I was looking through my archive and in my personal files and I was surprised to find out that I didn’t have any spreadsheet on my first Cebu trip’s expenses. I’m pretty certain I wrote down all my expenses, but I guess after tallying it, I passed out because it was pretty darned expensive. I *am* quite a high maintenance traveler. I can rough it out, but as long as I’m traveling with people who doesn’t mind splurging, my weekend jaunts will always be over 10K >_<

1 This was kept low because I spent the night at my friend’s house in Makati, and on the way home, I took a regular taxi, instead the expensive airport taxi I usually take.
2 The was also kept low because I shared the cost of the taxi with Melo and Eric from the Mactan airport to Cebu. For our return flight, Melo and I rode Shangri-La Mactan’s free airport shuttle service.
3 It was mostly taxi, but since there were three of us sharing, the cost was kept at a minumum. The most expensive taxi ride was the Php 250 from our hotel to Shangri-La Mactan (unmetered).
4 We eat a lot. A huge chunck of this was due to Acqua, Shangri-La Mactan’s awesome Italian restaurant. The price is not so awesome though. Cheapest meal was the Php 88 dinner at Larsian.
5 I bought an extra SD card because I was anticipating that I would be taking lots of videos. Unfortunately, I forgot to charge my battery.
6 The bag! It was too cute! I can’t NOT buy it! T_T
7 That Php 30 Internet went a LONG way. Net Express across the University of San Carlos offers Php 8/hour Internet rates during off peak hours, and Php 12/hour during peak.
8 I bought an Island Souvenir T-shirt for my niece, some cellphone charms, Cebu Chorizo, dried mangoes and Shamrock otap.
