Was on my way home early this Sunday morning from an errand when I chanced upon this scene which was causing a mild traffic jam along the National Highway-J.Catolico Avenue Junction. Luckily, a traffic officer (called “blue boy” in this part of the Phils.) was nearby to assess the situation.Gosh! I didn’t know they work […]

Santa’s elves came visiting the 300-or-so patients at the Gen. Santos City Hospital on the last day of 2007 to distribute gift packs from Gaisano Mall of Gensan.

Only a few stars descended from the heavens at last Monday night’s 29th birthday party of People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao at the Family Country Hotel and Convention Center here in GenSan. Compared to his celebration last year when he was still a Kapamilya, I did not see a single GMA-7 bigwig in attendance this time.
Attended the Street Party at the East Asia Royale Hotel Arcade Parking Lot last night, Saturday, December 15th headlined by the hot sexy all-girl Pinay group MOCHA. It was I guess, ONE of the most attended street parties I have been to this year. Sponsored by Perfecom and SAMSUNG, it definitely raised the bar for the next party events in Gensan.
