Bistek courting Kris again?

FUNFARE - Ricky Lo - The Philippine Star

They haven’t had an honest-to-goodness “closure,” have they? Their so-called “work in progress” must have been just put on-hold, wasn’t it? And they have been swapping titillating text messages, haven’t they?

Kris Aquino is fancy-free (as the song goes,…come wander through the world with me, and any place we chance to be will be our rendezvous…) and so, as he claimed, is Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista (even if he continues to be a dutiful father to his children with two women, neither of whom he married, and from whom he has long been separated).

Is the rudely-interrupted real-life Kristek romcom resuming?

A Funfare VDPA (Very Deep Penetration Agent) swore that it is (“Cross my heart,” she said, “and hope to die!”). The VDPA recalled an incident last Thursday when Bistek paid Kris a surprise (or was it actually agreed upon?) visit on the set of Kris’ movie Etiquette For Mistresses in Antipolo.

“Bistek came with a catering con todo alalay (factotum),” recalled the VDPA. “He stood by Kris like an eagle-eyed bodyguard, as in parang guardia sibil na nakabantay kay Kris. Sweet na sweet sila. Bistek deliberately missed a flight to Iloilo for the League of Cities for Mar Roxas just to be with Kris.”

An entry in Kris’ Instagram (showing a cute couple captioned “Love is…Patching things up”) seems to say it all:…the past couple of months taught me a lot about compromise and about being less selfish. I know we still have a long way to go, but what has been working for me has been to reach for my Rosary and just pray…Another entry:…Learning to see life through his eyes…

Dear Kris has been so stressed these past few weeks and badly needs somebody special to help her unwind.

This time, will their “joint work” progress?

Here’s hoping…and praying!





KC among Outstanding Pinoys in NY awardees

As national ambassador against hunger of the United Nations’ World Food Programme in the Philippines, KC Concepcion will be given a Special Humanitarian Award by TOFA-NY (The Outstanding Filipino Americans in New York) at the awards’ fifth edition set for Oct. 31 at the Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. The same honor will be bestowed on Makilala TV and PAG-ASA Social Foundation.

This was announced by Funfare contributor Oliver Oliveros in his latest report. TOFA-NY is honoring 15 organizations and individuals who have inspired the community with their passion, conviction and achievements, according to Oliver.

The honorees:

* Mark Bustos, a professional hair stylist who gives free services to the homeless during his day-off;

* Maharlika and Jeepney’s Nicole Ponseca, an award-winning restaurateur who propels modern Filipino cuisine into the mainstream; and

* Council member Jonathan Wong, who at 23 became the youngest Filipino American elected to office in Mahwah, New Jersey.

They are honored alongside Commissioner Carmelyn Malalis, New York City Commission on Human Rights chair; Steven Raga, New York State chairperson for the National Federation of Filipino American Associations; Dr. Richard Holsman, founder of Holsman Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center; Dr. Kevin Nadal, executive director of The Center for LGBTQ Studies; and Chelle Lhuillier, a member of the transgender engagement team of the Human Rights Campaign’s Greater New York Steering Committee.

Award-winning soprano Katrina Saporsantos, fashion designer Betina Ocampo, model and singer Gail Banawis, and entrepreneur John Gadia will also receive TOFA-NY trophies for excellence in their respective professions.

“The awardees are a testament to the excellence of Filipinos in every field imaginable, and their significant contribution to the progress of both the United States and the Philippines,” says Philippine Consul General to New York Mario de Leon Jr., who will once again grace the awards night.

The event’s keynote speakers are Loida Nicolas Lewis, co-founder of U.S. Pinoys for Good Governance; Janet Nepales, member of the Hollywood Foreign Press; Gil Quiniones, president and CEO of New York Power Authority; and Ken Natori, vice president of the Natori Company. Cristeta Comerford, the first woman and Asian American to hold the post of White House executive chef, is this year’s special guest.
