As already mentioned by Maricar (Maria Catubig), I had
the unfortunate opportunity to attend the meet n greet
@ the said restaurant. (by the way, I'm the
frustrated Rossana she was talking about).
I went there thinking i was already late kse the
sponsors (mayette's) mentioned to me, as per our
conversation earlier that afternoon that Regine is
scheduled to step into the restaurant @ 6:30. so I
rushed everything. i got there a bit past 7:00p.m.
Paid the $20 ticket "entrance" fee + my concert
tickets with me and found a table near the supposed
table of Regine. Had my camerassssss ready ( 20
Joycams + my regular camera) and my tape recorder just
in case she says something special to me in person!!!!
Basically, I got everything for her to sign.
I didn't want to eat for I was very excited and
anticipating every moment of chance that she may be
coming in from the front or the back door. the food
was not glamorous nor the place itself... prang mejo
kulang sa pagka professional.
anyway, it was around 8 or so when the restaurant
manager took the microphone and announced the
unfortunate info. Everyone was stunned when they
announced that she is still in manila (??!!!). there
were also some media ppl from filipino newspapers and
as far as i know, there were 2 men who I think were
from the Toronto Star and toronto sun
publishing...nakakahiya.... and the white guy even
said :"I bet this is just a scam". Kse prang daya...I
really think Mayette's should've confirmed first kse
nung kausap ko sila, the owner even said na she
doesn't know who to contact bcuz of the "rumors". so
I thought, nyek! These guys are not even sure as
well??? What happened to the producers who were
supposed to be putting up a meet n greet event!!!!
At that moment, I was looking at all of my cds, and my
collage poster made by my younger bro. these things
all meant so much. but after hearing the whole thing,
and ppl shouting and getting mad, i looked hardly at
regine's face and thought "U know I should hate u
right now! But I won't because this ain't yer fault.
I just wish u guys said something way before and not
waited till the last minute." I didn't want ppl to
think she's a scam or even part of it. I want her to
have a good name internationally. but i got a feeling
that most of her fans there didn't appreciate what
happened. And I feel bad for those who went tonite
for the concert.
Maricar and I wanted to be part of the organization so
bad bcuz from the very start, it wasn't as good and
tight as the ones we hear down in california. All my
frenz were asking why not. Well, Maricar & I would
love to be like those ppl who can text mssg patty and
get in touch w/ whatever is up w/ the songbird. But
Anyway, this is quite long now. It was such a messy
experience. I was depressed last nite (just put
yerself in my position) that my frenz & I just went 2
a karaoke place. The whole nite I had d mic and sang
all d regine songs!!!! LAHAT!!! Wala akong
pinalampas...and my sister was amazed that i finally
hit the high notes...the ones i used to complain to my
choir director about.
that's it...will be waiting for her whenever....hope
she's well though...thanks for the ppl who kept us
informed. And Maricar, soon we will be like Karen &
them...who knows when?

Subject: Re: [rvml --<@] update...direct from CANADA
What makes me more angry is that Im trying to call the producers now...just
before i write this email...and the phone is already "CUT" as in "CUT" no
dialtone, no busy, no voicemail, just an open line...was all these intentional
by the producers? How dare them is all I can say...
*****Sounds like the producer ran away with the money? Coz someone emailed a
friend of mine earlier and she said that when she called the producers, they
denied that they were the producers of regine's concert. Oh gosh! I just wish
that this will be explained thoroughly to the people of toronto. Regine will
suffer the consequences of this SCAM. So it's collabo entertainment huh? We
should warn other filipino talents about this production.. tsktsktsk.. maybe an
expose/report would do?? :)

People I think there was a scam but I think regine has nothing to do with it. Nung nabasa ko ang info dito na may concert siya sa Canada inaantay ko rin si Regine na mag-plug siya nito sa SOP pero wala akong narinig about this. Di ba pag may concert siya like sa US lately nag-announce siya saka nababanggit din ng mga co-host niya pero itong sa Toronto hindi man lang kahit isa. Naku nakakatakot kasi baka ginagamit na naman ang pangalan niya sa mga kung anu-anong pananamantala ng ilan. Regine Fans beware of these things baka sirain nila si Regine.

you just might be right. please be on guard for anything
or any info you think will be helpful to defend her. some
fans are kind of worried and we might not have enough good
fans around to make a difference when they are needed most.
