I particularly remember seeing Nina in Eastwood a couple of years ago. She was doing HHWW (holding hands while walking) with her non-showbiz boyfriend. Behind them was her 'alalay' in white uniform, holding Nina's super liit bag. Maybe it has gold nuggets inside so it's heavy and requires a yaya to carry.
Anyway, on my last trip to Sydney, we heard Mass at St. Mary's Cathedral and as we were heading out we saw celebrities also walking out of the church. Surprise, surprise!
Look at them. The very rich, powerful and popular Cojuangcos. Mikee, her husband Dudut, China, their Dad Peping, another sibling (perhaps) and I suppose a male relative.
I was surprised by their simplicity, considering they were overseas and catching people's attention will be less likely. Mikee and China were not carrying a bag. Yup, no LV or Channel swinging by their arms. No flashy jewelry that would make you wear shades even at nighttime. They didn’t even carry a DSLR. It was actually funny watching them take each other’s photo using their cam phone.
When they see Pinoys looking at them, they smile and continue walking like any regular tourists.
To say that I was impressed was an understatement
