What you won’t see in the ABS-CBN summer station ID


Vandolph reunited with “Home Along Da Riles” costar Mari Barbacui

ABS-CBN’s summer station ID premieres Sunday on the noontime show “ASAP 18.”

It relives the network’s most popular shows in the past 60 years—this will be apparent in the mood and production values. What viewers will not see are interesting tidbits such as:

On location in Balic-Balic, Manila, the SID team ran into Mari Barbacui, one of the taumbayan in “Home Along da Riles,” among the onlookers. Mari, who lives in the area, did not know that former “Home” costar Vandolph was coming. It was a tearful reunion.

Angel Locsin, who channels Pamela Anderson in “Baywatch,” had a lifeguard swimsuit made to order.
