Ronald was never a Kapamilya. He didn’t like ABS-CBN shows. For him it’s too cheesy or too ‘baduy’. He’s a Kapuso Advocate. Fan of Regine Velasquez and the SOP Gang. Me? I like them both ABS-CBN and GMA 7.
So anyway, after learning that everybody will watch the noontime show, he got his wallet and joined in. ‘Ayaw n’ya maiwan sa bahay’.
A week before the show, Lourdes, Ronald and I were discussing with ate Saffiya, what time we should be in the Dubai Festival City Grounds.
“Alas-3 ang nasa ticket pero pumunta na tayo alas-11,” says ate Saffiya.
“Ay, Ate!” says Ronald, “Late na ‘yun! Agahan natin. Dapat mga alas-8 palang nandun na tayo para nasa unahan tayo.”
Lourdes and I looked at each other, “Teka! Hindi ba ikaw ‘yung ayaw manood? Di ka naman excited? 8 AM!?”
