Redvolution Manila 2015

Human immunodeficiency virus infection and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a spread of conditions caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV is transmitted primarily via unprotected sexual intercourse (including anal and oral sex), contaminated blood transfusions, hypodermic needles, and from mother to child during pregnancy, delivery, or breastfeeding.Some bodily fluids, such as saliva and tears, do not transmit HIV.

Since its discovery, AIDS has caused an estimated 36 million deaths worldwide (as of 2012). In 2014 it resulted in about 1.2 million deaths and about 36.9 million people were living with HIV. HIV/AIDS is considered a pandemic—a disease outbreak which is present over a large area and is actively spreading.

Last December 5, 2015 at the MOA concert Grounds, the Redvolution Manila 2015 happened in celebration of World AIDS Awareness Day. The intentions of this event are for the youth's 
(since most of the attendees were teens I presume) awareness to practice safe sex, no to multiple sex partners and
to educate all on the severity of this disease AND an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the "LARGEST HUMAN AWARENESS RIBBON".

The RED RIBBON is a symbol for solidarity with HIV- positive people
 and those living with AIDS

The night was filled with RED since all participants were given red shirt with the Redvolution logo on it.

The festival gathered the best DJs, bands and celebrities in town.

Grateful to be invited in this fair through The Big Difference Communications but arrived super late because we just came in from a Gift Giving event in Tagaytay.

With The Big Difference Communications team ♥

We're all in this together!

We need to make sure that we stop the epidemic... We need to concentrate a lot on prevention - Dr. Glenda Gray

Thank you for visiting my blog! I would love to hear your thoughts . Your comments are always welcome and appreciated!

What's unique at TREE TOP ADVENTURE ?

Tree Top Adventure is the only motorized ziplines and the only motorized Teambuilding facilities in the Philippines located at Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Subic, Zambales and inside Camp John Hay in Baguio City.


Tree Top Adventure is the brainchild of founder Mario Montejo, a Businessman and an Engineer. With the invitation of the Department of Tourism and after visiting the canopy walk in Cagayan de Oro, he wanted to create a venue where people can be one with nature. This is the beginning of Tree Top Adventure.

He used his engineering background to create a unique adventure- the first motorized zipline in the world. Subic, with its virgin forests, abundant flora and fauna and accessibility from Manila was the chosen site for this unique adventure.


Our mission is to become the number one tourist destination in Northern Luzon. To do this, we will utilize our engineering background and technical know how in making Tree Top Adventure exciting, a one of a kind experience, world class and completely safe. VISION Our vision is to provide a venue where one can enjoy nature so that one can have a deeper appreciation and care for nature.


Care for the environment Tree Top Adventure employs a unique "Tree Trunk Clamping Mechanism" where no tree is harmed in the park and is adjusted for the tree's growth. All major trees at the park are supported by cable wires to secure them from strong winds and typhoons. Safety Safety is our top priority. All safety gear and equipment are tested. Tour guides are trained on Standard First Aid, Industrial Rope Access Work and Basic Rope Access Rescue.

1. What's unique at Tree Top Adventure

Motorized Team Building Facility

The Team Building facility is a separate place from the theme park and unlike other venues, at Tree Top Adventure, there is a ready program, in house facilitator and all activities can be measured and controlled. Some activities even have monitors to check who are not following instructions or not a team player. For Team Building, Tree Top offers the only motorized team building facilities in the Philippines in which one will be challenged not just physically but also mentally. A variety of 12 team building activities can be chosen from.

Theme Park

From a zipline that is seated to a free fall from 60 feet above, one can truly appreciate nature at its best while quenching one’s thirst for adrenaline rush.

Updated rates and packages

Roxy, Nikki and Me ♥

Tree Top Adventure has six outdoor activities which offer a different experience for every thrill seekers. If one wants to relax, then, one might try the Canopy Ride, a ride similar to the concept of cable cars.

The Trekking and Skywalk is good for adventurers who just like to walk and appreciate the beauty of nature.

THE CLASSICS : Marco Sison, Hajji Alejandro, Rey Valera and Nonoy Zuñiga in One Special Night ONLY Performance

Mark your calendars for an unforgetabble gathering of four iconic Filipino artists - Marco Sison, Hajji Alejandro, Rey Valera and Nonoy Zuñiga -- together in one stage, one concert, and ONE NIGHT ONLY! "The Classics" brings together this incomparable four gentlemen for an enchanted evening of song, music and dance on December 28, 2015, Monday, 8PM at the Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT), Resorts World Manila.

The original Kilabot ng Kolehiyala (college girls' heartthrob), Alejandro is best remembered for such songs as Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika, Panakip Butas, and Nakapagtataka.

Sison started his singing career after his triumph on a singing contest in Channel 7's noontime variety show " Student Canteen" in the late 70's and early 80's. Being one of the classic balladeers to have captured the true vocal essence of OPM in the '80s, Sison was responsible for the songs My Love Will See You Through [his biggest hit thus far], Si Aida, Si Lorna, o Si Fe, I'll Face Tomorrow, Always and Make Believe.

Rey is a well-known singer, songwriter, music director, film scorer and television host from the Philippines. He wrote and produced songs that were recorded by various singers, most notably Sharon Cuneta. He was a former host of the variety noontime show Pilipinas Win na Win alongside Rico J. Puno, Nonoy Zuniga and Marco Sison. He waxed his first single as a solo singer - songwriter with the song Ako si Superman, which he created supposedly for Rico Puno. His former boss at Vicor Records gave him the opportunity to sing his song and at the same time hired him as one of Vicor's in-house producers. Rey also made songs for other artists such as Rico Puno's Sorry Na, Puwede Ba, Daigdig ng Ala-ala, Geraldine's Pangako; Pol Enriquez'  Ayoko na Sa' Yo and many more. While he made songs for his peers, he made albums for himself such as ;
Naaalala Ka, Rey Valera Vol. 2, Walang Kapalit, Hello, The Rey Valera Christmas Album, Gabay Mo Ako, Rey Valera's Greatest Hits Vol. 1, Rey Valera's Greatest Hits Vol. 2, Pirapirasong Ala ala, Sa Kabila ng Lahat, Kung Sakaling Iibig Muli, FM Ka, AM Ako, Home Sweet Home, Ang Mahalaga, etc. Most of these albums made golds and platinums.

Recently, Vicor Music Corporation, compiled all of Rey Valera's recorded songs in their library in a 4 disc set album entitled, "Walang Kapalit" as part of Vicor's 40-year anniversary.

Zuñiga's singing career spans more than 3 decades, as a folk singer from 1971 to 1975 and then as one of the lead singers of the Family Birth Control Band which performed in the best nightspots and hotels like Philippine Plaza, Holiday Inn and The Manila Hotel from 1975- 1980. All his performances in the US from 1983 to the present are well-acclaimed. He has also performed in Asia including the major cities of Australia, Japan, South Korea, China and New Zealand.

This dream concert will have the four artists dishing out several of their signature pieces. "THE CLASSICS" is presented by Resorts World Manila in cooperation with Redstone Media Production Inc.

Tickets are now available at all TicketWorld, Ticketnet and SM Ticket outlets.

Christmas isn't over yet but I can't contain my excitement. Because I love all his songs. ♥♥♥ 

Baby...I never thought that I could love someone as much as I love you,

I know it's crazy, but it's true.

I never thought that I could need someone as much as I need you,

I love you. - Never Thought , Dan Hill

I don't wanna hear that song again

From the night we first met 
I don't wanna hear you whispering
Things I'd rather forget

I don't wanna look into your eyes

Coz you know what happens next

We'll be making love and then

I'll fall all over again - I Fall All Over Again, Dan Hill

Why do we always hurt the ones we love?


Just when it seems we've finally made it through

Why can't we fly between the eagle and the dove?

Why do we always hurt the ones we love? 

- Why do we always hurt the ones we love?, Dan Hill

If you don't have plans yet on Valentine's Day with a loved one, then this will be a perfect gift and also to rekindle lost romance as "The King of Romance", Dan Hill will perform this Valentine season.

Nominated for a Grammy for Best Male Vocal, winner of a Grammy (as co-producer of "Seduces Me" on Celine Dion's 30 plus million-selling "Falling into You" album), winner of five Juno Awards and the Harold Moon Award (Canadian Lifetime Song Writing Achievement Award), dan has recorded and released multiple gold and platinum albums. His classic hits, such as "Sometimes When We Touch" (closing in on 5 million spins in America alone, and covered by hundreds of artists around the world), "Can't We Try" (#1 Billboard AC Record of the Year), and "Never Thought (That I Could Love)", another #1 AC record, all remain staples of AC radio stations around the world. Dan has also enjoyed consistent success as a behind the scenes' songwriter, his compositions recorded by so many artists spanning so many musical genres that it's, well, incredible. Celine Dion, Britney Spears, 98 Degrees, The Backstreet Boys, Rod Stewart, Donny Osmond, Jennifer Rush and Michael Bolton just to name a few.

Urban Generation : Trendy All the Time

Do you enjoy buying clothes? Me, YES! 
What kind of clothes do you want to wear? 
What is your style? 

Your personality is often a strong indicator of what type of style suits you best. When I was still young, I always wanted to buy and wear branded clothes and shoes. You know, when you are surrounded by coños and coñas, you tend to buy uber expensive clothes to belong. Hashtag peer pressure. haha. Since my dad was an ofw back then, we can afford to buy branded/ signature clothes. But when I went to college my desire for branded things lessened.( Medio dapat wais na sa buhay) Even if my dad is still alive and working then. I would rather buy my clothes in Baclaran or Divisoria and even UK (ukay-ukay) in Tagaytay. Because mall prices make me sick and make a big hole in my pocket. You are just paying for the label/brand but when you wear it, wala naman kakaiba. Sooo ordinary. 

My kind of style? As a mom of 3 , I would go for Comfy, trendy and most importantly budget friendly. And guess what? I finally found the perfect place and brand that will best suit my personality, need and style - Urban Generation. Oh! Did I mention that Our Pambansang Bae Alden Richards is one of their endorsers? Yes he is! Since 2012. Together with Bea Binene and Sofia Andres.

With Urban Generation, I can be comfy, trendy and feeling "wais na Ina" all the time. No guilty feelings whenever I shop. Here are some of the best buy clothes I found in Urban.

Long sleeved blouse - P175
Jogger pants - P300
Pumps - P400

Dalawang Taon na ang nakakalipas...Samahan Ninyo akong balikan

Ito ang unang pagkakataon na magsusulat ako ng Tagalog sa blog ko. Bakit? Kase alam ko na marami ang tinatamad magbasa kapag Ingles ang babasahin nila. At itong isusulat ko ay tungkol naman sa akin at kung ano ba talaga ang nangyari sa akin, dalawang taon na ang nakalilipas.

November 23, 2013 - sumakit ng matindi ang ulo ko. Dinala ako ng mommy ko sa Quirino Memorial Medical Center sa ER, chineck ako ng mga doctor, pinauwe kase migraine lang daw. Niresetahan ako ng Paracetamol.

November 26-27 - hindi pa rin tumitigil ang sakit ng ulo ko at nagsusuka na ako sa sobrang sakit. Binalik ako ng mommy ko ulit sa QMMC. Wala na kase akong trabaho kaya wala na akong health card kaya sa public hospital ako dinala ng mommy ko. Lahat ng lab tests ginawa na - normal. Inobserbahan ulit ako. At sa pangalawang pagkakataon, MIGRAINE na naman. Nagsabi na ang mommy ko sa Dr-in- charge na hihingi kami ng referral slip para ipa CTScan ako, ang sagot ng doctor "Bakit po?". Ang nanay talaga, iba talaga ang pakiramdam kapag sa anak na may nangyayari. Ang katwiran ng mommy ko, normal lahat ng tests, pero masakit pa rin ang ulo ko baka sa ulo na ang problema! Pinaghintay kme ng ilang oras para sa kapirasong papel na hiningi ng mommy ko. Kase nga, ayaw pa rin siya bigyan kahit ilang beses na siya nag follow-up. Sa wakas, nabigyan din kami. Umuwi muna kami para makapag pahinga ako.

November 28 - naiwan kami ng 2 maliliit na anak ko sa bahay. Kase may pinuntahan ang mommy ko, pumasok sa trabaho si Mr. MITD at ang panganay ko nasa school. Nang umuwi si Mr. MITD, nakita nya ako nakaupo sa sahig, puno ng suka ang paligid ko, basang basa ang bahay namin kasi naglaro ng tubig ang mga bata ng hindi ko namamalayan. Ginising nya ako, tinanong kung anong nangyari at kung sumuka ako, ang sagot ko Hindi. Hindi ko na alam ang nangyayari sa paligid ko. (Ang term ng mga doctor dito ay "comatose" na ako). Ang huling natatandaan ko, binuhat ako pababa ng hagdan ng Daddy ni Mr. MITD kase hindi ko na kayang tumayo. Hanggang sa dinala nila ako sa Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center sa Marikina. Wala pa rin akong malay. Nagigising ako paminsan pero parang wala lang. Ang sabi may "electrolyte imbalance" ako. Sinabi na ng mommy ko may request siyang hawak para ipa-CTScan ako, nag suggest si Dr. Lovendino na ipa MRI na ako para mas makita ang kaliit-liitang parte ng ulo ko.

November 29 - nagawa na rin ang MRI, hindi ko pa rin masyado naiintindihan ang nangyayari. Isang tanong, isang sagot (Friday na ng hapon kaya wala ng mag iinterpret) 

Iyong pulang bilog ganyan kalaki ang tumor
8.0 x 7.0 x 3.0 cm

December 2, Monday - lumabas ang resulta ng MRI... nagulantang ang lahat samantalang ako kalmado lang kasi nga hindi ko na alam ang nangyayari. Haha. Sinabi naman nila agad sa akin na may brain tumor ako, tinanong ko ano ang gagawin? Ooperahan daw ako. Okay, sige. Kailan? 'Yan lang ang sinabi ko.
Sinabihan kami na kung magpapa opera huwag daw sa hospital nila, hindi ko alam kung bakit? Kaya naghanap na naman ang mga mahal ko sa buhay ng paglilipatan sa akin.

   IMPRESSION : Extraaxial mass, right frontal as described. Considered Meningioma?

*Meningioma - brain tumor

Iyong sinasabing migraine ng private at public hospital ay brain tumor na pala! At malaki na.

*** Mabalik ko lang May 19 ng parehong taon, sinugod din ako sa ER ng The Medical City sa Ortigas. 12 am. Yes, sa private hospital kase may card pa ako at employed pa ako. Puro lab tests, pinaabot lang kme ng 2 oras bago ako pinauwi. Pero nung kukuha pa lang ako ng urine sample, hindi na ako umabot sa CR, basang-basa na ang pantalon ko kase hindi na ako nakapag pigil (incontinence). Mabuti na lang may "convenience store" nakabili ng shorts at undies! :p  Pina head xray ako, hinilo lang ako kase nakatayo ako, nakahawak lang ako sa machine na pinagtayuan sa akin. MIGRAINE. Paracetamol at vitamins ulit reseta!

*** Meron pa ulit parehong hospital, inadvise pa ako na magpa check ng mata (Glaucoma package) kase baka sa mata naman daw ang problema kaya sumasakit ang ulo ko. Normal ang result...

*** Naka -duty ako noon sa trabaho, pumasok ako sa backroom para sumuka. Pinapunta na ako ng Manager ko sa St. Lukes, sa Neurologist. Pinukpok lang tuhod ko, pinataas ang 2 braso ko tapos tinapik-tapik... MIGRAINE na naman ulit! Tsk tsk... 

Mabalik tayo...

December 3 - Dinala na ako sa Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center. Ang pangatlong hospital na pinagdalhan sa akin. Sinabihan na kami na kailangan ng 10 bags ng dugo para sa operasyon ko, kailangan mag rent ng "driller" na gagamitin sa pagbukas ng bungo?! Seryoso? Oo seryoso sila. Ayoko na alamin anong klaseng driller ang ginamit sa akin. Iyong mga araw na sumunod natatakot na pala silang lahat (pamilya at mga kaibigan ko) kase ang sabi 2 lang : mamamatay ako o mawawalan ng memory kase ga-platito na ang laki ng tumor. Mga 10 years na siguro sa ulo ko iyon kaya lumaki ng ganoon. STRESS, head trauma sama-sama na kaya ganun na kalaki.

December 4 -10 -wala akong ginagawa kung hindi matulog, kumain at magdasal. Hindi ko alam na nagkakalap na pala ang pamilya at mga kaibigan ko ng pinansyal na tulong sa lahat. Salamat. Ako na yata ang pasyente na magana kumain kasi naman ang mga bumibisita sa akin ang dami laging dalang pagkain. Syempre, shine-share ko naman sa mga ibang pasyente at bantay sa ward. Sayang at baka masira lang.

December 10 - gabi. Kailangan umuwi ni Mr. MITD para siya naman ang makasama ng mga bata sa bahay. Ang mommy ko ang naiwan sa akin magbantay. Kahit gabing gabi na ayaw pa niya umuwi kse ewan ko kung naiiyak ba sya, natatakot ba sya kase lagi lang sya nakayakap at nakahalik sa akin. At binigyan nya ako ng notebook nakasulat ang mga pangalan at birthdays ng tatlong anak namin. Kaya para hindi kami maiyak... nag unlimited selfie kami. Haha. Nakatulog naman ako paguwi nya kasi nagdasal ako at ipinaubaya ko na ang lahat sa Diyos.

December 11 - , alas otso ng umaga, nang kunin ako sa ward kase ang bata na dapat mauuna sa akin na ooperahan ay may sipon kaya pinagpaliban muna sya. Sa pagkakataong iyon, nung tinawag na ang pangalan ko. Natakot na ako. Ang ginawa ko na lang niyakap ko ang mommy ko ng mahigpit na mahigpit, doon na ako umiyak at ang nasabi ko lang "I love you, mommy"... kailangan ko ipakita na malakas ako kase ayoko ng nagaalala at nalulungkot ang mommy ko kaya sinabi ko na lang na kuhaan nya ako ng litrato hanggang sa dalhin ako sa operating room. Galing naman ng pagkakakuha nya... hehe...

Bago ako mawalan ng malay kinausap ko yung isa sa mga doktor sa operating room, binilin ko na ayusin ang pagkaka shave ng buhok ko at paki tago ng maayos. Wala na sa akin ang buhok na donate ko na rin sa para sa mga pasyente na may cancer.

-- nagumpisa ang operasyon ko ng 11:00 AM natapos ng 08:10 ng gabi.Tumagal ng siyam na oras ang operasyon ko. "Half-awake" ako habang inooperahan ganun daw talaga para mamonitor ako. Nung nagkamalay ako tinanong ako ilang taon na ako. Sumagot ako. 34. Edi natuwa na sila. Gusto ko pa magpa bibo para makauwi na ako agad sa mga bata kaya sinabi ko full name ko, pangalan ng 3 anak ko pati birthdays nila, pangalan ng mga naging teachers ko simula prep hanggang High school na lang kase nung College magulo eh. Iba iba. Pati sections ko nung High School sinabi ko pa. Pero hindi pa rin ako nakauwe agad. Natakot yata sila sa akin kaya hindi ako pinauwi kaagad. Mali pa yata ginawa kong pagpapa bibo. Haha

Iiyak na naman ang mommy ko nito pag nakita nya. Siya ang nagpu-pump ng dugo na galing sa ulo ko at sinusukat nya. Kahit gaano sya kaduwag sa dugo lahat kinaya nya para sa akin. I love you so much, mommy!!! 

Nung nagising ako bandang 11 ng gabi, pinatawag na si Mr. MITD sa recovery room. Siya na ang bantay ko kase umuwi na ang mommy ko sa bahay para samahan matulog ang mga bata. Natatandaan ko pa ang sinabi ko sa kanya pagkakita ko "Dada, good girl ako. Strong ko no?!" Hehe. Monthsary din namin nun 85th!  Sa totoo lang habang sinusulat ko ito ngayon umiiyak na naman ako. Kase naalala ko pa rin kung gaano ako kabaliw pagka tapos ng operasyon ko. Ang dami ko naririnig at nakikita na hindi nila naririnig at nakikita. Takot na takot ako. Pero hanggang ngayon kaya ko ikwento at pangalanan ang mga tao sa kwento ko sa kanila noon. Tumagal pa ako ng ilang araw sa ospital kaya lalo ako hindi napakali kase gustong gusto ko na makita ang mga anak ko. Miss na miss ko na sila. Salamat sa Diyos noong December 21, nakauwe na rin kami. Ayaw ko pa maniwala na hindi pa tapos ang Pasko. Kase sabi ko hindi pa kami nakakapanood ng MMFF parade. Yearly kase namin ginagawa yun simula bata ako. hehe.

Noong nangyari sa akin ito, ang panganay na anak ko ay 12 years old lang. Siya ang nagalaga sa dalawa nyang maliliit na kapatid ng halos isang buwan. Ang isa may autism 4 yrs old ang isa 2 yrs old lang nung mga panahong iyon. Nakakatuwa na sa murang edad ay naging responsable sya at nagtiyaga sa mga kapatid nya. 

Hindi ko kinukuwento ito para kaawaan nyo ako. Parang awa nyo na.HUWAG! Sinulat ko ito para isang kwentuhan na lang na maaring balik balikan. Na hindi naman ako mapapagod magkwento ng paulit ulit. At para magsilbing inspirasyon sana sa lahat. Na kahit ano pa ang mangyari sa atin, huwag na huwag tayong susuko.Lagi natin iisipin na may reason si Lord kung bakit nangyayari ang lahat ng bagay. Kapit lang lagi sa Kanya.

Marami din ako narealize nung nangyari ito.

- kahit ano pa ang pagsubok na dumating sa atin, tumawag lang tayo sa Diyos hindi nya tayo pababayaan. malaki ang nagagawa ng dasal lalo't marami ang nagdadasal
- mabuti at napalaki ako ng mga magulang ko na maging madasalin at lagi magtitiwala kay Jesus, Mother of Perpetual Help at kay Padre Pio.
- MAHALIN at PAHALAGAHAN ANG ATING MAGULANG LALO ANG ATING INA, kase iisa lang yan at gagawin nya ang lahat para sa anak kahit gaano ka pa naging masama sa kanya. Hindi ako bad sa mommy ko. Love ko nga sya eh. Alam nya yun.
- ang pamilya natin kahit anong mangyari lagi lang nandyan para damayan tayo sa kung ano ang pinagdadaanan natin.
- basta gumawa ka lagi ng mabuti sa kapwa mo, babalik at babalik sa iyo. Kaya kung kasamaan ang binigay mo sa kapwa mo, iyon din ang babalik sa iyo. Kagaya ng hindi ko inaasahang mga tumulong sa akin at nang may nakausap ako, ang sabi nya...mabait ka kase kaya maraming tumulong sa iyo. Eh hindi ko naman talaga nakakausap iyon nung High School lagi. May nagawa pala akong maganda sa kanya. Mabait pala ako? Kasi aminado ako na maldita ako. Hehe
- nakikilala mo talaga ang mga tunay na kaibigan sa oras ng kagipitan at pagsubok
- nangyayari pala talaga sa totoong buhay ang akala ko napapanood ko lang sa telenovela.
- dati natatakot ako sa mga public hospital pero bumalik ang tiwala ko dahil sa magagaling kong doktor. Sana marami pa ang katulad nila.
- alisin o bawasan ang STRESS araw araw ( tao- OO!, bagay-OO! pangyayari- OO!, gawain-OO! Pinoy Henyo lang?! Haha)
- na ang cute ko pala pag chubby cheeks at kalbo... parang baby lang ulit ;p

Kahit anong mangyari ang pamilya ang laging unang dadamay.

Ang mga kaibigan ko simula elementary na dumamay sa akin at mga dating kasamahan sa trabaho na tumulong sa akin at sa aking pamilya. Salamat.

Ang mga kaibigan at ka -batch ko nung High School na hindi ko inaasahan na tutulong sa akin. Sobrang malaki ang naitulong nila. Mga nandito sa Pinas at sa Amerika. Ayaw na magpa banggit ng iba.Salamat ng marami sa inyo. Lalong lalo na sa bestfriend kong si Jen. Hanggang makauwi ako nagdadala ng special na tubig sa akin...Thank you!
Ang cute ko oh! Hehe. Baby :p

Siguro dito ko na tatapusin ang kwento ko ng nangyari sa akin dalawang taon na ang nakaraan... tuloy ang buhay. Salamat sa Diyos. Salamat sa lahat ng taong tumulong, nag dasal at nagpakita ng pagmamahal sa akin at sa pamilya ko. Hinding hindi ko kayo makakalimutan hanggat ako ay nabubuhay. Mahal ko kayo. ♥♥♥

Filipino riders geared up for thrilling bike action around the roads in Metro Manila last Nov. 21 to 22 for the BGC Cycle Asia Philippines. Close to 2,000 cycling enthusiasts joined the event which featured exciting and challenging categories for children, adults and families.

The event, in its third edition this year, is a part of Cycle Asia, a network of premier cycling events across the region that offers participants the rare opportunity to ride on safe closed public roads in major Asian cities.  It was brought here in the country by organizer Sunrise Events, Inc. in partnership with Cycle Asia and Bonifacio Global City (BGC).

"We are excited to continue an active year of sports for Sunrise Events, Inc. with our team-up with BGC and our international partner, Cycle Asia, the BGC Cycle Asia Philippines made it possible for Filipino families to participate in sports activities as exercise to promote their health and ensure a wholesome lifestyle," said Wilfred Steven Uytengsu, CEO of Sunrise Events Inc.

Prior to the ride events, the entire family were entertained with a wide range of fun activities in the Cycling & Lifestyle Expo at the Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila, the Official Residence of the BGC CycleAsia Philippines for 2016.

The fun cycling action started  in the morning of Saturday, November 21 via the kiddie ride categories starting with the 30-minute Junior Challenge ride and followed by The Kid’s Ride and Tricycle Ride categories. This day proved to be a fun bonding activity for parents and kids complete with post-event ride activities such as the bull ride and kiddie inflatables.

On Sunday, November 22, were the Adult Ride categories. The event was kicked-off by the Ride with Robbie with Australian former PRO cyclist and three-time Tour de France green jersey sprinter’s classification winner Robbie McEwen. It was followed by the 40km Challenge Ride and the 20km Community and Foldies Community Rides.

According to Mr. Manuel Blas II, Head of Commercial Operations for Fort Bonifacio Development Corp., “The participation in Cycle Philippines through the years have shown us that cycling is here to stay and that it is going beyond being a hobby and sport where people are more and more using it as an alternative mode of transportation to get around the metro.  This insight pushed us to implement more bike racks around the city. Furthermore, it also inspired us to experiment with a bike-sharing program which will be launched in the near future.”

With Bonifacio Global City (BGC) as the title sponsor,and with the valuable support of Taguig City, BGC Cycle Philippines has attracted a number of additional sponsors: Gatorade (Hydration Partner), 2Go Express, (Official Courier and Logistics Partner), Ascott Bonifacio Global City (Official Residence) and others including Subaru, Rudy Project, Scott Bikes, Rocktape, Regent, Garmin, Pioneer Insurance, Herbalife,, Skippy’s bar and Grill and Purefoods Sexy Chix.  Philippine Star and ABS-CBN Sports+ Action are the event’s media partners while Goya and Cetaphil are its marketing partners.
