  2. hi @Shivya! I found your message in this page real inspiring. If you come by to Philippines then come visit at Cebu. Be glad to tour with you around, coffee or tea if you like, better yet for anything fun. Namaste.

    • Thanks! I was in Philippines in March this year, saw Cebu just in passing. Spent most of my time in Bohol and loved it!

      • You’re welcome @Shivya! It’s nice to hear that you’ve been to Bohol. It’s my home. It would be exciting to catch you soon when you come back to Philippines. Let me know. Namaste.
