Karylle stars in Singapore action dramaBy Dolly Anne Carvajal
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Karylle was not disheartened at all when she didn’t land a part in “Miss Saigon.”
“I was happy to do one callback. It was a priceless experience, fun and frightening,” she said. “It’s like the closest I’d get to extreme sports. It was like a rollercoaster ride; I was dizzy for an hour after the audition.”
Even if she missed that opportunity, Karylle still has a lot going for her. “I’m proud to be part of an action-drama series in Singapore, ‘Point of Entry,’ which started airing last November 29 on Ch. 5 in SG,” she beamed. “I play the girlfriend of a criminal, Simon Ibarra. There are stars from Los Angeles, Hong Kong and Singapore in the cast.”
Asked about her experience working with a foreign crew, she said: “I was surprised at how small the crew was. We were just about 10 on the set—and only one camera. They are always punctual and we packed up early.”
Here comes Karylle, Lion City! Hear the Pinay roar!

Dream come true
Chad Borja is in an ecstatic mood after jamming with jazz icons Dave Grusin and Lee Ritenour at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC).
“It was a dream come true for me,” he gushed. “They were happy I sang Lee’s hit, ‘Is It You,’ with them since they didn’t prepare any song with vocals. I wanted to sing ‘Dreamwalkin” and ‘Haunting Me,’ but Dave forgot how to play those classics already. Their dynamics as musicians are different. I could feel their sensitivity in playing their instruments.”
Chad is likewise excited about the release of his new album, which contains all-original Filipino songs. Since his bout with the Big C, the music in Chad has never been more alive.
Bravo to my darling Leo Valdez for his well-deserved win as best actor in a musical production (“The King and I”) at the 25th Aliw Awards.
But for me who’s been blessed to be close to Leo, I’ve always known what a winner he is in every way. With or without awards, I will forever be in awe of him. I’m mighty proud of you,
your Majesty. In my heart, I crown you every day.
I am super-excited to go back to Dubai with Wency Cornejo and my all-time fave band, True Faith.

What better way for our kababayan abroad to beat homesickness this holiday season than by enjoying real good Pinoy music? It would be the next best thing to coming home for Christmas.
