Banawa Is Sizzling!

After accommodating one of the biggest call centers in Cebu (Convergys,) Banawa welcomed a new posh site for the up-there crowd. Clearly, Banawa is the new sizzling hot spot in Cebu City. The once sleepy stretch of M. Velez and Duterte Streets in Banawa is now oozing with life.

Standing at the heart of the Arcenas Estate, Rustan’s Supermarket and a few high-end shops opened their branches to accommodate the needs primarily of the growing Convergys population and the residents of Banawa and Guadalupe.

The Jollibee Arcenas Estate is the second Jollibee in Barangay Guadalupe.

The development is also home to other brands.

On the other side is the Red Moon Chinese Cuisine & Delicacies.


There is also a branch of Chains and Starbucks Coffee.

Wala’y dato ug wala’y pobre, as we always say here “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS KID!” Hope ma realize na sa tanang Pilipino nga dili ta ma-inferior sa mga dato, pareho ra na sila nato bahug tai! hahahahhaa.
