Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

This Made My Night

Okay, so we all know Manuel Quezon III, but when I showed the other re-tweet to my young junior copywriter, her reaction was, “Who’s Arnold Gamboa?!”

Apat Na Sikat. Dondon Nakar, Winnie Santos, Lala Aunor and Arnold Gamboa. Yup, he’s the cute one on the right.

Man, blast from my freakin’ 70s past! I remember watching that show, though I don’t remember anything specific, neither sight nor sound. All I remember are the names of the child stars.

Now I’m sure he was following MLQ3, not me, on Twitter. Still, there was a surreal second or two. And, in fairness, cute pa rin siya.

Ah, these young punks! They don't know nuthin'!

But maybe we should give them a break, Joel. After all, Manolo does get around.

Oop. That didn't quite come out the way I meant.

Still - is that Arnold Gamboa now? Well, well, looks like he certainly ripened deliciously. I'd hit that over the labanos twinkie used to be any day.

I DIDN'T KNOW MAY SHOW SI SIR ARNOLD NUNG 70'S! Haha. Met him through a common Christian friend, si Sir Ganns Deen. Thanks for this nifty info! :P

I actually know the guy... errr... the "delicious" guy on the second picture. (can't stop laughing)

Nope, he's really not the Arnold Gamboa of "Apat na Sikat" fame.

Although, he'd really dig it that someone thought him cute and err... "delicious".

Check him out.
