3.1 Social Composition and Characteristics

 

2People living in Cordova either by birth or by choice are known as Cordovanhons. Cordovanhons are fun-loving people with intense fervor for its culture.  The true-blooded Cordovanhons are naturally hospitable, religious and God-fearing. These people are also known to be family-oriented bonded by a close tie of kinship and camaraderie.

 

Notwithstanding, the ruralized setting of the town, some Cordovanhons managed their way to the top and excelled in their chosen fields of endeavor, not just in the Philippines but also abroad.   Some Cordovanhons become famous and successful lawyers, educators, doctors, nurses and engineers, while those who did not become professionals seemed to be contented and happy with their ordinary lives.

 

Generally, the people in Cordova are living a simple life.  Though it cannot be said that Cordova living is totally tainted with the rural styles and setup, it is still appropriate to describe it as living quite far and free from the city or urban complexities. To earn a living, some residents are employed in the nearby cities of Cebu, Mandaue or Lapu-Lapu either as professionals, laborers, businessmen, employees, etc. The most popular employment hub is the Mactan Export Processing Zone Authority (MEPZA) in Lapu-Lapu City where some Cordovanhons are working either as executives, supervisors, employees, laborers, or factory workers.

 

While others are trying their luck outside the town, there are those who just settled in Cordova. Small and medium scale industries and enterprises are also present in the area that helped absorb the unemployed Cordovanhons. The transportation industry is another alternative livelihood opportunity within Cordova, driving on Van for Hires, jeepneys, multicabs, tricycles and trisikads are common.

 

Aside from all these, the oldest occupations in Cordova which are fishing and shell gathering remain to become a large part of the Cordovanhons culture.  The wide fishing ground and the vast intertidal flats belonging to the Municipality of Cordova have supported this occupation of the fishers and the shell gatherers/gleaners.   The ever hardworking fishers and shell gleaners report to their chosen areas in the sea or in the shore almost every day not just to make both ends meet for them but also to provide every family of their favorite seafoods and shell products.

 

Criminality in Cordova is almost zero, crime incidents are often described as isolated cases. Nevertheless, the Cordova PNP Station had encountered problems related to the illegal small-time gambling activities such as tong-its, tigbakay, masiao, mahjong, and video karera.  While those engaged in these activities reasoned that they are doing it mainly for fun and recreation purposes only, the Cordova leaders are stern in its decision to make the town gambling-free.

 

On the other hand, in terms of leisure and entertainment, the Cordovanhons are now adept with the videoke singing, which is common at night time, but particularly indulged themselves to this type of merriment during weekends as their way of winding up their stresses and pressures after a week-long work.  It is not surprising, after all, that videoke bars are sprouting in almost every corner of the streets.  Occasionally, however, discos are happening if there fiestas or special celebrations, which filled the nights with its enthusiastic sounds, more often, the young people are involved in this.

However, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) technically classified only three (3) barangays in Cordova as urban, namely:  Poblacion, Gabi and Ibabao while all other ten (10) barangays are still considered as rural.
