My Two Centavo Worth v.08.18.09

LET THE “NGARAG” BEGIN. This week is going to be critical for the Organizing Committee of the 2009 Gensan’s Tuna Festival Experience.  Some of the billboards and vertical tarpaulins are up.  The blue pasandalans have been installed.  The Oval Plaza is already brimming with energy.  This week, the Carnival should be operating.  The Flea Market traders have started pouring in.  Although, the street decors have yet to be installed along Pioneer Avenue, we’re optimistic that the city will be garbed in fiesta mood by opening day on August 31.

-ooOoo-

EVENT MANAGERS’ MOMENT. During the meeting last Friday, each event manager reported the progress of their event’s preparations.  So far, so good.  I just hope that the weather will cooperate this time because nightly activities are scheduled simultaneously at the Oval Plaza Stage and Oval Covered Court.  We are expecting huge crowds to watch the shows.  Our billboards have created quite a stir among the Generals and enthusiasm is growing day by day.  Everything is set and I trust my event managers to deliver great programs.

-ooOoo-

SECURITY MATTERS. This will be City Director Pintac’s baptism of fire.  This is his first Gensan festival as the city’s Police Chief.  We were all eager to listen as he discussed his plans for our week long festivities.  The comprehensive arrangements will include the participation of the men and women from the Philippine National Police, Joint Task Force Gensan, Philippine Navy, Philippine Airforce, CSU and the volunteer NGOs.  Now comes the hard part – IMPLEMENTATION.  Honestly, I’m satisfied with their OPLAN GTX and am hopeful that everything will run smoothly through God’s grace.

-ooOoo-

MARDI GRAS HITS GENSAN. On September 5 beginning at 3pm, the first-ever mardi gras will be ushered in this year’s edition of GTX.   When it comes to the big celebrations that have become synonymous with the Tuna Festival,  Mardi Gras is all about spectacle and jolly atmosphere.  Unlike past street dancing competitions, this time, everyone can join the dancers as they dance around Pioneer Avenue.  The new beat will be played over and over again.  Sound boxes will be installed along the parade route from Pioneer to Roxas Avenues.

-ooOoo-

PARADE OF LIGHTS. Adding glitter to the mardi gras is the Float Parade of Lights.  Seven big floats will be displayed for two hours at Pioneer Avenue while the mardi gras is ongoing.  This will give the Generals a chance to take pictures of the different floats.  By nightfall, the lights in the floats will be turned on that will surely be one SHOCK and AWE experience.  Mayor Jun promised to join the street activities together with the other city officials.  We’ll just have to wait and see then.

-ooOoo-

BACK TO BARRACKS. Maiba muna tayo. I thought that it couldn’t happen.  I’m surprised that it had to take this long for them to realize that they were being treated like tae.  Well, better late than never.   Kanya-kanya silang sumbungan. Nakinig lang si bosing. Eventually, it’s back to barracks for everyone and back to eating humble pie for the top honcho.  There’s a moral lesson here somewhere – magbago ka na, uy!
