Israel Captured the Elusive Kingdom at Last



Indeed, the elusive Kingdom of Korea was at last captured by Israel Antonio! Charlie and Chris may not have succeeded last year but another warrior from igorotlandia did.

Aside from the title of Gg. Kalinangang Pilipino, Israel also won the Darling of the Crowd, Mr. Talent and Best in Costume...

May Hedacos from Bukidnon won the Bb. Kalinangang Pilipino.

Ambassador Luis Cruz and Tourism Attache Maricon have graced the affair.

Fr. Alvin Parantar and Edgar Balista, Chaplain and President of the Hyehwadong Filipino Catholic Community respectively are also shown in the above pics.

(Sabi ko kasi eh, may ibubuga naman talaga tayo. Alisin na kasi ang pagkamahiyain!)

Challenged To Do Better



The new set of officers of the Cordillera Brotherhood Organization-Korea is faced by a challenge to do better for the interest of the group and as Filipinos in Korea.

CBO on its 17th year of existence has proven unity in diversity which members came from the different tribes of the Cordilleras (Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, Kalinga, Apayao and Abra).

Chelo Lim, the newly installed president of CBO is the sister-in-law of Jimmy Lim, the founder and first president of the organization (1995). She's an active officer of BIBAK during her college days in Pangasinan.

In the pics are Inducting Officer Labor Attache Delmer Cruz, Fr. Peter Choi of Sahalom House and past CBO officers as Advisers.

Igorota Song

Help us promote this Song. Super ganda ang lyrics and the melody, nahohomesick tuloy ako! Atlast the song is finally uploaded sa youtube. Most people from Kias know this song way back 1990's because this song was introduced by DAnny Tawanna who was the composer. Jun was so lucky that Danny gave him all his compositions to record. Danny is likewise lucky to have Jun record his songs. For everybody's info Danny suffered from a stroke and is now living in Nueva Viscaya. Just don't know if Jun pushed his plan of having Danny in his audience when he launched this album. (rainne68)
