    Looks like I’ll be arriving just after the “swimsuit presentation” and leaving just before the “Miss Body Beautiful” presentation. I assume these are of the female persuasion… Guess I’ll head down to the frisbee finals in Kaputian and bring my snorkeling gear for a fun filled day! Of course, Asawa Ko could would win all these competitions and is a good thing for the Samal that she will not be present! Cheers to the Samal Is tourism council.

      Great that you can attend some of it. Wish I could.

      Yes, it’s nice to see that there is interest in actually promoting the island, instead of just talk about it. I hope they do a good job with the events, and that it builds from there.
