Monday, August 18, 2014
A “grand toast” for 888 Forum on its eighth anniversary, which was held at the Marco Polo Plaza Cebu. It was also the time to award notable, media and civic leaders. The 888 Forum has been the forum on current issues sustained by the indefatigable leadership of Bobby Joseph.
The 445th year of Cebu
A simple but meaningful evening was the celebration of the 445th founding anniversary of the Province of Cebu. A hearty welcome was articulated by Cebu Vice Gov. Agnes Magpale. She launched the “Bidlisiw Sa Sugbu” awards, which will honor outstanding Cebuanos. Cebu Gov. Hilario Davide III once again pledged that he will continue to serve his constituents, all the time keeping the legacy of the past as Cebu moves toward growth, with the weal of the future as the main focus.
Islands Souvenirs Pasalubong
We congratulate Jay Aldeguer for another creative approach to propel tourism. At Salinas Drive is a crowd favorite, the Island Pasalubong, which sells not only Cebu-crafted T-shirts but also native kakanin and fresh local fruits. We were there twice and had a good fill of palitaw, bibingka, sapin-sapin, kuchinta, etc.
