Congratulations to the team of Tito Johnny Serrano of Summerside Grill for ruling this year’s golfest.

Here’s the funny thing. I brought my wife Marj and sister-in-law Rosemary to the Summerside Grill for a buffet meal and had a chit chat with the owner, Tita Lix, Tito Johnny’s loving wife. We talked about the golf tournament and Tita Lix was just wishing that her husband will have a great time golfing and said “sana mag champion din sila ‘to”. Naging champion nga! Hahahaha.

What about Philippine Media Association of Alberta president Nicky Gocuan?
