I was starstruck. I was on my way home and in the parking lot I saw the vallet drivers taking turns having pictures with a good-looking couple. I couldn’t see clearly who these couple were until I gave my vallet card to the vallet driver, then I saw the couple Zanjoe Marudo and Bea Alonzo. They have turned their backs to leave and have probably walked 8 steps then I mustered the courage and blurted out, “Ms Bea!!!,” then she turned around and I continued talking, “Pwede magpa-picture?” Then she stopped walking and smiled (I didn’t call Zanjoe, so he was just standing behind us, hahaha). She waited until I was able to fix the camera on my phone. The vallet driver took our photos and when it was finished she said, “Salamat,” which meant alot to me.
Later when I got home and checked the photos I saw our disparity. She is 5x taller, 10x more fairskinned, 20x sexier, 100x more beautiful and I felt like an alalay beside her. But then again, I remember her simple yet deep one-liner, “Salamat.”
I, the midget brownskinned mukhang alalay need not have to compare myself. Her “salamat” just caused to dissipate insecurities about myself and our disparity or differences. She is also and only, just like me, human after all. Maraming Salamat Bea Alonzo for making me realize that :-) #beaalonzo #zanjoemarudo
@msleasalonga “Autograph Signing” in #playlist35 concert. She said, “I remember you. You watched me in God of Carnage.” Ok, I am kidding, she doesn’t remember. This is my umpteenth time to watch her live in a show, but I am still starstricken & awestricken everytime I ask for her autograph. Thanks @pb_ong for the pics!
