I don’t really have much to do right now while waiting to check in. Cebu airport has limited things to do. Guess I’m too used to Changi airport’s wide range of shops.
From the 6th to 11th of May, had a mother-daughter vacation in cebu. This is my first time in Philippines. We stayed at Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. The people there are so friendly, and omg, the service is out of the world. Whoever trained the staff at the resort should come to Sg and train those in the service industry.
We arrived at Plantation and decided to keep activities to a minimum.
Went for lunch first cos I was hungry (when am I ever not?)
Me by the saltwater pool! If I’m not wrong, we have four saltwater pools and three fresh water pools.
After that we headed back to shore to cycle around the resort. We had a free 1 hour bicycle ride everyday.
We were so exhausted by early evening that mum and I decided to have room service that night
Day 2: City tour
Woke up early for the city tour.
So bloody good!😋
Went back to the resort for lunch at Fiji Restaurant. The resort itself has four eateries so we didn’t have to go out for meals.
Went to the saltwater pool for some kayaking.
Our dinner at Palermo Restaurant! The steak and pasta were so awesome! I’m salivating thinking about it! And the best part is, the premium steak is only S$15!!😱😱
Had to dress up for the night..
Woke up at 4am!!! The journey was 3 hours omg! And that’s only one way. But it was worth it, waking up early. The whale sharks were so beautiful and gentle!
(Ps we’re not allowed to touch the sharks! Touching them will result in a huge fine or even jail! So if you google and find pics of tourists touching the sharks, it’s all bs! They probably got punished. These mammals are being observed by marine biologists)
FYI, the sharks look huge but they’re only babies! Their mums, whom we call Big Mamas, are as big as a bus!
This was my first time swimming with sharks and I’m so glad I can tick it off my bucket list ☺️
Thereafter, we went to a waterfall nearby.
Only mum went into the water. It was too cold for me.
Another pic of our resort
Another busy day for us!
Breakfast to start our day!
The coral reefs were beautiful! But we both got stung countless times by jellyfish 🌵🌵
Lunch to recharge before we go for our paddle board session
Meditating on my board
For dinner, we went back to Palermo Restaurant to celebrate Mother’s Day. Had to dress up for the occasion.
A wonderful evening well spent with my mum ❤️
Day 5: Live Shooting Range
Breakfast pic first hehe
Palm/card reading and henna
We went for rock climbing as well
The live shooting range!
In the evening, we had yoga on the paddle board
Day 6: Goodbye Cebu
