Yep, the good news is jeepney commuting in Cebu can be easy! I learned of this Cebu jeepney number coding system when i was a kid from my father who advised me that whenever i am in the big city (yesss!) and got myself somehow lost, to just look-out for the jeep bearing the no ’23’ on […]
‘Danggit Bai!’ So the ladies and gents of Cebu’s Taboan Market beckons every tourists who sets foot in this famous dried fish haven.

I have become familiar with both Carcar, Cebu and Liliw, Laguna’s footwear industry. And if I compare the produce of these two towns, when it comes to any abaca laced sandals or wedges, I have to give it to Liliw made. When it comes to espadrille I think they are at par with each other in design and quality wise. Liliw ladies espadrilles’ price range is from P230 to P300 comparable to that of Carcar made espadrilles.
Carcar famous espadrilles!
I am a proud Cebuana but I just have to lament the fact that Carcar produces so many cheap sandals that easily disintegrated, these are the ones you see all
At the constant prodding of my brother Nicko, we finally made the trip to Carcar, Cebu and the main reason is espadrille. Espadrille, that come back kid from the 80’s, has become so popular again! In fact I am noticing espadrilles everywhere in Cebu – in malls, in tiangges, in sidestreets – it feels like an espadrille invasion has overtaken the city! Despite its availability in all sort of places, we decided to head south, travel to where espadrilles are made, you know maybe we can get a good bargain from direct suppliers of espadrilles in Carcar, you can never know heheheh.
