I’ve been back in Cebu for a two-week vacation since Monday!
It’s my first time to getaway from the island since July, so it’s really a long time coming to my beloved Sugbu. By the way this is not really a vacation and to witness the mother of all Philippine festivals, the Sinulog Festival, this weekend. I was permitted to be on leave for that long because (a) I have to renew my CPA license which will expire next month (b) have a medical check-up because after month of doing graveyard shifts my body isn’t what it was anymore and (c) I need a break. But of course there are some hidden agendas involved, lots of ’em. The only thing I am can divulge is that I have to visit RC-san’s resting place for me to move, stop wearing black and say the last ‘good bye’. It’s quite an all-in-one kind of trip.
In Boracay I don’t have anything but work and work, solitude and pressures, insomnia, sickening graveyards shifts, headaches and coughs, a few friends, zero-night life, some bitches to annoy and an on-and-off love affair with beach running. But here in Cebu, I’ve got everything I wanted; my younger brothers and families, dear friends and classmates, a strong Protestant church, a healthy running lifestyle, a cheap cost of living, and an infinite supply of heavenly ladies. A simple yet happy life. I’m all too happy to be back in my comfort zone here in Cebu where I left my heart at.
I am in Southern Leyte now.
