They came. They saw. They were conquered.
These names may mean nothing to you but for Bariles, he owes these people who are a mix of famous and soon-to-be-famous bloggers (in their own niches), a whole world of gratitude for heeding his call to join his bi-annual project – the Soccsksargen EXperience Tour or now known this time as the SEX Tour 3 from September 1 – 5, 2011.
As expected, these bloggers, were all blown away with the exciting eco-industrial-tourism spots they visited for four and 1/3 days and amazed at the numerous gastronomic pleasures laid out for them in each pit stop…. basically the same reactions of those who joined the SEX Tour 1, SEX Tour 2 and their precursor, the Soccsksargen Summer Safari.
For its third conduct, Bariles teamed up again with Ganda Ever So Much under the tutelage of the group which he co-founded, the Soccsksargen Bloggers. The SEX Tourists, most of whom had to fly in from Manila, or travel by land from Davao were made to taste and try out for themselves the best tourism destinations of the provinces of Sarangani and South Cotabato and the cities of Koronadal and General Santos.
Bariles and Ganda Ever also timed it with the 13th Tuna Festival to make it hugely special and memorable for the visitors.
Here below is a photo of some of the SEX Tourists taken by ace photographer Omar Gallinero of Montage Digital Photography found at the 2nd floor of the Atrium of Gaisano Mall of GenSan. Thanks to him and to photographers Ronald Rivera and Ramil Blahc Chio. Judging from the smiles of these bloggers in the photo, Soccsksargen really charmed them BIG TIME!
Thank you to Blogger Alexis Chua for the SEX Tour 3 poster above and for modelling it together with Hannah Garchitorena and Mr. GenSan 2010 Jenel Labiana.
Leaving you with another photo of some of the SEX Tourists, this time shot by Omar Gallinero at the Terrace of Port Cafe at Gaisano Mall of GenSan.
