Espina: Holiday cheers

In my diary

CEBU will never let the holidays pass without all types of fun and frolics.

AyalaMalls Central Bloc opened at Cebu IT Park, just at the height of Christmas shopping. Wow, we live at Park Vista Townhouse, and surely, this place will take away some hours we spend at Landers.

The place has almost everything: A mall supermarket, cinemas, department stores of all sorts, dining outlets and more. Maybe, more banks (so far, I see BPI), and various pharmaceutical outlets will emerge. On the other side, is the Seda Hotel. Mind you, a bus terminal is right across the mall. But, sad to say, traffic will be heavier. Cebu IT Park will be super congested, and we will see more call center agents and employees roaming around in the vicinity as if they own the roads. Ayala must adopt better traffic routes with more visible traffic officers. Add some more lights as well. Garbage must be regularly collected and checked.

When we moved to Park Vista in Apas in 1997, Cebu IT Park had vast greens and one lonely, low cost People Support office. All of a sudden, buildings rose one after the other. Parks are gone. More jeepneys and countless cabs ply the Apas routes. Sidewalk vendors are everywhere in the San Miguel entrance. Cars and jeepneys park along the road and asphalted roads have more potholes when rains pour. These are aftermaths of rising business in Cebu IT Park and the general Lahug, Apas area. Our garbage in Park Vista is irregularly collected. Technology has its price.

Yes, at Cebu IT Park, environs are tall, huge call centers and condominiums. Business is booming; Real estate at its height! Cebu booms and zooms!
