Grand Entrance

One can’t help but reminisce when old friends reunite. Karol is, of course, not exempted from this. She talked about the time when the (DLSU-D)Chorale sang during the Regine Concert, back in ’98, Christmas on a High Note.

“Grabe talaga ‘yung kantang ‘yun. Imagine, pinasakay kami dun sa bus ng La Salle Dasma, yung de-hila yung bintana pataas. Yung kahoy! Yung parang buspapuntang Cavite City. Yuck talaga!,” she states.

“Teka! San ba yung kanta?” I then asked.

“Sa Westin Philippine Plaza!” she answers, “Ang baduy namin ‘di ba? Tapos, may nakasabay pa kaming ibang performer sa traffic. Naka-aircon sila! Talagang nagtalukbong kami ng mukha sa traffic!,” she continued while laughing.

“Yuck! Nakakahiya!” I laughed and commented.

“’Di lang ‘yun,” she paused, “Si Manong! Talagang si manong driver, gusto pang i-valet ang bus. Talagang napasigaw kaming lahat! ‘Manong! Dito na lang kami’, yung tipong malayo pa sa Westin, ‘dito na lang kami’. ’Kahit maglakad kami dito na lang kami bababa’. Kahit makita kaming naglalakad, huwag lang makitang nakasakay sa bus na ‘yun.

“At manong?” she concluded, “Dito n’yo rin kami pi-pik apin. Hindi po sa harap ng Hotel. Dito rin!”
