Robinson’s Place in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

The movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” will always be memorable for my hubby and me since we watched it in the beautiful island of Palawan.

To the city dwellers who can’t stand staying in a place without a mall, there’s already a Robinson’s Place in Puerto Princesa (along the National Highway Road) and an SM on the works =)

At the Elephant Cave in Puerto Princesa, Palawan

At the Karst Mountain Elephant Cave, one of the sites of Amazing Race Philippines and Ukraine. We were going back to our hotel from the Underground River Tour when thankfully, our tour guide decided we stop over here for some pictorials.

It has excellent limestone formations and is actually one of the exit points of the Underground River.

Elephant Cave got its name because it looks like an elephant lying down… do you see it? Agree? =)

Rating: 3.5/5

“Zsazsa Zaturnnah Ze Muzical” is my favorite show ever (I watched it about 5 times already). Tita Myra, my aunt from New Jersey blurted out after watching Zsazsa, “This is better than Broadway!”… I smiled because I had her same sentiments. Hence, I was ecstatic upon learning that the team that brought about Zsazsa came up with a new play. “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady” is the latest project of the admirable team comprised of writer Carlo Vergara, Director Chris Martinez and Musical Director Vincent de Jesus.

Before the play started, a few words from Producer Perterean Brinas of Dalanghita Productions…

The actors were all superb… in acting, and most especially singing. Filipinos are just so darn talented! Lead role, Bituin Escalante (Mely) sang effortless (geez, I wish I had even a tiny portion of her talent). My fave of the night is Kim Molina (Viva), who portrayed Bituin’s sister… I just sooo love her acting! I adore Gianina Ocampo’s (Nena Babushka) heartfelt singing as well (I can relate… sniff, sniff). Too bad I was unable to watch Menchu Lauchengco’s rendition of Madre de Dios but her alternate Astarte Abraham did a splendid job.

Bituin Escalante, you deserve the applause…
SAM_6382

One thing I didn’t like about the play though is that it was too long. The play started at 8:00 PM and it lasted for more than 3 hours! My friends and I didn’t care to have photo-ops taken with the stars because we were all famished. We already got to have our dinner nearing 12 midnight already. I hope the production would consider trimming down the play, and delete the scenes and songs that aren’t too important or aren’t contributory to the conflict.

Dinner at Jay-J’s after the show…

We were so famished that there were no leftovers, not even a single grain of rice… haha =)

All in all, I still love Zsazsa Zaturnnah more, but still kudos to the team of Vergara, Martinez and de Jesus for coming up with another creative, entertaining and funny superhero musical =)

P.S. You can buy the comic book of “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady” at the theater booth for P175. I bought a copy and I can’t wait to read it. Let’s see how the story and story lines compare to the musical… =)
