MACTAN: Shangri-La + Mother's Day

Thursday, June 7, 2012
We celebrated mother's day at Cebu. We stayed there for two nights because my mom had work. My dad slept only for a night because he had to attend a homecoming. Therefore, my mom had me and my brother alone for the whole weekend.

Growing up, I can say that I got used to my mom traveling abroad from time to time. If I remember it correctly, I cried every time she left and stopped crying when I was in fourth grade. Maybe her work also became the reason why I grew up closer to my dad and therefore consider myself as a daddy's girl. I never asked myself who I loved more, because I love them both equally. I always prayed for the day when I'll be as close to my mom as I am close to my dad (actually, our family agrees with the psychology that the son would be closer to the mom and the daughter will be closer to the dad). God does listen to prayers. When I reached college, I finally got to be my mother's friend; not only her daughter. She's more like a sister to me already. She knows I smoke, she knows I drink. She knows so much about me right now that I never thought she would. Well, patience is a virtue.

This Cebu trip was definitely a gift of God to us. We stayed at Shangri-La Mactan, Ocean View.

I can't post pictures of my mom due to her work (still can't understand why).

Shangri-La amazes the hell out of me.

First night, we ordered room service cause I was gonna meet a friend.

I have nothing negative to say about Shanri-La Mactan!! I love it to the core! Will definitely go back!
