Filipinos top Asian Talent Showdown

Asian Talent Showdown winners with Leisure World staff

THREE Filipino performers emerged as champions in the Asian Talent Showdown of Leisure World Club Hong Kong (LWCHK) in cooperation with Gen-Ex Cargo.
The event was held last Jan. 27 at the Leisure World Club in Wan Chai.
Filipina contestant Angel Pintac bested 14 grand finalists with her sensual dance with a unique twist: lighted candles.
Wilma Balwit and Agapita Parantar were named 1st runner up and 2nd runner up respectively.
Event organizer Annaliza Torralba, who co-hosted the grand finals, explained that the competition was aimed at bringing together Filipinos and Indonesians to showcase their unique talents and help boost their self-confidence.
Leisure World Club Hong Kong, a subsidiary of Leisure and Resorts World Corporation (LRWC), began its operations in February last year, and is the first Philippine-owned company to introduce wholesome recreation through electronic bingo.
Gen-Ex Marketing Director and Leisure World Club Manager Vinson Gonda, who also co-hosted the event, expressed gratitude for the support of the Filipinos and Indonesians. Asked if there is a planned Asian Talent Showdown Season 2, his answer was “just watch out.”
Scores of the winners were a combination of 80 percent from the judges and the 20 percent from the number of new members the contestant can refer to Leisure World Club, for a total of 100%.
