World Class Philippines Awards: Recognizing Top Filipino Brands and Achievers for 2017

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Awards and recognition keeps us well motivated because of the thought that we are doing something right and it should then be sustained so we could accomplish greater achievements. It is also equally flattering to be sit down and converse with fellow awardees who are mostly like-minded individuals who aim for the best for themselves and their companies.

Thus, even though I failed to personally be there because of a community outreach program cum travel event that I joined all the way at Bontoc, Mountain Province, I would like to extend my special thanks to the World Class Philippines council for another recognition given to Wazzup Pilipinas. We are indeed honored to be among the awardees amidst several entrepreneurs and companies that all excel and provide world-class products and services.

With so many events that day, I couldn't get a correspondent to attend and cover the awarding that night of May 27 at the Ascott Hotel in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig city. But I thought it was the best opportunity to send my mother and brother instead so they could somehow see what I have accomplished so far. I know they are proud of me for winning the award I got for my Wazzup Pilipinas community blog which excels in the field of Multimedia Promotions and Opinion Blogging.

As proud as the other awardees in the awards night venue, my brother received the award in my behalf while my mother looks on. During that time I believe I was at barangay Mainit in Bontoc, Mountain Province still recuperating from my sore body after climbing Mount. Kopapei barangay Maligcong. But we were enjoying an equally sumptuous dinner prepared by our host house for the night coordinated with Virgie Lakey Chagyowen Kilito, the daughter of the house owner who was also one of our models together with his husband and granddaughter during a photo-shoot wearing some traditional clothes of the Igorots.

I've attended events at Ascott BGC, and I could say the food provided by Alta there is yummy. But I could say that my dinners from the two barangays at Bontoc, Mountain Province are beyond comparable as they have so many stories to tell behind them. My photographer Collin Yap even had his own share of inputs to the cooks during one of our dinners, so you could say it's the best of both worlds.

The effort exerted from the several days of travel in Bontoc, Mluntain Province was all worth it. Sometimes, you have to learn to deal with some pain and risk in order to achieve your life's purpose. With my blogging, I know there is more than just writing about the events, or promoting brands and their products and services. We also want to be actively engaged and involved with the people, not only those around us, but also reaching out to those at far-flung places that are hard to reach.

The recognition we received that night strengthens our dedication to reach out to more opportunities to help out more and more people while at the same time promoting the beauty of the Philippines.

At the awards night, a very lively opening number from Sindaw Philippines Performing Arts Guild featuring Princess. Hosted by Mr. JC Garcia and Ms. Roseann Ko (sponsored by PMCM Events Management) with Mr. William Thio (UNTV). It was opened by the WORLD CLASS PHILIPPINES AWARDS COUNCIL members and guest with Cake cutting and Wine toasting with wishes for more success and long, healthy life for all present.

The World Class Philippines 2017 Awarding kicked off with Ms. Shamcey Supsup-Lee's Inpirational Speech. Of course, if Shamcey is there, her husband is also there to support her.  Lloyd Lee is more than often around when Shamcey attends or hosts events. The lovely couple looked great as always and we also send our congratulations to them for their successful business, Pedro 'N Coi restaurant, which was named after the two of them.

Guest Host, Mr. William Thio from UNTV announced the World Class Filipino Awardees presented by Ms. Lhai D. Santiago (EDS Mobility Technology Sdn Bhd), Ms. Kathelyn Dupaya Kathelyn (MK Group of Companies), and the members of the WCP Council 2017, Ms. Jennifer Serrano Reyes, Ms. Mildred Uy with Mr. Michael Guerrero Samson, VP for Operations, IVP Global Phils- - Honorary Council member.

Congratulations also to viral child star Balang for winning an award that is highly deserving as this kid has made a stunning international presence thru his guesting at the Ellen Degeneres show because of his viral online videos.

Gorgeous Ladies and Dashing Male Awardees took turns in their regality while receiving their awards. Congratulations to the likes of Daniel Razon from UNTV, and viral child star Balang for winning their respective awards as World Class Filipino.

Song and dance performances from Filipino talents graced the stage to entertain the awardees and other guests that night. We have so many great talents that should be praised for their singing and dancing prowess that we should not be looking at foreign entertainers to idolize. Right here in the Philippines are so many amazing talents that are just waiting to be discovered. As they say, everyone is promising to be the next singing or dancing sensation. They just need a big break to be part of mainstream entertainment and now they are considered as among the world class performers after receiving the World Class Philippines Awards for this year 2017.

Acknowledgment and touching speeches from Mr. Arthur A. Cruzada (Le Premiere Language Manila) and Engr. Joven Diaz (World Cruisers Adventure Travel and Tours) were given that night inspiring everyone's spirit. 

My mother had a photo holding my trophy and certificate while sitting down at one of the sofas of Ascott BGC hotel. She must be extremely proud because she posted it on her Facebook page announcing that her son is the awardee. She must be very tired that night since the awardees were called based on alphabetical order, and sadly Wazzup Pilipinas is among the last to be called for starting with W. But patience is one of our virtues so waiting for our turn is not really a struggle. The moment you receive the award, everything else gets forgotten because this new achievement is another unforgettable memory for our family and team.

Congratulations to all the winners, my fellow awardees, who have all received another addition to their portfolio of achievements!
