A New Flower Blooms! "Panagbenga 2012: the 17th Annual Baguio Flower Festival" launches today @ The Baguio City Hall grounds. Through the years, the Panagbenga festival has steadily become the best avenue where Baguio people can shine and innovate what best depicts their community – with everyone co-owning the festival. Panagbenga: A Kankana-ey (dialect widely used by Cordillerans in the Northern Philippine boondocks, specifically people from the Mountain Province and people from the Northern part of the Benguet Province) term meaning “a season for blossoming; a time for blooming.” More than that, it is that season when the City of Baguio transforms itself from a mere window to Cordilleras, to a vibrant seat of rich ethnic landscape. Festival Highlights YOUR 2011 FESTIVAL GUIDE… As in years past, the Panagbenga is all about expectations and surprises; of having spices of the atypical in the usual, over add-ons that never fail to take anybody’s breath away.

Statement of President Aquino on Manny Pacquiao’s win against Juan Manuel Marquez

Below is official statement of President Aquino on Manny Pacquiao's win against Juan Manuel Marquez: Kaisa ang sambayanang Pilipino, malugod kong binabati si Congressman Manny Pacquiao sa kanyang matagumpay na pagdepensa sa WBO Welterweight belt laban kay Juan Manuel Marquez sa Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Sa kanilang ikatlong paghaharap ni Marquez, muling ipinamalas ni Manny ang tatag at lakas ng Pinoy sa buong mundo. Taos-puso tayong nagpapasalamat kay Manny sa walang-humpay niyang paghahatid ng karangalan para sa bayan. Ang kaniyang disiplina at dedikasyon sa kaniyang larangan ay nagpapatotoong hindi nadadaan sa swerte at hindi umaasa sa tsamba ang taong nais magwagi sa buhay. Pinapatunayan ni Manny na hangga’t handa tayong magpursigi, at manatili tayong nakatutok sa pagkamit ng ating mga pangarap, wala tayong hindi kayang abutin. Kay Manny: Hangad namin ang agarang panunumbalik ng iyong sigla at lakas. Bilang ehemplo ng katatagan ng ating lahi, naway magpatuloy pa ang pagbibigay mo

ABS-CBN’s Official Statement on the Anne Curtis-GMA 7 Issue

Here's is the official statement of ABS-CBN on the Anne Curtis - GMA 7 on USTV issue: We would like to clarify the issues related to the incident at the USTv awards’ launch, where Anne Curtis was invited to perform. The call time for Anne was 7PM and she arrived on time. She was scheduled to sing at 7:30 PM as originally scheduled but due to some reasons, the program was delayed. Because Anne had been waiting for quite some time, the organizers of USTv awards decided to put her spot number after TV5’s presentation and before GMA 7 artists’ number. Unfortunately, she was not able to perform or even greet the crowd because a staff from GMA-7 stopped her. The organizers of the event, who should be the ones making the decisions for the program, failed to control the incident. ABS-CBN understands that such delays and compromises occur during events like the USTv Awards Kick Off Party. During such times, people involved at the event might just have to extend extra patience and considerat

Philippine tourism industry finally united

Representatives from various sectors in tourism expressed renewed confidence in a unified industry as the Tourism Congress wrapped up its two-day membership meeting today with the election of a new Board of Trustees and set of officers. “Your coming together today will guarantee that we will not only compete more effectively than before; we will finally win our fair share of the world’s booming travel market,” Tourism Secretary Ramon R. Jimenez Jr. told some 400 attendees in his keynote speech to open the event. The Tourism Congress is the private-sector consultative body of the Department of Tourism (DOT) as mandated by the Tourism Act of 2009 ( Republic Act No. 9593 ), which has its own Constitution and By-Laws. As resolved during yesterday’s meeting, membership now includes tourism enterprises accredited with the DOT as provided for in the Tourism Act.  Moreover, inasmuch as voting power is vested solely in individual enterprises, members of associations are encouraged to apply for

DepEd urges schools to use Philippine Standard Time

The Department of Education issued DepEd Order Number 86, series of 2011, “Synchronizing with the Philippine Standard Time,” directing all school officials nationwide to synchronize with the Philippine Standard Time (PST) so that all school-based activities are conducted simultaneously. Secretary of Education Armin Luistro said this is an important move because it will add to work efficiency and better time management. “Time is a very precious resource which we tend to take for granted. If we are all guided by the Philippine standard time, then our work will be in sync and we can optimize use of time spent in school,” he explained. To synchronize activities of DepEd to the school level, all offices are directed to set all clocks inside offices and school properties including time recording devices to match the PST established by the Department of Science and Technology through the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). The time in hours,

Instead of feeling low, Helena opted to take the reigns and live her remaining months to the fullest. To be sure she got everything covered, Helena made a bucket list of things she wants to do before she dies such as having a make-over, travelling to a different country, and even dating a really gorgeous guy. The she meets William, who is a smart, intelligent business man.  William may seem fulfilled with his life, but he is a wounded man deep inside. As the two accidentally meet in Japan, will they be

GMA Network Statement versus Anne Curtis

Here is GMA's official statement on the USTv Students' Choice Awards Kick-Off incident: Prior to the event, network representatives had been briefed by the organizers/UST about the sequence of the programme. This was to be the basis for arranging our artists' schedules and determining their call time for the event. Based on the schedule, GMA artists were supposed to perform at 7 pm. Our talents were at the venue as early as 5 pm. Last-minute insertion of ABS-CBN's Banana Split cast in the programme however further pushed back the schedule. Shortly before GMA's number, GMA representatives confirmed the programme sequence with organizers. We were told that the Kapuso artists would be next. GMA was not aware nor informed by the organizers in any prior meeting that Anne Curtis will be part of the program. When the GMA artists were about to go on stage, Anne Curtis, her handler and a student organizer approached a GMA representative to ask if she could go on stage first.
