Yes, Virginia! I was there!
I didn’t gate-crash. I was invited.
But boo-hoo, Gerald Anderson didn’t recognize me anymore
I met him when he was still a high school student
He just came from basketball game then
I never had an inkling that he’d be this popular
Back then, Gerald was a regular adolescent
He loved hip hop, basketball and his barkada
Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition has yet to come
Look how the boy has grown to become
Heart-throb. Hot Hunk.
Gerald of the yesteryear’s is no more
He turned twenty-one last Saturday
He has yet to reach the peak of his career
But has remained to be a dutiful son and loving brother
And a true-blue loyal General from Gensan
What would a party for Gerald be without Kim Chiu?
Kim arrived quite glamorously late
She was resplendent in red
Ever smiling. Ever pretty.
And she made Gerald shed a tear or two
Did I feel the connection between them?
Alas, no! Not yet… Maybe in the future.
I felt that they’re there to protect each other
Not love. Not just yet.
For now, protection is good enough
Remember Fred of the PBB Teen Edition?
He’s looked more mature but still a looker
I thought that he would make it big in showbusiness
Unfortunately, he’s no Coco Martin
He looked like a young Julio Diaz
And that isn’t good news
Even Nanay Dionisia was startstruck
She was every bit of a movie fan
Proud and happy to be with her idol
This time around, Gerald played the fan part too
He was obviously happy to be with the Philippines’ most popular mom!
Ever the gracious matinee idol
Gerald danced with a hodgepodge of lady guests
Most of them, am certain, Gerald met the first time
But he was game and just danced away
You’ve got to give it to the guy
He sure got class and breeding
And rightly so, Gerald thanked his mom, Vangie, for what he is today
There seem to be something brewing in the Anderson household
Both mother and younger brother were crying
While Gerald was speaking about family
Whatever it is, Gerald will make things be well again
He has indeed grown up
Fast but not necessarily Furious
Paseo del Sol did it again
It proved to all and sundry
That they’re the best party place for an intimate event
I’m even thinking of my 47th happening here
There’s just too many possibilities at the Paseo
That, my faithful readers, is another story to tell
And by the way, a million thanks to Apple Greatson

Sana ikaw din ang kodaker sa birthday ko…hehehehe!
