Some two decades ago, he was admittedly the toast of Tinsel Town.
And why not? He seemed to have it all – good looks, eloquence and the talent to make most women (and limpwristed men, too? Hahahahahahahahaha!) completely sated in bed.
Indeed, he was versatility personified and had no qualms in delineating roles that would have him flashing (flashing daw talaga, o! Hahahahahaha!) his ware for the public to ogle at.
Indeed, give him any kind of role and he could deliver it handily. Hahahahahahahaha!
As a matter of fact, in one movie that he coolly starred in, his female co-star (who was then Tinsel town’s hottest) felt inadequate side by side with his riveting performance as a screaming faggot no less. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
Pa’no naman kasi, kabogera (kabogera raw talaga, o! Hahahahahahahaha!) talaga siyang tunay and was perennially letter perfect with his lines and was exquisitely good.
‘Yun n na!
No wonder, with all her overflowing beauty and popularity, nakaramdam ng insecurity ang sikat na bombshell. Bukod sa ang gwapo-gwapo na nga naman ng aktor at napaka-telegenic pa, he was also a ter- rific actor to boot.
Suffice to say, kinabog nga niya sa pag-arte ang maganda at seksing aktres kaya kapag siya na ang ka-eksena ay perpetually on her toes na ang girlash. Hahahahahahahahaha!
Some two decades hence, shakira kami sa kanyang horrific metamorphosis.
His fine good looks have now completely dissipated and he appears to be old before his time.
How so very sad.
Even the roles that are coming his way are no longer challenging and meaty.
Truth to tell, bibihira na siyang makaganap ng lead roles dahil sa kanyang hitsura na tumanda na long before his time.
How so very sad if not pathetic altogether.
ANGEL LOCSIN AFFABILITY
I am not that close to Ms. Angel Locsin but somehow, I have come to like her through the years.
In the few times that we would be seeing her inadvertently, the smile that’s plastered on her lips appears to be genuine and sincere.
Wala sa kanya ang kaplastikan ng karamihan sa ating mga artista at napaka-dedicated niyang anak at most giving na kapatid.
No wonder, paborito siyang leading-lady ng mga aktor at paborito ring co-stars ng mga sikat ding aktres.
Hindi kasi competitive si Angel at napaka-supportive niya sa mga artistang kanyang nakakasama.
Anyhow, this early, her innumerable fans are waiting with bated breath her Darna movie that is reportedly very much different from the previous Darna flicks.
Angel Locsin yata ‘yan!
ATTY. TOPACIO’S APPEALING HUMANITY
He is a lawyer of some renown but Atty. Ferdinand Topacio has got a most appealing human side.
Tulad na lang ngayon, he’s very much aware that his personal client Ms. Gretchen Barretto is presently experiencing the most traumatic episode in her life, he is always around to lend succor in any capacity he can.
Nata-touch kami nina Papa Abs at amigang Peter L. kapag sinasagot niya ang mga personal calls ni Ms.Claudine kahit na busy siya sa kanyang interviews at never namin siyang kinakitaan ng pagkainis.
Just like a doting friend, he’s always a shoulder to cry on to his client’s and is most avuncular in his treatments of them.
Kapag kausap niya si Ms. Claudine, concern and emphaty is palpably mirrored on his countenanance and this, for us, could never be bought with money.
Mabuhay ka Atty. I feel so proud to have known a guy like you who is so nice in spite of his lofty station in life.

And with that, ito po ang kuya Pete ninyo na nagsasabing, Christopher, my son, I love you very, very much, my love for you goes beyond eternity. Adios. Mabalos. I always need you, Nong!
