THIS weekend, all roads lead to the queen city of southern Negros Occidental as Kabankalanons celebrate the highlights of the 39th Sinulog sa Kabankalan in honor of Señor Sto. Niño.
Kabankalan City is considered next to Bacolod City in terms of economic progress and development. Commerce and tourism are two of its strongest industries. Kabankalan is one of the cleanest cities in the Philippines.
Big credit goes to Mayor Isidro Zayco for his excellent management of the city. It was during his first term as mayor of then Kabankalan town when it became progressive, leading it to become a city. Zayco was also its first city mayor.
Last Wednesday, a fashion exhibit was opened to the public which featured the gowns and cocktails creations of talented fashion designers.
From Bacolod are top designers John John Ditching and Tony de Ramos, young designers John Rondain, Steve Genzola and Chino Christophers, and budding designer Edwin Benitez. Young designers from Iloilo are Joe infante and Daryl Amar.
One of the new events for this year's Sinulog sa Kabankalan is the Sinulog Fashion Weekend, featuring 12 beautiful and handsome models from the cities of Bacolod and Kabankalan.
They will be dressed up by our local fashion designers. The grand fashion show will be held tomorrow, Jan. 17, at 4 p.m. at the Gaisano Grand Mall Kabankalan.
This event is spearheaded by MWAH Models Bacolod and is supported by the Kabankalan City Government and the Sinulog Foundation, with the help of Gaisano Grand Mall.
Let us live in style. Viva, Señor Sto. Niño!
