When was the last time you picked up a newspaper and had someone reach out to you in a simple 600-word front-page article? We aren’t trying to make history or anything, but today happens to be that day.
In your life, have you ever wanted to announce, advertise, promote, give a shout out, or semi-anonymously share something with the community without having to post it somewhere like the internet? Well, you’re not alone. In today’s world, there really hasn’t been a local place for you to consider as a possible vessel for your own voice.
You have to wonder if technology has gotten so out of hand that people cannot write things down across a table from one another and put them in a simple printed article for the masses. Having a conversation in person is still the very best form of communication, and we want to hear your thoughts and stories so that we can perhaps share it with the local community.
At the same time, we are interested in learning more about our readers as well. What do you do for a living? Where are you from originally? Do you have any thoughts about the future of this area? What are we missing, and how could we make this newspaper better for you or your business? What kind of information would you find useful? Your feedback is important because there is always room for improvement. We are definitely open to new ideas.
If you have a spare moment, swing by the office and give us a chat. Relax on the couch for a few while sipping on a fine shot of Italian espresso to get your day going. As long as you have something worthwhile to say, heck, why not?
The HTH HQ is a relatively cozy environment with quiet music, ice-cold air-conditioning, comfortable seating, amazing coffee, and one of the cutest receptionists in all of Central Luzon. You’d be surprised!
We carry unused sets of past copies of our newspaper in case you want to take them back to your home or office and get caught up or just kill some time. We don’t cover everything, but you’ll be able to see a fraction of the highlights and lowlights of what’s been happening in the area while you’ve been away. You can plan your next restaurant visit, or take a trip somewhere if the mood strikes you after reading 6-months of our stuff. Speaking of taking a trip - if you plan to move or leave the area altogether, consider stopping by to sell your stuff or get some paper to protect your fragile items while they are in transit. We recycle all of our circulated back copies.
Harry The Horse is also giving back to the community with some charitable work, by creating a simple origami and paper mache arts and crafts day for children at local schools starting this October (see the story on page 6 for more details and please, get involved!)
Our quaint headquarters is located at the corner of Malabanias Road and Bonifacio Street, in between the Petron Station and Hensonville, inside the NT Realty Compound. There is always plenty of parking available, and you won’t have to dodge any trikes or jeepneys to get inside our door. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. We are also open by appointment outside normal business hours upon request. When you’re coming down the road look for the big red sign! (See page 25 for a map to our office and more contact details.)
Last but not least if you hadn’t noticed, to the left of this article there is a rather large horse head image staring you in the face. This happens to be an exact copy of the signage that will soon be hanging on Malabanias Road. Look for it when you’re out next time and we look forward to meeting you!
