They say that if something’s pulling you back from doing something, don’t hesitate to stop what you’re about to do. But, not in my case because I braved whatever was pulling me back and went to Cebu with or without consent. I’m not saying that what I did should be something that you’ll follow because you have to weigh your decisions still. And in my case, I have done mine and my experience didn’t disappoint because my Sinulog2017 experience was lit! Want to know why? Read on.
1. I’VE ATTENDED MASS IN THE BASILICA
Oh man! It has been a while that I haven’t had the chance to say my thanks and prayers to Sto. Niño in the Basilica because I’ve been in Bohol for a year now. Though I visit Cebu every now and then, it’s very rare for me to visit the Basilica because of time constraints but this time, I’m telling you I did it! I braved the heavy rain and felt so renewed. What is Sinulog without Sto. Niño anyways?
2. I’VE SEEN MY FRIENDS
Yes, it’s been more than a year that I haven’t seen my friends and dang! My heart’s elated to have seen such handsome and beautiful faces. But not only am I happy to see their faces again but I’m happy to be with them again. The feeling of hanging out with my bunch is still the same. I can still feel the same excitement and the same chills whenever we’re together. The laughters and the games everytime there’s a drinking session, oh man! I need to stop because I might not be able to finish this if I won’t stop by now.
3. I ENJOYED ALL THE PARTIES
Man! I’ve been to two parties in one night and dang! It was lit! Though I don’t really drink alcoholic beverages, it never hindered me to enjoy the night and have fun because my friends surely made me feel that I don’t have to drink just for me to fit in! We went to ETC Paintensity and headed to Steve Aoki’s party thereafter. I’m just glad that we moved to the Ayala grounds because there was a chaos at The Greenery Mabolo not later than the time that we left. So, I didn’t mind being swooshed away by the guards in Ayala thinking that we were drunk because WE WEREN’T! We were just having fun with all the games while drinking tequila! 😉
4. I’VE HAD LEGIT COFFEE AND FOOD I’VE BEENC CRAVING
I just couldn’t contain my happiness when I stepped my foot in the Queen City of the South because I knew by then that I’ll be able to drink my coffee and eat the siomai’s I’ve been craving. Wait wait wait! I need to stop because I’m craving again. Please stop me now!
5. I HAD FUN
No wait! That’s an understatement because I HAD SO MUCH FUN! LEGIT FUN! Because I never had the chance to do all the things aforementioned for some reasons. And though I only had roughly 24hrs to stay in Cebu, I have done wonders and did things I have always been wanting to do. I HAD LEGIT FUN! All thanks to my friends for never leaving my side and for always welcoming me with arms wide open and to Sr. Sto Niño for keeping everyone safe in that journey. Truly, you can do wonders!
So even if the telcos have decided to shut the mobile signals during the event, it didn’t really affect me because I’ve met my friends and trusted their words when they told me we’ll see each other here and there and on that specific time. I can’t wait to spend another day or two with all of them because all in all, my Sinulog2017 experience is LIT AF! And I’ll leave it to that.
