‘I Remember a Boy’

With the excitement of many leaders of State flying to the Philippines this coming week, I heard many of the Metro-Manilans have made plans for their “forced holidays”.  

Many people who live in the metropolis have started to enjoy their long weekend and are now packing their bags to vacation in nearby provinces….others are flying to the different resorts in the Visayas and Mindanao….and still others have booked themselves and their families to spend their long weekend abroad.

For those who are staying in Manila during this weekend, you may wish to treat yourselves to watching a musical in the Quezon City area (away from Roxas Blvd. where so much action is expected to take place). Here’s something almost equally exciting to do this weekend.

The Artist Playground’s Playlist TRACK 2 proudly presents “I REMEMBER A BOY” - an original musical revue featuring OPM’s most classic hits on Nov. 11 – 12 at Arts Above located at West Venue Bldg., 112 West Avenue, QC.

Made by Millenials, for Millenials, AP’s Playlist, Track 2: I Remember A Boy, is about a group of friends who reunite at a cafe they once frequented when they were still college students.

They shall recall how their friendship came together, how they fell in love and fell apart. While reminiscing on their past - remembering the best and worst memories - they unearth feelings which were once laid to rest.  With ties severed and hearts broken through the years.  

Imagine what may happen in this short reunion as you allow them to rekindle old flames and begin anew.

This fresh yet nostalgic story of love and friendship that transcends time will be featuring six young, experienced and talented performing artists: Kathleen Francisco, Cathrine Go, Philippe Go, Joe Henson, Mariella Laurel and Miko Manguba. 

With musical direction by award-winning Jesse Lucas, I REMEMBER A BOY will relive to the younger audience the beautiful and meaningful melodies of classic OPM hits dating from the 70s to the 90s.

The Young and the not – so – young will definitely enjoy watching this musical…..afterall, it is said that music is the universal language of the soul and everyone understands that language! 

The very gracious and super-loved lady, Letty Hahn, celebrated her Nth birthday at Chef Jessie’s fine dining restaurant in Rockwell with a few members of her family and a big number of friends.  Letty’s son, Willi Hahn and her daughter, Suzette Lopez, are still in Europe with their families and could not join the rest of the clan for a super good meal that day.

Although the members of Letty’s brood were not all present, one hundred twenty of her closest friends were. Special guest of the day was Fr. Gerry Deveza – also known as the “healing priest”.

Letty, that in lieu of gifts, requested for her 120 friends to donate to Fr. Gerry’s   Healing Servants Foundation Inc. instead.  

Fr. Gerry runs a school in Bicol where all the students are scholars. Part of his educational project is to encourage the young students do their part in protecting the environment by planting organic vegetables which will be sold in Manila starting this coming December and weekly for the rest of the coming years.

Attending Letty’s luncheon was such a pleasure. 

Good food, fine conversation, the finest company, and the presence of Fr. Gerry Deveza altogether made Letty’s birthday a big bang!!!
