Corregidor Island rebrand to higher heights of tourism.

Heart sign from the women's of Corregidor Now
The Corregidor Foundation (CFI), the Department of Tourism (DOT) thru its marketing arm, The Tourism Promotions Board, and the Tourism Infrastructure and Economic Zone Authority (TIEZA) recently unveiled a new campaign for the historical island valor of Corregidor, along with a new logo targeting a wide range of audience, all aim to relive history and experience the islands various attractions.

Corregidor Now under its Chief Operating Officer, former Undersecretary of DOT Cynthia Carreon spearheads this campaign to attract more visitors, to deliver a stronger and unified voice and bring it to higher heights of tourism.

During its official launch at the Taft Hall of Conrad Hotel last July 4, 2019, Carreon divulge all major plans base on the masterplan for Corregidor, some of that are the breakwater project, the Cavite-Bataan Bridge, the South Pier construction on the island and a lot more.

Carreon admits that she is in talks with a lot of investors that wish to do business on the island, and part of the campaign is to look for more and encourage them to make it an ultimate destination. Among her ideas that she wishes somebody would look and study are having water taxis that can ferry guests at any time going and back to Corregidor.  Only 20% of the island develops, and the rest still keeps the way it was back then.

“The Americans invested $220, Millon, they have a golf course, duty-free, they have everything movie house, tunnel, everything you can think of they have that in Corregidor, swimming pool, basketball court, that’s what we want to do, bring back all that things,” Carreon said.

The TEIZA masterplan has a total of P12 million allocation and hopefully can be implemented soon including the power source plant and water system.  As per Carreon, the foundation is open to all investors as of now, send them a proposal and they will study it along with the board of the foundation, once ok they will request you for a formal presentation and gladly welcome you on the island.

Tourism Promotions Board Chief Operating Officer Venus Tan believes in the potential of Corregidor, they already plan some events to hold there someday, and with its new campaign, she sees a more drive for the younger crowd to visit Corregidor.

“With our new marketing direction, we look at history as part of the interest that will drive tourists in the Philippines, and to me, history will play a huge role in that, we are planning to do a lot of activities once the infrastructure is in place. We are looking at bringing sailing at Corregidor, we should start looking at events that we can do in the Corregidor.” Tan said.
Corregidor Island in Cavite Province is one of the nearest historical islands in Metro Manila, from a ferry in Seaside Terminal in Pasay City you can enjoy the historical site like the Japanese Garden of Peace, Filipino Heroes Memorial, Malinta Tunnel and Lorcha Dock. Swimming, fishing, and kayaking are some activities you can do in Corregidor.

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…
