Ronnie Liang’s dedication and commitment to achieve a healthy body is paying off big time. He has become leaner which prompted Holistic Integrative Care Center (HICC) to make him their ambassador.

Ronnie used to be overweight. Hearing discouraging remarks about his physical condition made him decide, in 2013, to go on a strict diet. He gave up fatty food (like pork and beef) and even rice. The new physique he achieved after this, earned him the lead role in the acclaimed indie movie (directed by Elwood Perez) “Esoterika: Maynila” screened recently at Teatro in Fort Santiago, Intramuros.

Ronnie’s fifth studio album will be released this year by Viva Records.

Artists celebrating and performing at the Tinagba Festival were the Power 7 Boy Band, Maria Yna Angela Uy, Melai Cantiveros-Francisco, Paul Andre Salas, Bugoy Drilon, Arci Muñoz and young singer Brian Gazmen.

Described as a festival of harvest, Tinagba was also about the progress of the city through the years under the leadership of Mayor Madelaine Yorobe Alfelor. “Harvest” now also means a progressive economy from businesses and investments in Iriga.

The safety of Irigeños has always been the topmost priority of the mayor that a new fire department building was spruced up. And what to look forward to an app especially made for Irigeños. As the mayor explained, if you get kidnapped, lost or experience even life threatening emergencies, using the app would save you. The app is connected to all branches of government in Iriga city.
