TWENTY- FIVE YEARS OF PAGEANT HOSTING
This year, Your Blogger will mark a milestone in his life. It will be 25 years since I hosted my very first beauty pageant. It was year 1989 and I was then the president of the English Club and the former Fiel Angeli Araoarao now Mrs. Gabin wa the vice- president.
FIRST PAGEANT HOSTING EXPERIENCE
We were both summoned to the Dean's Office where we got informed that we were to emcee the 1989 Miss College of Arts & Sciences Search of DWCT. I was both excited and nervous at the same time because I never had any prior hosting experience. I still remember that unforgettable night of the pageant when my calm and modulated voice belied the state of nervousness that I was in. In fact, both my hands were shaking when I was interviewing the girls onstage.

After that pageant, there was no looking back and to this day, I still consider myself lucky for having the best mentors like Ma’am Rose “Baby” Sarabosing and for being given the best breaks.
