Cebu is now in the news as the host to the 12th Asean Summit. Originally postponed for unclear reasons, the city is now busy hosting the participating heads of state, spouses, foreign ministers, and foreign and local press covering the events.

I have yet to experience getting caught in traffic as what most people expect during high-profile international events such as this one. Since our workplace is in the Asiatown IT Park which is right across the Waterfront Hotel summit venue, we thought we would be blocked access to and from it. Security was tightened but we were allowed passage to and from work, thankfully, without hassles.

At the homefront, the only hassle we are experiencing now is motivating the kids to prepare for their 3rd periodical exams which starts the day following the end of the summit. So the two specially declared holidays, Jan 12 (Friday) and Jan 15 (Monday) may be a much anticipated break for most, but it’s going to be a hectic review period for my two boys. πŸ˜€

Cebu, already beautiful, was made more presentable with the residual effects of the Asean Summit : the new street lights, the trimmed lawns, the clean curbsides…

I thought it was welcoming us when we were there, but actually was for the postponed initial sked…good thing it went ahead with the 2nd sked – sana sans any untoward incident.

We are now on the last day of the Asean Summit. So far, minus the occasional road blocks, it’s still peaceful around here. πŸ˜€

And yes, consider the “beautified” Cebu a welcome treat for you and Mitzi and the rest of the family who flew in last December. πŸ˜€

Hi Linnor. Actually, di nga sya hassle as we expected it to be. And thank God, ’twas peaceful. Wish ko nga lang wala din kaming pasok like the gov’t. offices and all schools πŸ™‚

Korek! Right now may pasok kami but the 2 kiddos, Matt and Kyle are here to review for their exams. And I am presently making their Pilipino simulation test.
