The stars of the hit teleserye “The General’s Daughter” proved that a packed schedule is not a problem as they squeezed in time to bond with Kapamilyas in General Santos to join in the city’s celebration of the annual Tuna Festival for the abundant harvest of fish in Sarangani Bay.
Ronnie Alonte and Loisa Andalio’s magnetic chemistry made over 2,000 Kapamilyas go wild in the Kapamilya Karavan event held at the KCC Mall Events Center, while the dashing duo of Arjo Atayde and JC De Vera made hearts flutter as they serenaded the audience.
Kapamilya heartthrob Paulo Avelino also sent a tidal wave of ‘kilig’ among Kapamilyas during his performance on stage. Although “The General’s Daughter” lead star Angel Locsin was unable to join the celebration due to a medical condition, Kapamilyas were touched when she called during the Kapamilya Karavan and promised to visit the Tuna Capital of the country.
Kapamilyas in GenSan, were also treated to fun games and were entertained by the lively hosts of ABS-CBN’s “Magandang Umaga South Central Mindanao” Dyll and Joey C, as well as MOR DJs- Justine and Betina.
Meanwhile, the fun and love doesn’t end in GenSan as the Kapamilya Karavan heads to Naga City for the Penafrancia Festival with the stars of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” led by Coco Martin with Yassi Pressman, Basilyo, Smuglazz, PJ Endrinal, and Empoy on September 28. Kapamilyas can catch them at the SM City Naga open parking area at 4 pm, or like in previous festivals, watch the program via livestreaming on the Choose Philippines YouTube channel.
