Saturday, September 27, was a jampacked day.
First, got to visit Shakey’s in Tomas Morato to pay half of my pamangkin’s post-birthday party on October 4. Since Omakase is just adjacent to the pizza parlor, I had my lunch there with yummy makis.
Secondly, I had to go to UP for DUP’s “Ang Panaginip kong Fili” which was a sold-out show. Lots of students, mostly female species, were cheering on one of the actors named JC Santos who played Basilio (paging talent managers!). It was a nice experience watching a Floy Quintos play (and a Franco Laurel musical) for the first time. The opening sequence wherein all the characters of “El Filibusterismo” visited Jose Rizal in a dream was very haunting.
Third stop was a jologs fix. I watched “Triple Dare” (concert, charity and fun, as the ticket mentions) at the Music Museum, as suggested by the show’s director who happens to be a “kakilala”. It was Ronnie Liang’s concert with special guests Yeng Constantino, a certain Consuelo (a semi-finalist for PDA Season 2), Bodie Cruz and Nel Rapiz of PBB Season 2, Iya Ginez and Geoff Taylor of PDA Season 1 and Rox Puno (Rico J’s son and more). It was an evening of, err, entertainment and surprisingly good music. Highlights were Rox’s medley of his dad’s hit songs, Ronnie and Yeng’s duet and Geoff Taylor’s rendition of “Always be my Baby”.
