Events organizer, blogger in La Union connects ASEAN on culture-themed eventsby Miriam Aquino of PIA

Events organizer, blogger in La Union connects ASEAN to culture-themed events
April 10, 2017 Miriam P. Aquino

SAN FERNANDO CITY, April 10 (PIA) –An event organizer needs creative, unique, and rich ideas to survive the events industry.

Erwin Bautista, one of the most successful freelance event organizers in La Union, said he always maintains the promotion of culture in all his handled events.

Bautista is one of the participants to the recent launching of an information kiosk at the CSI Mall here. The launching was part of the activities of the Philippine Information Agency to promote the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to the public.

Relating the ASEAN advocacy to his field, he emphasized that in all his wedding receptions, he sees to it that the customs and traditions of the Ilokano are still being practiced.

“The ‘pasabit’ and the dance with ‘abalayan’ or in-laws are part of the customs we have grown up with that we should never forget,” Bautista said.

He added, “Incorporating Filipino culture with events in our present time can help refresh or revive the idea to the younger or present generation which they could also pass on to the future generations.”

For this year’s hosting of ASEAN, whenever delegates from ASEAN region would come to the country and probably to the province, they will be able to see these customs and traditions still being practiced and surely, they will learn to appreciate it.

As an example, Bautista said the abalayan dance showcases not just the unison of the couples but also of two families getting to know each other and uniting as one.

This, he said, strengthens the tradition of Filipinos who are very particular when it comes to close-family ties.

“As an event organizer, here in the province and the region, I always incorporate that because I know it would come a long way,” he said.

Bautista, also a blogger who is popularly known as or Airwind, suggested the utilization of social media in promoting these traditions to the ASEAN region and to the rest of the whole.

“Social media can be a medium for citizens of ASEAN nations to be aware of the existence of our beautiful culture and heritage which may encourage them to visit our place,” he said

Meanwhile, the Philippines’ hosting of ASEAN this year needs support from local governments units.

In La Union, the provincial government recently launched its provincial agri-tourism center, a one-stop shop pasalubong center which could cater to foreign and domestic guests.

Aside from being an event organizer and a blogger, Bautista is also a member of the Association of Tourism Industry and Networks (ATIN) which is a group aimed to promote tourism of the province.

In time for Hoy Week, Bautista shared that ATIN organized a project dubbed “VisitKleta Iglesia”, a luminous fun ride and “Spiritual Journey for a Cause” in La Union on Sunday, April 9.

Apart from upholding the traditional “Bisita Iglesia”, the event promoted health and wellness since participants visited seven churches using their well-lit bicycle, also in support to the Sillag Festival (Festival of Lights) in the province. (JNPD/MPA/PIA-1, La Union)

Miss City of San Fernando 2017 : Pre-Pageant Night

A Beauty queen is not just a girl with the beauty and brains but also someone who is talented.

Last March 12, 2017, the 19 official candidates of the annual search for Miss City of San Fernando 2017 and Miss Barangay 2017 had their talent competition and sponsors’ night at the City of San Fernando, La Union as organized by the City Government of San Fernando and Specialized Trade and Management, Inc.

The 19 ladies presented their talent and also sashayed the runway with outfits from Boardwak and from the collections of Jeffrey Rogador.

Here is my own opinion regarding the performances of the 19 candidates:
1. Camille Era Bulatao, She presented a declamation and she is good at it, her husky voice seems so sexy as well as her pouting lips. Her aura is the classic morena beauty and such a delight to watch her.
2. Kahreen Lou Mondina, She danced like there is no tomorrow, she is the best dancer among all the candidates. Her poise is always at point and her being a great dancer transpired in her moves in the runway.
3. Micamelle Ducusin, She got one of the strongest presence with her loud voice and strong dance performance, her smile is one of her asset. She also did great with her runway skill.
4. Maricar Orque, She looks meek in her dance number but you can’t deny how she looks great with her height. She just needs to keep her momentum and poise in the runway.
5. Jay-mi Reusser, She performed belly dancing and her whistle bait figure was given exposure and she really looks so radiant up in the stage, with her flawless skin, that captivates the audience to cheer for her.
6. Audrey Baniqued, wow, great singer, I always see her as a quiet lady and always had her hair covering half of her face, so her up do is great to enhance her looks and her voice matches her beauty that sums up with a beautiful sight to behold.
7. Alec Alexis Flores, the festival dance she performed is like a celebration of her beauty and feminity, she is one of those lady who captivates the audience with her beauty and wit. She looks great and knows how to sashay on the stage
8. Michelle Gurtiza – a mestiza beauty who looks frail but she can prove you wrong when she is on the stage since she looks so regal and a queen to look at.
9. Cris Doctolero, one of the talented beauty with a performance that doesn’t show her looks but her moves, and she can really move, she can have a great career in doing that actually, the LED dance performance is quite a breath of fresh air, and aside from that, she knows how to strut her stufff and can captivate the audience with her runway skills.
10. Ailyn Grace Mae Santos, the power dance full of energy and maintained a smile throughout the performance, she is one to beat with her talent and wit.
11. Ellaine Loice Pascua, she looks so great and the best hair-do of the night, she performed a Hawaiian dance and she is one of the ladies who do great in the runway as well as she can express her thoughts well.
12. Jonryl Anne Navora, a contemporary dance performance from her and combine a good runway performance, she did a great job during the talent night and if she maintain great work, she is one of the ladies to beat.
13. May Ann Soriano, one of the strongrdt presence of the night, she can be bubbly off the stage but when she is on the stage, she turned a serious competitor and with her height and beauty, she did a great job.
14. Joana Marie Rimando, she is a good singer and her runway skills looks competitive that she really did a great performance for the night.
15. Almira Pimentel, the best performance for the night for me, I so love spoken poetry, since she was able to deliver it with much emotion and focus, she got good runway skills and a beautiful face.
16. Donabelle Erno – she performed a contemporary dance and she did great with her looks and talent, this morena beauty is one of the frontrunner for her unique styling and great runway skills. I know she can deliver well since she is one witty lady.
17. Angelita Soliven – She did a festival dance and her dancing prowess captured the sponsors since she is one of the most awarded candidate showing how sponsors saw the potential in her. Her biggest asset is not just her wit and height and posture but her charm since she got one of the sweetest smile and a beauty that you will love the longer you look at her.
18. Aileen Grace Cabiladas – she did a ballroom dancing and with her good walk and simple beauty, she can be a threat to the crown since she is a fighter and appreciates the tips shared to her.
19. Anne Margareth Sanglay, she did a spray painting as her talent and she seems like someone painting her posture and wit then capture the title. She got one of the best poise with her statuesque feature and just wait when she opens her mouth because she is witty lady.
Special awards from sponsors were also awarded to the following candidates:

Miss Salon Natyn 2017 -#19, Anne Margareth Sanglay
Miss Chowking 2017 – #17, Angelita Soliven
Miss Hyundai 2017 – #19, Anne Margareth Sanglay

To sum it up, the idea of bringing the talent competition in the plaza as well as to award some of the special awards prior to the pageant night is a great idea since the airtime on the pageant night will be lessen but I just hope they will still show clips of the awarding so that the sponsors will still be given exposure. Formerly, talent competition was just presented in the mall where limited audience are present and bringing it in the plaza made the people really a part of the celebration.
It was just kinda sad that the guest performers are good and can carry a tune but the people are wondering who they are but it was great that people are appreciative of them and maybe their road manager can try to be friendlier next time since I know how unfriendly she was towards some of the people. I don’t want to edit this part so her attention can be called and might learn to always be friendly to protect the career of their talents but it was great for Boardwalk to bring One Up and let them perform and be known by the people in this part of our country.

Watch out for the Pageant Night on March 20, 2017, City Plaza, City of San Fernando, La Union.
The pageant is organized by the City Government of San Fernando, La Union under the leadership of Mayor Herminigildo “DONG” Gualberto, Vice Mayor Alfred Ortega, the City Councilors. STRAM, Specialized Trade and Marketing Inc is the production in-charge of the pageant and AirwindZone is one of the sponsors.

Miss City of San Fernando 2017: Beauty boot camp with Ms. Nina Ricci Alagao

 

Miss City of San Fernando 2017 beauty bootcamp with Ms. Nina Ricci Alagao

A Beauty queen is loaded with stuff to do, not just to keep herself beautiful but also to always be on top, alert but till stay pretty and witty at all times.

Nowadays, pageant is not confined with just walking on the ramp with a skimpy swimwear or an elegant gown while remaining calm with a smile on her face.

It is more on how to face the pressure of the question and answer portion with the right articulation of an answer with substance and impact. Pageant nowadays is an extra challenge of the fusion of beauty and brains. The question and answer portion really determines the best candidate worth of the crown and the title.

It is indeed a good thing to prepare a candidate with the wit and beauty combined to be ready to hit the stage.
A candidate should also epitomize the behavior of a friendly and professional lady worth to be the ambassador upon crowning.

Last February 15-16, 2017, the 19 official candidates of the annual search for Miss City of San Fernando 2017 and Miss Barangay 2017 attended a Boot Camp of special training om etiquette, make-up artistry and posture and stance with the Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2000 Ms. Nina Ricci Alagao and renowned fashion designer Jeffrey Rogador. The bootcamp was held at Thunderbird Resort, City of San Fernando, La Union as organized by the City Government of San Fernando and Specialized Trade and Management, Inc.

The ladies were exposed with knowledge and training on catwalk, question and answer and self-styling with hair and make-up that are indeed essentials in a pageant.

The 19 ladies were indeed fast learners as they have done their own styling and make-up for their profile photos and video shoot in some tourist spots like the Lighthouse, the Poro Baywalk and Thunderbird Resort.

So a piece of advice to candidates, enjoy the journey, make friends and do not pressure yourself but when competition comes, the pre-pageant and pageant night, show to them that you are there on the stage worthy of the title and ready to clinch the crown with elegance and grace.

Watch out for the Media Presentation and Talent Competition on March 12, 2017 and on the Pageant Night on March 20, 2017, City Plaza, City of San Fernando, La Union.
The pageant is organized by the City Government of San Fernando, La Union under the leadership of Mayor Herminigildo DONG Gualberto, Vice Mayor Alfred Ortega, the City Councilors. STRAM, Specialized Trade and Marketing Inc is the production in-charge of the pageant and AirwindZone is one of the sponsors.

Mutia ti La Union 2017

IMG_0289.JPG

Mutia ti La Union 2017
March 2, 2017, City Plaza,
City of San Fernando, La Union

On March 2, 2017, the fairest lady of the 19 municipalities and 1 city of the province will be crowned as the Mutia ti La Union 2017
And here is my personal opinion about the ladies based on what I have observed for the past few days of activities, their over-all look during the pre-pageant and on their performance during their municipal pageant.
Agoo, Carina Carino – a classic beauty of a pageant queen who got the toughest role, to duplicate her mom’s achievement and to continue the back to back to back peat in MLU of her municipality. Her charming face is her biggest asset but ready to bloom when she starts talking for she is one intelligent beauty queen.
Aringay, Leslie Diego – the lady with the hot looks, a seductress on the stage ready to charm the judges and audience with her suave moves and looks. I am a fan of her ballroom dancing skills which is evident when she walk with her sexy glides
Bacnotan, Marijo Quillon – she is not your typical beauty queen for her short hair and boyish moves but upon stepping on stage you can see the persona of a feisty lady. She can captivate you with her charming face and gorgeous looks.
Bagulin, Darlene Joy Villaruz – her captivating looks and big asset compensate her height since she may not be tall but looks gorgeous on stage since she got a good body proportion and moviestar looks equipped with a svelte figure and sexy runway skills
Balaoan, Katherine Joy Adona – she is the epitome of a supermodel in the making who conquered the pageant stage for her height and runway skills can bring her to the top if she can perform well just like what she did in Balaoan where she looks so fresh and jolly but so ready to be crowned
Bangar, Roxanne Sanglay – her beautiful face alone can make you fall in love with her, she have the innocent aura and looks shy but on stage she is such a beauty to behold. She is simple but so lovely to look at.
Bauang, Nadine Cabangcla – this lady is full of mystery since you can always see her in a corner reviewing for her lessons but when activities resume, she looks so ready to hit the stage anytime, her aura is somewhat unpredictable and looks “nanlalamon sa stage” which is a threat to the other candidates
Burgos, Jackie Angayen – the lady who can capture your attention when she smile since she looks radiantly beautiful, she is the lady that once you take longer in looking at her, she looks more beautiful.
Caba, April Soliven – the chinita charmer is the one to beat since she is the most ready to be crowned with her height, beauty, wit and runway skills and what is so nice of her is she is so ready to share her skills to the other ladies and her beautiful face is combined with a beautiful heart for her younger sisters in the pageant especially when she shares her killer catwalk skills to them.
Luna, Darlene Caoile – the lady who is the most “kikay”, she is always seen to be jolly and be the darling of the crowd but when activities resume, she is one serious lady who takes in-charge of the task
Naguilian, Junea Mae Junio – her biggest asset is her lovely face and if she will have the same aura just like when she joined Mutya ng Kabataan 2015, then she can easily penetrate the semis.
Pugo, Mica Bantiding – full of character, her beauty is the one you will fall in love as you watch her on stage and sashay on the ramp. She is such an adorable girl.
Rosario, Shaira Dela Rosa – the lady with a charming smile and a flawless skin, that are the stuff that you can first observe when you see her on stage.
City of San Fernando, Alyanna Berline Choo – her lean frame is an advantage for she is tall and her body frame is to die for and one great thing about her is jolly disposition that she brings thus her aura is always full of good vibes and it shows when she is on the stage
San Gabriel, Danica Marzo – her Morena Oriental look combined is a global hit and that makes her stand-out. Another asset is her pouting lips and sexy eyes that makes her looks so gorgeous.
San Juan, Joana Palabay – she has a pretty face and a captivating smile. She always looks sweet and lovely. She was crowned as her municipality’s queen last December 2015 thus she has the longest period to prepare herself to take the crown.
Santol, Princess Ronduen – the lady who is fierce and a catwalk diva who conquers the stage with her presence, her height compliments her sultry looks and modeling skills and it can help her boost her chance to win.
Santo Tomas, Swantel Cruz – her talent and beauty combined, she has the most artistahin look and full of character as well. She knows the proper projection and always on point.
Sudipen, Rosalie Espiritu- the morena lady who got a great smile and a gorgeous body. Her morena looks shows her Filipina beauty and her latest looks deviate from her looks on her previous pageants so it is a refreshing sight of her.
Tubao, Aila Estolas– she got a stunning smile and such a graceful lady who shines on stage.

The representatives of Burgos, Pugo and Tubao are the ladies who will be my first time to watch while I was able to watch the pageants of the other 17 ladies have participated. I was able to watch Agoo, Balaoan, Bauang, Luna, City of San Fernando, San Gabriel, Santol, Santo Tomas and Sudipen in their municipal pageants. I was a judge on the pageants of the followings ladies, Bacnotan, Naguilian. I was able to watch Aringay, Bagulin, Caba and Rosario in other pageants prior to their appointments to represent the said municipalities in this year’s edition of MLU. I was able to watch Bangar and San Juan in other pageants but I missed their municipal pageants. I have observed that they have improved a lot compared to their past pageant exposures and I hope the best for them since it was their dream to be part of the provincial pageant and represent not just themselves but the 19 municipalities and the lone city of La Union.

Watch the pageant night on March 2, 2017 and be a witness who will be crowned as Mutia ti La Union 2017, Mutia ti Turismo and Mutia ti Kalikasan among the 20 lovely candidates.
The pageant is organized by the Provincial Government of La Union with the participation of the 19 municipalities and one city of the province.
