    This is the first time I come here for a massage. It is very comfortable and the price is very affordable. Especially the service attitude of Amy and Emma, ​​the massage staff who helped us, is very good. I will come again if I have the opportunity.

    If you have some time to spare, take a short boat ride to Caohagan Island from Lapu Lapu jetty in Cebu. The island has about 150 local families who make a living by fishing and selling ornaments made from shells. You can buy some fresh seafood and get them cooked by the locals.
    There is a entry fee of 200 php per person with kids charged at 100 php.

    It was my first time to visit the church as an adult (and almost a senior citizen at that). Years back when I was a child, my father (may he rest in peace) used to bring us kids to this church that had a black Mary as patron. People say the Virgin's intercession is miraculous, hence, plenty of devotees go there for their intentions.

    We got there at around 9PM and I heard the caretaker say, "let's close for now". Luckily, we were still admitted and lo and behold, there was a long queue towards the Virgin image even at that late hour, people silently waiting for their turn to venerate.

    After lighting a candle, paying my respects and saying my intentions for my God through the Mother's intercession, we made our way out to the market to catch a ride, where a lot of people were standing in every corner waiting for their ride, too. And it was already around 10PM!

    Anyway, the experience was sort of a 'bunot-tinik'; I felt great relief that I was able to revisit the church and expressed my sincerest prayer for the total recovery of my brother back home who's in an unresponsive wakefulness state. May the Lord hear my plea.

    'Para akong nabunutan ng tinik sa dibdib'. I felt like a spot in my heart was pierced. Sentimental lang...

    When you visit Olango, come to this place. Do not be diverted to the rip off "sanctuary" with the rickety boardwalk which you will pass to get here.

    it's a good place to stay in Lapu-lapu while waiting for your check-in time... though you have to carry with you your baggage because they don't allow you to leave your baggage on their baggage counter. :-(

    We went 3 times from Newtown to buy few souvenirs and electric appliances for our family…
    Unfortunately very dangerous place outside, many troubles with main entrance with wind, you could receive something on your head, no protection net, nothing secure…inside nothing changes since five years, just on second part no lift, very dirty…we had to go SM and Ocean close Cebu bridge to be secure, safe and not in danger.
    Make your choice now!??

    Their new branch has something to boast about, especially the attentiveness and accommodation they had given to us.

    one good thing about this mall is, it's just near the airport, and you can spend time here while waiting for your check-in time at your hotel, but there are only a few stall and boutiques to visit to.
