I received an email regarding a special pageant sponsored by the Hyehwadong Filipino Catholic Community. The “Ginoo at Bininibing Kalinangang Filipino 2009” will be held on the 4th of October, after Chuseok (the Korean Thanksgiving holiday).
Once again, the Ginoo at Binibining Kalinangang Filipino (Mr. and Ms. Filipino Culture) is being organized for the following objectives:
1. To showcase the best of Filipino culture: dances, songs, language, costumes, beauty, values, and traditions;
2. To highlight the best practices and characteristics of the Filipino migrants in Korea;
3. To provide a venue for cultural sharing and interaction between the Koreans and the Filipinos; and
4. To raise funds for the different programs and outreach activities of the community.
Online voting at SAMBAYANAN and Ticket Sales started last Sunday, Sep. 6, 2009.
There are six Ginoo and six Binibini contestants.
Makipagugnayan lamang po kay Ms. Precy Niebres (010-3212-3100), Chairpersons at Ministry Heads ng HFCC.

You can visit the links above to vote online. Just a warning though, the pictures in the gallery are approximately 1.2MB each and there are six of them.
If you’re in Seoul on the said date, why not support the event? Unfortunately, us myeonneuri (daughter-in-law) will still be busy that day — post Chuseok.
