Lin-Ay sang Negro


Shout FUN, this is the ‘highlight of the highlights’ of the entire festival, the Lin-Ay sang Negros Pageant. Let me do some guessing, Lin-Ay is kinda like a word for ‘Beauty’ right? Any Hiligaynon speaking people there, just advice me here. Thanks. Its a Friday night, April 12 and yes I arrived early and with-out a fan fare. Since am I have a self-declared ALL-ACCESS pass, I take my journey as an investigative slash detective journalist.


Haven’t I’ve been going around on events like on exclusive parties, celebrity gatherings, big concerts and all kinds of festivals? So, it feels like home here. Good evening, welcome your expert. But really, honestly talking to some candidates and any persons I get to bumped into is quite a learning experience. Am like a student again, discovering culture and learning the different festivals slash histories of towns/cities. I made some friends too, thanks to those approachable and nice people. You guys were amazing and gorgeous.


I also hosted LIVE Twitting and FB Blogging, LIVE, Real-Time. And that night, we have 50,000 plus people engaging us on Facebook. Check our page: Panaad sa Negros or Hashtag #Panaadsanegros @micuniversity. Holaaaa, I sat near Miss Ilog with mobile wi-fi, and going all-around from time to time. FUN, as always.

 La Carlota: Inez. She wins lots of corporate awards. Also my fave to win. She said whatever happens she’ll accept w/ humility. She wants to be a doctor someday, rather than a beauty queen. She’s approachable and soo nice. Cheer up Inez.
