Last week Silliman University in Dumaguete City celebrated its 107th Founders Day with a myriad of activities.

One of them is the annual search for Miss Silliman. This year the College of Mass Communications took the crown followed by the High School Department then the College of Education.

Silliman attracts the most colorful and unusual characters.

With a festive feeling in the air.

It was also a time to visit old friends. Here with Hari batchmates Mr. Dumaguete and Mr. Bindoy.

Here with Hari ng Negros 2005 director Carlo Bernaldez.

But the fun part of the week long celebration are the student booths and open air concerts.

With the Canlaon girls.

With the La Libertad girls and the Prince of Bayawan, Bindoy and Canlaon.

With the original Queen of Negros (Girlfriend of Emman)

The Prince of Canlaon doing his Mr. Bean impression.

Dahan, dahan...masakit kung biglaan...

Don't worry girls there is enough of me to go around. Just be careful around the family jewels.

Eat your heart out Prince of Bayawan.

This is not an endurance race but precision and stamina are essential.

Sorry Bayawan, but I was raised in the land of caves and cliffs, Mabinay.

After roaming the booth area, we trooped to the Cafe Florentina where we met Miss Silliman 1993 Arlene Delloso Uypitching and friend.

But the best part again of the celebration was the food tripping.

Proud to be a Negrense. Forever Hari ng Negros.
