STA’s alumni day


Hundreds of alumni of St. Theresita’s Academy trooped to the school ground in Silay City, Negros Occidental, recently to celebrate the 81st foundation day of their alma mater, and their homecoming, titled “FeaSTAval: A Celebration in Gratitude of Our Yesterdays, Today and Tomorrow”.

This year’s homecoming was headed by the silver jubilarians of elementary batch 85 and high school batch 89.

After the Eucharistic mass officiated by Fr. Ronald Quijano, Mayor Jose Montelibano gave a welcome and solidarity speech. The next day, the traditional parade around the city was joined by alumni batches, led by drum beaters and Silay Hugyaw dancers. The school playground was transformed into a carnival, with colorful buntings hanged everywhere.

Highlight of the cultural show in the evening were presentations of the batches. The silver jubilarians opened the program wearing beautiful masks. It was a very successful alumni homecoming.

Batch 1990 will be the host next year.

Remember: God can change our blunders into wonders. Our greatest privilege is to enjoy Christ’s presence.*

Negrense reggae singer
wows ‘The Voice’ judges

Negrense singer Kokoi Baldo not only made the four coaches of “The Voice of the Philippines”' Season 2 turn their chairs around, he also made them dance along his rendition of Matisyahu's ''One Day'' during the blind auditions that premiered Sunday, ABS-CBNnews.com reported.

The 35-year-old dad is a reggae singer in Boracay. Asked how he got into reggae, the dreadlocked, barefooted performer said his mother used to sing Bob Marley while doing the laundry, the report also said.

Coach Apl.de.ap was so impressed he even requested to jam with Baldo, that was later on joined by ''Voice'' coaches Sarah Geronimo and Lea Salonga, who described Baldo’s performance as “halimaw”.

After much wooing from all coaches, including Bamboo Mañalac, Baldo chose to be on Team Sarah.

The report said that at the end of the blind auditions, each team will have 14 artists, and the top 56 will then be named, including stolen artists for each team.

The first episode was graced by an opening performance from Geronimo and Salonga, who sang "Run the World" by Beyoncé, followed by Mañalac and apl.de.ap, for "Ten Feet Tall" by Afrojack. They all then performed a mash-up of the two songs.

The premiere episode also dominated online conversations. "The Voice” Season 2 is hosted by Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano, with Alex Gonzaga and Robi Domingo as V Reporters, the report added.*
