Local media men turned out in full force as they joined the city’s two congressional representatives, District 1 Congressman Celso L. Lobregat and District 2 Congresswoman Lilia M. Nuño, who tendered their traditional Christmas Party and Gift-Giving for the Media on Dec. 29, at Astoria Plaza.

Some 350 members of the broadcast and print media including correspondents of national dailies and international wire services responded to the invitation of the two solons who joined hands in sharing the Christmas Spirit with them. Also present were studio technicians, cameramen, drivers, and production assistants. Family members of some media men also joined in the celebration.

It was a fun-filled night as media men grouped themselves into radio, television, and print sectors and rendered their Christmas Carols which took the form of a competition.

A new innovation introduced by Congressman Lobregat in the yearly Christmas get-together was the holding of the contest for the MOST INFORMED MEDIA. In this contest,  the media men competed by station or media outlet in answering TRIVIA QUESTIONS about infrastructure projects implemented during Lobregat’s administration as City Mayor such as barangay halls, school buildings, bridges, police and fire stations, road constructions, health centers, etc.  The winners of the Most Informed Media were DXRZ personnel.

Other highlights included the holding of raffle draw where lucky winners went home with major and minor prizes donated by both Congressmen Lobregat and Nuño.

Winners of the top prize consisting of two refrigerators were Rolando Alfonso of DXAS and Jerry Felix of Brigada.

The next major prizes, two washing machines, were won by Nilda Enriquez of Sky Cable and Edwin Delos Reyes of RMN.

Other prizes raffled off included flat-screen TV, Electric Fans, Electric Kettles, Microwave Ovens, Flat Irons, Hot Dog makers, Oven Toasters, Rice Cookers, Air Pots, and Flashlights.

Joining the two congressmen in the Media Christmas Party were Councilors Noning Biel, Charlie Mariano, Jerky Valesco, Mike Alavar, VP Elago, Ismael Musa, Myra Paz Valderoza Abubakar, former City Councilors Rudy Lim and Rey Candido, San Roque Barangay Chairman Joselito Macrohon, former Campo Islam Barangay Chairman Haj Sandag, Taluksangay Barangay Kagawad Lilibeth Nuno, and Kaiser Olaso.  — Lea LM
