Piolo, Inigo send fans to dreamland

Piolo, Inigo send fans to dreamland

The Filipino community have several concert organizers but when Palabok House Promotions of Lydia Jimenez brought Piolo Pascual and son Inigo last October 27 in Edmonton, it was a night to remember for a long, long time.
Even right after the concert, the Facebook accounts of Piolo fans are still posting “late uploads” of the Father and Son concert. Thanks to Lydia for flying in, through Fly Friendly Travel and Tours, arguably the most handsome actor from the Philippines.

Ladies screamed Piolo’s name out loud at the jampacked South Pointe Community Center and some bravely eluded concert security staff to plant a kiss on the actor’s cheek as if she just kissed a god. After that in Edmonton, it was a sleepless night for most of the fans that even Quality Sleep Care, a Filipino co-owned sleep medicine company, probably could not find a cure.

“Masaya lahat ang mga ladies,” said Resty Reyes, president of Fly Friendly Travel and Tours, whose office staff, five of them ladies, made sure they did not miss the concert.

When Piolo started singing “The Gift”, this was the part of the concert that all women wished they had one moment with him.

But the entire three minutes and 47 seconds of that song was entirely dedicated to Lydia, who years ago in the Philippines have dreamed of watching famous actors someday only to make it a reality in Canada after years of hard work of running the successful Palabok House restaurant have afforded her to bring famous Filipino singers and actors to entertain the Filipino community.

It was Piolo’s way of saying many thanks to Lydia and her sponsor friends for bringing him and his crew again to Edmonton. Piolo’s son Inigo, Maris Rasal and Wacky Kiray also performed for the fans of the most successful concert, so far, that was co-presented by Skin Lueur, Fly Friendly Travel and Tours, Palabok House Filipino & Chinese Cuisine and Sun Life Financial-EVT Insurance Services Inc.

A group of Team Marnigo (Maris and Inigo) fans also attended the concert, carrying banners and specially-made shirts to show to their idols. “Masaya kami talaga,” said MJ Matandac, president of the fans club.

The Alberta Filipino Journal was also one of the backers along with E&W Production, RED Production, Arbonne’s Joan Aguilar, Great Smile Family Dental, Panciteria de Manila, Golden Bucks Bakery, UMAC Express Cargo, Rolymie Restaurant, 3J Variety Store, Fat Jakks, World FM 101.7 Himig Pinoy, Tala Luv’z Radio 94.7, Dreamscape Travel, Pinoy Times on Air, Zion Spa, Quality Sleep Care, Alma Armada Immigration and Wefix Auto.
