WHAT I DID DURING LOCKDOWN #throwback

While archiving my computer files, I just found this clip that I submitted for a video collab of @Sharifa and Derby back in April on what quarantine/lockdown has done to me and my family. Just thought I'd share it here, too!

IKAW AT AKO - A Beautiful Father and Daughter Duet

I'm so proud for both of them. They were able to cover this beautiful Filipino lovesong which was the wedding song of the composers, Moira De Torre and Jason Marvin. But my husband and daughter gave a different meaning to it: a daughter wishing to be with her OFW father who's always been working overseas.

Just watching them makes my heart flutter and melt. You can't deny the undeniable bond that they have between them. It's what every father and daughter should have. I love them both.

Their cover has become viral on Facebook and has reached almost 1 million views. Check it out on Selena Marie - Ukulele Girl on Facebook: Ikaw at Ako (Father & Daughter Duet)

TERRY TEO'S BIRTHDAY 2020 - Distance Celebration LOL

Crazy Fambam with the Teo Family

Kuya Terry has always been our big brother since the time we started performing at Shangri-La Hote KL. And that's about 18 years ago. His wife Imelda has always been more than a sister to us and our kids grew up together and apart.

We were always part of every milestone in their family. Every celebration that they have, be it big or small, they would always want us to be a part of it. That's how close our family ties are.

Now that we are back in Manila on Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and they are on Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia, there's no way that we could celebrate Kuya Terry's birthday. Luckily for them, they celebrated his birthday way before the MCO happened. So I told Imelda to send me the videos of the celebration so I could edit it for them. And also did my personal touch so that the #crazyfambam can celebrate with them!


TALA + WAKA WAKA | Jamming at Steak Street's 8th Anniversary

Mar, Chona, Eddie, Chey, and Me

Just sharing with you our fun jamming at Steak Street and Fusion Sushi Restaurant's 8th Anniversary -- the last fun thing that Power Couple Travels did before the lockdown began.

Donned in our face masks, we traveled by bus going to Angeles City in Pampanga for a day trip... errr, night trip rather. We left Manila at 6PM and arrived at Dau Bus Terminal at around 7PM, bought some goodies at Susie's, then headed to the restaurant on a trike. Since it was a Sunday, the restaurant was filled with regular customers and supporters to celebrate the restaurant's anniversary. Our 
friends MariaChona Delosreyes and Eddie Mistiko Romantiko of Sonata Duo provided entertainment and made it a fun jamming evening until 12 midnight. 

Thank you Chey Eve for inviting us and for the yummy food and for the fun evening!

Guys, when you're in Angeles City, do drop by there for a great gastronomic experience! 

CHILLIN' WITH THE CRAZY FAMBAM (Day 9 of Quarantine)

The Crazy Fambam

As the whole Philippines goes to a halt just like the rest of the world, we are all stuck at home. While some do some WFH (Work From Home), people like us find ways to get on with life day by day. So last night, we all got bored and decided to do live streaming on hubby Marl's Youtube channel. It turned out so much fun! Watch and make sure to subscribe and hit the bell button - for notification when we go live next time!

ATMOSPHERE 360 RESTAURANT AT KL TOWER MALAYSIA

Atmosphere 360 Restaurant at KL Tower is a must to visit when you're in Malaysia. Had the privilege to have a lovely afternoon hi-tea buffet with hubby Marl while enjoying a 360-degree city view of Kuala Lumpur at the revolving restaurant on top of the KL Tower. Shoutout to Mr. Kabir Khan, Tourism Ambassador for Malaysia, for this wonderful experience! SIMPLY AMAZING!

New Year's Eve Countdown Party 2020 with the URB Band at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! 🎉

Since we've been doing New Year's Eve Countdown Parties for Shangri-La KL since 2002, I've actually lost count how many times already. But since we came back on the road in 2015, we have done the New Year's Eve Shows for the past 4 consecutive years. It's that one day in a year that I've always been looking forward to where they let me conceptualize the show to unleash our best onstage. It's that one day that often takes weeks of preparation, sometimes even months.

This year, we did it again at the posh Lobby Lounge of the Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur. The way they turned the whole lobby into a mini-concert hall is really amazing. This year was slightly different from the past years because they have set up an LED wall as our backdrop onstage. My 8 backup dancers are from 2Twenty2 Studios this year headed by the choreographer Zaidy and it was a breeze working with them. I had 2 outfit changes and I managed to sing one of the songs I've been wanting to do for the longest time - the Queen Of The Night / Fifth Element Aria Mashup. Everyone had a good time and that's what's important for performers like us.

Anyway, this year, since Marlou has been doing vlogs and was so eager to vlog about the evening, I let him edit the video. Check out his New Year's Eve vlog below and please subscribe to his Youtube channel - The Singing Wanderer!
