Best of Luck and Happy Birthday to Jarel Korber—a talented Filipino German friend whom I’ve never seen in a long time—who’s competing right now at the grand finals of Pinoy Halo-Halo on Abs-Cbn’s “It’s Showtime”! I’m not a follower of this show, although it’s an open book that there’s such a contest for talented Filipinos with mixed blood. I met Jarel a long time ago, when he was active in Cebu’s modeling industry and entertainment world; we lost touch only when he tried to follow his other dreams. It was only through a mutual friend that I learned he already made it to today’s grand finals of such. I am so happy that he’s back to performing onstage—and it’s not just on any ordinary stage out there: “It’s Showtime”! My wish for Jarel Korber is that he may be given a break in the mainstream entertainment industry, because he’s not only a good singer, but he’s also a fabulous performer with both the looks and the passion.
