Apparently, people still go crazy during the annual Sinulog festival in Cebu. It's like having a full moon. I even saw a "werewolf" (see proof below).

Meeting up with Annie to watch fireworks.

Ended our night with a very spectacular fireworks display. Been awhile since I've seen something like this. It was breath-taking!
