Our beautiful city of Cagayan de Oro is located at the northern part of Mindanao. That is around 789 kilometers away from Metro Manila. One and a half hours via airplane. For short, our city is far from the country’s capital. Basically, we are located in the province. This means that having a press conference in our city for a movie doesn’t happen all the time. So if a rare opportunity comes, I think that is blog-worthy!
Though I was invited to join, due to unexpected circumstances, I wasn’t able to go at the last minute. Good thing, my ever-reliable photographer was able to attend in lieu of me. To be honest, this is one event I don’t want to miss out! I practically grew up with the star of this movie! But it was not mine for the taking. Nonetheless! I am still going to blog about it! Why? Because it’s blog-worthy!
