Scene:Â San Isidro town councilor Gloria Gementiza was elected president of the Philippine Councilors League (PCL)-Bohol chapter.
Scene: After ten days, Korean pop star Sandara Park was spotted (again) in Bohol.Â If her last visit (Aug. 8) was purely a â€œvacation,â€ her Thursdayâ€™s visit was filming for Battle Trip, a travel show, with model Hyoni Kang.Â On Instagram, Park posed for photos beside a tricycle in Tagbilaran City. She even showed off her cute toe nails painted with cartoon characters Nemo and Dory while relaxing on a boat in Balicasag Island. Â She left Bohol last Friday (Aug. 19) afternoon.Â Park was a former member of 2NE1.
Losers can turn out to be winners.
Tagbilaranâ€™s Saulog King Festival 2016 Mark Elvin Boiser is one of them.
When he joined a schoolâ€™s search a few years ago, Mark didnâ€™t even make it as one of the finalists.
After a few exposures in modeling, Mark got a nice break as grand winner of Tagbilaranâ€™s SaulogÂ Festival last May 1.Â Heâ€™s making heads turn during the Saulog Festival showing him all grown-up and a bit â€œbolder,â€ with generous parts of his abs exposed.
Mark, a freshman at STI College Tagbilaran who is taking up Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management (BSHRM), wants to become a successful chef.
â€œI love to cook,â€ says Mark, â€œI love Thai cuisine.â€
TAN (The Art Nouveau managed by Khim Gonzales) has big plans for Mark who could be the next big thing if he plays his cards well.
â€œHeâ€™s an aspiring model,â€ says Khim.
So what is sexy to Mark?
â€œReal sexy is being connected to your soul and living boldly,â€ says Mark.
And when he feels sexy? â€œI feel sexy in the morning!â€
What part of a womanâ€™s body does he consider sexiest? â€œEyes!â€
A Pisces (born on March 11, 1992), Mark stands 5â€™8â€; weighs 112 lbs.; and wears medium-sized shirt and briefs and size- 9 shoes.

Where in Bohol should you take Ms. Universe 2016 bets?
As you must have noticed in VRSâ€™s broken “Where in Bohol should you take Ms. Universe 2016 bets?â€ series, more and more Boholanos want to â€œtourâ€ the candidates of Miss Universe, if, that is a big if, they will visit the province in 2017. Here are more of them:
Leah Tirol-Magno (of The Baking Mama)- To the Chocolate Hills and the white beaches.
EJ Relampagos- I will take them to my place and let them feel the authentic Boholano warmth and hospitality together with my neighbors. You know the fiesta vibe…
Vera Villocido Gesite-Â I will bring them to the rolling hills with beautiful and scenic view in San Pascual, Ubay – the future site of the BATRC or Bohol Agricultural Training and Research Center where the agri entrep senior high school teachers and students will be starting to produce organically grown vegetables for the Bohol hotels, resorts and restaurants.
Ferliza Contratista- Bohol takes pride of unadulterated beaches…And Anda is surely the best there is…and a public beach at that. This also goes to show that world class tourist spots need not be classy and expensive, but one that equalizes social stature, no rich, no poor…just man and God’s grandeur at Anda beach.
