Kathryn Bernardo, Ylona Garcia, Gabbi Garcia, and More Share Their Best Fan Memories at the #PEPListYear3
On its third year now, PEP hosted the PEP List Awards at the Grand Ballroom of Crowne Plaza Hotel. We caught up with some of the stars who walked the red carpet and asked them, "What's the best thing their fans have done for them?" Read on to find out their answers!
"Support me, basically. And get a dog for me and a hoverboard and contacts and a phone, an iPhone 6." —Ylona Garcia
"Support. And a pair of Vans." —Bailey May
"They travel just to see me. Some are from Bataan; they come from all over the Philippines just to see me. They go to all of my shows. That's really heartwarming." —Gabbi GarciaADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
It's hard to choose one but maybe 'yung every time pumupunta sila sa mall shows. For example, may show kami in this certain area, mag-fa-fly pa talaga sila para makanood. 'Yung iba kahit pa abroad, pupunta sila. So 'yung efforts na pinag-iipunan nila— the ticket—just to see me and DJ. 'Yun 'yung priceless. —Kathryn BernardoADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
'Di ko ine-expect. It's a small get-together. Ginawan nila ako ng isang booklet. It was a really thick booklet of all my years in showbiz, all the teleseryes I've done. She like kept photos and images of all the characters I played and all the quotes I've done and... Basta marami siya nilagay. She even put messages in a bottle, stuff like that. Nakita ko na sobra 'effort yung ginawa niya. It was really sweet. Sobrang na-appreciate ko. —Diego LoyzagaADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Para sa'kin, actually lahat ng ginagawa ng fan, super importante na sa'kin kase nag-effort sila. 'Tsaka siguro yung pinaka-importane sa'kin na sinuportahan nila ako through thick and thin. Sinuportahan nila ako from day 1 hanggang ngayon, sa mga nag-ho-hold on pa rin sa'kin. Chine-cherish ko lahat ng mga fans ko dahil kung 'di dahil sa kanila, wala ako ngayon. Hindi ko nagagawa yung gusto kong gawin. So para sa'kin, lahat—kahit onti lang, kahit simpleng vote, kahit i-like lang 'yung photo ko—super thankful na 'ko dun. —Andrea BrillantesADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Throw me a birthday party. It's gonna happen real soon again on September 27. So I just told them to simmer down 'cause it's not just about the food, birthday presents. It's just being with them and thanking them for all the support. —Robi Domingo
Last year sa birthday ko, they threw a surprise party for me. Like akala ko bumibili lang ako ng cupcakes at a store na dinala ako ng mom ko pero nung pagbukas ko ng door, everyone was there. There were balloons spelling my name and it was super touching talaga. First time na anyone has ever done that for me. —Ysabel OrtegaADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Well actually, there's no one thing naman for fans to do things for us eh. It's them being there to support us, that's the most wonderful thing a fan could give to someone, especially to us artists. So with that, that's more than enough for us, that's very special. —Alden RichardsADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Surprise me on my birthday. —Arjo Atayde
Actually, they've done a lot already for me but they made me.... You know those photos that are made up of photos? Binigyan nila ako nu'n. —Bianca Umali

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
