Everyone who have gone to this city before me all told me to try the ribs at Casa Verde. Hence, right after my trip to the Taoist Temple, I headed straight to the IT park to find out why these ribs are so famous! This Cebu trip has had me sipping mango shakes every single day. The serving was huge! The ribs are good but not as amazing as the size of the serving (I know that’s an unpopular opinion but whatevs). Also, the staff is pretty accommodating which I loved!
Since my tummy was full, I headed to Banilad Town Center again and started looking for a coffee shop. In my search for a coffee shop, I arrived at this quaint little nail salon inside a swimwear boutique. The name of the swimwear shop is Cabana and the nail salon is Nail Island. Nice theme, right? I want to bring their chairs home with me! Honestly, it was so relaxing, I fell asleep ¾ the time I was there.
No additional charge for regular nail polish. Pamper time came just as well because my nail polish is already chipped. I remembered Ms. O (Olen Juarez-Lim, who did our Professional Presence training) saying that there should only be two states your nails are in: clean and without polish, or with unchipped polish. Mine was neither.
I went back to the hotel to get my things, and if there was something I would miss about Cebu, it’s The Henry Hotel.
But then again, all good things come to an end. Before I knew it, I was in the airport at the wee hours of the morning, napping once again in one of the airport chairs (with my arms wrapped around the box of Lechon hahaha). Writing about the last part of my Cebu trip just made me crave traveling solo more. The photo below includes my newly manicured hands.
If I can’t travel solo, I would rather go with my favorite travel buddy (who in this case, my airport drop off and pick up crew)! I live a privileged life. Aside from having the means to travel quite comfortably (not luxurious, but comfortable), I have been blessed with a supportive life partner. Even though I know that there is nothing C wants more than to be with me (and he worries about me a lot), he never fails to give his 110% support for me. I cannot help but love this guy.
One of the saddest posts I always have to write are the last ones from a travel series. But looking over to the bright side, there will always be a next one. 🙂
