Hey PinoyJeep Blog followers,
What a day it has been! Early this morning, we were featured on Channel TV 5's Good Morning Club hosted by the famous actor and real "heart-throb," Edu Manzano, and co-host, Tintin Bersola-Babao! For our teaser, we played "Palladio," just to spice up and wake up the early TV show audience. Then, for our main segment, we played "Tango por la Cabeza."
Then, to our surprise, Edu told us that he was once a banduria player while a young student at La Salle Elementary School where he played the banduria. We challenged him to a jam session but he told us that we need to have a left-handed banduria. Oww! We missed the chance! Anyway, Edu requested that we play his favorite rondalla piece, "Leron Leron Sinta" and "Bahay Kubo," which we gladly obliged. We had a ton of fun.
Our fading song was "Just Give Me A Reason."
Do you know what else happened? I was interviewed by Edu himself! HAAAAYYYYY!!!!! Kilig to the bones. While we challenged Edu to play to the banduria with us, this time, he challenged me to talk in Tagalog during the interview! Good thing I know Tagalog, konti-konti lang... (also, thank God my parents trained me to speak in Tagalog or I would have died on live television).
Both the IP Rondalla parents and kids regard this last TV appearance as the best. We kids had lots of fun interacting with Edu and Tintin who treated us as "real" guests throughout the whole show. Our parents also had a good time eating the succulent adobo and menudo packed lunch that TV 5 prepared for us.
We would like to thank Atty. Dan de Padua, head of TV 5's legal department for taking the lead in coordinating this great TV appearance. A big thanks also to Bing Mallari-Maano, Program Manager; Menans Perez, Executive Producer; and Corina Oliquino, Program Researcher; for making this happen. And last, to my dad for taking the time arranging and coordinating the TV show appearance with Dan, his UP Vanguard fraternity brother.
WE LOVE YOU EDU & TINTIN! YOU GUYS ROCK!
