Kapamilya stars Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador shared importance of humility in the special Christmas presentation of Wansapanataym Presents: Si Maganda at ang Chauvinist Baboy” last night.
Carlos and Anna, volunteers in a relief operation for typhoon victims, they, due to their service and kind heart, got two fairies appointed by Santa Claus a to be the godparents of their newly born son Jessie (Elmo Magalona). To assure their godchild has a bright future, the fairies granted Jessie intelligence, good looks, and irresistible appeal.
As Jessie grew to be a full-grown man, he got too much attention from people, especially from girls, thanks to his charm and wit. However, the praises got into his head and he became overly confident. With this, Irene (Janella Salvador), a girl that adored Jessie so much and the two fairies’ favorite letter sender, became disappointed with him.
With use of magic eyeglasses, Irene saw that Jessie’s heart was like that of a pig, a reflection of his character. With the powers of the fairies, Irene wished Jessie to become a pig to stop him from hurting girls’ feeling and to learn his lesson. The spell breaks if someone loves and accepts him despite being a pig.
Also in the cast of Wansapanataym Presents: Si Maganda at ang Chauvinist Pig were Ramon Christopher, Christian Vasquez, Cheska Iñigo, Malou Canzana, Mutya Orquia, Myel de Leon, and Leo Rialp. Onat Diaz direct from a script written by Mari Lamasan.
Hotdog serenades Grace
Amid Comelec’s disqualification, presidential aspirant Grace Poe remained calm at the Hotdog concert at the Philippine International Convention Center recently. Her husband, Neil Llamanzares, accompanied her to the event.
Hotdog brothers Rene and Dennis Garcia surprised Fernando Poe and Susan Roces’ daughter with a song, which elated the senator.
Roy Rico Pangilinan sang “Ikaw ang Bida, Ako ang Extra, sa Teleserye Nating Dalawa” to the tune of “You and I” that reminded the audience of a song sung by her later father FPJ.
The senator said that the lessons she learned from her father are giving her the strength in facing the challenges in her bid to be an official candidate in next year’s elections.
“Sa ating pinagdaraanan ngayon, naalala ko ang turo ng aking ama: Huwag kang susuko kapag ang pinaglalaban mo ay tama. Huwag kang susuko kapag ang pinaglalaban mo ay prinsipyo,” Grace said. “Higit sa lahat, huwag kang susuko kapag ang pinaglalaban mo ay para sa kapakanan ng kapwa at hindi para sa iyong sarili lamang.”
Grace Poe is looking forward to a vigorous campaign next year with her running mate Senator Chiz Escudero.
