Cebu 2012: Day 3 Part 1

by erika

We all got ready at 10 a.m. and walked to the nearby Shamrock pasalubong center. Cheese stick, chicharon, otap, piyaya, and dried mangoes. We have already bought danggit through Ella’s on-the-job trainee.

We packed up our things and headed for Mactan. We dropped by Alegre Guitars but ended up not buying any because the lowest priced acoustic was worth P3,600. Ouch. So we just took pictures. Heeh. We did buy a guitar from a stall near Mactan Shrine. Mahogany, P1,300.

Lunch was at Fredz Sutukil. You get to choose a fish and they will cook it in three ways. Sugba, Tinola, Kilawin = Sutukil. The six of us shared one big fish, which turned out to be enough for us, and ordered additional dishes.

Garlic butter shrimp for me and Johnny. Squid for Jes and Ella. Halaan for Toni. Squid for Cyrus.

Everything, plus eight cups of rice, three fresh buko and cooking charge (yes, and they weren’t upfront with it) cost P1,500. Not bad. We walked out with food-babies again. There are a lot of stalls that sell shell crafts, shirts, accessories and other stuff outside.
