SEPTEMBER 8 was a great morning for the members of the JCI Puerto Princesa Peacock, Inc. (or Peacock Jaycees) who went to Umagang Kay Ganda of the ABS-CBN. I must admit it’s not very easy for us, especially for me (I’m not at all a morning person) to wake up as early as 3 a.m., because we needed to be at the studio at around 4:30 a.m. Our pension house is 45 minutes from ABS-CBN Station, my group arrived on time, the others who stayed somewhere else, were about 10 minutes late. But it’s okay because Ate Raquel (PA of UKG) was very understanding. Pati mga cameramen ay super bait to the point na sa kanila kami nagpapa-picture.

At around 5:30 a.m., the UKG went on air and there we were, mukhang belasa kasi puyat na puyat. Hindi maganda para sa isang morning show. Thank God at may make up, it did miracle to our faces para maski paano maging maganda naman ang kalalabasan sa tv n gaming mga mukha.

Everybody was thrilled when they finally saw the hosts of UKG: Rica and Donita approached us and were very happy to welcome our group. We were surprised to know that Alex Santos is also a Jaycee from Greater Davao. That was another WOW for us kasi nakakuha ulit ng promotion ang Phippine Jaycees. He was proud to be a Jaycees!

After Umagang Kay Ganda, lumipat naman ang grupo sa WOWOWEE, ang show ng bayan. This time medyo nararamdaman na naming ang puyat at pagod pero still we managed to grace the show. The staff were very accommodating and friendly at nag-enjoy din kami sa panunuod ng show lalo sa ang paggiling ni Luningning, at syempre ang gwapong host ng show na si Willie Revillame na in-acknowledge pa ang Peacock.

Wowowee in Puerto Princesa

Speaking of WOWOWEE, sa October 11, 2008 ay masisilayan na ng mga taga-Puerto Princesa ang kagwapuhan ni Papie Willie at ang mga co-hosts nito dahil dito gaganapin ang WOWOWEE sa Puerto Princesa.

Unang pagkakataon ito na isang malaking variety show ang gagawin dito sa Lungsod. Isang malaking karangalan exposure para sa Puerto Princesa ang ganitong show na napapanuod sa buong mundo through the TFC sa loob ng dalawa’t kalahating oras as to where its going to held and how to watch the show. Hindi ko pa masasagot sa ngayon pero I will give the details as soon as they become available, kaya stay tuned for that.

Britney Spears winning moments on MTV Video Music Awards

Britney Spears is really back in shape, Spears did it again in the recently concluded MTV Video Music Awards. Spears won The Best Female Video and Best Pop Video each for her song “Piece of Me,” which also won Video of the Year.

The audience was thrilled and excited to see Britney, enough for her to get standing ovation from the star-studded crowd. The rebounding Pop queen wore a short silver mini-dress with a plunging neckline. O, di ba winner! She came out so sexy, and so glamorous.
