Miss Tourism Bukidnon 2013

Last night was a very GOOD night for all of us because Pangantucan Bukidnon won Miss Tourism 2013. Yes, my cousin, our representative/candidate for the Search for Miss Tourism Bukidnon 2013 brought home the CROWN and we are so proud of her.

Kor Jeanne Evangelista-Garces was crowned Miss Tourism Bukidnon 2013 last night with 2 minor awards, Miss Photogenic and Best in Swimsuit attire. The Pageant was held in Folk Art Theater Provincial Tourism of Bukidnon and the place was FULL of people from all over Bukidnon. The event started on time and I am glad I was seated in the front rows.

When the event started, I was so nervous and overwhelmed at the same time. This is the second time I attended a pageant that my cousin has joined. The first time was during the Search for Miss Pangantucan. During the event, my heart pumps so fast because I am very proud for my cousin and nervous for the result. Of course, I want her to WIN the crown and I believe that she could do it but still, there are a lot of things to consider that is why I am really scared for her. But everything WENT WELL, and I want to thank God for a very successful event for all of us.

Let me share some photos during the event here in my post and if you want to see all the photos during the event, you can FIND IT HERE.

The Margarette – Maramag Hotel

There is a new business hotel in Maramag Bukidnon — The Margarette, and because a friend owns it, I checked the place out and I am pleased with what I have seen.

This is the lobby, sorry I must have missed out some other views of the lobby but the lobby is very inviting so I made a quick pose.
This is what their rooms looks like inside (my dear friend hunny obliged to pose for me):
IMG_5616I love hotels/inns that has huge mirrors inside the room, so I love The Margarette for putting this one in here:

This is the hallway and we asked the one who gave us the tour inside the business hotel to take our photos together:
It is not a five-star hotel but I know staying in The Margarette will be comfortable for you and your business partners or family.

Snack Time : KRRAGS

CHOW TIME at KRRAGS! I don’t know why this place was called KRRAGS but I got a feeling that it is an acronym for all the names of the owners or the first letters of the first name of their children.

I am loving their BURGERS. They have chicken burger, pork burger and beef burger and I love all of them! They also serve leche flan, batchoy and shakes!

Me and my friends spend a lot of time talking and eating in KRRAGS.


Their food are not that expensive and even students can afford it! If ever you are in Maramag Bukidnon, visit KRRAGS and try out their Burgers for only 35php.

The Overview

When our new car arrived, my father couldn’t help it, he wanted to test drive it. So we went to The Overview located in Quezon Bukidnon. We traveled for almost 2 hours I think, from our place (Pangantucan Bukidnon) before we reached the place.

The Overview is named “Overview” for the reason that it is higher than any other places located near it. You can view a lot of things when you are at the top. Here is a picture of me and my daughter:

The view is great here. SEE????

I mean, hey, you could almost see everything up here.

Monastery of Transfiguration

If there is one thing that is Holy about Bukidnon that is the Monastery of Transfiguration in Malaybalay Bukidnon. The place is so solemn that most of the schools prefer to have their students’ recollections in that place. Guests and visitors can have breakfast with the monks at the Monastery every first sunday of the month, I guess, or I should ask them again about it because I am not so sure if it is first or second Sunday of the month.
Most of the people I know who lives in Bukidnon had their weddings at the Monastery of Transfiguration. I have attended 5 weddings in the church I believe and the last one was just last month.

I even thought of having my wedding in the said place too. Aside from the fact that it is a good venue to make my promise of love to the one God has chosen for me, it has also a beautiful scenery.

If ever you visit Bukidnon or perhaps you took the road from Cagayan de Oro to Davao City, take a left turn at San Jose, Malaybalay Bukidnon and visit the Monastery of Transfiguration. Get to know God at the most silent place you could ever visit.
