some candid photos from Party Pilipinas

I got tons of pictures to sort out for the Philippine Fashion Week so I will keep you suspended on that topic first. For now, I would like to tell you of another event, our sudden visit to GMA 7, yeah, the network company.

Sudden because I never thought it would happen. At least not soon. But social networking is really amazing. When a famous blogger posted in his wall " who is free on Sunday?", I immediately replied. Already had a hunch. I have always been curious about the talents in these Sunday Musical Variety Shows which are very popular in the Philippines, Party Pilipinas formerly SOP is one of them.

I wanna share with you some candid photos I took during the show. Still lucky to have taken a few as we had an unpleasant time trying to take our dslr's in. Hope you enjoy!!!


We had trouble with the guards since cameras and dslr's are prohibited inside the studio.We had more trouble in our case because ours are dslr's. We understand that professional gadgets such as these need official permission before you can you use them. Every dslr users accept that.

But it was our understanding that we came as bloggers and so we thought we were invited so as to write about the experience. A little documentation will help. In my case, I am a photo blogger,it doesn't make sense if I don't have photos to show ayt? But policies are policies, we later decided to give up and just surrender our cameras in exchange for entrance in the studio.Maybe its just a matter of "the guards doing their job and me being bitter because I am directly affected" kind of situation.


I guess what we were upset about was the lack of system about it. We didn't know know who to talk to officially  as we are ready to sign any waiver or agreement with the management. I hope they look closer on this one.

One piece of advice: If you have plans of bringing a dslr, be sure to communicate it to the proper authorities before coming. We also ha d a lapse of judgment there. Lesson learned.



Few minutes before the start of the show though, Ms Elai the audience coordinator of Party Pilipinas for Director Mark approached me and said she already talked to her superior regarding the matter and that it's okay to bring 1 dslr inside. I felt sorry for John  coz I had to choose my camera over his. I owe it to Ms Elai, and to July too who tried so hard to make things work. He almost got into trouble because of us. But all's well that ends well.

Thank you so much Ms Elai. Now I have some photos to share to all Party Pilipinas fanatics out there.


To be honest, we really enjoyed the show. To see you favorite singers in tv is one thing but its another to see them perform before your eyes. For me, its a confirmation of the respect and admiration I have for them. I had the tendency to favor ASAP for Party Pilipinas and I thought canceling Party Pilipinas altogether and tagging it as a more inferior show is really childish and irresponsible. After the experience, I have become more open minded. This show can blow your mind. It is very good alternative to what the other show can offer and it's really worth checking. What I like about it at the same time is the weekly change in theme. That's refreshing. I have never doubted the talent of Filipinos and watching Party Pilipinas cemented that belief. You guys rock!!!!

Some of my common observations are as follows.

I love the stage, I think it's well designed.
The studio is fully equipped to really boost your party mood.
The audience is really full of energy.
Mark Herras , he can really dance.
There are many young stars, next generation of talents, and many of them are promising.
Mark and Rachelle --nice to know that they are doing well in this show.
Aljur really has a body which is the envy of men and the fantasy of women.lol
Regine, Ogie, Kyla, and Jaya really deserve their status.
Kyla--I find her adorable.
Jaya is very funny in person and she has the ability to connect with her audience- even off cam.
Heart Evangelist is in her prime again. She is really beautiful.

bloggers from left-- Bino, John and Rj

Those are just some of the things I noticed as a first timer. Thanks John ( kumagcow) for letting me use your 300mm lens. Thanks Richard for inviting us. The opportunity in itself is something we are grateful for. Kudos to the team for making Party Pilipinas a Musical variety show that millions of Filipinos look forward to every Sunday!!! Hope to be back for more.

More power guys!!!!
