The date was February 2nd and it was a Sunday. It’s just a few days after the Chinese New Year celebration and I’m glad I’ve had rest. We don’t usually trek to the mall unless there’s something that need to be purchased or done. In this case, my daughter and I planned an afternoon at SM City Manila to grace the mall tour of Bob Ong’s ABNKKBSNPLAko the movie.
SM City Manila put out a plug that the whole cast was going to be there — Jericho Rosales, Andi Eigenmann, Vandolph Quizon, and Meg Imperial. I couldn’t resist not going as I’ve been a long-time Jericho Rosales fan.. yes, since his Pangako Sa ‘Yo days!
We arrived at the venue rather early and had to wait almost two hours before the program started. Nonetheless, it was all worth it. Since we purchased advance movie passes, we got to enter the event center and were seated comfortably while waiting for the show.
DJ Wowie Taylor of 92.3 was the event host. I believe the radio station is also one of the sponsors of the upcoming premiere night on Feb. 18, 2014 at SM Megamall.
Opening the show was Image Preview, an all boy dance group.
Then, Thyro and Yumi were introduced. They were recent winners of Himig Handog and apparently wrote a hit song that was interpreted by Sam Concepcion. I must admit I didn’t know them, but we were rather impressed as they sang really well.
I was more surprised when YouTube sensations Donnalyn Bartolome and rapper SheHyee were introduced! It seemed they’re a hit with youngsters in the crowd! I really don’t know much about Flipmusic which seemed to have gone viral among the younger group.
Thyro, Yumi, Donnalyn Bartolome, and SheHyee also sang the theme song of the movie, “Tuloy Pa Rin.” I believe it’s a remake of an old song that I remember from the days of my youth. LOL! Anyway, I liked this part of the show and glad that I took a video of the performance.
Then, comedienne Giselle Sanchez, who is also part of the cast, was called on to perform a funny and entertaining number.
Meg Imperial plays the role of Gina on afternoon tv series “Galema.” She also joins the cast of ABNKKBSNPLAko the movie. She looks so pretty in person and also performed two numbers.
Vandolph Quizon, along with DJ Wowie, hosted a throwback “bring me” game. It was an entertaining and funny segment indeed with items ranging from oldest barkada photo to oldest company ID.
Andi Eigenmann had such a fun time performing, but it was rather difficult to record a video and take photos too as Andi was all over the place. LOL! She even took a selfie with fans while she was performing. 😀 Too bad my daughter didn’t go near as she would have loved to have a photo with Andi Eigenmann.
My much awaited part of the program finally came and it was Jericho Rosales’s turn to entertain the crowd. He performed three numbers, all of which I recorded! You can view them on my YouTube channel : raincrystal
It was an entertaining afternoon and evening indeed! And although I haven’t as yet read the book, I’m excited to watch the upcoming movie! It will be shown on Feb. 19, 2014. Do enjoy the trailer preview below…
Hope to see you too at the cinemas! Till next update… ta-tah!
