my coverage: Viewing party of The Amazing Race Season 4 at Embarcadero in Legaspi City

tara party collage
The viewing party and a concert inside a mall by the bay and infront of a great view of Mayon Volcano, the event was held last night at Embarcadero de Legazpi and it was well attended by teens and adults who gave support to our Philippine team for The Amazing Race Asia season 4. The night opens with a viewing marathon of past episodes of The Amazing Race Asia season 4, It was a chance for me to watch the 1st episode, because at home, I usually go home late night and miss the show after arriving infront of my tv set.

I started to become a fan of our Philippine team and as well to other teams who are competing for the race and challenges of season 4. The viewing party event is a celebration for everyone for the success of the show and including the Philippines as one of the pit stop of the race, people in Legazpi City are happy to see that their city was shown on regional countries and heavily promoted by AXN, wow! ganda ng tv ad ng Misibis Bay and Embarcadero at Legazpi City.

The event is hosted by Rovilson Fernandez and Kat Alano, we know that Rovilson is one of the team Philippines from the season 2 of The Amazing Race Asia, he teamed up with Mark Nelson on that season. Here they introduced to everyone our Philippine team, Richard and Rich, also known as the Richards.

The Embarcadero de Legazpi is a mall by the bay, they have restaurants and stores inside, the light house-like structure above the building has a zipline that crosses over the sea into another area.

Lani said that it was a good advantage for her team with Jess as Philippines is the next pit stop, and Rich told us that they are the only team that tried and finished the pig challenge, catching pigs in a muddy ground is difficult and Im glad they Rich finished it.

Rich explains how he catch all those pigs

and Richard tells everyone how hard are the challenges and still say that they will not quit, because they are in Philippine mother land and must face the challenge, and here we have Lani Pillinger screaming that she's a Bicolana, her mom is from Bicol.

Ely Buendia rocks the stage after the viewing party, it was a special performance as a solo artist, he perform sets from the Eraserheads album and also a song that he collaborated with Francis M. The crowd went wild after Ely sang those Eheads song, and went back on stage to do another encore Eheads song.
