it’s been a month since I left the Queen City of the South.
I was one of the lucky ones to be deployed in Cebu last August. At first, I was so excited because it’ll be my first time to work in a new environment, but scared at the same time because I’ll be away from home for a couple of months, and meeting and dealing with new people has never been an easy thing for me.
To my surprise, our (well, “my”) work there has been very light, and the people in our work are very nice. I’m happy that I was assigned to PTM team under Ms. Arlie, and our project went really smooth. Then when I was transferred to Eval Team, I met Boss Rex, Nins, Che, and others, and they’re all very nice.
Livin there in Cebu was really fun. I was able to learn the daily languages that are essential, like for travelling. “Lugar lang” and “Palihog” were my overused words there 😀 . Every weekend, when I’m so bored staying in our apartment, I used to go to Ayala Cebu or SM Cebu, watch movies, or just walk around.
We also had the chance to roam around Cebu. I miss our trips to Moal Boal, Sto. Nino Church, Mr. A, Sutukil food places, Mactan Shrine, Magellan’s Cross, and our Island Hopping in Cebu! Yeah, it was work and leisure for us there!
I also miss the food places that we’ve tried there.. AA BBQ every night, Golden Cowrie, Chowabangga, Chicken Charlie, Casa Verde, and of course Jollibee, KFC, McDo and Shakeys hehe.
It was also a chance for me to meet some Cebu Rushers there. I was able to meet and greet @dreivance and @giantumulad, and I also met up with Manila Rushers like Ina, Dru, Merl, and Kim! It really felt like I was not that far from Manila.
There are other things that I really miss in Cebu.. the light traffic, the fresh environment, the gorgeous people, and a whole lot more. Given the chance that I’ll be deployed again there, I’ll gladly take it and fly back there again.
