Globe Kamustahan fires up Cebu with K Brosas, Isay Alvarez and Robert Sena

Loyal Globe patrons from Cebu City and its adjacent provinces recently displayed a show of force during the company's "Kamustahan," a series of customer caravans across the country as Globe’s way of updating them and showing its appreciation for their many years of patronage. 

Individual customers, high-end Platinum subscribers, retailers as well as representatives from the local media were treated to a night of fun, good food, fanfare and first-hand information from company officials led by Globe President & CEO Ernest Cu, who on behalf of the company acknowledged their patronage and support through the years.

The Kamustahan was an opportunity for Globe to inform subscribers about the status of its network transformation, and about the improved customer experience that is to be expected from the new network.

“Rather than undertaking a mere business-as-usual capacity upgrade that costs much less, we decided to give customers the best network possible in the market,” s…

LBC pilots TXT Remit service in Cebu

LBC Remit Express, one of the country’s key players in the remittance industry, is introducing TXT Remit, the company’s newest and most convenient product which will allow Filipinos to send and receive money at the speed of a text message.

To be launched first in Cebu, the breakthrough service bridges the challenges of geographical location when transferring and claiming remittances. With this service, customers can instantly send and receive money anytime, anywhere in the Philippines via SMS.

“With TXT Remit, our customers will enjoy an increased level of service in terms of convenience, speed and reliability. The remittance process is now easier and faster just like sending a text message.
"We chose Cebu to pilot the service because of its dynamic remittance environment which is smaller and easier to monitor. Eventually, we will expand the service to other areas in the Philippines,” says Achilles Reyes, VP of LBC Money.

Big Flat Bread Tastiest Pizzas and Cheesecakes in Cebu

Big Flat Bread is a place for everyone to enjoy a good meal with good company at affordable prices in a decent setting.

BFB is one of the restaurants by Opportunists, Inc. of which Jim Uy, a Cebuano by birth, is the company president. It is a local pizza chain that began in Cagayan de Oro in 2009. 

Jim Uy grabbed the opportunity to be the first local pizza contender in Cagayan since he saw there were no other local players and he found a good location (Limketkai Mall).

Big Flat Bread immediately gained popularity and quickly grew to five branches within three years – two in Cagayan de Oro, one in Palawan and Butuan and now, Cebu. Kevin Lance Lim is the first franchisee for the Cebu branch.

BFB – as fondly named by regular customers – boasts of their thin crust pizza, baked in a brick oven, which comes in choices of two sauces: tomato sauce or white sauce. Pizza is served in three sizes – big (12”), bigger (18”) and biggest (30”). They not only offer an interesting variety of pizza flavor…

Awesome Fun at WAT EVER FAMILY KTV in Cebu

Filipinos are known to be great singers and maybe even the karaoke capital in the world! Karaoke can be found anywhere around the Philippines, even in far flung towns and provinces. 

Wat Ever Family KTV was born in Cagayan de Oro in 2010 from the company Opportunists, Inc. Since then, it has grown to three branches – Cagayan, Dumaguete and now, Cebu.

Wat Ever Family KTV Cebu houses 12 karaoke rooms that can comfortably accommodate 7-12 people, equipped with professional shock-proof mics, dancing disco lights and fully airconditioned. The rooms have quirky names derived from the word “whatever”. Songs are updated every month.

Wat Ever Family KTV is the only KTV in Cebu with real sounds as accompaniment, such as real acoustic sounds, giving customers the sensation of doing a live concert. Songs can also be recorded and downloaded into a USB so customers can record their own cover album. The dancing disco lights are peculiar because they are influenced by voice recognition. When the group…
