Piolo Pascual: To Charo and Gabby with love
“I have to close my eyes and open it again. I couldn’t believe it.”
That was Piolo Pascual, appearing a bit stunned, after ABS-CBN top executives — Gabby Lopez and Charo Santos-Concio — asked for his autograph during the recent launch of the coffeetable book, Piolo Revealed.
Gabby and Charo made Piolo sign the respective copies of the book, which contains photos taken and compiled by noted lensman Raymund Isaac.
“I have to pinch myself that my big bosses came up to me and asked me to sign their books,” Piolo said. “It was rather hard to believe that.”
Despite the dizzying success he’s been enjoying, Piolo apparently remains grounded. Without letting success get into his head, he is grateful to the people who have helped him along the way.
The 200-page, limited edition coffeetable book features Piolo’s never-before-seen photos taken by Raymund, plus short interviews with the premiere actor. There are also scenic shots in Palawan which Piolo himself captured through his own lens.
One of the highlights of the coffeetable book are photos in 3D format, that’s why the package comes with 3D glasses for the reader to further appreciate the shots.
Piolo and Raymund’s professional association dates a long way back, from the time Piolo did his first starring role in director Mel Chionglo’s Lagarista, 10 years ago. Since then, Piolo has been working closely with Raymund for the actor’s required pictorials, especially for product endorsements.
Also present during the launch at Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street were ABS-CBN executives Deo Endrinal, Johnny Manahan, Mariole Alberto, director Joyce Bernal, Gretchen Barretto, Dr. Vicki Belo and daughter Cristalle Belo Henares, Ervic Vijandre of Survivor Philippines and Piolo’s now-popular nanny, Moi Bien.
