    From my last Cebu trip, my friends and I visited Bridges Salon again.

    The salon owner and hairstylist is a Singaporean, who is one of three L'Oreal ambassadors to the Philippines. They offer cheaper hair color and services as compared to top salons here in Manila.

    Visit this blog entry I posted, entitled - From Hair Scare to Hair Care. I strongly suggest you visit this salon when you go to Cebu.

    They're transferring to a bigger and better location by October, so I'm excited to go back there for my hair color in November.

    Nobody goes there anymore, It's not worth the money (personally) likewise during low tide you wont enjoy it very much since some inflatables cant be used.

    Just do the Waterpark at Imperial Resort if you have the budget. Or just go beach hopping to Pandanon.

    Was in Cebu earlier this month for a business trip. Couldn't seem to find a milk tea store there like Gong Cha.

    I am not a milk tea drink but there is Bubble Tea in SM Cebu and I am not sure if there is one in IT park.

    Milk Tea doesn't really have a following here in Cebu

    CebuPac is currently having a piso-fare promo on Manila-Cebu and other domestic destinations. Sadly, there is no system-wide piso-fare promo.
