If you’re a loyal Vispop fan since the first season, you should definitely attend this event! This is an avenue for you to listen to the Vispop songs in Spotify and SoundCloud live! Isn’t it great to listen to “Duyog”, “Labyu Langga”, “Balay ni Mayang”, “Bok Love”, and “Buwag Balik”? Of course, there are more Vispop songs that will be played for the Cebuano audience.

2. Missing Filemon will be there to serenade us.

Cebu’s premiere Bisrock band will be performing during the Vispop Music Festival. Insoy NiƱal, the band’s vocalist, is popular in social media since he’s behind Sinugbang Sugbo and he writes interesting and thought-provoking commentaries in Sunstar Cebu. Will they play my favorite “Kawanangan?” Let’s find out.

3. Aggressive Audio and Junior Kilat will perform, too!

Aside from Missing Filemon and the Vispop artists, there are more Cebuano music artists like Aggressive Audio and Junior Kilat (Budoy) who will be performing live!

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.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

#BalakPaMore: Cebuano Poetry in Random Corners of Cebu

Do you know where’s the Capital City of Cebuano Poetry? With no doubt in mind, it’s Cebu. Unofficially, of course.
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?

This artwork of Marjorie Evasco is sitting on an abandoned tired somewhere in Lahug. Seeing this will prove that poetry is indeed becoming part of our society!
