how shocking. first photos, then now content
These were the words posted by Noemi in my facebook account. It’s true. I am already used to photo stealing issues left and right but this time it’s something new and something I wasn’t expecting. Early this year, it was Panay News, now its The Freeman of Cebu/philstar.com
The Freeman, a Cebu-based newspaper owned by the third largest broadsheet The Philippine Star has published an article where parts of it were actually grabbed from my old post without permission or even citing my blog as the source of information. The same article was also published in the Philippine Star Website.
In the newspaper version entitled “The quest for the perfect pasalubong” published last May 16, 2009, news writer Oliver Victor B. Amoroso wrote:
Being the capital of the sugar-producing province of Negros Occidental, do you know that Bacolod still has a secret only a few know? It’s Calea’s cakes. The cake shop first opened its doors beside the L’ Fisher Hotel in Lacson Street. In no time, word spread out like wildfire. Loyal patrons immediately grew in number; thus, the need for a larger space. Calea then opened their second store at the Robinson’s Place in Mandalagan, Bacolod City. And just recently, they also opened their third branch at the East Block, along the Circumferential Road. So what’s with Calea, anyway? It’s one of a kind. No Metro Manila cake shop could ever beat the cakes of Calea. And their cakes are cheaper, too (pegged between Php50-65 per slice)! My personal favorites are the cheesecake and the lemon torte cake. So when you get a chance to visit Bacolod City, never dare miss the cakes of Calea.
Others: Piaya and Barquillos (BongBongs); Barquiron and Galletas (Sugarlandia); Napoleones (Roli’s and Pendy’s); and Half Moon (Pendy’s).
Compare it with my old post dated October 2006 here

You be the judge. Tama ba ang ginawa ng Philstar.com and Cebu’s Freeman newspaper?
