Sinulog 2014

20131205-124534.jpg

Sinulog is a dance ritual in honor of the miraculous image of the Santo Nino. The dance moves to the sound of the drums and this resembles the current (Sinulog) of what was then known as Cebu’s Pahina River. Thus, in Cebuano, they say it’s Sinulog.

More than just the meaning of the word is the significance of the dance. Historians now say that Sinulog, which is of pagan origin, is the link between the country’s pagan past and its Christian present.

What began as a revival of an old dance brought government, business establishments, schools, pilgrims, artists and private individual together like never before. The attempt to enhance cultural awareness gave the Cebuanos a shared passion, a collective identity. In the end the Sinulog did give Cebu a culure. And a name. Pit Senyor!

Badian Island Resort and Spa

20131126-115819.jpgThe most anticipated season of the year has finally arrived. Get the chance to experience the Badian Lifestyle at the Badian Island Resort and Spa.

Preparations are now in high gear for their traditional Christmas celebration slated for the night of December 24th. The program, called ‘Pasko sa Isla’ is filled with fastidiously prepared entertainment spots that assure gaiety and excitement for the entire evening. ‘White Christmas’, which follows on the evening of December 25th, is fine dining interspersed with social dancing; a night meant for bonding with loved ones.

20131126-124232.jpg  Finally, their grand extravaganza ‘Sylvester on the Island’ will come their way on the night of December 31st. This fabulous way of ushering in a new year is a resort staple that they do without fail each and every year; and guests have continued to rave about it year after year.

Located in the Southwest coast of Cebu, the recent syper-typhoon Yolanda did not affect the resort. This has allowed them, thankfully, to make their holiday preparations unhindered.

It has likewise allowed the Resort to remain fully operational and guests are enjoying their holidays in this Romantic Paradise Island.

Contact us now at +63.2.564.5070 / +63.918.404.9927 or silverphoenixtravel@yahoo.com / info@silverphoenixtravel.com to make your reservations! 🙂
