“SA loob ng limang taon ko sa showbiz, I guess it’s time for me to give back,” ani Michael Pangilinan. “Over the years, I truly realized na ito talaga ang mundong gusto kong tahakin, ang pagiging singer-performer. And I’m truly grateful to all of you, to my manager (Jobert Sucaldito) who has always stood by me since day one. I promise na hindi ko pababayaan ang karera na ito and I will be a better man. Thank you also to my audience na nagtitiyaga sa akin, my show producers, my sponsors, members of the media na parating nandiyan sa tabi ko and my mom and dad, my siblings. Kuya Sam and Peter, to my son Ezekiel na inspirasyon ko sa bawat minuto. One day ay magkakasama na tayo. And of course, to Almighty God.”

AN EARLY CHRISTMAS TREAT
PAO Chief Persida Acosta has been 19 years in the service to the people in stewarding the department with her sterling ability as a public servant. Now comes, maybe, a big pinch in her heart when she heard that she may have to relinquish her present post for a higher level in the Supreme Court. It sounds though she felt it is raining in her heart because she has learned to love the people working under her like her own family. Just in case it happens, well as the popular expression say , let’s move on , she will gladly accept it with open heart and soul. But don’t despair she will be as loving and caring to all of us in good and bad times.
Madame Persida was in high spirits welcoming the members of the entertainment press during a lunch get-together at the Shangri-La resto in Quezon City. During the Q and A portion, she evaded some that were ticklish as she said she might get misquoted.
Despite thaat, everybody went home smiling and thankful to the PAO Chief for an early Christmas treat to the entertainment press.
