Expectations vs Reality: Cangcua-Ay Private Beach Resort, Oslob Cebu

Hello there!

It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy with work and school for the past months; that’s why! Anyway, it is summertime again and same as you; I am also busy scanning and reading blogs of the best places to visit around Cebu or Cities nearby; then I suddenly realize I’d been to different places lately as well that I missed sharing in my own blog. 

The first entry of the year our “Expectations vs Reality” experience in one of the beaches in the south a Cebu. There was a time where this place was trending online that even my friends abroad were asking me about it. So, out of curiosity, we set forth to Cangcua-ay Beach Resort, Tan-awan, Oslob, Cebu.

This was the expectation…So enticing, isn't it?

And this is  "REALITY".

Is the hammock familiar? Where is the blue enticing water? hahaha! The benefit of the doubt; maybe we went there on a different weather condition. I searched for other bloggers who visited the place if someone could post a similar photo as the ad online but I didn't see any, just correct me if I'm wrong but this was just based on our experience.  I am setting the correct expectation here. hahaha!

These photos were edited just to set proper expectations. hahaha! 

Overall, we enjoyed our trip eventhough a li'l bit disappointed that the place did not meet our expectations; but as I keep on saying to my friends that it's not about the place but the people you are making memories with, to make it more amazing. Moral of this travel; we should not expect too much and we should not rely on what we just see and read online. Photo editing plays a deceiving role nowadays. For us bloggers, we should be true in every blog that we post. Readers depend on the information and photos we are providing. I am too sometimes is guilty of this crime (good thing, I am not that good in photo editing. hahaha!).

Miss Blue the Thrifty Wanderer is leaving this quote from Ryan Reynolds.

"When you have expectations, you are setting yourself up for disappointment."
