I got a call a few days ago from “Eat Bulaga” people asking me if I was willing to guest and participate in a game segment called, “Sa Pula, Sa Puti”. Most Pinoys know this already. The game is simple… you belong to one of two teams and take turns answering rather easy questions. First team to reach 3 points advances to the jackpot round.
I agreed to participate and went (naturally).
I was excited to see some of my old friends… my barkadas. Kinda hard to really touch base and hang out regularly since everyone’s into something else already and parenthood has pretty much placed everything else in the backseat.
My teammates (Puti) were Jojo Abellana, Ricky Rivero, Brylle Mondejar and Nadia Montenegro. The “Pula” team was comprised of Shirley Fuentes, Jeffrey Santos, Ramon Christopher, Robert Ortega and Jojo Alejar. T’was a mix of old and new “That’s” hosts.
Fast-forward to the game itself…
We (Puti team) swept the competition 3-0! So, it was bye-bye red team! We also won the jackpot prize amounting to 120,000.00! The jackpot cash was given to the Eat Bulaga scholars… (Happy to be doing this for a cause!)
More than anything, it was great fellowship! Nostalgia and reminiscing… (enter music, “Growing Up” by Gary V.)
Just like the old times, when “That’s Entertainment” was still around… it wasn’t the exposure or the singing or the dancing that was memorable… it was coming to the studio to just “hang out” with good friends.
It was great!
And it felt good. :)
I’ve been going back and forth in my mind trying to decide if I should post a blog entry I composed earlier or not. I want to publish it so bad… but I had to hold back a little considering the repercussions it might cause should someone included in my article stumble upon it for some strange reason.
The article is actually still in my “Drafts’ folder. But I’ll hold on to it in the meantime.
So, what does one do to vent out when blogging isn’t a viable option for the moment?
YouTube is such a treasure trove of long lost videos!
Who would’ve thought I’d find a very old Colgate commercial that I was a part of way back in the mid-1980s?! Talk about nostalgia! Those of you who are old enough to remember will surely feel the same way.
Anyways, I’d like to share with you the Colgate TV ad which featured Isabel Granada, Jennifer Sevilla and myself. I was about 12 years old then (Hahaha!). Enjoy! :)
