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 flyovers
Wow, 600 million just for two flyovers.

Cebu City flyovers
Bike lanes and mass transit is a good idea.

Cebu City flyovers
Flyovers is more negative and positive.

Cebu City flyovers
Please join the call and support to fight against building new flyovers.

Cebu City flyovers
Bus Rapid Transit for Cebu, yeah baby. Diri na lang na ang 600 million.

Cebu City flyovers
Additional good alternative projects for the benefit of Cebu and Cebuanos.

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.

You can view the iconic Happy Mart.

P. Gullas Street

My regret is I did not eat, I just photo walked. Well, anyway, I did eat here years ago, probably once or twice.

It would not hurt if I would eat here again. Just don’t drink the water being served here, hehe..

I have no idea who P. Gullas was. But I knew, Eddie Gullas is owner of University of the Visayas and politician, not sure if they’re related. I could not find any information on the web.

Started this photo walk at Gorordo Avenue – Golden Peak hotel area.

I’ve searched for facts about how this road got its name from, but I could not find one online.
