The Balladeers on Valentines Day
M and I were fortunate enough to have a generous dad, who gave us 2 tickets to "The Balladeers on Valentines Day" show held last February 14. Free Vday date!
Held at the Manila Fiesta Pavillion of the Manila Hotel, the show is a benefit concert as the proceeds will be for the construction of the San Roque Church in Agmanic Santa Fe, Romblon.
We arrived early (7pm) but the show started about 9pm. Dinner was served promptly after we were seated. --- Our ticket included a dinner, though I believe they also sold 'show-only' tickets as there were seats lined up at the far end of the pavillion;
The food was good - we had spinach soup and bread, main course of salmon, lamb, veggies and risotto, for dessert was mango crepe and a choice between coffee or tea. However, the food wasn't filling especially if you're hungry and tired from work.
The personalities we spotted were - Annabelle Rama with husband Eddie Gutierrez, Gov. Chavit Singson (on board an Escalade), DOH Sec. Enrique Ona and his doctor wife and Ms. Pinky Tobiano. Majority of the crowd were oldies who tagged their teen kids along and young couples.
Here are some pictures I took that night:
The front-act -- Paula Bianca
K Brosas and the instant comedy show =)
The Golden Divas - the oldies were so pleased to see them!
Carmen Soriano, Pilita Corales and Carmen Patena
It was too late when I realized that I was not able to take pictures of Danita Paner. (I was too engrossed when they sang Kung Mawawala Ka that's why =) )
We really had a great time! I have always been looking forward to Eric and Mark's prod numbers way back when Mark was still in ASAP. To cap the night with Rey Valera songs...aww, kaka-in love! =)
Thanks dad for the gift! Love it! =)
