ABOUT THE BLOGGER - Rome Nicolas


Born as Romeo Nicolas Bonsocan, I decided to drop my last name and not to affiliate myself with Juliet to create my own mark online.

Digital Media Strategist at Shopcast.PH by day; blogger at ZUProme Lifestyle by night. Just check out my social media footprint for more information about me. I tend not to be redundant.

ABOUT THE BLOG - ZUProme Bisaya

Why is this blog called ZUProme?


ZUP /pronounced as 'zap'/ is from the phrase 'what's up!' when meeting a friend. You, my reader, is my friend. I appreciate your effort to visit my About page. ROME, well, it doesn't refer to a country.

Why is this blog named ZUProme Bisaya?


ZUProme is too personal. I wanted to add a level of community to it and thought that maybe adding Bisaya will help me brand it as Cebu Lifestyle Blog.

What topics will this blog talk about?


I write about Cebu Culture & Arts, that's for certain. I'm passionate in promoting local products and endeavors for the Cebuano community. If you are a Cebuano pride, we can surely work together.

This blog is dual lingual, too. You can read English and Cebuano / Binisaya articles wherein most of the one written in the local tongue are published in Bisaya Magasin, the weekly Cebuano publication of Manila Bulletin.

I appreciate and would love to be an ambassador of anything proud Cebuano. I want to spread and leave a virtual footprint of the Tatak Bisaya culture.

Have you been to Cebu City? The Queen City of the South is the one of the most popular cities in the Philippines along Manila and Boracay.

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

#BalakPaMore: Cebuano Poetry in Random Corners of Cebu

Do you know where’s the Capital City of Cebuano Poetry? With no doubt in mind, it’s Cebu. Unofficially, of course.
For the past few weeks, Cebu City has been filled with Cebuano poems locally called as balak being posted in random corners like the street walls, electric posts, skywalk, and other public places!
Here are some places that Cebuano poems were posted:

1. Water Drum

This poem of Melquiadito Allego, BATHALAD (a Cebuano literary community) founder, is posted in of one of the most obscure places in Cebu City. Do you find this romantic in any sense?

This artwork of Marjorie Evasco is sitting on an abandoned tired somewhere in Lahug. Seeing this will prove that poetry is indeed becoming part of our society!
