I love Ate Glow...

I was reading the Inquirer broadsheets dated Dec27 when I came across this article.

In all honesty, I really love to hear the spoofs of this adorable tv impersonator. Actually, I really want to watch a local "baduy" movie just to see him (?) deliver his (?) punches. Hehehe!
Ate Glow, ang cute-cute mo!!! *grins*

Macapagal look-alike wins Valenzuela crowd

"THE PRESIDENT has arrived," said a voice on the radio. But the policemen outside the Valenzuela City Astrodome on Thursday night were wondering why no presidential security group nor a long convoy of luxury cars had entered the gate.

Inside the astrodome, Valenzuela Mayor Bobbit Carlos went up the stage and, with a smile, said: "It is my honor to introduce to you the President of the Republic of the Philippines."

The people inside the astrodome stood up and clapped their hands. A few seconds later, they started laughing.

President Macapagal-Arroyo was nowhere. But Ate Glow was there.

Ate Glow, a TV impersonator made up to look like the president, walked through the crowd, shook hands with some of the audience, went up the stage and blurted out his signature line: "Ang saya-saya, no (Isn't this fun)?"

While Ms Macapagal was absent during the celebration Thursday night, another 2004 aspirant was there-Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chair Bayani Fernando.

He was also welcomed with claps and cheers, though not as loud as those given to Ate Glow. One cheered "senador, senador," to which Fernando replied: "Vice president po, baka magkamali kayo ha (it is vice president, sir, hope you don't make a mistake)."

During Carlos' party held at the still unfinished Valenzuela City Astrodome in Barangay Dalandanan, Fernando tried to win the crowd's hearts by singing two songs a capella. He first sang "Sa Lilim ng Punong Mangga," unknown to most of the 2000 people inside the astrodome.

Despite the party's political flavor, Erlinda, 53, told the Inquirer she remained undecided on who to vote for in 2004.

"Si Ate Glow na lang ang iboboto ko (I'll just vote for Ate Glow)," said Erlinda, who came with her daughter, grandchild and neighbors.
