These UAAP athletes took flight and now glide in the skies

Following former UST, PBA, and ABL skipper's Jeric Fortuna's exit from the basketball court to pursue a dream in becoming a pilot, he now follows several athletes who also have decided to venture in the aviation industry.  The former Growling Tigers captain may soon be called captain twice, once he completes his training and required flight hours to become a licensed pilot, following former teammates Khasim Mirza and AC Marquez.     First flight with capt @odlanyer_p ✈️ #pinaikot #nakakahilo A post shared by Jeric Fortuna (@jericfortuna_) on Dec 1, 2017 at 11:09pm PST Much like Fortuna, Udoy Belmonte, a key member of the UST championship teams in the early 1990s and a former PBA player with San Miguel Beer, became a pilot for Philippine Airlines a few years back and had never thought twice since.     Former UP Lady Maroon Southlyn Ramos meanwhile took to the skies as a flight attendant for Philippine Airlines.  Ramos applied for the job in 2014, took a couple of months training as was already in the skies by 2015. She said that she just decided to give the job a try, since she had already played her last volleyball game. Despite the arduous application process, she added that she was thankful she passed. "I have been enjoying seeing new places and meeting new people everyday," Ramos said in an online interview.   💯K.I.L.I.G 😍 #parangmayspark 🤩 A post shared by Southlyn Legaspi Ramos ✈️ (@southramos) on Nov 15, 2017 at 9:16pm PST   One of the more recent entries to the aviation industry is former Lady Archer Cyd Demecillo who played with De La Salle from 2010-16.

ASIAN GAMES: Pinoy mountain bike best finish sixth in downhill event

SUBANG, Indonesia — The Philippines' John Derrick Farr and Leah Belgira settled for identical sixth-place finishes in mountain bike cycling’s downhill event, where host Indonesia exploited a tremendous home-field advantage to sweep the gold medals offered in the sport on Monday in the 18th Asian Games. Farr, 22, finished eight seconds slower that gold medal winner Khoiful Mukhib, who won gold in two minutes and 16.687 seconds. Belgira, also 22 and an Asian Games first-timer like Farr, was 22 seconds off another local bet, Tiara Andini Prastika (2:33.056). “It was a pure home-court advantage,” said Oscar “Boying” Rodriguez, PhilCycling’s MTB commission chairman who also worked the race as an International Commisaire for the cycling discipline. Organizers allowed only one track walk and a tight three-hour practice ride for all foreign riders on the eve of the competitions, while the Indonesians, as hosts, had the luxury of making the course their home for the last three months. “Had we ridden the course several times, we could have done better, if not vied for the podium,” said Farr, who bagged a bronze medal as a junior in the 2014 Asian championships Indonesian hosted in Sumatra. For Guimaras pride Belgira, her sixth-place finish was more than enough to fuel her passion forn the event even more. “I will train some more and focus on competitions like the Asian Games,” she said. Chinese-Taipei’s Chiang Shengshang (1.493 seconds behind) clinched silver and Thailand’s Suebsakun Sukchanya (1.762 behind) bagged bronze in the men’s contest. It was a 1 and 3 finish for Indonesia in the women’s race with Nining Porwaningsih (9.6-8 behind) completing the podium behind silver medalist Vipavee Deekaballes (9.598 behind) of Thailand. Members of the Philippine secretariat in Jakarta, meanwhile, earned applause for their conscientious effort to have the bikes of Farr and Ariana Thea Patrice Dormitorio brought here in time for the races. Philippine Secretariat Head Arturo Aro made sure the bikes — which were bumped off from the Philippine Airlines flight that was cancelled because of the NAIA mess caused by a Xiamen Airlines plane last Friday — reached the athletes in time for their competitions. Dormitorio was glad to train on her personal bike on Monday after making do with a bike and cycling shoes lent to her by the host federation. Dormitorio and Nino Surban will race in MTB’s cross country on Tuesday......»»

From koalas to high-rises: Brisbane is in motion

  Koalas and kangaroos were on our mind even before the Philippine Airlines flight took off for Brisbane.   It was the first time for many of us in the group to visit Australia, and we were raring to visit the koala sanctuary.   Opened almost a century ago, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (708 Jesmond Road, Fig Tree Pocket, Brisbane) is one of Australia's oldest and ranks high on the list of Brisbane's tourist stops.   Visitors can ogle the sleepy-looking marsupials perched on poles or nestled in the crook of a tree, munching on fresh eucalyptus leaves. The sprawling sanctuary on the banks of the Brisbane River is also home to lorikeets, ...Keep on reading: From koalas to high-rises: Brisbane is in motion.....»»

Batangas escape offers best paella, Iberian chicken, freshly picked salads

From the air, Manila is an irregular sprawl of swill and turpitude, a cloud of smog hanging over it like the mushroom of detonation. I've honestly not flown enough recently to say conclusively whether or not Philippine Airlines deserves its four-star rating. It does deliver in the things that really count, such as planes not falling out of the sky and keeping passengers well-fed. On the newer planes, the in-flight entertainment system is top-notch and is comparable to those on the Gulf carriers, but on older planes you get, well, nothing. And the seat selection process, when you buy tickets online and pony up $5 just to get an aisle seat in Economy---an aisle seat in the center ...Keep on reading: Batangas escape offers best paella, Iberian chicken, freshly picked salads.....»»
