PMPC’s grand vacation at Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte

Hannah’s Beach Resort & Convention Center is definitely one of the most exciting vacation destinations in Northern Luzon and in the Philippines. Kaya naman well-visited at fully booked ito last summer at patuloy na dinarayo ng ating mga kababayan kahit tapos na ang bakasyon.
Hindi nagpahuli ang Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) na maranasan ang luxury vacation sa paradise beach resort na ito para sa taunang outing at team-building. Situated right in front of the famous Blue Lagoon (Maira-ira Beach) at Brgy. Balaoi, Malingay, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, Philippines, Hannah’s offers both exclusivity and luxury in an overwhelming friendly environment. The Blue Lagoon, with its captivating crystal clear waters and white sand beach, is comparable to Boracay which it was once – pristine and untouched.
Super enjoy ang grupo sa swimming sa Blue Lagoon na sinamahan pa ng beach volleyball.  Hindi lang kinaya ng powers namin pero marami pang pwedeng gawin dito tulad ng snorkeling, mountain trekking, monkey watching,  boating and cruising around the famous Patapat Bridge, watching the breath-taking golden sunset or just plain lazy strolling around.
Inspired by a prior visit to Pagudpud, retired Col. Ricardo Nolasco of the Air Force, the owner of Hannah's Beach Resort fell in love with it and decided to build a private vacation house. Seeing the need for a resort in the area, he eventually developed the property and opened it to the public.
Hannah's Beach Resort is complete with a fully furnished air conditioned rooms and cottages, picnic huts, a restaurant and a multi-purpose hall, swimming pool, a view deck, a gigantic banga, theme park and Disney characters  among others.
Kaya naman super bonding at walang katumbas na kasiyahan  at halakhakan ang   PMPC  sa pamumuno ni Pangulong Roldan Castro nu’ng June 1-3, 2012.
Nawala ang stress at nakapag-rest ang mga miyembro ng manunulat sa loob ng tatlong araw na inilagi sa Hannah’s. Napakalayo man ng Pagudpud ay sulit naman ang pagod sa biyaheng inabot ng 12 hours kapag nakita na ang  blue lagoon beach, ang luntiang bundok at  ang breathtaking views ng Hannah's. Napakaganda ng  umaga paglabas namin sa aming villas dahil nasa   top of the mountain  kami overlooking China Sea.
After ng team building ng PMPC nag-umpisa nang magpalaro. May Pinoy Henyo, Let’s go to the beach,  Singing Contest, Swimming Contest, Sisiran ng money, Beer Drinking (for the boys) at softdrinks (for the girls), Sack Race, Straw race at Volleyball. It’s fun talaga sa PMPC. Umulan talaga ng papremyo.
Sa last night  ng PMPC  sa Hannah's ay nagkaroon ng sing-along after dinner at nag-entertain ang isa sa tatlong singers ng resort, ang 35-year-old cham­pion singing soldier ng Philippine Army, also AMSLAI’s AFP/PNP Search for a Singing Champion na si Wilhelm Celestial. Nagkaroon din ng showdown ang  dalawang Noranian writers  na sina Oghie Ignacio at Ronald Rafer sa kantang 'Kahit Konting Awa'.
Hindi rin namin pinalampas na dayuhin at mag picture-taking sa windmills ng Bangui, Paoay Church at Vigan, Ilocos Sur, on our way home.
Buong puso na nagpapasalamat ang PMPC officers at members sa mga nag-sponsor sa team building at outing ng club na sina Col. Nolasco at  Sen. Bongbong Marcos (para sa sasakyang ginamit ng grupo). Ganoon din sa TAPE executive Malou Choa Fagar, sa King of Talk Show Boy Abunda, Rep. Cynthia Villar, NPC former President/  Jerry Yap, TV Production head in charge of ‘Valiente’, Rams David, talent manager Lito de Guzman, Karen Martinez at Zonnie Espiritu.
 Ngayong tapos nang mag-relax at team building ang club, magiging abala na naman ang PMPC para sa Star Awards for Music  na gaganapin ngayong September at magsisimula na ring mag-screening para sa Star Awards for TV.

Building a robust national ICT infrastructure

The opportunities from digital innovations were accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic as limitations on mobility prompted citizens to accelerate migration to digital spaces. In the Philippines, these changes are evident in the growth of digital payment systems, online meeting platforms, electronic health services, online retail, direct delivery services, and many others. However, with increasing connectivity comes increasing cyber threats. That’s why efficient solutions and infrastructure are essential in combating cyber threats and ensuring business survival. Individually, Filipinos are susceptible to data breaches and privacy violations online. On a societal level, cyberattacks by state or non-state actors on critical infrastructure can undermine national security and impact economic activity. While cyber threats originate online, their consequences can manifest beyond the digital space into our physical lives. These kinds of attacks also have direct economic costs. In fact, f
