Chirstmas comes early in the Philippines. When September hits, it is said that the “-ber” months are here and it gives license to every radio DJ to start playing Christmas songs on radio.
In Bohol, days before December hit, in the island paradise of Panglao, the Bluewater Resorts Panglao hosted thier yearly, “Walk Among Stars,” a benefit dinner concert for the benefit of public elemmentary schools of Danao and Looc districts of Panglao, Bohol, and the Bantay Dagat whale shark conservation group.
Bluewater Resort Panglao’s Aplaya restaurant hosted a delectable dinner that did not dissapoint. Food was plentiful and the atmosphere was excellent for a relaxing Friday night dinner.
The dynamic Raul Gatal of the Bohol Chronicle hosted the event making way for the performances of the cool bossa notes of Jam 403, and the enchanting Thailand Interational Choral Singing Bronze awardees, the Holy Name University Chorale.
The highlight of the evening was of course the lighting of the path of stars which spans the walkway between the resort entrance all the way to the Aplaya. And within the resturant itself a giant christmas tree of native Filipino motif.
Filipino Christmas Lanterns, parol, of all sizes and magnificent colors were spread as a small galaxy where one can walk around and enjoy constellation after constellation of stars heralding the Christmas season. There were lanterns in the garden and lanterns over hammocks, benches and garden chairs. Stroll and lose track of time, these are the perfect things to do at the Bluewaters Resort Pangalo, come see for yourself.
