    Default OLD CEBU -- Time was when...


    Giddyyap ya old Cebu folks circa 70's and 80's, you go to a mall and see all these strangers and tourists, then you'll realize things arent just the same anymore in Cebu anymore...Time was when:

    -there was just colon for shopping, if not Nace then Infini or that old botique where Pierre Angeli is now
    -sunday beach meant Chua's or 7-up in Talisay, after buying lechon at Yarrow
    -going to Mactan meant riding a ferry, compania maritima
    -tartanillas were in the streets
    -weekend dancing parties at someone's house
    -resortless marigondon
    -beehive, still there
    -dairy queen in Mango
    -bar-b-snack
    -bukid, bai disco
    -ride a car and your'e bound to be waving or honking to many of your friends in the other cars
    -yeh yeh vonel, revive, caronia, hour after hour, the tv ads of yore!

    layo ra na sakong time..

    Time when cebu was not yet a city.. i remember me and my family eating without a table. we just hunting baboy in colon street.. there were no tartanilya yet. we use our carabao as a means of transportation. we have no clothes yet and its merely uncivilized.. i guess it was about 1500 B.C.
