Scorching hot: PDI turns 27


CALLALILY frontman Kean Cipriano joins the revelry; at right, Wally and Jose engage in rib-tickling antics.

The weather has been hot and humid these past few months—quite a bewildering phenomenon with Christmas fast approaching. Climate change notwithstanding, the Inquirer celebrated its 27th anniversary on Friday at its Makati office with scorching performances from over a dozen musical artists.

A combined lineup of new and established acts kept the paper’s employees glued to their seats—with the more uninhibited bunch dancing till the wee hours of the morning.

The Inquirer’s own singing talent, reporter Tarra Quismundo, opened the musical part of the program with an inspirational tune.

In between the raffling off of door prizes came a succession of sizzling numbers by Ney, Gracenote, Moonstar88, Kitchie Nadal, Never the Strangers, Absolute Play, Save Me Hollywood, Cathy Go, Zendee Rose Tenerefe, She’s Only Sixteen, RunManila, Suy Galvez, Callalily and Third Nature.

Mr. World first runner-up Andrew Wolff also graced the event.

Highlight of the night was the rib-tickling act of comedy duo Jose and Wally.

After Third Nature played its last song at around 3 a.m., the party people walked away dripping with sweat and smiling with glee. Pocholo Concepcion
