I'm Almost Famous!

The bloggers from Bukidnon with the GMA7 crew
It never occurred in my wildest dream that someday I would get the the chance to appear on prime time TV. When I started blogging, all I wanted was to share my experiences and images on the road and make it as my online travel journal. Never did I thought that one day, this hobby would give me a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be featured in the multi-awarded GMA7 show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho. Oh yeah! I'm appearing on prime time TV!!!


It was through the referral of our friends from the Pinoy Travel Bloggers community that I, together with two other bloggers from Bukidnon, Bon and Tupe, was chosen by the Jessica Soho crew to be featured in their Summer Special segment titled "Road Trip in Bukidnon". At first, I thought that we will just guide the crew in shooting some of Bukidnon's tourist attractions but then I learned that we would actually appear on the said segment. Wahahaha!!! 

I'm not going to give you more details or spoilers as I am just as excited to watch the telecast itself. For the record, we went river tubing in Brngy. Can-ayan, Malaybalay City, dirt road riding at the Del Monte pineapple plantation in Manolo Fortich, adventure riding in Dahilayan Adventure Park and food tripping in Pinutos sa Kanto, also in Manolo Fortich. The most exciting, thrilling and scream-inducing part of the shoot was the Dropzone in Dahilayan where I and Tupe were made to freefall from a dizzying height of 120-feet. And get this, we did it not just once but TWICE! 

I dare you to take the Dropzone challenge!

Here are some pics taken during the shoot:

According to the crew, telecast of the segment will be this coming Sunday. So don't forget to watch the Summer Special of Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA7 this Sunday, March 24, 2013 at 7:45 PM. I don't really know how we would  look like on that TV feature, but I just hope we did well enough to showcase the beauty of our home province Bukidnon.
