The OneTouch Nation Goes to Bohol

When did you last heard of Alcatel in the mobile arena? Personally, during the Nokia 5110 days. I haven’t heard much of the mobile company in decades but I know they were just on the sidelines offering low to mid range phones. After a hiatus of a couple of years, the French-Chinese venture is off to fresh start with Android powered lineup called Alcatel OneTouch and some of us here in Tagbilaran City, Bohol get to sit down with the company’s Product Marketing Executive, Ms. Ellisha Alino during the press meet up.


Gerarda’s is a classic Filipino-Chinese restaurant located somewhere in Tagbilaran’s roads less traveled.  The place offers a medium range of Filipino, Chinese and fusion with a homely ambiance of a typical Filipino-Chinese home.  The restaurant is a revamped old house, probably ancestral, decked with antiques, pots and Filipino and Chinese decorations.
