Title: Who's The Most Famous Person You've Meet/Encountered?
Post by: udtohan on June 17, 2008, 09:24:24 AM
months ago when i was supposed to write it for my column (but not yet, maybe soon).

i had the chance to talk with sir jun ayag knowing his background if who's the most famous or interesting person he met.

Sir Jun was privileged to meet and serve one of Asia’s top banking leaders, the Honorable Aurelio R. Montinola III, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)  and President of  the Bank of the Philippine Islands and its subsidiaries during his short visit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He also met the respected business management guru, Dr. Hubert Rampersad, the author of  the book and President of TPS - Lean Six Sigma LLC. 

how about you?

1. Pope John Paul - sa Manila twice - sa UST nga few feet lang away sa iya bullet proof na gisakyan ug didto sa Luneta nag vigil mi overnight. Wala nako siya maesturya but his presence was very Holy ug ambot ngano nakaluha jud ko ug dili lang ako tanan nga naa didto nga duol niya.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger - my coworkers and I were having lunch at Lucca Restaurant here in Sacramento and pretty soon we saw 3 huge black SUVs parked in front and there Ahnold showed up and passed our table going at the secret back table covered with plants. Kay diay regular siya didto magkaon ug lunch. Only 2 guys went with him but lots of bodyguards waiting outside.

3. Corazon Aquino and Kris Aquino - in the mid 90's in one or 2 of the EDSA People Power Anniversaries. I was close enough to see them clearly in the stage sa EDSA Shrine.

Who's the most famous person I've ever met?

hmmmmmmm...

Most definitely Lea Salonga...

I wouldn't exactly say she's very fan-accommodating but she is, nonetheless, a wonderful person in all aspects of her personality.

Yes, I've met other personalities whom common people would consider famous.

[Some to the point of worshiping them; others to the extent of committing suicide just to get a glimpse of them from a hundred feet away or risking getting branded "serial killer" just to get a photograph of themselves taken beside the supposed celebrity (however hideous it may turn out to be).  You can't blame them for that.  They grew up with a very poor sense of discriminating judgment.]

Anyway, back to the topic.  Those other such personalities I've met, who may forcibly fall under the "famous people" category due to public regard, are ones whom I have little to no regard of beyond "regular people from around the corner".

So much for this...  Lea Salonga is just so totally awesome!  ~(grammar fluctuation intended)

I met the late UN General Carlos P. Romulo. The year after his visit in Bohol, he died.

I was a CAT Cadet during that time, guarding the stage at the grandstand. Sa iyang pag discorso, na loose connection ang microphone ug nagkabuang mi ug lubag-lubag sa wire. After his speach, he gave a hand to every one on the stage including me.

Most famous individuals I've met?

This past May, I met former President Bill Clinton when he visited Allegheny College, I visited the Foreign Minister of Norway in my summer semester study in Kiev Mohyla Academy of Law in June 2006 in the Democratic Republic of The Ukraine. I met the President of Ukraine--leader of the Orange Revolution. Back in 2004, I also met Vice President Dick Chenney when he visited Allegheny College. Another famous individual was meeting and getting to know His Eminence Bishop Donald Trautman of the Diocese of Erie, pennsylvania. I met him in a catholic collegiate conference in Gannon University; where I told him I was reviewing for my MCATs for Medical School. His Eminence prayed for me, touching my head with his hands and giving me his blessings. It was such a great honor for me to know him, and have him call me by my first name. A Sheppard of the Catholic Church called be by name. I will always remember him.

The most prestigious man that I met in my life would have to be Dr. Dioscoro Villanueva, M.D.
I met him when I rotated with him; he is the leading Cardiothoracic Surgeon in the entire Southern New Jersey and New Jersey. He is a Great man yet so humble in his voice and in his mannerisms. He does not show off his greatness, but talks as if he was an 'every-day' individual. A great surgeon, A great physician, and one of my idols. I want to be just like him, God Willing, someday.

He is an inspiration to all Filipino Medical Students and those aspiring to become a Physician-Surgeon.

I watched Lea Salonga in Broadway where she performed her two musical show "Flower drum song" and "Les Miserable". I'm a big fan so my banana and I bought tickets close to the stage. She's amazing!

Side A band (my favorite) during their concert in Jersey City few years ago.

Former US NJ Senator and now our NJ Governor John Corzine who was also the CEO of the GoldmanSach, NYC.  It was during the campaign that my banana and I helped. What a big guy he is that when I shook his hand I feel like I shook a giant's hand.

Sa Philippines ra ko naka encounter ug matawag nato'g famous personalities.

Ex-President Fidel Ramos was in our bank's conference room when he was the President of the Phils.  to ask for the hand of our then bank's president Guido Delgado kay gusto ni FVR na ipa presidente sa NAPOCOR.  I also saw ex-President Cory Aquino when I went to the Monastery of Transfiguration in Malaybalay for a weekend getaway.  At that time she was there with Imelda Cojuangco.  Sus, naa pa to sya'g mura'g nanny.  At that time, there was a special event at the Monastery.  I was sitting beside Imelda Cojuangco.  Her nanny offered her a bowl of cashew nuts.  Ms. Imelda then offered me and hello, nuts na gud na so ning dawat pod ko!   ;D  I met also with GMA during one or two of the rallies for Erap's ouster.

While working in Manila, I had the chance to meet with the man in my dreams (adtong college pa ko and imagined this man as the character in the Mills and Boon pocketbooks I was reading! baduya oi!):  Fernando Zobel de Ayala.  Through my boss in Manila, Guido Delgado, I got to meet not only Mr. Fernado but also his brother Jaime, and their parents and Fernando's wife Kitkat - also during rallies. Cute kaayo si Kitkat unya all of them were so humble!   Many times I met, during meetings where I was part of the secretariat, Jarius Bondoc of Phil. Star and Rina David of PDI, Kuh Ledesma, Celeste Legaspi, Jim Paredes, Sharon Cuneta, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, Sen. Teofisto Guingona, Bart Guingona, ug daghan pa to.

One early morning, I had a breakfast meeting at Starbucks in Ortigas and there Sen. Manny Villar.  Hipos kaayo ijang hinapay.  ;)  While having dinner in one of the restaurants in Ortigas, I also saw the late Sen. Raul Roco with his colorful attire.   :) He was so cool.  He was having lunch with his wife.  Patago-tago pa pero nakit-an man gihapon so ning wave2x na lang sya!   Also, while ga laroy2x sa Rockwell, I saw Sen. Drilon.  We shook hands.  He was nice but aren't all politicians like that?  Nakita pod nko si Imee Manotoc with her son Borgy sa Glorietta.  Cool mama kaayo sya oi mura lang sila barkada!  Oi, oi, I can't possibly miss this!  I saw Sen. Miriam Santiago with his sons sa Shangrila.  Heavily guarded sya oi! :o

uhm dee hum hum. I haven't really ever met a famous person.
I'm trying to think. All that comes to mind is Philippine Teen Star Gerald Anderson  :D
and I don't know if it counts. It was around 6 or 7 a.m. when I saw him at the airport, on Good Friday I think.
He was going for a domestic flight for General Santos. He had two people with him.
A guy that looked slightly younger, I mistaked him for Gerald but I think now it was his brother.
And a possible family friend. He was wearing a cap and sunglasses and although most
people tell me, "It might not have been him." I am 100% POSITIVE! He sat in front of my mother
and I practically fainted in a giggling fit. He looked over at me curiously. I was too scared to go up
and chat with him. I don't know if it counts but oh well.The only other one I can think of is the
Mayor of Inabanga and I don't know if he counts either. :)

I shook hands with:
- Fidel Ramos (twice)
- Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (thrice)
- Senate President Manny Villar (once in Davao City)

I once acted as tour guide for Liza Macuja (the ballerina) and her sister Gia (the soprano)

I once said a word of comfort to Cesar Montano after the 2007 elections.


There were still a few other famous persons but revealing who they are would be revealing who I am  ;D

Since wala diri si Barbaro nga mo translate sa Arabic, ako nang i-reveal ang among conversation ni King Abdulaziz as below:

King Abdulaziz: Macky, give me a cup of tea.

Macky: With milk? how much sugar?

King Abdulaziz: No, without milk and with small sugar.

I met Gloria Arroyo every week in my Macroeconomics 101 class at ADMU when she was still a professor. Naay gamay nga istorya nga nahinumduman ko niya, which was when I was absent twice and another lady was absent by happenstance both times. During our next class, she asked both of us, to our confusion, "How was your date?" Lain baya to akong ka-date adto...

I was on the same Tagbilaran-bound plane once when she was still a senator. I met her two times in Tokyo during her state visits. One time, during the acknowledgment part of her speech at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel in Tokyo, she called my name and mentioned I was her student. Wa pa gyud ko kadungog, gikuhit lang ko sa akong tupad. She acknowledges me here in this photo.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3080/2591868081_ffe62fe0ce_m.jpg)

I also met her predecessors Fidel V. Ramos and Joseph Estrada in Tokyo. In this photo during Erap's visit to Tokyo, he still enjoyed a honeymoon with the media, who found his every faux pas very endearingly makamasa. When Loi Estrada suggested lowering the age limit for more entertainers to be able to come to Japan, eyebrows were raised but comments where made hush-hush. Five years later and when Erap was already under house arrest, entertainers were almost completely banned from Japan.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3011/2591974603_de324c9ca8_m.jpg)


I've met Sen. Aquilino Pimentel on several occasions since he was still a mayor in CDO. I have interviewed Senators Manny Villar, Mar Roxas and Juan Flavier. I have talked with Franklin Drilon.

In the giddy days of Japan's bubble economy, movie stars were dime a dozen in Tokyo. Some of them have even performed at my place, which has a small open space. There was some fuss when Claudine Barretto's manager booked her at the same time at my place and at another at the far end of Japan. I was fuming mad because people were already expecting her. She apologized to me and made up for it by making a free appearance the next day, collecting only tips clipped in chopsticks from the audience. Despite the uproar that she caused because of her messed-up schedule, she more than made up for it by her sweetness and kindness.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3045/2591868065_5488b151e5_m.jpg)

I interviewed Kuh Ledesma when she was invited to Tokyo by NHK in a special Earth Day program. She engaged me in a heavy discussion about the US bases, which were then in the process of pulling out of the country. She had perhaps read my column in the paper given to her earlier, and presumed I was not interested in showbiz buzz.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3123/2591868071_ea5ed69a99_m.jpg)

Joyce Gimenez sat next to me, in total silence, at my cramped office as she waited for her number to be called outside. When my daughter came in, ice was broken. Although better known as pantasya ng bayan, she was very shy and almost lacking in confidence. I could sense the pressure on her from trying to live up to such a monicker, especially since there were many Filipina entertainers more voluptuous than her in the audience.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3125/2591906081_d6c231367f_m.jpg)

Maria Isabel Lopez used to engage in garments business with my wife Lynne. They staged fashion shows together but for one reason or another, she decided to return to the Philippines with her family and started a lucrative resort business catering to the Japanese.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3207/2591974599_971552e887_m.jpg)

Priscilla Almeda was the original sex siren of Philippine cinema. She was certainly a goddess to behold when she came here with Matt Ranillo some ten years ago. But when I last interviewed her about two years ago, she has settled for an obscure life and a domestic look. Check out this interview at http://www.philippinestoday.net/index.php?module=article&view=126.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3212/2591974601_7cd4f36a32_m.jpg)

Ariel Rivera, even in the heydey of his fame, struck me as someone not really self-absorbed. He is more impressive in person.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3092/2591868075_57f2988445_m.jpg)

Sam Milby was mobbed when he and Piolo Pascual as well as the Pinoy Dream Academy winners came to Tokyo to launch ABS-CBN's IPTV service TFCko. But at the small victory party to which I was invited afterwards, I saw Sam at one point standing in one corner awkwardly waiting for someone to talk with. A very painfully  shy guy, he was only too happy to excuse himself after the obligatory kodakan and slipped unnoticed outside Roppongi's sleepless streets.

(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3271/2591868077_0253f515d1_m.jpg)

By the way, Tokyo used to be a favorite destination of movie stars who wanted to make quick bucks, especially when their stars were already waning back home. Among those who slipped in and out almost unnoticed were Michael V, Ruffa G before Ylmaz, Osang, Julio Diaz...

Meeting the bigshots is just one of the perks of working in the media. Now I live a more laid-back life far from the social whirl, since I've decided on a saner livelihood that's mainly office-based.

Those days were a great eye-opener, though. None of that fame is permanent. I've seen Erap rise and fall. I've watched Priscilla Almeda sizzle on the celluloid screen, and fizzle as an ordinary waitress mopping the floor. Some of them have been able to float mid-air until now, but I'm surprised that the more fame they have, the greater their fear that it's going to slip under them anytime.

Some have become friends, because I always touch base with what is common between us. And that is not fame, but perhaps fear. I believe that a normal level of fear is healthy for our reality check. Jobelle Salvador still calls me up occasionally. She keeps thanking me for the "best interview" written on her in her entire showbiz career (I'm just quoting her). Priscilla also called me up, surprisingly to thank me as well. They seem to have more security on the ground than airborne ...

WOW!  You are more than as popular  rather than these persons being published. Sorry, I know few of them through media. Sir Benelynne,  you are the most famous person I first virtually meet  and I wish to encounter you personally with my promised Donfelder German wine which I'm drinking tonight in honor of the  Germany soccer team who just won against  Portugal favourite team. We qualified for semi-final and hope to win that Europe Soccer Master which we got that title way back 1996.

Mura ba ug MARDI GRAS sa New Orleans...

dili nalang dad-on nang ngalan ni Sto Nino gud!

lahi man gud ang mardigras sa new orleans kaysa ngari.
labina kanag mardigras sa rio de janiero sa brazil.
ang mga street dancing ngari more on praises to their patron saint.
unlike sa new orleans nga tradition lang exchange ug beads.

The two most famous individuals who I've made personal acquaintances were both physicians.

A) Dr. Villanueva, M.D (Cardiothoracic Surgeon and Director of Surgical Residents)
B) Dr. Updike, M.D (Gastroenterologist; General Internist; Instructor)

I knew both of them through shadowing them these past few years. I am attracted to their voice, their firm understanding in their most respectable fields, and most importantly their unwavering passion in their medical fields.
Dr. Updike stunned me when we had lunch together, he stunned me with his knowledge of the Philippines during World War II. Not only was he a physician, but also a fellow historian.

Dr. Villanueva, to me, was a man on a pedestal. Named one of the best surgeons in the entire state; and specifically in southern New Jersey. The man has trained hundreds of surgical residents; and has performed thousands of procedures in his lifetime. I remember looking at his hand when he explained procedures to me, he never waivered. The man was firm in his gestures, and when he explained something--it was with a soothing and low toned voice. Truly he was a Cardiothoracic Surgeon.

How famous can one get? Those who make a profession on Saving Human Lives and or prolong Life itself, to me, take the cake. The ability to save life and prolong life, the very gift Divine Providence gave to man, is not only a blessing, but true responsibility.

What would you do if you find yourself in the same elevator as this lady?

(http://news.stareastasia.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/01/namie-amuro-pic-0003.jpg)

(http://www.jmusicworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/607px-amuro60s70s80sdvd.jpg)

Well, I did once, while doing translation work for NHK, Japan's public broadcasting network. And for those of you who don't know her, she's Namie Amuro, Japan's top pop diva and fashion trend-setter. This lady is amazing. Known for popularizing the bronzefied hairstyle and high-heeled boots in Japan, she shot to the zenith of popularity about 10 years ago, got pregnant, bore a child and dissolved into obscurity. When she made a comeback recently, she was re-embraced by her fans and their teenage kids and has doubled her following.

Sadly, when I found myself in the same elevator as her, we were not by ourselves. Besides me, there were two cleaning ladies and two of her male alalays. Nobody fussed over her. But when she stepped out, the two janitresses looked at each other and muttered, "I just looked at her billboard today. Can't believe she's that tiny."

Fame does make one bigger than life.

Bitaw, akong reaksyon pareho ra jud sa duha ka tiguwang nga baje. Many famous people, sans make-up, look different, less impressive, in person. I was surprised that the beauty icon Namie Amuro whom I literally looked up in her billboards I had to literally look down upon in person kay gamay ra man diay kaayo siya. Nice thing when you're enclosed in such a small space is that you can't really have an air about you.

Post by: bolingitboy on July 12, 2008, 11:47:50 PM
I just wanted to make a comment on the difference between Philippine festivals (Sandugo included) that highlight street dancing and Mardi Gras (whether in New Orleans or Rio de Janiero).  Mardi Gras is a festival that is celebrated every Tuesday before Ash Wednesday which marks the start of Lent. Mardi is Tuesday in French. Being so, people party all day and all night long. They shout, they laugh, they dance, they drink, they flirt, women romp the streets in thongs and allow their papayas to swing and sway to the beat and rhythm of the music. They let it all hang out because they know that it's going to be their last for quite some time after which they will have to practice abstinence. In effect Mardi Gras which is always characterized by frenzy and wild abandon might be viewed as the collective behaviour of a people who know that the following day they are expected to behave and live a pious life as dictated by religion, and so they go wild and indulge in all worldly pleasures as they can before that day comes. Without meaning to, the thought of a death convict eating his last meal comes to mind. On the other hand most Philippine festivals are anchored on religious celebrations, mostly feast days of patron saints, which explains why almost every street dancing festival in the Philippines feature religious icons that dancers carry and wave around. Probably one of the most popular are the Sinulog of Cebu and Ati-Atihan of Kalibo which both honor the feast day of the Sto. Nino. They do have a distinct dance that devotees perform in church but it has been commercialized by the Philippine Department of Tourism by way of street dancing (which is a main feature of Mardi Gras). This, in fact, gave birth to the celebration of various similar celebrations in different parts of the country (Sandugo included) because the tourism department wanted a street dancing festival to take place every month for the whole year to constantly attract tourists. So, that is how Philippine street dancing festivals got started. They are based on religious celebrations and so people wave religious icons. In Mardi Gras, on the other hand, because it is a kind of "Last-Supper" party, people wave their bananas and papayas.

I think I've read somewhere before that Mardi Gras means Fat Tuesday? Ambot kaha mao ba gyud...

anyways, ganahan kaayo ko magtan-aw sa TV anang Mardi Gras sa Brazil sa una kay mga Brazilian women mga gwapa kaayo, but these days, I see scantily clad people and all I think about are the number of STDs (or STIs) they share among them...

not mine but my cousin Jastinn had the time of her life..

she is a very big fan of Hale a popular Philippine band. (asin fanatic nga if you want to give something like a gift or pasalubong sa iya, maski songhits cover of Hale will make her go gaga na:p )

guess what? when they played a gig at Tac she had the chance to literally hung out with them. i really don't know the whole story. but her night ended up with she and  her friends talking with the band members, borrowing cellphones, snapping pictures, joking around, stambay sa lobby,  gipasakay pa sa van to the city kay wala na jeep and more. wew! ill their pics here. someday. if jastinn can go online na..

I know not all of you knows Hale but it's like for cousin, Hale is the biggest thing. Imagine ang band nga naka puno sa imo room of posters, pictures, cd's imo naka kuyog for the whole night!?!? Swerteha!

amazing that andy williams is still alive, more so that he is still active in doing live performances... i don't blame u if you drifted off to sleep most of the time u were watching his show, he belongs to a much earlier era and so does his music. but he sounds great to oldtimers. at least you enjoyed his version of "moon river".
