Once more, Bank of the Philippine Islands recognized remarkable Filipinos who have made us proud to be Pinoys.

This year's awardees are Charice Pempengco and neurosurgeon Dr. Manny Cacdac who both exemplify world excellence in their chosen fields.

Charice, being recognized today as an international singer, truly give the country a tremendous recognition as she also named as the first Asian to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart.

Though unable to personally receive the award, the young singer promised in a video that she will continue to sing for Filipino people.

Meanwhile, Dr. Cacdac, a neurosurgeon, was acknowledged because of his commitment to serve his countrymen through his Hydrocephalus Foundation of the Philippines.
