Gen. Santos City’s premier home-away-from-home, the East Asia Royale Hotel joins the city in celebrating the Kalilangan Festival with not 1, not 2, but 3 Street Parties at their Arcade Parking lot.

First to regale GenSan’s party people with their kind of music are reggae band Brownman Revival and the country’s R&B Prince Jay-R in a concert sponsored by Sun Cellular dubbed, what else but “SUN INVASION”.

Tickets are priced at only P100 for this February 22, 2008, Friday affair designed to kick-off the long weekend of partying fun for the Kalilangan 2008 Festival.

This is one event am not gonna miss because after my first trip to Boracay in the 80s where most of the tunes played were reggae, I got hooked to it!  And although am not a fan of Jay-R, his repertoire of rhythm and blues is something am looking forward too.

I just need to ask somebody to take over my judging chore that night at the oval plaza for this Binibining Masayahin Pageant Search organized by the Golden State College.

Or maybe, I could finish  that one first and proceed to the street party later.  Yeah, why not?!  This is gonna be one busy Friday for me.
