Isda ng PAGASA
On 23 May 2015, STC was invited as Guest and Resource Person for the teleradyo program of Dr. Carl Balita called Telenegosyo. The Episode for the evening was aptly called “Isda ng PAGASA.” Topic revolved aroung Pag-asa Island>1 of the 9 islands inhabited by Filipinos in the Spratley’s. This is the only island inhabited by civilians; the others just by military personnel. Livelihood on this island is primarily fishing and drying of fish. Idea of Carl is to match supply with demand; thus, the role of PAGASA Member-stores to sell the dried fish out of Pag-asa Island. Col. Marlo Patria/Deputy Spokesperson for the AFP and PRA/PFA’s Ms. Bing Limjoco completes the cast for the evening’s discussion on how to make life on Pag-asa Island more sustainable and easier for its inhabitants. Selling of multi-colored sand from Pag-asa in little bottles and labeled as selling “Bottles of Hope” was discussed in detail and elicited much response from viewers/listeners.
