Fast forward to November 24, 2010...I saw him again, only this time, I was able to talk to him. Yes, I finally had the guts to strike a conversation even for less than 5 minutes. I'm done with school, I don't know if he's able to finish his course though. He had to transfer back to Ateneo then. He's still the same guy, he hasn't changed, except maybe he looked mature now. He lost his babyfats (good for him...How can some people like me seemed to have them forever?). Dingdong Dantes is popular now and he recently won as Best Actor for TV in portraying Cholo in GMA's version of Korean soap opera Stairway to Heaven. We were told that from a shoot in Vigan, Ilocos Sur, he went straight to the presscon just to attend to his commitments. Quite impressive, I say. He must be that professional. And when it was my turn to talk to him, I wanted to make him remember how we met some years ago. But I reallized, it would only reveal my age and what if he had long forgotten that encounter? I don't want to be embarrassed. Anyway, to make this long story short, I had taken photos of him with my Mom, my Kyle and I asked fellow blogger and my good friend, Mommy Vix to take our picture as well. Too bad, she didn't had the chance to take pictures with Dingdong. Another friend,
My impression of Dingdong when he was still unpopular and now that he's famous are the same. I was glad to know that despite gaining his popularity, he's still the same person that I met some years back with a few improvements, of course. I'm no showbiz follower, but it's nice to see movie and TV personalities like Dingdong being able to keep their feet on the ground despite of fame. Am I starstruck? No. I still like Piolo Jose. But it felt good to see Dingdong Dantes again after almost a decade.

What am I doing in a press conference? I'll be writing about that soon on my blog. But for now, that's Dingdong for me.
Special thanks to Mr. Richard Mamuyac and Mommy Vix.
