Suroy-suroy sa Sugbo! PART 1: Cebu Places, Food, and Travel

Third week of May (2011).I just found myself taking pictures of interesting subjects which catches my attention while on travel (here) in the Queen City of the South.

Monday. 6:30pm  is my original flight schedule going to Cebu but due to some technical concerns, it was moved to 8:00 pm. Emote pa nga ako sa FB. May nagcomment tuloy ng “Plane Always Late.” sa status ko, referring to the airline company?? Never mind, delayed pero I’m sure para din naman sa safety ng mga pasahero—sabi din ng tol ko sa blogging na si Balance (

Tuesday.morning.While I was on choosing mode on which of the 2 shoes am I going to wear that will match in my Monday uniform. “Sawa na ako sa Black shoes kaya tipong pa "cool" ang get-up ko this time”.

Wednesday. I am not feeling well. “Pakiramdam ko sinusunog ang dibdib ko at mapait ang panlasa. Naisip ko Magpatsek-up ulit, pinapahirapan na naman ako ng hyper acidity. For sure, nasobrahan na naman ako ng juice at softdrinks,” I’ve texted my wife.

Thursday. I and Zette, the Unit Manager of Carcar Unit, visited 1 of our program member. Her business is shoes and sandals making. “Sayang hindi ko nadala camera ko para naiblog ko kung paano ginagawa ang espadrille shoes na uso ngaun,” I said.

Friday. Me, Larry, Erick, Norman, Ker, Mariz, and Venus while in  Metro Gaisano and SM – finding the right colors for our uniforms! Lunch @ Golden Cowrie- our favorite lutong bahay resto here in Cebu.We ended-up watching “Pirates of the Caribbean 4” @ SM cinema.

Saturday. From a meeting in Samboan (Cebu) going back to Dalaguete while waiting for the Ceres Bus to depart at Liloan Port and Bus Terminal.

Sunday. Lunch with the Bookkeepers of Visayas 2A Region then I decided to go to Chuangwa Hospital for my hyper acidity check-up unfortunately there was no schedule of OPD on Sundays. “Sayang ang pamasahe at 2 hours na byahe buti na lang may classic savory sa katapat na robinson’s cybergate nakawala ng pagkabagot,” I posted on my FB!

Fifth Summer Destination: "Real FARMville" of Socorro, Oriental Mindoro (Philippines)

May 13, 2011
Socorro, Oriental Mindoro, Philippines

I've considered Oriental Mindoro as my second home province. Not because this is my wife’s place or my beloved Marinduque’s closest Island province. The province’s culture, nature and beautiful people are deeply close to my heart. Going back to this place is like going back to the same old place where I belong. 

Oriental Mindoro is just an hour away from Port of Batangas (via Fastcraft) or 2 hours equivalent if via RORO ship. I have been already experienced travelling both. Some who wants to save, RORO ticket is a wise choice yet for those into faster and speedy travel fastcraft is much better –also considering a little bit difference in fare.
Municipality of Socorro is more or less an hour via V-hire from the province's capital, Calapan City, wherein Calapan Port is located. 
Socorro is a 2nd class Municipality. Agriculture still provides the main industry with rice, fruits, and coconut products dominating. 
Wish I have more time to explore my second home and take pictures of Mindoro's native tribe- The Mangyans! Interesting to know that there are still large number of Mangyan population in the more remote parts of the municipality. Their cultures and traditions are still preserved and practiced.
