Asian College at Tayada sa Plaza

This weeks Tayada sa Playa was sponsored by Asian College. The Theater Arts Guild of the college did a little bit a different performance compared to most other Tayada Weekends. The team did a stunning 45 minute performance about two kids from birth to college graduation.  Some visitors might have been confused at the beginning, when 2 young came pregnant on the stage and “delivered” live on the same.

However, after a few minutes it was all clear what it is about. The show was filled with music, dancing, acting, live-band, just everything on can perform in this short time. Certainly some very talented students at Asian College.

Well done, keep up the good work.

Tayada Sa Plaza 2014 – Season Opening

Tayada Sa Plaza Dumaguete

Tayada Sa Plaza is one of our favourite events in Dumaguete. Different schools and groups are showcasing their talents on stage, which are ranging from traditional dances to vocal artists and modern dance groups. Our good friend Jun Carlos is the “talent scout” and the main organizers of Dumaguete Tourism Office, which is in charge of the event taking place on Sundays on the big stage at Quezon Park. Once again we experienced some highly entertaining hours with great enthusiastic performers.

The 2014 Season Opening had to be transferred to the COSCA Gym due to rainy weather. Nevertheless, all involved pulled off a great show which makes us look forward to the coming weeks and months. Enjoy our pictures of the:

Miss Silka Dumaguete - Evening Gown

Miss Silka Dumaguete 2014 – Coronation Night

The decision who represents Dumaguete in November at the Miss Silka Philippines 2014 contest is felt. The Miss Silka Dumaguete Coronation Night was successfully held on Saturday, July 26-2014 at Luce Auditorium. Despite the ridiculous rules for entering this “wanna-be-something-better-but-are-actually-not” place, we were able to get at least a few shots on the hard-drive. Having never attended ( for good reason) this educational facility, we could not know that flash-lights are prohibited – for a reason no one could explain us- so we needed to adjust some stuff before getting ready to shoot.

After the production number the 14 lovely candidates got in their swim-suit and impressed with their pure beauty in golden bikinis. The actual competition was already held a few weeks back at The Oasis (Florentina Homes)

Of course the lovely candidates needed some time to change into their evening gowns, so there were some intermission numbers. One of the teenage girls in the audience had here certainly the time of her (rather short up to now) life and got brought on stage by Bryan Termulo, runner-up in Pinoy Pop Superstar Year 3. And we can tell her heart was making some extra beats. Surely many teenage girls in the audience would have given more than 30 Peso load to change with her.

Blue was the color of the evening for the Miss Silka Dumaguete 2014, and all looked stunning in their gowns.

The Tourism Road Show set another Highlight of the celebrations of the Looc Fiesta 2014. Some heavy rain during the afternoon caused some delay in the stage-preparation and caused a 90 minutes delay for the show to start. It didn’t stop the enthusiastic performers and audience to have a great evening. The location was full of cheers and smiles, enjoying a very entertaining night in Looc. Thanks to Dumaguete Tourism for creating the Tourism Road Show and of course all performers and organizers involved.
