Bohol's Roving Eye of Bohol Chronicle Turns Two

Who would have thought that my lifestyle column in Bohol Chronicle would be marking its second year anniversary tomorrow, July 27? 

Aptly named  with the double entendre "Bohol's Roving Eye", the whole- page column debuted on July 27, 2014. 

What better date for its launch than the climactic finale of the 2014 Bohol Sandugo Festival! 

The column has been there to chronicle Bohol’s biggest happenings during the week and has taken its readers to the most captivating places in town and updated you with the goings on in the entertainment, events, arts & culture scene in the province. In between, readers  got ringside tickets to the hottest society events & milestones.

In between, there were features on Bohol’s upstarts & the beautiful & handsome faces that made heads turn & tongues wag.

 as suggested by Deo Guden, a different masthead every month
Your Roving Eye would like to thank not only Sir Peter and Ma’am Sonieta for the chance to be part of a 62 year old institution but also to Bohol Chronicle’s dear readers for the trust, the positive feedback & the patronage!

Now on to the third year and beyond! Cheers!
