A Silver Affair-A A +A
Tuesday, August 12, 2014
It was a rainy day but the skies somewhat cleared up in the evening when Bluewater Maribago had its grand celebration marking 25 years in the resort industry. Kasaulogan sa Bluewater was fun, festive, and fabulous. Frontliners were former Consul General of Austria Arcadio "Dodong" Alegrado, his daughters Julie (with husband Vic Vergara) and June, and son Jovi.
Two huge white tents were set up at the beachfront venue, separated at center with a beautifuly-lit stage. Guests included out of town personalities from the travel/tourism/hospitality industry and friends from the Metro Manila media.
The program proper began with an opening number by the University of Cebu Chorus. A sumptuous dinner prepared by the resort’s resident chefs and several guest chefs, followed. The array of specialties on the table was terrific - a feast for the palate as well as for the eyes. All the chefs put their best foot forward.
Loyal employees were then given recognition for their years of service and also the 25 top travel partners of the resort. Then music artist/director/composer Ryan Cayabyab took centerstage with his group of singers. Music and magic filled the air.
