Last Thursday wasn’t just a whirlwind trip for me but for the TV5 talents who participated in the activities as well. Upon their arrival in Cebu, the stars had quick lunch then it was straight to a quick press conference.
Upcoming young talents such as JC De Vera, Danita Paner, Ritz Azul, Arci Munoz, Nina Jose, Morisette Amon, and Eula Caballero joined the likes of established names like Ruffa Gutierrez, Zoren Legaspi and Wendell Ramos in tackling questions about their current projects and their personal lives.
After the press-con, the stars immediately flocked to Fuente Osmena Circle later that afternoon for the main event. Hosts Arnel Ignacio and Cebu’s own Marife Castillo kicked off the show with their hilarious banter, after which they ushered in the Sinulog dancers for a fiery opening number.
More fun and festivities followed later on. Prizes kept flowing as trivia challenges and Celebrity Samurai-inspired games kept Cebuanos at the edge of their seats.
Then it was one performance/onstage appearance after the other:
Talentadong Pinoy alumnus Astroboy setting the stage ablaze with a fiery hula hoop performance.
TV5‘s own ferocious catwoman Arci Munoz (who also celebrated her birthday that day) performing an energetic song number before promoting her upcoming show Felina.
Faith Cuneta singing her take on “Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin”, the theme to Glamorosa.
Valiente stars Nina Jose and JC De Vera delivering a warm “Pit Senor” to the crowd.
Danita Paner and Zoren Legaspi also took the stage minutes before another game.
Then the unexpected happened: A technical mishap at the venue suddenly marred the proceedings. But that didn’t stop the rest of the Kapatid stars from gathering onstage and showing their love to a very appreciative and understanding crowd.
Way to cap off a dizzyingly fast Cebu assignment.
‘Till the next event!
