Vlog: Road Trip and Food Trip in Southern Cebu

Every year, the family goes on a road trip down south to pay a visit to our dearly departed. The cemetery we go to in Argao, being privately owned by the clan elders, has always been a serene place to spend the All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day holidays. It’s refreshing to be away from the city and the crowd for a few hours, and surrounded by loved ones—living and dead at that.

This time was a bit different. I went with a mission to see how many food I could try along the way.

I was asked if I could do a vlog for a page which is  almost my namesake. It was something I’ve never done before so I was naturally hesitant. After a lot of encouragement from a few best friends, I took the plunge and was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Documenting a journey and editing it to come up with a story brings a certain kind excitement, much like writing but different.

So here it is, the foods you can try on a road trip down south for kalag-kalag. Enjoy and check out The Queen City of the South, Cebu City page for more Cebu features!  ♥

Road to De-stressor

Drop everything, let ’em go
I need a breather, let’s hit the road
Take the wheel yet hold my hand
Turn up the music and I’ll sing with the band
Take me anywhere, I don’t care
Let’s make this our private road affair

Barely having enough time to do anything together anymore, road trips are always a much-appreciated breather that Mr. DM and I both enjoy. He loves driving (or has no choice but to) and I love being a passenger on long drives! Thanks to Philippine August holidays, we were able to hit the road and head on to the west side of Cebu to brave the windy weather and literally stop to smell the flowers (and some carabao poop). ♥
