Visiting multiple churches during Holy Week, also known as Visita Iglesia, had become a tradition of mine for the last few years and this year I had the chance to revisit some of the most beautiful and revered churches in the country. Here are the 14 churches I had visited this Lenten season.

Salomon X Trail Run is back and this year would be covering the trails of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone. This year’s event would feature the “Road to Trail” (6K and 12K) and “Mountain Run” (24K and 32K) events. Here are the particulars:
Will you be voting on the Philippines’ 2016 Presidential Elections? Who’s your bet? If you’re like me who is still undecided, the PiliPinas Debates 2016 is our opportunity to get to know them better and this last round really showed us their candid side. For those who are abroad or have not seen the debate live, here’s the full video courtesy of TV5 Philippines:
Tip: You may want to skip the first two hours of the video due to the delayed start. Also, keep watching after the debate for the outtakes on why the debate was delayed.
March came in jam-packed for me as I spent the first weekend of this month in Subic Bay to cover back-to-back-to-back events: Alaska Ironkids, Century Tuna Superbods Underpants Run, and Century Tuna Ironman 70.3. And that weekend started Friday lunchtime! Here’s my behind the scenes account of this whirlwind weekend.
Subic Bay saw some world-class triathlon action last March 06, 2016 as the sport’s superstars gather for the 2016 Century Tuna Ironman 70.3 event. Three-time Ironman Triathlon World Champion Craig “Crowie” Alexander from Australia took the overall title while two-time ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships winner Caroline “Xena” Steffen from Switzerland took the women’s crown.
Sisters Franchezka, Tara, and Samantha Borlain sweeped the girls 06 to 08, 11 to 12, and 13 to 14 age categories, respectively at the recently concluded Alaska Ironkids Triathlon held at the Wow Recreation & Activity Center, Subic last March 05, 2016. The girls 09 to 10 age category went to Kira Ellis.
It had come to our attention that there are some folks blatantly using the 2016 Run United 1 Pacer photo template without permission from the copyright holder to make themselves appear like they’re part of the official pacers for the said event. While some do it for “fun,” it isn’t really fun if somebody gets hurt following a “pacer” when in fact it was just a “poser.” In line with this, I’m giving everyone tips on how to spot the official pacers apart from the wannabes.
