Fila Sponsors Philippines Versus UAE Rugby Match

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Volcanoes Philippine Rugby Team has recently won a match against its competition from UAE a few nights ago at the Rizal memorial Stadium in  Manila.

Everyone cheered loud as the Philippine team was always way ahead of the competition. I never knew Rugby was as this intense and sensational as every player out there gave their all in the pursuit of the "ball" towards winning the match for the night.

Hep hep hooray for the Philippine Volcanoes as they deliver a heart-pounding blow-by-blow strike and run against players from the United Arab Emirates. Huge bodies slamming against each other, all sweating and determined to score a point.

Araneta Center Marks Fiesta Month With Grand Santacruzan

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I was invited to witness the much-awaited Araneta Center Grand Santacruzan that reeled off last Saturday, May 18 at Araneta Center,  Cubao Quezon City. 

The Santacruzan is an iconic Filipino tradition that commemorates the search of the Holy Cross by Reyna Elena and her son, Emperor Constantine. The festive mode of thanksgiving of finding the Holy Cross in Jerusalem is replicated many times over in several parts of the country during the fiesta month of May. However, none compares to the pageantry and the overload of beautiful Binibinis of the Araneta Center Grand Santacruzan. The event has become a staple in the celebration of Flores de Mayo in the metropolis.

The winners of Binibining Pilipinas 2013 led the line up and was joined by some of the other candidates of the recently concluded Binibining Pilipinas pageant.
