Watch the video below:

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.

Wheelchair-accessible Taxi for Cebu?

A “wheelchair-accessible taxi” would be very helpful for people with disability here in our city.

In Australia, their government offers free permits to taxi owners who have a wheelchair-friendly taxi. We could also imitate that scheme, to encourage business owners to have this type of taxi.

SM City area is Flooded today

If you love your car, then it is best to avoid the SM City Cebu area in Mandaue City today.

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.

Buenaventura Rodriguez

B. Rodriguez Cebu City

So the street B. Rodriguez was named after Buenaventura Rodriguez?

According to Cebuano Studies Center:

Buenaventura Rodriguez, a native of Cebu, was a renowned playwright, journalist, stage actor and a distinguished politician.

He was one of the more recognized dramatists in the Sugbuhanon dialect. He wrote the play, El Muñeco Roto which was performed by the Compañia de Zarzuela Española in 1915. A noted writer and politician from Cebu, Manuel Briones, believed that another play by Rodriguez entitled El Mal se Aprende was a spiritual event.

In 1937, Buenaventura Rodriguez was elected as governer of Cebu.

In 1940, his play La Adjusta Leja de la Vaguada was made into movie.

He was also recipient of the Premio Zobel in 1924 for his novel La Pugna.

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.

Jeepneys and taxis park here, maybe because it’s not so crowded, and the presence of side-walk vendors.

This residence was probably built during the 1970s.

Stop Flyover

I really have no idea about the negative effects of having flyovers until I watched this video by Budoy of Jr. Kilat.

No to flyovers in Cebu City!
