Photo of a UFO sighting in Baguio City is FAKE

I received a photo tag on Facebook and was asked if this photo is the same as the FAKE UFO photo in Cavite.

After analyzing the photo that is posted by Facebook user Arielle Avila, I confirm that the photo she posted is FAKE. I told her to stop posting this non sense content because it causes panic already to some people, especially to Baguio residents.

Yes, that’s me wearing a Darth Maul costume and beside me is Jaja in Padme costume, and ohh behind us is a Clone trooper and Darth Vader. Its obvious that the theme of the party is Star Wars, and this is line with the promotion of Globe’s Star Wars Everyday promo, the Galactic Celebration event and also the Globe Platinum Broadband.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens mania in SM Mall of Asia + ride the life size X-Wing starfighter


Star Wars fans will go crazy when they see the life size scale of this X-Wing starfighter, lifted from the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. We’re so lucky that we have this now parked at the atrium level of SM Mall of Asia, I’m glad they launched it here in Manila and we are no longer required to travel to Singapore to visit another life size scale X-Wing starfighter that docks inside the Changi Airport.
