2 million devotees and revelers
Two million people spilled into Cebu City streets on January 21, 2018, despite the rain, to experience the 10-hour spectacle of colorful costumes, floats, higantes, puppeteers, an overpowering beat, and dancing dedicated to the Child Jesus called the Sinulog festival.
On one hand, this is the grandest festival of all Philippine festivals on every third Sunday of January.

Family Enterprise Excellence Conference today
Some 80 percent of businesses in the Philippines are family enterprises. But while Filipino entrepreneurs build family businesses to 1) build the family wealth and 2) leave a lasting legacy, most are small operations while 10 percent never go beyond the third generation.
Question: how do we grow beyond small? How can we build a legacy that lasts several generations?
To help family businesses, the Premier Family Business Consulting (PFBC) initiated the Family Enterprise Excellence Conference (FEEC).

PRworks vow since 2002
The 16thcentury Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño overflowed with thousands of devotees attending the last scheduled Friday mass last January 6, 2012.
This was the second day of the nine-day novena before the celebration of the feast of Senyor Sto. Niño (The Holy Child Jesus) and the Sinulog Festival on January 15, 2012.
"Viva Pit Senyor!" The assembly loudly chanted as the mass ended and the swarm of church-goers headed towards the exit.
After almost an hour, the church seemed completely empty except for the staff of PRworks Inc.
