Have you been to Cebu City? The Queen City of the South is the one of the most popular cities in the Philippines along Manila and Boracay.
If you are a Cebuano, you have probably realized that many streets in Cebu are named after famous people in history. I decided to gather 10 common streets in Cebu and create a list of meaningful information about these streets.

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.

#BalakPaMore: Cebuano Poetry in Random Corners of Cebu

For the past few weeks, Cebu City has been filled with Cebuano poems locally called as balak being posted in random corners like the street walls, electric posts, skywalk, and other public places!
Here are some places that Cebuano poems were posted:

1. Water Drum

This poem of Melquiadito Allego, BATHALAD (a Cebuano literary community) founder, is posted in of one of the most obscure places in Cebu City. Do you find this romantic in any sense?
