    National anthem played during the last movie

    by sunshine_01 Updated Jan 11, 2008

    If you intend to watch the last show at the movie theatre, do take note that the national anthem will be played in the theatre before the start of the show. You are required to stand up when the national anthem was played.

    It was really cheap watching a movie in Cebu, it cost from P80 - P120 per show per person.

    Prayer session in the evening

    by sunshine_01 Updated Jan 10, 2008

    If you happened to be in a shopping centre or supermarket at about 6pm. You'll notice that most of the activities almost come to a standstill. As most of the philippinos are christians, the shopping centre will broadcast the prayers and the people will stop whatever things that they do and recite the prayers softly.

  • Begging for money.

    by yen_2 Updated Jan 22, 2004

    There are ship operators from Iligan City, Cagayan de Oro City going to Cebu City like WG&A, Cebu Ferries Companies. Where I ligan don't have an airport so we have to take a ship going to Cebu and besides it's the safest and the fastest in going to Cebu City.

    Anyhow, when the ship will almost arrive in the pier, you can see "Bajao's" as they called were begging for money and they will jump out directly in their small boats to get that coins you give to them. Most of them have babies with them in the boat. Any amount is graciously okey with them.

    Bajao, they are called.

    Home based businesses

    by Iluv2surf2 Written Jul 7, 2006

    It seems like most people have home based businesses. This is often a primary source of income, and for some, it is supplemental income. Each business is unique and attempts to fill a niche.
