THE PROHIBITIONS DURING STO. NIÑO RITUALS AND SINULOG FESTIVAL
NO BACKPACKS, NO SELFIES, NO PHONE SIGNALS ON TWO DAYS, NO V.I.P. TREATMENT OF POLITICIANS BUT THEY ARE NOT BANNED.
But, surprise, no mention about drinking on the streets, which they repeatedly harped on in past Sto. Niño/Sinulog celebrations.
TERROR INCIDENTS? GOD, FORBID. Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña holds himself responsible for the safety of devotees, revelers and plain curiosity-seekers, natives, or visitors. There has been no bombing for the past 30 years, he said. Police chief Royina Garma, who should be saying what Osmeña promises, only says they have fielded enough troops to keep the peace and respond to any disruption. Pit Senyor!
