Product of Boredom


During offs, me, Zhe and Xhang just stay in our dormitory and just sleep, eat, chitchat or spend our time infront of the pc up to sawa. And because we taught it's not productive, we decided to go to church downtown of Cebu. We ride a jeepney and have our first stop at the Cebu Cathedral. There we took pictures unfortunately, there was a wedding so we decided to moved to our next stop which is the Basilica de Sto. Ni ño.





 It was the only church I've visited na hindi nauubusan ng tao, before the sun rises and till dark, as in puno talaga ng mga devotees ni Sr. Sto. Ni ño. It was famous not only in the Philippines but also to tourists. In any corner of the church you can see devotees praying, some were kneeling from the door to the altar, some were patiently waiting for their turn in line just to see the figure of Sto. Ni ño which is kept in a private room inside the church, and almost everyone were taking pictures. Outside the church were "dancing ladies", sila yung mga babae na nagbibenta ng candles with four colors: red for love, green for succes relationship, blue for peace, and yellow for success in undertakings, at nagdadasal para sa bumibili...It was featured also at Rated K hosted by Korina Sanches in one of her topics. Then our last stop was the Magellan's Cross, kung saan tinurok ni Magellan 'yung cross which symbolizes that they've been there and was able to colonized Cebu. That's why until now, we cannot deny the fact that we're embracing the Spanish culture without our knowing: in some of our dialects, the churches and other landmarks, being a Catholic, the saints were just a few proofs of Spanish Regime in the Philippines.  And that's also one reason bakit maraming magagandang babae at lalake sa Cebu...


We end up our day tired but full of happiness...at a day we've discovered some of Cebu's landmarks and become witness of it's history...
