Bisita sa Parian experience kicks off this Friday

Pick and Pay at the Bisita sa Parian. The nifty little tongue twister is also an invitation to a one-night only bisita (visit) to the historical district of Parian, once the center of society and culture of Old Cebu.

Pocket activities surrounding the Cebu Heritage Monument are available starting 6pm to 11pm on Friday, September 11, just in time for Cebu City Tourism Month. PICK from the following:

  1. Tartanilla time! Take a leisurely horse-drawn carriage ride around Parian’s festive Bisita night and catch glimpses of the outdoor performances from the Sandiego Dancers, Children’s Joy Foundation Rondalla and eskrima (or arnis, a Visayan martial art). This uniquely Visayan carriage is distinguished by its two rows of seats arranged across each other, a back entrance, and distinctive design element by its maker. It fits only a maximum of 4 per ride, PAY only P25 per adult (minimum 2 adults per ride), children under 12 ride free.
  2. Museum-hop. Two museums within walking distance from each other are open until 11pm just for the day. The Yap-Sandiego house is widely considered the oldest Chinese house built outside China and houses the Hispanic antiques of the present owner. In the garden, Café Rafael serves Cebu lechon (whole spit-roast pig), chicharon (pork crackling from the town of Carcar, famous for the delicacy), pusô (hanging rice), torta (a pastry made with egg yolk and tubà or coconut wine), sikwate (hot cocoa), and other Cebuano delicacies. A few steps away is the Jesuit House of 1730, the oldest dated house in the country, discovered relatively recently hidden in plain sight inside a working warehouse and houses the well-curated Museo Parian sa Sugbo. PAY entrance fees at P50 for adults and P15 for students.

  3. Selfie with history. Stop for a quick selfie or self-we with mimes dressed as historical characters pivotal in Cebu’s history: Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, a Spanish friar, Spanish soldiers, the king of Cebu Rajah Humabon and his Queen Hara Humamay. Click, load and hashtag #ThousandJourneysCebu! PAY nothing, but donations are encouraged.

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
