The Sound Of The Giant South is gaining more recognition around the nation like never before. At the forefront of the whole movement is a band with a record that surpasses most bands that have come out of the Queen City of Cebu. They are none other than Urbandub.

We're very fortunate to attend the soft blessing of The Piazza at Venice, McKinely Hill soft launch and blessing at McKinley Hill - The Fort, Taguig.

Saw the documentary movie last October 31 and it was a mixed emotion. From the production down to the actual rehearsals, I must say that Michael Jackson really did his best. Now all he left was memories, I am pretty sure he'll always be remembered ... and am always his #1 fan.

Here is the official poster + the official soundtrack - "This is It"

And it feels as though I’ve seen your face a thousand times
And you said you really know me…

The Department of Tourism (DOT) is widely upholds Cebu's position as Asia’s Destination for eco-fashion with Bijoux Cebu, the country’s first grand showcase of fashion pieces made from sustainable natural materials and 'reclaimed' objects or scraps and trash.
