Speaking Cebuano

how to speak Cebuano? a little disclaimer.

Hi, my name is Chris and i've been living in Cebu for God knows how long. I'm not claiming to be a professor or a teacher of Cebuano, and i'm not saying that i'm an expert either. Cebuano, as most will know is a dialect in the Philippines, and unlike Tagalog/Filipino, there is no formal training or education of the language. Usually, the dialect is taken up at birth and learned from then on. I know there will be a lot of issues that will spring up especially on grammar and spelling, however I am very much willing to change whatever mistake I've made. Anyways, to those who want to learn the language/dialect don't hesitate to comment the articles or message me here at guidetocebu@yahoo.com Have fun learning the language! 

Update 2011: I've been busy with other things lately, and especially my new website (Your Top 10 Everything) however, i'll promise to update more and make it more "reader-friendly". I've noticed there's a few people interested in learning the language, and its pretty hard to make lessons if no one reads them. So i hope if you do get some learnings from my lessons, comment down below or like my facebook page! :)

Jaguar is Close

Written by Chris

jaguar ktv

For all tourists, travelers, and adventurers please take notice that , the popular Jaguar KTV club here in CEBU is i guess temporarliy close. This after a police raid found out that there were minors dancing and stripping topless in the club.  

Im not going to go all detail with the news, but for those who are interested in reading it further, you can read it on the online newspaper Sunstar.  

One thing funny with this raid is that, Jaguar has been in Cebu for at least a couple of years already, and is known all over the island as a type of strip club.   Why only now does the City Government act on it?

                            "After receiving reports of cybersex dens operating in Cebu City, Mayor Michael Rama said he will order the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) to create a task force that will run after illegal establishments."- Sunstar

I'm not taking sides here on whether the bar should continue to operate or not, but i hope the government is more consistent on their policies and "laws". What i'm trying to say is that if ever they do decide to get all these "illegal" establishments and close them

down, they should close every single one of them. If not, then they should let all of them operate peacefully. 

Anyways, for all those sad folks out there, there are always other alternatives that you can go to! check out guidetocebu.com's club directory here.

Rawr to you all!

Written by Chris

5000 unique visitors!  13000 page views!

bantayan island cebu

*bantayan island

 

Wow! after 8 months since this website has started, we have reached a milestone of receiving our 5000th visitor. 

 This may not sound much to some people, but for me, this is something that will want to make me pop up a cork of a champagne just to give a toast to myself(but since i dont have any, a pat at my back will do).

It was not an easy road in coming up with this website, and it was pretty tough. Aside from the technical challenges in coming up with the website, the information and facts gathering about Cebu, and financial constraints with hosting, I was pretty much a one man team here at start.

 However, i have to thank  Nef, Mag, Robert, Ken, Jona, the photo contributors and the site visitors- of course, for their support and inputs in coming up with this website.

 

Aside from this! our google ranks has never been this higher! yehey!

Thank you guys for your support and interest in the website and of course in CEBU! The island that we all love!

Rawr!
