CLASSIC: "PRINCIPE ABANTE"

More than 30 years ago in a normal traditional Filipino family room sat a little girl wne someone so big and wide starts to occupy the couch where she's in the middle of. A loud wail of "apante! apante!" stopped the man mid-way to sitting down, turned and saw the girl pointing at him. He turned with a disbelief in in his face saying "sino nagtuturo sa batang ito?!" ("whose teaching this child?!"). He obviously was so surprised upon hearing the"apante" believing it to be "elepante" ("elephant"), thus my dad amended explaining that it is "Prinsipe Abante", the man's known TV series, that I was pertaining to. He added that I love watching that Tagalog fantasy series therefore have recognized him upon me seeing him.

My grandpop Prospero Luna, cousin to my maternal granddad, known to me more as Kuya Porping laughed and made a joke of himself about the incident.

Last I've seen Kuya Porping was 2 years ago when he visited from the US. He had migrated there years prior to be closer to his family and kids...but we never stopped remembering him and his movies that have started since the early 1960's.
