ni Pete Ampoloquio, Jr.Encountering personalities who made it quite big in the business during their heyday but is now looking miserable and worn-out makes me veritably sad.
That’s how I exactly did feel when I inadvertently saw this balding balladeer who made quite a name in the business during the mid and late 90s but is now comparable to a pennyless has been.
Dati talaga, mabrilyo ang dating ng kanyang personalidad at kapag lumalabas sa weekly musical variety show ng isang mabait na Mr. Showman, hiyawan to the max talaga ang kanyang mga tagasubaybay.
Kaya ganon na lang ang pagkalungkot namin nang makita namin siya sa birthday ce-lebration ng isang singer/actor, na parang himalang nakabangon mula sa kanyang tragic accident and is once again back to his good looking glamorous self, “looking like a veritable derelict.
He’s not naman skinny but he was not as meticulously outfitted as before and was somewhat old before his time and kind of dirty-looking and bloated as well.
Nagkasakit kasi siya before but somehow had miraculously been healed.
‘Yun nga lang, nawala na ang kanyang debo-nair appeal at parang nagkaedad nang wala sa panahon.
How so very sad!
Pa’no naman kasi siya mabibigyang muli ng break kung hindi niya aasikasohin ang kanyang sarili?
Mag-isip-isip ka, hijo. Ayusin mo ang iyong sarili at saka ka mag-attempt na mag-stage ng comeback sa musicville.
