Autographed DOLPHY Book!

Possibly the best thing I brought back from my parents' house is this signed biography of legendary Filipino actor/comedian DOLPHY. My parents got a copy when they went back to the Philippines early last year.
My grandfather, Paquito Prinsipe Bautista, and Dolphy are good friends for many years and I was very lucky to meet him back when I was still a kid. I remember I was 10 or 11 when Dolphy (or "Tito Dolphy" as my grandpa told us to call him) came to our house on the night of our "Barangay Fiesta" (a kind of annual street party) to have beer with my grandpa and a few friends. He came around midnight and stayed 'til the wee hours of the morning just having a few beers with my grandpa. You know, just relaxing and having a great time.

My grandfather worked with Dolphy at RVQ Productions (Dolphy's movie studio) as his Executive Assistant for many years. He even played small roles in several of Dolphy's films.
I was actually watching Dolphy's biography DVD this afternoon while writing this blog when I saw this short clip (below). I went "Hey! That's my grandpa! So freakin' cool!".

FUN FACT: My grandpa and Dolphy were such close friends he got my older brother Ian, just a year old at the time, to appear in "Stariray" - one of Dolphy's many films he did in the '80s. My brother played "Baby Dolphy" in the film's first scenes. That lucky bugger.


Here's me and my super-duper-mega-awesome grandpa when I last visited the Philippines back in 2006. A very large part of who I am is because of this man. My personal hero and idol.



He's so cool he even has his very own IMDb link!
(That's it for now. See you on the next blog post. I still have a couple more things I brought back with me that I wanna show you. Although it's gonna be hard to top this one.)

Happy new year! (Oh, can you read Chinese?)


[UPDATE: Apparently, the texts are Chinese characters. Thanks for the heads-up Ernie and Anne.]

Happy new year everyone! So I'm finally back in my Toronto apartment from my Christmas vacation at my parents place and I brought some stuff back with me that I wanna show you.

I also need your help on this particular shirt I'm wearing...

See, I got this shirt from my brother and I'm guessing the text is in Chinese . I never got the chance to ask him what it said (like he would know, anyway) so I'm asking anybody out there who can read Chinese to tell me what it says.

You might wanna zoom in or enlarge the image to read it more clearly.

Oh, check out this neat lion character on the side. Now who doesn't like a smiling lion?



So, anyway, I hope you can help me out. It gonna bother me really bad if I don't find out what the shirt says. Thanks and I'll be posting more stuff I brought back real soon.

RAWR!
