Taoist Temple

Beverly Hills where the Taoist Temple is located is home to affluent Cebuano-Chinese families.

Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge

On the picture is the Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge. It is said to be the world’s longest center span extra-dosed cable stayed bridge. It connects Mactan Island (where the Cebu International Airport is) and Mandaue city (part of the main island of Cebu). It somehow reminds me of the Tsing Ma Bridge in Hongkong because they're both close to the airport and have busy ports underneath.

Next to Makati, Cebu is my favorite city in the south. It has all the amenities of a modern city, close proximity to the beach and that well-known Visayan charm (less chaotic and friendlier than Manila). Even Cebu's SM Department Store rivals that of the SM Megamall (Mandaluyong) in terms of size. It's Ayala Center, another department store, boasts of international clothes brands. Big companies in Manila would usually have their branches in Cebu. Most of all, I love Cebu because it serves as my jump off point to the other islands in the Visayas and Mindanao and has direct flights to Hongkong and Singapore. Dumaguete, Bohol, Ormoc and Bacolod can be reached comfortably by a ferry.
