A night to remember-A A +A

IT WAS a rainy Saturday afternoon when my good friend and Pagcor asset Roy Cajilig invited me to watch the concert of gwapisimo actor Piolo Pascual.
The concert was dubbed, “A Night to Remember,” held at the USLS coliseum last July 5.
At first I was hesitant to join Roy because I have flu symptoms. But after a while, I decided to go so Roy fetched me.
I just wore a light getup—an orange Hermes shirt paired with Louis Vuitton loafer shoes and yellow LV Epi tote bag to protect me from the rain. And to feel more secure, I also had my LV cap and my favorite Prada jacket.
Roy treated me and Eric Alvarado for dinner. Then we proceeded to USLS coliseum where we were met by statuesque Ingrid Resuma-Piccio, Alumni Relations coordinator of USLS, while we were proceeding to the VIP seats.
Even though the show started late for an hour and a little longer than expected, the audience had a good time as evidenced by so many applauses for each performer.
Many fans were rushing towards the stage to take photos of Piolo, ace comedienne Pokwang and the porcelain-beauty actress Julia Barretto.
The concert started with so much laughter while the comedian duo Wacky Kiray and Ace of Laffline and Punchline comedy bars in Manila performed their wacky antics.
I was amazed to see how beautiful Julia Barretto was in person. She has a lot of resemblance to her super pretty aunt and famous actress Gretchen Barretto.
As expected, Pokwang performed well. She made the audience laughed hard many times.
When Piolo first came out on stage, the audience shrieked. He really has a handsome face and sexy body that made many ladies and gays screamed that night. Some were lucky to get a kiss from him.
Adding to his good looks and stature is a good singing voice.
In between songs, Piolo shared that he almost said goodbye to showbiz lately. He only changed his mind when his latest movie with Toni Gonzaga, “Starting Over Again,” became a blockbuster.
I could only imagine how his thousands of fans would be sad when he quits showbiz.
If I am not mistaken, Piolo sang 14 songs and he gave justice to each song to the delight of the audience. He is such a multi-talented actor.
Piolo had delivered a splendid performance in his concert. It was indeed a night to remember.
