During my Canada Comedy Tour with Rufa Mae Quinto, Pooh, and Allan K, I chanced watching a performance of Lady Gaga in one of the hottest clubs in Winnipeg.
Last year yun kaya nang sabihin ng club manager, “Lady Gaga will perform tonight,” sinabi ko dun sa kaibigan ko, “Sino siya?” Gaga, di ba?
E, kasi naman, di pa kilala si Lady Gaga sa Pilipinas at yung mga kanta niyang “Pokerface” at “Just Dance.” But in Canada, she already had a cult following.
I could have stayed in the dance floor to see her up close but I opted to stay in the V.I.P. area on the second floor since I really didn’t know who she was. Another gaga move.
March 2009, my kid is going gaga over Lady Gaga and her songs. She wanted me to film this dance number we shot during Holy week in the house of my friend in Tagaytay Highlands (beside Willie Revillame’s house).
Siguro kung mapapanood ni Lady Gaga itong video na ito, eto sasabihin niya, “Di ba ikaw yung okray ng okray sa akin sa Canada? ‘Tapos ngayon i-li-lipsynch mo lang pala ang kanta ko, magdadala ka pa ng tatlong back-up dancers! Gaga girl!” Hahahaha!
LIA’S GAGA MOMENTS
Her mild-mannered demeanor and poised, educated moves, she took from her father. Her tactless remarks every now and then, kanino pa magmamana, heleerr…Anak ko ‘yan.
I remember having dinner in New York with Emil’s childhood friend. Lia was with us and Emil’s friend just recently “went out of the closet.” While Emil’s friend was flamboyantly talking, Lia asked me in her loud voice (voice crescendo just like Mama), “Papa, is your friend bading?”
It was a good thing Emil’s friend liked children and courteously answered, “Why yes, darling! But here in New York, they call us gay.” Then he showed Lia pictures of his recent Holloween masquerade party which my daughter loved. Pag-uwi namin, Lia told her Papa, “I like your bading friend na gay.”
A few weeks ago, Emil’s childhood friend came back from New York to hold a piano concerto here in Manila. Their families are very close so my in-laws were with us, together with the other family friends and relatives of Emil.
In short, isang alta sociedad ang affair ito. At kapag alta sociedad na affair, expect it to be boring (siyempre jologs ako!). This was the exact sentiment of my daughter while his Tito-Tita was playing the piano and everyone in their gowns and suits marveled at him/her.
Siguro sobrang bored na yung anak ko, biglang bumulalas ng malakas habang nasa pianissimo-mode and tugtog ni Tito-Tita, “E, bakla naman ‘yan, e.” Haaay!
Kinuha ko na yung pala. I started digging my grave. I—wanted-to-die Part II.
This time for real! Please bury me six feet under the ground. Tinignan ako ng in-laws ko. Heleerrr! Bakit ako tinitignan niyo? Yung anak ko kaya ang nag-Lady Gaga moment!
Three weeks from now, I’m going to give birth. Please pray that I have a very safe and almost painless delivery. I will still do a Lamaze birthing so please pray that my pain endurance can beat the pain of giving birth. Thank you, PEPsters. Let us all pray that Xavier Zappa will be a healthy bouncing baby boy and less tactless like her sister and mother. Hahahaha!
goodluck ms G…im giving birth next month too…bumili ako ng dvd about lamaze sa awa ng Diyos 2 beses ko lang yata napanood …anyway, Goodluck for the both of us…di ka ba nagpa 4d ultrasound? sana post mo dito…take care!!!

hayup ka sa talaga sa patawa!
tumbling kami lahat dito sa katatawa e..
naku ms. G! i hope isipin mo lahat ng funny experiences mo para habang nanganganak ka ay walang maxadong pain hahahaha!
You are blessed with a loving husband and very beautiful daughter. Pero pag titigan ko ang anak mo parang kamukha mo na kamukha din ng father niya, parang hindi ko maintindihan, but she is really look like both of you with your husband… I hope she will be the next beauty and brain of the Philippines (Miss Philippines).

Hello Ms. G. I will pray for your safe delivery, lamko kaya mo yan. Cute ng daughter mo, like you. Kakatuwa humor nya saka ang mga bata naman very vocal sa mga nakikita nila just like my kids.

ang kulit i Lia..hehe..anyway,God bless on your delivery..we’ll pray for you =)
Hello po Miss Giselle. I won’t wonder why is Lia like that. A child reflects what does his/her parents do or act. Anyway, it just shows how observant Lia is and it’s good that she tells everyone what she feels because if one can’t tell what she/he feels, life would be pointless. Just my thoughts.
I will pray for your safe delivery and for little Zappa to be healthy. Take care and God Bless.
