Maine Mendoza starstruck by Regine Velasquez, Mikee Cojuangco, Donna Cruz
Though Maine Mendoza is a rising star, being the other half of the hit love team “AlDub” with Alden Richards, she has always been a fangirl at heart.
Yaya Dub shared her fan moment while watching Regine Velasquez’s concert, “R3.0,” at the Mall of Asia Arena.
She shared a picture from the concert where Velasquez wore a gold gown and the lights shone brightly onstage.
“The first concert I went to was Ms. Regine’s. I was I think around 10 years old,” she wrote of her first brush with Asia’s Songbird.
“My family were (sic) seated on the general admission area and I can still remember how amused we were even if we were super far from the stage.”
If I am not mistaken, the first concert I went to was Ms. Regine’s. I was I think around 10 years old when my parents took us to a concert. My family were seated on the general admission area and I can still remember how amused we were even if we were super far from the stage, kahit na ga-bigas sa liit si Ate Reg! But tonight, I was fortunate enough to watch the Asia’s songbird live again– and this time up close! It was such a wonderful show and I cannot thoroughly express how amazed and touched I was during the concert. GRABE. Bawat kanta, kahit na yung mga hindi ko alam, tagos ‘gang puso. Thank you Ms. Diane for giving us the chance to watch! And thank you Ms. @reginevalcasid for being you. You always rock big time– in so many ways and so many levels. Thank you for inspiring so many people. Always know that you are worthy to be loved and adored by EVERYONE. I had such a great time tonight! Maraming salamat po sainyo. 😊 p.s. sobrang saya ko din to see the DoReMi trio!!!!!!! Binugbog ko yung katabi ko sa tuwa lol
“But tonight, I was fortunate enough to watch the Asia’s songbird live again—and this time up close!” she shared.
“Bawat kanta, kahit na yung mga hindi ko alam, tagos ‘gang puso (Each song, even those I didn’t know, was heartfelt).”
And one of her favorite parts? “Sobrang saya ko din to see the DoReMi trio!!!!!!! Binugbog ko yung katabi ko sa tuwa lol (I was so happy to see the DoReMi trio! I beat up my seatmate out of joy).”
“Do Re Mi” is a ’90s film starring Donna Cruz, Regine Velasquez and Mikee Cojuangco. The three reunited for Velasquez’ concert.
Joining them was Velasquez’ 5-year-old son, Nate, who has shown an affinity for music.
Cojuangco thanked Mendoza for her kind words and quipped, “Minsan gusto ko ring bugbugin si Donna sa gigil ko sa kanya… Keep smiling Maine, you are gorgeous!”
“Buo na yung linggo ko (My week is complete),” said a starstruck Mendoza, who also wished a remake of their movie.
Cruz replied to Cojuangco, “Sanay ako sa lambing na masakit (I’m used to affection that hurts)!”
DoReMi have remained friends since their movie, with Cruz and Cojuangco expressing support for their friend.
“I look up to you as a ‘true artist’ and just as an amazing person and extraordinary human being!” exclaimed Cruz to her songstress friend.
Cojuangco also thanked their fans. “Hindi niyo po alam kung gaano niyo kami napapasaya at nai-inspire (You don’t know how much you’ve made us happy and inspired). We are so very blessed and honored.” /ra
