Get Intimate with the Queen City Of the South

Highs and Lows


After months of waiting, it was finally time to go on another solo road trip. The last solo road trip I had was probably more than a year ago. See, the old bike that I was using was deteriorating fast (it was more than 8 years old) and I didn’t want to have to deal with engine troubles while on the road. That was primarily the main reason why I stopped leaving the city for a while. But now that I have Dodong Gotham, things are going to be a lot better.

For this trip, I decided to go to Badian. I wanted to take photos of the changes in Kawasan (if you can remember, Gov. Gwen Garcia ordered the demolition of concrete structures near the first drop of Kawasan) and see what other spots in Badian I could feature. I was pretty excited to go back.

I left the city at around 8 am. The weather was fine, traffic was smooth, and I had enough gas money. A perfect day for a road trip, indeed!

8 Years!!!


Hello, friends. I would just like to let you all know that, yeah, My Cebu Photo Blog turned 8 this year. I couldn’t believe I’m still blogging eight years later (considering that I get tired of things very easily. Haha.) But, yeah, My Cebu Photo Blog is now eight years old. I think in blogging years, MCPB is already considered a senior. Haha.

Cebu Updates 15


Hello, all! Here’s another compilation of what’s new and what’s happening in Cebu. Cebu is very busy these days. And traffic is growing more and more horrible by the minute. I really hope that the BRT project will soon move forward because, honestly, even though I’m all for progress and development, I kinda miss the vibe of good old Cebu. You know, back when things were slow and people actually had to time to just sit in the shade and take their time. Now, everything is so hurried and impersonal.

So anyway, for this update, I included a few clips of individual updates and put them all together in one video. Hope you like it.

I am so thankful that the M. Velez Street (Capitol) widening project is now finally moving forward. About time!

Ever-Changing Simala


A couple of weeks ago, after finally receiving my motorbike’s temporary permit, I was finally able to go on a quick out-of-town trip. My destination was the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist in Lindogon Hills in Sibonga. The shrine is most popularly known as Simala. Years ago, the shrine was small and simple. Over the years, however, drastic changes have been made to ‘improve’ the whole complex. Let’s take a look at how the complex looks like now. Just to see how things have changed, please refer to these previous Simala posts: Simala in 2007, Simala in 2009, Simala in 2010.
