Ayala Cebu Hosts Balik Cebu 2014 and Handumanan

As more balikbayans are expected to arrive in time for the Sinulog celebration from all over the world, tourists in the city will be in for an “unparalleled Cebu experience” this January 16. Initiated by the Cebu City Government through Cebu City Tourism Commission in partnership with  the  Department  of  Tourism,  Mactan  Cebu  International  Airport  Authority,  Sinulog Foundation  Inc.  and  some  volunteers  from  the  private  sector,  the  annual  Balik  Cebu  2014 Welcome Dinner and Handuman Cultural Center show will be on January 16, Thursday 5pm at the Ayala Terraces.

The  Balik  Cebu  Program  has  been  always  been  a  part of  Sinulog  activities  that  contributed largely to the increase of tourists since its inception. Now on its 13th year, the Welcome Dinner  hosted by Ayala Center Cebu will be serving local Cebuano dishes in “boodle feast” style that will certainly bring in nostalgic flavors of Cebu. Another addition to the dinner party will be the Handumanan or the Sugboanon Kanunayng Madaugon which showcases the best of Cebuano talents.

This  year,  in  the  aftermath  of  supertyphoon Yolanda  known  as  Haiyan  internationally,  Balik Cebu  is  responding  to  the  call  for  aid.  The  Balik  Cebu  committee  created  the  BalikBalay campaign to channel donations of balikbayans and other parties willing to help, into rebuilding lives of homeless survivors by providing funds for their dwellings. Starting January 6, Monday, dinner coupons worth Php300.00 each will be available at the Balik Cebu Booth at the Rotunda Area fronting Rustan’s. The booth is designed to help balikbayans who are in town for Sinulog to find activities and events that they could join. Take  part  in  all  the  festivities  this  January  only in  Cebu’s  premiere  shopping,  dining,  and  entertainment destination, Ayala Center Cebu.
