Ang mama sa likod ni Arn-arn

Kuya totong, a.k.a. Danilo Federez-Photo by shiela, our ex-marketing coordinator
I ought to make a tribute to Kuya Totong, (Danilo Federez) the funny guy behind Arn-arn because not everyone sees who's the person behind that puppet. He's one of the funniest guys one can meet. When I was just starting out as an intern for the show, he appeared to be a big guy who bites because he looks so intimidating. But kuya totong is the exact opposite. His career as a puppeteer started in ABC-5, where he portrayed Dennis Wrongman, one of Joey De leon's sidekick. He is also the first puppet to interview the president of the Philippines.
O diba, taray?

Direk's lil helper

Direk Roehl at work katabi ng iba pang mga bayani sa coverage ng GMA-7
SPECIAL COVERAGE- Cardinal Sin's Burial-June 28, 2005-Manila Cathedral
I was direk's little helper during this coverage, coordinating with the studio and Kuya Sam (our senior segment producer) presided over as floor director. Ms. Rhea Santos was the reporter, along with Ms. Susan Enriquez and Mariz Umali. 4-camera set-up kami (taray no?)from different vantage points within the vicinity.
As compared to our previous special coverage rin last December 2004 (Paalam, FPJ, Jr.)Hindi ito kasing bigat ng FPJ. ABC-5 got the exclusive to have their cameras inside the cathedral, but with their permission naka-patch ang video nila sa amin.
It was a very muddy coverage, due to the previous drizzle the night before, catholic highschool and college students flocked the area of the cathedral to pay their last respects to his eminence Cardinal Sin.

More notes about Suzi's concert:

    Father's Day challenge with Mark Gil and April Boy Regino's kids (Taped)-June 15, 2005 Club sixfifty, Libis, Q.C.
    I've learned four things:
  • It is never wise to wear boxers when you will be mounted on a harness
  • Mark Gil is a very sweet sweet guy for a kontrabida
  • Kahit anong angulo, jologs talaga si April Boy...
  • every angle....
  • ...but really hilarious in his every own way...

    Opening of classes sa college Level- June 14, 2005, Mendiola Consortium, Manila
    One tough event. First off, we have no contacts from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to shed light on matters concerning the collegiate level. So will anyone please enlighten us with the statistics of the college students please? Second, we had to share with the traffic team our camera set-up.
    Third, Semi narcoleptic me is starting to get sleepy again. Hee.
