road abound these ancient houses. I think they are over hundred years old. But it is really sad that the government can't do anything to preserve these National Heritage. Majority of the houses converted the ground floor into shops - bakeries, tailoring shops, barber shops, mini-eateries, etc. The above picture got a funeral parlor on the ground floor.

Bagacay Lighthouse - Built by the Americans in 1904, this lighthouse can be found in the municipality of Liloan. The place is around 18 kms. north of Cebu City. Liloan is the local term for "place of whirlpools".

When you go to a hotel, bar or board luxury cruise ships and you hear a great band performing, chances are these performers are Filipinos and most probably in a group of 7 band members 3 or 4 are Cebuanos. :) I'm sure Simon Cowell will never say any mean words when he sees them perform.
The Cebuanas are known for their beauty, grace and charm. I should say so because my mom is a Cebuana!

The man is watching a parade of floats and dancers as reflected on his sunglasses. You can say through the man’s expression that he is jaded probably saw a lot of fiestas in his lifetime. Or just tired with all the activities. What’s bad about some of Philippine town fiestas are the proliferation of product endorsements. You can see that companies will try to cover all bases to gain exposure.

I did not give justice to the color as I'm still a newbie taking photographs -- tried working on it on Photoshop but I've got to learn a lot before i can get the desired effect. I would really love to learn a few things on photo editing -- its just that i didn't have the time to study. I know, I'll find time for this...

After a day of swimming and bumming around, finally, i found time to stroll along the beach. The cool breeze, the setting sun and the gentle water soothed this tired body and uplifted the spirit.

A morning stroll along the beach, you'll find fishermen hurrying back with their catch. I like this small banca because of its sail. The orange sail stood out in the bright morning sun and the blue water.

One of the oldest churches in the Philippines. Boljoon Church is situated in the southern part of Cebu Island. It was built by Spaniards in the year 1599. The church is facing the sea thus the weather-beaten look. Some groups, like SM Cebu (notice the HUGE billboard), help in the restoration of historical landmarks like Boljoon Church. Might help if they remove that billboard.
