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! :)

Ling-am Massage

Written by Chris

Ling-am Massage

One of the biggest debates in Cebu this year, Lingam massages as according to this website 

"is loosely translated as "Wand of Light." In Tantra or Sacred Sexuality, the Lingam is respectfully viewed and honored, as a "Wand of Light" that channels creative energy and pleasure"

In other words, the objective of the massage is not to achieve the peak of orgasm but just barely before it. These are massages wherein the masseuse's job is to massage the testicles of the man-including the area which is called the Sacred Spot( prostate). Said to have therapeutic benefits for men with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and stressful lives, Lingam offers another "venue" in which men can release their stress, and anxiety in a manner that is not supposedly to be "sexual" (though this is still left for debate as some might argue that its an artistic version of a handjob). Though majority of the population might think that Lingam is a cover for prostitution, many spa owners argue that this is not the case and that their masseuse are trained not to engage in such. However, there has been a big crackdown on the illegitimate lingam spas especially in areas such as Mactan and Mandaue. So, if ever you decide to try this out, Cebu is probably the only place where it is still "safe" to do.  

Massage areas for Lingam is located normally on the inner parts of the roads, so you won't get to see them anywhere on the Highways or national roads(go figure). Most taxi's would know these areas.

Added Note: some parlors' masseuses offer "extra service"-frankly speaking a BJ and something all the way with extra payment. 1k pesos for a B and 1.5k for an S.

Duke Spa

A little trickier to find, Duke Spa operates differently like their more known counterparts. They charged around 1700 pesos for 4 types of massages- Shiatsu, Korean, Thai, and Swedish. All of these massages

are fit into one package. After you choose a girl at Duke Spa, they bring you to a nearby motel where they do the massage. They don't illicit sexual action- as so they say, but whatever happens inside that motel after the "legal" massage is really up to the masahista and the client.  If you're wondering, they give you a happy service after all those four massages. 

Thanks to the Robert for sharing this information with us. 

Duke Spa is located at Hernan Cortes near Mandaue Foam and on Traders Arcade. You wont miss this arcard because aside from it being the only one there in that street, you'll notice there are a lot of warehouses behind it as well.  Just follow that green arrow.

Hilot

Written by Chris

Hilot (/hee-lot/) is an ancient Filipino art of healing, commonly used today to relax stressed muscles. Manghihilots (Hilot practitioners) as well as arbularyos are usually cheaper alternatives to medical doctors in the Philippines, especially in very deep rural areas. Hilot employ chiropractic manipulation and massage for the diagnosis and treatment of musculoligamentous and musculoskeletal ailments. They also have been known to reset dislocated and sprained joints such as the knee, ankle, fingers and metacarpal bones. Hilot tend to be chiropractors while arbularyos tend to be herbalists. Midwives are also called hilots.

Often times even in the cities, people believe that hilot can heal all sort of ailments and sprains. From back pains, to having a cold, hilot can supposedly ease the pain and bring back the person to better health conditions. A hilot usually takes as short as 5 minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the ailment of the person. Sprains are usually fast and some hilots just twist and turn your sprain and tell you its all normal. Honestly speaking, i'm not really sure if hilot works or not. Personally i tried hilot when i had sprains when i was a kid, however i was not sure if it was because of the hilot that healed my sprain or natural progression of my body's healing. 

 

If you want me to suggest to you some practicioners of this massage. Comment down or email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Spas

Written by Chris

Spas

Cebu's Spa and Massage industry have seen a rapid rise. Aside from having masseuses or masahistas(Cebuano) that are known to be world-class good, its quite cheap to have a massage here compared to when you are in another country. Massage is a big part of Cebuano culture, and is loosely translated as massahe or hilot. If one is tired or even sick, massage would be the first answer. Every neighborhood you go to, there is bound to be a massahista lying around there. A typical massage from a freelance massahistas will cost you around 150-400 pesos depending on their years of experience and your relationship. Most of these masahistas are known only through referrals, so make sure to catch one before you leave. 

However, if you are unfortunate to not know any massahistas during your stay in Cebu, there are always the commercial establishments which are equally as good- though probably more expensive.
