I just moved from my island mission area to the metro city of  Cebu last month and so I am still trying to make myself familiar with all the geography, landmarks, peoples, and events here. It feels really great nga kanang free kaayo ko ba nga maglakaw-lakaw diri sa Cebu, something that I could not do while I was in Zamboanga. You see, I was always guarded by CAFGUs/military escorts for several years. Tapos, pag-abot diri sa siyudad sa Sugbu, free kaayo ko maglatagaw sa Colon ug magtabuk-tabuk sa dalan sa Fuente without fear nga naay mopunit nako for kidnap for ransom ba.

 

When I was invited for the 110 anniversary celebration of the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the Ayala the other day, I was actually worried because wala ko kadumdum sa The Gallery. Hahaha, kay alang-alang, bag-o pa lang gud ko diri sa Cebu mao nga effort kaayo ning pagpangita sa mga likoonon, subidahonon ug mga baktasunon.

 

Anyway, when I was already at the Ayala, the best thing really was to ask the sekyu for directions. Dili man gud ko kabalo atong swipe-swipe nila for directions. Anyway, the venue was easy to locate but what took me too long to reach The Gallery was this:

Nice no?

 

This is the work of Vito Selma – a Cebuano designer. His family has been a major player in the furniture industry in the for 3 decades. He was also awarded one of The Outstanding Business Young Leaders (TOBYL) by the Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

 

His works has been displayed in many many parts of th world, including the Espacio Nudage Exhibit in Santander, Spain (dili Santander Cebu ha). He has also raised funds to support his many advocacies.
