If you watch CNN, you might have seen our kailiyan Kathy Quiaño reporting from Indonesia. If you don’t watch CNN, well, you’re lucky because the above video shows us Kathy in action. Her report about the flooding in Jakarta starts at the 3:18th mark.
Meanwhile, Liza Agoot-Galao has a story on Cathy at the Baguio Midland Courier. Here’s an excerpt:
Mary Kathleen Rea Sonda Quiaño was born and educated in Baguio City. She takes pride in being an Ibaloi coming from a clan in Benguet. Watching and listening to her deliver reports gives me pride as others too, who personally know her, feel the same whenever Kathy comes out on television, not on national TV, but for an international broadcast on the Cable News Network or CNN.
Kathy, while a mixture of Ibaloi and Pangasinense, with her father Ed also coming from Laoac, Pangasinan, claims she is more of an Ibaloi. Her usual attire comes with pointed boots and a printed polo, ready for horseback riding, which she learned to do at age three. She eats “pinikpikan” and joins the “cañao” as well as dances the tayaw with grace.
