MANILA, Philippines — Cavite is known to be the historical capital of the Philippines because it is the birthplace of Philippine independence.

Another history is being made in the province as Caviteña Hacel Bartolome continues her journey to be the first Wishcovery Grand Champion.

Caviteños gave a warm welcome to Wishful grand finalist Hacel in her hometown concert, Monday, in Bacoor Strike Gymnasium.

“Syempre, si Hacel may puso and then born to be a singer. Golden voice of Cavite!” said members of Acers, Hacel’s fans club.

(Of course, Hacel has a heart and is born to be a singer, golden voice of Cavite!)

“Lodi ng buong Cavite. Iyan kasi nga iyong boses niya talagang mapapa-ahh, mapapa-ganun ka talaga,” they added.

(She’s Cavite’s idol because her voice is unique.)

Hacel said the love she received from her kababayans gives her more reason to fight for the win in the grand finals.

“Sobrang saya po tsaka sobrang di ko talaga inasahan. Ang daming tao. Ang daming sumupport po,” said Hacel.

(I’m so happy and I really did not expect it. There are a lot of people and supporters. I think I need to win. I need to push. Apart from giving my best, I need to fight. We will fight in the grand finals.)

“Parang kailangan ko nang manalo. Kailangan ko nang ma-push. Kailangan ko nang talagang bukod sa ibigay iyong best ay kailangan ko na pong lumaban. Lalaban po tayo sa grand finals,” she added.

Some of Cavite’s homegrown artists and bands were also present in the event including Jireh Lim, Shantidope and Plethora.

Meanwhile, as part of Wish 107.5’s thanksgiving for its 2-million Youtube subscriber-milestone, the station also granted wishes of Caviteños.

These include Gervacio Titong’s wish for a wheelchair for her mother.

“Pagsulat ko doon, naiyak ako talaga. Sobra talagang aking ano kay Mama. Naawa ako,” said beneficiary Gervacio Titong.

“Pwede ko na siyang ilabas-labas, ipasyal-pasyal kasi itong malaking bagay sa kanya kasi mahirap din pong buhatin siya kasi mabigat. Pasalamat talaga ako sa [Wish] 107.5 na binigyan ako ng oportunidad … ng wheelchair po,” he said.

(When I wrote it, I was really crying. I really pity my mother. Now, I can bring her outside the house. This is a big help for her because she is also hard to carry because she is heavy. I really want to thank [Wish] 107.5 for giving me an opportunity to have a wheelchair.)

Wish FM also fulfilled Renan Perez’s aspiration to watch Morissette’s upcoming first major solo concert.

“Nagustuhan ko talaga iyong singing prowess niya. Isa siya sa naa-admire ako sa mga kumakanta lalo na siya, bago pa kaso siya eh. Nakikita ko na talaga na magaling talaga siya. Ang Wish ko po sa Wish 107.5, bale more power and good luck sa lahat ng mga projects nila,” said the wisher.

(I really admire her singing prowess. She’s one of the artists that I really admire especially that she is new in the industry. I can really see that she is great. My wish for Wish 107.5 is more power and good luck to all their projects.)

Meanwhile, watch out the Wishcovery team as it tours to Carmela Ariola’s hometown—Batangas – next. – Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue

Cavite gov’t cancels Sangley Airport redevelopment plans with Chinese firm, Macroasia

Robie de Guzman   •   January 27, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Cavite provincial government has cancelled the joint venture agreement to develop the $10-billion Sangley Airport with China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) and Lucio Tan’s Macroasia Corporation, Governor Jonvic Remulla said on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, Remulla said the provincial government’s Special Selection Committee has recommended the non-approval of the redevelopment of the former airbase as presented by the applying parties “due to various deficiencies” in the submission of requirements.

His office accepted and approved the recommendation on Tuesday, January 26, he added.

This means that the notice of award issued to Macroasia and CCCC for the project to develop Sangley Airport into an international gateway last February 2020 has been cancelled.

Remulla, however, noted that talks about the project with “any qualified partner” will restart and “hopefully have a successful negotiations” by October 2021.

“I still believe that a new international airport is important for the country in the long run and it must be stressed that cancellation is not in prejudice of anyone applying again,” he said.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Macroasia confirmed it received notification on January 27 about the cancellation of notice of selection and award.

The consortium of Macroasia and CCCC were the sole bidders for the Sangley Airport development project when the bidding opened in December 2019.

In August last year, the CCCC was among the Chinese firms blacklisted by the United States for their involvement in Beijing’s reclamation of maritime features and militarization of the South China Sea islands.

The government, however, gave the go signal for the airport project despite the sanctions imposed by the United States against the company.
