Commercial break is over and we’re now back to my regular feature article. Today, I want to continue writing about the amazing people whom I’ve come to meet online and discover their amazing talents– but before I carry on introducing the main guest of honor, I just wanted to share a bit of trivia.
Throughout the years, I have not included in my few introductions about myself this particular info but, just for today, I am more than happy to share this much.
I was born in Cebu City, and although I may have not lived there long enough to learn more about the culture, my parents were never short to share about how proud they are to be cebuanos. In time, I also shared their mutual love for the island province.
Here’s a bit of info I can share, which I snipped from wikipedia.
“Cebu City is a first class highly urbanized city in the island province of Cebu in Central Visayas, Philippines. ”
Apart from the basic details I’ve shared, I was pleased to find out that there were many creative individuals from the tiny island of Cebu City whom I admired up to this very day and to name a few, popular artist/musicians such as Urbandub and Drive me to Juliet. However, they’re not really the main focus of this feature– I suppose, I just wanted to share a bit more about amazing Cebu before introducing my artist spotlight for this month. Ladies and Gentlemen, without further ado!
