SEVEN weeks from now, Region 6 will boast of being the 5th hub of Cebu Pacific Air as the airline tags the Iloilo International Airport as an international facility. November 8 will be the inaugural flight to and from Hong Kong. The next day will bring the Ilonggos to Singapore where the famous Marina Bay Sands, Sentosa are sights to enjoy.


By next month the Silay Bacolod National Airport will welcome Mindanaoans as the route to and from Cagayan de Oro commences.



Recently the airline along with the office of Department of Tourism Region 6 brought together the tourism groups of the Singapore Tourism Board, Hong Kong Tourism Board, General Santos, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban along with major travel agencies like Rajah Tours and more, under one roof at Amigo Terrace Hotel.


Corporate people and media faces were treated to a dinner, but the exciting part was when Cebu Pacific Air gave out door prizes like free trips to Hong Kong and Singapore and to Gensan, Palawan and Tacloban and giveaway gifts from different tourism units.


Last weekend I met a lady golfer who owns a product being sold in the market. The product is the SOURSOP Guayabano Juice tagged as GPower. Indeed the concentrate is natural and it is no doubt it has been known as a very healthy body supplement that could prevent increase of cancer cells growth. This will be available soon in the market in Western Visayas.


Recently the showroom of BMW cars was inaugurated and we were there upon invitation of BMW’s Gil Balderas. Faces we smiled at in that occasion were Tito Cardo Yanson, sister Ceres Yanson-Magadia, Felipe Garcia, Lito Aves, Newks Puentevella, Jomarie Golez, Roland Tan, Raymond J. Dabao, Johnny Uy, and Nestor Gabalda among others. Mayor Doc Eric Saratan of Talisay City was humbly joining the crowd along with the BMW officials. Of course, everyone noticed morena, fine-skinned Isabel Daza, daughter of beauty queen Gloria Diaz.

Last time a passenger asked why the cell phone number of Supercat Terminal is not answering. The nice lady in the seat assignment counter informed him that the phone got lost. Well, if it got lost, are you not buying one for the convenience of your passengers, insisted the passenger. Maybe you should ask SUN Cellular to sponsor one unit if there is no budget, he continued.*
