We awoke yesterday to a sunny day!

Yehey! What a super relief!

So is La Niña over or what?

Best of all, even if we missed seeing the supermoon the other night, we got a glimpse of it the following night. :)

Part of the celebration of the 90th Foundation Anniversary of the Leyte Normal University (LNU) this week was the Search for the Mr. & Ms. LNU 2011 held March 02 (Pre-Pageant) and March 07 (Finals) at the LNU Gymnasium, Tacloban City.

Yours truly was among those invited to pick the winners for the Mr. and Ms. Photogenic award.

Got to admit it was a pleasant break from the usual photography sessions I have been doing of late. ;)

Chosen Mr. and Ms. LNU 2011 were Mr. Allain Budlong and Ms. Cyril Valera.

1st Runners-up were Mr. Rick Kristopher Palencia and Ms. Rhea Mae Portula.

2nd Runners-up were Mr. John Michael Jalayajay and Ms. Sheela de la Cruz.

Mr. and Ms. LNU ’11 Photogenic were Mr. Allain Budlong and Ms. Rhea Mae Portula.

Here are some photos I got…

Due to the nature of their work (they are both cabin crew attendants of an international airline) Fresa and Mike are oftentimes crisscrossing the oceans and can be anywhere in the globe at any point in time.

But even when they decided to tie the knot in Manila, they took time to come home to Tacloban days later to celebrate a postnuptial party with family and friends.

Naturally, there was going to be some fun time and a funshoot!
