One good thing about working in a newspaper… … is that you get featured every once in a while. 🙂

In the company of Zorro and other drags

August 11, 2008

Let’s forget for a while the decent rules of argumentation and debate and pretend that name calling is the only morally acceptable technique in crushing one’s political opponent. If you were not busy anticipating Beijing last week, you would notice how our politicians provided us with a different kind of Olympics by calling each other […]

Festival madness

May 3, 2008

WHILE you’re reading this, presumably over froccino and choco chip cookies, school children elsewhere in the province are being made up in the image and likeness of mermaids and fairies and ogres in a bucolic dream of placing their barangay in the self-conscious map called tourism. We’re becoming an island of festivals and all you […]

The Beatles at ‘SuroySuroy Sugbo’

January 25, 2008

Been offline since Wednesday to join Capitol’s “SuroySuroy Sugbo – The Southern Heritage Trail”. The project has a point, really, got to admit. Works good for Cebu Province, works even better for the Gwen Garcia image. What’s the trip all about? It’s actually touring the towns and eating a lot of budbod and bakasi and […]

Cebu flop music festival

January 18, 2008

Caught in a time warp, these people! What ‘popular music’ are they talking about? I’m not a huge fan of Bisrock – many Bisrock songs suck bigtime. But despite its flaws, Bisrock has done what Cebu Flop Music Festival can only dream of, that is making Binisaya songs popular to the masses. ‘Nuff said!

Cebu: laid-back and idly urban

January 13, 2008

You are asked to list down a few good things about Cebu. What will you say aside from mangoes, hanging rice, ampao, danggit, and vigilante killings? Is there anything else? To guide you, here are these words that you can use: “laid-back” and “idly urban.” And I swear I’ve read the phrase “rurally urban” to […]
