It was not the usual beauty pageant emceeing gig for me but nevertheless, a fun & exciting hosting experience just the same last Wednesday, November 28 when I hosted the Formal Opening Ceremony of OBL Gas Station

The gas station which is located in Upper de Lapaz, Cortes, Bohol is an exclusive dealer of Pilipinas Shell Corp. unleaded gasoline and diesoline that help motorists use less energy and lower CO2 emissions

The Lims could not have chosen a perfect date for the blessing. The bright azure skies that added a cheerful vibe to the entire proceedings augur well for another success story to the family.

BLESSING. The affair started with solemn rites officiated by Fr. Delfin Jabines.


Municipal officials of Cortes headed by their top two officials Hon. Mayor Danilo Montero, Hon. Vice- Mayor Iven Lim, Mr. Oscar Lim of OBL Gas Station, Pilipinas Shell Corp. executives Jun Ratilla along with Brgy. Upper de Lapaz Capt. Cospertino Solijon & de Lapaz Brgy. Capt. Procopio Pabotoy led the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony


My good friend, the vivacious OBL Gas Station Manager & businesswoman Leizl Lim Gregorio who looked effortlessly cool welcomed everyone to the event as OBL Gas Station goes full throttle in its commitment to serve the Boholano motoring public with quality customer service and efficient & cost- effective petroleum products. 

As a parting shot, Leizl reminded everyone that Pilipinas Shell IS Quality Fuel

Leizl helped oversee the preparations for the opening as well as gave her inputs for the marketing and publicity blitz for the Lim's latest business endeavor 

A sumptuous buffet including a tempting lechon awaited everyone

Shell FuelSave Unleaded is an efficient Shell fuel designed to help customers save with every tank – at no extra cost.
