Another form of child abuse
Posted on

I was telling Jeroen how we grew up watching Kuya Germs give away Birts Tree milk products, Seiko wallets, Hickock belts and more to his foreign guests like The Lettermen and Gina Lollobrigida on live TV.
And the sight of it would make me cringe, I can’t even tell you.
Even at a very young age I knew something was wrong.
So Jeroen, here’s a video of Kuya Germs giving gifts to Menudo—watch out for a young Ricky Martin—such as jackets from Fairmart, Timex watches, souvenirs from Nayong Pilipino, Goya chocolate, and freaking Nissin biscuits. (No offence to Nissin biscuits.)
But my God, what is Lani Mercado’s outfit? It looks so chica!
And Robby Rosa looks like Michael Jackson.

MENUDO!

Just have to share another form of child abuse (jejeje). Here’s Menudo with me (I look scared but I had a huge crush on Ricky Martin). :)) This was during their visit to Manila in the 80s.

Yes, this is GMA Supershow and the host in the middle is Zsa Zsa Padilla, plus do y’all recognize a very young Sheryl Cruz in pink, beside Ricky Martin?
Never mind the giveaways, what bothered/bothers me is the waste of airtime giving them out one-by-one! Seriously! haha

Nakakadepress naman! On one hand, ang sarap tumawa at mag reminisce. On the other hand, di ko alam kung maiiyak ako or maiinis dahil ang tanda na natin. hahaha 😀
