PRESIDENT JOYCE GARCIA-DIZON
A DECADE and two years ago, I wrote a book entitled, Cebu, a Place for All Seasons. I always did want to share the beauty of Cebu with others, which is why I embarked on that coffee- table book project. I always felt that being in Cebu is a celebration, a great joy. I have always enthused about how, at one moment, I could view the city from Cebu’s majestic mountains with the harbor scene as bonus, and in no time be at the balmy beaches, frolicking on white sands.
Years ago, when Cebu was not as busy nor as developed as it is now, we at Sun. Star already started to introduce Cebu to our Manila advertisers by inviting them over for a few of Sun. Star’s anniversary celebrations. We not only showered our guests with Cebuano hospitality, but we also enabled them to imbibe Cebu’s “joie de vivre,” Cebu’s spirit of celebration, even for a short duration.
Thus, this year’s theme of the Sun. Star Yearbook, celebrating Cebu, just expounds and enhances what has always been ingrained in me and in other Cebuanos, for sure, that Cebu itself, is indeed a celebration!
To recapitulate in abbreviated form, “C u in Cebu!”
