4. What was your FIRST job?
officially, dapat yung pagiging writer-researcher sa Balitang K when korina sanchez first launched the show. one week old pa lang yung show when my friends and i stepped in, thinking that they needed writers, which is what we are. pero researchers pala kelangan, e iba pala yun. so isa-isa kami nalagas voluntarily. matira matibay. would have wanted to stay but i found out, that early, that i am not for news. or not cut out to work for the news and current affairs dept of a tv station.
ehehehe look where i am now. maybe it's just korina. hehe joke. no, it was actually her julalays. kill! kill! kill!
