I’ve seen a lot of local celebrities already however, I never really felt star struck by their presence. I don’t know how I will react, though, if I ever get so lucky as to see some of my most favorite international stars. I don’t think I’d be the type who will jump around, scream and act crazy. But anyway, let me tell you about getting to meet one of the Philippines brightest stars ever, Lea Salonga.

Back in 2007, I visited my sister in New York, where she lives and works. The visit was really super short but we wanted to make the most out of it since it was my first time in New York. One of the things we really planned to do was watch a Broadway play. Luckily, Les Miserables was on at that time and Lea Salonga played Fantine. It was the greatest plays I’ve ever seen in my entire life and I really felt so proud that I saw Lea in it. In a group of actors of various races, she was clearly the best on that stage. Her voice was just amazingly perfect! I’ve never been more proud to be Filipino.
The best thing though was waiting at the door after the play to get a chance to see her up close and get her autograph. To our surprise, lots of people in the audience also did the same thing. The audience clamored to get autographs and photos of the cast but guess who was the most in demand of them all…. Lea, of course! There were just so many people clamoring to get her autograph and photo that by the time she finished with all of them the other cast members were already gone. She was the last of them to leave! That was the first time ever that I actually felt star struck.
It was one of my most unforgettable moments. Luckily, I was able to capture the moment. Here’s a photo of me, my sister, Joan, and Lea.Β
