This religious event is celebrated every third Sunday of January which celebrates the festival of the Santo Niño. The old relic given to Hara Amihan later named Juana during her baptism became a famous religion icon in the island.
The Sinulog is a dance ritual of pre-Hispanic indigenous origin. The dancer moves two steps forward and one step backward to the rhythmic sound of drums. This movement resembles somewhat the current (sulog) of the river. Thus, the Cebuanos called it Sinulog.
Lots of street dancing with their very colorful costume, contest and parade.
You will hear people shouting "Viva Pit Señor!" (Hail Mister) everywhere. Other provinces adopted the festival with different name and concept.
Cebu Pacific Air
Cebu Pacific was the airline I used from Cebu City to the city of Singapore. This airline pioneered the what they call 'low fare, great value' strategy. It was a very smooth flight from Mactan International Airport to Singapore Airport that I did not even realize we have arrived.
The airline offers domestic flights to Bacolod, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Clark, Cotabato, Davao, Dipolog, Dumaguete, General Santos City, Iloilo, Kalibo (Boracay), Laoag, Legaspi, and Manila.
In the Year 2001, Cebu Pacific Air launches its International Operations and offered flights to Bangkok, Hong kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Incheon, Pusan, and Taipei.
If you want to have some fun, check the airlines' Fun Shop onboard and I am sure you will enjoy your purchase of a variety of gift items.

Inside the fort is a triangle garden. sometimes ceremony, such as wedding ceremony, is held at the garden.
Visit Olanggo Island
Got to know a few people in Cebu who decided to take me to Olanggo Island. Compared to other beaches, this one has no sand, just numerous open rest houses built on top of the ocean that's open to the public for free. They serve beers and seafoods fresh from down under. Water is clean and shallow. You could even see the rocks and small fishes swimming around.
