Untitled[edit]

I don't like these arbitrary "Lists of things in Cebu City" that we have scattered all over the article. Lists of hotels, malls, department stores, consulates, colleges, universities... it's unencyclopedic. An encyclopedia article is more than just a bunch of lists of things that exist. I'm going to remove most of these lists and try to convert them to prose. Coffee 02:38, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Additions[edit]

I have added more articles and pictures for Culture, History, and Cebu City Government.

I have also trimmed down Economy, Infrastructure, etc..

Oldest city in the Philippines[edit]

Cebu City is the oldest City in the Philippines.

Oldest city?[edit]

I think not, oldest City established by the Spaniards, yes.. Maynilad Confederancy was already a native fortified (walled) group of "Barangays" (modern day districts) that can be called a City as a whole. Employing advanced metalworking (because of trade with China and India), cannon-making (Lantaka) and ship-building (Balangay Caracoas). There are also city-states with heavy Chinese influence such as Lubao, Betis (Pampanga) and Mandaragupan (Indianized Dagupan). There are also from Indianized kingdoms of Agusan, Islamic City of Jolo, Jambangan (Zamboanga). --112.200.213.84 (talk) 08:38, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

Absolutely right on, but in the absence of Historical records before the Spaniards came and raped the land, you can only agree to the standards that was imposed by the Spaniards on what constitutes a city and what is not. Junji (talk) 02:09, 31 August 2010 (UTC)


But did they really declared Cebu as a city? Or was it just a settlement. A town? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Magsungai (talkcontribs) 17:32, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Barangays of Cebu City.[edit]

I am Bob Cabarrubias, incumbent city councilor of cebu city, a Former Barangay Captain of Basak-Pardo for 18 years. President of CVISNET and VP For the Barangay.Net Alliance.

  1. Deleted the Guadalupe at the column of North District since it belongs to the South District. Port Area is also deleted on the same column since the barangay does not exist. ON the column Brgy. South District, Banawa is also deleted since it does not exist in the south district. However, Banawa is already a barangay as approved by the house of representatives recently this year. One barangay of the south is not written on the column that is Buhisan
  2. I made a link of the brgys since they have thier respective website like Basak-Pardo, Buhisan, Tisa, Banilad, Hipodromo, and Capitol site. I believe that the viewers of this wikepedia are deserve for the detailed information of the barangay. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bobcab (talkcontribs) 14:55, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

History[edit]

I am shocked at what I have read, about Lapu-Lapu being a Muslim, in fact most Muslims would love to have him on their side. I would have agreed to this but the facts are facts, get it straight first if you can read here [1]. If Lapu-Lapu were a Muslim then the invaders would have placed a stone as the marker for the spot when Magellan burned down the village as a symbol for the hardness of their hears, to borrow from that page "...a pillar of stone would have been raised to mark the hardness of their hearts..."

However Lapu-Lapu could have been a Manobo, an animist but not a Muslim, even the Manobos claim that he was one of their own, so the fact that he Lapu-Lapu was a Muslim is still a question.

I am challenging this article's reference to Lapu-Lapu as a Muslim, and I will be making changes to it in a few days, if I do not hear of an answer from this challenge.


After reading a few of the discussion here it is already evident that his religion is still in question, and has only turned into a religious propaganda, thus I have removed the reference to Datu Lapu-lapu as a Muslim king

Proper English?[edit]

What is "Cebu also holds the second largest international flights in the Philippines" supposed to mean? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 212.200.65.118 (talk) 14:00, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

What does the title "Queen City of the South" mean? Who gives this title? It probably seems better to say that the title was assumed by it inhabitants, because of the city's economic boom. However, is economic status alone enough to assume such a title? Or, is the title rather bestowed by a competent higher authority?

To which jurisdiction does the word "South" refer to? If it refers to a jurisdiction, then the competent authority of jurisdiction should be the one to confer such title.--TLS MMM (talk) 09:12, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Sub Article Economy[edit]

L.S. ,

The sub-article Economy contains the following short paragraph QUOTE Cebu has also ranked eighth among the Top 10 Asian Cities of the Future in a list compiled by the Foreign Direct Investment (FDi) magazine of the Financial Times group.[9] In 2010, Cebu has also been included in the ranking of Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC) of cities in the world with "Sufficiency" presence.[10] UNQUOTE .

Remarks : 01. The links don't work but reroutes to a Brazilian server that can't find the webpages . 02. The Foreign Direct Investment ( FDI ) Lists that I've checked since 2000 only mentions Cebu once . In a 2009 - 2010 sub-shortlist ( ergo NOT the main overall cities ranking list ) for Cost Effectiveness , behind Davao City And Manila City . Cebu ( City ? ) was ranked 6th in this sub-shortlist , one of 7 shortlists that together with other data ( predominantly FDI data ) form the overall ranking of the Top 10 . Also one could question as to whether or not the authors really do mean Cebu City or Metro Cebu or Cebu Province ( this Wikipedia Article is about Cebu City specifically remember ) ? 03. I couldn't find an 8th place for Cebu ( City ) mentioned anywhere and to reflect these facts , this 1st sentence should be deleted . 04. Likewise , Cebu City is only mentioned once in a list compiled by the GaWC (= Geography Department at Loughborough University that focuses upon research into the external relations of world cities ) , namely the classification list of 2010 . However mentioning this fact , which no other city profile does ( and shouldn't ) , serves no purpose . Cebu is not a world city , regardless of what one chooses to believe in the media hype . Also , Cebu hadn't made this lowest of presence categories before and could very well not make this list next time in 2014 . NB ! There are 12 classification lists and Cebu City got placed on the lowest list ( list 12 in 2010 ) just the once , since 2000 . Why oh why would anyone think that this should be advertised , it really doesn't serve any purpose . Remember too , that no other city from this research advertises their rankings , if one would call it that .

Ergo , I've removed the text , not to offend anyone but simply to reflect the facts as they're presented , not to hype it up ok ?

Cebu has also ranked eighth among the Top 10 Asian Cities of the Future in a list compiled by the Foreign Direct Investment (FDi) magazine of the Financial Times group.[2] In 2010, Cebu has also been included in the ranking of Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC) of cities in the world with "Sufficiency" presence.[3]
