Sayang at wala si Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista when, through her younger sister Harlene, he treated members of the entertainment press to a party.
Yes, members ng entertainment press na nag-celebrate ng kanilang birthday from August to December. Nauna na niyang binigyan ng salu-salo ang mga celebrator for the months of January to July.
Mayor Herbert, we heard, from Harlene is currently in Mexico City for a conference. Hindi binanggit ni Harlene kung kelan babalik ang kapatid.
Well, the party was held sa Salu Restaurant on Scout Torrillo Street in Quezon City.
Filipino food ang specialty ng eatery na ito, na ang may-ari ay si Harlene and her husband, former child actor Romnick Sarmenta.

Super congratulations to Star Cinema for the supreme box office success of the movie The Super Parental Guardians which opened in theaters nationwide Wednesday in close to 300 theaters.
The film, starring Vice Ganda, Coco Martin and child actors Onyok Pineda at Awra Briguela, with Bb. Joyce Bernal as director, reportedly grossed P75M.
No wonder, happy sina Vice at Coco who both felt disappointed when the film, supposedly was earmarked for this year’s Metro Manila Filmfest (MMFF) failed to make it to Magic 8.
But as Vice himself claimed, after kumbaga, “nahimasmasan” na siya sa kanyang feeling of ‘pagkabigo’, there must be a reason.
No doubt, Vice, there is a reason.

Vice, as well as Coco, believes na malaki ang naiambag nina Onyok at Awra sa success ng pelikula.
Hindi lang nga kaedad nilang manonood ang tuwang- tuwa sa performance nila, kung hindi ang mga elder din.
Do you know that lahat ng involved sa program nina Vice at Coco, It’s Showtime and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, ay sama-samang nanonood ng The Super Parental Guardians noong opening day ng pelikula?

Personal: Happy birthday to fellow PAMI member Dolor Guevarra, who turns a year older today.
