Sugbuak

Posted on Sep 19, 2006 under Uncategorized |
Let me reiterate. Almost everyday if not often, I would pass by the Cebu Provincial Building or simply known to us as ‘capitol’ on my way to and from the office. For days now, it has that big banner strung up above tha main door. It read - NO TO SUGBUAK. Below it is a counter, manual not a matrix display or anything for that sort that increments each and every day. Today it has gone up to no less than 200,000. The curiosity in me dwells up. I should know what it is all about, afterall, I’m a Cebuana and should at least care about what’s happening around me. (para mura ug true bah)

The word Sugbuak itself already connotes a meaning. Without having to search further, it’s derived from the word Sugbu (old or bisaya name for Cebu) and Buak which meant to break or separate. Obviously, it’s all about breaking Cebu! Ha? What?!?

Yes, there’s an going move to divide Cebu into major provinces. They say Cebu will no longer be just Cebu. There will come Cebu del Sur, Cebu del Norte, etc. Let’s just forebear technicalities here because i’m politically ignorant but that is the zest.

Why of all places Cebu?? Cebu is not that big with respect to land size. However, Cebu is one of the key cities of the Philippines with major economic zones. Laymen say that it’s just about greed of power. Some politicians can no longer run for public office so they’ll create ‘places’ where they could. So neat huh! I understand though that this is not an easy process. It has to go through a plebiscite.

I’m wondering, some time from now, will I then be not living in Cebu City anymore? So my address would be no longer Cebu but Cebu ek-ek whatever!

Goodness gracious great ball of fire!?!? Don’t ‘they’ have other important matters to attend to?? Just asking…

i’m sooo happy, i have the mp3s of Full House songs already… yay nanglingbawt akong balhibo minaw hehehe! a big thanks to Aneshka for sending…mabaw ra gyud kaau ko ug kalipay :)

    Hmmm… I’m not into politics too, ylan but there’s one reason that I can think of (which is, as usual, the no. 1 agenda politicians always have in their mind) - money. I’ve learned from my late father why many local politicians would fight to have their town become a city. It’s all about the budget. A city has more budget and of course, the more budget they get, the more money they can corrupt. If Cebu will be divided, each province will have their individual budget. Thus, the cities under each provinces will now have their share of the budget twice as before. Hope you get the picture. :)

    Haaayyy… kulangan ra tingali cla sa ilang pork barrel… mao na!

    malou, gamay ra ang cebu compare sa ubang lugar pero dako lang ug income ang cebu kay daghan man mga companies diri…yes u are right, taga cebu means taga sugbu, if sugbuanon, yes cebuano/cebuana.. sugbuak is just the act to divide Cebu not the name of Cebu…

    yes gwenn, i got the picture… mao gyud nakulangan ra ni sila sa makuarta, ug dili sila kalansar, wala na…
