Weekly Photo Challenge – Graceful


This weekly photo challenge is about graceful. Cebu City and the entire Cebu Province has just celebrated the famous Sinulog Festival.

Despite the security threats, Cebu City and its government together with the policemen and the country’s network providers, Globe and Smart made their best efforts to ensure a peaceful event. Congrats to all the men and women who made the event successful.

During the Sinulog Festival, the contingents for the dance competition waited their way on the designated streets in Cebu City and while I was not there this year, I’m very sure they all remain graceful when they had their presentation on the stage in Cebu City Sports Complex.


This was from Sinulog last 2016. Despite the heat of the sun, the contingents remain graceful.

Me and my family did manage to went to church on the wee hours in the morning of the Grand Parade and I really admire the people going out of their way to hear mass and solidify their faith to Señor Santo Niño.


How about you, how do you interpret this week’s photo challenge?

Weekly Photo Challenge – Ambience

There are so many beautiful places around the world and some of the best places you can find the best ambience are in the comforts of your home, your country’s local parks, hotels or some tourist attractions.

I have not been to so many countries but some of my favorite places for relaxation is my own room, I love the ambience, the comfort and the convenience.

When my sister brought me to Elsalvador (a beach resort in Danao City, Cebu, Philippines) early last year, I instantly love the place, the people and the ambience. My brother also brought me and the rest of my family back there during his birthday. Though the place does not have a very nice beach but I certainly will go back when I need time to unwind.



I love traveling and before I embarked on an Indochina trip from Vietnam-Cambodia-Thailand, I researched for hotel accommodations which I believe has a good ambience. True to what I expected, Bou Savy Guesthouse, Ta Som Guesthouse and At Smile House delivered my expectation.



How about you?

Weekly Photo Challenge – Names

This is so timely, I started blogging from here and this is what I missed the most, joining the Weekly Photo Challenges, so thought of joining today.

I said timely, because when I was active here several years ago, I used ilovemandaue as my username but now, I have changed my username to arveesblog2016.
