My recent trip to merlion city of Asia – Singapore was indeed very fruitful. I achieved and accomplished my primary reason of travelling – to do an international bench-marking as part of my final requirement to finish my degree. Admittedly Singapore was just a fall out plan but turned out to be a pretty good alternative of my top choice. Malaysia and Thailand were my target due to financial consideration and the vibrant culture that we can emulate. However, due to last minute craze, I opted to visit Singapore instead via bus from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
So far I have couple of things that I find interesting during my 3-day stay the trans-shipment port capital of Asia. But for now I will just highlight one of them – the transport system. That includes the public utilities such as taxis, buses, monorails and trains.
It’s been a while that this blog has been silent. This time I made a commitment to update this religiously. More updates on places that are worthy to be visited will be featured here. It is my goal to help fellow travelers and backpackers in terms recommendations and reviews.
I have couple of travels that i have yet to upload..
So stay tuned for more updates and exciting places to explore.. only here in Viajes del Beaunito
This is one of the best churches I’ve ever since here in Cebu. I do apologize because my memory doesn’t serve me right that I can’t really recall the exact town where this church is located. If anyone of you know the town down south please let me know.
I took these photos while on our way to Sumilon Island. Due to nature’s call we dropped by a gasoline station to pee and refuel our service. It was the owner of the gasoline station who suggested to visit the abandoned church.
I can see that indeed this magnificent infrastructure was a bit for quite sometime. But today, it’s undergoing a total face lift.
After a long time of dreaming to explore Sumilon Island, at long last it’s a dream come true. Tomorrow will be the day of its fulfillment. I would like to thank Karla Paner and her team in letting me join her team for this trip.
Every time I visit a place, the first thing I need to see is their church. That’s why as you can see in most of my entries here I featured the different churches of the places I’ve explored here in Cebu province. I don’t know, it seems like there is a magnetic force the draws me near to this kind of edifices. Then I just find my eyes feasting the beauty of the golden structure.
One of the good architectural designs I’ve seen in a church is the St Catherine’s Church in Carcar City. The church was built in 1859 during the Augustinian Friars and it is the second oldest church in Cebu. St Catherine’s Church was named after the town’s patron saint St. Catherine’s of Alexandria. The design of the church is admiSt Catherine’s Churchred for its Byzantine architecture, Greco-Roman altar and twin bell towers.
Every November 25th the town attracts thousands of devotees & visitors from different walks of life to pay homage to our Saint Catherine’s of Alexandria. Today the church stands historically on the top of the hill with peeled paints, rotten woods and cracked foundations, to the point of dilapidation. People noticed the changed of its physical structure but these defects did not change the profound devotion to the Blessed Mother.
During my recently concluded trip down south of Cebu, I came across this marker situated within the town plaza. In fact, the marker is fronting the town hall of Argao. This marker is considered to be the oldest electrical post in Argao. The e-post was erected circa 1927. It’s a clear manifestation that the architectural structures long before were of good quality that can last up to several decades.
