I have worked with Kris Aquino in 2007 till 2009. I have had lots of funny and interesting stories writing for the morning talk show Boy and Kris. And most of them are related to Kris' straightforward and frank comments while I briefed her, or while she was on a chit-chat mood. Some may hate her for her comments, but I find her just being herself. And yes... she is one "generous" host. Literally and figuratively. She is every writer's dream host -- walang ka proble-problema sa briefing. She does her own research, has an impeccable vocabulary, can come up with the wittiest questions.

Eight years after... she still hasn't change. She is still the super host that I admire.
Working on her new TV special "TRIP NI KRIS", has led me to new discoveries about Kris which I find very very cute.
Here's the detail of my travels with her... definitely worth blogging about!
FOUR-DAY TAPING CUT SHORT:
We pulled out from Manila kindda late... around 8:30am, on our way to Nueva Ecija. It was a sleepy 3-hour drive, but because I missed traveling, I immersed myself looking at the greeneries and taking some photos from inside the van :)
We reached Harvest Hotel at around 11:30am. Was so hungry, but before we were able to have lunch, we did some last minute changes in the script and research. We were scheduled to roll at around 1pm. Balik ngarag uli :)
After lunch, we briefed Kris in her room. And I felt her excitement going back to what she always loved -- hosting, meeting new people, discovering new things. I am also excited to be working again on mainstream TV :)
