MAPE TV 5’s Talentadong Pinoy Man!!

Matagal na po to pero post ko parin!!
Si JR Mape! I had the privilege to interview him for THE CROSSROADS last …. I forgot the date..really long time ago! hehehehe.It was the first time he won in Talentadong Pinoy. It made to the news around the campus not just in Camarin where he truly belongs but also in the 5 campuses of UCC. He’s an AB Math 3rd year then. He was really fun & easy to talk to. I’m personally amazed with this guy because he was able to develop those talents from scratch. He just got some of his first instruments from junk! He can do dice stacking, rubiks (blindfolded), play the guitar, violin & a lot more. He’s from no musical clan or whatever. He’s just a simple guy who tried his luck to showcase his unique talent on TV. He even played violin for me once & I wa struly mesmerized. Ilokano din pala siya.

Here’s a video clip:

Based on some background research I did on the net about him, I have found out that he joined different rubiks contest locally & internationally he ranked 4th, 3rd sometimes 1st! That was really quite unique for a pinoy isn’t it? He laong with his younger brother also appeared in WOWOWEE, EATBULAGA & SIS. (spell exposure?)

Although most of us UCCians are poor we stil strive & compete with others. We also have talents that if harnessed can be a source of pride for our fellow students.

We are used to doing things from scratch. We are used of getting the best out of the least. We learn to take advantage of every environment we land to improve ourselves & not just wait of what the university can offer. The real world is our training ground! So who said we lack facilities??

BS PSYCHOLOGY Majors in ABS-CBN It’s Showtime

university of caloocan city, working student, buhay working student, phone english teacher, Philippines,,

I was surprised to have a call from my sister & receive the news that my classmastes are on TV!! I quickly looked for a TV but there was none in our boarding house. So I just settled in my sister’s narration of what was happening already on TV.
Last Dec. 15, 15 of my classmates & friends from Psychology department bravely treaded the path to the ABS-CBN office & registered themselves as audiences. They got a little help from a tour guide once assigned there (Moises Fuentes & company). It was such a great exoperience for them so I am really happy & proud!
By the way, ate Realyn Castillo was given the privilege to act as a host of the show for some short while & she did it very well.
To view the said episode of IT”S SHOWTIME click here. But beware, the video is not that clear & it is also kind of blurred. Be patient. I am trying my best to look for a clearer copy but its unavailble from the web!
