Queen City of the South, Cebu City, Philippines

Why Cebu gets the title ‘Queen City of the South?

FROM the beginning of the 19th century up until the advent of World War II, no other province in the south was as important historically and politically and as progressive as Iloilo.

With its sugar industry flourishing and many other divergent economic resources, Iloilo’s economy was catapulted to enormous heights. And with the American government pouring in enormous political and economic functions to the city, Iloilo became the second major seat of power during that time with all administrative functions channeling to the province and Manila only.

The “Queen City of the South” title was then made as its official recognition when Iloilo was legally declared a city for the second time by the virtue of the Commonwealth Act No. 158 in 1937.

For historical glimpse, the city was first created by a Royal Decree of Reina Cristina of Spain on October 5, 1889. Its Ayuntamiento city government was inaugurated on February 7, 1890 by General Valeriano Weyler.

By the end of the Japanese Occupation, however, Iloilo’s economy, life and infrastructure were damaged. The declining sugar economy, the deteriorating peace and order situation in the countryside, divisive politics and the exodus of Ilonggos to other cities and islands that offered better opportunities such as Manila, Bacolod and Cebu led to Iloilo’s demise in economic importance in southern Philippines.

From 1960s towards 1990s, Iloilo’s economy progressed in a moderate pace.

The economic momentum thence angled off to its neighbor Cebu City, which, until 1937, had never been more than a town since its original founding in 1565.

Like greased lightning, this oldest settlement established by the Spaniards in the country swiftly transmogrified into the second largest city in the Philippines, the second most significant metropolitan centre in the Philippines.

No city in the south progressed as much as Cebu in so short a time during this period.
By the time the 80s drew to a close, growth has spread to the countryside.

Indeed, a lot of this development and the economic expansion can be credited to the way the province and its capital city are governed by its local officials.

The public administrators of Cebu have been known to be development-oriented, steering Cebu to greater heights by putting in place infrastructure facilities needed for economic growth.
The Osmenas are prime examples, particularly Serge, Lito, Tomas, and Sonny. It was during their watch that Cebu experienced economic boom.

In many places, powerful politicians dictate their terms and faithful adherence to their plans and programs.

But in Cebu, political leaders upon assumption to their respective offices, work for the benefit of their constituents. It is because from hereon, partisanship has no place in the hallowed halls of the capitol.

They function to serve the needs of their people. As far as they are concerned, in terms of economic development, there is no formally declared association with a political party affiliation — at least until the next election cycle.

It was only a matter of time before Cebu came to be recognized as the Philippines’ main domestic shipping port and home to about 80 percent of the country’s domestic shipping companies.

The province also holds the second largest international flights in the Philippines and is a significant center of commerce, trade and industry in the Visayas and Mindanao regions.

Most importantly, Cebu ranks number one because of the current unity that has never been seen before in any province — unity among elected officials, unity among business groups, unity among its people, and unity between the private and public sectors.

Seeing it in another way—this regionalistic attitude, whatever negative connotation it brings, paved the way for Cebu’s progress.

Indeed, it is an accepted fact that Cebuanos are intensely regionalistic. They also are a very proud people.

For the Cebuanos, this only means they are very proud of their craft and culture.

They think highly of themselves and show this by “loving their own,” which explains the refusal to speak Tagalog.

You see, Cebuanos insist on speaking in their native tongue to just about anyone, except foreigners, of course. If someone from the National Capital Region speaks to them in Tagalog, they would rather reply in English than speak Tagalog. 

But then again, proponents of regionalism say that strengthening a region’s governing bodies and political powers within a larger country would create efficiencies of scale to the region, promote decentralization, develop a more rational allocation of the region’s resources for benefit of the local populations, increase the efficient implementation of local plans, raise competitiveness levels among the regions and ultimately the whole country and save taxpayers money.

Overall, Cebu continues to excel and investors are drawn to Cebu because of the culture of professionalism and craftsmanship among its people, the vast highly skilled manpower resources resilient amid trying times, its fair weather, relative peace and business-friendly atmosphere.

Thus, Cebu being what it is today, is a triumph in local governance that led to a progressive and vibrant community. It could safely assume the de facto moniker as the “Queen City of the South.”

Without fear of contradiction and without malice, we doubt if Iloilo could retake this lost honor.
The public is already accustomed to the notion that Cebu rightfully deserves the prestigious title better than Iloilo.

Magandang GENSAN...

The City of General Santos (abbreviated G.S.C. or GenSan.; Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Heneral Santos, Filipino: Lungsod ng Heneral Santos) is the southern most port city of the Republic of the Philippines. It is one of the most populous urban centers in the country with a population of 529,542 as per data of 2007 census.[1][2] GenSan is bounded by municipalities of Sarangani Province namely Alabel in the East of the city, and Maasim in the South. The city is likewise bounded by South Cotabato municipalities of Polomolok and Malungon in the North, and the municipality of T'boli in the West of the city. General Santos City is a component of South Cotabato, Cotabato City, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos City (SOCCSKSARGEN) growth region.


Organized under the National Land Settlement Administration (NLSA) of the Commonwealth Government headed by President Manuel L. Quezon, General Paulino Santos led the relocation of 62 Christian settlers from Luzon to the shores of Sarangani Bay aboard the steam ship “Basilan” of Compania Maritima on February 27, 1939. The 62 pioneers (mostly agricultural and trade graduates) were the first big batch of settlers to land in GenSan with the mission to industriously cultivate GenSan's fertile expanse of land. After this first influx of pioneers, thousands more from Luzon and the Visayas have subsequently migrated into the area. This started the displacement of some native B'laan tribe to the mountains and lost their livelihood.

The B'laan people are the original settlers of GenSan which they called Dadiangas during the time. The B’laans live a nomadic way of life in and around GenSan. Evidence of their early occupancy are the names of the places in the city which were derived from their native terms. One significant name is Dadiangas, their native call for a tree which has thorns on it’s trunk and stems that abundantly thrive in GenSan during the time. Under Indigenous Peoples Right Act IPRA law RA 8371, these Dadiangas trees are now protected and it is proven under the Philippine jurisprudence of the Supreme Court. In the present time, the B'laan tribe live side by side in harmony with the new generation of settlers and other immigrants.

In March 1939, the first formal settlement in the city was established in ’’Alagao’’ which is now known as Barangay Lagao. Lagao district was known then as the “Municipal District of Buayan” under the jurisdiction of the deputy governor of the Municipal District of Glan. Until it officially became an independent Municipal District of Buayan on October 1, 1940 appointing Datu Sharif Zainal Abedin—an Arab mestizo married to a daughter of a very influential datu of lower Buayan—as the first district municipal mayor.

One year after the mark of Philippine Independence from the Americans on July 4, 1946, the Municipality of Buayan became a 4th class regular municipality by virtue of the Executive Order Number 82, dated August 18, 1947 by President Manuel Roxas, absorbing the Municipal District of Glan whose low income bracket at the time disqualified it for the honor. Dadiangas was the seat of government for the Municipality of Buayan electing Ireneo Santiago as its first Municipal Mayor on a local election that was held on November 11, 1947. Mayor Santiago was formally inducted on January 1, 1948.[3]

Six years later, in June 1954, the Municipality of Buayan was renamed General Santos as a tribute to its great pioneer. This was made possible by Republic Act No. 1107 authored by Congressman Luminog Mangelen of Cotabato Province.

From 1963 to 1967, during the incumbency of Mayor Lucio A. Velayo, an upsurge in the municipality's economy was experienced as several large agri-based and multi-national corporations such as Dole Philippines, General Milling Corporation and UDAGRI have expanded into the area. Although it was then qualified to become a fourth class city from being a municipality, the residents rejected a move by Congressman Salipada Pendatun to convert the Municipality of Buayan into a city and to rename it ’’Rajah Buayan’’.

Finally, on July 8, 1968, upon the approval of Republic Act No. 5412, which was authored by the late Congressman James L. Chiongbian, the Municipality of General Santos was converted into a city while keeping its name. It was inaugurated on September 5 of that year. Antonio C. Acharon became its first city mayor. In 1988, two decades after its inauguration, it was declared as a highly urbanized city.

The Old farmer and His Son!!

An old farmer wrote to his son in prison.

"This year I wont be able to plant potatoes because I can't dig the ground. I know if you were here you would help me"

The son wrote back:

"Dad don't think of digging the ground because thats where I buried the guns"

But Police read the letter and the very next day, the whole field of the farm of his father was dug by  police looking for guns but nothing was found.

The next day son wrote again:
"Now Dad, plant your potatoes, thats the best I can do from here"

The farmer and his son were poor. The son was a dreamer and went to the city. The son wanted to help his father but fell to temptation and became part of a mafia or syndicate. Eventually he was caught and put to jail. The police monitored all communications so that they can gather informations. The son got a letter from his father. The son felt guilty about the condition of his father and the farm. It was already planting time the son cooked up an idea of letting the police dig the entire farm by giving them a false information about the guns. It was a joke for the police but its a very big help to his father and to the farm.

Old Woman!

Someone has email me this sad story of an old woman:

       His family went to the beach, as they arrive, he noticed an old woman sitting at the shore.  Hours went by, its already midnight. The old woman still sitting there. He approach the said old woman "'Nay, sino po kasama ninyo?." Mga anak ko apo, pero pumunta lang daw sila sa trabaho, tapos balikan lang ako pag-uwi nila."He said " Maghahatinggabi na po Nay! sigurado po ba kayo na babalik pa sila?". 

        The old woman said;"Oo apo, hindi nila ako pababayaan malaki ang tiwala ko sa mga anak ko dahil sa akin sila nanggaling, saan man sila mapunta lukso ng dugo parin ang mananaig, ito nga't may sulat silang iniwan sa akin apo",  His tears fell down as he read the letter, it says" Kung sino man ang makakakita sa matandang ito, pakidala niyo na lang po sa Home for the aged. Thanks po".

       The old woman said; Don't cry apo, Huwag ka ng umiyak andyan naman ang Panginoon ako nama'y Kanyang gagabayan hindi naman Niya ako pababayaan. Tulungan mo na lang ako sa pagdarasal na nawa'y ang mga anak ko ay haplusin Niya at ng ako'y maalala.
