I thank friends and loved ones who continually support me in my cause- voluntourism and eco-tourism. I also want to thank GMA News TV for giving me some airtime to promote the things that I’m passionate about.
So for posterity’s sake I’m posting this on my blog:
Last July 26 before I went to Baler for a Surf and Camp tour, I was interviewed by two crews from GMA News TV. First was REEL TIME and then unexpectedly, BRIGADA.
REEL TIME presents “ISLA JOMALIG”
Sa yaman ng kalikasang taglay ng isla ng Jomalig sa Quezon, paraiso itong maituturing. Pero sa kabila ng malinis at mayaman nitong karagatan at mala-ginto nitong buhangin, tila isang sumpa rin ang angking kagandahan.
Jomalig ang nangunguna sa listahan ng mga bayang may pinakamataas na malnutrition rate sa buong bansa. Ayon sa tala ng National Nutrition Council, tinatayang 3 sa bawat 10 bata sa Jomalig ang malnourished. Pero kaakibat din ng malnutrisyon ang iba pang problema ng isla.
Ngayong Linggo sa Reel Time, kilalanin ang bayan ng Jomalig. Tatawirin natin ang malawak na karagatan para tunghayan ang kanilang kalagayan.
This was their FB cover for the Jomalig episode.

Thanks Sir Ely Del Rosario, Ms. Shera Teves and the rest of REEL TIME crew! Thanks also goes to Ms. Lia del Castillo for connecting me to Sir Ely.
BRIGADA reports on “Dolphins in Captivity”
Then after just an hour, a researcher from Brigada contacted me and asked if I can spare some time for a short interview for their episode about “dolphins in captivity” because a week ago a baby dolphin died in Ocean Adventure Subic Bay, the same time I uploaded video of dolphins enjoying their freedom. I think GMA News TV saw the video so they interviewed me about my encounters with dolphins in the wild.
You can watch the complete episode below:
You can see me at 13:12 🙂
Here’s a BTS shot from my friend AG Saño of Dolphins Love Freedom whom I really respect when it comes to issues like these. (Nag-change outfit pa ako nyan para medyo pogi sa tv) 😉
Thanks Ms. Gen Sta. Ana and the rest of the BRIGADA Staff for thinking about me while doing your research.
PS. I didn’t put any make-up on. The skin tone is natural- #surfer ‘m/
