AboitizLand joins Gabii Sa Kabilin 2012




The overused word uber is apt here—more than 2500 local and international
visitors, more than 30 Cebu trivias, more than 20 magnificent images of
Cebu’s heritage sites, more than 15 delicacies -- AboitizLand Inc. presents
one of the biggest heritage celebrations through its participation in Gabii
Sa Kabilin 2012 dubbed as Handurawan Sa Karaang Sugbo.

With the Heritage of Cebu Monument as its backdrop, AboitizLand will
transform Mabini Street on May 25 to showcase the awe-inspiring Kabag-uhan:
Now and Then Photo Exhibit Year 2. Old pictures of heritage sites from the
collection of the AboitizLand’s CEO Andoni Aboitiz and Lucy Urgello-Miller
will be place alongside its then pictures, the winning images of 2011 and
2012 Kabag-uhan: Now and Then Photo Contest.

The amusing Cebu Trivia Night opens at 7 pm challenging triviaholics’
knowledge of their beloved Queen City of the South. The grueling battle of
wits is open to all Cebuanos and Cebuanos at heart.

The AboitizLand Heritage Show will turn the evening into an amazing
experience in entertainment and storytelling as it did last year, even
more. Ka Bino Guerrero, popular tour interpreter, will be telling the
stories highlighting one of Cebu’s greatest assets – the rich history of
Cebu’s streetscapes and landscapes.

Ka Bino is Cebu’s equivalent of Manila’s maverick Carlos Celdran. He will
conduct a “sitting tour” as he reveals old Sugbo’s streetscapes and famous
heritage points.

To cap off a fine evening relishing the past, savoring the present and
looking forward to the future, guests will say ‘lami’ at the Food Festival
where various communities are offering a splendid gastronomic treat.

AboitizLand’s participation in Gabii Sa Kabilin 2012 supports the company’s
effort to nurture the Cebuano culture and heritage. Being in Gabii sa
Kabilin is the company’s contribution to the enrichment of culture and the
arts, consistent with its brand promise of developing nurturing and
assuring communities.

An annual event of the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc.’s Cultural Heritage
Program, Gabii sa Kabilin is a recipient of the Public Relations Society of
the Philippines’s Anvil Award of Merit for Public Relations
Program—Sustained Basis: Arts and Culture/Heritage/Tourism.

Eyes Yoga - How To



Do you spend your days staring at a computer screen?

If you do, you probably know how draining and tiring it can be to your entire body, not just your eyes.

Here is a natural approach that you may find helpful to relieve or prevent eye strain.


Sit at the edge of your chair with your back straight. Close your eyes and place the palm of each hand over an eye, so you feel your palms warming your eyes.

Remove your hands, keeping your eyes closed. Inhale deeply through your nose. Exhale and let your head drop forward then rotate it from side to side. Shrug your shoulders, making circles with them forward and backward.

Close your eyes tightly and lift and tighten your shoulders as much as you can. Hold for a few seconds and then exhale, suddenly releasing your shoulders and opening your eyes. Repeat this several times.



Blink repeatedly, fluttering your eyelids until your eyes become moist. Repeat this several times.

Breathing naturally, focus on an object far away from you for about half a minute. Try to maintain your focus, then blink rapidly several times. Then focus on a nearby object for about 15 seconds. Try to maintain your focus, then blink rapidly several times.


Once you've memorized the routine, you can easily do it throughout the day.
