We Have a Booming Cebuano Music Scene

With Vispop and other opportunities being placed for the singers, musicians and bands in Cebu, our mark in the music industry has truly blown throughout the years. Not only does our music pride the dialect, the places, the food and the places, it is also not afraid to be internationally-competitive in its beats and lyrics where other countries have also taken notice because of it. Our music may be for maoy, love, jams, trips or even for laughs and joys but one thing is for certain, it is truly something to watch out for.

Our delicacies are not only dried mangoes or just plain lechon anymore, we have stepped it up. Sm Seaside’s Pitstop use mangoes for their main dishes such as their pizzas having mango. Lechon has a vegetable lechon and boneless lechon now. Taho is now sold in malls now with various sizes. Don’t worry, the street food we love are still found easily on the sidewalks.

Not only that, we've also managed to create special fusion dishes by mixing local ingredients with dishes from all around the world. Here, you'll find Greek, Singaporean, Malaysian, Thai, Mexican and Morroccan dishes with our local twist. Check out restaurants that line most of our malls if you want to try them.

Cebu’s architectural landscapes are now modernized and are now conscious on the environment and modernistic designs. It is now aware of the blend of nature and concrete where IT Park, Cebu Business Park, SRP are few of the areas turning things around. The wires are now underground, WiFi is almost finally free on most areas and it is almost a place where we can finally walk home without caution. Mandani Bay may be the next step into the future of a better Cebu.
