Cebu is famous on it's culture, treasures, people's hospitality and most of all, the white sand of it's beaches. But lately, a Social Media post captured everybody's attention when a boy threw some trashes to the sea of Basdaku Beach Resort, a famous public beach in Moalboal, southern part of Cebu. Alex Banaag and his team (friends) came to Moalboal for a get together but that awesome weekend was polluted. Based on the his Facebook post, the boy stopped throwing his second basket full of garbages ( biodegradable and plastics ) when a lady approached him but what surprised them was when the Kid's "boss" took over and dumped those garbages to the sea.

Look at this kid with a basket of stuff, heading to the sea. What are inside that basket?

And there! Trashes in the sea!! What a shame!!!

Taking a look at what he had done. Maybe he has conscience and will pick them back to his basket?

Oh, he just left them! What a shame!!!

Now, here's your beautiful Basdaku Beach Resort!!!!
Garbages everywhere! Tsk2x!!!

Oh, wait, Is he coming back? Another basket of garbages?

Oh my, lookie! What happen to this kid? I think he was just asked to do it but wait, he should not, right?

Look at this!

Here's the full script of the Facebook post/status.

" Bas Dako Garbage Disposal.. What was supposedly a perfect weekend getaway was spoiled by this scenario. We were swimming near the shore when this kid threw garbage a few feet from where we were. After seeing the wastes dumped into the beach line, we immediately ran away to avoid getting "contaminated".
A lady seated a few meters from us approached the boy when he was about to throw a 2nd basket full of trash and whatever she said to him prompted him to stop. He went back and told his boss about it and his boss surprisingly took over and dumped 2 more. The kid followed and dumped even more!!!
Calling all government officials... Please put a stop to this. Jail the culprits!"

Now, do we need to wait for our Seas and Beaches go dirty and ugly? Aside from these natural wonders give Locals opportunities and jobs, they are also signs of how wonderful and beautiful our place is. And we know that our government will just wait for this social media post to trend and be showed on Television before taking actions, we, the locals and concerned Citizens should do something in stopping this. Yes, We agree to Alex's post, "please put a stop to this, jail the culprits!"

Parkmall's infancy in 2008 entailed many challenges: the Mandaue Reclamation was not yet the busy, commercially rich area as it is today. Jeepney and cab drivers were completely unfamiliar with the newly finished mall.

Did Parkmall even have a chance of survival in this location?

Six years later, Parkmall has overcome the odds and even turned out to be the catalyst for development in the area. We are now celebrating six long years of turning difficulties into opportunities and staying committed to excellence.

"Parkmall was intended to bring back the simplicity of families spending quality time together. " explains Neal Carlson Co, General Manager. "It's about the nostalgia of childhood, playing silly games in the Park, casual picnics outdoors, weekend family get-together over meals."

Architect James Co, Managing Director and the primary designer of Parkmall, created a landscaped garden embracing the mall structure making it the pioneering hybrid mall in Cebu - one of the first open-air lifestyle centers with a shopping facility and the longest al fresco dining strip in the city. Parkmall breathed new life to an abandoned warehouse in Mandaue, incorporating eco-friendly design elements.

"Parkmall has found its niche and we are very happy with what we have accomplished," says Mr. Co. "We are proud what we have stayed true to our core of being a Cebuano mall, with Cebuano values, committed to give a unique experience to our patrons."

We are more than just a business. We are consciously aiming to be a relevant part of the Cebuano community by being a venue for their joys and passions.

So what are we expecting for this month about this month-long anniversary? This October, Parkmall will not just celebrate its anniversary on the 17th, but they will hold on festivities for the entire month. Each week has different campaigns that center on Cebuani lifestyle.

Week 1 - Relaxation
