I recently hosted Brillance: the 4th Bancassurance Awards night in Diamond Ballroom in Diamond Hotel last March 22, 2007. It’s an annual awarding of top Banco De Oro and Generali Pilipinas performers. I felt proud and ofcourse kinda boastful about it. My colleagues told me how good the hosting was. Then I felt, “Wow! Ang yabang ko naman!”
A few days later, during the Cavite Area Meeting, Mr. Ojie, Branch Manager for BDO Imus said to me, “Orlee, galing mo pala mag-host,” then I felt the yabang factor again.
I simply said, “Thank you, sir.”
He immediately said, “May kakilala ako sa Eat Bulaga! Gusto mo ipasok kita?”
Before I could even answer, he said, “kailangan kasi nila ng kapalit ni Jose.”
