I don't know anything about it, I goggled it and got nothing. It is PROBABLY either in Metro Cebu, Davao, Tacoloban, or Maynila (etc)and is probably small and insignificant.
Do you know which island is it on? Leyte? Cebu? Luzon? Mindanao? ...
I looked it up in Filipino and still got nothing.
Sometimes they're various spellings... maybe... I think the most commonly referred to name is Ozamiz, which is on Mindanao the big southern Island. Its about 100,000 people strong... Just my guess, like the real spelling for Taipei is Taibei, but it is referred to as Taipei. same with Ho chi Minh-Saigon, Lisbon-Lisboa, Manila-Maynila... It is probably translated from Filipino to English and the 'S' got turned into a 'z'. Just how the real spelling of Manila is in Fact Maynila, but in English it is Manila while in Filipino is Maynila. English is the primary language in the Philippines, everyone basically greets each other formally in English, signs are in 95% english, Adds are about 70% english, most people speak English and it is used if a group of people don't all speak Tagalog or Visaya...etc...
So i think that your city is in fact ozamiz, as it is better know. It just that probably the city isn't that well know for people to know the Filipino Spelling? (it might be English but i don't think so)

Thank you vary much for the info. After researching it I've came up with the same. Your right it does seem like a hostile environment.
