Nice Mural Painting at Banilad

I always see this mural painting everytime I pass by this area in Banilad, near Metrobank. It’s time to take a photo of it.

Villalon Drive, Capitol Site

I went to a friend’s house located in Capitol Site to borrow a camera lens.

Going to Capitol Site, one has to take OPRRA bound jeepney, or simply when you see a number 15 , that’s going to OPRRA.

Rizal Street, Ibabao, Mandaue City

This is a two year old video of Rizal Street, in Ibabao, Mandaue City. It takes forever uploading videos in Youtube that’s I seldom post videos. There are still a lot of videos in my drive. I need more patience hehe.

This video was shot early in the morning.

Rizal street is near Jollibee, Mandaue City Hall and the church.

Don Gil Garcia St. Guadalupe

Don Gil Garcia is located just beside and back of Provincial Cebu Capitol building.

I was looking for any information about Don Gil Garcia on the internet, but there is none. I think I should buy a book that solely talks about Cebu City and its people.

No to Flyovers in Cebu City!

I support the No to Flyovers in Cebu City.

It would not actually solve the traffic problem, it will make it worse.

The more we put flyovers, the number of vehicles will increase, pollutions does too, it will further add traffic congestion.

Credits to Archt. Gerard Ocampo for the good shots.

Cebu City flyovers
The less vehicles, the more breathable Cebu is.

Cebu City Street Art Part 2

This is the second installment of my Cebu City Street Art series.

The Part 1 was mostly, or should I say entirely shot at the Queen City Gardens cemetery.

This set was shot in Cebu South Road, just at the entrance of F. Llamas St., Mambaling, in front of McDonalds.

I personally like the quality of these graffiti than the ones at Queen City Gardens (Part 1).

Cebu City Street Art Part 1

These street mural can be seen along Queen City Memorial Garden, located in Cebu Reclamation Area, just close to Gaisano White Gold and SM Supermarket.

I started shooting at the SM side.

We used to have our own mural art here in 1997, we painted it at the old White Gold/Queensland side. It was part of a mural art contest. We did not win, but we got a consolation prize of P700, I think.
