    This is one of the better design malls that I've ever been in. There's a small park inside so children can play. Also many of the restaurants are accessible without coming inside the building. There's a large variety of shops. Something for everyone.

    This is the oldest church in the country so it has a lot of history including having the oldest religious image (image of Sto. Nino de Cebu). As a Roman Catholic, I have visited it a few times and would really recommend it to other Christians.

    Last week, I received a message from my fellow actress, mommy Doris Banaynal on Messenger that I'll be a part of the cast of the upcoming promotional and educational video of Casa Gorordo Museum, which is owned and managed by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Incorporated (RAFI) under the Culture and Heritage focus area since when it opened to the public in the year 1983. I was thrilled to shoot again after almost a year of community quarantine and this is my first film project in this brand new year 2021. A good start for my year.

    We are asked to dramatize and reenact the traditional "pamamanhikan" or "pamalaye" in the Philippines during the eighteen-hundreds of the 19th century. This is usually a formal occasion when the man together with his family members formally asks the woman’s hand in marriage in front of her parents, grandparents and the rest of her family.  Casa Gorordo is the perfect setting of a colonial era house which is known as "balay na tisa" (house with tiled roof) during the Spanish occupation in the country located in the historical district of Parian near Colon Street (the oldest street in the Philippines).

    We have to wear the national dress like the traditional Barong (an embroidered long-sleeved formal shirt for men) and  Filipiniana dress/traje de mestiza (a traditional dress for women) to depict the time period in history.

    I realized it was my first time to get inside the museum. I'm not even aware of the history of the house, but because of the guidance of our script writer-researcher, Mr Renren Tabada Alatraca, we learn to appreciate its interesting facts and trivia that open our senses during the entire shoot. It made us understand the background story of the house that we can apply in our performance as actors as we play each character effectively.

    The museum observed the strict health protocols for the staff, the crew and the cast to follow. We're told to shoot our scenes by batches. Some actors in the other batch weren't with us during the shoot and it was quite a challenge for us to act as if they're with us.

    A beautiful Oasis on top of the hill. Bring your walking shoes but there are plenty of places to rest. Once you get up top some of the best views that's views of the city.

    Beautiful to visit during at night. Though visiting this place during the day is great too if you want to see the Cordova bridge.

    It can be crowded in the main viewing area but there are plenty of space for everyone.

    Although one of the biggest within the top 10, I like it alot as it's manageable. Chess, archery, great eats, scooters, massage chairs, but most of all it was all walkable within reason! Best of all free a/c bus to Fuente Circle and SM Cebu.
    Like all other malls it has tons of shopping, cinemas and grocery store. But the free bus was waht I liked as it got me to the circle where my hotel was and totally left on time and was clean. Thumbs up!
