Gabii Sa Kabilin 2011

First of all, I would like to apologize for this very late post. I had to travel to Negros for a very important reason. Anyway, here is my little coverage of the very successful Gabii Sa Kabilin 2011.  I would like to congratulate the organizers of this event. Despite the torrential rain, I think it […]

The New Plaza

After around five years, Cebuanos can once again enjoy their beloved Plaza Independencia. The plaza was closed in 2006 due to the construction of the South Road Properties Tunnel (which runs directly underneath the plaza). When the tunnel was completed, the restoration, conservation, and beautification of the plaza followed. And finally, last May 8, 2011, […]

Southern Bend

So the last town that we visited was the Heritage Town of Boljoon. Boljoon is one of the oldest towns in Cebu. It is a 5th class municipality with 11 baranggays. Its main industries are farming and fishing. Boljoon’s coastal plains, cliffs, mountain ranges, and hills are all in very close proximity to the Bohol Strait. […]

Dalaguete, Finally!

Two weekends ago, I was finally able to see the town church of Dalaguete. True, it wasn’t my first time in Dalaguete. However, it was the first time that I saw the awesome structure with my own eyes. One time, I tried to ‘discover’ where the church was and I ended up taking pictures of […]

Trailing Through Old Carcar

I’ve seen the old photographs and I’ve heard the stories. But I’ve never seen them with my own eyes. I’m talking about the old railways of Cebu. Did Cebu really have railways and trains in the past? The answer is definitely ‘yes.’ But human as I am, I wanted some proof! Hehehe. Luckily, Arnold and […]

Gorgeous Naga

So, after a short stop in the city of Talisay (we took a couple of shots of the old church and the World War 2 landing monument), Arnold and I were back on the road. Our next stop was the gorgeous City of Naga. We parked the car in front of the gym and headed […]

Southern Exposure

Last June 14 (holiday), my friend Arnold of Cebu Heritage asked if I would be interested to tour the southern churches of Cebu. He said that he would be driving his car so I didn’t have to worry about anything. Well, that was just four days since payday so I really didn’t worry much about […]

Night of Heritage 2010

  I’m glad that the The Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. and the Visayan Association of Museums and Galleries, Inc. have decided to make Gabii sa Kabilin (Night of Heritage) a yearly event. On its fourth year (I think), more museums have decided to participate. In 2008, guests were able to enjoy the exhibits and presentations […]

Colon Street

Colon Street was built by the conquering kastilas lead by Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Considered the oldest street in the entire country, Colon Street was built in 1565 – more than 40 years after Magellan’s defeat in Mactan. Colon Street is a very important part of Cebuano life, culture, and history. It is also an important force which pushed […]

Clean And Green Sibonga

  Like the Carmen plaza, the town plaza of Sibonga is really nice. It’s perfect for afternoon walks and long after-supper chit-chats. And the park is just a couple of meters away from the really nice town church. And right beside that, is a line of centuries-old houses. And yeah, I would have to add that the entire […]
