Cebu will most likely be the next city in the Philippines after Manila to be a "world city." I like the pace of the development of the city right now, but I believe it's just the beginning and we will see it grow to be the undisputed metropolitan city in the Philippines after MM. In the 30 years we will start to see iconic projects in Cebu because the market there will be mature at that point.

the cebuano exultor is not being pessimistic but rather realistic. Seriously i share his view about Cebu. And wheel of steel looks like a kid who jumps happily non-stop about every project which is for me, my view as a foreigner, just a mediocre project, nothing to shout about. That's why cebuano exultor pointed seldom a foreigner drop by this thread and leave some comments.

To be a Singapore/Hong Kong in 20 years time, yeah who knows if Cebu can achieve it, but for me i would be very happy for Cebu, as the second biggest city in the Philippines, could have something like those in Penang, Malaysia. These 2 cities share the same characteristics, that's what i see. I hope this will not turn into CvC debate. Just my opinion, i was raised in Penang and see many similarities, but Penang is ahead slightly. With current pace of development we can rival Penang (if their growth is stagnant).

Honestly, I love your country, Malaysia... I really see peace and prosperity in your county and Penang? We'll I can say that it is really a beautiful city supported by a no. of infrastructures. Really Penang and Cebu have in common though Penang is really big and ahead. Penang is the big brother of Cebu....

It's not that i'm against you wheel of steel. No. just my view. I admire your enthusiasm for this country. Seems like nobody in SSC pinas is more ethusiastic about the country except you especially with nortrail-soutrail where you contribute a lot. Pinas is my country too, and thanks for all your updates. Anyway i came to accept that we may have different taste in buildings and design, the cebu building might look normal to me but may be you see it differently. Anyway i hope cebu will continue its growth. Never been to cebu but would like to be there someday.

And FYI Cebu is bigger than Penang in terms of population, so that might put existing infrastructure strain in Cebu. Penang has about 1 million something population on both Penang and Mainland. I see twin cities rather than one big kuya and its kapatid

in the medium to long term, cebu can probably edge out penang mainly because of the bpo sector, much more if the plan to turn the whole island into an economic zone pushes true. but this will not happen if cebu's infrastructure remains stagnant. the narrow roads are a mess, and plans to turn cebu into a wi-fi city is way overdue. also, cebu has a huge sanitation and cleanliness problem, especially outside of the business and i.t. parks. try walking near the fuente area and you'll notice lots of litter strewn around.

@ barukdok

That problem can only be solved if people's attitude towards sanitation and cleanliness is changed to be more Japanese-y or German-ish.

Megaworld's Proposal for a BPO Hub at Mactan Island

Megaworld's proposal looks more resort-ish rather than BPO-office-space-ish.

Portofino Resort is on the other side of Shang Mactan anyway, wala ng space dba?

A newly built formation center of the French congregation located on V. Rama Street, Guadalupe, Cebu City is now open.

Called the St. John Center, the center was completed after 11 months of construction that started on February 2007.

Project Director Fr. Gregory Plus, CSJ, along with the other members of the St. John Community held the inauguration and blessing of the P14 million four-storey building on February 25.

The ceremony was headed by Auxiliary Bishop Julito Cortes and witnessed by around 300 benefactors and friends.

“On behalf of His Eminence Cardinal Vidal, I commend the dedication and efforts of the Community of St. John and those who supported in making this formation center a reality here in Cebu,” said Bishop Cortes in his homily.

The Community of St. John’s Vicar for Asia, Fr. Francisco Frederico Lot, CSJ, emphasized “the formation center is a place where we can touch the heart of the people, instilling in them on how to live in Christ. I encourage everyone to come to the center and discover something essential in life: to love and to pray.”

The center has conference rooms, retreat rooms, a chapel and a library.
It is open to the public.

The center offers formation courses on personhood, love, sexuality, work, art, family and some important issues in the society.

It also offers special formation on Christian teachings based on prayer and the word of God.

A School of Evangelization will also be opened in June to introduce the basic formation on Divine life and contemplative faith.
