THE “ Ber” months are just a breath away. For many, August ushered in all sorts of events from birthdays and homecomings to inductions and product launchings. Welcome back, Julius and Nelia, from a well-deserved travel. We missed you, Nelia, in many media events.

Tourism events

The Province of Cebu has all hands full with the forthcoming 21st Itop (Inter-Islands Tourism Policy Forum) event on Oct. 18-20,  hosted by Cebu, and the 2018 Eatof (East Asia Inter-Regional Tourism Forum) to be held in Tottori, Japan. In fact, several working level meetings were held in Cebu and Tottori, respectively.

The winning streaks of Cebu’s blossoming young singer Clifford Gawchua continue to glow. He recently won Mr. North District 8, Cebu City. Kudos, Clifford! Your star will continue to shine. Clifford will be a featured front-act singer during the Zonta 1 family concert with Jose Mari Chan on Nov. 23, with selected USJ-R Dramatics and Cultural Ensemble alumni led by Bessie Villamor, emcee Carol Ballesteros,  Knapsack dancers and Junjet Primor.

Dining and wining are part of Cebu’s food trails. Cocina and La Vie Gelatifrenchissimo opened recently.

SP Communication Kit. The perfect tenses express time and meanings. The present perfect is an immediate action in the past, usually with the use of “just” or “already.” Example: I have already eaten my lunch a few minutes ago. The past perfect is an action done and often times used to complete a simple past tense. Example: I had submitted my report when you came. The future perfect is an action foreseen to be done in a specific future time. Example: By noon today, I shall have finished my report. Ah... grammar is indeed difficult and one needs constant study and use, to be able to “perfect it!”
