TV5 Drama Set in Misibis

Misibis Bay — In the coming days, TV5 is not just about to present the results of its hard work but it is also set to display the magnificence of the luxurious Misibis Bay when the story of its latest primetime drama offering titled Misibis Bay begins to unfold in the small screen. Perched in the south-easternmost tip of Cagraray Island, Misibis Bay is a tropical hideaway in Bacacay, Albay.

According to business unit creative head Mac Alejandre, several top tourist destinations were considered to be the backdrop of the sexy drama series that topbills Ritz Azul, one of the network’s teleserye princesses. “We searched for the most fitting location. We even looked at the possibility of going abroad like in Thailand for the show,” he shares. “Until the day came when the production team found Misibis (Bay) as the perfect setting for the sexy revenge drama. After several meetings with the management of the resort, a partnership was forged.”

In the press conference, GM Ian Mayer Varona says, “We were approached regarding the possibility of (TV5) shooting here at the resort…It’s not just a resort; it’s the product of the vision of the owner to develop Bicol as a destination because in recent years, Bicol was always known for being a gateway of typhoons, eruptions or calamities. That scene has changed. Bicol is now on the tourism map and this opportunity to partner with TV5 came and I think it’s very timely because we are really pushing Bicol to be one of the top destinations in the Philippines.

This series is very instrumental in pushing forward the tourism agenda of the region. Our marketing pitch is not just the resort itself but it’s really the beauty of Bicol so I hope this will be a most successful partnership and we are behind TV5 all the way.
Direk Mac made it clear that everything started with a concept. They thought of coming up with a sexy drama that is fast-paced yet interesting and exciting for the viewers. And they see it best to do most of the scenes in a place that will complement the core of the story.
We feel that there’s a ‘movement’ in all corners of the television industry…we know that pretty soon something will happen and whoever has the right timing and the one who is always ready to seize the moment at the most opportune time, s’ya ang mananaig. Misibis is one of TV5’s preparations. It is fast-paced; it will run for only six weeks but without compromising the quality. Ito rin ang maglulunsad sa paniniwala ng TV5 that Ritz will become a television superstar. The network trusts her and the production team deemed this is the most fitting (acting) vehicle that will catapult her to stardom.

Pantomina Lyrics And Music

Pantomina is Spanish for pantomime, movements imitating the courtship movements of the rooster and the hen. Ang mga babaye
Kung mayo pa nin agom
Maugay nin aga maugay nin hapon
Alagad kung sinda igua na nin agom
Maugay Octobre, Disyembreng sunudon. Ica palan, Nenang ang pinagsasabi
Magayon na burac sa lugar na ini
Magayon ang tindog malinig ang pisngi
Arin pa daw ang puso ang dai mawili. Can ica sadit pa sadit pa man aco
Si satuyang cawat magkudot-kudotan
Kinudot mo aco kinudot ta ca man
Sabi mo sa saco luhayluhaya man. Ang mga lalake
Hudyan sisaboot
Ang pinagsasabing ngarang pagcamoot
Kundi ang babayeng iyo minahilod
Akong minahiling can mga pangguyod.

Philippine Mining Act of 1995

With the recent issue of magnetite ore mining overwhemingly opposed by residents in the town of Bagamanoc and recently moved the mining site off the coast of Panganiban (Payo), I am compelled to post this Mining Act to serve as reference. "Republic Act No. 7942 or the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 (“Act”) is the governing law that regulates mineral resources development in the country. One of the primary objectives of this act is to revitalize the ailing Philippine mining industry by providing fiscal reforms and incentives and maintaining a viable inventory of mineral reserves to sustain the industry through the infusion of fresh capital through direct investments to finance mineral exploration and/or development activities. The original implementing rules and regulations of the Act was prepared in 1995, and was revised in 1996 under DENR Administrative Order 96 – 40, the revised implementing rules and regulations (RIRR). Collectively, the Act and its RIRR take into considerat…

The Batalay Shrine

The site of the first cross in Catanduanes, believed to have been constructed over the grave of the shipwrecked Fr. Diego de Herrera of the Augustinian order in 1576, who died in the barangay of Batalay. A well believed to have water with healing powers can be found in this shrine. From the town proper of Bato, it would take only 15 minutes to reach this place. Reading the online historical accounts about the fate of Fray Diego de Herrera and Espiritu Santo crew, I found some interesting yet inconclusive accounts as to what really happened. "Located at the Southeastern coast of Catanduanes is a reef called Nagumbuaya Point which is linked by traditional with the place where a Galleon Espiritu Santo taken by Fray Diego de Herrera and nine other companies which embarked from Mexico suffered shipwreck on April 25, 1576 on their way to Cebu because of the negligence of the pilot of the ship and bad weather." - wikipedia In October last year, the Historical and Nautical Archa…

Lorong Point Lighthouse on Panay Island

Constructed in 1997 and finished in October 1998, the Lorong Point lighthouse was one of the many Philippine lighthouses constructed or rehabilitated under the Maritime Safety Improvement Project, Phase B, funded by a P3-billion loan from the Overseas Economic Cooperation Fund (OECF) of the Japanese government.
