Unique People during the Sinulog 2016

I’m not really interested in taking photos of the street dancers. Kung sa Cebuano pa, gas-gas na hehe.

What I did was take photos of unique and unusual people, well at least in my opinion. These people may not be unique for you. I only took a few since I also have other plans that day. But I hope to add more in the next Sinulog.

Sotero Cabahug

Sotero Cabahug Cebu

I got this photo of Sotero Cabahug from a painting hanged on the wall of Cebu Capitol Building in Osmena Boulevard.

Son of a farmer, he was born on April 22, 1891 in Mandaue City, Cebu.

For his collegiate education he went to the then Colegio Seminario de San Carlos in Cebu City and San Juan de Letran College and University of Santo Tomas in Manila.

Sotero Cabahug served as Cebu Governor from 1934 to 1937. He also held a number of positions in Mandaue City, Cebu and nationally. In Cebu he was a Deputy Provincial Fiscal (1918–1919), Municipal Councilor (1920–1925), Acting Municipal President (1928–1931), Representative, 2nd District of Cebu (1931–1934).

He became National Defense Secretary (1954- 1956) under the regime of Carlos P. Garcia.
