    -- rolling lechon
    -- breakfast with puto and sikwate
    -- art stuff for sale, e.g. paintings from cebuanos
    -- furniture shop where you can see people carving furnitures
    -- guitar factory with someone making guitar
    -- bibingka tasting where you can see someone cooking the bibingka
    -- cheap seafoods
    -- he likes to buy arts from Cebu
    -- night life better than arena, infinity, and jaguar
    -- historical places
