” Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makararating sa paroroonan.”

This quote is widely attributed to our national hero Jose Rizal.

Looking back in the past, we can learn many things – curious and fascinating things that will make us sit back and ponder on the meaning of life.

Before we get teary-eyed here, let’s see how Cebu looked like then and now.

Cebu has changed through the years.

Whether it is for good or bad, we have come a long way and there’s no stopping us from moving forward.

Despite the progress we’ve made, we must also try to preserve what can be preserved.
