After spending a day in Manila, we flew south to Cebu, which is a province in the Philippines consisting of approximately 168 islands. I was excited about Cebu since the lechon (roasted suckling pig) there is legendary. We opted for CnT Lechon, where they chop up the suckling pig in front of you behind plexi glass and you have to buy it by the kilo. It was savory, juicy, and delicious.
Per Filipino tradition, we also hung out at the mall in Cebu. There were lots of fun photo ops to be had.
Next, we took a ferry to the province of Bohol. We stayed at Amarela Resort on Panglao Island. It was a lovely resort with a nice view of the beach.
We had fun hanging out with our friends’ son, Dek, at Amarela Resort. Kyle enjoyed pushing him on the swing, and we also chilled out in the pool area with him.
Amarela Resort had some pretty good food as well. I couldn’t get enough of the garlic rice that they served at breakfast. I don’t know why every culture doesn’t make garlic rice for breakfast, but it is definitely one of my favorite new breakfast meals.
Tomorrow, we’ll go over the epic countryside tour we took in Bohol. We saw the tiniest primate in the world, played with butterflies, and admired the amazing Chocolate Hills.
