our old homepage
TATAY PEPE’S THE WEBSITE:
We started going live online not a year ago and here we are making some huge change from a static website (purely a homepage for the Tatay Pepe’s Restobar) into this- a homepage con blog con e-zine!
Really, it’s only a matter of time when we recreate and redesign the entire website!
One of the owners is a ‘dedicated’ blogger maintaining 3 blogs plus has some other affiliations with undisclosed sites! The other is helping out greatly and may be lured one day into the world of blogging!
The old homepage really looked “OLD” already and we were just getting sick looking at it!
Goodness, how we worked hard on this layout to make it at least decent and something the theme creator would be happy about (we hope!). The theme “Artemia” is just wonderful but a real pain to install and tweak. But it’s not the designer’s fault! Oh no. It was all entirely ours, given that we don’t have ANY knowledge on HTML and CSS. Just looking at the codes was enough to give us major headaches and days and days of frustrations.
We refuse to surrender!
So here we are with the new site. We hope you like this new site because we just love it! LOL. Explore the different pages. Leave a note. Give us your suggestions. We’d love to hear from you!
The bar was born on September 10, 2001. It coincided with the birthday of the co-owner’s Mom and that was some big celebration! A restobar blessing and a birthday party! Good friends were there. The whole ‘she-bang’. Truly a happy time!
Yet following the day after, we were at the bar in almost the exact time of our merry-making when the fateful 9-11-01 terrorist attack in the United States occurred. We were shocked and devastated. We couldn’t believe a ‘superpower’ like America could be hurt like that…
We move on. Everyone moved on.
It is a hard and long journey for us. There were times when we wanted to give up. In a small town like General Santos City, Philippines- it’s not always easy for businesses. We’ve seen establishments rise and fall. We’ve seen them come and go. There are countless days when we would question what we’re doing in a risky and often dangerous world of restobars dealing with customers who have had too much to drink or who refuse to pay or handling guys who enjoys brawling! Yay!
We refuse to surrender.
So here we are, still standing. We are going to be 7 years old this September 2008! *Applause. Applause…*
