AlDub vs Pastillas unstoppable

Like millions of Filipinos around the world, we are also crazy about AlDub and Pastillas Girl.
AlDub is the daily kalyeserye romance portion involving split-screen lovers Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza as Yaya Dub. Its “love from a distance” tale has captured the hearts of the viewers, including yours truly, who was bitten by Eat Bulaga’s AlDub bug two month ago.
Then, amid Eat Bulaga’s surging ratings owing to AlDub’s success, the rival show It’s Showtime came up with its own kiligserye featuring Angelica Yap, who was known online for her viral video of “bitter” pastillas recipe. She first appeared in the show asking Vice Ganda’s alter ego Madame Vertud for advice on how to move on after she was ditched by her boyfriend for her best friend.
Analyn Pollenza-Arbilo and her colleagues at the Philippine Port Authority unabashedly showed how gigil they were about the AlDub love team. All eyes are glued on Eat Bulaga’s kalyeserye.
Student and peanut vendor Roniel Villanueva shared he is an AlDub fan, while his sister Renelyn is a fan of Pastillas Girl.
Analyn, Roniel and Reselyn are up-to-date with the free-flowing AlDub romance and Pastillas heartaches.
AlDub or Pastillas Girl?
Anthony Aniscal shared he likes Pastillas Girl. “She is beautiful.”
“I rarely watch them pero I’ll choose Pastillas because it is a hard process of fixing and closing your pasts relationship and past issues before opening your heart for the next chapter of lovelife,” said Ferome Almine.
“AlDub because I found it funnier compared to Pastillas,” said Hazel Panlita. “I’m not being judgemental but you can’t pick good lessons with them, compared to AlDub show, Lola Nidora has lessons to ponder.” She also said Pastillas is boring, and the big difference is Yaya Dub keeps on making her face ugly during kalyeserye. “But the uglier she pretends the more beautiful she glows, unlike pastillas, she keeps on pa-cute but .... HeHeHe never mind,, but she is pretty naman but Maine is by choice.”
Pastillas Girl
“AlDub,” said Beryl Elizabeth Lupot. “Gi-rekindle ang old ways of courting in a modern twist.”
US-based socialite Mikey Gatal confessed he is an Aldub fan. “I am AlDub and Yayadub forever.”  He said AlDub is an effective stress reliever. “Let's put it this way, AlDub fever shares a unique sense of humor and at the same time it reminds us of ourselves and gives moral lesson.”
Jhoel Lim said: “Di ko ka relate sa giyera ng Aldub at Pastillas.”
“None of the two,” said Fiel Angeli Araoarao-Gabin.  She said she was curious on Pastillas Girl and AlDub. “The (funny, crazy or utterly annoying) things that media moguls do to pull the ratings.”
If ever he decided to run in 2016, Clarin Mayor Allen Ray Piezas told VRS last Wednesday that he would seek re-election for Mayor.
AlDub fans say that the AlDub phenomenon is
 not just a noontime craze, it tells our Filipino society.

“If gusto sa mga tawo, I am open for my last term,” said Mayor Piezas who steels the wheels of Clarin’s development.
Vice- Mayor Velden Aparicio told VRS that she will seek re-election. “Yes for re-election. Second term if ihatag sa katawhan sa Clarin ug sa Ginoo.”
Incidentally, Clarin will celebrate the feast of St. Michael on Sept. 29. Visitors and guests will be impressed in the town’s physical landscape. One noticeable structure that greets the eyes is the two-storey public market which was built in 1988 and was partially damaged by the Bohol earthquake in 2013.
On the other hand, Doxson Asoy is planning to run for mayor in San Isidro town. On Facebook, he said he will definitely run for Mayor.
“But I still have to finalize it,” explained the former Bohol SK federated president of Bohol and ABC president. His wife, Karen, will support whatever decision he will make.

James Tripoli of the office of Tubigon Mayor Marlon Amila is running in 2016 as persistent reports have been mentioning him as on the short list of administration bet Amila’s councilor. James said he has to think whether to file his Certificate of Candidacy (COC) for councilor in October.
Barely two weeks from now,  we will know who will be running in the May 2016 elections.

All the judges and madlang people were really impressed about their revealed performance that they garnered a perfect 10 scores from madlang pipol. “Yung nagbebeatbox (referring to Aldrin Palaca) pare, ang galing mo bro, yung naguitar, nag-harp. Tapos yung bata may matandang tao sa katawan niya. Ang pinaka-best sa inyo makayaban, Pinoy na Pinoy kayo.

Miniature Christmas village attracts visitors

Now on its third year, the miniature Christmas Village of Mila Lim has fascinated visitors and friends who visit it during the holidays.

The Christmas Village is a decorative, miniature village occupying the main entrance of her house. It’s literally filled with trees of green and gold, colorful mini-shops, miniature skiers up and down the slopes, carnival rides, dancers twirling to a waltz inside a gazebo, skaters in the park, Santa Clauses dancing and flying on sleighs and a choo-choo train running in circles. 
"My Christmas village has 53 houses and I have 118 Santa Claus collections," shared Mila.

Mila started the project in 2008 and has since increased her collection of miniature Christmas houses and objects. Some of the items were bought during her travels abroad, while others were gifts from her friends.

When she was a child, Mila said she was fascinated by Santa Claus so she decided to collect Santa Claus for a decade now. To date, she has 115 Santa Claus.
Scattered throughout are Santa Claus in all shades and shapes. There are singing and dancing santas, and ala Tarzan santa. Even her glasses and place mats are in Christmas motif.

Importantly, Christmas music coming from the village and the sala boosts the festive atmosphere.

The Christmas Village will run until Jan. 8, 2012, the Feast of the Three Kings (Epiphany of the Lord) at the House of Mila Lim along M. Torralba Street (at the back of the Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital).

Four years from now, the province’s oldest beauty pageant, the Miss Bohol Sandugo, will celebrate its 60th year.

The memory of those lovely and enchanting ladies who made their mark in the Miss Bohol pageant arena would always linger in the minds of pageant aficionados.

“Don’t you wish we will write a book about the Miss Bohol winners?” asked Bohol’s seasoned host and personality guru Raul Gatal. Yes, why not?

1977 beauties. The Top Three were all from the then Divine Word College now Holy Name University From L-R: 1st RU Antoniette Biloy, Miss DWCT, 1977 Most Beautiful Boholana Ellen "Jick Jick" Campbell, Miss Tagbilaran City, 2nd RU Angie Pepito, Miss Rotary Club of Tagbilaran City
Churning out a book recording the history of Miss Bohol is a history in itself. I was approached by Raul in the latter part of 2004 about his initial plan to make a book.  He got a nod from Prof. Marianito Jose Luspo. Raul wanted a coffee -table book to commemorate the pageant.  As Raul soldiered on, however, the project didn’t materialize.

Winners come and go. It is a high time that the Miss Bohol Sandugo deserves a book on its 60th.

Here’s a fond lookback (some interesting trivia) at the Miss Bohol Sandugo winners, courtesy of Raul :

• The 1956 Miss Bohol Paula Raagas Valles became a mayor of her town Maribojoc.

Olivia Solis, the 1957 winner, became famous for the Visayan serial radio drama song "Dawata na Olivia" which was composed especially for her. It was a sentimental journey home when she graced the 2000 Miss Calape pageant where her ageless beauty and charm were admired by one and all.

• The 1962 Miss Bohol, the very regal and elegant Delia Canda- de la Serna represented Bohol in the 1962 Miss Philippines Pageant which selected the country's bet for the 1963 Miss Universe Pageant. Delia was selected as Miss Visayas or 3rd runner up to Lalaine Benett who became the 1963 Miss Universe 3rd runner up. 

•The 1968 Miss Bohol that was organized by the Bohol Jaycees selected the province's bets to the 1968 Binibining Pilipinas Pageant.  Theoprolia Clarin Parras and Emma Mumar were Bohol's bets to the country's most prestigious pageant. Miss Mumar was declared one of the 15 semi- finalists in the 1968 edition of Bb Pilipinas.

 • In 1976, the pageant was relaunched as The Search for the Most Beautiful Boholana. It was won by Divine Word College's bet, Lou Minoza.

Ellen Campbell
 • The 1977 pageant attracted 34 candidates who represented towns, the city, schools, civic and business clubs. The winner was the vivacious Ellen Jick Jick" Campbell who represented Tagbilaran City. Her 1st RU was Miss DWCT'S Antoniette Biloy. 2nd RU was Angie Pepito, Miss Rotary Club of Tagbilaran. Rounding out the Top Seven were the candidates from Garcia Hernandez, Tubigon, Jagna and Loon.  Ellen "Jick Jick" Campbell passed away in Feb 2001 after losing the battle with the big C. She would always be remembered as one of the loveliest Miss Bohol winners.

• In 1978, the pageant was won by the well- bred Geraldine Galang of Carmen who represented DWCT. She officially became Miss Divine Word College in 1979.

 • The 1983 edition that was organized by the then Kabataang Barangay Prov'l Chair Hon. Edgar Chatto was aptly named Miss Young Bohol. It holds the record of having the most number of candidates with a total of 37 girls from around Bohol. It was won by Marcelina Marcel Orimaco Gatal of Tagbilaran City who was also adjudged Best in Gown for her unforgettable red and white serpentina evening gown which she carried with elan and poise. Her runners up included Josephine Joy Tago Miss Dimiao. She is now Dr. Joy Yap, a very successful dentist. Another runner up was Miss Loboc, Tessie Labunog now Mrs. Tessie Sumampong of Loboc Riverwatch fame. A year before the 1983 Miss Young Bohol, Ms Gatal was also chosen Hiyas ng Silangan- Bohol and represented the province in the National Finals of Hiyas ng Silangan- Philippines held at the Ramada Hotel in Manila where she was adjudged Miss Talent and later chosen as one of the Top Ten Finalists. 

 • 1986 was a transition period for the Philippines for it was the year that Pres. Marcos was deposed and the Yellow Fever had swept the country- side. Then Bohol OIC Governor Victor de las Serna approved the holding of a Miss Bohol pageant that would start from the barangay level to really pick the most beautiful Boholana for that year. The statuesque and very sophisticated Gemma Manding of Tagbilaran City won in a province- wide beauty search that was participated in by all municipalities and the city in a pageant that had weekly elimination rounds prior to the grand coronation night. Miss Manding stood out and outshone all the other girls during the pageant night and swept almost all the special titles and corporate awards. The Philippine Airlines International F.A. and wife to City Councilor Hon. Beben Inting has maintained her regal bearing and retained the gorgeous looks and whistle- bait figure that won for her the Miss Bohol crown in 1986.

SeenBared’s VRS, who likes to party, has a tsika about this businessman who has bad behavior when in public and treating his people like dogs. “The wheel of karma is really true,” confirms VRS. “Because he lost his aircon and other valuables, and ((with emphasis), he lost his people. When he was richie rich, the foods in the fridge spoiled because there was plenty to waste.  Gone are the days when he bought sacks of rice because he is now buying kilos of rice for the day’s meal.” VRS continued that he even made ‘lungkab the kaha de hero’ o safe without the knowledge of his kasusyo.” The lesson? Remember to thank the Lord for all the blessings. Be kind, share it to others, reminded VRS.

The glittering ceremonies of the Miss Bohol Association of Catholic Schools (BACS) -1 held on September 15, at Garcia-Hernandez Cultural Complex, has produced Angela Rose Afable (of Sacred Heart Academy from Loon) as Miss BACS Athletics 2011, Rochelle Cabilla (of Holy Cross Academy from Tubigon) as Miss BACS Academics 2011, and Clarlaine Radoc (of Holy Family of Nazareth School also from Tubigon) as Miss BACS Personality 2011.

“Holy Cross Academy (HCA) and Holy Family of Nazareth School (HFNS), both schools from Tubigon, already tie (6 times) in the most numbered of Miss BACS Personality. A total of 12 crowns for Tubigon! Maanyag nga Tubigonon dalaygon!” shared Raymond Delgado, Tubigon information officer aka Tubigon‘s Queen of All Media.

According to Dennis Balbero, Tubigon tourism and cultural officer, other notable Miss BACS winners from Holy Family Nazareth are Vanessa Kaschier (2004), Alekzandra Lanoy (2006), Clarice Elaine Falcon Radoc (2008), Farrah Faye Mian (2009),and Dianne Mascariñas (2010), while Holy Cross Academy has Ruselle Aileen Dolatau (Miss BACS Personality 1995 and 1997 2nd Runner-up ABS-CBN Calendar Girl), Charmaine Batausa (Miss BACS Personality 1996), Christine Ires Simbajon-Lopez (Miss BACS Athletics 1997), Marecor Recio-Boligao (Miss BACS Personality 1999), Annie Joan Yumo- Miss BACS Personality 2001), Joanna Faye Obdulia Balaga  Boligao (Miss BACS Athletics 2002), Claudette Christine Ranara (Miss BACS Personality 2005), Rajevie Patpat Ravindrakumar (Miss BACS Athletics 2006), Kimberly Pacatang Lara (Miss BACS Personality 2007), Ma. Ruffa Boligao Baliore (Miss BACS Academics 2009); and Alyssa Quiñones (Miss BACS Athletics 2010).

Tubigon, as we have come to know, has produced the province’s beauty queens like Amir Sol (Miss Bohol Sandugo 2010) and Farrah Faye Mian (Miss Bohol Sandugo 2011). Anyag sa Tubigon and Miss BACS have been Tubigon’s way of not only honoring its local gems but also reinforcing its claim as the land of beautiful women with or without a title.

Bared tried to pick the two winners from Tubigon for another grueling Q&A portion to give us a clearer idea of their well-being.

 “I feel humbled, elated and proud to be adjudged and crowned as the Miss BACS Personality 2011,” said Clarlaine who bested 19 other candidates from different Catholics schools in Bohol.

“I'm so happy and proud. Though I did not get the top spot (the Miss BACS Personality) but it's the experience that makes me feel proud about. Knowing that there are lot of people supporting me, my family who's been there since the start, my mentors who spend their time during summer-school for my training, my friends and my school. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank them,” said Rochelle.

Clarlaine revealed that Miss BACS helps her to become a better person. “I experienced to develop more self-confidence and my level of academic and physical talent competency was more enhanced during the total BACS Athletic Activities most especially in the Ms. BACS Personality contest.”

“This experience helped me grow, it boost my morale because before, I was so aloof. I consider Miss BACS as an opportunity...opportunity to know what's in me and what I can proudly show,” said Rochelle.

Will they join Anyag sa Tubigon or Miss Bohol Sandugo in the near future?
From left: Miss BACS Academics 2011 Rochelle Cabilla, Miss BACS Personality 2011 Clarlaine Falcon Radoc and Miss BACS Athletics 2011 Angela Rose Afable.

“Actually, it's not really a plan, I would say, I am encouraged. It was after my coronation as Holy Cross Academy Dalagang Filipina 2010 (winner will represent HCA for Miss BACS), that there were these friends of Mr. Alindao (one of my mentors) from Tourism who approached my parents and asked to let me join Anyag. Since then, I really make the best of it, because I thought there are those people who trusted me that I can do it. So, why not try it? Who knows . And for Miss Bohol Sandugo, if I‘ll be given the chance, why not? It's my dream,” confessed Rochelle.  

“By this time, I'm not yet entertaining that kind of idea in joining that kind of activities. As of now, my focus is on my secondary study especially that I am now on the graduating year. I'll just say it in this way that ‘I'll just cross the bridge whenever I reach the river’,” said Clarlaine.

I hate people…
Clarlaine: “who oppress others especially those who are less fortunate in life.”
Rochelle: “who are insecure because they are those who tend to pull you down.”

My greatest pleasure is…
Clarlaine: “having a constant feeling of satisfaction on my study, on myself and all my activities in life.”
Rochelle: “chocolate.”

My worst moment is…
Clarlaine:  “when I see somebody who gets fun of destroying beautiful things and all that beautiful things refer to God's creation.”
Rochelle: “the day of the final rehearsal for Miss BACS when my family hasn't arrived yet...I cried...I just missed them.” 

My biggest fear is…
Clarlaine: “when I commit infractions or violations of the Commandments of the Lord God.”
Rochelle:  “death because I'm still young.”

My role model is…
Clarlaine: “basically my parents and all those people who have shown exemplary acts of modesty and righteousness.”
Rochelle:  “the late Pres. Cory Aquino.”

The most important person in my life is…
Clarlaine: “My parents because they provide the strong foundation of my personality development.”
Rochelle: “God.”

If I were to be reincarnated as an animal, I would be…
Clarlaine: “nobody because reincarnation is a divine act and I will just submit to His will.”
Rochelle:  “a bird.”

My most traumatic experience was…
Clarlaine: “when I tried to develop unknown fear in myself because of listening unfounded haunted stories.”
Rochelle:  “when I got scolded by my mother and my father didn't utter a word because he's angry too during that night. Well, I admit it was really a wrong thing. I felt very bad of myself then and I promised to them that I will not do it again.”

I deal with gossip by…
Clarlaine: “investigation to screen or filter the lies away from the truth.”
Rochelle:  “not paying attention to it really. I may have heard it but that's just it.”

I lose my temper when…
Clarlaine : “I am oppressed, insulted and abused.”
Rochelle: “I'm hungry.”

The one thing I can’t live without is…
Clarlaine: “I couldn't name a one specific thing that I couldn't live without. However, I should say that without God's gift of creation, it would be very impossible for me to live.”
Rochelle: “always been my family.”

Am I afraid of growing old?...
Clarlaine: “Of course not. I always pray to have a good health and long life but never entertaining an idea of having fear of getting old.”
Rochelle:  “Not at all. Growing old for me means progress in life.”

The type of guys who turns me on…
Clarlaine: “are those who are responsible, honest and truthful.”
Rochelle:  “is like my father. Simple guy with morals and principles. Silent but deep. Strong yet caring.”

The type of guys that turns me off…
Clarlaine: “are those who cannot provide a good contribution to our conventional society, instead, mislead the way and the truth.”
Rochelle:  “pervert, air-head and being too much of his good looks.”

My philosophy in life is…
Clarlaine : “to be always of service to the people and to God.”
Rochelle: "If you serve others as fully as you can, what you do will be a source of inner joy. It’s from the Dalai Lama.”

When I’m alone in my room, I fantasize about…
Clarlaine: “that someday, I will be recognized as the queen of justice system.”
Rochelle: “being a beauty queen in a flowy red gown, wearing a crown and carrying a bouquet of flowers and waving.” 

If I were somebody else I’d be…
Clarlaine: “president of our republic, I will be a champion in the fight of corruption.”
Rochelle : “Shamcey Supsup.”

I am happiest when…
Clarlaine: “I enjoyed and interested of what I am doing.”
Rochelle: “everybody around me is happy too because of what I do and when I succeed.”

I am saddest when…
Clarlaine : “I irresponsibly offend somebody.”
Rochelle:  “I make my parents upset.”

I want to become a…
Clarlaine: “good and brilliant legal luminary someday.”
Rochelle:  “doctor and a beauty queen.”

I pray for…
Clarlaine: “the general peace and order of our society.”
Rochelle: “good health of my family and world peace (cliché but true).”

Face to face with God, I'd tell him…
Clarlaine: “thank you Lord for giving me life and allowing me to serve you.”
Rochelle: “to bless my family and keep them away from harm. I love them so much.”
