Hale and drag queens back to back!- Padi's Point, Cubao
Image hosted by
Okay, so the whole set-up at Padi's Point was not the way it was planned.
And I know mixing up Hale and Ian and the Closet Queens was not a smart idea either, I could only imagine Hale's throngs of fans (including birthday girl MM) horrified, but Hale and the drag queens proved to be a hit.
Upon Champ's entrance, I striked a conversation and I immediately mentioned we're brothers & sisters in the church. So we already established a connection and called each other "kapatid". The poor guy is sick, with a sapin sa likod and tupperware-clad water in tow. These guys were easy to work with, with no whims and demands and I'm pleased to also note while I hardly know their songs nor I am a fan, now I think I am. :)

Jolens brings Bebong to work

I hardly work with Jolina in remote as she is typically confined in the studio, but since Eagle and Drew are on their way to Guam, Jolens have no choice but be with us for a segment featuring the bazaar at the World trade center in Pasay.

Sarap ng buhay, hay

The gay invasion in Higantes Festival-Angono, Rizal- Nov. 23, St. Clement Parish church, Angono Rizal
Image hosted by
This is by far the most exhausting pre-production I can remember. Me and my researcher also threw a fight over this brought about by exhaustion, sleeplessness and terrible dinner. Traffic was extremely terrible and it is not a wise idea to proceed to Angono to conduct an ocular leving Manila at 6pm when you have to leave Angono before 11pm because you have to return to Manila to go to Angono again (still with me?) with my technical crew.
I was nervous the entire night/morning before the event started because a director whom I hardly work with, one of the most notorious ones in implementing strict rules is coming.
To make matters worse, Drew failed to arrive because he got sick.
I thought this is gonna be a cursefest for me but it was the complete otherwise.
The gay beauty contestants were all out in showing what they've got- fake boobs bigger than mine, long eyelashes (scary!) extravagant flowing gowns and heavy make-up! Wow! dragshow in the morning, love it! they spice up the segments.
Yay! :)

UH Christmas Cooking Pinoy Style-Chef Dennis Hipolito's House-Meycauan, Bulacan
Image hosted by
This week has been very gluttonic week, if there is such a word. This spelled disaster for my diet. Sigh.

Chef Dennis Hipolito concocts the best sweets, and he loves what he does. His orange poppy seeds coffe cakes are way way better than the ones sold in the usual coffeshops we frequent. Drew was addicted with Chef's chocolate fudge cake. It's that heavenly. The guys I work with were like kids in a candyshop upon seeing the delightful goodies.
This is bad, and I have to thank Chef Dennis for the 5 pounds I packed on that single event alone. Hehe.

I'm confused whether this is Igan or his alter ego, Arn-arn.
