Jul 30, 2017

LINGAYEN, PANGASINAN – To promote awareness and understanding of ASEAN to Pangasinenses, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) conducted a youth forum and staged fashion show at the Convention Hall of PSU-Lingayen Campus.
Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Undersecretary and PIA Director General Harold Clavite graced the event which was attended by more than 800 students and teachers from Pangasinan National High School (PNHS), Pangasinan State University (PSU), and STI-College Dagupan.
The conduct of an ASEAN youth forum and the repeat of the ASEAN fashion show is one of the information dissemination initiatives of PIA that raises awareness about ASEAN opportunities that the public can utilize.
Jennilyne Role, regional director of PIA-Region 1, said “the PIA is conducting various advocacy activities to inform the people of what ASEAN is and its underlying advantages to our country and to the Filipino community as a whole.”
On the other hand, costumes of the 10 member countries of ASEAN were presented and modelled by students of STI-College who are members of HCA Productions headed by Harvie Aquino.
“PIA conducted a fashion show to promote appreciation and recognition of the 10 member-states in South East Asia which include Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam,” said Role.
In the fashion show, the model for Brunei Darussalam used a traditional Malay costume called “Baju Kurung”, which is loosely translated as “enclosed dress.”
Model for Cambodia worn a traditional costume called “Sampot”, a woman’s long skirt with a fold or pleat in the front.
For Indonesia, the costume presented was Kebaya, a traditional blouse-dress combination while for Lao PDR a traditional garment called “Sinh.”
Model for Malaysia dressed up with a “Punjabi suit” while Myanmar used a national dress called “Longyi.”
Philippines’ model is dressed with a terno, a traditional dress for Filipina that is worn on formal occasions.
For Singapore, the clothing used Cheongsam or long dress, while Thailand and Vietnam used “Chut Thai” and “Ao Dai” respectively.
During the event, PIA also installed a mobile information kiosk that featured information materials about ASEAN and other government programs.
A people-oriented and people-centered ASEAN; peace and stability in the region; maritime security and cooperation; inclusive and innovation-led growth; resiliency; a model of regionalism, and a global player–these are the thematic priorities and vision of ASEAN and its member countries.
On August 8 this year, ASEAN will mark its 50th anniversary here in the Philippines. EMBS/PIA-Pangasinan / ABN
