Benmore Scotch Whiskey and Borgy Manotoc

Early this November, I made a blog announcing the launching of Benmore Scotch Whiskey here at Baguio. Last November 26, the event pursued and it was a total blast!! Thanks to the Global Noble International Corporation (Official Distributor of Benmore Scotch Whiskey Nationwide)

I was privileged to be one of the bloggers invited to the launching. And it was an honor to be able to be part of such an event and of course to be able to meet the handsome and sexy Borgy Manotoc. He looks so good in pictures and in the television screen and he looks even better in person!! Thinking about the event still makes me kilig up to now!! LOL! He is even nice and very accomodating which gave the launching some extra spice!

Benmore Scotch Whiskey made an excellent choice to have Borgy as their brand ambassador. The brand fits the ambassador well, they're both premium: of exceptional quality.

The launch was somewhat a whole day activity. Borgy had is lunch at the Concoctions Bar and Resto. His interview at K-lite started at around 4:30 in the afternoon and was then followed by a quick snack at Zola Resto and Cafe.

The Press-con was held at the Citylight Bar together with dinner/chillout party where Borgy got to meet us, the bloggers *ehem* and a few guests like Baguio Metamorphosis.

Followed by the chillout party was the dance party and Benmore Scotch Whiskey tasting at the Hex Bar where Borgy, himself, conducted games: dance contest and drinking contest.

It was one heck of a great night! Many guests came and everyone surely enjoyed!

Benmore Scotch could actually be drank straight, on the rocks, or mixed with iced tea, cola, or any soda drink - and you still have that quality taste. And the best thing about Benmore is that it's affordable at P375. It's website is currently in progress for us to know more details regarding this premium drink.

So what drink's better to have this season to warm you up from cold breeze? Grab Benmore and enjoy!

Because Talent Ain't Enough

I'm not boasting, I just want to say, I sing and I can sing.

Just give me this one chance, at least to shout out to the whole world how much I love to sing... to perform.... Some say I'm just loving the praise from everyone; the attention. It actually hurts knowing people who feels this way about people who love to perform. But no, that is not my motif. I just love doing it.

It's all about the beauty of being able to do the things you love to do; That feeling when you get to do something, and you actually enjoy it - being appreciated for it is just extra points - for the real performers actually.

To start, I've been singing ever since I was toddler. I've only got to develop it during my early elementary days due to extra curricular activities. I also started to take voice lessons (classical approach) to develop it more. But I don't remember how long I took voice lessons and how old I was that time.

Sadly, I had to stop taking up voice lessons because I was kind of hard up already with my studies especially when I participate in a lot of our extra curricular activities at school that time.

Fast forward to highschool: I got to join our school choir which was very significant for me. It was also a nice experience getting to know more of the singing community; people who share my passion in the particular talent that God has given us.

But the joy of being able to perform with this group didn't last. Issues came along with this group and I had no choice but to leave the group because it was destroying my leadership responsibilities in the student council as well as my academic persistence.

Lucky was I that our school had a lot of extra curricular activities which allowed me to perform from time to time. But beyond those times I didn't get any chance at all.

I really wanted to perform at outside school activities. But then I'm really a very committed student so I really had to keep my student responsibilities as my priorities.

Fourth year high school: the year where me and my batchmates became busy applying for college examinations. We were caught up with the thought of deciding which career to pursue for our upcoming college life. And yes, I wanted to take up music as my career. Or maybe performing arts. Because I knew if I worked with my passion then I'd be happy and successful.

But then reality struck me at the last minute. Performing arts wasn't a real career as what people say. They said I didn't have a good future in line with that career. They told me how I may be successful at first but in the long run I'd lose the gist of it all.

So being practical, I decided to lay away with my dream career and go with the courses that would mean "successful" in the long run.

Looking back up to that day: it still hurts my heart. Thinking of how many times I gave up chances to do my passion as a living for me for the reason that it isn't enough to support my living. Somehow, I regret having to decide on that. Up to now I still crave to do more on my passion. Sadly, I can't do that because of different matters.

But then, I'm still thankful that I get to go do karaoke with friends and family. Often I even sing myself out at home just to do what I love the most.
