Pito Para sa PilipinoA GMA News and Public Affairs SpecialHosted by Richard Gutierrez and Romi GarduceAiring date: March 4, 2012It was a journey that took ten years to complete. And on January 5, 2012 at 6:45 p.m. Antarctica time, Romi Garduce became the first Filipino to climb the seven highest mountains in each of the seven continents of the world. Completing the “Seven Summits” is considered the highest mountaineering feat and Romi Garduce’s success has once again proven that the Filipino is indeed world-class.This March, GMA News and Public Affairs brings together two faces of the Kapuso environment advocacy – Richard Gutierrez and Romi Garduce – for a special television event. Perhaps unknown to many, these two “RG”s have a lot in common. Richard and Romi participate in environmental workon and off camera, and both are outdoorsmen who love to explore nature. In the special “Pito Para sa Pilipino,” Richard Gutierrez meets his idol Romi Garduce in a mountaineering adventure where the younger RG gains valuable insight from the seasoned climber.
“Pito Para sa Pilipino” tells us the stories behind Romi’s Seven Summits quest. Using seven select mementos from his seven successful summits, Romi reveals little known details about his journeys as a mountaineer. And as they exchange stories, Richard finds out about an “omen” in Romi’s dream days before his Antarctica expedition. Richard also discovers what life could be like at icy mountain camps, including some of Romi’s strange “souvenirs” from Antarctica. At the close of their adventure, Romi finally reveals what is perhaps the most meaningful memento from his decade-long quest to create a world record for the Filipino.

Last night’s environmental documentary of GMA-7 entitled “Oras Na” serves an eye-opener, showing how we’re not protecting our environment and how nature’s problems affect our lives, very enlightening.
Sana pwede nila itong ipalabas nang mas maaga para mas mapanood ng maraming Pilipino. Maraming salamat sa GMA-7 sa pagbibigay ng makabuluhang documentary gaya nito. ;)
Oras Na hosted by Richard Gutierrez, aired 20 Nov 2011 in GMA-7.
