Croc farm part 2

Location: Pasay
Thanks Suzette for standing in as the Assistant director

Guest hosts Joaquin Valdez/ Monica Verano
They have potential in TV hosting. Both are refreshingly perky in the morning, without appearing dumb. They both know what they're talking about.

This is deja vu all over again

Breakfast menu for under P50!
Location: Commonwealth Market for the 1000th time.

12:00midnight. Friday. Coming straight from my other job, I went back to GMA with no clear event.

Worse, no researcher. My bestfriend Raymond took over trying to look for a location. (thanks, peks!)
Why do I feel like this has happened before?

12:03. Upon orders from my executive producer, I called Chef Tristan and asked if he can make a segment. Luckily while half-asleep, he agreed.

From that time till we air, I researched, coordinated contacts and wrote my own script.
Where's my researcher?

No, no one walked out. She was just sick.

Kaye, I commend you for still being able to function despite being sick. Thank you for initially coordinating the event that didn't stand out.

3rd W@ter Lily Festival

Location: Las Pinas, Manila

With no sleep, Kaye my researcher, Production assistant Kuya Jari & me we arrived at around 3ish in the morning at the location. I was a little annoyed to see the people of L@s Pin@s were already there.

Normally, in Festival coverages such as this, people flock in a little before five in the morning, before the show starts.
But apparently these ones were too excited. So adios sleep.
I so appreciate the excitement of the people though.

His last name sounds like a curse word

location: Rizal memorial stadium, Manila
Training with the lone Olympic hopeful boxer (light flyweight division) Harry Tanyamor

We have a guest host, crap I forgot the kid's name (left) That's my smart researcher EJ on my right.

Eagle gave him some pointers on how to host a magazine show to the newbie kid:
Walang pakielam ang tao sa opinion mo, ang trabaho mo ay maging eyes and ears ng storya mo, at yun ang ibibida mo sa kanila!

A nightmare no segment producer would ever want to go through

Location: Commonwealth Market, Commonwealth Avenue, Q.C.

Price list ng dry goods sa Palengke

The nightmare I'm talking about is executing live remote without a researcher.
The day I stood alone as SP/ researcher was three years ago when I was training to be a producer.
I have my senior producer with my back then, so technically I wasn't alone.
A standing SP alone during live has never happened before, ever.

But, I always look on the brighter side.
And while the live event continuously poured literally, there's always something (if not so bright) at the end.
I'm still thinking what it is.
