When I got the call from Tagbilaran's top eventologist LJ Lumayag of K & N Productions inviting me to be a part of the working team behind the summer sports spectacle, little did I realize that it would open new doors for me.
It was an honor to be working side-by-side with the unassuming and self- effacing Ret. Major General Charly B. Holganza, the Overall ExeCom Chair, who was so intent with his vision for the event and for Bohol that we couldn't help but root for him and work beyond what was agreed on.
It was indeed one big event for new opportunities, new friends, new challenges

She knew exactly what she wanted and she says it as it is. No shades of gray for this dynamite.
Mr. Lumayag assigned me the task of overseeing the conceptualization, revisions and production of the Souvenir Programme. After meeting the creative team composed of Ghen Lumayag, Cana Apale, Ian Anino , Mark Aranas and the rest of the gang, we were put to work immediately.
Do we go for the traditional or the new one? How many pages? what kind of printing paper will be used? will it be glossy or matte?
The food especially the breakfast prepared by Maam Nelly Lumayag and the endless cups of coffee and the unlimited supply of Marlboros..

At the end of the day, what matters the most would be the people you work with.
Their being genuine, their being pleasant and fun to be with because when the going gets tough especially when the deadline comes nearer and tempers flare up, what we need are grace under pressure and professionalism.
Surely and undoubtedly, K & N Productions has oodles and oodles of that.
