Espina: Kasaulogan sa Blue Water-A A +A
Monday, July 14, 2014
THE ocean will sparkle with blue waves when the Kasaulogan sa Blue Water celebrates an engaging Fiesta Filipiniana at 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 19, with dinner event at the Beach. It’s the 25th year of Amuma of Blue Water Maribago’s decades of “caring, pampering, nurturing, and trending,” which earned valuable commendation from tourists all over the world. There’s something unique at Blue—Water! It’s environment—friendly, restful, classy, and simply a ‘gift of nature’!
June – July Highlights
The American Chamber of Commerce’s (Amcham) “Thanks for the Memories” to celebrate Fil-American Friendship Day last Friday, July 4, at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel, was something different aside from the usual dancing and raffle draws. Guests saw the presence of friends from the Central Command, PA, the Philippine Navy and Air Force, veterans and soldiers of war. We salute Lt. Gen. John S. Bonafos, AFP, and his staff, to include the officers of the Philippine Air Force and Navy, for making the event meaningful.
The highlight was a 45-minute spoof of Bob Hope’s show (script written, directed and performed by John Domingo), which featured Hollywood performers, like the Andrews Sisters (Alice Woolbright, Iris Arcenas and June Alegrado); Bing Crosby (Herbert Buot); Bill Mallory, accompanied by Wilson and Miles Ng (Bill stole the show); and Frank Sinatra (Edwin Castañeda). The USJ-R Lhuillier scholars (Sean Delfin, Japheth Mag-aso, Edwin Castañeda and Arielle Famador) sang the anthems of the Republic of the Philippines and the United States of America as well as the Invocation, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” which set the atmosphere. The footages drafted by Speechcom International’s Tricia Silva and Allef’s Jennylyn Salazar gave the historical framework, with the Return of General Douglas Mac Arthur. Special guest, former Cebu City mayor Mario Ortiz (with wife Lita and son Edwin) clinched the touching moments of the evening.
The mime and authentic props as well as the PA Band created a semblance of war and were perfectly crafted by event chairperson Alice Woolbright.

Sabores at Marco Polo
The month of July started with a higher note as Gemma Pido prepared an authentic and delightful “Sabores de España!” at Marco Polo Plaza Hotel.
SP Comm Kit. Problems with tenses? Use simple tenses instead of perfect tenses, whenever possible. The present tense is used for present action, habits, and truth conditions: She teaches English. She wakes up early every morning. The square has four sides. She is lovely. For actions which happened definitely in the past use the past tense: She taught English last year (not, She has taught English last year).
She used to wake up early in the morning. She was lovely when she was young. Future actions need future tense: I will teach English next summer. Say: She doesn’t eat fruits (not she doesn’t eats fruit. Likewise, say: I did not see her, not I did not saw her).
