Wazzup Pilipinas as Special Guest at Radyo Agila of Eagle Broadcasting Corporation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger, Ross Del Rosario, suddenly became a special guest at Radyo Agila's "Kain Tayo" radio show of Eagle Broadcasting Corporation (EBC), the broadcasting company responsible for the more popularly known Net25 TV channel and also its Pinas FM 95.5 FM radio station.

I was there because of an invite by a fellow blogger who was supposed to share the limelight with me, along with other bloggers she invited to join us. But due to unavoidable circumstances involving an accident within her family, she suddenly had to cancel the guesting and reschedule it for next weekend. Everyone was informed of the reschedule including me so I decided to just attend an event to be held somewhere in Makati city instead. However, I suddenly received a message from her asking me to continue with the guesting. It was only later that I fully realized I will be on my own.

With just one hour notice, I bravely traversed the traffic jam infested Metro Manila by commuting using the dreaded mass public transportation system known as the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) and other vehicles. From Makati to Central Avenue of Quezon City, I was jumping from one mode of transportation to another. From the MRT to a jeepney, from a jeepney to a tricycle, I made it in time for the show barely out of breath so my first request the minute I arrived was a glass of water.

The "Kain Tayo" radio show, aired every Sunday from 12 noon to 1 pm at Radyo Agila DZEC 1602, is hosted by Belle Surara, also an executive producer of the radio station, along with Cynthia Vallesteros, her partner who was on sick leave that day. Lucky me because this allowed me to seat on the anchor spot along side Miss Belle.

As the name implies, "Kain Tayo" talks about food and other related topics like cooking tips, restaurant dining, culinary specialties from different regions and localities, etc., As a food blogger, I was asked to share my experience dining at many reputable restaurants located in several locations around the country.

Since it was not my first time to guest at a radio show, I was quite relaxed and comfortable in answering Miss Belle's inquiries which she noticed as well saying "Hindi kinakabahan ang guest ko."

There was also a phone patch interview with a chef who shared a recipe with us, and who eventually became a Facebook friend when he sent an SMS if he could add me as a friend since he was planning to soon professionalize his cooking specialty into a business.

Later on when our hour ended, I got to meet Moira Lacambra and her parents, who were the guests at the next radio show where they feature singers. Moira Lacambra started singing at a very young age, and is now very successful in her career. She used to specialize in singing Bosa Nova type of songs but she now dabbles into singing the more popular and faster pop songs appropriate for her young age of 15. I will share more about Moira at a separate article soon.

Miss Belle, on a different date, also gave me a short tour of the EBC building where I got to see some of the offices and the actual set where they take the Net25 TV shows like "Ang Pambansang Almusal", and the "Eagle News".
