Hanggang sa manaka-nakang pagtutok lang namin sa kanya in her roles on TV namin napapanood si Angeline, until we chanced upon her recent guesting.
In the beginning, Angeline struck us as just a talented singer, walang nakapagitan sa kanyang magkabilang tenga just like Rufa Mae who’s all inflated boobs with deflated brains.
Pero habang tumatagal, we found Angeline to be such a cute, naturally funny girl honestly aware of her inadequacies. Halimbawa, nang tanungin siya that if she was a beauty queen material, would she join beauty pageants? Oo raw.
Asked if she believed she’d win? Ang sagot ng hitad, oo pa rin. Pero paano na raw pagdating sa question and answer portion?
Without dead air, sagot niya, “May singing contest naman sa kabilang kalye, eh!”
Angeline may not be like fellow singers pa-twangy Regine Velasquez, or the articulate Lea Salonga, but she’s just as gifted in extemporaneous interviews.
