Tsunami Panic in Cebu City

An unusual sight or event happened in my beloved Cebu last February 7. An earthquake occurred at 11:45 in the morning and at 8:30 in the evening. Office workers were in panic and went out of their offices. A good excuse for not working, haha. I was out with my friends, we were about to…

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. The street sign of Don Gil Garcia Street.…

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. The less vehicles, the…

San Jose Bakeshop

San Jose Bakeshop should be in my top three personal bakeshop list. I like their tasty bread. After a tiring photowalk around Guadalupe, I stopped by for a quick snack, and was blessed San Jose Bakeshop was just nearby. San Jose Bakeshop facade in Guadalupe, near Provincial Capitol. The bread display. My favourite bread, brown and a…

Gaisano South on Fire

Video of Gaisano Capital South caught on fire. The fire started around 1am, and probably last about 24 hours, but 18 hours according to the news. Unknown to most Cebuanos, Gaisano South is about 8 storeys in height. So this probably made it difficult for firefighters to resolve. I used work here in year 2000.

Oh Cebu Pagkatahum Mo Kaniadto

Feel nostalgic with this Cebuano melancholic song while watching the old photos about Cebu City. The title of this post is based on the video posted by the original user, myaspa. I’m not sure if the title of this song “Oh Cebu Pagkatahum Mo Kaniadto”, probably it’s just the video. Here is the lyrics of…
