    Amazing…….
    maybe its time for the capizenos to recognize how beautiful the province and the city itself…Its a wake up call for the gov’t to take some actions in promoting the city tourism….its a big insult that the young capizenos even the older ones that they were better familiar with boracay, racsos, sm, sampaguita garden but never been familiar or even known the city’s undiscover beauty….
    thanks for sharing it with us…
