My Humble Pride

With all the billion possibility of being born elsewhere, it is here in Cebu He find me pride.

Cebu, the Queen City of the South. I don’t know why they call it that some say, it is because of our so many beautiful beaches. Yeah, we have plenty of those since Cebu is a long island. Cebu is the first (and oldest) city in the Philippines. Cebuanos are very talented, intelligent and flexible. Christianity in the Phils. first started also in here. Cebuanos are the most difficult audience to please (in the Phils.). Cebuanos are welcoming. These are just the things amongst the reason why I love being a Cebuano. And to add a little more, we find it so blessed by the Divine Grace. Cebu is the home of Sto. Niño, the miracle boy Jesus.

Mindanao, the part below Cebu, was the home base of a terrorist organization. And gun wars is something you’ll get used to somehow if you live there. And Luzon, the part above Visayas, is the weather basket of the country. They’re the first one to get hit by heavy storms. Meanwhile, Visayas, where Cebu is located, is well very blessed enough with good weather, booming industry and good citizens.

Moving on, what I’m looking forward to is the new SM Seaside City. It’s not the biggest SM though in the whole Philippines but it’s their vision that excites me.

SM Seaside City Cebu will be a 4-level, circular-shaped, world-class retail mall with multiple anchors, including a two-storey SM Department Store and SM Hypermart, a 5-theater Cineplex and IMAX Theatre, an 18-lane SM Bowling and Amusement Center, and a food court flanking an ice skating rink. In addition, the mall will have over 800 food and retail shops, including international brands. Nah, it’ll probably be just another mall. hehehe But I love the idea though.

Looks promising right? 🙂
