China Business Philippines - 10 August 2009, Monday


When you condone tyranny you share in its corruption and its lowliness.

Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino

Ms Shane Valeroso

Excerpts of Ms Valeroso's comments:

It is spread out so one needs to scroll the page up & down before reading everything. The font should also be more reader friendly, such as Arial. Lines should be justified for a sleeker look. Articles chosen are interesting but they should be spaced in such a way that the picture is near the article.


Winner of P500 worth of gift certificates to Mang Inasal.

Mr Immanuel Jay Avelino

Excerpts of Mr Avelino's comments:

The newsletter has a lot of unused white spaces. Place feature articles on just one side instead of the main article in the middle and "Lifestyle Link" at the other end. Create a news bank so we can retrieve past features.

We will be in touch via e-mail to ask you where we can deliver your prize.
