Mr. & Ms. Body Heat Model Search


For the benefit of all, I would like to announce that I have been a Rotarian since August 19, 2009. I am a member of Rotary Club of Makati Northeast, District 3830. I am proud to be one. For the record, I have been so active. And it is fun and exciting!

 

Last Friday, 11 June 2010, the Rotary Clubs of Saint Nicolas and Makati Cristo Rey sponsored the Body Heat Model Search, themed Psal Masque. It was held in Megaworld Information Center, McKinley Hills, The Fort, Taguig City. It is for the benefit of the Parañaque River Rehabilitation Project and Upliftment Programs for Underprivileged Communities. Well, this is just one of the fund resources that we initiate. We usually dish out funds from our own pockets.

 

I was one of the honored guests. Along with me were fellow Rotarians and some celebrities who were picked as judges. Namely, Bangs Garcia – star of ABS-CBN Soap Magkano ang Iyong Dangal, Maryo De Los Reyes – film Director, Mama Rene Salud – Fashion Designer, Joel Mendez – Cosmetic Surgeon. I also would like to mention a good friend, Jaime V. Acosta, Founder and CEO of PSALMSTRE Enterprises, Inc, which offers Placenta products. He also featured my Philippine Fashion Week 2010 shots in Showbiz Sosyal magazine.

Photo Shoot Day 3


March 12

The last day of the thrill. By this time, I had a privilege to spend lunch with the bishop of the diocese, Bp. Arturo M. Bastes, S.V.D., Coadjutor Bishop of Sorsogon, along with some other priests. I also visited major seminary, home of the clergy, and minor seminary. The minor and major seminaries are my mother schools.

Photo Shoot Day 2


March 11

For thrill seekers and mountaineers, here’s something for you to explore! Why not trek a river and picnic at Bayugin Falls? A 20-minute tricycle ride from the town of Bulusan to Brgy. San Francisco. Then, a 20-minute walk to the falls culminates the hiking. The path was mossy and slippery. A steeply descent to the falls made my knees shake! Haha!!! If you have watched Kingkong, the location looks like its setting.

One hour of shooting. Then, a rain threat made us get back to the base site. There had no cottages to shelter my DSLR. Hehe!!! Along with me, by the way, were Baoy, a local ally, and Anthony, a boy tour guide.

In the afternoon, Baoy and I had a little “spirit.” I got drunk, but still shot the bell fry. I climbed its roof top. Hehe! What if I fell, huh!…Scary… Just look at the photos below how tall it is!

Summer 2009: Hongkong or homebound?


January this year… my friend, an aspiring commercial model, and I agreed to spend a vacation in Hongkong, crossing through Macau and Singapore. We already paid our airfare. Unfortunately, her mom did not permit her for the travel. So, I found it also uncomfortable to travel alone. Well… the airfare was non-transferable, non-refundable. It was already forfeited!… The schedule was supposed to be on March 4-13.

Hmm…Maybe we lost some bucks… But I gained another heartwarming vacation when I visited Sorsogon City then.

So here we go!

As soon as I arrived, I paid homage to Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral. My grandfather-priest, Rev. Fr. Lolito Fuentes, was then celebrating the morning daily mass. As far as I am aware, he was tasked to have the cathedral and the convent reconstructed. After the mass, breakfast followed, together with Rev. Frs. Treb Futol and Rowan Gramonte.

Trivia: my deceased father’s name was Pablo and his birthday falls on June 28. The feast day of Sts. Peter and Paul is on June 29. Maybe my granny named him after St. Paul, Spanish of Paul… And!!! My name is Paul!!! But I am not junior, huh! Haha… Hmm, so no wonder my heart is close to this diocese!

Calling all Sorsogon devotees both local and abroad, your diocesan center of praise is in need of financial support. It is almost more than a year and the buildings are not even half-finished.

Come again and follow my trail from March 10 to 13.

US PRESIDENT OBAMA’S INAUGURAL SPEECH – JANUARY 20, 2009


OBAMA: My fellow citizens:


I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forebears, and true to our founding documents.
