With the flowers now in full bloom, more local and foreign tourists are traveling to the mountain barangay of Sirao in Cebu City to take “selfie” with celosia flowers, locally known as the burlas, which are abundant in Sirao Flower Garden, otherwise known as the “Little Amsterdam of Cebu,” which is owned managed by Maria Elena Sy Chua.
The garden is becoming more attractive and visitors are greeted with vines that climb up the metal arcs just above the pathway leading to the heart of the garden featuring some wooden benches and statues of women installed among the flowers.
The hillside windmill, a water fountain and a little wooden house are an added offerings for tourists who want to capture a perfect scenery for their “selfie.”
But Oops! Before you will take your best selfie. Look what I found inside aside from the blooming celosia flowers.
- You can never find a freshly brewed coffee to any coffee shops that will be serve like this.

Good thing about this 2nd visit of mine is that. I was given a chance to asked the same question to some of the tourist there.
How does it feel to be here in Sirao?
“The place is relaxing. This place really gives me a peace of mind. I was able to quickly escape in a crowded place”. – Tina, 39 -Employee Toyota Philippines
” Best place in Cebu to Visit. I was amazed when I saw the glooming flowers– Hazel,26 from Bicol
I was also given an opportunity to spoke with the owner ” The reason why I set up a place like this. Because I want to inspire people. I want to make them feel how i felt when I was abroad. This is not actually a business but it is my Advocate,”Mrs. Chua said.
She also added ” I am so happy seeing those people taking selfies, doing jump shots while taking photos (with action:)). It makes me glad seeing those people wearing big smiles in their faces while here in the Garden.”
I am so in loved with this place. That is why I keep on coming back. Will be there on the 30th to cover The Trick or Treat that will be happen inside the Garden.

P.S. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE FIRST FLOWER GARDEN WHERE YOU CAN SEE UMBRELLAS AS PART OF THEIR DECORATION IS NOT THE ORIGINAL SIRAO FLOWER FARM GARDEN. THEY JUST COPIED THE CONCEPT OF THE ORIGINAL SIRAO GARDEN WHICH IS LOCATED AFTER THE FIRST GARDEN. THAT IS WHY THE OWNER PUTS THE NAME ON THE GARDEN “LITTLE AMSTERDAM”. BJ FARM ARE THE NAMES OF THE FARMERS.
SO IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO VISIT THE GARDEN AND WILL TAKE HABAL-HABAL. PLEASE DO TELL THE DRIVER TO BRING YOU TO THE ORIGINAL SIRAO GARDEN.
