The Mandaue Chamber of Commerce and Industry is once more fortunate to have PLDT as its partner in its major activities this year, particularly the Mandaue Business Month in August. That we are here in this event especially for the valued clients of PLDT shows the kind of relationship these two organizations have for each other. And since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, perhaps we can have a huge group hug later to show our love for each other.
Tonight’s special treat concerns the Chinese philosophical system of Feng Shui. It is something that perhaps some of you are already ardent practitioners of. Or for some, it is something you always wanted to know about, but were just too shy or wary to ask. Or even for some, it is something that is taboo because of your religious beliefs.
