Surprise News Report

It was a surprise for me! Daly City was featured because of the launching of the Bench store in Serramonte Mall. Lloyd La Cuesta was the reporter from KTVU 2 Fox News that did the report and interviews with Kris Aquino (introduced as former Philippine President's daughter) and Richard Gomez (by the way, they showed a shot of Ogie Alcasid too). I was surprised that an American news station would feature a Filipino event. It was a big deal in Serramonte with guards and gates by the store, trying to block thousands of people trying to see the celebrities. There was literally a very long line to the store. Lloyd La Cuesta (who I met by the way in person at a Stanford conference when I was a teenager) also interviewed Ben Chan, in charge of Bench, and Serramonte Mall's General Manager.

In other Pinoy news, the Philippines' ultimate world-class web designer and developer organization, Philweavers, has launched version 3 of its site. Read more about the group here. It looks awesome and am proud to be part of the original founding gang...
