Cordova: One Year and Three Months Later


Over the weekend, I drove all the way to Cordova to revisit a lovely little barangay called Bang-Bang. If you can remember, Bang-Bang was one of the worst-hit areas when a huge oil-spill plagued the Cebu Strait and the Mactan Channel. (See photos of the spill here) The spill was caused by the collision of passenger ship MV Thomas Aquinas and cargo vessel Sulpicio Express Siete approximately 1 kilometer off the coast of Talisay. The passenger ship (which was carrying 120,000 liters of bunker fuel) sank and left at least 55 people dead and around 65 missing.

A Different Kind of Park


Last November 16, the city of Lapu-Lapu officially opened the ‘first publicly funded skate park in the country.’ I saw the photos posted by the official FB page of the Lapu-Lapu LGU, and I couldn’t help but feel excited for all the skating enthusiasts in Cebu. Finally, they have a place that’s far from moving traffic where they can train and master the sport.

Anyways, of course, I had to check out the new park. I wanted to know if the park really looks awesome in person.

The Clearing of Mahiga


Several houses along the Mahiga Creek (Cebu-Mandaue border) were demolished recently as part of the city government’s REDZ (Reduce Eliminate Danger Zone) RIVER Project. I’m not sure how many individuals and families were affected but based on the photos, I can say that the number (of families) could be more than a hundred. That means at least a thousand individuals.
