GMA 7’s Kalingawan sa Kagay-An was sweet but never sappy as love teammates Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal along with Dennis Trillo and Jennica Garcia graced the event. Kagay-anons were treated to an early Valentine’s Day. Without Cupid’s proverbial bow and arrow, Aljur, Kris, Dennis and Jennica hit the bulls-eye and won the Kagay-anons’ hearts.
An estimated 10,000 people flocked to the Limketkai Centre’s The Atrium from 1 to 7 p.m. to get a glimpse of their favorite Kapuso stars. According to the event organizers, Kalingawan sa Kagay-An drew one of the biggest crowds Limketkai had in recent years.
John “Sweet” Lapuz with regional Kapuso stars Anna Maris Igpit of Cebu and Chuck Allie of Davao hosted the event. Sweet exchanged funny repartee with Anna Maris and Chuck.
StarStruck Avenger Chuck is busy hosting a lifestyle show and pursuing a business management course in Ateneo de Davao University. Next year, he hopes to have his diploma and perhaps resume his rudely-interrupted showbiz career. Given another crack at the local tinseltown, Chuck would like to concentrate on hosting talk or lifestyle programs.
Aljur and Kris kept in touch with the Kagay-anons by singing Bitiw and Please Don’t Stop, respectively. The onscreen sweethearts sealed their segments with a kiss after performing Friend of Mine. Jennica and Dennis also entertained them through songs performing Crazy For You, Especially For You and Hinahanap-hanap Kita.
The night before the event, Alfred Vargas serenaded the candidates of Miss Kagay-An.
