During the 80’s, tatay was told that he looked like Christopher De Leon.
During the early 90’s, he was downgraded to Dick Israel.
One morning, he told us, “Sabi sa akin ni Paula (my niece) kamukha ko raw yung Batanggueno sa TV.”
We asked him, “Sino?”
Tatay said, “Si Leo Martinez. Sana hindi ko na lang s’ya pinagluto ng almusal.”
