Last week, fellow Cebu Fashion Bloggers Jean, Doyzkie and I were invited to the media launch of SHERATON-- Cebu Mactan Resort and The Residences by Apple AppleOne Mactan.  An intimate lunch with Charlie Dang, Regional VP for Southeast Asia Marriott International, and Ray Manigsaca, President of AppleOne Properties Inc., set in Sheraton's showroom provided insight on how this upscale property would change Mactan's resort living in 2020.

If you've been following this blog long enough, you will know that I am all about interiors, DIY and home improvement projects and showrooms are everything to me.  It was exciting to hear the big wigs talk about the property in general but what was even more exciting was the thought of getting the feel of how the residences would look like!  I mean, seriously, we're talking about a world-class facility with "modern interiors, clean lines and luxurious materials such as natural stone, rattan, marble, plush fabrics and wood."  I am no architect or interior designer but you know the feeling that somehow, certain things have that strong connection and impact on you?  Yes? no? Not making any sense? Yeah, well. I don't get me too, sometimes. Haha!  Okay, I'm talking too much.  Leaving you with a couple of photos I took of their gorgeous (an understatement) spaces and a few more materials to give you better insight into this top-notch resort and condo-hotel that is Sheraton Cebu Mactan.

Portraits, Stories, Lessons | Capturing Faces of Cebu with Huawei P9

Cebu, being the gateway to the south, is home to a diverse group of people with different backgrounds and ethnic traits, with shared or different dialects.  They're here either for work, for permanent relocation or simply for leisure.

In my 3 years of Nursing school, I have met more individuals belonging to different groups and social classes than in all of my years living in Cebu combined.  This is so because we were made to immerse ourselves in different far-flung corners of the province, staying 1-2 weeks at the most, giving us just enough time to get to know the locals.  And in these 3 years, I have come to appreciate those that do blue-collar jobs, the ones who put in hours of work under the blistering heat or the chilling cold rain.  The people who earn just enough to feed a family or even just themselves.

In an attempt to recognise these hardworking individuals, the husband and I embarked on a short photowalk in one of the busiest and most visited place in Cebu-- the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño.  Armed with just my Huawei P9 and the guts to ask people for a photo, we started at midday right in the heart of the basilica and worked our way into the busy streets of Colon.

With Huawei P9 dual lens camera co-engineered with Leica, capturing portraits of people working hard to earn a living is made easy with its 12MP, 27mm Leica optics camera.  Touch focus option and shallow depth of field effect add more drama and character to my photos.  In a sea of people, capturing your subject will not disappoint with its soft, dreamy bokeh effect.  For someone who loves bokeh, the Huawei P9 is my perfect companion without the weight and bulk of a regular camera.

I talked to some of my subjects (given that some photos were stolen shots) and they gave me a lot of insight and inspiration-- be it for work, love, or life in general.  They are optimism, resilience and patience personified-- or maybe even more.  Truly, you can never judge a person just by how they relate to you, how they look, and even with just their facial expressions.  They may be all smiles for the camera, but behind that are life stories that are thought-provoking, heart-rending and even life-changing.

If there is one thing that this little project has taught me, it's that, resilience has got to be one admirable trait that we all possess.  Our ability to find joy in the ordinary, our ability to smile despite tribulations, and our unwavering faith and undying optimism truly makes us unique in our own little ways.  And in Cebu, you will find all that and more-- challenging you to change the way you see the world one hardworking soul at a time.

Shopping for luxury items in Cebu means ordering online and dealing with customs and shipping fees that almost equals the amount of the item you're buying. It is a luxury in and of itself and that makes the buying experience a wee bit more troublesome. With all the unnecessary fees and the waiting game, the excitement in buying your first or second or 10th luxury bag, would've died down by the time it is finally in your hands. So wouldn't it be nice if we had luxury shops in Cebu that are not only accessible but has items that are made affordable as well?

Traveling and shopping always go hand in hand. Whether it's your first time in a foreign country or the nth time in your favorite city, no trip is ever complete without buying something for yourself as a souvenir or for your family as gifts.

So imagine a membership card that lets you earn miles every time you travel AND shop. A card that you can use to purchase goods and services without having to worry about fluctuating exchange rates. A multi-currency card that can hold up to 10 currencies at any given time and one that contains a PHP wallet so you can use it both in domestic and international transactions.

All that and more is the all new Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles Travel Card. The first in the industry, and by one of the best airlines in the country.
