Cebu (Cebuano: 'Sugbo') is a province in the Philippines, consisting of Cebu Island and 167 surrounding islands. It is located to the east of Negros, to the west of Leyte and Bohol islands. Cebu is a long narrow island stretching 225 kilometers from north to south, surrounded by 167 neighbouring, smaller islands, which include Mactan, Bantayan, Malapascua, Olango and the Camotes Islands. Cebu has narrow coastlines, limestone plateaus and coastal plains. It also has rolling hills and rugged mountain ranges traversing the northern and southern lengths of the island. Cebu's highest mountains are over 1000 meters high. Flat tracts of land can be found in the towns of Bogo, San Remigio, Medellin and Daanbantayan at the northern region of the province. Its capital is Cebu City, the oldest city in the Philippines, which forms part of the Cebu Metropolitan Area together with four neighboring cities which include Danao City, Lapu-Lapu City, Mandaue City and Talisay City and eight other municipalities. Mactan-Cebu International Airport, located in Mactan island, is the second busiest airport in the Philippines.

Cebu is one of the most developed provinces in the Philippines, with Cebu City as the main center of commerce, trade, education and industry in the Visayas. The United Kingdom based Condé Nast Traveler Magazine named Cebu the seventh best island destination in the Indian Ocean-Asia region in 2007, eighth best Asian-Pacific island destination in 2005, seventh in 2004 and in 2009.

Full story: MANILA, Philippines â A Philippine hospital recommended penalties Friday, including possible dismissal, for three doctors and a nurse who conducted a rowdy operation on a patient that was videotaped and posted on YouTube. The unidentified doctors and nurses from the central Philippine city of Cebu have been condemned by medical associations. Health Secretary Francisco Duque III has ordered an investigation. The Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu, where the operation to remove an object from the patient's rectum took place Jan. 3, recommended filing administrative cases against the four personnel, with penalties ranging from reprimands to dismissals for violating a code of conduct and ethical standards. Medical center spokesman Dr. Emmanuel Gines said the government-run hospital can only recommend penalties to the Health Department and cannot take action on its own. The nearly 3-minute video of a noisy operating room shows doctors and nurses laughing, giggling and cheering. At one point, a hand appears with a cell phone camera taking a close-up picture of the surgery. As a doctor gingerly pulls out a 6-inch-long spray canister from the male patient's rectum, someone shouts, "Baby out!" amid loud cheers. The doctor then removes the canister cap and sprays the contents toward a crowd of nurses and doctors viewing the procedure. The 39-year-old patient, who remains unidentified, plans next week to file a complaint seeking the revocation of the licenses <b>...</b>

Nov 2007 Prisoners at Cebu are considered the most dangerous offenders in the Philippines. But thanks to four hours of dance lessons a day, their behaviour has been transformed. Previously, Cebu prison was a wretched place ruled by rival gangs. But when the warden introduced dance lessons, everything changed. "Everyone became friends". Now the prisoners spend most of the day practising new routines. Videos of them dancing to 80s classics have become a big hit on YouTube. Produced by SBS/Dateline Distributed by Journeyman Pictures

I saw the CPDRC dancing prisoners in Cebu, Philippines dance to Flo Rida, Soulja Boy, MC Hammer, Gloria, and more. Ironically they don't dance to Jailhouse Rock. I documented the experience seeing the inmates dance to teach you how to see them live.

*TO ALL VIEWERS PLEASE READ: There would be a few reasons why I'd want to disable comments for this video. 1. People want to trash talk. There is nothing wrong with criticism but please have more class and breeding before writing down any comments. Keep in mind that I uploaded this video to support my friends. I DID NOT TAKE THIS VIDEO. It sucks for me to see such foul comments on MY Youtube page. 2. Discrimination. So what if they're Visayan? We're all Filipino and there should be no discrimination within our race. It upsets me to see how some Tagalogs think too proud of themselves. I've grown up in both Cebu and Manila and all I can say is neither of you aren't ALL THAT. Filipinos are Filipinos. That's why he have this show in the first place. Pilipinas Got Talent. PINOY PRIDE. We should be proud. 3. People who tend to make 'GIRO' or 'MAYABANG' comments on this video tick me off. **So please please. Consider what I said above before making any comments. I AM THIS CLOSE TO DISABLING COMMENTS FOR THIS VIDEO. Thank you so much for your time. PEACE! - Poi :) Presenting: Daryl Bacus and Niko Lima Dance Showdown with Luis Manzano and Billy Crawford 3 JUDGES SAID YES!
