Because Daphne Tania Molenaar, our candidate for the Miss World Philippines 2012 is 17 years old and hails from “The City of Smiles,” I prepared a list of 17 things you shoul know about Bacolod. Some of this things you might know already but I hope you would still get a point or two. Read on.
The Miss World Philippines 2012 fever is on! I’m here now in my room at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Hotel, thanks to Agoda.com and TV 5. Just checked in and let me just say that this hotel indeed lives up to up to its high standards. Not only am I watching the beauty pageant live but I’m also staying in this prestigious hotel. The level of comfort they’re offering here are in more ways than one.
The Universe loves me – scratch that – this time I’ve proven that the World loves me! Why? Because I got the good fortune of being the Miss World Philippines Regional Blogger Correspondent! And do you know what’s better than that? I get to interview the family of one of the prettiest contestants and get to know her more. I am so privileged to be able to support Miss World Philippines Candidate #15: Daphne Tanya L. Molenaar!
After typhoon Ondoy ravaged Manila last week, the Singles for Christ still decided to not postpone the scheduled Oct. 2-4 regional conference which was held at Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. The conference’s theme was “The Christ Pursuit.”
Paradiso Beach Resort is located at Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. This was the venue of the Singles for Christ Regional Conference – Western Visayas. Here are some photos I took of the resort – when it wasn’t raining. And this is also my first attempt at editing photos so please bear with the ‘greenness.’
This post is once again long overdue. Last weekend September 5th-7th, Tim, my brother Rino John and I once again went to Kabankalan and Bacolod. We attended Alex’s birthday. Alex is Tim’s nephew. We had so much fun! Alex now likes me. The first time that I went there he kinda didn’t. Lol. I got to meet Tim’s brother and brother in law for the first time too and they were really nice.
If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog you’ll know that I am an avid listener of reggae music and I am one of Bob Marley’s millions of fans. Reggae music makes me groove to it. Reggae music helps me chill and relax. So when Tim shared with me a song from his phone I was immediately curious as to who sang it and what the title of the song is. The beat is great and only after I listened to the lyrics well and after Tim told me did I knew that it was the reggae version of the Lasallian Alma Mater Hymn.
I have been wanting to meet fellow bloggers ever since I became a member of IloiloBloggers.com. And last Saturday – July 4th at the Casino Filipino PAGCOR Bacolod I was able to meet my fellow Ilonggo bloggers! And not only that – we got to network with other bloggers from Bacolod and the Negros Island. Add to that meeting Ms. Janette Toral in person! The event we attended was the DigitalFilipino Club & Bloggers Meet-Up which was hosted by Casino Filipino PAGCOR Bacolod. Obviously it’s the first bloggers networking event I have attended so I was curious what the turn out would be. It was a huge success because Casino Filipino Bacolod provided us with a delicious dinner, beer and an awesome band! Of course the freebies was one of the best parts of the night. Most of us were lucky to bring home cool stuffs given away by PAGCOR and some of us won in the raffle too. We also got to learn about the current status of the Philippine e-commerce and the blogosphere from Ms. Janette Toral. Some online social network users and business owners attended as well to learn a thing or two about blogging from the seasoned bloggers and SEO professionals. Hope they learned something from the event and be inspired to make a blog of their own too!
