Since I participated here on the forum.

 

I was back to Cebu a few weeks ago, did not realize how much i missed it (2008 last trip)

 

So much i plan to come back in a few months, will spend more time.

 

Going to be a working visit, so may need to draw from some of your experience.

 

If i seem familiar, I was good friends with Paul, he was best man at my wedding. Hope my next trip get to say hello to David in Talisay. Its been a long time.

 

I was married for 14 years, separated for 7 of them. at 50 YO im starting over and diving into life 110%

 

I lived in Cebu in 2003 for about 7 months total, i still love everything about the Philippines, what some consider bad i still Love it.

 

Storing up more Patience for next trip :)

 

So greetings to all.

Yes it has been 'invaded by squilions of motor bikes!  On the road is like living in a beehive!    But...  :welcome:  back.

I was in Astorias, last time i was in Toledo they did not even have an SM mall.

 

I drove this time, I must say that is a tiring adventure. (car rental)

Welcome DK! I’m in Cebu also, traffic is definitely rough here so, I simply never get in a hurry to get anywhere and am always mindful that no matter where I’m going, it’s going to take a while. 

Enjoy your trip!

Asturias doesn't have a grocery store, but that is okay, there are three Gaisano's in Balamban. I prefer that Asturias remain a sleepy little municipality.
