I just arrived tonight from Davao City (which is celebrating its Kadayawan Festival) where I met up with my balikbayan friend Rey whom I have not seen since 1991. We had a few hours to catch up on the times gone by and suffice to say, we both had fun updating each other on how we’ve been.
Since I only hitched a ride with my best friend Francis, I had to leave before 5 in the afternoon and after buying a few things at SM Davao which was so packed with festival shoppers, we started our way home.
Earlier, I noticed a poster inside the mall announcing the appearance of the two lead starts of ABS-CBN‘s teleserye, “MY GIRL“, Gensan’s very own Gerald Anderson and Kim Chiu at their upper floor that very same time.
That got me into thinking how unfair ABS-CBN really is.
Yesterday, Friday, when I was preparing to blog about the upcoming shows of the artists of competing television stations ABS-CBN and GMA for the Tuna Festival, I received some discouraging news.
According to an ABS-CBN Gensan Marketing executive, the August 30 KCC Mall of GenSan show of Gerald and Kim together with John Lloyd Cruz which they have been announcing on their local TV programs, Magandang Umaga Socsargen and TV Patrol Socsargen and FM radio programs for the past two weeks has been cancelled!
The fear of the ABS-CBN Talent Center that Gen. Santos City may not be a safe place to bring their priced stars due to the recent events in Lanao del Norte and North Cotabato.
Whaaat the f….ck!!!!!?????
I was so furious when I heard this flimsy and stupid excuse not wanting to believe that they did it again! During the last Kalilangan Festival in February, they also cancelled the supposedly appearance of the band CUESHE!
Granting that their Talent Center (headed by Mr. Johnny Manahan) has all the right to ensure the safety of their wards, why single out GenSan only?
This is an insult to the capabilities of the local security and peace-keeping forces and a mindless and insensitive message to the local government of GenSan which has been ABS-CBN’s biggest advertiser for the past five years in Region XII.
And what about GMA, the Kapuso Network?
Thank God, they’re not leaving us out in the cold and are in fact, pushing through with their Tuna Fest Kapuso Day with Regine Velasquez, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Dennis Trillo and many more. Same thing with SMART, Coca Cola, San Miguel, K101 and RMN who have also booked Manila-based artists for the Tuna Festival, including Kamikazee, among others.
That leaves ABS-CBN alone in their decision to forbid their artists to perform here, including Gerald Anderson who hails from this place and whose mother still LIVES HERE in their old house at Doña Soledad Subdivision!
Surely, something must be done about this affront not only on the local authorities but to all of us!
The comments and response section is all yours, my dear readers.
I have said my piece.
Good news! ABS-CBN Talent Center must have finally heard all our collective voices and agreed that in place of John Lloyd Cruz, Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson, they will be bringing in at the KCC Mall of GenSan on September 6, 2007 the latest Grand Prize Winner of the Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition Season II – DYAAARAAAAANNNN – Davao City’s very own comic artist, MR. RUBEN GONZAGA!!!!
So, what do you have to say now, people of the Philippines????
[…] received a lot of flak from the generals when they cancelled a show in 2008 here (read account by clicking here ) must have realized that they could not forever keep out their artists from GenSan or Soccksargen […]
[…] all these support for their top-rated programs from the city government will make the notorious ABS-CBN’s Talent Center think twice before always singling out GenSan as a “MUST-AVOID” place for its stars, […]
all i can say is, napakaunprofessional!!!!
tanchis last blog post..The Good Thing About Having a Family

@anonymouse 🙂 – Ahahahahaah!! LOL Hi Joey C.!! be natural fles. 🙂
@Manong Orman, braces? bakit, may pilay ba mga ngipin nya? ajejeje
Pakisabi rin sa kanya, he sounds constipated dun sa voice over nya na: TV Patrol Socksargen. Ajejeje uli.
@anonymouse 🙂 – hahahaha FRIDA KAHLO dyud?? patay ka ke joey c! pero kung ako tatanungin k na ang kilay… yoko lang ng braces nya… he looked better without the braces…
Team Kapamilya daw, may ka-team ba na nang-iiwan? Ano ba ang abs-cbn – fair-weather kapamilya lang? Dapat hindi i-renew ang license ng abs-cbn to operate dito sa gensan. Manong Orman, paki-advise si Joey C na ipa-ahit ang gitna ng mga kilay nya, kamukha na nya si Frida Kahlo! Ajejeje
well i think it all boils down to MONEY parin. If only the Mall and other Sponsor gave enough money, edi matutuloy ito.
ngulat ako nung lumabas si Ruben akala ko ung dancer pa ng gensan..nagulat ako si ruben na pala..huhuhu..parang hindi ko talaga akalain na isang milyonaryo ung napapanuod ko sa KCC..heheheheh mura syag chihuahua..joke..hehehhe
kataw anan kaayo ka RUBEN Gonzaga, nikanta ka niuli mga fans nimo..tas ingon pa niya…hoy hoy hoy dili n lang ko mukanta , musayaw na lang ko…hoy pamalik mo..waaaaaaaaaaahahahhaha..kalingaw.
Ormz, sabi ni German, di ka raw papansinin ni Manolo Lopez dahil taga-MERALCO yun. Dapat daw si Gabby Lopez.
You are so kaka…. 🙂
Tama na ang sisihan & comments…Nothing to compare Gensan into anywhere in the Philippines…Naga City is what a Ghost City to host…May mga NPA din doon & that place is totally nothing…Unlike in Gensan they will see a lot of place to invest because we are going fast dicreetly although there is a conflict but still we are growing progressively…Kahit wala pa yang mga media station na yan…someday sila naman ang pupunta sa atin…Hello …
i watched the kapamilya show last saturday. hindi napuno ang convention center ng kcc. kakalog-kalog talaga. mabuti na lang magagaling ang tatlong hosts (joey c., hannibal and cheenee) – they were able to enliven the first part lalo na nang nagrampahan ang anim na bading. hagalpakan kami talaga. but when they called ruben (ruben who?) and he started singing, umuwi na ako. i mean “hello” di nya talent ang pagkanta.
sa ganang akin, mas mabuting di na lang nagpadala ng kapalit ang abs cbn. pinanindigan na lang sana nila ang desisyon nila na wag nang ituloy kapamilya dahil sa kaguluhan sa mindanao. MALAKING INSULTO kay RUBEN ang ginawa nila — parang sinabi na “HOY RUBEN DI KA NAMAN SIKAT SO OKAY LANG KUNG MAY MANGYARI SAYO — WAG LANG KINA GERALD AT KIM!”
excuse me lang pero nainsulto ako sa pagpapadala nila kay ruben. i have nothing against ruben — pero naman… di naman tayo ganun kabobo para di natin maintindihan na ABS CBN considers GENSAN as LAST PRIORITY. eh bakit natuloy sina gerald and kim sa davao? asan ba ang davao? nasa luzon? ano si RUBEN? PAMPALUGAG-LOOB?
sorry lang but gensan deserves better treatment!
marami akong kaibigan sa local abs cbn. mga matitinong tao. masigasig. tapat. it’s a pity damay tuloy sila sa ngitngit ng taga-gensan.
forward nyo ito ke manolo lopez.
well, anne, yung sinasabi nyong nanduon din kayo despite not being recognize is because your station still needs the news to be updated. kasi kung di nyo i report ang tuna fest di wala kayong news for the entire week. di ba?? so maiwan kayo walang balita ang tv patrol socsksagen. that would be very funny. TV patrol socksargen not having any feature about the tuna festival. so you need to cover the activities para meron pa rin kayong balita. Alam nyo bang kumikita kayo dahil sa NEWS? AND THE TUNA FESTIVAL IS NEWS. so yung ang pang market nyo sa mga nag papa commercisl sa inyo na sobrasobra ang charges nyo. every little line and word is worth thousands para lang maipalabas sa abs. di ba totoo yan? in fact kayo nakinabang sa tuna fest na coverage.
so stop explaining lalo lang kayo nag mumukhang trying hard. I used to be an abs cbn loyal fan pero sorry, lilipat na rin ako
THANK YOU SA COMMENT!

As the unofficial media partner ng tuna festival, we have our limitation.
Pero kita naman diba?! andun kami during the opening of the festival.
Kahit walang recognition from the emcees that we were there. But we covered the whole show. Almost 80 percent of the workforce of ABS-CBN GenSan andoon to promote tuna fest.
Anyone is welcome to watch the full coverage of the opening last friday sa CHANNEL 28.
May news din ginawa on tuna fest sa Bandila,kanina lang.
Sorry for the dissapointments, pero ganun din kami. We were also dissapointed. Excited din kami na makakita ng artista kaya we share the joy and announce before na they were coming. as we thought.
Im here to inform.Pls don’t single us out.
If you will check http://www.bicolmail.com, they reported na the National Cooperative Summit that is originally plan to be held here will be move in Naga City.
May travel advisory din daw sina Regine Velasques and Dennis Trillo.
Sa comment na, insensitive ang delivery ng news. address ba yun sa TV PATROL SOCSARGEN? if anyone watch the local news lately, we have been improving the program. and we will take the comment in a positive note.
@romel – Papano nga ba naman magtatagumpay sa pag establish ng good image e-mismong mga media outfits itong namumuno sa paglalahad ng mga iresponsable, negatibo, kabaliktaran at walang basehang paglalarawan sa aming pinakamamahal na lugnsod. Dapat nga dito sa mga media stations na ito ay hindi tangkilikin!!!…ngayon nga sabihin mo at ipaliwanang mi samin ang slogang “walang iwanan sa bayan ni juan”?
kung media blitz at promotions lang ang hinahanap mo ay puspusan ang ginagawang ito hindi lamang ng mga opisyales ng lungsod kundi pati ng mga tunay na mga mamamayan nito.
your mayor and govt officials should conduct medial blitz and pr jobs to deo\dorize the image of gensan, dahil kami dito sa dumaguete pag sinabing may bombang sumabog sa gensan it will register kaagad na gensan is not a sfe place to live alam nyo na ang tv coverage very subjective kaya trabaho ng opisyales nyo na pabanguhin ang imgae ng gensan, darlene should stop engaging in national politics she should concentrate on deodorizing the image of gensan para di matakot mga visitors from manila or other places and investors also
Well…Well..Well. Sana Totally cancelled na lang kasi sino ba yang impakto ipapadala nila as in yaks ang image ng ABS-CBN nyan…compare to GMA bigatin ang pinadala nila…Haleeeeeee….For me e boycott ko talga ang participation of Kapamilya….As in really discouraging….Anong tingin nila sa taga Gensan walang tastes…yak yak yak….Ang baba ng tingin ko sa Kapamilya station….Bad impression at all….
why fuss about this so called stars? hindi ba magpush through ang tuna festival if they’re not around? who are they? the festival is for us. GENERALS…let us enjoy each others company…wag kayong magtiyagang manood nang mga talents na pilit na pilit…except richard poon, kahit mahal ang ticket..
dalha na lang ninyo si Laarni og Philip malingaw pa mi. By the way, abs-cbn salamat sa inyong kunswelo de bobo ha? ingon ana ra gyud diay tan-aw ninyo sa amoa…sige lang.
at bernie Allen: na sense pud diay nimo? hehehe
Its like teasing you with fondant cake and then feeding you with torta/mamon. Nakakinsulto sa mga Generals!
hindi kaya cancelled ang talents ng abs-cbn kasi GMA ang media partener ng Tuna Festival? What do you think? @_@ possible db?
Well…Enjoy the Tuna Festival as we are only place celebrate the big Fish Fiesta…Babawi din ang Gensan…If you remember Pacquaio Bday….Grabe din mag prepare ang ABS-CBN….Time will come expect a big surprises from them… As of now…They are protecting their people…For GMA Thanks for being with us….GO GO GO Gensan at least whole Manila will see about our city…Malakas daw kc ang GMA sa Manila…its time…..Agree or disagree….
what the hell are you talking about????? we’re talking about the abx cbn stars and gensan issue it’s not DAVAO vs Gensan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!@Toinks –
manonood ako ke Poon but sa miss gensan d ako cgurado but cgro.. ahaha…
san ung Kalilanga???? pagkaaalam ko Kalilangan un eh sa Gen.San…
naku! bad news nga. kahit saan naman delikado eh. that is so unfair to single out gensan. forget them kung ayaw nila. i thought i am kapamilya!
The Richard Poon show will push through. I don’t think that he is an exclusive Talent Center artist. Anyway, his show will start at 9pm (after the dinner) so you can still watch the Finals of Ms. GenSan at Gaisano Atrium which will start at 5:30 exactly. It will be a fast-paced show, according to the director, Dino. See you there jm on both events. 🙂
