Here’s a video of ABS-CBN broadcaster Bernadette Sembrano learning to dance an Igorot courtship dance. She did well, IMHO. Bernadette is the daughter of Baguio City Councilor Elaine Sembrano. [h/t Sandati]
Also, the Philippine Entertainment Portal is reporting that Bernadette just got hitched to Emilio Aguinaldo IV, grandson of THE Emilio Aguinaldo.
Can you imagine the impact if seemingly simple projects like this one are implemented by government authorities at a much bigger scale. There would be much lesser garbage and more livelihood opportunities. If small organizations can do it, I don’t see any reason why government cannot do it as well.
Let’s give the Women’s Livelihood Organization of Imelda Village in Baguio our Boon Award for their worthwhile project. Creating livelihood opportunities for 22 people is no joke and is a big accomplishment which deserves recognition. Cheers to you women of Imelda Village.
How does a person become an extortionist? When she was a kid, did this woman say, “When I grow up, I’d like to be an extortionist.” Or did she wake up one day, saw that the rice pot was empty and decided there and then to be an extortionist? Or was it a slippery slope, maybe she initially did it to test if she can get away with it and it developed into a habit?
Good thing authorities finally caught up with Rowena Bauit Caronan a.k.a. Michelle Lueng a.k.a Michelle de Guzman. She will be facing charges of estafa and usurpation of authority.
Congratulations to Kevin Balmonte of SLU for landing in the top five of the First Stranger Festival. This is the video he made. I like it. It’s simple and creative and brought the point across. It would have been more compelling though if he used younger looking kids.
Here’s the Inquirer report on Kevin: A 19-year-old senior of Saint Louis University landed in the top five of the First Stranger Festival in Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam, a world video art event for children’s rights held July 3 to 5.
