My blog is on TV!

Well, sort of....

A couple of folks have written to tell me that they saw this blog featured in GMA-7's i-Witness late last Monday night. Showing that night was Howie Severino's documentary, Bike-asyon sa Bohol.

To which I might add that these folks must've been extremely dedicated fans of the show becaue the blog address flashed fairly quickly on screen during the end credits.

Some background behind this: Howie posted a comment in my blog a couple of weeks ago asking about biking in Bohol. Apparently, my last jaunt for the previous summer, cycling around Panglao, caught his attention. And so we exchanged tips via blog comments.

And that's it, really. Bike-asyon sa Bohol was quite fun to watch. Howie covered areas I didn't, and so I have new routes to look forward to the next time I visit Bohol. The Barangay Biking (pronounced "bee-king") segment had me in stitches.

Speaking of which, I didn't know my biking posts would have their own audience. It seems some bikers also got inspired to visit Dumaguete because of my previous entries. Who knew?

Wow, I feel so....privileged. Snigger.

  1. I am an avid fan of i-Witness and Howie Severino. :)

    I saw the comments he left on one of your posts. I just didn't know it would be aired on TV (but what else would it be for anyway? stupid me). The Biking segment also did me in. Haha.

    Congratulations! ;)

  7. Thanks for the comments, y'all!

    Shari: do they have reruns?

    Rina: cool! when are you going to Dumaguete? You can actually rent a mountain bike. I can intro you to my friend.

    Marc: only the really fast nightowls caught the flash, I'm afraid. But I'm actually surprised there's a number of them, including Aldinred.

    Sean: if they ever do that (God knows why), they should get that Korean guy from MadTV to play me.
