"Shoot beyond limits" with the all new Vivo V17 Pro


There was a time when taking selfies was as basic as capturing one’s close-up image, often to highlight an appearance or a spectacular scenery in the background. While selfie shooters yearned to capture more elements in their frames, they were limited mostly by the technology of the front-facing cameras at that time.

In recent years, advancements in optics technology and software development have given birth to front-facing cameras that offer better resolution and image quality, as well as AI-enhanced photography apps. These, in turn, have transformed selfie shooting, from a mere trend, to a skill, even an artform.

Today, companies like Vivo, are taking the lead in pioneering technology that enhances the smartphone experience. This includes taking selfie shooting to new and higher levels.

Just a few months after unveiling its V15 Pro with the world’s first 32MP elevating selfie camera and an AI triple rear camera, the leading global technology company has already launched V17 Pro, the second flagship smartphone in its V series of midrange smartphones.

Now, improving from its predecessor, the V17 Pro boasts of another world’s first, an exclusive pair of front cameras—a 32MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture and 8MP 105-degree super-wide-angle camera—which ensures clearer and fuller selfies, in whatever environment.

Much like the V15’s selfie optics, the V17 Pro’s dual front cameras are tucked behind the smartphone’s notch-less Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display, nestled in a wide pop-up mechanism that elevates as quickly as it retracts.

With the premium smartphone’s dual elevating selfie camera, users will never need selfie sticks to capture “groufies” or the splendid panoramic view behind them. All they have to do is access the super-wide-angle camera and “shoot beyond limits”.

For nighttime selfies, the front camera gets ample support from Selfie Softlight that lights up dark images and an exclusive Super Night Selfie mode which captures and combines multiple frames into one image to make one’s face stand out, especially in low-light conditions.

There is also a “Pose Master” feature which suggest several poses to match various photo scenes and backgrounds, to make one’s selfies even more creative.

Aside from its elevating dual selfie camera and AI powered and enhanced selfie apps, the V17 Pro also boasts of AI quad rear cameras—48MP main camera, 8MP super wide-angle, 2MP bokeh, and 2MP super macro camera—which can capture super macro images from a distance of just 4 cm., and super wide clear images, even in dark surroundings.

Voci Celesti - A Night to Remember

Voci Celesti: A Night to Remember ver 2.0 " is a fund-raising concert of the Saint John Bosco Parish and Center for Young Workers in Santa Rosa, Laguna featuring the Loboc Children's Choir  with the Children & Youth Choir of our parish and  Rev. Fr. Ting Miciano, SDB, on August 17, 2019 at 7pm in Enchanting Events Place of Enchanted Kingdom.

The Loboc Choir started way back in 1980.  Ms. Alma Fernando-Taldo, a fifth grade English and Character Education teacher founded the Loboc Children’s Choir. What started simply as a way to grace the small town of Loboc, Bohol with melodies and festivities eventually became one of the country’s symbols of pride and joy in the world of music. 

Numbering at around 30 gifted children, aged 9-15 years old, they have ventured into the music world to share with the public their unique talents and have since become one of the gems of the country.

Over the course of 39 years, they have competed and won several singing contests, both nationally and internationally, including the “national champion” award in the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) in 1993, 1995, and 2001. Their renowned success led to them being called the “cultural treasure” of Bohol. Eventually, they had their first-ever international tour in Europe in 2006, and from its success, the choir released their cover album, “... And A Child’s Heart Sings.”

Bound by their philosophy to inspire hearts and minds everywhere through music, they also take the time to visit people in homes for the aged, hospitals, orphanages, and prisons, aside from competitions and regular performances for tourists looking for tunes in Bohol.

Also performing are two local choirs of Saint John Bosco Parish.  The first is the Pastol ng Bayan Children's Choir. This group was formed through their three principles of discipline, diligence, and determination, and has been singing every Sunday at the 10:30am mass. In addition to performing in church, they also participated in the “Holiday Cards” Christmas concert in Vista Mall Sta. Rosa, last December 2016. They won 1st Runner-Up in the “Voice of the Village Chorale Competition” in Filinvest City in the same month. 

The other youth choir, the Bosconian Voices Chorale, was formed in 2013.  The chorale currently sings during the 4:45pm Sunday mass. Composed of 15 talented individuals, they also recently had their mini concert last March 2015 entitled “Kapit Tinig sa Iisang Himig”, and they participated in the fund raising “Christmas Cantata” last December 2017.

Music knows no limitations. From various cultures, to geographical boundaries, music has touched the hearts and souls of countless people worldwide. Here in our home country, the Philippines, music remains as an essential aspect of our everyday lives. We sing and we dance for every occasion.  The Loboc Children’s Choir will be performing various tunes made by our fellow countrymen, from our very own shores. They will sing a beautiful rendition arranged by Ed Mangulat of Florante’s “Handog”; “Ikaw ang Mahal Ko”, a wonderful love song arranged by T. Arevalo and I.C. Ongsiako, and is written by National Artist Levi Celerio; a version of the Filipino folk song titled “Katakataka” by Santiago Suarez and Redentor L. Romero; and a rendition from National Artist, Mr.Ryan Cayabyab, and co-arranged by Fr. Arnold Zamora, about loving and caring for the environment, “Take us to the land called Paraiso!”

So come and have fun this coming August 17.  Enjoy the good music and at the same time, participate in this fund-raising campaign of our parish.  Hoping to see all there!!!

What started out as a meek dance contest providing a significant follow through on the onset of Agila The EKsperience in 2016, AGILAKAS GUMALAW DANCE COMPETITION now makes dynamic reception, waves, and recall in the dance community in the Philippines.

Highlighting a patch of patriotism in the dance piece, groups have showcased their interpretation of an original Tats Faustino composition, “Pinoy Magaling Ka” at the end of every team’s performance.

Enchanted Kingdom Chief Operating Officer, Mrs. Cynthia R. Mamon also seated on the panel.

Proving they’re worthy of last year’s tilt, J-Crisis showed an astounding performance that left the crowd in awe and screamed for more with their death-defying stunts. A special performance from A.X.I.S Dance Company brought the house down with their hip-smashing and all-style groove.  

“Elites of God” Reigned Supreme

Oozed out in fascinating costume allied with astonishing acts, sky-high jumps and winding flips and spins, Elites of God reigned supreme and hailed as this year’s champion. The 20-piece, Muntinlupa City-based dance squad took home a trophy, and P25,000 cash.
