I will start with the biography of Ms. Lea salonga

Salonga made her professional debut at the age of 7 in Repertory Philippines' production of The King And I and has since appeared in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Fiddler On The Roof, The Rose Tattoo, Annie, The Sound Of Music, The Goodbye Girl, Paper Moon and The Fantasticks. At the age of 10, she began her recording career and received a gold record for her first album, Small Voice.
She has also hosted her own musical television show, Love, Lea, which she hosted with her brother, Gerard. She has also opened for Stevie Wonder during his concerts in Manila.

In 1984, Lea was one of the Filipino representatives to the Asian Radio and TV Artistes Exchange held in Singapore. It was a dream come true to her when in 1985, she was chosen to open for Menudo, a Puerto Rican pop group that is popular in the Philippines during their concerts in Manila. She has also recorded two songs and a music video with Charlie Masso, a former Menudo member, for the Young People's Project, a campaign to encourage sexual responsibility in adolescents.

In 1989, Lea went to London to play the role of Kim in the hit musical Miss Saigon for which she received a Sir Laurence Olivier Award, and in 1991 went on to portray that role on Broadway where she garnered the Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics' Circle Awards and Theater World Awards. While in Miss Saigon, Lea recorded the singing voice of Jasmine for the Walt Disney animated hit, Aladdin, and soon after recorded the role of Tuptim in a new recording of The King and I with Julie Andrews, Ben Kingsley and The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.

In 1993, Lea played the role of street waif Eponine in the Broadway production of Les Misérables. She has also appeared in the London and Honolulu productions of Les Misérables. She has also performed the song "A Whole New World" at the 65th Annual Academy Awards, where the song won an Oscar. In the same year, she released her self-titled international debut album with Atlantic Records, which has gone platinum and gold in parts of Southeast Asia.
In 1994, Lea played the role of Eliza Doolittle in Repertory Philippines' My Fair Lady and the role of the Witch in Singapore Repertory Theatre's Into The Woods. She was also the opening act for Frank Sinatra's Manila concerts, then performed at the Hollywood Bowl in a concert entitled Arabian Nights as part of World Cup Week 1994.

Lea also played the role of Sandy Dumbrowski in Team Image Entertainment's production of Grease in Manila, and appeared in a special concert called The Music Of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg with other Filipino artists performing selections from the musicals Les Misérables and Miss Saigon. She made her US television film debut when she played the role of Geri Riordan in Hallmark Hall Of Fame's Redwood Curtain on ABC with Jeff Daniels and John Lithgow. Lea also recorded a single with Peabo Bryson called "How Wonderful We Are" which is part of a new album called People, which also includes selections by other artists such as Vanessa Williams, Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan. She made yet another appearance at the Hollywood Bowl in a concert called Music Tells A Tale, appearing with Tyne Daly and Reese Holland.
Lea also participated in the Les Misérables 10th Anniversary Concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, as well as the star heavy tribute concert for Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Hey Mr Producer filmed last May and subsequently released on album, video and book.

In 1998, she also appeared as the singing voice of the lead for a Walt Disney animated film called Mulan. Moreover, BMG Records (Pilipinas) released her album aptly called, "In Love" which reached quintuple platinum in the Philippines.

In 1999, Lea came full circle as she reprised her award-winning role of Kim on Broadway's Miss Saigon and graced the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Miss Saigon in London last September 29, 1999.

BMG Records (Pilipinas) also released Ms. Lea Salonga's album, "By Heart", which contains revival compositions of Ryan Cayabyab, Jose Mari Chan, Louie Ocampo, Willy Cruz, Boy Katindig, Butch Monserrat, Allan Ayque, Roman Cruz, Jr. and Odette Quesada with musical arrangements by Ryan Cayabyab and Gerard Salonga.

In October 1999, she portrayed the role of Sonia Walsk in the Singapore Repertory Theatre production of the Neil Simon musical, They're Playing Our Song.

The Year 2000 proved to be a busy year for Ms. Salonga as it ushered in two successful solo concerts ('Millenium' and 'Homecoming' Concert), two benefit shows ('Best of Manila' and 'Songs From The Screen') and numerous albums such as her two-volume live album and VCD, the relaunching of "By Heart" with "Fallin'" and "I Still Believe In Love" from They're Playing Our Song and her first-ever Christmas album.
Lea also performed in the Manila production of They're Playing Our Song and Miss Saigon.

Immediately after her stint in Manila, Lea returned on Broadway's Miss Saigon ending its historical run last January 28, 2001.

She has also appeared in the CBS Daytime Soap Opera, As The World Turns as Lien Hughes.

Recently, she finished her stint as Mei-Li in the Flower Drum Song revival in Los Angeles.

Lea has come home again in Manila to perform in the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play, Proof this January 2002.

Ms. Lea Salonga has performed and appeared in numerous concerts and television shows in the United States, the Philippines and around the world.

Actor's death renews Asian fear of mystery syndrome

REUTERS [ TUESDAY, APRIL 02, 2002 8:56:12 PM ]

ANILA: The death of a young actor in the Philippines last week has put the spotlight on a mystery ailment which kills healthy Asian men in their sleep.

Filipinos call it bangungot or the nightmare syndrome. Victims are heard moaning just before they die, which is usually in the middle of the night, doctors say.

Romantic hero Ricardo Yan died in his sleep last Friday at just 27 years of age.

Doctors said on that Tuesday he died of haemorrhagic pancreatitis leading to cardiac arrest. But there was no word on why the ailment should strike an apparently healthy young man.

Yan was on holiday at a beach resort with a group of friends. Autopsy results showed he had drunk only a moderate amount of alcohol, equivalent to about two bottles of beer, prior to his death. There was no evidence he had taken any drugs.

Filipino doctors - who call bangungot the Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death syndrome - said that it generally struck men between 30 and 40 years of age, although the youngest known victim was only to be 17. Women are usually not affected.

"We have not autopsied any woman who died of bangungot," said Dr Edgardo Gueco, chief of the national police medico-legal division. "Based on our observations, the victims had eaten heavily or drunk heavily before going to sleep," he said in a television interview.

What happened during sleep was a mystery because the bangungot victims never woke up, cardiologist Erdie Fadreguilan of the state-run Philippine General Hospital said.

"The findings were that something went wrong with the rhythm of the heart while they were sleeping," Fadreguilan said, citing results of autopsies of 328 bangungot cases in the Philippines from 1957 to 1987.

In their last moments, the victims were usually heard moaning or groaning in their sleep, as if suffering from "some form of agony," he said. "We had no way of knowing what happened because they did not survive."

Stranger still, bangungot usually claims its victims at about 3 o'clock in the morning, doctors said.

Fadreguilan said that studies showed bangungot cases occurred mainly in South-East Asian countries like the Philippines, Vietnam and Laos, but a similar illness had been reported among Japanese men.

In the US, only Vietnamese refugees have suffered from the condition, he said, but spurned a theory it could have a cultural or hereditary explanation.

"Even if you move to different places, like the refugees going to the US, the men can still suffer from it," Fadreguilan said. "Whether they move outside of their home country does not decrease the risk of them suffering from it."

Local doctors believe a possible cause of the condition could be the high carbohydrate diet of Asians, who eat rice as their staple. But no one has been able to pinpoint why rice should have any such effect on a select few or why millions are unaffected.

In Manila, thousands of unbelieving fans flocked to Yan's wake.

"This can't happen to him, this can't happen to me, this can't happen especially to him," Yan's long-time girlfriend actress Claudine Barretto told a television station. "I couldn't believe it."

La Salle Greenhills-- Divine Child Chapel
Rico's remains were brought to his alma mater for his family, friends, and fans to pay their last respects. Flowers and photos reflected the radiance of the life that Rico led. A solemn mass was celebrated every night at 7 p.m., after which, Rico's loved ones would share their most treasured memories of the actor. Familiar encounters and songs would never fail to bring tears once again to the eyes of those close to Rico.

Talent managers, roadies, and artists from Talent Center, who have known Rico, not only as an actor but as a true person as well, were present to extend their deepest condolences to his bereaved family.

Coney Reyes, who came up in front to relive the purity of Rico's heart, talked about him being a role model for the youth. Having earned a degree in Business Management, Rico made people see the value of one's education; and with his foundation and other charity works, Rico Yan has not only become a star, but also a light and inspiration to those who know him. It's a bitter fact Rico can no longer be with us physically, however, his memory would always linger, giving all his family and friends the reason and determination to continue what he has started.

ABS-CBN Studios
The grief-stricken ABS-CBN family aired special tributes in Rico Yan's memory. The actor's Magandang Tanghali Bayan family had a weeklong special, Isang Linggong Pasasalamat, in thanksgiving for all the joy and cheer Rico has brought to their lives. Other shows, which include The Buzz, Pipol, The Correspondents, and Isyu, also presented a loving remembrance of Rico Yan's intensity as an actor, a leader, and a servant.

Showbiz friends also gathered last Wednesday in WhattaGuy, Para Sa'yo 'to Bro to celebrate the life of the friend who will never be lost in their hearts and memories. The group, led by Rico's best friends, Dominic Ochoa and Marvin Agustin, gathered at the ABS-CBN Studios in song and prayer, bringing back to Rico the melody and hope he has so tenderly brought to all of us.

La Salle Gymnasium
Rico's remains were transferred to the La Salle Gymnasium where the final mass before the funeral was held. Special passes were given out to the fans who have waited in line for days to see the young actor for the last time. Countless friends joined Rico's family in a large but solemn gathering to thank Rico for bringing special meaning to their lives. Fr. Caluag, Rico's spiritual adviser, gave a homily that touched everyone, making them accept the truth of the Lord's plan, and His promise of eternal joy.

After the mass, Rico's Mom gave the eulogy, saying that she has finally come to understand meaning of her son's death. Mrs. Yan further said that she has lost a son, but that day, all of those present stood as one family, bound by Rico's loving memory.

Manila Memorial Park
As early as 8 am, Thursday, an estimated 4000 people were already waiting at the Manila Memorial Park. Thousands more arrived as the time to lay Rico to rest drew near.

At 12 noon, when the sun was at its brightest and highest point, Rico Yan--actor, son, brother, friend--was put to his final resting place. Friends from in and outside of show business, whom Rico has touched in one way or another, stood before the family mausoleum, offering flowers and unending love.

Farewell, friend, you will be sorely missed.

thrid article

With the passing away of Rico Yan last Good Friday, a lot of other issues had been sidetracked: the Erap trial, the still-unsolved murder of Nida Blanca, the Joey Marquez-Alma Moreno/Jomari Yllana-Aiko Melendez separation, the Abu Sayyaf loot and the fact that we are a starving and backward nation.

Please don’t think I am being insensitive and unsympathetic, but I think the media coverage of Rico Yan’s death was blown way out of proportion.

I was in a barrio called San Joaquin in the Western Visayas when I learned about the actor’s death. A text message from Maila Gumila read: "Rico Yan died in his sleep at the Dos Palmas resort. Dominic (Ochoa) found him stiff already. Cardiac arrest." My initial reaction was to text her back and my message to her was: "I hope this is not a joke." Then, I decided to call Maila’s number and spoke to her to verify the news. She said that yes, it is true.

A few minutes later, a lot of other text messages came in – including one from Sharmaine Arnaiz asking people to pray for the repose of Rico’s soul. But there were also other nasty text messages implying that the actor died of drug overdose. (This was, of course, later proven by the autopsy report to be untrue.)

The media man in me, of course, saw the newsworthiness of it all. But, alas, there was no live broadcast that day – being a Good Friday and, supposedly, even the following day, Black Saturday. (GMA-7 and ABS-CBN eventually decided to do special news features last Saturday.)

By Easter Sunday, however, all local networks were scheduled to return to regular programming. But I suddenly remembered that the two showbiz talk shows airing that day, S-Files and The Buzz, had already taped their respective episodes and everyone was supposed to have been on vacation. When I checked in at the pre-departure area of the new airport on my way to Bacolod City, in fact, I was told by the people manning the x-ray machines that Paolo Bediones, who was on his way to Cebu, had also checked in minutes ahead of me.

But with Rico Yan’s death, everyone was called back to work and made to do a live broadcast. Both S-Files and The Buzz enjoyed high ratings last Sunday – and this didn’t come as a surprise to me anymore because, with the absence of regular programming days before, everyone was hungry for news about the death of Rico Yan. (And with all sorts of speculations about his death coming from all directions, everyone was curious to know the truth).

I really salute the men and women of S-Files and The Buzz for the very comprehensive coverage they did on Rico Yan’s death. (It was a pity Startalk couldn’t go on air that week because it was Black Saturday.)

However, I was bothered by the coverage done by the news programs on television with regard to the actor’s death. It was hysterical, to say the least. It was as if there was nothing else going on in the world except for the death of Rico. (I’m sure the Yan family really would have preferred to have just been left alone and grieve in private.) And for one week, every other show in ABS-CBN – except for the cartoons in the morning – had nothing but features on Rico Yan.

I can’t blame television, of course, for harping on this issue no end. After all, that was what everyone was talking about. At the pre-departure area of the Iloilo airport on my way back to Manila, for instance, copies of a local daily, The Informer, were distributed to the waiting passengers at the lounge. From the back area where I was seated, I could see how everyone was glued to that page that carried a story on Rico Yan’s death.

Even now that Rico had been laid to rest, people still haven’t stopped talking about the circumstances surrounding his death. And I won’t be surprised if I’m told by my writers as we walk into the GMA-7 studio this afternoon that our main feature in Startalk would still be about Rico Yan’s death.

It is easy to understand all the hoopla about the actor’s death. To begin with, his death came all too sudden. And even if he was really no superstar, he was a certified heartthrob. He was young, good-looking and had seemingly boundless energy. It was really a waste that he had to go this soon – especially after we are told he had helped a lot of people in his own little way. It is sad to see somebody with a whole life and a bright future still ahead of him die so young.

But I feel saddened still over the fact that while the entire nation mourned the death of Rico Yan, no one seemed to have cared about the almost simultaneous passing away of Lucio San Pedro and Levi Celerio, two National Artists who have contributed a lot in the field of Philippine music.

Although I don’t condemn those who chose to spend time, energy and even resources pushing and elbowing their way through the crowd to get a final glimpse of their favorite matinee idol lying in state – rather than paying their last respects to our two national treasures, San Pedro and Celerio, I have to say that, surely, we’ve got our priorities mixed up. This is really something to grieve about.

Claudine flies to HK; solon wants House to honor Rico

By Rey Arquiza
The Philippine Star 04/06/2002

How do you heal the wounds of a lost love?

Spend five days in Hong Kong. That’s what movie actress Claudine Barreto, former girlfriend of the late matinee idol Rico Yan, set out to do the day after the actor’s funeral.

She left yesterday for the former Crown Colony, the shopping paradise for many Filipinos, on board Cathay Pacific Airways, accompanied by her sisters Gretchen and Marjorie, two nieces, two helpers and two bodyguards.

Her face etched with a mixture of sorrow over the tragic end of Yan and rage over the hostility of his family and fans toward her during the burial Thursday, Barreto begged off from answering questions from reporters at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, saying, "I want to avoid any interview at the moment...."

Yan, who died at age 27 in his sleep on Good Friday at the Dos Palmas resort in Palawan, was interred at around noon at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City with some 20,000 people in attendance, composed mostly of his grieving if also unruly fans.

Barreto was said to have been barred by the actor’s family, for reasons not disclosed by them, from getting near the casket during the Mass at the La Salle-Greenhills gym in Mandaluyong City preceding the funeral motorcade to the memorial park. She was sighted along with her sister Marjorie and her brother-in-law Dennis Padilla at a distance from the funeral rites and left before the burial was over.

At the airport, Barreto promised to "bare all" when she returns from Hong Kong on Wednesday and set the record straight after she was pictured as the "villain" in the death of Yan, especially on the reason of their breakup after a four-year relationship.

The young actress said she wanted to "rest for awhile" and "think of the wonderful things that Rico and I shared when he was still alive."

Barreto also said the death of Yan had affected her very much, it would probably take a long time for her wounds to heal. She said she might have to stay out of the country for some time.

She said soon after her five-day stay in Hong Kong, she might have to leave again for a more extensive rest and vacation away from what she described as "unfounded rumors."

Meanwhile, a Mindanao congressman wants the House of Representatives to honor the late Ricardo Carlos Castro Yan, better known as actor Rico Yan, as a role model of the youth.

In Resolution 495, Rep. Juan Miguel Zubiri (Lakas, Bukidnon) said the death of Yan "has brought grief to a great number of our countrymen whose lives he had touched in a positive way, from as far north as Batanes and as far south as Jolo."

He said Yan lent his popularity for the common good by serving as spokesman for the Department of Education, endorsing the national government’s youth programs and setting an example to young people by being a good student and a responsible member of the community.

Yan was a diligent and hardworking student at the De la Salle University and was one of the few actors who earned a college degree despite the pressures of an acting career, Zubiri said.

Despite his success, the late actor remained a humble, approachable, unassuming, and helpful person, added Zubiri, who was a friend and business partner of Yan.

Sen. Blas Ople, on the other hand, endorsed yesterday the founding of the Rico Yan Youth Foundation headed by the actor’s brother Bobby as a vehicle to perpetuate Yan’s memory and his desire to serve underprivileged young Filipinos.

The senator said the death of Yan has touched a universal chord in the Filipino nation and has made him an icon of Filipino youth –"the wholesome kid as a model for young Filipinos."

The senator also deeply regretted the loss of the two national artists for music –composer Lucio San Pedro and lyricist Levi Celerio –who died one after the other last week.

"As a nation we are greatly impoverished by their passing, but their inspiration will live on," Ople said. — With Jess Diaz, Aurea Calica

music and lyrics by Trina Belamide

It's Valentine's Day again
Chocolates and roses, dinner by candelight
But not for everybody
There'll be three less roses given away tonight
'Coz Jimmy's girl got on a plane
He tried to stop her from leaving but tried in vain
And he'd hand her three roses now
But she lives so far away
To a lonely heart, how does one say
Happy Valentine's Day

It's Valentine's Day again
Long-time lovers lighting the fire once more
But it's gonna be cold tonight
For someone whose lover walked right out the door
See, Anna's fighting back the tears
Broke up with her beau for nine long years
And she's throwing her dreams of walking down the aisle away
To a broken heart, how does one say
Happy Valentine's Day

Cruel, oh so cruel
Be with your lover and be glad
And if you're without a lover
Well, that's just too bad
Cruel, oh so cruel
No other day like this
Can make you long so much
For the one you miss

It's Valentine's Day again
Jay's got the flowers, but somehow it's not the same
Though he knows April's happy
'Coz all he can do is set them on her grave
It's been two years since she passed on
But somehow the pain still lingers on
And no other day can magnify it like this day
To a grieving heart, how does one say
Happy Valentine's Day

How do you say
Happy Valentine's Day

How do I begin to convince myself
There's just no point in going on this way
You're never around for me
There's always some place you've gotta be
I might as well just walk away

But how do I begin to do what's right
You haven't exactly been untrue
I know I'm gonna set you free
And yet the thought is killing me
How do I say goodbye to you?

What's it gonna take, baby, to let you go
I've got to, I know
But what's it gonna take, baby, to make me see
You're not for me
What's it gonna take, baby, can't let you go
But we've got to part
Guess it's gonna take a broken heart
Guess it's gonna take a broken heart

How do I begin to face the truth
That this love of ours was never meant to be
If it's gonna take seeing you
Falling in love with someone new
Well maybe, that's the way to set you free


I know I gotta set you free
And yet the though is killing me
How do I say goodbye to you

I've seen my friend in love before
He can love with all his heart
And I believe he can love you oh so well
If you only knew his past
A long-time love that didn't last
Because his angel belonged to someone else

She loved him more than anyone
But she had to say goodbye
Heartbroken, he thought his days would end
But now you've come into his life
I see the sparkle in his eyes
Maybe you could make him learn to love again

Won't you be his angel for life and never leave
Won't you be his angel for life 'cause I believe
He can learn to love you like he did his angel before
Won't you be his angel and love him forevermore

He doesn't know the meaning of
An everlasting love
Could the one to show him possibly be you
He takes to you and that's a start
In time, you'll have each other's hearts
Say you will, stay with him his whole life through


Be his angel for life
Take the place of the one asking you to set his heart free
Won't you be his angel and love him for me

Gotta start learning
Gotta find me somebody new
And learn to live without you

It's gonna be hard
The days and nights are gonna be longer
And no one can ever really know what I'm going through
I've gotta be strong
Kiss the past goodbye and start over
It may be the hardest thing to do

There'll be brighter days ahead for me
Now that you've set me free

High above the humble manger
Shines a star so bright
And all of the world shall remember
His birth on this holy night

There is more to this little Child
Than meets the eye
Mush more to this little Child than we see
For this little Child shall set the world free
He is heaven's gift to you and me

Do you see this little Child
Asleep on the bed of hay
Do you know what this little Child
Will grow up to be someday
And show us what it means to forgive
This little Child will someday give up his life so we can live

Everybody sees her as a future heaturner, a looker, just like her eminent resemblance to bombshell JOYCE JIMENEZ, ANGELENE AGUILAR takes it as a compliment bu also takes it in strides as she is determined to carve her own niche on the wings of fame.

Indeed, Angelene seemed to be destined to be a star as she is part of that popular teenshow.

"I was discovered when I watched the G-Mik Nation concert which was held in my hometown in Calamba, Laguna," she recalled.

She remembered that in the actual show, she was picked from the crowd in the ramp and modeling contest which she eventually won.

"After I won, Mr. David Fabros of ABS-CBN offered me to apply as talent and said I just drop by to submit my bio data," she said.

Angelene's parents were at first hesitant but her persistence paid off. "My father sent my biodata and picture through the internet and Mr. David replied and told me to report to ABS for audition. Luckily the VTR went fine and I was chosen to be part of Star Circle Batch 9," she quipped.

Her first project was Da Body and Da Guard with Joyce Jimenez and AGA MUHLACH. Then after playing as DANILO BARRIO's love interest in the movie Cool Dudes she was later introduced as Bea in G-Mik.

ut Dominic Ochoa in a priest's cassock and, with his comedy boyish face, he could pass for a "man of God."

Then again we are reminded of his famous gay role in the defunct Lab Ko Si Babes, the sitcom that propelled pop icon Jolina Magdangal into a household figurine. For that, Dominic was given a Best Actor trophy in the Star Awards for Television in 2001.

He was so "gay" a number of screaming fans surmised that, behind the camera, Dominic is, yes, a kafatid!

Now, watching him on ABS-CBN 2's noontime show, MTB, the primetime sitcom Whattamen, and the ubiquitous Smart Talk-Text TV commercials, Dominic is indeed one gay actor. Gay, in the sense that he is happy, after all, more offers are coming in not only in Endorsement Town and TV shows, but in Moviedom.

Star Cinema's Got 2 Believe has Dominic enacting a lawyer whose fiancée is lead actress Claudine Barretto. It's a kilig movie that looks like a clone of the Jennifer Lopez starrer The Wedding Planner, and Claudine essays the role of the wedding coordinator. The male lead is Claudine's private-life squeeze, Rico Yan.

Got 2 Believe contains "a kissing scene between Claudine and me. It's a scene we shot for three hours," Dominic revealed.

One could imagine how such would affect Rico. (Dominic has referred to Rico as "my best friend in real life.")

"No naman, before the shooting, naghalikan muna sila," Dominic giggled," and siyempre, nag-usap na kami ni Rico. Nag-mouthwash akong mabuti. During the taping, wala si Rico, natulog yata somewhere sa set. Sa akin naman, it's just a job. The thought nga na naghahalikan muna sina Rico and Claudine before the shooting, parang naghalikan na rin kami ni Rico.

I just use a little bit of article so it does not scroll too long

e broke his promise again!"

Between sobs, Claudine Barretto broke her silence yesterday afternoon in an interview with Boy Abunda on ABS-CBN's The Buzz about Rico Yan, her former boyfriend who died in his sleep due to hemorrhagic pancreatitis on Good Friday at the Dos Palmas resort in Palawan.

Choking with emotion, Claudine said that before Rico left for Dos Palmas with five friends, among them his MTB and Whattamen collegue Dominic Ochoa, the actor promised to "fix everything" as soon as he came back.

"But he broke his promise," cried Claudine, who had to be sedated when told about Rico's sudden death while she and her family were vacationing in Subic.

Rico did come back at around 6:30 p.m. on Good Friday, his body in a leather body bag, accompanied by his father Roby and brother Bobby first to Camp Crame for autopsy and then to the Arlington funeral home on Araneta Avenue in Quezon City for embalming.

The remains now lie at a chapel at the La Salle Greenhills, with the burial set for Thursday, April 4, after the 9 a.m. Mass at the Manila Memorial Park in Parañaque City. He turned 27 last March 14.

Even if they had reportedly broken up three weeks ago, Claudine said that she and Rico were in the process of ironing things out and that Rico even called to say "I'm sorry" before he left for Dos Palmas. "Give me time to think," Claudine quoted Rico as saying. "When I come back after Holy Week, I would know what to do. Everything would be okay."

Whatever their problem was, according to Claudine, they had already forgiven each other.

She then admitted that last March 5, the day after they celebrated their fourth anniversary as sweethearts and barely a week after their last movie Got 2 Believe started showing, she and Rico did have a big fight "over nonsense, over nothing," leading to their reported break-up.

"In fact, Rico invited me to go with their group to Dos Palmas, a trip they'd been planning as early as December last year, but she said she begged off because she wanted to spend time with her family in Subic, including her parents, older sister Marjorie and her husband Dennis Padilla and their kids.

Rico's father Roby disclosed that the Yans initially planned to take a family vacation at the Plantation Bay.

Recalling the events that Good Friday, Claudine said that she suspected that something was wrong when she was left alone by her companions at the lunch table.

"That day, Marjorie told me that my Dad wanted to talk to me, so I went down. The first thing my Dad told me was, 'Be strong." Then he broke the bad news, 'Rico passed away in Dos Palmas.' I couldn't cry. My mind just went blank; I could feel my whole body trembling. I stood up and tried to call Rico on his cell-phone, but it was off.' I couldn't breath. I was hoping that he was just in the hospital still breathing. I was telling myself. 'This can't happen to him, this can't happen to me, this can't happen especially to him!' I couldn't believe it."

He declares: "Education is the key and the only weapon to solve the social ills in the society."


Rico The Actor
After his launch as a member of original Star Circle, the tremendous impact he made immediately cast Rico as the barkada leader of the youth-oriented show "Gimik!" where he was together with other matinee idols Patrick Garcia and Paolo Contis. He then moved on to star in primetime drama sries such as "Mula Sa Puso" and "Saan Ka Man Naroroon." He was also featured in Star Drama Theatre twice, a feat which is difficult to match for other young actors.

Undoubtedly popular, he also inked a contract with Star Cinema which made him part of blockbuster hits like "Gimik the Movie," "Kay Tagal Kitang Hinintay" and "Mula Sa Puso the Movie."

Rico The Product Endorser
Had he not decided to pursue a full-time showbiz career, Rico would still have made an impact as an image model. His distinct market appeal has made him a favorte of advertisers who knew he would make a convincing product endorser. Thus he can be seen everywhere with his multiple tv, radio and print ad commercials endorsing products which range from biscuits, snack foods and pizzas, to facial cares and clothing, to mobile phones, watches and just about everything.

Rico The Businessman
Nothing can stop young actor Rico Yan from venturing into business and saving for the future. It seems that acting and commercial modelling are not enough for this matinee idol. He also wants to ace the handling and managing of businesses with his trusted partners.

In terms of management, Rico is quite knowledgeable about being an entrepreneur as he put into practice the theories he learned in school. Together with some friends, he opened the restaurant, Tequila Joe's in Makati City and Timbuktu Cafe in Malate. The investments are a great success. They overflow with celebrities and friends day and night.

He's also into the fruitshake business. Aside from being the marketing director, he is of course, the image model of Orbitz, a Tapioca-based Fruitshake.

Rico The Official DECS Youth Role Model
Rico, cited for his exemplary academic achievements, was enlisted by the Department of Education Culture and Sports as the official "role model" to the 17 million public elementary and high school students nationwide. His achievements both as an artist and as a student, and his values and his integrity that are worth the emulation of the youth and students served as the basis for his appointment. Seldom do we see a prominent artist with such impressive credentials.

His job is to lead several youth development programs such as Youth Entrepreneurship and Cooperatives in Schools (YECS) Program, the Vitalization of Youth Science Clubs, and the Responsible Students for Active Governance, a nationwide student training program. He also founded the Pinoy 'Yan Movement. This movement initiated, on its own, activities which instill positive Filipino values, environmental consciousness, educational excellence and the recognition of youth and student achievers.

The Business Management graduate of the De La Salle University is likewise the official spokesperson of the Center for Students and Co-Curricular Affairs (CSCA). CSCA programs are geared for practical application in the campus or community. These include the Student Leaders Training Program, Youth Entreprenuership and Cooperatives in Schools Program, and other programs promoting participation in scouting, and math and science clubs.

"Education is the key and the only weapon to solve the social ills in the society," he stresses.

Rico presses for students to use IT. He noted the "tremendous asset" the technology can bring to students, particulary "access to libraries and databases we are not able to build up." Rico also strongly highlights the education department's campaigns on promoting environmental conservation and opposing drug abuse, gambling, pre-marital sex and campus violence. He hopes to enhance the holistic development of students by drumming up support for, and participation in the various in-school co-curricular activities.

Rico has indeed become a "four-man" and has definitely gone a long way since he was first introduced to the public via the pioneering batch of the ABS-CBN Talent Center's Star Circle. He has accomplished so much in his young life-TV and movie actor, product endorser, businessman, and Youth Role Model-- and will continue to reap the rewards of his hardwork. With his talent and experience, success in almost anything Rico put's his mind to is virtually assured, be it a showbiz career, a business endeavor, a commercial endorser, or a public service venture

Piolo is a source of inspiration for me, I admit. When we are together, Piolo is so transparent and true, at walang pretentious sa katawan. Ito yung mga qualities na nagustuhan ko talaga sa kanya, kaya ako napalapit sa kanya. Ang hindi nyo alam, maraming beses na kaming nagging "shoulder to cry on" ng isa't isa. I really believe na nagwo-work ang tandem namin onscreen dahil offcam, malalin na rin ang aming friendship at masasabi kong meron na kaming pinagsamahan.

Ano nga ba ang masasabi ko tungkol kay Piolo? Mula mababaw hanggang malalim; yung nakakatawa at nakaka-touch; yung fun at yung seryoso. Eto lahat-lahat ang pagkakakilala ko kay Piolo.

Cry Piolo, cry
I've seen him cry a lot of times. Alam mo 'yung ipit na pakiramdam. 'Yung, you can't explain your side. 'Yung you can't have own free time. 'Yung pagod and everything. You want to sleep but you can't sleep because you still have scenes na isu-shoot. When you want to be quiet, you don't have a choice but to smile, or they will call you suplado. 'Yung hindi ka magkaroon ng sariling opinion. Maybe those times na he cried, he felt then na he doesn't own his life na.

I could sense kung may problema siya, like kung madali siyang umiyak sa taping namin. I know may problema siya. 'Yung madali niyang mailabas 'yung emotions niya. 'Yung nakatago, 'yung depression. Nararamdaman ko rin 'yun kaya I know how it feels. 'Yung gusto mo lang umiyak sa pagod.

Paano magalit?
Tahimik magalit si Piolo. Super quiet. Hindi ko pa naman siya nakitang nag-burst out, as in galit na galit. Huwag muna baka hindi ko pa kayanin. If that happens, hahayaan ko siya. Hahayaan ko siyang magwala and pour out his emotions. Kung gusto niyang mambato ng tao, go ahead. Huwag lang akong matatamaan. Lahat naman ng tao 'pag galit na galit ka 'di ba?

T he Secret Language of Birthdays' March 13, falls under the week of Dancers and Dreamers. And if you are born on March 13, yours is The Day of Fateful Prediction.

It describes there your strengths as accepting, courageous and evolving. And your weaknesses would be overreaching and self-important. Your Personology Profile would be under Pisces iii where the general strengths are philosophical, helpful, miracle, working and the corresponding weaknesses would be ineffectual, impermanent, and dependency-fostering.

We asked BOJO MOLINA whose birthday falls on March 13 which trait best describes him sa mga sinabi sa birthday book na 'yon.

'Siguro, 'yung strongly philosophical. Dahil kung mag-isip ako, hanggang sa mag-plano na sabay-sabay. Ang I make it a point na before the year ends, meron na akong mga gagawin na pagpasok pa lang ng susunod na taon. 'Yung hindi na ako naghihintay na iba pa ang magprepare nu'n for me. Pero kung may mga tao namang kailangang makaalam ng mga plano ko, sinasabi ko rin naman agad.

"Kung pilosopiya sa buhay din ang pag-uusapan, masasabi ko na there's one particular thing na naituro sa aking ang tatay ko who was in politics then. 'Yung hindi magpapasulsol o magpapagamit sa iba kapalit ng pabor."

Was there an instance that you were tested for that matter?

"Recently lang. When an indecent proposal was offered to me. Masaya na sana ako na ini-invite ako to have a show in Hong Kong. Ang laki nga ng offer eh. 'Yun pala, may hitch sa dulo. Gusto raw akong mai-date ng isang producer du'n ang alam ko na raw ang kasunod.

"So, right there and then, tinanggihan ko ang offer. Ang sabi ko, siguro meron namang ibang magiging interesado sa bagay na 'yon. Sa akin lang, hindi ko sa ganoong bagay lang sisirain ang prinsipyong ipinamulat sa amin ng tatay ko."

and finally, no. 7

appy si Vilma Santos na finally, she was able to resume shooting for "Dekada 70". Almost a year ding natigil ang filming ng pelikulang ito. At aminado naman ang Star For All Seasons na she's partly to be blamed.

Unang nakasagabal ay ang muling pagtakbo niya bilang Mayor ng Lipa City last year. Pagkatapos ma-reelect, okey na sana. Pero ang sunod naming naging dahilan ay ang death threat sa kanya. Kaya bumilang pa ng ilang buwan bago nakabuwelo si Ate Vi na na makapag-shoot ulit.

This time, talagang nag-adjust ang aktres sa kanyang busy schedule pa rin bilang isang public servant. Ipinagpaalam niya 'yon sa kanyang mga constituents. Ipinaliwanag sa mga taga-Lipa na kailangan niyang tapusin talaga ang matagal nang nabinbing commitment niyang 'yon.

"Nahihiya na rin ako sa Star Cinema," pahayag ng ani Ate Vi last time ay pumasyal kami sa set ng "Dekada…" na pinamamahalaan ni Direk Chito Roño. Kung tutuusin, puwede na nila akong idemanda ng breach of contract pero hindi nila ginagawa. Kasi naiintindihan din nila ang sitwasyon ko.

"Nagpasabi na nga ako dati na okey lang sa akin kung ma-shelved nang tuluyan ang project na ito. Pero sabi nila, tuloy pa rin daw. At hinintay nila ang availability ng shredule ko nga.

Originally, pang-Mother's Days presentation ito. Pero Malabo nang maihabol. Kaya September na lang ang target playdate nito, hopefully ay maitapat sa anibersaryo ng Martial Law.

In order for me not to fall into the trap of making stupid msitake again here are two more quote from celebs in filipine


Nagtataka naman kami sa ibang mga tao r'yan at panay ang bira nila kay Judy Ann Santos!

Karamihan pa sa mga bumibira kay Juday ay parang hindi matanggap na talagang sikat na siya, huh!

'Yung hindi, pati bansag na young superstar kay Juday ay kinukuwestiyon pa eh, sa talaga naming 'yon na ang level ng alagang ito ni Alfie Lorenzo, 'no!

Tanggapin man o hindi ng iba r'yan, eh, hindi na mababago pa ng tadhana. Talagang sikat si Juday and among our young stars, siya ang pinakasikat, 'no!

Aba, aminin man o hindi ng iba r'yan, pero sa totoo lang, wala silang binatbat kay Juday.

Wala sila sa kalingkingan man ng young superstar!

Tungkol nga pala sa hindi pagkakapili ng GMMSF kay Juday bilang box-office queen, maluwag na tinanggap 'yon ng dalaga sa kanyang kalooban. Ni hindi siya nagrireklamo tungkol doon. At ano naman ang masasabi ng kampo ng dalaga?

"Bakit, prestigious ba ang title na 'yan? Sino ba ang nagbibigay ng award na 'yan?" sey ng kampo niya.


Siyanga pala, speaking of Juday, gusto naming i-inform ang milyun-milyon niyang mga tagahanga ng regular na siya ngayon sa "S.O.P" ng GMA-7. 'Yun lang!

Internet chatreels count too right?

Dorothy Delasin is the 2000 LPGA Rookie of the Year and was the 1999 U.S. Women's Amateur champion. This season she won the Giant Eagle LPGA Classic, held the last weekend in July in Ohio. That win made her the LPGA's youngest champion in 25 years. She chatted with CNNSI.com users on Tues., Oct. 17. A transcript of her chat follows:

CNNSI Host: Welcome to today's LPGA chat with Dorothy Delasin. Thanks for joining us Dorothy!
Dorothy Delasin: Thank you having me.

From Jojo Montinola in Bacolod City, Philippines: Keep up the good work. Congratulations on being the Rookie of the Year. We're all proud of you here in the Philippines.
Dorothy Delasin: Thank you so much and I will continue to try to do my best.

From Vincent Tan in Makati, Philippines: Congratulations on being the first person of Filipino descent to win in the LPGA. Not many people outside the Philippines know that your parents are of Filipino origin. I think more people know about Tiger being half-Thai. Is your parents' national origin something you don't particularly care to talk about? Or is it simply not of interest to the press that covers you?
Dorothy Delasin: It's just not an interest of the press. But if they ask me I will tell them. But they usually don't.

From Dr. T in the Philippines: Are you already the rookie of the year, and is Grace Park still in contention? Do you plan to visit the Philippines in 2001 and conduct golf clinics?
Dorothy Delasin: They chose me for rookie of the year already. I'm going to the Philippines in January. I last visited the Philippines in September of last year.

From John Tomas in Manila, Philippines: We know that you are an American Citizen but have Filipinos for parents, so we just want to know if you have introduced yourselves as American, Asian or A Filipino? We are proud of you here although much of the news always says "American Rookie Dorothy Delasin" and so forth and so on... Please keep up the good work, enjoy the game by beating everyone else now and then, CHEERS!!!
Dorothy Delasin: Filipino-American, it only comes up when I'm in the Philippines. No one it the U.S. really asks me that question.

From Garvey boys -- Garrett, Gavin and Gage: We are your biggest fans. Good luck in the tournament of champions this week! We are all rooting for you!!
Dorothy Delasin: Thank you very much and thanks for rooting for me.

From I4golf: Which golfer do you admire the most -- male or female?
Dorothy Delasin: Let's see -- Fred Couples, because of his attitude on the course. And Nancy Lopez, because she was like Tiger Woods back in the day. And I thought that was pretty cool.

From Does: Is there a Tiger Woods on the LPGA?
Dorothy Delasin: I would say Karrie Webb. She is young and she continues to win. She has three Majors under her belt. And her scoring average is comparable to his.

From I4golf: What are your goals for your second season on the tour?
Dorothy Delasin: I will try to earn points for the Solheim Cup. And I will try to get Player of the Year, which is really hard to do.

From Chantilly in San Francisco: Congratulations Dorothy! You make the Bay Area proud! Just wondering what you like to do when you are not playing golf?
Dorothy Delasin: I like to dance and hang out with my friends.

From Guest: Where do you spend your time when you're not touring?
Dorothy Delasin: At home in south San Francisco.

From Scott: I couldn't tell from the tout that was posted, but did you play golf in college?
Dorothy Delasin: No, I didn't. I was debating over going to college or not. So I took a semester off. I was working on my game and then decided to turn pro.

From CSU Stanislaus in Turlock: Congratulations on Rookie of the Year! How has this celebrity status effected you?
Dorothy Delasin: Not much, I'm still the same ole Dorothy. More people recognize me, but it hasn't changed me. I do enjoy the recognition.

From Mike G: What do you think your think your strategy will be on the 2001 LPGA tour?
Dorothy Delasin: To hit more greens, hit more fairways and make a lot of one-putts. And to play my game. I'm going to work extra hard during the offseason.

From William in Santa Clara: What has life been like for you since winning the Giant Eagle at the end of July?
Dorothy Delasin: It's been awesome. I can't explain the feeling. You will just have to trust me on that.

CNNSI Host: That's all the time we have today with Dorothy. Thank you for joining us and good luck with the rest of the season.
Dorothy Delasin: Thank you to everyone on the net.
