Dalaguete 300 years of grace and pride.

Feb 6, 2011.

The day I was able to set-foot Cebu’s Vegetable Basket and Summer Capital, Dalaguete. Been roaming and visiting beautiful places of Cebu from North to South and alas, Dalaguete is now listed.. Myriad thanks to Ms. Juliet Amazona of iTravel iTours for giving us, CBSi Bloggers, the chance to experience the lovely and serene place. Actually, if not because of Mark Monta of FaceCebu.net, Dalaguete will still be in my places-to-visit list. My greatest and sincerest gratitude to you sir Monta for the invite.

The original plan was to cover the “Dalaguete Tri-Centennial Run” since it was one of the events of the Municipality on celebrating its 300 years of existence – 300 years of grace and pride – and glad and proud to say, I experienced many things.

I am not a vege-type of person, but when we had our dinner together with the Municipal Tourist Officer – Sir Vic , print media writers from CDN and the FREEMAN, some runners, and Ms. Juliet at Maria’s Batchoy and Restaurant , all I saw on the dining table were servings of different types of foods, all with… vegetables. Did not want to disappoint them, did not have the guts to say, I am not a vegetarian, but what would I expect? I was in the vege-capital of Cebu, so? Veggies are to be served.

I ate… and ate… and ate… And it was, a Lot! Amazing! I was able to pig-out bunch of veggies for the first time in my life. Savoring and nomnoming the freshly and supahliciously cooked specialties of the place, and take note, with veggies on it – one of which was Chopsuey, mMmm… me Love! . Another experience worth to be included in my memoir.

After our sumptuous and voracious (and of course, healthy) dinner, we proceeded to the municipal gym to witness the All Star PBA Basketball Challenge. The crowd were so entertained because the famous local celebrities – Joross Gamboa, Christopher De Leon, Philip Salvador, etc – were part of the game. Few minutes passed, we headed to Jonadel’s Resort and Pension to rest… ZzZzzzz

Feb 7, 2011 – Fun Run Time! Another first time in me – to join a fun run. Splendid! Took some shoots at the meeting venue before the event started and at the fun run proper. I, with my co-bloggers’ Mark MOnta and Angeli Bas, decided to run with the 5k catergory.

Let the photos below speak my gazillion words.

Dalaguete is a place worth to visit to. The accommodating people, the clean and tidy surroundings and of course, the nature’s gifts – Osmeña peak, Obong Spring, etc. Unfortunately, was not able to visit the places mentioned, but surely, very soon… I will.
