Miss Tourism World Philippines aims to set world record.



SOUND Ambitious, but organizers of  Miss Tourism World Philippines (MTWP) are determine to set four world records in their coronation night on Sept 23, 2014 at SM MOA Arena.  According to Bernard Go, President and CEO of MTWP, these records are: the most numbered of candidates in a pageant; largest indoor pageant; most number of crowns given in a pageant; and most number of National Costume wear in a pageant. But this is not for Guinness, the said record is intended for RecordSetter, a 2008 record database that start in Las Vegas and in Los Angeles,  USA.

Last Aug 2 we were invited to the MTWP Headquarters at Don Chino Roces Avenue in Makati to witness the launching of the pageant and of course meet some of the candidates.  In the said event we were informed that they have oriented the candidates as well as their respective handlers to sell 200 pieces of tickets in order not to be deprive supporters during the coronation night. It was emphasized that the venue is a 20, 000 seating capacity. They also announce during the program that they will bring all the official candidates to US to do modelling shows (all-expenses paid including visa processing). Present during the said event are Jose Orlando Ruiz, Strategic Marketing Director, DarnaUmayan, Project Director of Miss Teen Philippines USA&Mrs.PhilippinesUSA, who will serve as the partner of MTWP in the US. Rea Lazo, reigning Mrs.Philippines USA, and Cristito Velasco, Regional Director for Central Luzon of MTWP.

During interview, Go clarified their announcement to the candidates. Go Said that they are not requiring the candidates to sell tickets but they are simply obligating them to do market tickets for the pageant. This, the organizers wish, through the help of each candidate's local government which they are representing.  Go clarified that selling of  tickets is not mandatory.  The US trip, Go said,  will happen after the pageant. Candidates will do some modelling show like showcasing their National costumes. The pageant also aims to give livelihood training for the winners and non-winners.

As of launching date, MTWP has 179 candidates and they are targeting 250 beautiful Filipina to compose the batch this year. The winner will get P300, 000 cash prize and a crown, and the nine other titles will each receive P30, 000 cash and a crown as well.  MWTP is endorsed by Department of Tourism and Department of Interior and Local Government.


According to its website, MWTP aims to gain worldwide attention through its projects which aims specifically to uplift the living of the Filipino as it strengthens the relationship of the Philippines with other counties and promote tourism through its many activities.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
