Kung mag-sarili ang Cebu – talbog ang Pinas! (Abante 02.10)

Kahit sinong taga-Luzon ay mamatay ng inggit sa tuluy-tuloy na asenso ng Cebu.

Bawat flight ng eroplano – umaapaw sa turista at investors.

Kaya ang mga Cebuano – halos lahat may trabaho.

Mga tamad lang ata ang nagugutom.

(Habang tayo’y nagle-lechon pag may piyesta lamang, ang mga Cebuano ay inaaraw-araw ang putahe – putaheng sila lang ata ang marunong magpalabas ng sarap.)

Gov. Gwen Garcia

Inuulit-ulit ng lahat na makausap namin – mula kay Gov. Gwen Garcia hanggang sa mga waitress ng kay raming nagsusulputang mga restawran – ang sikreto sa pag-asenso: hindi mayaman ang lupain ng Cebu para sa agrikultura kaya napipilitan ang mga taga-rito na gamitin ang kanilang likas na talino para gumanda ang buhay. Mabuti rin na ang mga pinuno ng Cebu ay pro-business – pinapadali ang pagtayo at pagpalago ng negosyo.

Cebuanos' constant refrain, "there's no other place that we'd rather be"

Nakilala namin ang Cebuanong si Kenneth Cobonpue – furniture designer na kilala sa buong mundo. Sobrang galing… pati mga sikat tulad ni Brad Pitt ay suki niya.

Andyan rin si Jay Aldeguer – ang Cebuanong nagbigay sa mundo ng makulay at kakaibang T-shirts na may tatak Island Souvenirs. Ngayo’y abala na rin sa ibang larangan ng turismo – island banca cruises, isang boutique hotel na laging fully booked at – malapit na – mga taksi na buhos alaga sa mga pasaherong turista. (Sec. Mon Jimenez, tourism is more fun sa Cebu!)

Napasyalan namin ang planta ng Pro-Products ang gumagawa ng dried mangoes na ngayo’y kinalolokohan sa 45 na bansa sa mundo. Nagbibigay  ng hanapbuhay sa higit sa 6,000 na mga kababayan natin.

At nabanggit ko na rin ba na ang Cebu ang binansaggang World’s No. 1 Emerging City for BPO?

Talaga namang nauulanan ng maraming biyaya ang Cebu – sana’y maambunan din ang buong Pilipinas.

Malapit na malapit na – diumano – bilhin ng SM group ang Greenhills shopping center sa halagang $1-B. Sa dami ng pera ng pamilyang Sy, sana’y tigilan na nila ang pag tanggal ng mga pine tree para lamang tayuan ng parking lot ng SM Baguio.

Hula who? May isang mambabatas na nagbibigay ng matinding sakit ng ulo sa isang progresibong lalawigan sa Pinas. Pasaway at binabara ang maraming magagandang proyekto na magbibigay ng trabaho at opportunidad. At mas grabe pa raw tumalak kay Annabelle Rama.

Huling hirit. Astig ang mga pick-up lines na may tatak Sen. Miriam Santiago.

  7. Ralyn T. Sevilla - Cebu Wedding Planner and Coordinator Says:

    Cebu is also known for Best Wedding Destination, we boast of World Class Hotels, Resorts and beaches… 🙂 Proud to be Cebuana…

    Really now? I am proud of Cebu but there are still so many issues that need to be resolved, like for example the traffic is getting worst and building all those unnecessary flyovers are definitely not helping, the garbage issue is getting worst which has resulted to the flooding of the streets during rainy season, and most importantly crime is running rampant in the city and the safety of all Cebuanos and tourists alike are being compromised. How do you expect the investors to keep on coming to Cebu if these issues are not addressed? Just by masking the problems with Cebuano hospitality? Like how politicians are pretending to care for the people by building flyovers? Sooner or later the stink will come out! It’s time to wake up people and do something about the city WE ALL LOVE…..CEBU…. I LOVE CEBU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE A CEBUANO BY HEART…IT PAINS ME TO SEE MY LOVELY CITY BEING DESTROYED AND MOLESTED BY THE VERY PEOPLE THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT IT! STOP THE CORRUPTION AND TAKE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!
