Cebu Updates 5

Thanks to good governance, excellent track record in peace and order, and the Cebuanos all over the world who continue to take pride in this lovely little island that we call home, Cebu is experiencing what most people refer to as CEBOOM Part 2. We are very lucky because not all parts of the archipelago get to experience this. So, let’s all continue working hard to help keep our beloved Cebu moving towards the ‘right’ direction.

To give you a little idea of the ‘changes,’ here are some photos that I took for the month of September.

  3. Wow, looking good! Masa-ag na gyud ko ani. Ley ikaw unya tourist guide ha kong maka uli lo puhon? So many new buildings and roads! Way to go Cebu!!!

  4. The construction workers hanging off their “Death Rigs” always amaze and antagonize me. As a retired construction worker here in the US I can say those homemade rebar “stages” would NEVER be allowed here. I wonder how often there are accidents, falls or deaths from making workers use these unsafe practices?

  5. Utility poles now standing in the middle of Escario road must be removed fast!!Don’t like to hear it becoming a death road what with the reckless drivers we have in cebu

  6. boomimg gyud kaayo ang cebu not to mention cleaner na sad, gikan lang mi dinha last month, mobalik gyud dayon mi puhon

  7. It’s just truly amazing. Gaisano Toledo. Wow! Looks so nice.
