Well, we all knew of Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame – the famed sidewalk adorned by stars of stars (now that’s confusing.) It looks like a little like this –
Here’s a list of stars with their names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This, however, caught my attention some years ago when I saw it on the net.
Here in the Philippines, it’s been five years since the country witnessed our own Walk of Fame. Located in the chic business and entertainment complex that is Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City; the Walk of Fame recognizes and aims to immortalize the contribution of artists in the local entertainment scene. Spearheaded by none less than Mr. German Moreno (Walang Tulugaaaaaaaan!) Katipunan ng mga Artistang Pilipino sa Pelikula at Telebisyon (KAPPT) holds a recognition ceremony every 1st of December to welcome new additions to the Walk of Fame.
It is an honor to cover for Ms. Cheche Lazaro (yet again, yes.) It was also the first time I’ve been introduced as a blogger to cover the event. Though dominated by celebrities and artists, this year, however, broadcast journalists and and an athlete were awarded stars and a diverse addition to the Walk. Eastwood City was literally glittering because of the presence of celebrities, both old and young. I can never miss the fact also that it was indeed a fashion orgy also! Check out these —
For some reason, some of my shots got corrupted, so that was pretty much. Anyway. There are still more who came and were awarded a star. All in all, local celebrities Sheryl Cruz, Manilyn Reynes, Coco Martin, Jericho Rosales, Ronnie Ricketts, Lani Mercado-Revilla, Diether Ocampo, Athlete Paeng Nepomuceno, Broadcast Journalists Noli de Castro, Mike Enriquez, Korina Sanchez-Roxas, Mel Tiangco, Cheche Lazaro, Jukebox Queens Imelda Papin, Claire dela Fuente, Eva Eugenio, Veteran Actresses Perla Bautista, Bella Flores, Divina Valencia, Sylvia La Torre, Manager and talk show host Boy Abunda, Musician-Composer Freddie Aguilar, deceased celebrities and artists Norma Blancaflor, Johnny Delgado, Julie Vega, and international actor, filmmaker Jacky Woo were awarded of stars that day.
Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu were also awarded but they did not attend the ceremonies because of acting engagements.
There was a controversy on Jacky Woo’s inclusion despite not being a Filipino. Read it all here.
And finally! A photo with Ms. Cheche Lazaro! WOOT! Thanks Jen for the invite. I didn’t have any other photo taken but this one, and I am happy with it! This is definitely the start of something new for this blog. Stay tuned for more!
I had time to do errands and bills that day, and had dinner with Jen and Fanshen. Had a wonderful time catching up! Hey, you girls owe me a sleepover!
Again, I was covering for Ms. Cheche, that’s why her star was the only saved from the massive file corruption —
Congratulations to this year’s newest additions to the Walk of Fame Philippines! Let your star shine!
