Balamban: Man, who did not like soup served on him, burns house down

A 39-year-old man, who was enraged because he was not satisfied with how the pork soup or nilat-ang baboy that was served to him was cooked, burned down his house instead.

The incident happened last Sunday, December 17, in Sitio Sam-ang, Barangay Pondol, Balamban town in western Cebu.

Police later arrested Gerald Balsa, 39, who reportedly got so angry for being served a boiled pork soup that was not to his liking.

According to FO2 Gerald Fritz Desierto, investigator of the Balamban Fire Station, Balsa is now under police custody and may face charges of arson and physical injury.


Stampede risk high over old route for Fiesta Señor – CBRT mgt.

An official of the CBRT management said the risk of a stampede is high if the old route for the Fiesta Señor foot processions will be retained.

Engineer Norvin Ymbong, the project manager of CBRT, acknowledged that using the traditional route is still possible, but the issue lies in the segregators that restrict the movement of devotees.

The warning came as Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama remains adamant in his decision to retain the old route for the foot processions during the Fiesta Señor.

Ymbong said that while using the old route is possible, the segregators restricting the movement of the people may pose some problems like a stampede.

Herbosa said that the country remains burdened, not only by infectious diseases but more so by “lifestyle diseases,” as he put it.

Urging the public to make healthy choice” this Christmas season, Herbosa noted that the top illnesses among Filipinos are still heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes.

Herbosa earlier advised the public to refrain from what he called the ma food — which he said stood for mataba, matamis, maalat or those that are fatty, sugary, and salty — because these may heighten the risk of hypertension, cholesterol, and diabetes.
