Mr & Ms Olive C 2015 National Finals

The fifth annual edition of Mr. & Ms Olive C Model Search has been concluded with the proclamation & coronation of this year’s winners. Bohol was represented by the triumvirate of Alexandra Bangcaya, Geraldine Topsnik & Carlos Alfonso Cerquis who represented the clean, wholesome image of young Boholanos.

Although the highest placement was the Top Ten finish of Carlos in the male category, we are still proud nevertheless of the splendid performances of these young Boholanos. They did their best but in the end, as I always reiterate, winning is dependent also on luck, timing, destiny and the tastes of the judges & organizers.

May the national finals be a memorable learning experience for these three teenagers.

Cheers and good luck in your future endeavors!

Shawarma Returns with a Bang in Bohol

Have you been to the newly- opened Babeng’s Shawarma? It is located right at the corner of Gallares & B. Inting Streets in downtown Tagbilaran City. 

You couldn’t possibly miss the place for two reasons; the place is done in colorful and vibrant colors that seem to leap out and secondly, the long queues that patiently wait for their shawarma.

So what is this Shawarma? Well, for those who have been hibernating in a cave these past few years, Shawarma is a lot like a taco or a nacho but so different in many ways.

Shawarma refers to thinly sliced cuts of meat, like chicken, beef, goat, lamb, and sometimes turkey, rolled into a large piece of flatbread or pita that has been steamed or heated. Inside the pita, foods like hummus, tahini, pickles, vegetables, and even French fries are added.

In the case of Babeng’s Shawarma, it has lots of onions, fresh cabbage & green tomatoes. Think of shawarma as a taco or burrito Middle Eastern style.

So what makes it tick? I guess it has something to do with its novelty, its very affordable price plus a secret ingredient that makes one crave for more
