Kapuso stars rock 7th BacoLaodiat Festival-A A +A
Monday, January 23, 2012
THE 7th BacoLaodiat festival was star-studded as GMA Kapuso stars rocked the city with their participation in what is fast becoming one of the largest festivals of the city.
GMA Network sent its biggest stars led by multi-awarded Claudine Barretto and Kapuso stars Isabel Oli, Bubbles Paraiso, Steven Silva and Michelle Madrigal in the BacoLaodiat festival grand parade Saturday afternoon and later at night staged a concert at the Chopstick Alley stage at the North Capitol Road.
Actors Mark Herras, Ynna Asistio, Alden Richards, Victor Aliwalas and Rachelle Ann Go also had their mall shows at SM City.
The Kapuso stars were very grateful that they took part in the Chinese New Year celebration of Bacolod City.
They consider Bacolod City as a city of great, fun-loving and hospitable people.
Bubbles Paraiso said, “I am so happy to be a part of the BacoLaodiat festival. The people and food are so good. When we were on the float, I have seen everyone smiling. No wonder that Bacolod is called as the City of Smiles because people really smile. Everyone is so hospitable and so nice.”
She greeted everyone luck, good health, good fortune, wealth and happiness. “I hope we are all lucky this 2012.”
Ehra Madrigal said, the city is so organized and clean and people are nice. She is “Rhea” in the Pepito Manoloto, a reality comedy sitcom where Pepito is being portrayed by Negrense child star and internationally and nationally acclaimed singer Joshua Pineda.
Michelle Madrigal said that the people are warm and the food tastes great.
She hopes that everyone will be luckier this year.
Michelle is part of the show “Kung Aagawin mo ang Langit,” which will be finished by the 2nd week of February. She will be doing regional shows and Party Pilipinas every Sunday.
She and her sister Ehra did a show “Kamandag” and a TV guesting drama and they were also together. “It’s quite easy to give out your emotions when you really know your co-star.”
She wants to do an action movie like American actress Zoe Saldana and Angelina Jolie. “I like doing fight scenes,” she said.
It’s a kind a challenging to be an actress because “we rarely sleep. Sometimes we do two projects in one time. But it’s fun because I have always wanted to be an actress since I was a child.
“So now that I am doing and they are giving me good roles, I am very happy that I get to portray different characters. It’s tiring and it’s really hard work.
People think that what we’re doing is easy. But it’s not. You really have to prove yourself. Others are lucky because they became famous out of nowhere. People just love them. But for me, it was a different route. I really have to prove something that I can act. I can do all these things for people to recognize me,” said Michelle. (CNC)
